Another month, another “news” article that’s a solid two weeks late, but here nonetheless. I am well aware that you’ve probably played, completed and deleted them off your console in preparation for next month; but this is for my “who wins 2018” post next January.
Here they are, in record-breaking brief fashion; Continue reading

…but is Sonic headed for another ice berg?
This past few months has been pretty great to be a Sonic fan right? SEGA seems to have got their priorities in check and giving the fans what they want with the upcoming Sonic Mania – even though it has just been pushed back from Spring to Summer, at least it is coming and it looks great! However, there is another. Continue reading
Last Thursday I looked at the two biggest hardware malfunctions in gaming – but they weren’t alone; far from it! Every major console manufacturer has had issues that somehow sneaked past QA and made it into the public domain.
The issues here are far less serious than those in Part One; in fact it is completely possible that you never knew these issues existed because you probably never experienced them. I can assure you that there were/are a very real thing!
Here we are then, three more console malfunctions of varying severity.
Liverpool Football Club tonight announced that Peter Moore will leave his position at EA to become their new CEO.
Fenway Sports Group released a statement on the clubs official website and said the following;
Liverpool Football Club has named Peter Moore as its new chief executive officer.
The appointment completes a 10-month transition plan by FSG and finalises the senior management structure at the club.
This is surely the dream job for the Liverpool born businessman who is a lifelong Liverpool fan. And with the club previously stating they were looking for a more “business minded CEO to replace Ian Ayre” he appears to be an ideal fit for the club.
Peter Moore had previously been involved in the video games industry including being COO at SEGA, Head of Xbox Division at Microsoft (with his famous Halon2 and GTA IV tattoos) and, of course, his current position of Chief Competition Officer at EA.
This appointment also sees several other moves within the club’s management.
Peter will take up his new position in July 2017.

With all three major VR headsets now available to the general public; we have officially heralded the beginning of a new era; if the PSVR, Oculus and Rift have it their way – gaming has been irrevocably changed. We’ll not be able to go back to traditional, screen-based gaming; regardless of what Phil Spencer thinks…
…PSVR has gotten me thinking though. I used to dream of something like this when I was a kid playing my SEGA Mega Drive, and now here it is and it’s almost as good as I pictured it way back in 1991.
What else has changed since then though?
Almost too much! There is literally too much for me to list here and still make it interesting. What I’m going to do instead is to tell you what I consider the best technological advancements in gaming.
