I’m more of a musician than a gamer, but the difference is only slight. I was brought up on platformers such as Ratchet and Clank as well as Jak and Daxter, and while that still holds, I now also dabble in immersive FPS games like Far Cry 2 and Killzone 2, not to mention loving the Uncharted series. At the moment I study Composition and sell my music online, as well as manage Audiofictions; a Harry Potter fanfiction podcast. In the future I hope to be a well-known contemporary composer, gaming composer, or gaming journalist.

After 5 years of success and a teary goodbye to David Tennant, the BBC have now announced that they are to push further into the video games market with more licensed games.
One of the franchises mentioned was Doctor Who, but how would they pull it off?
Jak and Daxter was a popular franchise made by Naughty Dog. Spanning four PS2 games and a popular PSP spin-off, the series has been left alone for quite a while now.
So can we expect anything for the future of Jak and Daxter?
Ratchet and Clank started out as a curious game for the PS2, where the blend of comedy, cartoonish violence and sheer absurdity of the weapons charmed everyone who came into contact with it.
Now, its spawned one of the most popular franchises for the PlayStation, and with their second PS3 game being replayed again and again and again, Insomniac Studios seem to be taking a break to focus on their other franchise, Resistance.
So what can we expect to see for the future of Ratchet and Clank?
Some racing games can seem quite unfair. You’ve spent an entire race building up to first place, and just before you cross the finish line some guy shoots you with a missile and blazes past you at twice your speed to steal your hard-earned victory.
Thats why the makers of ModNation racers have promised that their weapons will be more balanced than other racers.
‘Enslaved’ is the interesting, upcoming game from Ninja Theory, where a brawler called ‘Monkey’ (mo-capped by Andy Serkis) is neurologically tied to the mysterious ‘Trip’ in order to protect her.

Good news for those of you who missed out on Heavy Rain the first time, its now restocked across all major retailers!
Sony revealed it’s much anticipated motion-controller on Wednesday to vastly hungry press, eager to see the revolutionary device.
But just how revolutionary is it?
Since the release of the E3 demo, people have been drooling over Kratos’ beautifully rendered face.
But since the release of that demo, things have changed.
Neil Labute was recently interviewed by PlayStation about how Heavy Rain inspired his short film “How Far Would You go For Love?”
It appears that not only is Heavy Rain revolutionising the gaming industry, its also having effects on the outside as well.
God of War is soon to be released and people can’t wait for the closing chapter of Sony’s epic trilogy.
But apparently, we’re not seeing their full vision.
