Welcome to my perpetual gaming reviews. My quest is to look for that one Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, DS lite and PSP game that links my own ongoing life to it.

I love games that captures my thoughts and gives me confidence that I could play this game, progress in this game, grow in this game.

Fallout 3 is a meandering adventure through an irradiated post apocalyptic world inhabited by robots, mutants and heavily armed opposing forces all fighting for control of the scraps. This world is as much a character in the story as the people themselves, and the loneliness of the place stayed with me the whole time I was playing... read now

Costume Quest is an immediately accessible take on the role-play genre. Stripped of technical complexity, multiple stats and complicated battles I found a game whose simple charms and infectious humour stayed with me until the very end... read now

Dragon Ball Raging Blast 2 360 impresses with flashy graphics, but its simplified mechanics fail to leave a lasting impression. Fans of the manga, though, will undoubtedly love the amount of content on offer as well as the presentation. .. read now

What sort of gamer are you?

Our columnists each focus on a particular perspective and fall into one of the following types of gamers:
