Luca Christophersen is a 14-year-old aspiring writer who recently came to the HuffPost UK offices for work experience.
To ease him in to the world of tech writing - and because he's 14 - we gave him some games to review.
First up: Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, which we covered recently.Here's what Luca thought:
Being the first “hardcore game” on Kinect this has a lot of pressure. And with a combined gamepad-Kinect control scheme, the idea showed potential. It seems to do an okay job at justifying the hype: It has good graphics; developed AI and a fair balance between Kinect and controller usage. But this game isn’t all good. Without the rough Kinect implementation this game would have been an above average game. But as a consequence of the (realistically) crowded screen and fast pace gaming, you can never really control your player the way you want - every flick of the wrist closes the shutter; clicks a random button and puts you into hyper speed.
The idea of a hardcore Kinect game shows promise. But they haven’t quite polished the game - and it shows.

The headphones/audio company Beats has purchased the MOG music service, USA Today says.
"Beats was created as a response to the complete erosion of the music experience," says Beats' president and chief operating officer Luke Wood. "Our whole reason for starting Beats was to try to bring emotion back into that experience. We believe music services is a vital part of that ecosystem."
