You know, I’ve been doing In Other News for around three years now. Three years of exposed skin, tan lines and missed nipples. And I need a break from this feature. So starting this week, I’m going to be sharing the burden joy of ION with my fellow colleagues. We’re each going to handle a day of ION, with a test run this week and resuming in full after the Gamescom madness has passed. In the immortal words of Degeneration X…Are you ready?

In Other News: White power for the Xbox One, double-jump with Toxxik, be teased about about going online with Call Of Duty and the making of Robocod.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because I was too busy wondering how long it would take the others to set the ION on fire.
