Schwing

As a doctor (of thuganomics, but don’t tell the hospital that) I regularly have to deliver bad news to people. Yesterday may have been the worst day however. A family came in with a child, who had begun exhibiting rather peculiar symptoms. And by that, I mean incredibly stupid hair. Yes folks, there was no doubt about. The sudden appetite increase, lack of intelligence and uniquely singular skillset could only mean one thing: This boy was destined to be an anime protagonist.

And judging by the severity of his terrible hair, it was most likely going to be a Yu Gi Oh anime as well. IT JUST! DOESN’T! GET! ANY! EASIER! Ok, time for lunch.

In Other News: DiRT rally drives at 60fps on console hopefully, Nordic buys some schmup, LEGO adds seasoning passes and Rainbow Six Siege is feeling frigid.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because I was too busy having officials tell me that Stark technology armour is illegal in the Iron Man triathlon next month.

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!

      If only something like this could happen to EA’s game sales after all the shit they’ve pulled. Maybe they’ll stop being so money hungry as well.

      • Hammersteyn

        Either that or they’ll wait for the s**tstorm to pass and do it again

    Now that’s how you deal with this stupid console resolution war, state that the game runs at 1080p on the ps4 and right there and then tell everyone that the xbox will have adaptive resolution, no need for this oh crap we discovered it after release nonsense, good on you codemasters, good on you… In reference to dirt rally, which by the way does greeeaaat on pc…
