Hey there! You’re here because you want to learn more about the Cubed Gamers team! Well, that or you mistakenly clicked on the link. That’s possible.
Cubed Gamers is a small but steadily-growing gaming website offering independent and reasonably impartial news, reviews, videos and analysis. While we have the most first-hand experience of the UK gaming scene, we like to think we can cover news all over the world.
Founded in August 2011 as a response to the E3 announcements that year and the founders’ love of video games, Cubed Gamers expanded from a couple of Let’s Plays and articles into a veritable media empire – okay, perhaps we wouldn’t go that far. What we do have is a dedicated, hardworking team who do their damnedest to get you that sweet gaming information you so desperately crave – mostly on time, too!
Sian: Feature Editor
Sian’s fan-loyalty lies with the ugly grey brick and it’s derivatives, the ugly black VCR and the barbeque, otherwise known as the PlayStation series. She writes topical features on video games, as well as participating in Let’s Plays and podcasts with us.
She has trouble counting the number of wheels on a tricycle, as well as the countries in Africa, but hopes to one day become leader of one of them by some sort of military coup.
She should be able to offer us gaming content from the perspective of a Sony fan, bringing much needed well roundedness to our otherwise CUBE-SHAPED website. See what I did there?
Prefers to get stuck into some plot than shoot terrorists, but has a penchant for destroying London using only a LEGO Tom Riddle and a bus.
- Age: As old as time itself.
- Hair: Long, brown, in multiple strands.
- Favourite Games: Final Fantasy IX, Ico, LA Noire.
- Favourite Console: Playstation 3.
- Proof of Fangirlism: Once received a free Xbox but gave it back.
Robin: Games Editor
A writer, gamer and all-around good guy, Robin is the lanky one with the long hair and the suit, from whom came forth the idea for this most glorious of websites. He’s also providing the funds for hosting, so the others had better behave.He hopes to one day gather an army of rabid fangirls so large that not only will he be able to walk across the ocean on their backs, he will also be able to use them to enslave all free nations.
He’ll be the one responsible for most of the reviews, as well as producer of the majority of live-action videos. He also does the graphics and web design for everything Cubed Gamers, so you know who to throw things at.

Phil: Site Administrator
Phil is the more casually dressed, less folliculated guy hanging around here from time to time. He’s so smart, he once beat Stephen Hawking, Brian Cox and HAL in a pub quiz, while blinded, unconscious and buried under a lake.
He’ll be covering the more tech-heavy parts of this site, specifically being responsible for many of our Let’s Plays as well as site maintenance and running the forums. Less of a story-oriented gamer, he’d rather have a relaxing game of Minecraft than an action-heavy shooter… until Robin shows up with the TNT, of course.
- Age: 18
- Pets: has two brothers and a fish.
- Favourite Games: Minecraft, Mario Sunshine
- Favourite Console: Does PC count? No. So Gamecube!
- Greatest Desire: A night alone with a hex-core processor and an 8-drive RAID array.
Jennifer: News Editor
Jennifer is our News Editor and, as such, any complaints that we haven’t covered something well enough can be directed at her. She was raised on the Sega Genesis but has since acquired quite the collection, including such machines as the Atari 2600 and (previously) a Hello Kitty branded Dreamcast. That’s the sort of combination of video games and cats that makes the internet explode.
She’ll be reporting factually on issues of the day, as well as joining us on our podcasts to try and keep us on course when none of us have bothered to read up on the topics.
- Age: A number of years.
- Evidence of Nerd Cred: Collects figurines.
- Favourite Games: Final Fantasy Tactics, Sonic The Hedgehog 2,
- Favourite Console: Doesn’t matter, she owns all of them.
- Fun Fact: Is American, yet likes tea. Scientists are conducting tests.
