Sam Tyler - Editor

When he finally managed to get a go on his older brother’s brand new ZX Spectrum, unbeknownst to Sam he was embarking on a lifetime love of games and being British. When Sir Clive Sinclair stopped making computers Sam had to admit that he needed to buy some consoles made further afield and he has not looked back since; owning every single console since the Super Nintendo.

As one of four, he learned fast to share a multi-tap and play games such as ‘Bomberman’ and ‘Snowboard Kids’. Now as a Librarian he believes in world peace and harmony, shunning the world of competitive gaming in favour of co-op. You can find him online in a variety of places from shooting terrorists in ‘Rainbow 6 Vegas’ to tending his garden in ‘Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise’.

As a Librarian, Sam is also an avid reader and would encourage you all to try a book once in a while (and keep him in a job).

Crimsonland makes it onto PS4 only 10 Years Later than the PC

The Playstation 4 is a beast of a machine, but owners of said console may find themselves playing mostly downloadable games as it is also an Indie game darling.  More independent fun is on the way on July 15th in the form of Crimsonland, a 4 player local co-op shooter that has the whiff of Geometry Wars about it, but is actually based on a 2003 PC original.
