Thank you Radio 4

You can thank the Today programme for why I’m back here blogging. An interview on the BBC Radio 4 claimed that blogging was dead, that Twitter was the new blog. Is my blog dead? Well, I don't know how many people read it, but this is my space to talk about my view of console games past and present. Let's get on with the show. And if you're on Twitter, come follow me - t1mstreet
What have I been up to since the last time I posted? Well, I've hardly played my 360 due to family/work/DVD/book commitments. In fact I haven't been on since I gave the latest Madden's a go (loved it, thank you Mr EA). My missus is out on Friday night so I'll finally be back on. World At War is coming soon, so I'll try to finish Modern Warfare. I won't be distracted until that's done. Then I'll be scouring eBay for a cheap Gears of War. Yes, I know it's two years old now but after getting an email from Microsoft about the sequel, I shall be checking this classic out.
So, what else have I been up to? Elite Beat Agents on DS was bought for a tenner, but is still in its wrapper; my son is teething badly and keeping me awake at night; the Book Thief is excellent; The Assassination Of Jesse James is highly recommended, and the first western I’ve ever seen, outside Bonanza; I need to get into Fringe; and I'm wondering if I'll ever buy another games magazine again after the £6 I paid for the official Xbox mag the other week, more for the Indy demo than anything.
