Of course.

Nite Owl of the Week

Nite Owl

I came so close to being Nite Owl this week. SO CLOSE. Unfortunately, the honour was snapped up by Darryn, who just doesn’t seem to be content with being Batman basically ALL of the time.

Header of the Week


Darryn has brought back his ‘Where is Xur’ series thanks to Destiny: Rise of Iron, and with it, one of the best headers I’ve ever seen in my lifetime. Amazing!

Most Comments

The article with the most comments this week was yesterday’s ION funnily enough. You all had lots to say about… I don’t know what exactly.

Comment of the Week

Apparently Star Citizen is the “best damn everything sim”. When is it coming out though? Ottokie hit the nail on the head:

I was thinking of maybe backing the game so my children’s children can try it out on release day.

Wow, that sure is far away!

Bonus Premium Content

I’m sorry, but I simply MUST leave this here…

And this…

AND this…

  1. I see what you mean about the comments.

    But Matty, those are how the comments always look. On topic? Not even once!

    Yeah, I watched that PPAP video this morning. You know when something is so bad you keep watching? Or when something is so bad you start feeling bad physically?

    Anyway, it’s stuck in my head now.

    Geoff what is it with Asian girls’s fascination with this song?

      Well it’s Friday. A good day to be introduced to this crap.

      Because I can drink tonight and I can blame it on the day, rather than the loss of hope in humanity.
