In Other News – 18 April 2012

With hump day conquered, slapped and made fun, it’s time to start looking forward to the weekend. Right now, most of you with some cash to spare will either be getting ready for Prototype 2 soon, investing in extra controllers for Trials Evolution or have picked up The Witcher 2 already.

I’m busy experiencing the majesty of said witchering game right now actually, and I’m enjoying it so much, that I’ve even put my usual rounds of Kingdom Rush on hold. So, if you haven’t already bought it, check out our contest over here.

For every comment left, a radioactive monkey will attack me.

In Other News: Peter Griffin goes beta and it might be freakin’ sweet, Crysis has a psychotic return awaiting players and Dark Souls PC goes giant.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post, because we were far too busy discussing geography and Dragonball Z enunciation issues.

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.
