Gaetano loves Doritos and always orders Mountain Dew with his KFC. He's not sorry. He also likes Call Of Duty, but would much rather play Civ. He hates losing at FIFA, and his pet hate is people who recline their seat on short-haul flights.

    Horizon Zero Dawn……then the Switch. Ooooh yeah.

    Also looking forward to a bit of Lego Worlds on the Switch. Seems to me that a Minecraft like Lego game is a perfect fit, if done right.
