Friday Jambalaya: Video Game Trailers, Star Trek Casting & and Ancient Bug!

Somehow it is already December 2nd. How? We're honestly not sure here...

And once again, we arrive at the end of the week. It’s now officially December and the days are just flashing by as 2016 speeds towards the holiday season and its inevitable end. It’s that time of year when stress is the name of the game.

Our advice? Take some time to yourself and relax. Perhaps with Brad and Hanna’s feelings on Arrival or Cole’s latest Trekification where he describes the gruelling saga that was watching Star Trek: Nemesis. And then, perhaps click through this week’s jambalaya of links. There’s funny, there’s exciting and a little bit of everything else!
