I look forward to the UK Games Expo every year, it's one of the friendliest and most interesting conventions out there. I love the build up, making a list of the games I'm looking forward to playing and the designers I'm looking forward to speaking to at the Press Previews. Most of this comes from the emails I get sent in the weeks leading up to the Expo, and I try to get around everybody.

Right from the outset, the humour that permeates most other Lego games is on show with Dr Sattler's ability to dive into a festering pile of Dinopoo and unearth an object vital for the quest...Read more
Welcome to a trip down nostalgia lane. My Final Fantasy career started in the long forgotten days of youth when my cousin introduced me to Final Fantasy 8. The game followed a surly young man named Squall and his quest to save the world with an odd party of people who eventually he called friends.
