I like to think that here at Lazygamer, we’re more than just a South African site. Partly because our own government refuses to acknowledge that we even exist, after that incident with the Japanese Prime Minister. But we’ve got a pretty global audience, of kickass readers and miscreants who leave comments behind for Star Citizen referral codes.

Lately, we’ve also noticed a lot of Kenyan activity on the site. Activity from our African brothers and sisters who have clearly made a terrible choice in their daily fix of news, but we love ‘em anyway. So all to those readers from the quickest nation on the African continent Habari Gani from all of us here. And to the rest of the best continent IN THE WOOOORLD, hello as well! Just give me a second to Google what I need to say here…

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Mistake Not…

    I suck at Risk of Rain. Only unlocked one character so far. Tips?

    • Pariah

      Play something easier, like Candy Crush Saga or Solitaire.

      • Captain JJ the “saviour”

        Candy Crush is for primary school kids and Solitaire is for government workers.

        • Pariah

          Hence the “easier” proclamation at the beginning of my suggestion. baby steps.

          • Captain JJ the “saviour”

            XD

      • Mistake Not…
