About

My name is Lauren “atheistium” Alison Wainwright and I like to write, play and live video games. That sounds kind of weird, I know, but I have a lot of passion for the industry and I want to be a part of it!

I was born in 1986, and have been playing since I was very young. I latched onto the commodore amiga and built on from there to newer consoles.

I grew up in GosportHampshire (United Kingdom) living a rather ordinary life until 2005 where I got a scholarship to live in Chiba, Japan and attend high school while learning the language. Living in Japan really put a few things in perspective such as what I wanted to do with my future and also a fascinating look into the Japanese games industry.

After returning I had a new out look on life and have since then been pursuing a career in video games journalism. I have so much to learn still but so far I am really enjoying what is being thrown my way.

I currently work voluntarily for Consolemonster.com as well as work freelance. I am also studying Games Studies and Journalism at London Met Uni.

Oh and I was gamer of the month for Xbox.co.uk.

    Wow! Gamer of the month! You must be very good at games. I’m impressed.
    I’m rather mediocre as a player, but I love games too. My personal record is 82 % completion in Dante’s Inferno, but it was very easy, so it doesn’t count.. If there were trophies for the Playstation, I would have gotten the platinum trophy for Metal Gear Solid and Silent Hill; I have played them and completed them so many times that I surely deserve some kind of medal for that! Also back in the 80’s I had put countless hours of playing in Defender of the Crown, Saboteur, Bomb Jack, Green Beret etc.

    I wish you good luck in your goals.
