Sarah James ~ freelance videogame writer

I am a full-time freelance writer who specialises in coverage of World of Warcraft. I have words at PC Gamer, GamesRadar, Red Bull UK, TechRadar, and PCGamesN, to name just a few.

My first experience with gaming was playing Jet Set Willy on my best friend’s ZX Spectrum at the impressionable age of 12. The Sega Mega Drive was my first console and quickly turned me into a huge Sonic fan but it wasn’t until I got my hands on the original PlayStation that I became a Serious Gamer™.

While I play most games these days, I have a huge place in my heart (and on my hard drive!) for World of Warcraft and spent five years as the GM of a heroic raiding guild - who needs sleep anyway, right!? If you're familiar with my work, you'll notice that I thoroughly enjoy writing about Blizzard's MMORPG too, whether that's in the form of a guide or an in-depth feature on certain aspects of the game or its community.

Aside from WoW, I adore JRPGs, have an obsession with Bloodborne that borders on the unhealthy, and aspire to one day be able to play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing emotional wreck.

the words

I'm currently covering news twice a week over at GAMINGbible as well as hardware guides at PC Gamer.

Below are some of my favourite articles (and videos!), divided into handy sections. Click on a heading to view.

guides ~ The how, where, when, and why of games writing.
features ~ A closer look into the world(s) of gaming.
news ~ Hot off the press.
reviews ~ My thoughts on various titles.
videos ~ Capturing those good gaming moments. And embarrassments.
