Editor-in-Chief

James has been covering the games industry for 16+ years. He built up the original GameDaily trade site and newsletter and continued to manage it under AOL ownership.

James has cultivated numerous relationships with industry professionals, and earned a reputation in the business for insightful, ‘tough-but-fair’ interviews. He’s met with the biggest names in gaming, including (now late) Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata, Peter Moore, John Riccitiello, Phil Spencer, Todd Howard, Sid Meier and other legends.
