US News Wrap, August 12 - What Happened Today

Today was almost painfully slow, and while we did get a big big of news with the Counter Strike drop from Valve, it's almost as if the entire industry is just phoning it in until the onslaught starts on Tuesday.

In other words, enjoy the lull while you still can. You have three full days to get some rest before we start shoving loads of goodness down your eager throats. Wait, that did not sound right. I swear, my mind is just disgusting. Anyway, my shift is up. Get wrapped up below. God, I did it again.

That's it for me today. I will see you tomorrow.
