Behind the scenes at TSA Towers today there is an air of mild panic. It’s getting close to christmas, all the big games are out and there is nothing to report. No news. Not a squeak. Everything mildly exciting happened at the weekend and today the best we can find is that Shadow of the Colossus is getting a re-release, in Japan, on PS2. Woo! Fortunately after my success with the TSA Tardis, I have managed to cobble together my own Transdimensional Interspatial Timehole System and Arithmetic Random Sequence Equation which allows me to pop over to one of the many multiverses and check out their news. So just for today here is the TSA News from multiverse 1G66TXB-2.

Pac-Man Joins Narcotics Anonymous – Veteran video game star Pac-Man attended his first Narctotics Anonymous meeting last night. Pac was arrested and appeared before a judge last month after he was caught trying to buy drugs by an undercover police officer. The video game world was rocked by the revelation that one of the fathers of modern gaming is a drug addict. We spoke to a close friend of Pac-Man, Sonic The Hedgehog;
“I can’t quite believe it,” he said, “Who would of thought Pac would go poppin’ pills like that? I don’t know what else can go wrong this year, what with this and the shocking news that Space Invader is a transvestite and then Bub and Bob being committed to a mental institution. Where did it all go wrong?”

Can you slip unnoticed past Mrs. Smethwick the kindergarten teacher by hiding inside the Wendy house?” he asked. We then questioned Matt as to how many hours of cut scenes the game will feature and he gave a surprising answer,
“None. None at all. Since our management restructure program, we have decided against cut scenes. Also I’d like to state for the record that Hideo Kojima does still work here and any rumours that we’ve locked him in the broom cupboard are completely false. He’s just having a holiday. A very long holiday.”

Drake has always insisted he was merely catching Ms Frazer after she had ‘jumped over a ravine’ and that he had miss-timed the catch so it appeared he was grasping Ms Frazer’s buttocks and his face was buried in her cleavage.
