Christmas Wishes From The Industry

MCV asked a few people form the Gameing industry what they wanted for Christmas. These are their answers:

Doug Bone, Square Enix
1) Gamers to inherit the Earth back (from Nicole Kidman, Patrick Stewart, Julie Walters and their chums).
2) A publisher merger/acquisition to take place, but without all of their rivals instantly pretending to “welcome the challenge”, whilst secretly running to the toilet every ten minutes.
3) Larry Sparks to get through a meeting without reminding me how successful Tomb Raider was.

Andy Payne, Mastertronic/ELSPA

1) For Garry Williams to stop quoting the Treaty of Rome, referring to ‘Long Tails’, ‘slicing of the salami’, ‘pocket money prices’, ‘delaystation’ and other meaningless jargon in our new office.
2) For Garry Williams to read his incoming emails and actually understand them before jumping to conclusions, and to cease and desist from providing a Les Dawson-style version of assorted Pussy Cat Dolls tracks every time a female member of staff walks into the office.
3) Thus leading to Garry Williams reading his outward bound emails and ensuring that they are focused, to the point and free of double line spacing, rants and quadruple dots. Oh yes, and for said mails to refer to the sender’s subject matter as opposed to resembling the ramblings of James Joyce on a bad day with piles. If Jesus and/or Mohammed can deliver these, then I will convert to their religions toute suite!
