Uncle Clive was a comedy gaming blog specialising in what the British do best – scathing satire. It was sort of a less vulgar version of the comic strip Viz; but aimed at gamers. On a bi-weekly basis, Uncle Clive dispensed his ZX Spectrum-derived wisdom upon those assembled. Highlights included Onions4Eyes (a man with onions where his eyes once resided), Gamer's Girlfriend Reviews (a single bemused line, usually about the incomprehensibility of the controls) and Games Whose Sequels Really Should Have Been A Lot Better Than The Original By Now (self explanatory, really).
Uncle Clive spread the good word for five side-splitting years, before ending his tenure in 2006. To this day, we've yet to stumble across a funnier game site.
