Here at Digitally Downloaded, we’ve gathered together the wittiest and most passionate crew of gamers we could find within the worldwide reaches of the Internet to bring you the absolute best news and reviews on any and everything digitally downloadable. As the gaming industry rapidly evolves from a largely retail based industry to one that’s more digitally focused, our sole purpose is to be your trustworthy guide into this exciting new industry.
With a laidback “coffee house” approach, our talented team brings a warm writing style to the table that’s as easy-going as the conversation shared with a cup of Joe around the morning table with friends. Whether it’s the day’s leading news story, or the hottest new releases, here at Digitally Downloaded, our doors (comment sections) are always open and we invite you to stay awhile and enjoy the chat.
Matt Sainsbury, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief
If you're keen on JRPGs, RPGs or those interactive spread sheets otherwise known as "Wargames," Matt's your man. The weirder the game, the better, and you'll generally find him happiest when playing those JRPGs that have sold ten copies around the world. Matt cares not what platform he plays these games on, as he has them all. Just don't ask his opinion of a game before he's had his ten morning coffees. He's cranky then!
Christopher Ingram, Editor
A roughneck by day and a writer/editor by night -- this self-proclaimed Indie Gaming fanatic is as hardcore as they come, both in the virtual and real world alike. Just don’t call him a “fanboy” – we did tell you he’s a roughneck!
Jason Micciche, News Editor
From deep within his operations bunker in the media capital of the world, Jason scours the landscape of video gaming for news you must know (and watches '80s cartoons on the Internet). A gamer since the prehistoric days of the Atari 2600, Jason is also a self-professed 'living encyclopaedia' of comic book history and an action movie junkie in the first degree.
Clark Anderson, Technical Editor
Digitally Downloaded's resident retro junkie and Sonic enthusiast. Though not the fastest thing alive, he'll certainly run from you in any multiplayer game. When not collecting rings, you can find him caught up in JRPGs and shoot-'em-ups.
Nick Herber, Senior Journalist
Nick has been playing video games a long time -- quick show of hands, who remembers the TI-99/4A? (…crickets’ chirping) That’s where Nick got his start though and he’s been gaming ever since. Nick must be here, 'cause definitely not all there.
Sam McGraw, Contributor
The second most famous Australian on the site, Sam is your average night gamer. Forever ignoring the restrictions of time, staying up late to enjoy a wide variety of games. Adventuring large vistas, which largely reflect his massive backlog, Sam enjoys buying games just as much as he enjoy playing and talking about them. If he describes his favourite game to you whilst talking like a zombie, you'll know that he knows what he's talking about.
Maxwell Smart, Contributor
Max lived on the planet Earth until he played the last BIT.TRIP game and was subsequently transported into the Ether. Through the wonders of broadband internet connection, he still manages to write reviews for Digitally Downloaded. We know he likes to get his game on with Android, Nintendo and PC devices, but he claims he’d also like Sony too – if he could afford it, that is.
V8 Ninja, Contributor
Little is known about the one who calls himself the “V8 Ninja.” The last time he was seen he was chugging Spicy Hot V8 Juice and driving well over the legal speed limit in a Transformer Edition Camaro. We’re guessing he’s got mad ninja skills too, so we happily (fearfully) publish his reviews.
