    By Fleur Clarke

    Gloriously geeky lifestyle apps Visiting the dry cleaners, filing your tax return, going for a run – it’s all rather tedious. But what if these mundane chores actually helped save the world?

    Friday Favourites: Fantasy Games

    By Ranvinder Singh

    Friday Favourites: Fantasy Games Fantasy has spawned countless board games and video games. Countless boards, dice, maps, pens, notes and cards have been broken, scratched, and lost in playing fantasy roleplaying games.

    My favourite female video game characters

    By Aimee Oliver

    My favourite female video game characters I’ve been playing a lot of Skyrim recently (have quite a way to go before I’m a threat to anyone but myself and a few scurrying foxes) and thinking about the representation of women in video games. Growing up, it felt that female characters were often side-lined, underdeveloped, or non-existent. Nowadays, there seems to be some improvement! MORE

    By Aimee Oliver

    Why I love Mass Effect So we’ve all heard of Mass Effect, the epic videogame set in space, where the choices you make affect the storyline (well, apart from that ending) but what exactly are the best parts of the game? For those of you newbies to the series, or those stalwarts and vanguards of the game, let’s take a look at ten reasons why I love this series. MORE
