CC Weekly News Recap – 28th May-3rd June 2012

So here we are, heading into E3 and everyone’s beginning the annual E3 scramble. We got companies opting for the pre-show conferences and we’ve got companies hyping up there actual on-show conferences. It’s that time of year guys, E3 fever is taking over, it’s so crazy that even the Green Lantern turned gay. But then again that is more likely due to the completely manufactured to grab attention plotting of DC Comics than anything remotely related to gaming. So much for a clean segue… Oh that’s right! Tomb Raider looks sexy, especially submissive Lara Croft. But this probably isn’t the most appropriate channel to vent my fantasies, so let’s just move on to the recap.
