Hey all, some of you I have already met, others I look forward to it, I'm the new news reporter in case you didn't know. I feel privileged to write for a great site like Nintendo Life. I have already posted a few articles, you may have seen them already, if not no worries. The community is just great, from what I've seen it looks like it could go for Number 1 on the internet! I hope to meet more of you in the near future. Anyway a little bit about me. Well Command and Conquer on the PS1 was the beginning of my love for games. What a game! From then on games have remained my favourite hobby; there really is a lot of enjoyment to be had from them! I have always been interested in being a writer and have decided to focus on game journalism as it combines two of my favourite things writing and gaming. Shigeru Miyamoto is my legend in gaming; as he’s done so much for it, from the genre defining Mario 64 to the equally brilliant Pikmin series. Currently I am studying Media and Combined English for my A levels, and hope to do a creative writing degree or English degree of some sort in the near future. The gaming industry is expanding rapidly and I can safely say I want to be there while it’s doing this; my ultimate dream being to attend E3. Gaming, as some people would say is ftw!

Anyway I'll do my best to bring you guys the best possible news because.......

1. Thats my job.
2. You guys are awesome!

Yes its official I was named by the great Darren Calvert. I also look forward to the inevitable question, are you related to Ryan Giggs?

Catch you around ;)

Hey Jamie, welcome to Nintendo Life! I've tried to keep up with everything you've written for us so far but it's been very hectic here, but I really like what I've read!

I hope you enjoy it here at NL and I'm sure if you have any issues the team will be happy to help out!

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

With a Name like Giggsy, he better be at least one of the two.

Welcome aboard, Giggsy.

And yes, hopefully you can join Corbie, Prosody and I for our big E3 Road Trip. I've already made the sandwiches, and put together a Best of Raffi Schoolbus Singalong mix-tape. We're ready to roll.
