DAWWWW

I don’t know why, but every time we get to this time of the year, everything seems to speed up tenfold. The weeks are now going to fly, and before we know it, the year is going to be done and dusted. Could everything slow done just a little, please?

Nite Owl of the Week

Nite Owl

Of course Darryn isn’t satisfied with fulfilling the role of just one caped crusader. He’s gone ahead and snagged up the Nite Owl suit too!

Header of the Week

skyrimyear

Hey, you ever heard of Skyrim? It’s this new game coming to PC (here are the required specs), and hang on a second. WHAT YEAR IS IT? Good job, Geoff.

Most Comments

Has Overwatch died in South Africa? Kyle wrote a second article with a community update, and it got you all talking. That piece garnered a respectable 56 comments.

Comment of the Week

An tweet surfaced this week that suggests that Nintendo’s next console is called the Duo. If that turns out to be true, well, Archdruid Kromas noticed an interesting pattern:

Xbox One
Nintendo Duo

PS4

Looks like Valve is not the only one who does not count to 3 anymore. 😛

Edit: HL3 Confirmed!

MIND. BLOWN.

  1. So I just read that graffiti story for CS:GO. And people still stubbornly refuse to see what Valve has become? Valve stopped caring many years ago.

      The only big game developer that does seem to care these days is CD Projekt Red.

    Someone needs to put a stop to Darryn’s dastardly ways! We need a new BATMAN!

            Hate it when that happens, people stop gaming for the very same reason

            Yeah, life, work and money… the three factors that can cause any gamer to stop playing or being active on a community

          The site was down and was difficult to access for a period of weeks near the start of the year. I noted that after that the comments were WAAAAAAYYY down after that

    Comment of the week, no offence to Kromas, but I thought Hammer’s comment on the Jewish Superman thing was awesome.
