Recently, I have been featured on Dave Moran’s personal website with a set of questions on my background, interest, loves and what my hopes are for the gaming industry.
I’ve been on Twitter for a number of years now, and there are people on there who I have followed for absolutely ages, one of them is James Woodcock.
I’ve always enjoyed James’ work, especially things like 360Zine and his reviews sping to mind. I was lucky enough to ask him a few questions about his gaming habits and thoughts on the Xbox One and he kindly replied with some great answers that can be found below.

Western Lines of Scotland Review
UK Routes for rail simulation titles focus on a variety of location highlights – be it industrial areas filled with warehouses and bustling with work activities, towns & cities full of traffic and recognisable landmarks or the lush surroundings of vast countryside. The ‘Western Lines of Scotland’ includes more of a gentle setting, as you travel through the pleasant green landscapes with only the tweeting of bird song for company and the infrequent train passing by in the other direction.

I have been a huge fan of the original Xbox and the following Xbox 360 consoles. They always felt one step ahead of the competition with the introduction of Xbox Live, Xbox Live Arcade, Achievements, Gamertags and more besides. However, ever since the Xbox One was announced back in May – the rumblings of discontent have been reverberating through every outlet where the community could be heard.
A series of completely unnecessary errors and outright gaffs on Microsoft’s part have damaged the reputation of the Xbox One and indeed the Xbox brand. What was one of Microsoft’s crowning achievements for garnering generous amounts of goodwill from the community, became tarnished almost overnight with the negative perception of Digital Rights Management (DRM) and the restrictions imposed when attempting to trade used games.
In my second episode of the ‘Game & Gadget Podcast’ dedicated to gaming and technology, we discuss the recent E3 announcements from Microsoft, Sony & Nintendo, Windows 8.1 and Apple’s WWDC event.
Guests include Matt Baxter-Reynolds a mobile software development consultant and technology sociologist based in the UK who blogs for ZDNet and Chris Brandrick a freelance technology writer at Techhive and a blogger for Gigaom.
