Ganked! Saturday edition.
Ethec here with a weekend lowdown segment that my hazy Saturday morning brain has decided to temporarily label "Ganked!" Ganked in MMOG circles means, generically, to get ripped off. If someone comes along and in one round obliterates the feeble blightrat you've been struggling to kill without mana for the last 3 hours, thus taking all the experience and loot, you've been ganked.
Just like you've been ganked if you came here hoping to see some fresh insights from our mutual friend, Boomjack. To that end, no worries. Boomjack will be back on Monday with the "Loading..." segment that makes us laugh, cry, and want to curdle into our MMOG news turtleshell with the sheer ridiculousness of it all.
For now your forced to see what I consider funny. I've received word that what I consider funny is currently being printed out, wadded up, and used in conjunction with duct tape to plug small holes in Scandanavian oil tankers. This is a happy development; I'm glad to be doing my part to help the environment.
Without any further ado, on to the real news you can't really use. You can't make this stuff up.
