We’re coming up on expo season here in Joburg. There are a bunch of cool ones at The Dome and Gallagher Estates. In fact, I will be attending Sexpo soon, as press. Sometimes I wonder how I ended up with this job…

As much as our ION image is a tall glass of nope for me (I have zero desire to put a hot curling iron next to my eyeball), I understand that it’s our very own JJ’s birthday today. So here’s a tool to help when applying all that eyeliner.

In other news: Quake gets Steamy, Destiny’s raids take ages and Goat Simulator comes to a tablet near you.

Here’s all the news we didn’t post today because we were too busy distinguishing between fans, fanboys and fanatics.

    If Obi-Wan Kenobi gets his own movie then Qui-Gon Jinn has to be in it as well, oh please let Liam Neeson reprise his role.

      That’s insane! Not a single WoW raid takes that long… unless if you’re absolutely SHITE at the game.

      Think that might not be actual time taken, but rather how long the event was open for before completion (would be equal if they played non-stop :D).
