The good, the bad and the ugly of the last week – 3 October 2014

5 min read


I had plans of hibernating in bed, playing 3DS solidly for the entire weekend, then I remembered I’ve got to get my ass onto a bike and get training. This sadly means I need to venture into the outside world. The sun is such a cruel mistress! Anyways, here’s the news you might have missed this week.

Best Story

It’s always nice to see that our local talent is going places, and this time, the place our one team going is France. Energy eSports are headed to the Electronic Sports World Cup! It’s going to be a great opportunity for them, and we wish them all the best.

In other news, somebody turned these kitties into adorable assassins. Pipe down, I don’t care what your argument is… cats win the Internet by default!

Lastly, it’s not every day we read about hackers being caught, but these few were. I might forgive the theft from the U.S Army or even Microsoft. Theft from Valve on the other hand is inexcusable. How dare you target lord gaben!

Worst Story

The saddest story this week is undoubtedly our server being the source of many, MANY headaches for everybody at the office – especially Geoff. The poor guy was forced to drink excessively (more than normal) thanks to all the error establishing database connection messages he got. I myself had a mini heart attack each time I wanted to read comments on our apology article and my tab had that heading.

Read  Rumour: Matt Reeves' Batman movie to exist completely outside of DCEU

Random Story

I was against Smart Watches, at least until some chap decided to run Minecraft and Doom on his. You have my interest, show me more! Bananas, I will no longer be able to take them seriously. WTF IS THIS? Let’s not forgot about those strawberries either…

Also, who knew that Microsoft couldn’t count? Let’s just skip Windows 9 they said! Coincidentally, 9 is 3 cubed, and we all know who hates the number 3. GABE NEWELL OWNS MICROSOFT? You read it here first!

Best ION Header


Geoff really knows his way to my heart (through the stomach, duh). Every Tuesday he features the best looking and tasting food, and before I know it, I find my keyboard covered in my own drool. I need me a schwarma right this second!

Most Comments

PS Plus is going up? WHAT MADNESS IS THIS? People were outraged, sad, and even questioned the mathematical ability of Darryn (as well as the definition of slightly) in 101 comments. He’s right guys, go get your calculators or a nearby varsity professor to double check. Let’s be honest though, even at that new price, the service is still well worth every cent. It’s just that Sony saved it for the absolute last second to tell anybody the change was happening which has everybody grabbing their riot gear.

Least Comments

You know what isn’t over 9000? The comment on Darryn’s article for the new Dragon Ball Xenoverse gameplay footage. At least it wasn’t a pity comment… those all end up on my articles which thankfully save me from this award!

Read  Episode 4 of Telltale’s Batman: The Enemy Within arrives on January 23

Batman Of The Week

Which is Zoe and Which is Darryn........................

This week really was close for Batman. Darryn, Geoff, and Zoe were neck and neck. In the end, we all knew who it would be. Geoff uses his magical Asian abilities once more to secure the top spot!

Cabbage Of The Week


This doesn’t happen very often, but when it does, I crack open the champagne and celebrate. Guess who your cabbage is this week? I’ll give you a hint: his name starts with a ‘S’ and ends in an ‘ANDY’

Header Image Of The Week


I quite enjoyed this header by Geoff. So simple, so elegant, so Daisy!

Comment Of The Week

We are genuinely sorry that our server being full of crap was the source of much pain for you. We just never realised it was THIS bad (we are so sorry oVg):

It was easier playing Destiny off-line than logging onto Lazygamer yesterday.

Bonus Premium Content

Glub Glub! Glub Glub! Charlie I have the amulet! The choo-choo-shoe! PUT A BANANA IN YOUR EAR! Charlie the Unicorn is old news… this video still makes me giggle each time though – so enjoy if you have never seen it before <3

Defence of the Ancients? More like Defence of the cabbages! Have you seen my head? I look like a Merino Sheep on pole. NO SHANGE only SHAPPIES! :D

  • oVg Definitive and Remastered


    • Hammersteyn

      XD made me laugh all over again

    • I actually laughed at your comment. Which is unusual as I’m usually too busy laughing at you…

      • Alien Emperor Trevor


        • This is usually what I think when I speak to @ovgrounded:disqus

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            When you’re together I think this… *runnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn*

  • Hammersteyn
    • HvR

      +1 well done Geoff.

      Saw this one yesterday:
      “My boss told me yesterday dress for the job you one day want and not the job you have. Yeah brilliant advice. Today I’m sitting in a fucking disciplinary hearing dressed as Batman”

      • Lord Chaos

        Better than sitting there with nothing.

      • Hammersteyn


  • ReaperOfSquirrels

    lol! oVg back on form for comment of the week!
    Also congrats Geoff and Sandy!
    Another week down the tube! WOOHOO!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Oh no you don’t. You’re still the cabbage Martha. “lord gaben” indeed. FAKE PC GAMER!

    • hairyknees

      Oh sorry was it meant to be in caps? I wasn’t really paying attention 😛

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Shut up! Or I’ll shave your knees so the arrows can bypass your fur armour.

        • hairyknees

          NOT MY KNEES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :'(

  • Admiral Chief 0

    GAAAH stupid charlie the unicorn

    • ReaperOfSquirrels

      Someone needs to kill that from the internet forever!!!

    • ReaperOfSquirrels

      That being said, if you kill a rainbow treasure goblin on Diablo 3 you can go into an area where you kill unicorns and teddy bears… always makes me feel like I’m killing a charlie the unicorn fan every time one of those buggers goes down.

      • Lord Chaos

        *Chubby Unicorns*

        Great fun, but thought I was tripping the first time it happened.

        • ReaperOfSquirrels

          Yeah, some rifts have areas that have those enemies… was the first time I saw them and quickly checked my drink and box of smokes for any foreign substances.

  • Just got my copy of Shadow of Mordor from Kalahari, my weekend has been planned.

    5 Discs, damn PC-DVD games are getting out of hand, don’t understand why the move to blu-ray hasn’t started yet?

    • BD isnt a standard on PC; whereas most okes have a DVD drive at least.

      • Hammersteyn

        MASTER RACE!

        • CAE9872

          hahahaha…I actually thought PC was like “Blu-ray is so last gen”…we onto the hyper super duper Blu Ray now.

          Seems I was wrong…

          • Lord Chaos

            Nah, there’s no disk based media, we install from flash drive. 😛

      • I’m still on a DVD drive myself but would gladly upgrade sooner or later if it sheds time, this has been the first game I’ve ever had soo many discs to install

        But in a few years I can see either the switch to Blu Ray or the total annihilation of discs(which I love)but with it would mean One disc to rule them all…. until the cycle starts again.

        Still on disc 3 -_-

        • Kensei Seraph – Staff

          Wow, you must be fairly new to PC gaming then.
          I remember installing at least 2 games with 6 discs and several more with 4 discs.

          • Been on PC since around 6-7 years now, but yeah all with PC-DVD’s, I did have a few old cd’s that had a few discs install but yeah I overlooked it since it was CD’s.

            I kinda have an OCD/phobia with tooo many discs, I’m afraid that with too many, one will end up not working when needed etc even though I always keep them firmly in their case’s but have been burned before i.e Max Payne 3 disc 3 had mysteriously given in.

  • Brady miaau

    Damn, so it is really friday?

    • Lord Chaos

      Don’t worry, only 3 sleeps and it’ll be Monday again.

      • GAH!

      • Hammersteyn


      • Weanerdog

        Well in Geoff’s case only 3 more sleeps till Christmas.

        • Lord Chaos

          You missed a few zeros

          • Brady miaau

            ge00000000f? I dont get it?

          • Weanerdog

            Because he suffers from insomnia.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      I’m disappointed too.

  • Well done @ovgrounded:disqus you’re back on form! Bow down @disqus_DoEH3TsffU:disqus

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Does this mean we’ll start seeing him at lunches again? 😀

  • HvR

    Disappointed in the video, not enough Friday zing. Try this:


    • Mark Treloar

      So wrong, yet so right.

  • CAE9872

    And in other news (I know it isn’t 4pm) but…I got an Xbox One. I couldn’t wait anymore. I am a sad bastard…sheesh backbone of a jelly!

    But hey…Xbox One…or is it Boner?

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      I think you get to decide that after switching it on & seeing just how much you like it 😉

      • CAE9872

        Well ironically after looking at the 2 Forza games I got; I may end up playing Warframe a bit 🙂

    • hairyknees

      Please send me the controller. Thanks <3

  • Kensei Seraph – Staff

    I want to know where that Batman pic comes from?
