weekend-spotted

Man it’s hot. I would go take a swim, but my pool is now covered in about 568 layers of fallen leaves. Dammit trees, it’s Spring for crying out loud, not August! Oh right, the wrap up. Sorry, I often get distracted by OH COME ON LEAVES STOP FALLING!

Best Story

Destiny is out this week, that’s good news, right? What do you think of the game?

Also, Logitech are putting together a neat sponsorship which will be fought for this weekend. Let’s not forget about Divinity: Original Sin. The kickstarter game has gone on top be a huge success!

Worst Story

While I’m not a big Xbox fan myself, it does make me sad to see that the poor thing is failing so hard in Japan. Maybe Bill can fly on over and hand some out to the masses? That might help somewhat!

I also can’t believe that ESPN don’t see eSport as a sport. What blows me away is that some gamers agree with them. ALL MY RABID CLICKING COUNTS AS PHYSICAL EXERTION IN MY BOOK MMMKAY! I’ve seen this damn piece of news debated on just about every platform, including a Whatsapp group with all my gaming friends.

Random Story

Smart watches. What are they even? While I don’t quite get the fad myself, It looks like this piece of tech may well be the next big thing in gaming. That seems a bit over the top to me!

Best ION Header

dafuq

What the heck is this device? Oh it’s a magic wand. I should get one and add it to my Harry Potter merchandise!

Most Comments

PC gamers really are a bunch of cheapskates. Seriously, 236 comments where people offered up their 2c? BRB checking Steam sales!

Least Comments

HAHA, some idiot only got 1 comment on their article. I wonder who that poor sap… oh. Nevermind, nothing to see here, move right along! You too Umar… ssssh, let’s just pretend this never happened!

Batman Of The Week

Death-Metal-Batman-Animation-Music-Video

I’m so tired of Geoff being the caped crusader, seriously. Could we please get a Bane in to break his back, I mean his winning streak?

Cabbage Of The Week

cabbage_dog

I have accepted the cabbage award many a time! I think it’s time to get my own sidekick. Say hello to Cabbage-Pup! He will… go well in a vegetable soup. YEAH, SUPER POWERS!

Header Image Of The Week

Babaynana

Awwww what a cute kid. Who does it belong to, I wonder?

Comment Of The Week

Some couples really have it tough, especially when trying to get their significant other to take part in gaming goodness. Poor Nahuel Graziani… what people will do for love!

Tried to introduce my girlfriend into gaming. She wanted a High-School Musical game with a dance mat. She made me dance with her. We danced a lot. This was not the kind of co-op gaming I expected, Gears of War would have sufficed.

Bonus Premium Content

Why yes, I do have a visuals for you today! I totally didn’t steal this video from a certain Wookiee’s Website

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

  • Great week folks. Rather sad that Trevor wasn’t even nominated, he had some great material this week!

    • Hammersteyn

      He’s like that magic wand Zoe used in the header, never off.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      I know right, this must be how Leo feels. I don’t know what happened. Could I have done something wrong? #NotASport 😉

      • Hammersteyn

        It’s not because you’re a cheapskate when you buy games is it?

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Maybe it’s because I implied Geoff’s beautiful with the lights off :/

          • Hammersteyn

            So you had a go at Matty and Geoff? Starting to make sense why you lost out this week.

          • I actually nominated “Facehugger and Falafel” as comment of the week.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I had to google falafel to get the spelling right. I work hard at this stuff people! #truestory #itsnoteasybeinggreen #what 😀

          • Admiral Chief Assassin

            I knew how to spell it because of subtitles in Batman Begins

          • Kensei Seraph

            I know how to spell it but I don’t know where I learnt it…
            How is this possible?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            *push falafel probe under the table*

          • HvR

            I know how to spell it because the words Anat’s Falafels with extra chili sauce is permanently etched into certain parts of my anatomy.

          • #wow #weallknow

      • hairyknees

        All those cabbage hate comments had NOTHING TO DO WITH IT! 😛

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          SHUTUPIHATEYOU!

        • Admiral Chief Assassin

          Bwahahahahahaha

        • hahahahah

      • No man. You were playing your A game. I don’t know what to say. #stayStrongTrevor

      • JJ the Reus

        Hey man. At least you’ve won comment of the week. Us peasants are just kept around to make sure the comments section doesn’t dry out.

        • Admiral Chief Assassin

          Indeed, the three weeks in a row CotW is STILL not unlocked by me 🙁

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            It’s the holy grail.

          • Admiral Chief Assassin

            Indeed
            *deep sigh*

            I MUST HAVE THIS!!!

        • Speak for yourself, virgin comment winner *RUNS

          • Admiral Chief Assassin

            Oh snap!

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          You’re not a peasant, you game on a PC.

          • Peasant Commenter?

          • Admiral Chief Assassin

            Nah, peasants are peasants. Maybe nooblet commenter? (my CoD lingo is limited)

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

          • Admiral Chief Assassin

            Commenteyeliner

          • lulz

          • Mmm, 7/10, not a bad try 😉

          • Admiral Chief Assassin

            Hmmm, I’d like to get that to 10/10 but I fear once I start on the silly CoD path, I will lose touch with reality…

          • JJ the Reus

            This is true.

        • Spaffy

          I won once, in my early days.
          I framed the screenshot.

          • JJ the Reus

            I would too man.

        • Weanerdog

          Dude even little old me has won a comment of the week. Seriously, just put some effort into it.

          • JJ the Reus

            But I do. Admiral just always rigs the awards so I can’t get it 😉

          • Weanerdog

            Just teasing 😉

    • JJ the Reus

      He’s won enough.

  • 99 red balloons, fun stuff, his face lol

  • Hammersteyn

    Geoff again? You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villian.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      yoh

      • Hammersteyn

        The internet, what else will we find?

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          I was hoping for some peace, love & understanding. I suppose technically 2 out of 3 isn’t bad.

    • Admiral Chief Assassin

      O_O

    • Wowza 0_O

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    The pain expressed in that comment made me lol in sympathy.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Honestly thought you were going to say that Cabbage Dog is an actual DOTA character.

    • WarframedSquirrel

      New mod incoming?

      • Kensei Seraph

        New courier* incoming.
        Fixed it for you.

  • Admiral Chief Assassin

    • Hammersteyn

      Just had to watch that video again!

      • Admiral Chief Assassin

        Same here, love it! MY FACE, SO TOUGH!

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          But are your pants SO TIGHT?

  • WarframedSquirrel

    Awesome week of weird sh*t happening all over the internet and world. Have an awesome weekend if I don’t comment again before I leave for Durban.

    • Admiral Chief Assassin

      You want me to pick you up from the airport?

      • WarframedSquirrel

        Thanks, but we’re driving down.

        • Admiral Chief Assassin

          I was actually going to offer picking you up, but since I live in SnorToria, I would have had to make the trip myself (holiday woooohoooo) or just leave you standing there…

          • WarframedSquirrel

            Lol, I know you’re in SnorToria, but I could have been flying back up on Sunday and made the trip to Lanseria… and stood there… or “told” you that I’d be landing there… and left you waiting there… same idea I guess.

          • Admiral Chief Assassin

            Hahaha, you think I would have been there?

            Huehuehue, ok, sure, I’ll go pick you up 😛

          • Admiral Chief Assassin

            I’ll pick you up….do you drink enough water? Would you consider your kidneys “healthy”?

          • WarframedSquirrel

            lol… Kidneys are “Well used”… Liver is probably worse though. Will be sure to keep an eye on you if I ever meet you in person.

    • Norm

      Durban. The place to be.

    • Cool man, I’ll be seeing you in October I hope!

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        I’m sure he “hopes” too.

        • You shut up!

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            lol

      • WarframedSquirrel

        I hope so too dude, I’m planning the whole rAge weekend already.

        • Me too. Looks like I’ll be flying up on Thursday afternoon and leaving on Sunday!

  • JJ the Reus

    That comment deserved it.

  • Kensei Seraph

    Something I realized while looking at yesterday’s ION this morning, we didn’t have a Cosplay Wednesday this week!

  • Kensei Seraph

    I’m NUUCLEAR
    I’m WIILD.

    • Admiral Chief Assassin

      No way, did you also listen to the song recently? It popped up on my random playlist a short while ago, on repeat now

  • Viking Of Science

    And now for something completely different: http://youtu.be/4fNoHXcLvgU

  • Sir Rants A Lot: On Pandora
