In a special news episode, I looked at the biggest of the announcements of 2018’s E3 conference, including The Last of Us Part 2, Kingdom Hearts III, and Manhunter: a Jaws-style game where you play as the shark.
“Paul Rose, aka Mr Biffo, is the mind behind Teletext gaming magazine Digitiser, as well as its modern-day reincarnation Digitiser 2000, entertainment website Bubblegun, and the short film series Mr Biffo’s Found Footage.”
His latest project is a gaming show branded under the Digitiser name, now live on Kickstarter. He’s agreed to talk to us, because we somehow managed to convince him that we’re professionals. “
“An angular chap blows a single fart sound from a trumpet, then looks in a confused fashion at it. We know how he feels. But there’s no time to be confused, as the next trailer is even more bewildering. A guy in a bathtub introduces himself as “bathtub guy” and tells us all about the game that he’s in from Squanch Games. It’s called Trover Saves the Universe and it’s super colourful, very artistically interesting (think Gang Beasts meets Ratchet and Clank), and it sounds an awful lot like Rick and Morty.”
With the announcement of a new trilogy of Star Wars films, Moving Pictures covered the news in a brief video. Written and narrated by me, this is an example of some voice work with a serious reporting tone.
This week on the GrinCast, we talked about Runescape Mobile, Gigantic shutting down, as well as chatting with David Brevik about his latest title It Lurks Below.
We also spoke about Monster Hunter World’s sales figures and which games will soon be in Freebie Feelers.
In this researched documentary video I take a look at Universal’s arcade classic Mr Do!, exploring the history of the game, and its ultimate demise.
Charting the personal history of two of GameGrin’s team, this video looks at some of the history of the Micro Machines franchise. It was created to herald the launch of the latest game in the series, released in 2017. I co-wrote this video, as well as voicing and editing.
This is an example of one of my news videos created for GameGrin’s YouTube Channel. I host these once every fortnight, alternating with my collegue James Bralant. This video is written, presented, and edited by me.
This was a joint project between myself and James Bralent to present an irreverent round-up of 2017’s gaming news. We took inspiration from sources such as Charlie Brooker’s Screen Wipe and The Day Today.
It’s the uncertain psychological terror that will always get me with a game. It’s often said that what you don’t see is usually the most terrifying thing and that definitely rings true for me.
With that in mind, I’ve compiled my list of the five most disturbing foes that you will face in gaming.
“My Virtual Gay Boyfriend is a dating simulation game designed specifically for the gay male. It boasts hundreds of guys to choose from, all with unique personalities and appearances. “
“Although it had already been announced that a new Dizzy title was to be revealed yesterday alongside a kickstarter of new biography of the twins by Fusion Retro Books, few realised that the reveal would be the long-lost missing title.”
“I can’t stress enough how much I enjoyed Ni no Kuni II. It’s one of the best JRPGs in years and it’s a must-buy for fans of the genre. It’s cute, thoroughly addictive and has more tweaks and statistics than you can shake a sword at. If you enjoyed the first game, you will love this.”
