Description
Shaun is a Yorkshire-born, Brighton-dwelling socialite/recluse who has been into games since a young age, when an insane AI shot him with an experimental laser and transmitted his avatar into a life-and-death digital arena. Fortunately the game in question was Sid Meier’s Civilization and, subsequently, our hero learned a lot of fairly superficial information about mankind’s history and otherwise survived unscathed. Shaun collects stupid old consoles that were rubbish and no one likes. He recently acquired a 1st-gen Nokia N-Gage and a Philips CD-i. He also writes intermittently for other publications, some of which can be found aggregated at Nostalgia For Infinity, and plays in a punk band called Wrecktheplacefantastic.
