Halogasm, Dual Shock the Third, UnStrangled Little Girls, etc.

Amongst the still-glowing embers of confetti and flaming cat helmets resulting from the Halo 3 launch, a clutch of aftershocks emerges: the game runs at “640p”! That’s, like, 80p less! What devilry is this? Nothing, says Bungie, it is just you whiny bitches who [...]
