In Other News – 17 September 2014

1 min read


We’re coming up on expo season here in Joburg. There are a bunch of cool ones at The Dome and Gallagher Estates. In fact, I will be attending Sexpo soon, as press. Sometimes I wonder how I ended up with this job…

As much as our ION image is a tall glass of nope for me (I have zero desire to put a hot curling iron next to my eyeball), I understand that it’s our very own JJ’s birthday today. So here’s a tool to help when applying all that eyeliner.

In other news: Quake gets Steamy, Destiny’s raids take ages and Goat Simulator comes to a tablet near you.

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!

  • Admiral Chief Assassin

    Bwahahahahahahahaha you actually did it Zoe!


    • JJ the Reus

      Kind of made my day, in some odd way. 🙂

      • Admiral Chief Assassin

        I came up with the idea, but Zoe masterfully executed it!

  • Admiral Chief Assassin

    I’m sure if we all pitch in we can “gift” him this?

  • Alien Emperor Trevor


    • Admiral Chief Assassin

      I MAY have had a hand in this….huehuehue

      • HvR

        What is truely impressive is with the release of Ass Creed Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey JJ’s eyeliner persona lasted a whole release cycle.

        • JJ the Reus

          Haha. That is impressive

    • JJ the Reus

      Now I can make pretty for you 😉

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        But I likes you just the way yous is

  • Hammersteyn

    Everyone needs to see the John Wick trailer!

    • Admiral Chief Assassin

      I agree!

      • Hammersteyn

        Matrix for what?

  • Hammersteyn

    If Obi-Wan Kenobi gets his own movie then Qui-Gon Jinn has to be in it as well, oh please let Liam Neeson reprise his role.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Does that Orc have gold teeth? They must have filmed it in the Cape Flats.

    • Hammersteyn

      No gap though

  • Hammersteyn

    14 hours for the first Destiny raid O_0

    • WarframedSquirrel

      That’s insane! Not a single WoW raid takes that long… unless if you’re absolutely SHITE at the game.

    • Wraith

      Think that might not be actual time taken, but rather how long the event was open for before completion (would be equal if they played non-stop :D).

      • Hammersteyn

        I kinda meant it’s longer that the SP campaign but yeah, imagine they had to do it in one sitting O_o

        • and there K/D low (For PVE) which means that it going to punish average players

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Hire some Chinese guy to play it for you.

          • Hammersteyn


  • Hammersteyn

    I’d rather wear crocs than those PS4 sneakers :/

  • Really? Microsoft couldn’t have done a wireless Xbone Controller for PC? means I have to stick to my 360 pad which still is fine , just want those extra vibrations.

  • WarframedSquirrel

    Happy birthday to the “Absent” eyeliner using JJ!

    • JJ the Reus

      Thanks man

  • WarframedSquirrel

    Damn Zoe… how is a “gaming journalist” getting into Sexpo as press?

    Oh… wait… just thought about it… nevermind… O_O

    • Mark Treloar

      Its because she likes the vibrating triggers on the Xbone controller?

  • JJ the Reus

    Thanks. I guess. 🙂
    So much for feeling like a badass while playing Splinter Cell.

    • Sir Rants A Lot: On Pandora

      Happy happy!

    • Admiral Chief Assassin


  • TGS Babay (Umar)

    “fans, fanboys and fanatics.”- Lolz-alot!

  • Weanerdog

    Happy Birthday JJ, hope you lots of awesomeness for the year ahead.

  • Sir Rants A Lot: On Pandora

    What is it with you and long, round shaped vanity/grooming products Zoe?

  • Ryanza
    • Admiral Chief Assassin

      Sneaky ninja stole the staff!
