THIS FTW

Hey gentle readers, I missed you. A lot.

Ok, bronze that, it was the last nice thing I’m ever going to say to you. Real Talk will be back very very soon. We had a massively successful E3, and we have all been insanely busy dealing with the massive paper/email storm afterwards. Its a lovely thing to finish (almost) everything up and get back to the usual. In any case, we thank you for your support during E3, and we look forward to the . . . oh weird. I’m being nice again.

In any case, things you probably missed but you shouldn’t have . . .

Yeah, they’re both right (IGN: A breakdown of why Halo and COD suck). They leave out why we play them anyway, but we already know that.

Get ready, you’re going to spend a lot of time talking to and trying to have sex with pixels (Gamespot: Dragon Age 2 CONFIRMED).  Oh, and by the way, I mean you and me both. I vote Morrigan. Oh, Morrigan, I miss you. And my baby.

And 3 . . . MY STARCRAFT II BETA IS PATCHING!!!!!!!!! PHASE 2!!!!! Blizzard, you have this way of making me so happy by disappointing me for days and weeks and months and then NOT disappointing me so that I’m really grateful you’re not doing that anymore. Its like an abusive relationship, I give, you delay, I give, you postpone, I give, you sort’ve deliver and I am SO happy. (UPDATE: Starcraft II’s Second Wave Beta is UP AND RUNNING!)

Missed you,

Love,

James

Ok, not much to say about this one but if you’re into FPSs, HOT DAMN NOW THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT! I’m a massive fan of COD4 and still play it in preference to COD5 and out of all the awesome games coming our way towards the end of the year, this is THE one, AC10 awards and all. Now stop reading and go watch. Check it out in HD and watch out for fourzerotwo.
