I swear, it wasn’t me that was responsible for the site going down for a full two minutes today. That was Richmond. Somehow, he managed to wander out of the server room, pause to face us, deliver an eloquent speech with dramatic pauses and whatnot, before we cornered him with brooms and chased him back inside. And that’s the truth, or my middle name isn’t Judas.

In Other News: The iPad goes mini, Torchlight wants some Minecraft lovin’, The 3DS sells terribly in the west, Tomb Raider box art revealed and Borderlands becomes Legen – wait for it – dary. Also, don’t forget to enter our Assassin’s Creed 3 comp, or you’ll make Geoff sadder than a moustachioed weirdo without Windows 8.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because we were too busy getting stung by bees.
