In Other News – 23 January 2013


Right now it is, I estimate, at least 300 degrees centigrade as I sit here. Honestly, I’m resting my fat, hairy ass here in little more than my underwear with a fan providing a slight breeze and yet – still -  a pool of sweat collects around my man-plums. I’d wipe it down, but the lady here at Mugg and Bean says she won’t give me any more napkins.

In Other News: EA are a bunch of tricksters, Dante dresses up, Killer is Dead is alive, real life Juri will kick your behind and video games lie about women.

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
