The Weekend Hotness: Egoraptor wants to be on The Tester

I like to think that the only reason Egoraptor built up such a massive portfolio of web contest was just so that he could one day sweep a casting call vote for a reality TV show. Yep, aaaaaaaall according to plan.

This was a pretty packed weekend in terms of news. We’ve got a ton of videos and screens for several games, including Warhammer Online, Resident Evil Revelations, and Rapala for Kinect (fish punching!). We also reviewed Mortal Kombat: Arcade Kollection and Serious Sam: Double D, plus checked out the upcoming Xbox 360 dashboard update.
