In Other News – 08 May 2012

Instead of the usual revelations of my sordid life being spilled out here today, I thought that I’d do something a little different today. One of my previous lecturers is busy putting together some research on gaming, and she needs some info to complete it.

So, if you guys love me, you’ll spend a few minutes answering her questions, which can be filled in right here. And if you don’t help her out, I’ll unleash the Kraken Susan Boyle on the ION once again.

Sound fair?

In Other News: Serious Sam kills a few Apple bugs, Mario slips and slides, Arnie can count to ten and we take a look at more footie action, for the thirteenth time.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post, because Gavin and Geoff wanted to murder me after I made a suggestion for what could possibly be the worst Assassin’s Creed expansion of all time.

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.
