Jamie writes about indie games and chats to developers about their upcoming titles. He'd love to buy all the retro consoles he had growing up; Amiga, SNES, N64, PS1, Dreamcast; but his wife would kill him, plus she needs the money to fill the house with more plants - you can never have enough plants, apparently.
