About
A qualified Environmental Chemist who happens to live in a fairly dense city with no real environment or chemistry industry.

I review indie games on another blog and you'll see them pop up here if I think the review is a good or interesting one (along with a shameless bit of self promotion)

I also operate another blog reviewing films and I mean t pick that back up when I can.

I've been gaming since the SNES days. I've been in the pro scene before for tribes 2 but hate the present pro scenes and have no interest in going back into it.

I tend to get into quite a few Betas and love ones without NDA as it means I can write about them. I have even beta tested an xbox 360 game in my time (and no not a normal public Beta one )

In gaming I'm normally the guy looking at the shelf below the AAA titles first to see if there are any great hidden gems.

My gaming drug of choice: Timesplitters in any flavour (Why won't you make Timesplitters 4 Crytek, why ????? I need my fix of insanity )

So yeh Iím jumping on the bandwagon with this one as itís a cool concept rather than looking back but making some wild guess at what the new yea holds.
So here are my predictions of gaming doom.

1)



Anita Sarkeesian will somehow be in even more media, still put no videos out and then face a second round of backlash one which will bury her but result in her spinning it to try and condemn gaming further and somehow join up with anti video game protestors. Seriously damaging the image of gaming in the media, that is until itís found she has a coke problem.


2)



Microsoft will go Kinect mad and announce their console the Delphinus which will have built in high tech Kinect DRM. The Machine will initially be a flop until 3 months in when a hacker finds the security code to open the whole system is 1234 at which point the console sells like hot cakes and leads to a 90% piracy rate.
Other companies will also go DRM mad and Ubisoft will introduce a system which requires all player to undergo surgical ID chip implantation into the hand to be able to play any of their games and to allow them to verify you are the one who bought it so are entitled to use the licence



3)




George Lucas will announce he is to join the team making Mass effect 4 as the games story consultant.

Oh the internet if this does happen...................... The cries of a million fanboys will echo out

4)




The new consoles are announced at a price tag of $900 each for the basic model. IGN will report that this price was to be expected and despite this they believe the consoles will easily outsell the Wii U.



5)




Sega of Japan will launch a class action lawsuit for copyright infringement upon every company in the world causing a hault to all games releases for 2 months while the mess gets sorted out and a highly trained team of special forces doctors attempts to breach Sega Japan offices to get the executives back onto their meds
