Because somebody was moaning about dogs and JURNALIZMS xD

Hello weekend my old friend, it’s been far too long! If you’d be so kind, could you please stretch out till Christmas? That’d be so swell of you, I could really use the extra time to kick back and do as little as possible. In fact, if you could go so far as to last forever, I would be forever grateful. What do you mean you only last 48 hours at a time and that’s “just how things are”? I THOUGHT WE WERE FRIENDS!

Best Stories

What the heck, PlayStation is 20 years old already? Brb fetching my walking stick. When I get back, I want to see a limited edition PS4 that pays homage to the original. Oh, that happened already? Too bad we won’t be getting in South Africa. Remind me why I put this in best stories again?

In other fantastic news, Singstar Frozen is coming! Wait, this means a potential repeat of this… What the hell is up with the best story category today?

Finally, here’s some real good news. In the build up to Christmas, there’s free stuff being given away by Indies. HOORAY!

Worst Stories

Scandal! Deceit! Exploits! All of this and more took place at DreamHack this year. The CS:GO scene in particular suffered a controversy involving a map exploit.

In other sad news, CVG has shut down. They are not the only casualty this year has scene sadly.

Oh and because we live in 2014, there’s not one, but two hacking stories this week. Xbox Live went down, and Denuvo got cracked. HIDE YO ROUTER, COZ THEY HACKIN ERBODY!

Random Stories

Sick of your damn fine Master Race PC or those eye-melting graphics on your new-gen console? Got an old Game Boy serving as nothing more than a paperweight at the moment? Then you could certainly use this hdmyboy. Not interested? Fine! Take a look at this ZX Spectrum remake instead!

Still playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare? Stuck on a tough campaign mission? Darryn has your back – he wrote the most detailed CoD guide I’ve ever seen!

Lastly, a slice of bread voiced by Troy Baker? So much WIN!

Best ION Header


Easiest choice of my life. How can anybody not love Lupin?

Most Comments

I really thought this article was going to get commented on the most. It received lots of feedback, but not quite as much as this one which offered a different opinion.

Least Comments

3 comments? Damn, surely you all could’ve said more about Bravely Second? Just look at that header for crying out loud!

Batman Of The Week


Typical, relinquishes the award for one week, just to make us think we stand a chance, then he swoops back in to put us to shame. Geoff is your Batman once more!

Cabbage Of The Week

Cabbage face

Ever wondered what I look like with my hair down? Well, look no further. I am a sexy cabbage at least!

Header Image Of The Week


Modesty? Pffft… who needs it? I’m awarding myself header of the week for my ingenious use of this bread over Will Smith’s face in my I am Bread article. It looks so real OMG!

Comment Of The Week

Many people had lots to say about Gav’s article on Anita Sarkeesian. Daniel Hallinan’s response though, could be an article itself. If you’re interested, I’d recommend checking it out.

On a lighter note, Trev made me chuckle with this gem on Darryn’s Call of Duty guide.

You left out it takes longer to read this article than to play the campaign.
