Well happy Black Ops 2 day to y’all as well? Why don’t you settle down for a spell, rest those weary thumbs on a controller and dig into some back in black action, huh? Because I can bet you that tonight, it’s pretty much the only game that everyone is going to be playing.

In Other News: A massive statue in the end zone, Epic Mickey 2 gets collectible, Wii u has some boomshakalaka biometrics, Sharlto Copley in space, veterans get rewarded and MacGuyver has plans for the big screen.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because we were too busy realising that we might just be the closest thing to a local version of the Channel Four News Team.

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.
