In Other News – 17 January 2012

Earlier today, I posted up a story detailing a look behind the scenes of Abraham Lincoln : Vampire Hunter. It got me thinking, what other historical figures would make for great supernatural fighting films? So I came up with a list.

  • Mahatma Ghandi: Griffin Grappler
  • Nelson Mandela: Mummy Mauler
  • Winston Churchill: Werewolf Waster
  • Leonardo Da Vinci: Banshee Brawler
  • Teddy Roosevelt: I’ll shoot any damn thing that exists Killer

Now find me a Hollywood executive who has clearly had too much cocaine, because I think I’m onto something here.

In Other News: Sneak a peak at the Kingdoms of Amalur, Battlefield 3 sees a departure and a $32 000 racing rig.

Here’s the news we didn’t post, because we were too busy pitching the idea of “Lazygamer Writers: Bravely running away in fear” to Hollywood.

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.

Don't stop now.... you're having a good time
