A few days ago, I got a phone call from the guys at Penny Arcade. They told me that I was picked for Omegathon. What this means is your favourite games blogger is an Omeganaut!

I’ve seen a few of these beauties floating around the net, and I’ve compiled some of the best for my wonderful readers. The following pictures are in reaction to the latest Grand Theft Auto: V trailer and they’re even better than anything Rockstar could have done.
