Evening, 'toiders! Time for another episode of that pesky video game show you've all grown to hate but watch anyway on the off chance one of us accidentally farts on camera. I can't wait for that day.
In the meantime, I learned two things from today's episode: One, plaid is terribly unflattering on camera. And two, Max really hates the name Vita. I mean, I think it's dumb, too, but like every other name for a video game console in history, I think we'll get used to it.
Other notable news of the day includes the big reveal of Catwoman as a playable character in Batman: Arkham City, the announcement of a Spring 2012 release date for Aliens: Colonial Marines, and the untimely demise of certain Android emulators. Also, if you haven't read Max's preview for The War of the Worlds yet, go do it. (He paid me to tell you that.)
