Can you believe it? We’ve just clocked the first month of a new year in the face. January is dine, dead and ready to be buried this weekend, as we move into February. My most hated of months, because nobody ever accepts the true love that I have for my Hatsune Miku body pillow. You’ll see. You ‘ll all see that true love can conquer any prejudice!

In Other News: Battlefield Hardline is big yo, I suddenly remember that the Ouya was once a thing, Rovio’s head of games flies the coop and Smash Bros adds some huge free content.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because we were too busy learning how to skateboard again. Painfully.

    Heroes of Might and Magic III is still the best in the series for me. They never should have gone 3D

        I didn’t realise that you were that … “fascinated” with Geralt.
        Or that your real name was Jastrid.

    I wouldn’t call Hardline big at 11gb. They have patches bigger than that.

      There will only be one patch for hardline though – said no one ever.

    I just got a 60% off coupon for Fable Anniversary. I’m not interested in the game, but I was curious how much it would cost now. $21 after discount. But that’s not the best part… IT FUCKING HAS DLC TOO. WTF?

    It’s the remaster of a 10? year old game AND it has DLC? Come on.

      I liked Fable 1 from back in the day. But Fable 1 is so short and doesn’t have the world of content. I don’t understand why the remastered edition has to come with DLC when that DLC should have been added to the game. The DLC is just a few cloths and weapon options and all together costs R500. The whole game is not even worth R500.

    Have a great weekend everybody. I’ll just leave this here, think I’ll give the current Remaster a miss and savour the memories for now. That game deserves a remake of this calibre.
