Much like one of my favourite westerns, it’s time to settle in for the good, the bad and the ugly of the last week!

Best Story

More a feature than an actual story, but a damn fun one nonetheless as Zoe let fly with the silly ahead of the elections. Linking various parties to various games, it was all rather silly indeed, and on the verge of being interrupted by a stiff British army officer telling us to move along and cut our hair.

But it was the good kind of silly.

Worst Story

It’s the end of an era. If you grew up in the same time period that I did, then you can mostly likely fondly recall jamming some Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater while licensed tracks such as Blood Brothers from Papa Roach made your 1080 Benihana so memorable.

After years of games and sequels however, Neversoft is instead being absorbed in Infinity Ward, in much the same way that a free food buffet is absorbed by various politicians after parliament shuts down for the day.

And we’ll miss that skewered eyeball.

ION Header Of The Week

Georgia-Harris

Beating out an actual pair of twins with pillows, Georgia Harris is your ION lady of the week. And yes, you probably are wishing that you could reincarnate as that chair in the same photo.

Most Comments

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, but everyone had something to say about Team Rize this week, now that the gang is disbanding.

Least Comments

Here’s another strange case of an article tracking very well and even being used by other sites, but garnering no real commentary whatsoever. Odd. Although I actually believe that may be because parents are still shocked that they’ll be paying for more Skylanders this year, instead of paying off the bond on their house.

Batman Of The Week

Batmern

Lazygamer is where I learned the truth about despair, as did the rest of us. There’s a reason why Batman Of The Week is the worst hell on Earth…hope. Every writer who has ventured here over the years has looked up to the light and imagined climbing to that position. So easy… So simple… And like shipwrecked men turning to sea water from uncontrollable thirst, many have died trying. I learned here that there can be no true despair without hope.

And that is why Geoff is your Batman of the week.

Header Image Of The Week

Have-a-break

Bugger everyone else, if I’m going out this week, I’m going to do so with tight jeans and a silly hairdo. This was a fun bit of photoshop, in relation to Need For Speed taking a break. On one hand, you’ve got the inevitable Kit-Kat joke. On the other, you’ve also got KIT. Two jokes in one meme!

Comment Of The Week

Bob The Zealot you beauty, well done. You get comment of the week, for this barb related to that Final Fantasy image of our dear president:

JZ is Cloud?! That explains why his memories of Nkandla are so messed up. Who knew?

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
