I always hate writing about myself, it's such a pain in the ass to know where I should start.

I'm twenty-two years young and love to play, as you may have already guessed. When WolfsGamingBlog.com started up it was simply because I found writing to be a good form of stress relief for when my Cystic Fibrosis was getting me down or simply because I had been having a bad week. When I started writing I never dreamed that people would actually read it, or that it would ever get this big. It's mind boggling.

My writing isn't the best, but through trial, error and the comments of readers I strive to improve it so I can provide fair reviews. My ultimate goal is to prove that not everyone in the gaming media are corrupt idiots intent on delivering false reviews.

Other than that I'm a fully qualified lifeguard and used to teach first-aid and life-saving skills to kids. What more is there to say? Hmmm, well I love music, reading and films. I'm a drummer, enjoy going swimming and tend to get distracted by shiny objects.

Is that a fifty-pence?

Kingston HyperX Cloud Revolver Headset Review – Click, Bang

It’s the graphics that tend to get all of the attention as people lavish praise upon the art style, the level of pure technical prowess on display, the lighting and the colors. We tend to put the emphasis on what we can see, which is a shame because well-done audio is just as important when it comes to creating a gaming masterpiece or a fantastic movie. And what makes wonderful audio design even better? A good set of speakers or headphones, of course.

Star Trek: Ascendancy Review – Resistance Is Futile

I was practically raised on Star Trek. Not the original series where Shatner was so hammy you could have a lovely Sunday roast, but with the philosophical musings of The Next Generation, the tenacity of the Voyager crew and the wonderful characters of Deep Space Nine. What I’m attempting to say is that Star Trek is ingrained in my personality and it’s a franchise which I have quite the fondness for, so a boardgame that uses the famous Gene Roddenberry license is one that has my attention.

 Timeline: British History Review – Should Have Paid More Attention In History Class

History can be a dull and difficult subject to become invested in. In many ways it serves little practical purpose on a day-to-day basis. It’s not often that you suddenly find yourself confronted with a pressing need to name the date of the Battle of Hastings or to tell someone when tophats became a thing in Britain. And yet history is important because it can teach us so many valuable lessons about life. If you can get past its initial dryness, history can be a fascinating subject full of breathtaking stories and weird facts. Timeline attempts to prove this with a simple but enjoyable family card game that requires very little learning and plays in about ten minutes. Plus it comes packaged in a nice little tin.I mean, just look at how cute it is.
