After that I’m not certain at this point. My brother does have internet access but I have no idea about […]Read on... →
So Much Stuff, Not Enough Time
On December 16, 2007 By Ben Borthwick
Apologies for the lack of updates recently, University has been stupidly busy (more on that later) so this will probably the last post before the obligatory Christmas one.

B’s Top Everything of 2006
On January 3, 2007 By Ben Borthwick

Others have done thing such as their favourite songs or albums, others TV shows and movies. In a vague attempt to be […]Read on... →

OK, a little bit of a rant here, and I dare say as the nature of the subject I'm posting about...
Welcome to the blog of Ben Borthwick, News Editor of VideoGamer.com & a Games Writer based in the UK.
I've written for various places including VideoGamer.com, the Official Xbox Magazine & website, Official PlayStation Magazine, Edge, PC Gamer Magazine, GamesRadar and many others. You can find plenty of examples of my work on the What Have I Done page
This is my blog in which I commit to the internet a range of thoughts and ramblings on various subjects, although the majority of them are going to be gaming related ones. These views are inevitably and assuredly my own and not those of any employer or otherwise past or present.
You can find out more about me on the Who Am I page including details on how to hire me, if you like what you see here.
