By the time this weekend is done, it will be spring time. Hopefully the transition will take place over the period of day. I need me some spring rain so I can make all the sneezing stop! Also, August winds result in a pool with a nice thick layer of leaves, perfect for filling each afternoon with some nice pool surface skimming action. Kindly leave please winter, the jig is up!
Say what you will about the ALS Ice Buckey challenge, but it’s raising money and awareness for a good cause! It’s reached the gaming community, and game developers are challenging each other to take part. Also, ever wondered what the life of a video game journalist is like? Darryn gave us a sneak peek of his highly efficient work environment.
I looked up the word ‘hacker’ in a dictionary – “A bunch of attention seeking assholes who like to cause mayhem from the safety of their keyboard”. Coincidentally, that’s also the definition for ‘troll’ and ‘online baby’. Why do people hack in the first place?
Oh Japan, what a random place you are! Also, a comic sold for $3 million bucks? I’m kicking off my own series of graphic novels soon, all about a guy who finds that he has the power of vegetables – especially one in particular! I’ll sell it for billions in a few decades.
Best ION Header
It was a really tough choice this week. Who showed off the best buns in the ION? Geoff did of course, with these freaking delicious pork buns! Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to go cry in the corner because I don’t have those in my belly right now!
Apparently there is no room for retail in PC gaming? You all had something to say, racking up a respectable 150 comments on Sandy’s article.
It was all fun and games pointing at Geoff and his Advanced Warfare article which only had 1 comment, but he was saved at the last moment. He now ties with Darryn on Pokemon limited edition news, and myself with Heroes of the Storm getting its own league. There is only one way to determine which 2 comment article is the winner, a fight to the death using only popcorn! This might take a while…
Batman Of The Week
I will never understand the sorcery that is Geoff. Types articles with one hand, pork bun in the other, yet still manages to beat the rest of us, securing him as Batman this week!
Cabbage Of The Week
Yes! I have avoided the power of cabbage for the second week running now! That’s it Sandy, you hold that vegetable up to the stars!
Header Image Of The Week
I’m so looking forward to the Tomb Raider sequel, I can’t wait to explore with that Roma… wait a second. Oh Geoff, your tomfoolery never gets old!
Comment Of The Week
So much win over at Zoe’s hands on with Civilization: Beyond Earth. It all started with one gaming husband stating that perhaps he should request the game for his birthday. What resulted was a unified appeal from the gaming community, which resulted in his wife responding herself!
This is Mrs Brady Miaau. Mr Miaau has neglected to tell you I have bought him Skyrim before 😉 You provided me with a good chuckle now! Thank you dear gamers. I will strongly consider providing my well behaved gentleman daddy and husband the chance to dominate civ space while baby and I are conquering dreamland at night 🙂
Dawwww… I love a happy ending!
Bonus Premium Content
Why yes, of course there is extra content this week. I love NSP, their videos are beyond random, and their songs annoyingly catchy!
