Hip Hop Gamer, a fixture of New York gaming press events and a man of boundless enthusiasm, has traded in his trademark WWE replica John Cena title belt for something cooler and... a little different.

I believe it was two years ago, walking through a crosswalk near the Los Angeles Convention Center, when I informed Hip Hop Gamer that John Cena was corny and lame. I'd like to think it was my words that day that finally convinced HHG to chuck that belt. This new one is far more amazing anyway.

As far as I know, Hip Hop is still the only member of the gaming press to have his own title belt. If there are rivals, let me know.
