Tech I love – BE Broadband competition

[I’ve meant to write this piece for a while and it just so happens that BE broadband, my own personal provider are running a competition at the same time. Call it serendipity. Anyway.]

Let me tell you a story. It begins back in 1989 when I was four years old. A frosty Christmas morn, found me awakening to a large box under (really next to, it was that big) the tree. Inside was a Sega Master System. At the time, my tiny child-brain exploded. This was a whole new world of stories, entertainment and happiness.

Spoilers! Leg It!

The Shelf of Unfinished Games – The List

[UPDATE: XBL tag in the comments section if anyone wants to help me do a few of these in co-op, Lost Planet 2, Borderlands etc!]

Whilst choosing what to play the other day, I came to a profound realisation. I have seven (!) unfinished games sitting on my shelf. Seven! Good games as well, none of this movie tie-in or accessory-lead music tripe. I refuse to believe I have left so many proud games behind! I really need to focus my chi and clear out the backlog if I’m honest.

Lets’ take a look at the candidates. (The pics will have links to the separate articles once they’re up!)

Hit the jump for the full list……

Not even alphabetised. Tsch.
