Jamie Hore – Deputy Editor

Jamie has worked his way up from being The Loadout’s first staff writer in 2019 to become the site’s deputy editor. He also wields a degree in broadcast journalism, and has prior experience as a freelance writer. He possesses deep knowledge on top console series like EA FC (previously FIFA) and Call of Duty, which he’s accumulated from over 20 years of gaming on Xbox and PlayStation.

While Jamie enjoys a wide range of games, shooters are his main speciality – he has clocked thousands of hours on some of the best FPS games to ever grace consoles, such as Battlefield, Apex Legends, and Destiny 2. Right now, he’s mostly banking cash in The Finals on PS5, although the mouth-watering library of titles on Game Pass frequently lures him away to his small but mighty Xbox Series S.

Aaron Down – Staff Writer

Aaron began life in videogames journalism with The Loadout in 2020. However, they honed their skills during their Digital Marketing MA, which have been utilized to great effect covering the best games on PS5 and Xbox. Playing and covering the best RPG games, is Aaron’s bread and butter, and their favorites from across the years include Kingdom Hearts 2 and Persona 5.

Aaron’s passion for console gaming spans over two decades, and in that time they’ve owned consoles on both the green and blue side of the divide. Their love for gaming stemmed from playing games like FIFA 98 and Resident Evil 2 on the PS1, while today they revel in the likes of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Stellar Blade, and Call of Duty MW3. You may also find them reliving their Sunday League glory days in FC 24. (He/They)

Sam Comrie – Staff Writer

Sam joined The Loadout in 2022, but you can also find his byline on articles for NME, Inverse, Turtle Beach, and Dexerto. It’s safe to say he’s put his degrees in creative media and journalism to good use. Since becoming a games journalist, Sam has attended industry events such as Gamescom, attended hands-on previews for major triple-A games, and has covered some of the biggest Xbox and PlayStation news stories of the last few years.

Sam’s love for console gaming spans more than two decades, back to the times of Jackie Chan Stuntmaster and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater on the PS1. These days, you’ll mostly find him dropping in on Fortnite or getting jump-scared in Alan Wake 2 PS5 and Xbox Series X. When he isn’t daydreaming about the Skate 4 release date, Sam will be defending Gotham Knights from any hate and looking for an opportunity to talk about Max Payne.
