Thanks to the fact that I possibly have the least reliable Telkom ADSL line in the whole of South Africa, I was barely able to keep in touch with what was going on in the gaming industry, never mind posting about it.

There is however a remedy for those lost souls such as mine, and it involves two parts links for the missed news, and one part incredibly hot woman, to ease the frustration of internet-less-ness.

In Other News: Our weekly round-up of all our Lazygamer features, reviews etc, Modern Warfare 3 is copying Modern Warfare 1, Diablo 3 might be adding a mechanic (not that kind!), Top 10 video game intro sequences and a truck ton more.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because… what? Yes… yes random Telkom person on phone, I’ll hold… … … do dooo ree dooooo, do doooo re doooo, do doooo dooo dooooooo doooreeerooooo.
