Asen's first contact with gaming was GTA Vice City back when he was a long way from PEGI 18. Years later, after completing countless story modes, pulling more all-nighters than he can count, and spending more time on FIFA than he'd like to confess, gaming is still a big passion of his. Not only that, but he's also fascinated by hardware and gaming peripherals. So much so, that he's become something of a walking encyclopedia about all things audio.
