About Me

Who Is WhiteCaneGamer

I am a stay at home dad with a passion for gaming, programming and to be honest, little skill in either category. That doesn’t stop me from loving both however and wanting to improve.

I have two lovely children, one boy and one girl. The person that granted me these two lovely bundles of joy is my wife, I refer to her as Anime online, a nickname she acquired by playing Stronghold Kingdoms with me, a game she still enjoys playing to this day.

Why WhiteCaneGamer

I chose the online handle WhiteCaneGamer as a pun hinting at my sight loss. My sight loss is due to a hereditary condition called Retinitis Pigmentosa, causing me to lose clarity of vision across my entire field of view. This condition is degenerative and for the moment incurable.

What Games Do You Play

The 3 games that have taken up the vast majority of my gaming time since I starting playing games are Stronghold Crusader, Stronghold Kingdoms and Minecraft. However, now that my eye sight is deteriorating, I am now forced to open my horizons and start looking for more accessible games.

When I Accessible, What I Mean Is. . .

I’ve got a really bad habit. When I refer to accessibility, either in the positive or negative, not clarifying what I mean. There are several avenues of accessibility, either physical, cognitive, visually or for the hearing impaired and many more.

If I am myself visually impaired, I tend to blanket refer to accessibility just from the Visually Impaired point of view. This is a really bad habit, one I am trying to wean myself off. However, if you catch me doing it, you now know what I mean.


Affiliate Links

When I mention a product in one of my blog posts, I may link to that product using an Amazon.co.uk affiliate link. This means I get a small commission if you were to purchase that item on Amazon.co.uk. If you do choose to purchase the item, you do not pay any extra, Amazon.co.uk however will pass on a slight commission to me for the referral. I may also receive commission for anything else you purchase during that shopping trip to Amazon.co.uk.


Anything Else I Should Know?
