By now, I’d reckon that the majority of you are nursing massive Saint Paddys day hangovers, no doubt having been exacerbated by Irish company, green drinks, flowing alcohol  and sessions of intense pinching against people who were not wearing green.

Well, except for Cape Town, but we’ll leave the nanny-state discussion out of this one. I had quite a chilled weekend, rarely venturing out of my habitat, preferring instead to catch up on some Mass Effect 3 action and several other games due for review.

So how about you guys, did you engage in some Hollywood-worthy escapades this weekend?

In Other News: Minecraft blasts off into space, Hideo Kojima prepares to shine and Austrailia takes a step closer to not being an authoritarian nightmare for mature gamers.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post, because we were too busy deciding which tramp stamp tattoos we wanted to get.

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.
