The mood in the office today is really down, thanks to the Exclus1ves game sale that went on today.

Basically, anyone who registered within the +/- 2 hour time frame could get games like Fable III, Super Scribblenauts, Dead Rising 2 and Medal of Honor for only R50 each. Problem was that the email validation system that the site uses was giving us errors over and over again. As you can probably guess, once the validation finally went through, all of the games were back up to normal price again. So emo right now. It will be happening again in future though and we will try and get a post up ASAP so that you can all get in on the deals.

On a side note, you have Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit to thank for the header image. I was showing the game to my brother this afternoon and it made me think of The Fast and the Furious, which made me think of Jordana Brewster and I happen to be the guy putting the ION together today.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we were putting on black eyeliner and ordering razor blades online, although Jordana did make us feel a lot better.
