Wii U. Wii U. Wii U. It’s bloody everywhere today. Everywhere I go, I see a different kind of jolly fat man, one with blue dungarees and a moustache that won’t be shaved off when Movember ends. Enough I say! Enough! And don’t let me see Maria Carey and Justin Bieber killing Christmas once again with an advert of them miming how to use a console!

In Other News: Batman looks shinier, No Omega for the Wii U, Sega teases something new, Square scraps an online killer, no Bird in Star Wars, fighting the power in DmC and we take on The Oregon Trail.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because we were too busy putting Baby in a corner.

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.
