I want you to picture this scene. I’ve got a brand new copy of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, have gone man to plastic cover with the indomitable wrapping, installed it and have activated my online code.

I’ve got my chair ready, a warm cup of tea and a fully charged controller. As I start to play, with the clichéd exploding truck signalling the time for action, and then…! The power trips in my grid. Thanks Eskom, I’m really glad that the 41% tariff increase is going to keep that stellar service running.

In Other News: Dragons are more popular than ghosts, Rage looks set to be scorched, we celebrate immaturity, Liam Neeson has used a specific set of skills to make a movie poster and Microsoft scratches the surface.
