The gym down the road from me has belonged to team red for over a week. I’ve just logged into Pokémon GO now though, and seen that it has just been claimed by yellow. Hooray – guess I’m not the only schmuck who chose this team after all!
Holy crap there was a lot of good news this week. I’m gonna round them up for you real quick:
- Evolve going F2P was a smart move. The game has seen a healthy increase in players.
- Almost $1.3 million was raised for charity by the Summer Games Done Quick marathon.
- Blizzard unveiled Ana for Overwatch.
- We’re giving away tickets to Oppikoppi! Want to win them? Be sure check to out our interview with Albert Frost.
- The Digital Gaming League announced a R100 000 Dota 2 Masters Tournament.
- Valve is finally cracking down on CS:GO gambling websites.
- Nintendo unveiled the NES for ants. WE MUST HAVE IT!
Thankfully, there weren’t many bad stories this week. The only one that comes to mind in fact, is that Pokemon GO was able to access Google account information on iOS. Damn, now some hacker probably knows about my subscription to Farmers Weekly!
Sheesh, there were a ton of random stories this week too. Here’s a quick summary of them all:
- We unboxed the Nvidia GTX 1060. Hot damn!
- We also unboxed the latest orange box from Nerd Nab. Just look at all that loot!
- Darryn wrote something about the crazy world of Pokémon GO.
- He also wrote about what to do when you accidentally stumble upon drug deal while playing Pokémon GO.
- On that topic, you can find all your missing Pokémon with PokéMapper.
- You can get Morgl the Oracle for free in Hearthstone – if you recruit a friend.
Is Darryn Batman Forever?
Owlman of the Week
Go away Kervyn, there’s a new Owlman on the block! Who is it? I’ll give you a hint – his name starts with a ‘K’ and ends with a ‘yle’.
Header of the Week
I’ll just leave this here because it made me giggle. Ever wandered into a drug deal while playing Pokemon GO? That’s the expression you’ll see when you do.
That article on Battlefield getting its own TV series got you all talking. It nabbed a very respectable 70 comments!
Comments of the Week
MY favourite comments this week came from Darryn’s piece on accidentally wondering into a drug deal while playing Pokémon GO. The overall confusion is just amazing!
- “Heh?” – Sageville
- “Dafuq did I just read, did the Bratva feed you coke before writing this :)” – RustedFaith
- “I feel like this is some kind of riddle… or mistake?” – Dane
- “What the hell did I just read?” – VampyreSquirrel
- “I had to read it from right to left” – Ottokie
- “I am so confused” – DrKiller
Only Darryn can cause chaos of this scale. It’s ok people, the effects are temporary. You’ll feel normal again in no time at all!
