The good, the bad and the ugly of the last week – 19 September 2014

My plans for this weekend

Brace yourselves… Christmas is coming! Sure it’s still like 3 months away, but I know it’s around this time of year when the malls start smacking out all the Christmas decor. I’ve written to Santa asking for a new PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, New 3DS, New PC, and a million bucks. I reckon if he gets the letter early enough, he can make it happen for sure. I’m not being too greedy am I?  MUSH RUDOLF, BRING ME MY LOOT!

Best Story

! don’t even know where to begin. It feels like there was a ton of good news for a change. While I am skeptical that Skynet is slowly taking over, how freaking cool is it that Doom can run on a printer?

Alright fine, printers aren’t your cup of tea. What about the Xbox One? We are finally getting it! Liiker? Laquer? Lekker? Mr Bongos finally nails it! We also went back in history to tell you more about the original as well as the 360.

There are some mixed reactions to Microsoft buying Mojang, but let’s be honest here. I think we’re all just somewhat jealous of all that money. Small company going really REALLY big? I see that as good news in my book.

Worst Story

Nobody likes delays. Looks like GTA V on PC is getting pushed back, all with good reason though. It just needs that extra coat of paint.

Read  The Batman Who Laughs creates a dark knight without limits

In other news, Destiny was also bit of a disappointment for many. Even though it sold quite well, Activision Blizzard still lost stock value. Sure they are still probably nice and rich, yet I can’t help feeling a little bad for them. What has this world come to where $325 million in sales isn’t good enough?

Random Story

I only include this category when there are really random stories, and hey, there are two this week! Tablet face strapping action, or Oculus boob grabbing? You be the judge…

Best ION Header

double crunch

South Africa rejoiced this week with the return of a cult classic. I myself had myself a double crunch just the other day and gave it a quick review: Overhyped… still fun to eat, but not really what I was expecting.

Most Comments

Destiny was a mixed bag, and its scores could cost Bungie money. You lot had a ton to say with a whopping 230 comments!

Least Comments

Poor Zoe. She got the lowest comments on her Leaked: complete WWE 2K15 achievements. What a shame! I totally didn’t just comment on my own article an hour ago so we didn’t tie at the bottom or anything…

Batman Of The Week

Totally not Geoff

I’m not going to tell you who Batman is. I won’t even leave you a clue!

Read  Episode 3 of Batman: The Enemy Within arrives on November 21

Cabbage Of The Week

cabbage patch3

I was going to write how once again, I am the cabbage, but I’m just going to go ahead and be a bastard. Umar is your cabbage this week. HE TOTALLY IS! It had nothing to do with the fact that he only had one article up, this review right here. *hug* I know the feel bro!

Header Image Of The Week

FifaCoins

Surprise, Geoff does it again! I really don’t think this is the last time we will see this Messi image being shopped to pieces… IT’S-A ME, MESS-RIO!

Comment Of The Week

.Ok Trev, you win this week with your comment on the bizarre Oculus boob-grabbing game

I’ve changed my mind – VR isn’t a gimmick. I’ve seen the light & it’s warm & rounded.

Bonus Premium Content

It’s a little known fact that we at Lazygamer all take Retaphin. I haven’t climbed a no-tree in weeks! Make your dreams come True Lies today…

    • Mark Treloar

      Yes well done, you win the lure of the week award too, since you managed to snag the spammer.

    • Haha! I hate to say it, but you had far better ones this week than the one that was chosen. I am pretty sure the way they choose YOUR comments is something like this… http://i.imgur.com/rG1AiGn.gif

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        I can’t stop laughing at that. I feel like a terrible person.

        • I am still crying tears of laughter. Humans, can’t burn em, can’t… No wait you can…

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            “Why Colin Farrell got the job as Bullseye instead of Vin Diesel”

  • Rags
    • Hammersteyn

      I knew a game like this, it was called Theme Park by Bullfrog. We probably would have gotten a sequel by know if only EA never existed

      • Rags

        Do yourself a favour and buy Roller Coaster Tycoon 1 from GOG. I’ve sunked months into that game. It kicked Themepark’s ass imo 🙂

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      That looks pretty cool actually. Hmm.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    That cabbage kid looks confused, like someone told him hos work the other way around.

    Also, I guessed it would be Rince, not Umar – you subverted my expectations this time Matty!

    • Wos you means?

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Let’s just say my spelling was deliberate. :/

        • riiiight

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Look at the bottom picture again & think about it 😉

  • Admiral Chief o’ thar 7 Seas

    Arrr, would that be a baby Rince?

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      No, that’s an organic baby. Rince was created in a lab.

  • Doom running on a printer is kind of… weird?

    • hairyknees

      IT’S GOOD NEWS OK! 😛

      • WarframedSquirrel

        Stop shouting at the readers Martha.

        So rude.

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          He gets so excited when someone besides himself comments on one of his articles. trollol!

          • so I didn’t do anything wrong? good news is happy news then

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            You have to understand & make allowances, he plays DOTA… willingly.

          • WarframedSquirrel

            So does Kikmi… explains a lot actually… O_O

          • hahaha.. so does half the guys in my family

          • hairyknees

            I like your family already! 😛

          • hairyknees

            “NOM NOM NOM. WANT MORE!”

            Your response to winning comment of the week for a change……………………….. <3

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            You’re not allowed to take what I say and use it against me. That’s against the rules. 🙁

          • hairyknees

            I know 🙁 that’s why I gave you comment of the week instead!

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Gave? Pah! I earn it, with blood, sweat & copious amounts of hallucinogenics.

          • WIN

        • hairyknees

          🙁

      • Only if you are a print repair man 0_O

  • WarframedSquirrel

    Umar had two articles up… one on Monday and one on Tuesday. Silly Martha.

    Trevor’s cheating or something! Stop paying them off to choose your comment!

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Exactly! #UmarWasRobbed #StayStrongUmar Martha’s biased! #gamersgate Wait.. no he’s not because I w… er… I’m confused.

    • What you said!

  • TGS Babay (Umar)

    Totally not Geoff..lolz

  • You leave Umar alone! It takes him great strength to not dish out an automatic 11/10 for any JRPG ever made, even the ones being made, and the ones that will be made! Be nice to him damn you!

  • “UUUUMMMMMMMAAARRRRRRRR!” http://i.imgur.com/p7FlWsx.gif

  • Weanerdog

    Can’t believe JJ didn’t get it comment of the week it was his birthday and everything.
