Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    Look i’m not the biggest fan of SK,but i don’t see how nu-metro getting the distribution rights is a good thing. Their cinema’s are seriously over priced and i’ve rented nu-metro distributed dvd where u can see the ign logo on some of the trailers on the dvd. Imo this is not a good thing.
