In Other News – 24 April 2015

1 min read


So last night, I was feeling pretty smug about going to go see Avengers: Age Of Ultron. And then my karma realigned after it remembered that in a previous life I had been responsible for inventing sitcom laugh tracks. So thanks for the load-shedding Eskom! I’ve got a rebooked ticket for this evening to go watch Avengers: Part Deux. And I swear, if the power cuts out again, Eskom will be invited to a special screening of There Will Be Blood.

In Other News: I spot a Witcher on TV, Elite: Dangerous adds a powerplay, Dirty Bomb unveils a Nader, be a dungeon master on Steam and Spider-Man is still spectacular.

Here’s the news we didn’t post today, because I was too busy getting an election from all this UK talk about voting.

        I said I was sorry. Geoff was 100% right for calling me out on that, I was out of line. So yes, I was a bit of a cunt. I’m sorry. :/

    Lazygamer being less sexist by replacing the Friday ION with a picture of actors who called Black Widow a slut because she decided to have more than sexual partner.

      The decision to replace the sexy ladies was actually forced on us by google who decided they should impose their morals on any site that uses their advertising.

      They’ve always said no to nudity but in recent months they have now started cracking down on any form of sexiness sending me warning letters for ladies in bikini’s or lingerie.

      If I didn’t have to pay salaries and legal fee’s I’d tell them to get stuffed but unfortunately this place is now bigger than me.

        So they crack down on so many things but can’t guarantee spam free advertising? (refresh)
