Ut oh, Gamergate

When I was invited to write for this I thought what’s topical and will get me hate mail….so gamergate it is then. Lets start with what gamergate isn’t. Its not about games journalism.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel review, by G

First off, a confession. I love Borderlands games. Always have done. Ever since the first time I played the first instalment, I’ve dug the run ‘n’ gun gameplay, the endless looting, the wacky characters, the (literally) millions of different weapons.
