I bought Acclaim’s insane racing game Burnout the other day, only to discover when I got home with it that I’d won that very title in a competition! Fantastic!
This coming Sunday I have to visit Acclaim’s HQ here in London to play against nine other winners for the chance to win a PS2, DVD player and a widescreen TV. Amazing!
With a bit of luck, Christmas could come early this year.
It came as sad news this week that Fastest Gaming News Online has met its demise. Although not as feature laiden as C & VG or IGN, FGN Online proved to be a valuable source of facts when you didn’t really need the braying associated with most of the other gaming sites.
FGN Online joins Urban Fetch London on the very small list of dotcom casualties that I actually feel sad to see the back of. From the reportage (at you, Victoria Beckham!) on the site it looks like the guys have moved on to bigger and better things, which is the best result you can hope for when a business reaches the end of its life.
All the best and thanks for all your effort – it was very much appreciated.
