For context in the above chart, the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One were released a week apart, in November 2013, while the Nintendo Switch was released in March 2017. Xbox had a four-year head start over Nintendo and still ended the generation languishing in third place; the undisputed loser of this generation of the […]
Read More PlayStation’s hardware sales are going to annihilate XBox’s this Christmas, and Xbox have made peace with that.
The launch of the Xbox One was a certified disaster. There was no way back then that I would recommend the One to anyone who was looking to make the leap to the next generation. That was, however, five years ago. And things done changed since then.

I had an early night last night. I woke up on time and cracked on with my morning. I took a shit, had a shower, got dressed, and then I made my lunch for the day: Corned beef, goat’s cheese and coleslaw on seeded batch if you’re interested – I recommend Coleman’s Mustard Sauce for […]

A REAAAL long time coming, but I finally published a short story up here.
Its a quick ting; three hours of my life I ain’t getting back, but have a look; it might be alright, still…

Plus the Nintendo Switch itself is brand spanking new, both in […]

For some reason Wednesday has become my primary writing day, and I’m really not happy about that. I’m unhappy because it is also by far the busiest day of my week. I have next to nothing planned for tomorrow, and I did nothing of any particular value yesterday either. A more organised, more disciplined version […]

First thing fucking first: This post is not the result of a new year’s resolution. Fuck new year’s resolutions! Stop setting yourself up for such public displays of failure and disappointment, people. You’re better than that! The Turkey’s finished, the parties are over and – assuming you even managed to get any time off in […]
