Man, what a crazy week it has been. We’ve covered all the usual craziness in the gaming world, and cannot wait for the weekend. I’ve finally cleared my current backlog of games, with Infamous 2 being the final title that I played, so I’ll be looking for something else to blister my thumbs with this weekend, at least until February declares war on my bank account.

In Other News: UFC sets a date to punch our faces in, Lara Croft reveals a few new details and four reasons why we’ll never see an HD remake of Final Fantasy 7.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post, because we were too busy trying to get that hammer removed from my face.
