In Other News – August 5, 2011 – Weekend Edition

ION05082011.jpg

So this week, one of our awesome readers that many of you may know as @Uncl3s on Twitter recommended (EDIT: It was actually @Grant_ZA that did the original suggestion) a certain very hot local woman from his past (kinky) for the ION header. More and more people got involved, and before we knew it, it sounded like we were going to have a bunch of dudes posing in Borat leotards.

Thankfully, the very lovely Rikki Brest (I know, best surname ever right?) agreed to be in the image instead. Not only is she good lookin’, but she has some other talents too including being the drummer for Chix with Stix and being an actress in those movie-film-things. All her details (and photos of course) can be found on her website www.rikkibrest.com.

In Other News (Holy heck there’s a lot today…): Weekly round-up, Tons of Battlefield 3 info, Info on Bungie’s new game, Why Sony pumps out exclusives so often, An Awesome Mortal Kombat casting call, Female Shepard and the hypocrites, Catherine Cosplay and loads more to keep you busy for the weekend.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we were all trying on our neon leotards in the office, much to the dismay of the locals.
