It’s going to be a heck of a week before the Christmas season, I tells ya. We’re still here, expect for Geoff that is, as we forced him into a vacation cannon and blasted him away a few days earlier.

In Other News: Star Trek goes great, THQ considers some more charity work, Steam gets some NiGHTS, Jackie Chan wants to break his body in The Expendables 3, fake advertising in gaming and a Smurfs trailer that will leave you feeling blue.

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.
