The good, the bad and the ugly of the last week – 05 September 2014

2 min read


We should really get some generic flavour text for this intro. Something with 11 secret herbs and spices. Dammit, now I want KFC Zinger Wings. You guys wait here and read this while I pop down to go get some of the dunked ones.

Best Story

Hey kids! If you pay pony up some cash, you can play as Handsome Jack in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Or as one of his dopplegangers who look, sound and behave exactly like he does. Sure, the whole season pass bit might feel like a slap in the face for some, but I’m too blinded by my love for the Borderlands franchise to actually give a damn! Ah ah ah! Language!

Worst Story

In a bittersweet victory, Gavin can once again exercise his constitutional rights to free speech dealing with the MSSA and their usual shenanigans. But sometimes, even when you win, you lose. Not that this is over. Not by a long shot.

Best ION Header


Faster than a speeding leak in the Apple mainframe. More powerful than a Reddit thread. Able to leap tall photoshops in a single bound. It’s our winning ION header for the week!

Most Comments

Yep, we have indeed had a facelift, and as usual we value your input, all 145 comments of it. Clearly, this is our worst redesign ever. Well, at least until the next one two years from now. Man, we suck.

Least Comments

This is clearly not the year of the D. One pity comment, count it, one whole pity comment for a dev diary on running, jumping and screaming in Dying Light. C’mon guys, these survival guides for the apocalypse are intentionally filled with the wrong kind of information so that I can use you all as a human buffer between me and the ravenous undead hordes. I mean written for your benefit. Yes, that. Ignore that first bit.

Batman Of The Week


It’s Geoff dammit. It’s always Geoff. What’s the point of even trying? I can’t handle this anymore. It’s time to end it all, I have no choice but to hand in my cowl and tight rubber pants. You’ve bloody won yet again Geoff.

Header Image Of The Week


If you understand what the EA vault story header image was implying, then there’s a chance that you’re almost as sick a freak as the folks who work here with Geoff.

Comment Of The Week

Congrats Alien Emperor Trevor, you have revealed my greatest secret to the world, when you commented on the Arkham Knight post:

Darryn is the Arkham Knight. Think about it.

All those years obsessing about Batman, living Batman, BEING Batman… yet does Batman ever pay him any attention? No. Years of being ignored have left their mark, and he will be ignored no longer. Darryn will not stand for this! He will have his REVENGE!

I believe your punishment should be more…severe.

DVD bonus features

Puppets! Time Travel! Anal molestation with exotic technology that makes no sense whatsoever!

Darryn Bonthuys

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!

  • PERSONA 5!!!! (Umar)

    I swear Trevor sold his soul to the devil

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Shows what you know. I rent it out to the devil so he can understand evil.

      • Kensei Seraph

        So I take it you haven’t met Rince in person?

        • Sith JJ

          Rince isn’t evil. He’s just madness bundled up in a compact ginger package.

          • Kensei Seraph

            I never said he was evil.
            On a completely unrelated note, any idea how many freckles he has?

          • Very worried how you obsess over how I look. You should love me for my soul, not my looks. Oh, fuck…

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          He’s my adorable incompetent little minion.

      • Sageville

        Trevor has Peppermint Butler’s Private number.

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          I had to google that to see if I was being insulted or not :/

          • Sith JJ

            Me too

          • Sageville

            It’s a private reference for cool parents.

    • Sith JJ

      Trevor owns the devil

    • Even the devil wouldn’t waste money on that.

      • Spaffy


  • Sir Rants A Lot: On Pandora

    Darnit. Pity comment wasn’t #pitycomment

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      But it was a pithy comment 😉

      • Sir Rants A Lot: On Pandora


  • Alien Emperor Trevor


  • Unavengedavo

    It should probably be said that if you don’t get the EA vault header, then you shouldn’t Google goatse

  • Hammersteyn
    • Sith JJ

      He wishes he could be as cool as Han Solo (although the “solo” part does suit his #foreverSP)

      • Hammersteyn


      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        And I shoot first! Wait…er… O_O

        • Sir Rants A Lot: On Pandora


        • Sith JJ

          That’s your problem right there. You need to be the only one who shoots

      • Anon A Mouse

        But I’m sure he kills it as Hand Solo….

  • Hammersteyn

    And then @OddSockZA:disqus be like

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      bwhahaha #StayStrongBatman

    • Sageville


    • WarframedSquirrel


    • CAE9872
