The Daily Hotness: Dat ‘stache

With GDC shenanigans beginning to ramp up, naturally I’ve been guilted into covering The Daily Hotness for Hamza. After expressing my inability to come up with even the most vaguely entertaining of topics, I heard the words everyone wants to hear from their boss.

“Make it surreal. Have we explored a 70’s disco porn theme yet?”

Battlefield 3 was revealed with some stunning footage, Gaijin Games gobbled up Robotube Games, Gears of War 3 was dated for September, Epic teased next-gen Unreal Engine 3 tech (more meat cubes?), and other nonsense took place on 2/23/11.
