We're a small operation here at Game Revolution. We do everything we can to bring you every bit of news possible. Unfortunately, we can't cover everything that happens in a day. We've been using our Twitter account to catch up at a bite-sized pace, but not everyone hears from us on Twitter either! So that's why you're reading The News. Every headline we didn't cover with our witty, fantastic words, wrapped up nicely for your digestion. Everyday we'll continue to deliver the hottest news and tie a nice little bow on everything else for you in the evening.
