Andrew Ogley (Nexus Grunt)

Andrew has been writing for TA since 2011 covering news, reviews and the occasional editorials and features. One of the grumpy old men of the team, his mid-life crisis has currently manifested itself in the form of an addiction to sim-racing - not being able to afford the real life car of his dreams. When not spending hours burning simulated rubber, he still likes to run around, shoot stuff and blow things up - in the virtual world only of course.

Five short stories expand the title with a mini single player/co-op campaign. Exploring alternate histories from WWII and the Cold War, the new War Stories expansion is short and sweet, and brutally tough at times.

NASCAR Heat 2 Review

NASCAR Heat 2 captures the essence of the sport but that's to its detriment too. Racing amongst the pack is great fun, but you have to be a fan to see past the presentation and enjoy continually racing around circles.

Project CARS 2 Review

Project CARS 2 is a massive step forward for the franchise and perhaps for the genre too, with a brilliantly immersive single-player mode. However, online is a very patchy hit and miss affair.
