ION Age Warning: There may be a picture of a model wearing what amounts to a bathing suit.  Wow. It’s been a bit of a mad day here at LG. So many comments. We have Gavin’s exposé on the poor handling of the farcical “Comic Con SA,” and Gavin’s plea to the community to…wait a minute, today’s all just been a big ruse, a cunning plan to snatch most comments on everything, isn’t it? I’m on to you! Still, it’s been heated – and now it’s the weekend; time for everybody to just chill a bit.

In Other News: Remember Me gets speccy, too many thieves won’t spoil this broth, the gaming industry’s too samey, Far Cry’s Bloody Dragon has sprung a leak and the Witcher 3 won’t be bewitching current gen consoles.

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.
