We at GodisaGeek have one mission: To bring you the best news, reviews, previews, videos and podcasts that we can, whilst keeping all our content to a high standard of quality. At heart, the site’s staff is made up of a diverse, passionate team with all manner of tastes. But the fundamental core is that we are all gamers, like you. If something is bad, we’ll tell you it’s bad, and when we love something, we want the enthusiasm to drip from the pages, to rub off on you, the readers.
Any press releases can be sent to PR@GodisaGeek.com, which is also the address you can reach the editorial team. We can work with any and all review or preview code, retail or debug.
Go Hardcore, or Go Home!
Introducing the GodisaGeek team…
Calvin Robinson, Executive Editor & Owner
The longest standing member of the GodisaGeek team, a PC loving indie game fan. Plays more MMORPGs that we believe actually exist. You’ll also find Calvin every week on the podcast, and on his YouTube channel, Bros With Fros. Northern at heart, but will deny it if pushed. @CalvinRobinson on Twitter.
Adam Cook, Editor-in-Chief
Oversees all content that hits the site. Believer that video games can be something more than throwaway entertainment, but also loves platformers, go figure. Just wants a quiet life, but is too full of rage to allow it to happen. Uses the one attractive photograph of himself that exists as a profile pic, so as to be able to stealth in and out of meetings in real life.
Mick Fraser, Features Editor
“Loving father, inexhaustible gamer, occasional writer, sporadic editor, constant worrier, inconsistent lover.”
His words, not ours. We’d just call him a dynamite guy who’s not afraid to strip down to his boxers when the call comes. Reviews more games than most people eat hot dinners. The man, the myth, the legend, the Northerner.
Dan Naylor, News Editor
RPG addict, he had to sell Skyrim as it interfered with his real life too much and stopped him gettings news scoops. At one point he dreamt of being the very best, like no one ever was, to catch them would have been his real test. But they kept introducing more of the buggers so he gave up. Dan is also a terrible winner at FIFA/PES.
Mike Stubbs, eSports Editor
Mike will play any game on any device, and detests the idea of a console war. When he’s not playing a mid-carry in Dota 2 he can be found watching Dota 2, and SMITE, and other eSports. He likes eSports, okay? Loves sports, in general, actually, and has become the default “AMERICA!” sports guy. Also doesn’t understand the idea of symmetry in Twitter profile pictures.
Nick Gillham, Staff Writer
It’s about ethics in games journalism, you see. Nick is a talented man who is far too modest for his own good. Not yet blocked by Kamiya, he loves all manner of games, but for some reason (like a few of our staff, actually) can’t, or won’t stop playing Destiny. Oh and that picture isn’t him, either.
Richard Simpson, Staff Writer
Lives a double life, and another Destiny fan. Lies to himself that it’s better if you level up in the crucible, but secretly knows he’s addicted. Fan of RPGs, kind hearted soul. Don’t abuse his trust or Adam will come and kill you. We’re not joking. As with Nick, this picture isn’t Richard.
Mikhail Madnani, Staff Writer
Part time app developer part time JRPG and indie game enthusiast, Mikhail Madnani spends far too much time listening to video game music on Vinyl like a true hipster from India. He also complains a lot.
Dan Murphy, Staff Writer
As the runt of the group at the tender age of 18, Dan is somewhat ‘uncultured’ in video games and has unfortunately missed out on so many of the classics you know and love. So much so that his two favourite games ever are Barnyard The Video Game and Jaws: Unleashed. Yeah, really. Despite that though, he’s still a massive lover of the medium and will give any game a go, well, along as it isn’t scary!
Jonny Lewis, Staff Writer
Rejoining this after a hiatus, he’s left the PC master-race, and become a member of the console-clan. Now an Xbox One owner, he pretends he doesn’t long for the safety and power of his almighty PC. Just like Sean (above), he’s a Saints fan. Saints in crisis is their motto. Saints… in crisis.
Ruk Cooray, Operations
Ruk does advertising operations / product development. When he’s not working on GodisaGeek, making sure things run smoothly, he’s a Walking Dead fan, and has good taste in food and drink. The Father Jack of the GodisaGeek team.
Robin Parker, Staff Writer
Robin is a huge fan of the point & click adventure game genre, as well as a keen retro specialist. One day his prince will come, bearing gifts of Shenmue 3, but until that day he’ll have to continue to wonder why it hasn’t happened, like so many others…
Sean Smith, Staff Writer
A Southampton supporting Gypsy gentleman who has been writing on and off for websites and magazines for over a decade. A huge fan of Nintendo, family man Sean has at least one gaming related tattoo, keeps tropical fish in his spare time, and thinks GodisaGeek definitely should have given Fire Emblem: Awakening a 10/10.
