Cash Strapped.

Are you cash strapped? Then you may feel depressed if you also a gamer reading this.

Do you long for gears of war 3, forza motorsport 4, cod modern warfare 3, saints row the third, fifa 12, f1 2011, halo combat evolved anniversary, mass effect 3, deus ex human revolution, skyrim?

got a job??? No damn, why cant game companies spread these titles out over a 12 month period instead of going for xmas? okay some of these games have come well early, but 5 of those games i listed all come out within a month of each other #skint

I mean titles like Call of Duty, and Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, (which come out on the 8th and 11th November respectively) could get away with it as they are really big names. but i mean forza motorsport 4 is a big game for the xbox 360, but with just a week or so after the two previous games mentioned, (that are going to sell the old metric fcukton of games, guaranteed) consumers are going to be strapped for cash, especially are microsoft are going to be launching a brand new accessory for the 360 in their new wireless wheel, which looks rather special btw.

The problem with some many big name titles in such a little time, is the casual gamer, that dosent game often. They may only buy one or two titles a year, and as such, are going to go for the best titles available, and in the UK, that generally means people are going to go for a soccer game, (Fifa) and are going to go for a major title, like a cod, gears of war, or halo.

Which leaves the serious gamer, like you and me, who probably isnt going to go out till new years eve, to save up as much money as is humanly possible to get all of these games.

which is probably where you go.

"MUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM??????? i been a really good boy this year....."

"Shut Up Son, your a grown man, buy your own shit."

oh and in October you can throw in the big battle of Battlefield 3 to the mix as well.
May the battle for your hard earned xmas cash starts now, or has started already.
Hopefully this should mean we get more excellent games to play throughout the holliday period.

Keep Gaming, Or saving up in some cases.

About me

My name is Mason Cooper, I'm 23, from the United Kingdom, and I am an avid gamer. i also love sports, and quite a few comedy tv shows.

I follow with a passion, the Indianapolis Colts NFL team, and in soccer, I follow the mighty Leeds United, and have since I was a lad.

I love watching sports as it is for the most part, unwritten, you do know what you are going to get. a few days before i make this post. my nfl team the Indianapolis Colts, played a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Now without Star Man Peyton Manning, we had lost both previous games, and hadnt looked like winning. So much infact i had picked against the colts for this game expecting the steelers to walk all over us. The colts defence played with such pride, skill, determination, that they single handedly kept the colts in the game, all game, losing right at the end by 3 points.

I remember my first gaming console being a super nintendo, with the good old cartridges instead of discs. i remember having one of the super marios, i know this was 1993 at the earliest.

In 1994 my grandmother brought me a Sega MegaDrive for my 6th birthday and i havent looked back since. playing games as much as i probably could get in the day.

Through my years with my Nintendo 64, Playstation1, Playstaton 2, Xbox and Xbox 360, and countless weeks worth of hours logged racking up kills, skills, wins, losses and deaths,

I joined Xbox Live in 2009 with my current gamertag MasonCooper42, and have currently racked up over 34000 gamerscore.

I enjoy shooters, but i like to think im better than i really am, but when i am playing well, beware.
I also play a lot of sports game, and am not shabby at some of those too.

Keep Gaming and providing many subjects for me to tackle throughout the gaming industry.

Regards Mason Cooper

First Post

My name is Mason Cooper, and I play rather too much of computer games, seriously i cannot get enough of them. I play on the Xbox 360,  and i have acquired a lot of them over the previous 15 years of gaming. i have seen major changes in the industry, from the use of graphics, to the point where they can make your jaw drop, from financial strategies from Microsoft and ea to get more of your money, to the use of the internet to enhance your gaming experience.

In the near future, while I sort out the layout and potentially the name, among other things relating to this blog, I will be tackling the major issues facing gamers, and tactics used by the companies leading the industry to improve their games. You may also find the odd game review in here as well.

My Gamertag on Xbox Live is MasonCooper42, contact me if you want to organise a match in the future.

So until I sort this blog out visually, (you might not notice a difference) this will be all for now. So for now i must direct you to my twitter account/feed, whatever you want to call it. @MasonCooper42

Regards for reading, and keep gaming, shooting, tackling, winning, flag capturing, cursing, fragging, pwning, and arguing about issues that keeps the gaming industry and this blog among other things red-hot!
