Whenever there’s a new Assassin’s Creed title on the horizon, fans get to speculating where it could, or should, be set. For many years, Ubisoft have more or less surprised us, transitioning from Victorian London, to Ancient Egypt, then from Ancient Greece, to the Age of the Vikings. We’ve explored Paris, Boston, New Orleans, and vast swathes of Italy throughout our time with the franchise, but there’s one spot on the grand timeline I’d love to see realised in an Assassin’s Creed title.

Since Assassin’s Creed Unity debuted in 2014, I’ve maintained that an Assassin’s Creed title set in World…

I’m going to come right out and say it.

I wouldn’t be who I am today without videogames.

From my earliest memories, to my biggest achievements, videogames have been there, by my side, every step of the way. I’ve shaped the very core of my existence around videogames in some way or another, and I can see them being an integral part of my life for many, many years to come.

However, I feel as though I need to explain myself a little, as there are people who have, just this minute, judged me. No, I’m not a shut-in; I’m…

I’ve been an active freelancer on Upwork since the tail end of 2017, and it has been a lucrative and beneficial journey all round. In these last few years, I’ve effectively built a side venture that could, at any point, become a full-time career, if I wished for it to be so. Furthermore, I’ve worked with dozens of clients from all around the globe, and I’ve built an invaluable network along the way.

However, my path to Upwork greatness wasn’t a swift one, and it took a while to really gain traction on the platform. I’m intensely aware of the…

I’ve had a fantastic start to the year.

Don’t worry, this isn’t an article that exists solely for the purposes of bragging, but what’s the point in achieving things if you’re not going to be proud of them? No, this article is designed to help my fellow writers, such as yourself, create content more consistently, and generally be more productive.

Since 2021 kicked in, I’ve written two eBooks, sixty articles on Medium, and written almost one hundred articles for clients. …

I’ve just self-published my first motivational eBook as part of a mission to totally redefine myself. Since the start of 2021, I’ve been set on a path to really make something of my life, and a huge part of that involves inspiring others to make more of their lives. I’ve always been an avid fan of motivational speakers and inspirational personalities, and I’m now taking steps toward becoming one myself, regardless of how many steps that journey may involve.

To that end, I’ve penned a short book titled Grow Towards Greatness, aiming to teach people the seven practices or principles…

Let’s face it, Vozrozhdeniya Island made for some exciting, fast-paced gameplay, but it wasn’t really a new Warzone map, was it? It offered some high-octane action, but fans are still eagerly awaiting the new full-sized offering from the likes of Raven Software and Activision. However, while it might seem like Call of Duty: Warzone has been out for an incredibly long time, it isn’t even one year old… At least, not yet.

When March 2021 rolls around, so too will the first-year anniversary of Call of Duty: Warzone, and I’ll happily eat my shoe if we don’t get to see…


A story of how one man’s song devasted the lives of many others

The track opens with sombre and heartbreaking notes painstakingly played on a violin, with the sound of bells chiming faintly in the background. As the introduction fades out, the sorrowful, harrowing vocals bleed in, telling the tragic story of two lovers torn apart by an untimely death, and the dark desire for the one left alive to rejoin the one who has passed…

A Heartbreaking Composition

Rezso Seress originally composed the slow and meaningful piece while he was living in Paris, in 1932. He’d left his home country of Hungary to pursue his dream of becoming a songwriter and escape a growing fascist…

I often find myself deep in thought about the human species. It happens when I’m walking down the street, driving along the highway, or simply gazing out of a window somewhere. I’ll see a person — or a group of people — and I’ll get to thinking, what’s their story? Where are they going? What have they accomplished? What are their dreams?

It’s a little bizarre, I know; this almost inexplicable curiosity I nurture for my fellow human. However, I can’t help but find a sense of remarkability emanating from every individual person I see. There’s an ‘out there’ theory…

If there’s one thing that Zombieland (2009) taught me, it’s that there’s nothing wrong with having a list of rules to live by. In this humorous, post-apocalyptic flick, Jesse Eisenberg’s character, Columbus, carries with him an ever-expanding list of rules that he swears by as he explores the devastated, derelict landscape of the United States of America.

We come to learn thirty-three of these rules by the time the film wraps, but more have been revealed since then. As you might expect, they’re focused mostly around surviving in a world that is now desperate to claim your life. There are…

Before I get started, I’d like to draw attention to the cover image I’ve used. I’m assuming she’s using some kind of privacy filter on her screen, right? Otherwise, she isn’t going to get far working on a laptop that isn’t even switched on. Stock images, whatareyagonnado?

You read that right; I write up to 12,000 words every day

That’s 8.3 words per minute, every minute — 1440 of them, in fact. It’s around 24 pages of A4 paper typed on in a 12-pt font. It’s my daily grind, and it’s one that I’m extremely proud of. Once upon a time, I was so lazy I’d probably write all of about 12
