In Other News – 04 February 2013

We were going to have an article addressing video game safety. Not by us, mind you. But by an experienced person who had braved all kinds of hazards. Yes, we had hired Fire Marshall Bill (Burnsie to his pals), to give you all a pep talk. And then he proceeded to highlight the dangers of Gears of War by huffing on a cylinder of gas and throwing zippo lighters down his throat. I’ll you what though, he most certainly did show us “sumthin”.

In Other News: Omerta releases some gangsters, the Last of Us mentions some clickers, Xbox makes even more money, controlling an 80s arcade, a very extended look from Robert Downey Jr, Michael Bay redesigns Transformers and the five games that helped kill THQ.

Here’s the news that we didn’t publish today, because we were too busy trying to figure out what to do with the chuckling corpse of Bill.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

Don't stop now.... you're having a good time
