In Other News – 27 February 2012

It’s been a hard days night so far, and while we’ve been working like dogs on the first day of the week so far, we’ve also been marvelling at all the great stuff that’s been arriving in the offices, which has led to the usual opportunities for shenanigans.

Geoff got trolled by Sony and Ster Kinekor with a fake PS Vita, while I captured his anguished cries of pain and remixed them into a dubstep track that will hopefully be picked and bought by a video game developer that is looking to make a teaser trailer using it as a backing track. Hey, it is kinda trendy to do that now, isn’t it?

In Other News: Wifi is in with the PS Vita crowd, Rocksteady gives cryptic bat-hints and we brace ourselves for what could be the final battle in the long-running Handheld gaming wars.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post, because the rest of the gang was trying to harvest my healthy blood and organs in order to stop being so constantly sick.

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.
