The good the bad and the ugly of the past week – 29 May 2015

3 min read


Forgive my brief intro dear readers, I’m trying to finish work ASAP. No, not because I want to dash off and weekend early (which is a lie actually), but because I’m all set to be an uncle today! I need to rush to the hospital to give my niece a gaming mouse as soon as she’s born… I’m starting her on her gaming career early! Just you wait, we’ll have an eSport legend in a few years for sure!

Best Stories

I’ve only scored a handful of legendaries in Borderlands 2 and the Pre-Sequel, even though I have hundreds of hours clocked for both. For this reason, I’m beyond happy to see that the drop rate of those delicious golden guns is being tripled.

I love Resident Evil, far too much. I’ve played all the core titles, except for Resident Evil 0 which originally launched on the Gamecube. Did you miss it too? You and I are in luck – the zombie prequel is getting a HD remaster!

Worst Stories

There are a few options to choose from when it comes to Virtual Reality. Keen on getting the Oculus Rift? Cool, that’ll be $1500. And now my wallet is crying.

In other bad news, this upcoming Hearthstone player was denied access to a tournament final by his parents. At least he is being mature about it; he will postpone his budding eSport career for a year in favour of his studies.

Lastly, bugs. Again. Dammit Witcher 3, how can you be so awesome but still have so many bugs floating around?

Random Stories

Got $98 000 to spare? Good. This Star Wars Battle Pod will look great in any room of your house! Don’t feel like spending money? Fine, watch this instead:

Oh and here’s some advice: Don’t leave a device in the hands of an unsupervised child. They may just blow R55 000!

Header of the Week


Never bring a gun to a fist fight. Wait… is that a rocket launcher? Oh Darryn!

ION of the Week


Mmmmm cabbage cake… SAID NOBODY EVER! Why would you do this Geoff, why? Especially on my birthday. Oh well, it’s the thought that counts I guess.

Most Comments

Alessandro sunk many hours into the Witcher 3 in as little time as possible to bring you his glowing review. Do you all like it? You must, surely, because there are 193 comments! I need to play through the first 2 still dammit.

Least Comments

An article on the epic battle between Master Chief and four Call of Duty gamers only yielded 4 measly commends? Ow, I am cut deep!

Batman of the Week


Well would you look at that. The true caped crusader has claimed Batman this week. I’ll give you a hint. His name starts with a ‘D’ and ends with an ‘arryn’. Good job old chap! Now if you need me, I’ll be at the mansion doing butler things.

Cabbage of the Week


Yes I am using this image again. I will have my cake and eat it!

Comment of the Week

Hey, don’t hate me. It’s the first time since I’ve been here that I’ve chosen a comment relating to Dota 2. Captain JJ gets the trophy this week for his comment on Valve running the Dota 2 major championships:

It’s Valve, there’s probably going to be huge discounts on the prize money. 75% off!

Is that a Steam Sale I smell?

Bonus Content

I would totally watch this…

And you should watch this too!
