We love animals here at PC Gamer. We especially love eating them (apart from Rich, but he's out of the country right now). Occasionally we quite like them when they're not on a plate. Today we were wondering which animal we would choose if we were to have one in the office. Ideally it wouldn't be too tasty. We were thinking of a Slow Loris. What do you think?
Also, Owen has gone mad with power. Tim showed him how to control our servers. "170 ping!?" he cackled, casting his imperious gaze over the server lists, singling out a single innocent player, "who does he think he is? BAN HIM." What games would you like to see us hosting?
