A “Doctor Who” bar – it’s all about time (and beer).

Whilst browsing the ever-delightful (and delightfully filthy) web comic “Hijinks Ensue” today, erstwhile geek wit and gentleman of discernment Joel Watson introduced me to a wholly new thing which melted my noggin – there’s only a “Doctor Who” and Steampunk-themed bar in New York, which goes by the name “The Way Station”.

If you go to the Girl Gone Geek blog, you can read all about it.

...Amy Pond. Pub. Alcohol. Not good bedfellows...

It sounds awesome, to be honest.  An enterprising publican might even get my teetotal behind into such an establishment over here if their hostelry had some mad geek cred to entice me beyond the promise of free-flowing adult beverages.

Mass Effect 3 – now with online multiplayer.

A lesser man would use this news post as an excuse to post a picture of erstwhile “Mass Effect 2” uber-space babe Miranda Lawson (or her real-life inspiration, Australian actress and “Chuck” star, Yvonne Strahovski.

Shallow? Not me.

Nope, round Fluffrick towers, we’re all about Tali.  Which is a long-winded way of telling you that there is “Mass Effect 3” news on the vine and as Eurogamer’s story today alluded, one of the worst-kept secrets in video games has been outed by Australian games mag, PC Powerplay.

“Mass Effect 3”?  It’s shipping with online multiplayer, for the first time in the series.  Bagsy playing as a tooled-up Mordin Solus, complete with punishing ‘Gilbert and Sullivan operetta’ finishing move.

I'm Commander Shepard and I'm going to cut this dude...

If you’re in the UK and feel that Australia is a bit far to go for your magazine-based multiplayer exclusive reveals then Xbox World also have an upcoming cover story (issue out on October 25) where they’re promising more details on the multiplayer joys which await us in March 2012.  If you’re of a role-playing bent, I suspect that “Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” will more or less tide you over until you get to fight the Reapers for the last time.
