About Gareth Newnham

A former newspaper reporter turned games journalist. Gareth hates talking about himself in the third person, but loves video games and still has hazy nostalgia for long summers of four-player GoldenEye, cheating his way through Mega Man 2, and spending far too much time bunking off school to play Metal Slug in a small seaside arcade on the south coast of England. 

When he's not ranting about how Indie games are the future of the industry or insisting Sensible Soccer is still the best football game ever made, he's painting tiny men, women and aliens to join his ever-growing horde of ruthless capitalists and bug-worshipping cultists sticking it to the man in the 41st Millenium.
