2 min read


Holy hell I’m glad it’s weekend. I’ve actually been pretty productive over the past few days, so I’m looking forward to a nice long stretch of doing absolutely nothing! What about you? What are your plans for this weekend? Something springy I’d imagine? Or the usual, indoors and playing ALL of the games?

Is Darryn Batman Forever?


Darryn took a day off this week, and he’s STILL Batman! It’s like he’s not even trying anymore.

Owlman of the Week


Owlman this week is… Craig Risi? WHAT! He wrote like, two articles or something. Damn this broken formula!

Headers of the Week

I couldn’t decide which header was better; the tried and tested Dawson cry face for no Mass Effect Trilogy remaster, or Darryn’s Metal Gear Solid V photoshop which promises a zefinitive experience. You be the judge!



Most Comments

If you ever want to get people talking, just mention Mass Effect. Geoff’s piece (which has since been updated) on EA killing hope for a trilogy remaster got a whopping 124 comments!

    Well done Craig!

    I’d congratulate the others, but it’s Darryn, and Matt’s writing this, so it’s Trevor.

    If Matt is so concerned with deleting why doesn’t he just Alt+F4 :/

      Because he might hit F5 by accident & summon Brock Lesnar.
