Breaking Cat News 021

Apparently the internet is busy debating llamas and dresses. I tried to care, but I failed miserably. Instead, I’m going to go watch my Netflix front page in anticipation of House of Cards season 3 becoming available. Oh, and breaking news cats because they’re amazing.

Best Story

I am really happy about all the local developers who are making some fantastic looking games. Some of them are available for backing on Kickstarter while others are being released as free projects. Either way, I think South African game development is preparing for a major boom.

But the best news of the week is how awesome our community is. Just check out the comment section on Geoff’s article about a gay dating sim.

Worst Story

We may never see DriveClub’s free PS Plus version, a big shame for fans of the driving genre who just aren’t willing to fork out for the full game. Add to that the fact that local co-op isn’t working for Resident Evil Revelations 2 on PC and news about women leaving the tech/gaming industry and there are plenty of reasons to be discouraged this week.

Best ION Header

I have been desperate for American-style fried mozzarella lately. It’s seriously all I want – crumbed and crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside, and happily dunked in marinara sauce. Anyone know where I can get it in Joburg? Anyone? I am willing to travel for it I’m that obsessed.

Most Comments

It’s me this week, that’s right – I’m such a winner for my article about women leaving tech faster than they can be replaced. You all had lots of crazy work experiences to share, as well as comments about sexism in the workplace. Thanks for the interesting discussion, even if there was some sea lioning.

Least Comments

You win some, you lose some. In this case, I did both. Biggest comment loser of the week is the same as the winner thanks to my paltry one comment about Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate’s tantric approach to launch trailers.

Batman of the Week

Dragon ball bat

Sometimes, Batman hits comes from unexpected places. However, this is not one of those times – Darryn killed us all this week. It wasn’t even close. Kamehamehuh?

I hope you’re not lactose intolerant because this header image from Darryn is legen…. DAIRY!

Comment of the Week

I wanted to steal this for my “i rate this non-review a kamehame out of ha” comment on Darryn’s non-review post. But we can’t be winners in all the sections – this one is all about you and we loved the comment from Loftus on the gay dating sim article.

I’m homophobic, but only in the way I’m arachnophobia. I have
nothing against spiders or gays. But I would
scream if either of them drops on me while I’m in the bath

Bonus Content

Watch this to the end for the best thing ever.

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. You can read more of my words over at www.borngeek.co.za, or just follow me on all the social networks to get the true range of my sarcasm and wit.
