This morning, I ate yogurt, muesli, and plums. I threw in some Nutella too, because chocolate. What? It tasted great ok, and that’s all that matters!

Best Stories

THE OVERWATCH BETA IS COMING BACK NEXT WEEK! SORRY FOR THE CAPS BUT I AM REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY EXCITED OK!

OMG DOOM HAS A RELEASE DATE TOO? MORE EXCITEMENT!

WHY AM I STILL YELLING? EASY, BECAUSE ROLLCAGE HAS A SPIRITUAL SUCCESSOR CALLED GRIP AND IT LOOKS RAD!

Worst Stories

Phew, ok I’m done shouting. OR AM I? I do feel the urge still, simply because I know some of you probably received a red screen this week, declaring our site unsafe to visit. We are truly sorry for that, and appreciate you sticking around. HACKERS SUCK. Ok I’m done with the caps, promise.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN ANT SIMULATOR HAS BEEN CANCELLED? What could’ve possibly caused that? Booze and strippers? Well, ok then…

Lastly, Taylor Swift is getting her own mobile game. In unrelated news, I’ll be taking a month of leave whenever the hell it gets released. [Ed’s note: A month to play it]

Random Stories

I love cats, I really do, but even I find the idea of a cat dating simulator absolutely absurd. Who would play that? Anyways, I’m going to get back to my game of Hatoful Boyfriend.

Read  Here’s your first look at the Batman Ninja anime

Want to feel really old? The Sims is now 16 years old. Yeah just let that sink in, and while you’re at it, reminisce a little and tell us all about your memories with the franchise.

Darryn of the Week

Yes, I have renamed the Batman award. This week’s Darryn of the week is, surprise, Darryn. DAMN YOU AND YOUR NEVER ENDING STREAK!

Header Image of the Week

PS4-Dawson

I normally discount headers from articles that go up today, but I’m making an exception. This header by Darryn on his Uncharted 4 PlayStation bundle piece is just too damn amazing!

Most Comments

There were a whopping 226 comments on the XCOM 2 review round up. Sheesh, it’s like you’re all excited for the game or something!

Comment of the Week

I’m sorry, but seeing as Darryn is winning everything this week, he might as well win this too.

DONE DEAL

We all giggled. WE DON’T KNOW WHY, BUT IT WAS EFFING FUNNY OK.

Defence of the Ancients? More like Defence of the cabbages! Have you seen my head? I look like a Merino Sheep on pole. NO SHANGE only SHAPPIES! :D

  • I hate the Dawson sad face meme but shit that Photoshop is excellent

  • HvR

    WORST GOOD,BAD,UGLY EVER!!!!!

    No mention of Xcom2 being released in the best stories and stupid Darryn comment for comment of the week.

    Sometimes you guys deserve your penis pill ads.

    • HvR

      Real comment of the week:

      Commander Admiral Chief:
      Geoff is the boss of Lagz.
      But he is my little bitch.
      My sexy, manly little bitch.

      • Real comment of the week ‘Why are you now with the peasants?’

        • Captain JJ ‘saurus

          I disagree. The full comment of admiral, including the moderated part, is the comment of the week.

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            *Admiral

            (goes to look for a certain pictawr of JJ since I’m no longer accountable for my actions)

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Noooooooooooo

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            Emopster going live in 10 seconds

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            >:(
            NOOO.
            That picture is more powerful than anything I’ve ever posted against you or will in the future. COMBINED

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            (Refresh)
            NOTHING TO LOOOOOOSE

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            WHAT!?

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            You’re going to have people start believing this is me soon

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            Who are you talking to?

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            George Lucas!

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            Is he an emopster too?

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Haha. Funny enough. When you asked me that I looked up, through the window, and saw a guy looking just like George Lucas enter the building here. That’s why I said it 😀

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I don’t. It’s clearly a fake. He’s messing with his eyelashes, and you’re Eyebrow Man.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Exactly!
            Wait..

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            xD

          • Commander Admiral Chief
          • …wow

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            That is JJ…..

          • Okie dokie

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            I know I know. I look terrible without a beard.

          • Your beard is in the wrong place

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            LOL

          • It’s okay. As a MOD I can remove it BWAHAHAHA!

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            So I can laugh with you without feeling nervous about him posting it?
            😀

          • Go for it!

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            Trust me, if you see the pic, you will burst out laughing for ever, permalink

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Sadly I can confirm this.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus
    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      That’s a bit harsh. Are you going through menopause? I saw an ad for that. 😀

    • Commander Admiral Chief

      ^This

      I pop out for a well deserved Birthday Burger with my brother, and our SAP server fucks out, Geoff is a meanie, and I’m stuck at the office instead of being at home

      • Captain JJ ‘saurus

        You have a brother?

        • Commander Admiral Chief

          I do yes. Why does this surprise you?

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Yea. I just didn’t know, so now it seems so unexpected.
            Like when you’ve been working with someone for three years only over the phone and you finally meet them and you’re like: Wait, what?

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            Hence why I think it is best we have not met yet.

            I’d hate to come to the realization that I cannot be affiliated with an emopster

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            But…but…I’m always nice to people.

    • hairyknees

      XD I know exactly how to piss people off

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        You work with Geoff, Darryn & Gavin. How hard was it to learn? ;P

        • Captain JJ ‘saurus

          The word you’re looking for is *indoctrinate

        • So true

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Who can end The D’s streak!?

  • DragonSpirit009

    Figured I share some of my good today with you guys… The ugly and the bad will only be happening on Monday!

    • Captain JJ ‘saurus

      Awesome! Love it.

    • Commander Admiral Chief

      The upvotes! You must have em

    • Jan Prins

      Ooooooohhh… Look at the pretty!!!

    • Looks awesome, good job 😀

      • DragonSpirit009

        Thanks guys! One thing for sure is I’m never working with pastel again!!

        • Jan Prins

          Come on! The software is not THAT bad!

    • This has such a Mushishi vibe to it, I love it xD

      (Mushishi is an awesome anime BTW 😛 )

    • Commander Admiral Chief

      Wait, what is the ugly and the bad?

      Rince and Trevor?

      • DragonSpirit009

        The bad is hearing whats the works final decision for our department and the ugly is most likely me crying myself to sleep.

        • Captain JJ ‘saurus

          Finding other work in the Westernous Republic out of the question?
          I know work is scarce, but have you tried?

          • DragonSpirit009

            Been trying since last year.
            No luck really.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Damn.
            I hope the odds end in your favour, I really do.

          • DragonSpirit009

            Thanks! But I will still be looking for something. They might pull this stunt next year as well.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Yea, keep looking.
            If only we could all do what we really love.

          • DragonSpirit009

            Yeah that would be so awesome!
            Then I could finally be an animator, voice actor, drink beer and adapt pets!

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            I would be a game and movie score writer and possibly also an animator. 😀
            That said. I bought Spriter on Steam a while back for R147. Awesome animation program that. Been using it a lot for a few projects.

          • Mistake Not…

            Game & movie score writer? I like you.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            I would love it so much to do that

          • Mistake Not…

            I wouldn’t mind being at Hans Zimmer or John Williams’ level.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Hans Zimmer ^^^
            Austin Wintory is really good too as a younger composer.
            And Darryn Korb – because Transistor.

          • Mistake Not…

            Ooh, Transistor all day. Can’t wait for Batman v Superman’s score.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Yea man. Totally.

          • Professional snowboarder… awww yiss

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Eish man – here’s hoping for good news.

          • DragonSpirit009

            Thanks! If its good news! I’ll be celebrating with a couple of beers!

        • Damn, hopefully it does not come down to the bad, and is instead good news

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        That’s one of the nicest things you’ve ever said to us!

        • Guy has a heart after all!

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            LOL

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            (refresh)

        • Commander Admiral Chief

          Really?
          (refresh for pic)

  • Captain JJ ‘saurus

    I’ve realised the past two weeks that you can’t have too much Batman in your life.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      And you wonder why I never tell you that you’re right.

      • Captain JJ ‘saurus

        Trevor….do you…..hate Batman?

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          No, I just have Batburnout, Batfatigue & Batboredom from too much Batman. It’d be Batnice if he could take a Batbreak with a BatKit-Kat and go on a Batvacation.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Baby Batsus is not impressed.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            He can go Batcry to his Batmommy. Oh wait!

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            You went there

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            😀

            You set it up, I knocked it down.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            That’s what she said?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I don’t know, I wasn’t listening.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Yoh.
            XD

          • Batnuf!

        • Jan Prins

          Batman sucks!

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            I thought Robin did the sucking…

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            You bad people!
            Nightwing came from being a Robin first, so I’m okay with Robin.

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            Nightwing came eh?

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Yes. And he is Dick Grayson. How about that!?

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            Janee, so much lolz

          • Jan Prins

            Yes! To a pic of Alfred in his undies!

          • Jan Prins

            Come on! The guy is named after a pretty bird! Even Black Canary sounds more bad-ass than Robin!

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Haha.
            That I will not disagree with. But Nightwing is awesomeness.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Yoh.

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            …see below

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            You’re a terrible man!
            But I understand and respect you opinion.
            Also, I will not tell Batman if you are ever kidnapped by the Joker.

          • Jan Prins

            In Skeletor I trust.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Damn.
            I love He-Man characters. Good and evil.

    • Kaihaku

      This week Warner Brothers decided that you don’t need Batman in your life if you’re a Linux or Mac user.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        To be fair, they’re already suffering enough. 😉

        • Kaihaku

          Warner Brothers or Mac users?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Well I meant the Mac & Linux users, but now that I think about it – imagine being the person porting Batman to PC being told to stop worrying about that… he can port it to Linux instead. Ouch.

      • Captain JJ ‘saurus

        But Mac users only need themselves, don’t they? ;P

        • Yup, the rest are playing multiplayer games
