BEHOLD MARIO’S NIPPLES!

It’s the weeeeeeeeeekend! I could not be any more excited for the weekend. The sun is shining, it’s not too warm yet and I have very few social or work obligations this weekend which means it’s likely a weekend of me, in my underwear, eating ice-cream and repeatedly failing Destiny 2’s raid. Sounds like a great weekend to me. Will you be trying the raid? Are you still trying to power level? Are you spending your weekend playing or doing something else? If so, TELL US!

Anyway, it’s been a cracking week. Here’s what we’ve been up to.

Best Stories

Thought Nintendo’s Switch was a console for children, with games for BABIES? DOOM and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus are coming to Nintendo Switch. Het Chris al gery? We may never know. We do now that WhatsApp is busy testing “unsend” features to let you delete your texting mistakes. Wonder Woman 2 has its director sealed, in Patty Jenkins! Hooray! Destiny2’s PVP is good, but it could be better. It’s going to be.

Worst Stories

Overwtach is great. It’s inclusive, it’s diverse and it’s welcoming. Unfortunately, many of its players aren’t and they’re slowing down the game’s development. Waiting for Star Wars? Well wait longer! Star Wars: Episode IX delayed 7 months; will face off against Wonder Woman sequel. The best damned Twitter account ever created is going away. Boo! Twitter’s greatest gaming parody account, KazHiraiCEO, is retiring in 2018. Welp. The face of YouTube gaming has said some racist stuff. Again.

Random Stories

EA doesn’t think you’ll own your games in the future, so they’re laying the foundation for a Netflix-like streaming games service. What the hell Facebook? Who asked for this? Facebook is testing “Instant Video” that downloads while you’re on Wi-Fi. Courting cxontroversy for the sake of it? Probably, but the newest South Park video game has you battling paedophile Catholic priests

Header of the Week

D2servermaintenance

Destiny 2’s servers had to go down for maintenance this week, but I’m pretty sure they just turned them off and back on again.

Comment of the Week

Original Heretic has now made you all think of me sitting in my underwear.

This review becomes hilarious if you read this as if Geoff were reviewing new underwear instead of headphones.
“Arctis is the lightest and most comfortable of the lot of them”
“they feature cups that ditch the patent leather for a specially woven fabric”
“It’s still capable of fitting to just about any sized head though”

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • Gonna hit up some Wildlands! Those Bolivians have it coming!

  • VampyreSquirrel

    Totally agree with the comment of the week.

    Probably just playing Everybody’s Golf, Path of Exile, and whatever else I find time to or can run as I’m not with my pc this weekend.

    • You need to get Wildlands man!

      • VampyreSquirrel

        Have it on PC and PS4, just don’t have my PS4 copy atm

  • Admiral Chief

    7 days to die…hopefully number 7 joins me for a LAN…

  • Admiral Chief

    Oh and cleaning wound and savouring the last of the nomnom pain pills

  • Original Heretic

    Ha! Nice one! I must admit, I gave myself a giggle with that one.
    I didn’t even include the best line from the review article.

    “one of the few sets that I’ve found that doesn’t result in sweat pooling inside the cups after a long gaming session”

    Now y’all are picturing Geoff getting sweaty in his underwear.
    Muhahahahahaha!

  • MonsterCheddar

    Destiny, Destiny and more Destiny…. o/

  • Magoo

    I’m going to see The Narrow tonight!

    Will spend the rest of the weekend binging anime and finishing Far Cry 3 for the xxth time.

    • Dresden

      While I also love FC3, how do you find it fun to finish it multiple times?
      Not being an ass, just curious where it’s replayability lies…

      • Magoo

        It’s in the immersion I guess. I also like to get creative with my weapon loadout.

  • Dresden

    Working most of this weekend :/
    Then it’s back to a bit of PUBG and treating the PS4 a bit (thinking of finishing the last 2 episodes of Life is Strange </3).
