What did we learn this week?
We learned that paying full price for Halo 4 may not be a good idea if you don’t plan to take advantage of the multiplayer. It’s a fine single-player game; there just isn’t enough of it.
We learned that a shit ton of people are playing the new Farming Simulator 2013. We’d like to know why. Is if for the hot tractor on field action? Are the joys of simulated animal husbandry an aphrodisiac? Is it just plain fun? See what I did there? Plain! It’s a homonym!
The staff and one special guest got together to discuss a release day Wii U purchase. The discussion turned out a little one-sided. Oh well.
We learned five more iconic gaming quotes. We’re turning into a regular Bartlett’s up in here.
We tried to teach Cliffy B how to deal with headhunters. Never say yes to the first boy that asks you to prom, Mr. B–especially if he attempts to woo you with technology that hasn’t been relevant since before Britney’s first marriage.
We learned about five games that came to absolutely dominate their respective genres. Farming Simulator may have been a glaring omission.
Twitter taught us all about pregnancy, terds, and the Antichrist, courtesy of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
Happy birthday to Danny DeVito, RuPaul, and Daisy Fuentes, and a very happy Thanksgiving to all of our readers!
