About GameCloud

Founded in 2012, GameCloud is an independent games media outlet based out of Perth, Western Australia. The website was first conceived as an experiment, but after an ourpouring of local support, it became apparent we had the potential to build something more influential than just another gaming blog. Today, GameCloud is best described as a boutique media venture driven by traditional values, strong ethics and a passion for all things gaming. We’re run by a team of dedicated volunteers and aim to be progressive in our perception of the industry and the voice it requires by producing reviews, features, and original content that’s free from profiteering and inclusive of all player demographics.
 

About Our Reviews

GameCloud uses a pros and cons system that’s straightforward and aimed to best reflect our recommendations. At the conclusion of a review, we basically want to summarise our biggest takeaways and then tell you if we recommend a game, if a game might not be for everyone, or whether we do not recommend a game. No numbers, no nonsense. It’s as simple as it sounds.

Patrick Waring

Patrick Waring

Executive Editor at GameCloud
From Perth, Patrick has played video games from a young age and now has "opinions." When not fretting over whether using words like "fretting" is effeminate, he likes to write jokes about video games. Sometimes he goes outside, but most of the time he just sits at his PC thinking way too hard about Nintendo games.
Nick Ballantyne

Nick Ballantyne

Managing Editor at GameCloud
Nick lives in that part of Perth where there's nothing to do. You know, that barren hilly area with no identifying features and no internet? Yeah, that part. To compensate, he plays games, writes chiptunes, makes videos, and pokes fun at hentai because he can't take anything seriously.
Lliam Ahearn

Staff Writer at GameCloud
Lliam has been playing video games since he was a kid and continues to like them a whole bunch. In the perpetual hunt for platinum trophies, he takes no rest, takes no prisoners, and also takes no performance enhancing drugs. He constantly finds himself thinking about and analysing the games he plays, and sometimes he even turns those thoughts into words.
Bernadette Russell
Bernadette is living her childhood dream as a freelance writer in Geraldton, WA. With a life-long console habit and a self-imposed MMO ban, she fantasizes about the day when all she'll have to do is game and write. Oh, and also about meeting Link. HYAH!

When not patting cats, eating excessive amounts of fruit, and failing the Battlefield 4 tutorial, Ellis spends most of her time cycling around the inner west of Sydney and blatantly disregarding Professor Oak’s words of advice.
Blade Shaw

Alex Chalmers

Alex Chalmers

Staff Writer at GameCloud
Hailing from the wastelands of rural New Zealand, formerly a resident of Perth, Alex is a writer and YouTuber in between training as a tradesman and being a Dad. The rest of the time he'll prattle on to any one who'll listen about the ethics of games as a business, as well as its importance as an expressive outlet.
Kit Fox

Kit Fox

Staff Writer at GameCloud
Cheerfully living in fictional worlds more than he actually lives in Perth, Kit is an artist, game designer and all-round weirdo with very colourful hair. Growing up with Nintendo and PCs, he also loves LEGO, rainy days, reading books, energy drinks and recognizes Terry Crews as his spirit animal.
Ben West

Ben West

Staff Writer at GameCloud
Ben loves to overthink every thing he can, which is useful to most of his hobbies, including video games, particularly the puzzle genre, board games, and philosophical discussions with whoever will engage in them. It is much less useful in practically every other facet of his life.
Connor Weightman
Connor is a writer and researcher, formerly of Perth and currently based in Canberra. He likes coffee, adventure games, poetry, twitchy platformers, bread and all bread-based and breadlike foods, history, science and technology, mediocre sitcoms, professional Starcraft tournaments, and movies where the actors play themselves. He once beat FTL on easy.
