In Other News – 27 January 2012 Weekend Edition

3 min read


Oh what a joy it is to finally have a proper ADSL connection, complete with wireless functionality. I had a blast with the new connection last night, loading up YouTube videos on my iPad with nary a care, while being soundly defeated in a few rounds of Pokémon against what I can only presume is one badass little kid.

I’m looking forward to a solid week of gaming, and to celebrate, I think I’ll go buy myself a new multiplayer-centric title that isn’t in my collection. And don’t say Battlefield 3 guys, because that just isn’t my cup of tea.

In Other News: Gears of War gets all kiddy, the developers behind The Witcher 2 are ridiculously trusting of people and Mario gets ready for another two-dimensional adventure.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post, because we were too busy getting to know the neighbours.
