In Other News – March 12, 2012

2 min read


Maaaaaan, it’s Monday again. Unlike a certain lazy, lasagne-eating, feline, I usually kinda like em. I don’t like today though – not least because I’ve had to stop playing Mass Effect 3. I’m enjoying the hell out of it right now, even though I’m bracing myself for the rage that’s going to happen in the last few minutes of the game. It doesn’t matter though – it’s all totally about the journey, and not the soul-crushing destination, right? Right?

In Other News: In Ashes not on disc, Halo’s the biggest thing in the universe, Crytek prepares for a spectacular spectacular and Peter Molyneux hates Call of duty.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
