In Other News – 20 November 2012

Gomez

It’s hard to believe, but with Hitman: Absolution out today, 2012 is almost finished when it comes to gaming. Besides Family Guy, Far Cry 3 and a scant few other titles, that’s it. December is empty of new releases, and the next big game release is DmC in January. It hasn’t been at the same level as 2011  in terms of games released, but 2012 has been pretty good overall.

In Other News: Hawken goes beta for a third time, Black Ops 2 gets a patch, Hitman starts a Human Revolution, Nintendo says hacking ain’t no thang, Liam Neeson extends his rage towards mobsters and strippers weigh in on video game strippers.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because we were too busy being horrified by Geoff and his manly moustache creations.

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.
