The good, the bad and the ugly of the last week – 10 October 2014

AWWWWWWWWWWWW

As far as I’m concerned, this weekend is all about anger. People will gather at The Dome to vent their frustrations, throw rocks at each other, and talk at INCREDIBLY LOUD VOLUMES. Isn’t that what the rAge expo is all about?

Best Stories

Are you attending rAge? Here’s a list of what you’ll be able to play at the expo. I definitely want to get a look at Mortal Kombat X! Don’t forget there will be a ton of local indie goodness for you to get your paws on. If you can spare some time, try check out the DGC which will be taking place too. Their prize pools grew larger, meaning that the stakes are even higher.

Worst Stories

Granted, I haven’t followed Naruto for many years, but that didn’t stop me from having to hold back manly tears when I read that the manga is officially going to end. At least there is a movie scheduled for December.

Yay, the Vita is finally getting some DLNA support! The PS4 isn’t though, not yet anyways… we hope. Come now Sony, give the fans what they want!

As much as I like teasing them for being made of money, I still find it sad that Activision stocks went down thanks to the failed promises on their latest game, Destiny, and issues with other games. Will they be fine? Probably.

Random Stories

I love stickman drawings, always have since I was kid (probably because that is the extent of my artistic capabilites). What happens when those little figures come to life? All manners of mayhem of course!

Read  The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are coming to Injustice 2

Do you happen to have large amounts of money lying around that you don’t know what to spend on? You probably want to keep an eye on this expensive looking project from Microsoft. It’ll bring your living room to life for crying out loud!

Oh, and I’ll just leave this here, because WTF is that name even?

Best ION Header

HGHheader

A homegrown hottie that doesn’t have people complaining? What is this even??? Well played Jadie Hoon, you win 50 lazygamer points!

Most Comments

A female Dota 2 team was kicked out of a tournament because one of their players seemed to be too good, just like a boy? Sounds legit! It may have been the language barrier which resulted in the poor choice of words from the admin, but the article had 114 comments discussing everything from why there are female only tournaments in the first place, to why didn’t they just follow the damn Skype rules. Admiral Chief Erwinning also didn’t like my use of his ban hammer as the header. I’m sorry ok? You can have it back now!

Least Comments

I don’t know what the heck happened, but the comment counter on the site seems to have died during the course of this week. The lowest comments award goes to every single article after 3pm on Wednesday, because I’m far too lazy to open each and every single one to see just how many comments there really are. Therefore, we all lose!

Batman Of The Week

batgirl

Well well well… Geoff has finally been dethroned. Zoe is your caped crusader this week, BOOM!

Read  Batman: The Merciless creates a dark knight in a neverending war

Cabbage Of The Week

MMMMMM

It was nice not being vegetable for a change last week. Did you miss me? I’m back baby, I have returned with a vengeance as the cabbage of the week!

Header Image Of The Week

BF4-trust-fail

We give Zoe a lot of grief for her poor Photoshop skills. At least she tries, right? I almost can’t see the excess pixels in this header if I close my eyes a littlea lot … completely.

Comment Of The Week

Granted, it may not be gaming related, but we chuckled nonetheless on the comment on Gav’s fishing trip article about helping girls get into gaming . Well played Viking of Divinity!

“Dullstroom – A drinking town with a Fishing Problem”

Bonus Premium Content

I’m Old Gregg! I apologise in advance for this video. You’d better watch it though! You wouldn’t want to end up like Curly Jefferson, would you?

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

  • Captain JJ Underleyened

    I say no to that ION, but well done Viking! *crowds cheering*

    • what are you possibly finding wrong with that ION?

      • Captain JJ Underleyened

        It’s not food. I had a very disappointing lunch now, I think that’s the problem.

        • Hammersteyn

          Not because she stole your eyeliner? 😛

          • Captain JJ Underleyened

            Hmmmphh

        • Welll that’s debateable.

          • Captain JJ Underleyened

      Little fella looks so happy.

      • oVg Definitive and Remastered

        He finally has a friend willing to accept his hair colour.
        Even if the other dude is trying to FATALITY his ass 😛

        • Oi! I kicked his ass! The game is tight man. Really. You have to get it.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Must be photoshopped 😛

    • oVg Definitive and Remastered

      Ok… I eat my words. refresh

      • HvR

        The blonde looks like she realized she is not being paid enough.

        • oVg Definitive and Remastered

          Or RINCE farted.

          • ReaperOfSquirrels

            Or that’s her soul being drained.

  • Viking Of Divinity

    FINALLY!!!! BWAHAHAHAHHA!!!! umm.. I mean,, I’d like to thank the academy….

    • Hammersteyn

      Nice one XD

    • CAE9872

      Sigh – do I have to coach all recipients all the time.

      You HAVE to thank – mom, dad, brother, sister (doesn’t matter if you don’t have any), sponsor, spouse, TV, PC, ESKOM, Telkom, hairdresser, masseusse, etc.

      But well played on the comment…hahahaha.

      • oVg Definitive and Remastered

        You forgot GOD.

        • Viking Of Divinity

          and Satan?

        • and the comments go pear shaped from here.

          • Captain JJ Underleyened

            LOL

          • oVg Definitive and Remastered

            My bad 🙁 I just visited N24 for 5 seconds, that was all it took 😛

        • Hammersteyn

          What about Oprah Winfrey?

          • oVg Definitive and Remastered

            She is under your seat.

          • Hammersteyn

            With a jar of bees probably

          • oVg Definitive and Remastered

            FREE bees

          • CAE9872

            Dr Paul isn’t it?

        • CAE9872

          Provided he encapsulates all known Gods/gods then we yes and we should be fine…we can come back in a week and he may just about be done with acceptance speech.

        • Hammersteyn

          Oh and Tom Cruise, his witchcraft is picking up nicely

      • Captain JJ Underleyened

        I’m not sure what he’s supposed to thank ESKOM for.

        • Hammersteyn

          Setting the tone for romance all over the country?

        • CAE9872

          Power – unless he uses generator! No power no internet, no internet no GLOWING comment of week.

        • oVg Definitive and Remastered

          For the eeeelektriiiiicity.

          • Captain JJ Underleyened

            Let’s not forget the insane price increases, the inability to actually give us enough power and how they manage to pay their own people exorbitant salaries for…well…I’m still figuring out what they actually do.

          • oVg Definitive and Remastered

            While our South African Salaries stay the same for 5 years watching everything from rent and gym memberships jump by 10% every year without fail.

          • Captain JJ Underleyened

            I hear you. The entry level salary at our company for “skilled professionals” hasn’t changed in seven years. I kid you not.

          • HvR

            Except for two times (which was “inflation related”) in 7 years my salary only ever went up when I changed jobs.

          • Kensei Seraph – Staff

            For achieving BEE goals (I sh*t you not).

    • Captain JJ Underleyened

      The Viking Academy? Dude. Where is this magical place?

      • CAE9872

        Inside “How to Train Your Dragon” naturally.

        • Kensei Seraph – Staff

          Where they teach subjects such as “How to Pillage”, “Raiding 101” and “Dragon Taming for the Steel Skulled”.

    • Skyblue

      Dude, that comment is pure epic! Nice!

  • Admiral Chief 0

    Dullstroom ftw

    • Hammersteyn

      Sounds fun, they might not have enough booze for me though.

    • ReaperOfSquirrels

      Do you even know where Dullstroom is?

  • Hammersteyn

    Nice one ZOE

  • oVg Definitive and Remastered

    DAFUQ?

    • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

      RUN PEOPLE RUN! YOUR SOULS ARE IN DANGER!!!

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Yes, that’s what she’s thinking from the looks of it.

    • Captain JJ Underleyened

      DAFUQ with you?

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Maybe he’s trying to say that even in heels Chun-Li is only 3 feet tall.

        • Captain JJ Underleyened

          Very good observation there. I think that might just be it.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Should I be worried that I can understand trollish?

    • HvR

      He is turning red, probably the overdose of fresh virgin souls.

      • Kensei Seraph – Staff

        Souls cause gingers to go brown (freckles).

  • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

    Best comment is bestest

  • SideEffectZA

    Naruto ending so soon? What?! What?!? WHAT!!? So sad.
