Man, can you believe that it’s Wednesday already? The week, as usual, has flown by with blistering speed, with hump day pretty much down for the count. Friday is almost here, along with one of my eagerly anticipated titles of the year, Max Payne 3.

I’m curious to see if Rockstar has been able to expand upon and improve what came before it in the first two games. Although with my bad Chuck-Luck, I’m anticipating that the moment I put the game in my console, either the power will go off, or I’ll be hit by a meteorite. Or perhaps both.

In Other News: Conan the Barbarian is on Facebook now, a certain messenger with parkour skills hints at a return, and Orlando Bloom is going to kill you with kindness and several harmful drugs.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post, because we were too busy with our stolen copper wire criminal syndicate gigs.

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.
