For some of us, it feels like this winter will never end. But there is a silver lining to being snowed in: binge watching tv shows and hammering away on the next cons cosplay. We also have another solution here at the GCE, reading up on all the news you may have missed during the long week. So without further ado, we give you some of the best news you may have missed during the week.
