A secretly eccentric college student who writes occasionally for Gamehubs. His gaming interests mostly involve shooting things, but also include sneaking around in sizeable environments, slashing at things and commanding glorious armies. He prefers his turn-based strategy games to involve miniatures and dice however, and his current favourite game is NieR: Automata.

With a name like Sword with Sauce: Alpha, I never expected the shield to feel like the main star of this excellent indie action game. But it does, and using it often makes me feel that the game should have been called Captain America Simulator instead. It's that good. Funnily enough, the m... Read More
