In Other News – 20 August 2012

2 min read


Things are sort of back to normal now, besides the fact that Gavin and Geoff can’t stop crying about the fact that they only drank half of Germany and its Kolscht beer dry during Gamescom. The lads are back, with tales to tell and stories to share, so stick around this week, for some awesome hands on insights into upcoming games that they time with last week.

In Other News: Fallout goes to Boston, Sega goes to Samsung, Penelope Cruz in a moustache, rats in a steamy cage, how Dropzone was made, a little bit of Lannister in our pockets and Borderlands 2 has all the guns.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post, because I was too busy helping Gavin and Geoff smuggle stuff past the customs officers at OR Thambo.
