From the moment I first envisioned this website it was my goal to bring you articles that are honest, accurate and fair. As such I have written down my personal code of ethics, a set of rules that I plan to obey at all times in order to provide the best coverage I can:

1) All promotional deals will be fully disclosed and will have no limitation on my ability to speak my opinion freely and honestly.

2) A review will never be a piece of promotional content nor will I ever accept money, favors or anything else in return for a review.

3) I will never review a game that has bought add coverage though I will cower news related to it without giving the it priority or any other preferential treatment.

4) I will never accept gifts or favors that might influence my opinion. For example: I will decline a tablet as a gift but I don't mind accepting character minis or other such small novelties one might be gifted at a convention.

5) I will strive to be as accurate and truthful as possible in my news reporting. If I ever make an error I welcome anyone to bring it to my attention and I will swiftly correct it.

6) If I ever mention another story or use a citation in my articles I will provide a link to the source material.

7) I will never create rumors, distort stories or lie in order to bait in more readers. If I cower a rumor it will always be noted as such until it is either confirmed or denied.

8) If I have a personal bias against or for a particular topic I will make that bias known early on but I will still strive to cover the topic in an accurate and fair way.

9) I will never join a political party or use my influence in a way where I directly or indirectly promote a political party.

10) I will strive to keep adds on the website as mild and unobtrusive as possible. If you find an add that is particularly annoying (flashing graphics, sound, pop ups) bring it to my attention and I will either correct it or get rid of it.

-The email address you register with (or contact me with) will only be used for account functions on this website or to contact you. It will not be sold, distributed or otherwise disclosed to anyone else.

-The password you use to access your account is encrypted, not even I can access it. For maximum security I suggest you use a different password for each website.

-Your browsing data (what pages you clicked, how long you stayed, things like that) will be tracked on this website in order to help me improve its functionality. This information will only be used on Gamesear and no one else will have access to it.

-Cookies are used in order for the login and comment systems to function. You can disable them in your browser options if you so desire though keep in mind the login system will then stop working along with some features on other websites.

-If there are adds present on the page they will have their own cookies. Those will look at your browsing habits in order to deliver ads they believe are suited to you. If you want there are ways to block them (various ad-blockers or tracker blockers) though ads are what support Gamesear so I would appreciate it if you could white-list me. I will try to keep the ads as pleasant as possible and remove any that are annoying. If you find any bad ones that I have missed report them to me at:

Thank you for helping me make this website a better place! Before I send you off to the contact address please check if the issue is not simply on your end. Try disabling your add-ons (especially ad block or other such blockers) and then try again. If its still appearing send me a message while providing the instruction below and I'll try to get it fixed as fast as possible:

1) What browser and operating system are you using?

2) What page does the error occur on?

3) If its a functionality bug (login page doesn't work, etc.) please check if the same issue is happening on a different browser.

4) Can you reproduce the bug? If not, or if it shows up infrequently, write down what you were doing at the time when it appeared.

Once you've done that send me the information at the address below. It would also be helpful if you could keep an eye on your email for the next few days, I might require further information if its a particularly tricky issue. And thanks again for helping me improve the website, I really do appreciate it.

From the moment I made Gamesear it was my wish to cover the whole range of PC games, from the AAA giants to the smallest of indies. However, I am but one man, and despite how amazing I might be there is still a limit to the amount of games I can go over in any given week. But don't let this discourage you, talking about games is what I do and I will gladly sacrifice my free time in order to try out something new and interesting.

So if you have something exciting you would like me to showcase to the world please go over these simple guidelines and then send me a message via the contact address at the bottom of the article:

1) This is a PC gaming website. While I will on occasion cower a particularly interesting bit of news from the console world I don't consider it the main focus of the website. So if you've got a console game you want me to talk about I am afraid we're both out of luck, but once you port it over to the PC (you are of course porting it to PC, right?) I would love to give it a try.

2) A video is worth a thousand words. If I am to do an article about your game I need to have something substantial to talk about. Ideally you should send both a video (in order to help me get an overview of what your game is exactly) and a playable demo/review key.

3) As I mentioned above my time is limited so don't take it personally if I don't end up covering your game. There are thousands coming out every single week and I can only chose a few that I personally find the most interesting. The same goes if I end up having a negative opinion on certain aspects of the game. I know its hard to separate yourself from your work (this whole project of mine was an exercise in that) but if I point out something negative don't take it as an insult, take it as an opportunity to fix the issue and make your game even better. If this happens I will gladly give your game a second look and showcase its improvements.

4) If you would like to add me to your mailing list/review copy list please use the address at the bottom.

5) And finally please don't message me about Kickstarters or other such funding projects. Far too often these games end up in flames and I don't want to get any of my readers excited about something that simply might never be. If I end up cowering Kickstarters it will mostly be from well-proven developers who have a track record of delivering their games on time.

And that is it, five simple guidelines that should help make our communication nice and smooth. The contact address is right below, I look forward to hearing from you! And as far as responses are concerned, I will try to answer every single email though it might take some time depending on my workload. If you feel I might have missed your message feel free to send another one, though refrain from spamming as that's not a very good way to win me over.

Greetings and welcome to Gamesear,

This whole website was born out of my desire to combine everything I enjoy in to one single package, while also not doing any 'actual work' in the process. I've finished university with a master's degree in computer science, so the idea of building a website and its systems from scratch was quite exciting, especially since I knew very little about it all - a fact that didn't stop me from bumbling my way towards some sort of a success. Add to that my love for writing and gaming and I don't see how this could've turned out any other way... disregarding the couple of obvious examples one can think up instantly, but let's not ruin the moment, shall we?

So what exactly is Gamesear? It is a hub for PC gaming news, reviews, opinions, critique, and various other nonsense that comes out of my virtual mouth, all done in what I would like to think is a fair and honest manner. Seeing how many sites out there make a living simply through baiting in viewers with either plain lies or misleading titles, I vowed I would try my hardest to bring you coverage that is accurate, true and hopefully attractive to you because of its quality, rather than its title alone.

With this in mind I've written down my own Personal Code of Ethics, a set of rules that make me look more professional than I really am, while also hopefully ensuring I never turn towards the dark side... despite my love for cookies.

Some of you might ask why only PC games? And the answer is simple, I've spent my entire life alongside them, whereas I've only ever owned one console. I also really enjoy the PC ecosystem where the tiniest of indie games can compete with the biggest of AAA games. There is always something new and unexpected waiting for you, if you are willing to look deep enough. Unfortunately, sometimes the truly interesting games are buried to deep for anyone to notice, which is why I aim to regularly cover unique and intriguing indie games to hopefully correct that issue.

If you are a developer looking to get some coverage for your game, please contact me here. The same goes for advertising inquiries, and bug reports. I will try to answer every single email, but depending on my workload it might take a little while, so please be patient.

For those of you interested in some legal mumbo-jumbo, however, here's the privacy policy.

As a final note, make sure to visit me on Youtube and Twitter for even more barely-coherent rambling PC gaming content and videos. And if you have any questions that might not fit the above mentioned categories, feel free to ask them here:
