And just like that, March was over. The first quarter, three months of 2017. Where’d the go? I don’t know, but they’re never coming back. This week has also gone past ridiculously quickly, which is why we’re giving you a recap of everything that may have come at us too quickly to see.

Best Stories

Sexpo this year was a whole lot of fun, mainly because of the stellar cosplay on show. If you haven’t seen how incredible it was, you really need to check it out. Speaking of things you should check out, Destiny 2 has been revealed with a new trailer that’s worth watching.

Don’t you hate it when you buy DLC for a game, but you can’t play with it with your friends? Battlefield has a solution for that, and I like to think of it as friends with benefits.

But the best story for many of you will be that use of dagga in your own home is a-ok in South Africa.

Worst Stories

If you’ve pre-ordered Persona 5, you still might not get it thanks to some unfortunate stock issues. Samsung Galaxy S8’s face scan security can be circumvented with a picture. But none of that is as bad as the news of what’s happening in South Africa’s democracy.

Random Stories

You know what we need more of? Burgers with bacon and Mac n Cheese on top. Which is exactly what we’re getting now that Guy Fieri’s restaurant is opening in Pretoria.

Header of the Week

Do you believe in life after love, because I love this header image too much.

Comment of the Week

Magoo made us giggle this week when he called out Geoff for being one of very few people who plays Call of Duty for the single player:

There are like 25 people in the world who would buy a copy of CoD for the single player.

Oh, sorry, 26*

Oh Darry, why? WHY?

Honestly, though, the news today is such that we all need cheering up. So, here are the videos we’ve been sharing with each other to add more smiles to the day.



And for old time’s sake…

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let's get on with it!
