In Other News – 09 March 2012, Weekend Edition!

ION03092012

It’s Friday, or as many of you are calling it, Mass Effect 3 day. I have a currently unopened N7 edition of the game sitting next to me, and I’ve pretty much set aside the entire weekend to sit in my pyjamas, eat delivered pizza and play the hell out of Mass Effect 3. I’ve got a fridge full of Monster energy (currently R30 for two of those giant cans at Shell garages) and have just switched my phone off. It’s time to take back the Earth.

In Other News: The next Xbox may be discless, Quantic Dreams of a Sony future, not even a little Mortal Kombat for Ozzies, Valve’s Steambox is a pipedream and Ghost Recon’s got lots of guns.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because MASS EFFECT 3, BABY!

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
