I got a nice surprise this morning, in the form of a review copy of the new Nokia Lumia cellphone. It really is a sexy beast so far, and I can’t wait to take her for a spin later tonight. Except that I won’t get a chance, because I’ll have to start collating entries for that Assassin’s Creed contest that you all rushed to enter.

It should have been Geoff, but he beat me in a game of Rock-Paper-Shotgun when he started playing for realsies. So not only do I have to assemble all the entries on my lonesome, I have to do it with a gaping shotgun wound where my left nipple used to be.

In Other News: Resident Evil gets chatty, Borderlands skips a beta and we boost our chievos with some easy games.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post, because we were too busy deciding whether or not shurikens and nerve-gas should be allowed in the amended version of Rock-Paper-Shotgun.

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.
