In Other News – 12 February 2013

Jessica Burciaga

Bah, I’m flying tonight and as usual, my nerves are on edge. Still, I’m at a point where I can just go to my mental happy place, a mind-joy palace if you will, and soothe myself. Why look, I’m in there now, and there are games, comics and a hall of Iron Man armours…Geoff, what the hell are you doing in here? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

In Other News: Beating Xenomorphs without firing a shot, giving up on Kickstarter, getting drunk at a video game show, race for real and free, a God of War ascends, Dodge and Twist is not the name of a new buddy cop movie and the greatest love stories in gaming.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because I was too busy finding my soul mate.

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.

    Colonial Marines, WHYYYYY! At least we have a new Arkham to look forward to this year :)

  • Admiral Chief Erwin

    Now that Darryn’s on his way can we start making fun about the TSA sticking things in all the wrong places when he lands?

    • Admiral Chief Erwin

      Where is he flying to?

        It’s a secret – but I’ll say that it’s “the birthplace of grunge”

        • Admiral Chief Erwin

          Hehe, can we not tip off the security that he is “concealing” something?
