US News Wrap, August 25 - What Happened Today
Stick a fork in me, because I am finished for the day. Below the break you can find out what I was up to all day here at VG247 headquarters.

Like The_Red said: "Wow, love this trailer! So bloody and so awesome (Bloody awesome?)"
Gameloft has released a trailer for its latest in the Modern Combat mobile franchise.
Brink goodies are now on Steam and XBLA.
Cars, racing, and tracks.
So, they're like Green Day, with bagpipes, eh DSB? May have to give them a listen.
Global Agenda's getting bigger this fall.
I want this damn Alpaca.
I still think it looks a bit scary and I really want to shoot some of those things.
Unlike the first Steel Battalion game, Heavy Armor isn't all about the controller, apparently.
Looks like another St. Valentine's Massacre of sorts is heading folks way.
Glad it is no long delayed into October on XBL aren't you?
The title says it all really, and he makes a rather good argument at times.
I wonder, is this man available for birthday or anniversary parties?
No reason not to do it. It's free.
Buy RIFT on the cheap or try it for free.
Kim Swift is back with Quantum Conundrum.
Remember, tomorrow, and choose Templar. I took the test sometime last year, and that is what the result was, which was not too surprising either.
Still haven't tried EQII? Now is your chance.
Seriously, he looks just like Akiro.
Damn you Steam and your lovely sales.
We are really interested in trying this one out next year.
Here's another collector's edition to go along with the others you have displayed on your shelf, which you no doubt show off to women when they come over. Sorry, we're laughing really hard at that last bit there. Women. Coming over to your place. Hahahaha.
I had a day like this mech did a while back. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It kind of hurts.
Right. See you tomorrow.
