In Other News – 03 July 2014

2 min read


Finally, finally I have a laptop again that can handle the strain of daily writing, video editing and surfing rather questionable websites. It’s been a tough two weeks, and even though it cost me an arm and a leg, it was worth it to get a new hard drive. I’ve got just over 900 gigabytes of space to fill up on the storage medium. Which should hold roughly a quarter of my special folder GIF contents.

In Other News: Transform your weekend, get some Blood Bowl on your tablet, Q-Bert lives once more, the original Mortal Kombat cast are looking good and buff Pikachu is frightening.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because we were too busy knocking on the doors of Jehova’s Witnesses and asking them if they’d like to be Jenova’s Witnesses instead.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    • Hammersteyn

      And talented, seems she can play the piano with her feet O_o

      • Admiral Chief Fairburne

        While drinking and smoking.

        Scratch that, less impressive, since she smokes

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Ja nee, being smoking is one thing, actually smoking is another.

          • Admiral Chief Fairburne

            Flippen sies man, jig

          • Hammersteyn


          • Sith JJ

            From experience you know this? I know you don’t smoke.
            Well, this is awkward.

  • Lardus-Resident Perve

    Picture 4 is nice…and she does not mind the Beard…WINNER!

  • Hammersteyn

    Gods Will Be Watching if anything looks very intriguing

    • Admiral Chief Fairburne

      Is that like a sequel to the gods must be crazy?

      • Hammersteyn

        If it was then the gods have gone completely mental

        • Sith JJ

          Looong time ago.

      Its the most pleasant surprise of my week so far. I thought it got released ages ago and couldn’t remember enough of the game to google it. Thankfully gog made it available for preorder this week, and allowed me to wishlist it 😀

  • Matewis Jubilai

    look what I found! 😀
    I only had the four turtles, and a foot soldier. I desperately wanted Shredder, and of course Beavis & RockSteady 😛

    • Hammersteyn

      You mean Beebop?

      • Admiral Chief Fairburne


        • Matewis Jubilai

          XD hey its been 20 years easy!

          • Hammersteyn

            I can remember most names, but not those teens that drove in the hover car from Dimension X

          • Matewis Jubilai

            Oh I remember that! Huisgenoot used to publish a tmnt comic weekly and I still have the cutouts somewhere in my parents house. I just have to find out what comic is was originally (i.e. pre-afrikaans translation) so that I can perhaps order it off amazon.

          • Admiral Chief Fairburne

            THOSE WERE THE BEST!!!

      • Matewis Jubilai

        Beavis/Elvis I think that is what confused me since Beebop had these sunglasses on that made him look like a rockstar 😛

    • Admiral Chief Fairburne

      RIGHT in the childhood

    • Hammersteyn


      • Matewis Jubilai

        By the way, now LG has at least two batsmen 😀
        Pity that there aren’t more levels…

    • Norm


  • Matewis Jubilai

    So AoE online has died? Can we pretty please now get a proper AoE sequel? Also, a proper Empire Earth sequel while we’re in that ball park.
    Still, at least there is 0ad and the Rise of Nations to look forward to.

  • Wow…..totally speechless………
    Q-Bert is getting rebooted

    • Spaffy

      lol 😛

    • Matewis Jubilai

      Wish I could see his reaction now in Wreck it Ralph

      • Hammersteyn

        Well what do you know? Ralph told him to hang in there and lo and behold, new game 🙂

        • Anon A Mouse

          Why can’t I ever remember anything from a movie I’ve seen? Me brainz is cheddar…

          • Hammersteyn

            I think I saw it last weekend.

  • HvR – Still dislikes Random.or


  • Sageville

    Ugh, no decent games coming out till September, meh
