why i’ve decided not to rank my top ten games of 2011

Johnny, you got some 'splanin to do. As you may recall, I made a blog post recalling my top ten games of this year to date at that particular time in a certain order. I've since deleted that post because I've now realised, after the quality amount of games we've gotten this year, it would [...]

2011 – what a year

Light, I have reached you. *collapses* As you will have seen by now, most of the VG247 CNT (Core News Team) have finished for the year, myself included. This year has been utterly brilliant and, dare I say it without sounding like a saddo, the best year ever. I've met some awesome people, seen some [...]

the twitter elite follow list 2011 – gaming edition

. Follow these peeps. They're awesome. End of. They'll provide you with a wealth of news, are good fun personally and won't let up. Of course, if you want to follow me as well, I'm @JohnnyCullen.

some features

Writey writey. Recently, I did some features for VG247 that I am quite proud of. If you haven't seen them, I've decided to post them here and highlight some odd bits from those pieces. Revelations shows Assassin's Creed in need of a break: When you have six studios working on one single game, it’s time [...]

saints and devils: the story of london – part one (games media awards)

Awe and shock. I currently find myself writing this in the bed of my hotel room in Southwark, thinking back on the near 48 hours I've nearly spent here in London, just one month after the amazing Eurogamer Expo. And well, they have been amazing, bar one thing. But that I'll get into later. Time [...]

a love letter to eurogamer expo 2011

What can I say? After years of literally trying to get over personally - 2008 was a writeoff, I tried to save money for 2009 but was impossible and I was still missing my passport for 2010 - I finally got over to Eurogamer Expo this year. Now, I was going over for work, but [...]

goodbye, steve jobs

. "You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." - Steve Jobs. There are moments where you'll remember where you were when they happened. I can't seem to remember too many of these [...]

five games, one fall 2011

Difficult. GAF has an interesting thread up asking the question: "If you could only buy 5 new release games from Sep-Dec..." This is literally the worst question to be asked in the fall period, our big blockbuster period in an industry which has seen Zumba Fitness on top of the UK charts for more than [...]

love letter to gamescom 2011

It wasn't good. It was so amazingly amazing, probably one of the best weeks of my life, to be honest. Last year was good, but it was brought down by the fact I had lost my passport already. This year, it was just straight-out amazing. Nothing horribly bad went wrong, and I've left Cologne meeting [...]
