Mufasa-Monday

Guys, I think I’ve set a world record for 2016. Primarily, a record for ION, and not posting a single daily wrap-up where I confused 2016 for 2015. I’m so…I’m so happy. Maybe this year, I finally ascend to a higher state of intelligence. Maybe this year, I can finally be respected and…oh wait, scratch that thought. I appear to have broken another Xbox One headset, thanks to the stupid headset entry pins. Back to square one then.

In Other News: Try and say Forza Porsche six times fast, Killer Instinct prepares for an arbitration, adventurous Mana this week and real-life Splatoon weapons.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because I was too busy using my Trump card to get out of trouble. Uncle Donald is always there for me.

Oh, you thought we forgot, didn’t you? Here’s an admiral’s hat cake, for our own Admiral Chief Erwin, who turns middle aged today!

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
