The Daily Hotness: Solid Jenkins

For the seventh anniversary of “Leeroy Jenkins,” the Beat Down Boogie crew recreated the infamous video using the reliable pairing of Snake and Ghost. Yup. Just when you think a meme has died off, someone decides to exhume the remains.

Today, Jonathan Holmes is an adult, previews flood in for Ragnarok Odyssey, Orgarhythm, Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, and Fractured Soul, and EA continues to be EA.
