In Other News – 15 December 2016

2 min read


Well guys, it has been a blast. Say what you like about 2016, but here’s the important lesson to take home: We made this journey together. This will be your final In Other News segment for the year then, but worry not! Your faithful crew of scum and miscreants are going to take a few days off to recharge. We’ll be back super early in 2017. Bigger! Better! Possibly more drunk than ever before!

And I hope you’ll all be back as well for another long ride. This site doesn’t exist without you lot, as you’re the reason why we’re up at the crack of noon every day to get the ball rolling on this site. You’ve all been awesome, and I’m glad you’re my audience. But for now, the ol’ D needs to go run a bubble bath and crank up the Toto to maximum. I bless the raaaaaaaaaaains down in Afriiiiiiiiiiica….

In Other News: Heroes of the Storm saddle up for a winter event, Test Drive lives again and maybe Forza Horizon 3 was too good of a game.
