I’m kinda hopped up on flu meds today, as I explore dusty old books to understand why my rejuvenation spells are no longer sucking the health out of the Lazygamer crew, so you’ll have to do without an amusing anecdote today, I’m afraid. Then again, you’re probably all playing Far Cry 3 right now anyway, aren’t you? Bah!

In Other News: Guillermo Del Toro may just go inSANE after all, what the original creator of XCom thinks of the new game, Notch is going to charge ya, Mass Effect 3 detonates a new operation this weekend, and we fiddle with a fiddle.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because we were too busy pitching a new sports show that would star Vaas Botha and myself.

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.
