    So they reckon this is the first step! Admitting you have a problem. Well, I think I'm ready. I got up this morning at 7:30am, Yil has discovered the most efficient means of waking me up, and it comes in the form of a 39kg rottweiler and death by licks...

    This weekend I picked up The Godfather on XBOX 360 , and what can I say, it was an offer too good to refuse! The great thing about The Godfather game is that they have managed to slip stream all the major plot points into the game, but still keep it exciting...

    Let's go back a few weeks to when I played GOW with the guys from work. I come from a PC gaming background, and have always struggled with the XBOX experience. But when I played GOW , oh, the wonder! It was fantastic, and was good enough to want me to...

    So last year (oh, happy NY btw) I cashed in some 90,000 AMEX points, and ordered myself two gift vouchers from Harvey Norman in order to buy an XBOX 360. This was mainly after my experience playing GOW with Chris , Nick and Graham in the office, but also...
