Many were excited to hear that TinyCo were putting the finishing touches on what turned out to be called Family Guy: The Quest For Stuff, and I must confess I was one of them. I’m a big Family Guy fan, and I’m an avid Simpsons Tapped Out player so it ticks all the boxes. In the interests of fairness, I have abandoned Springfield for the past week and concentrated all my attention on Quahog to see how it compares.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a fan of Sony. Ever since seeing Final Fantasy VII being played on the original PlayStation, I’ve been enamoured with Sony’s gaming prowess.

They recently did a bang-up job of convincing me of how awesome the PS4 was; so much so, I pre-ordered the thing almost a year ago and never looked back. To date, I’ve had plenty of fun with my PS4, but it’s not perfect – there’s a few things I’d like Sony to improve on, or in some cases, just done differently in the first place.

I do like a good session on Football Manager, however sometimes the pressures of high level management get to me. After a long day at work, I don’t have the energy to massage the egos of two dozen prima donna mouth breathers in their mid-twenties with more money than morals. Fortunately, there’s an interesting little glitch that can be found in one of the Football Managers that allows for instant financial gratification, and it makes for some interesting plot lines….
