Jamie lives in the UK with his wife, daughter and two cats. He's been a gamer for as long as he can remember and his tastes run something to the eclectic (this guy will play anything!). Old LucasArts adventure games are his go-to guilty pleasure and he considers Assassin's Creed II to be the finest game he's ever played (make of that what you will!).
