Today isn’t Friday, which means you probably wont find your self passed out in a ditch tomorrow morning, dressed in a tuxedo and scuba gear. On a more positive note, at least it’s not Monday! Below you’ll find the stuff we couldn’t find time to squeeze on to the site today, probably because we were all drunkenly scuba-diving in our tuxedos.

It’s also just one month until the kick-off to the FIFA World Cup, an event that sounds to us like a bloody good reason to drink enough to pass out in a ditch. Also legendary fantasy and Sci-Fi artist Frank Frazetta met DEATH today, so let’s have a drink for him.

Other notable things that happened in history on this day? In 1927 Mercedes-Benz was formed by Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz merging their two companies. You can drive your own Mercedes Benz in Gran Turismo 5 when it finally releases. In 1997 IBM’s Deep Blue defeated Gary Kasparov to become the first super-computer to defeat a chess Grandmaster. Neither Deep Blue or Gary Kasparov are playable in Gran Turismo 5. Probably.

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.
