Whoo man, I’m slightly wrecked, but at least I’m ready for the Halo 4 tourney tonight. My plan? Simple. Even though I doubt that I’ll be a match for anyone who has a number in their gamertag, my strategy will be to scream like a castrated banshee whenever someone attacks me, as that will distract them long enough for me to gain an advantage. Ha, I can’t lose!

In Other News: A million players have seen the Halo ending, people are pissed off with Square Enix, no VIce City for you, Mickey makes some decisions, why Forza Horizon is here to stay, Tiger Woods teams up with Arnold Palmer and 3D chainsaws.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because I was too busy strapping grenades to my Spartan soldier helmet, in case anyone thinks of teabagging me tonight.

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.
