ISayItsNotOkay

A video caught my attention on Twitter today that made me cry. I am too old to cry at a video. But I cried all the same. It’s an awareness advert regarding the kind of harassment that women get from a young age. And, I hate to sound so whiny, but everything in the video […]

PF Magic Catz Review

I had this game when I was a little girl, and I remember being quite underwhelmed by it but it was one of those instances where I had pestered my mum for it, so I had to play it. PF Magic released Dogz in 1995, and then Catz in 1996. Both games were pretty much […]

Impostor Syndrome

The first time I came across the phrase “impostor syndrome”, I was sat with my friend ‘D’ at university a couple of months ago. We were talking about how to get into the games industry, when he suddenly became pale and put in his earphones. Knowing he has an anxiety disorder, I left him to […]

My Odd Relationship with Alcohol

I’m making yet another conscious decision to cut down my alcohol consumption. This is approximately the 100 millionth time I have made this decision, and it’s always the last time, yes yes really it is and I’m totally not going to relapse this time. While I would not consider myself an alcoholic, I do have […]

I’m writing a self help book.

One of my friends who I made through Digitiser is one of those people who seems to really have their goals sorted. Imran, in his late 30s, is very successful in the creative arts and I must admit, when I first met him I was incredibly intimidated. People who are headstrong and focused make me […]

Anxiety Central

I’ve been trying to think of just one aspect of my life that isn’t affected in some manner by anxiety. And I can literally not think of a single thing. I tend to usually go about my day with a sort of soft, underlying feeling of dread no matter where I am or what I’m […]

The Palmtex SuperMicro – rare and rubbish console

Have you guys ever seen one of these before? This is a Palmtex super micro. It was brought to my attention just recently, and I’d never even heard of it. It’s a small handheld gaming device released in the 80s, and it’s incredibly rare. Unfortunately there isn’t that much information available about it, but I’ve […]

[Sad Post] What Do I Mean when I Say I’m Suicidal

The first time I had serious thoughts about taking my own life, I was 15. I wasn’t expecting to do it, but I remember one evening sat in my bedroom thinking about what would be the easiest way to do it. School was a nightmare for me. I had reached that age where sexuality starts […]

Accounting+ on PSVR Review

I’ve never got on with Rick and Morty. I one hundred percent understand why people like it so much – it is daft, it’s quirky, it involves interesting characters – but for me, just halfway through an episode my ears start to hurt. The screeching voice of Morty annoys me, and that forced stutter Rick […]

My Most-Played Game

One of the things I’ve been studying in my MA is playability – or the science of our addiction to video gaming. I’ll be honest, I have the attention span of a goldfish so I sort of read the books about it without actually taking much info in, but it got me thinking about the […]
