For a rundown of the industry’s most “famous” people, Gary Cutlack probably tops the poll of names least likely to be recognised. A staff writer for Future Publishing, his CV couldn't be described as auspicious. The list of magazines he’s written for don’t make for interesting reading, unless you count the new Official Xbox360 rag that we’ve already had a go at.
But under the guise of Cmdr Zorg, Cutlack is the mastermind behind the country’s funniest games blog, UK:Resistance. Updated almost daily, we wonder how he manages to squeeze in writing for the mags he works on, but putting together an independent comedy site on Future’s time makes it even more satisfying.
Always ready to pierce through the hateful PR bollocks that has poisoned our once proud industry, Cutlack isn’t afraid to speak his mind. UK:Resistance is NGJ’s biggest opponent, recognising exactly why that despicable manifesto and set of dire articles should be erased from existence. He also hates poor old Gillen’s guts, albeit in an “oh shit, there he is, what’s he doing here, I’d better nip out the back way, oh fuck he’s seen me, I’d better go over and shake his hand and start smiling and laughing a little bit too much” kind of way.
Cutlack loves gaming for the right reasons, and will always be there to fight the good fight against the cunts who want to sap the joy out of it. The popularity of his site is proof that he’s not alone in his beliefs.
Congratulations Gary – you’re a “celebrity” games journalist!
The RAM Raider salutes you.
