In Other News – 3 May 2016

1 min read


Not everybody likes to snack on stuff while they game. I do – but I hate having oil, grease and chip dust anywhere near my controllers, which puts some of my favourite snacks out of contention; crisps, biltong et al are all out unless I eat them with chopsticks (hey, it works!). So my favoured snack for gaming these days is pretzels. No, not the soft, fresh baked sort (which are amazing) – but the snack sort you buy in bags from your local shop. Little mess, no greasy fingers, and crunchy, savoury noms. Perfect. You tell us though! What do you snack on when you game?

In Other news: No Infinite Warfare on the infinitely old consoles, Kickstarter made Romero its bitch, His Story about Her Story and FROM may be preparing you to die in VR.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we were too busy finding a way to go back in time so we could put money on Leicester to win.

      got a Asus p8p67-le Rev 1.0 Sandybridge (Gen 2) mobo I don’t use. It’s basically this one: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8P67_LE/

      Might I inquire as to why you need it?

        Thanks @Victor_TG:disqus but it’s the wrong socket 🙁 i need a LGA 1366. My mobo kicked the bucket and i am looking to replace it with the same board. I realize that its old but don’t have the cash to upgrade mobo and cpu.

          Well damn… I do have another lead for you but it will only be helpful if you live in Pta or close.

        There have been better days, this day in particular could have done with a mid afternoon break from dishing out crap, but no, it just had to keep going…I’ll have a whiskey to kick off the celebrations of a fallen demon day…

    gums are my favourite, not the sugared ones, just plain, they rock, just need a tissue to rub your hands of any residue, and your back to “shoot to kill!”
