About me


My names Thomas Welsh and I’m a games and fiction writer. As well as working on my first novel, I’ve been published in popular mainstream game sites like Kotaku and I own and edit CalmDownTom.

My greatest hits:
Three things you hate about Destiny (are psychological tricks that keep you playing)
I Found Dark Souls’ Sen’s Fortress in Real Life (Well, Kind Of)
Top 10 (Proven) Health Benefits of Video Games

CalmDownTom is the home of the collected writings of Thomas Welsh and a select bunch of his best friends. These rebels, geniuses and outlaws helped build an amazing community, but as I take time to focus on my freelance and fiction writing, this site serves as a reminder of the great articles we published.

Moving into the future, expect to see more details of my upcoming novel and short stories, as well as the occasional games article. After all, no one ever stops being a games journalist, do they?

Any questions?

    Appreciating the time and energy you put into your website and in depth information you offer.
    It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while
    that isn’t the same out of date rehashed material.
    Great read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.
