The Daily Hotness: Flawless victory

Ever wonder how a fight to the death between an otter and a walrus would go down? Me neither. The otter’s cuteness was super effective, though.

Rather productive day, I’d say. We found out about L.A. Noire thanks to Jim’s review, a crazy new game set in the Batman universe was announced, Sony divulged what games it’ll be offering as compensation for the PlayStation Network woes, Hilary P. Helghast had a date with a beanbag, and more on 5/16/11.
