Man, what a month it has been. Dry in terms of gaming basically, but still, a great month to catch up on some older games, recharge and prepare for the glut of releases ahead. I’m almost done with Binary Domain, my character is levelling up nicely in Dead Island and I’ve sunk over 40 hours so far into Final Fantasy 8, in what will most likely be my final playthrough of that game for many a year. I truly am grateful for these quiet months.

In Other News: The first Assassin’s Creed was the purest, Ouya finds a Final Fantasy, Tony Hawk makes some more cash, Planetside gets delayed, Mel Gibson wants to kill Charlie Sheen, Optimus Prime goes old school and the true cost of being Iron Man.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post, because we were in hospital after being attacked by a NSFL pizza boomerang. (Thanks to TechniKyle for that nightmarish video)
