The good, the bad and the ugly of the last week – 10 October 2014

4 min read


As far as I’m concerned, this weekend is all about anger. People will gather at The Dome to vent their frustrations, throw rocks at each other, and talk at INCREDIBLY LOUD VOLUMES. Isn’t that what the rAge expo is all about?

Best Stories

Are you attending rAge? Here’s a list of what you’ll be able to play at the expo. I definitely want to get a look at Mortal Kombat X! Don’t forget there will be a ton of local indie goodness for you to get your paws on. If you can spare some time, try check out the DGC which will be taking place too. Their prize pools grew larger, meaning that the stakes are even higher.

Worst Stories

Granted, I haven’t followed Naruto for many years, but that didn’t stop me from having to hold back manly tears when I read that the manga is officially going to end. At least there is a movie scheduled for December.

Yay, the Vita is finally getting some DLNA support! The PS4 isn’t though, not yet anyways… we hope. Come now Sony, give the fans what they want!

As much as I like teasing them for being made of money, I still find it sad that Activision stocks went down thanks to the failed promises on their latest game, Destiny, and issues with other games. Will they be fine? Probably.

Random Stories

I love stickman drawings, always have since I was kid (probably because that is the extent of my artistic capabilites). What happens when those little figures come to life? All manners of mayhem of course!

Do you happen to have large amounts of money lying around that you don’t know what to spend on? You probably want to keep an eye on this expensive looking project from Microsoft. It’ll bring your living room to life for crying out loud!

Oh, and I’ll just leave this here, because WTF is that name even?

Best ION Header


A homegrown hottie that doesn’t have people complaining? What is this even??? Well played Jadie Hoon, you win 50 lazygamer points!

Most Comments

A female Dota 2 team was kicked out of a tournament because one of their players seemed to be too good, just like a boy? Sounds legit! It may have been the language barrier which resulted in the poor choice of words from the admin, but the article had 114 comments discussing everything from why there are female only tournaments in the first place, to why didn’t they just follow the damn Skype rules. Admiral Chief Erwinning also didn’t like my use of his ban hammer as the header. I’m sorry ok? You can have it back now!

Least Comments

I don’t know what the heck happened, but the comment counter on the site seems to have died during the course of this week. The lowest comments award goes to every single article after 3pm on Wednesday, because I’m far too lazy to open each and every single one to see just how many comments there really are. Therefore, we all lose!

Batman Of The Week


Well well well… Geoff has finally been dethroned. Zoe is your caped crusader this week, BOOM!

Cabbage Of The Week


It was nice not being vegetable for a change last week. Did you miss me? I’m back baby, I have returned with a vengeance as the cabbage of the week!

Header Image Of The Week


We give Zoe a lot of grief for her poor Photoshop skills. At least she tries, right? I almost can’t see the excess pixels in this header if I close my eyes a littlea lot … completely.

Comment Of The Week

Granted, it may not be gaming related, but we chuckled nonetheless on the comment on Gav’s fishing trip article about helping girls get into gaming . Well played Viking of Divinity!

“Dullstroom – A drinking town with a Fishing Problem”

Bonus Premium Content

I’m Old Gregg! I apologise in advance for this video. You’d better watch it though! You wouldn’t want to end up like Curly Jefferson, would you?
