In Other News – 18 May 2012 Weekend Edition

Jo-Garcia-3

Well, that’s another week of hard work down for the count. By now, most of you are probably clicking away in Diablo 3, or slaughtering nameless minions in Max Payne 3. Heck, some of you might even be hitting both those games, for a double whammy of awesome gaming.

I’ll hopefully be joining in later for at least one of those games this weekend, but right now, I think I’m going to go unwind with a manly cup of Irish tea, some sour jelly beans, and a few of my favourite cartoons.

Weekends, I loves ya.

Before I bugger off, don’t forget to give the ION a like, if the lady above pleases you. It’s Jo Garcia, a gaming favourite of mine, as chosen by Mohammed Mayet. If she doesn’t please you, then send more likes to our other two entrants, here and here. Remember, the winner gets something from us, so cast your votes, and send more submissions to gavin@lazygamer.net .

In Other News: Lego goes dark with Batman fever, Sly Cooper steals his way onto the PS Vita, why E3 might suck this year and Sean Bean fights Nazi super-soldiers.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post, because I was too busy bleaching my eyes, after inadvertently switching the Google safe search off which lead to some nightmare fuel imagery.

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.
