In Other News – 08 January 2016

2 min read


Oh man, these three-day work weeks are the worst, am I right? It has been completely weird getting back into the daily grind, especially the bits where my face is physically forced onto an angle grinder as punishment for every typo that I make. But in a way, I’d missed the exhilarating beat of covering news, reviews and top ten lists about why Kit-Kat chocolates are infinitely superior to Bar-Ones in every way possible. Yes, you know I’m right.

In Other News: The true story behind pimped out game controllers, Hellblade gets a helldate, PC gamers get ready for the rapture and Psychonauts 2 gets some major coin.

Also, tomorrow, one of our favourites turns really, really, really old. Happy Birthday, OvG you old curmudgeon.


Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because I was being told that not knowing what a prefix is isn’t the end of the word.
