The good, the bad and the ugly of the past week – 15 January 2016

3 min read


Hello weekend my old friend! You won’t believe the week I’ve had. I actually had to work every single day. WHAT A NIGHTMARE! How I miss those glorious half weeks…

Best Stories

What’s better than people playing games to raise money for charity? Nothing I tell you, which is why I consider Awesome Games Done Quick raising over $1.2 million for a good cause to be some of the best news I’ve seen all week.

In other awesome news, a Norwegian high school has introduced eSports into the curriculum. How cool? All I need now is a time machine so I can go back to my younger days.

In even more awesome news, ROBOT WARS! Surely you all remember this show? It’s coming back!

Worst Stories

The worst news this week isn’t actually gaming related, but definitely worth mentioning. Two legends, David Bowie and Alan Rickman, lost their lives to cancer, both at the age of 69. That damn disease can GITFS!

In other horrible news, a father received a bit of a shock when his credit card bill arrived. R88000 spent? On what? Oh nothing… just some casual FIFA microtransactions.

Random Stories

What console sees the most porn traffic? Don’t even pretend that you’ve never pondered over that question because, oh who am I kidding? Of course you haven’t – nobody has, but that hasn’t stopped PornHub from releasing some key statistics which contains the answer! Spoiler: PlayStation owners are a bunch of wan…


Hey Lightning, that’s a nice Luis Vuitton bag you have there. Please tell us more about it. Wait a second, you’re not even real!

Alessandro started streaming this week. His game of choice? Bloodborne, because he’s a sucker for punishment. Don’t worry if you missed it, because YouTube keeps a record of everything. To quote Al himself, “CRAP CRAP CRAP!”

Batman of the Week


Hey Darryn, nice haircut. Now if you could stop claiming Batman every week, that’d be great, thanks!

Header Image of the Week


Oh the simple genius that is Darryn. This image slapped onto the ‘PlayStation users watch more porn than Xbox One owners’ article is pure magic!

Most Comments

Which console sees the most porn? The PlayStation 4 it seems. That article was filled with some interesting stats, and grabbed a whopping 107 comments as a result. I’m glad I’m not the only one who wondered though – who the hell watches porn on a 3DS (and a Wii)?

Comment of the Week

Hey, maybe that kid who spent R88 000 on microtransactions in FIFA did it for a specific reason. Well spotted Konfab, I do believe you are onto something:

This guy made a donation to EA to ensure Mass Effect Andromeda is going to be good. Why the hate?

It all makes sense! There were many other great comments this week. I’d recommend checking out the PornHub statistics article for some additional giggles – there are far too many to put here!
