Family Gamer UK had a surprising boost in traffic last week. Adding my parents’ rough guides was a small step but one that proved to connect with mums, dads, kids and even aunties. I’ve been playing games for a long time, so when I got married and had kids I wanted to share my hobby. […]

If YouTube Let’s Play videos are any indication, ‘Roblox’ is currently giving ‘Minecraft’ a run for its money with kids looking for games to flex their creative muscles.
It IS possible for a loner/geek to enjoy his college career and gain the independence and confidence that comes so easily to his extroverted and popular peers.
Mayim Bialik is best known for her child acting career as the title character on Blossom. She currently plays the nerdy Amy Farrah Fowler on The Big Bang Theory and holds a real-life PhD in neuroscience. I really want to adore her, but then she had to go ruin it all by practicing unsafe parenting.
Ever since I started homeschooling my kids, I’ve been searching for a fun, age-appropriate Spanish program that doesn’t cost a lot of money. I didn’t start learning Spanish until the 5th grade, so I wasn’t sure where to start with …

After various niggles and oddities with last year’s game I was excited to be able to sit down with Reza Elghazi yesterday (Producer for both Wii and 360/PS3 Tiger Woods games) and talk about next years version. The great discussion …
I’ve always been intrigued by the various attempts to turn Nintendo’s handheld consoles into productivity devices. Ever since the days of the Gameboy Color camera and printer it’s seem like we’ve been on the edge of something really useful – while at the same time really cumbersome.

After spending my waking hours in the office working through the latest pony or cooking games on the DS, it’s sometime a relief to get home and unwind with some mindless zombie killing (once the kids are in bed of course). This month I’m spoilt for choice. While I was waiting for my copy of […]

I often wonder where games are going. Faster, bigger, brasher and more impressive than ever before – but are they actually more fun? This often leads me to return to my bookshelf of old favorites – games like Wipeout, Super Mario World or Madden. I love to play those classics that somehow get better as […]
