You might have noticed a fresh face on the website today. That’s because we’ve got the ever-enthusiastic Zoe Hawkens on our side for the foreseeable future, while Yolanda recuperates from what was an epic Metallica concert. We’re showing her the ropes breaking her in real nice and slow. Heck, she’s even learnt how to insult my intelligence/sexuality/charisma/lifestyle/hobbies/cooking/choice of movies already!

In Other News: John Goodman was supposed to be in Heavy Rain, 2K is a no go at E3, Skullgirls adds a new fighter, how long it will take to beat a weird Japanese game and Rocky is on Broadway.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because we were too busy having wonderfully fast internet.

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.

    FPS titles linked with better short-term memory? Makes sense, if it was long term memory COD players would realize they are playng the same game over and over………… Starting tomorrow no COD jokes for a week.
