The Daily Hotness: Hovercat

This cat can hover! It’s an adorable video, and if you are thinking about getting a pet you should really look into adoption.

Things are starting to slow down a little bit now that E3 is over, but there are still plenty of interesting things going on. Today we learned that Lara Croft is going to have to fight off potential rape, and Jim did an interesting opinion piece about that. Podtoid might actually talk about video games this week, we have some more interviews from E3, there’s a new episode of The DTOID Show, you can buy your way into DOTA 2, EA might not have lied about Mass Effect 3’s ending, and all kinds of other fun stuff. Stay awhile, stay forever.
