Co-Op versus House
To an Englishman, his home is his castle. It is also a massive albatross that hangs from his neck like a money sucking leech. I love my new house, but the combination of tidying, repairs and paying for the damn thing really gets in the way of gaming. If I am not standing in the pouring rain fixing the guttering with a shoe innersole (I am not very DIY handy), I am looking at all my potential gaming money being spent on keeping a roof over my head. Gone are the days of buying the latest releases and basking in the new instruction manual smell; instead this is replaced with relying on a game rental service which provides random games – some co-op, others not.

Co-Op versus Kids
I am yet to hear the sound of tiny feet running over my perfectly polished wooden flooring, but that is not to mean that Kids have not already made a heavy dent into my gaming time; especially co-op gaming. My brother and many of my friends now have children and this means they have little to no time to play online. I have to arrange several weeks in advance to get a game with a mate; even going so far as to arrange trips out for our wives so that we can stay at home and game. When did it all get so difficult?
