Hello August, also known to some as the windy month. The seasons are starting to make their changes and regardless of where you live in the world, it doesn’t matter if it’s getting hotter or colder because all we know that we all have one upcoming season in common… gaming season. The heavy hitters are coming folks, so start getting hyped up.

In Other News: Arma III already looking better than Battlefield 3? Borderlands 2 confirmed? Batman has the most awesome unlockable skins ever in Arkham City? That’s a lot of question marks!

Here’s the news we didn’t post because Darryn spent his weekend playing around with some little Korean kid with a handicap. Hey, his words… not mine.
