According to my social media today, all that really mattered was the rain and load shedding. And the usual dose of drama and controversy surrounding games journalism. I guess I can go back to sleep now.

In Other News: Squeenix is a tease, Conan goes full Minecraft and Hurk Smash!

Here’s the news we didn’t post today because we were too busy constructing a discourse analysis on PewDiePie’s endorsement of Dying Light.

    Damn load shedding. If it worked the way it was supposed to I’d be going home early again today instead of still sitting here. :/

        Yeah maybe somebody can explain to me why he is so famous, i know what he does, but i don’t find him funny,neither is he a good reviewer as he doesn’t go in-depth into games,just yelling and noises and stuff,or am i missing something?

          he plays games on Youtube and yells a lot. Apparently that’s what counts as entertainment these days.

            I know,saw his videos and stuff,but still don’t get why he is the most famous.
            So basically people just go and watch him rant and now he is famous?

          • Hammersteyn

            January 28, 2015 at 16:35

            Yup. Same way Malema is famous. Boggles the mind

          • Spathi

            January 28, 2015 at 16:37

            The answer is easy. Pewdiepie and Malema are both famous because they are really entertaining to watch, in the exact same way it is entertaining to watch monkeys throw poo at each other. Sure, it’s only funny for 3 seconds max, but what an awesome 3 seconds they are!

            The more that time passes, the more I feel the movie “Idiocracy” was a premonition, not a fiction.

          • Spathi

            GO AWAY, ‘BATIN!!

            Idiocracy was a huge steaming pile of shit.

            Right up until this gem of a quote:

            “Rita: You think Einstein walked around thinkin’ everyone else was a bunch of dumb shits?
            Joe: Yeah, I hadn’t thought of that.
            Rita: You think that might be why he built that bomb?”.

            Those three lines completely redeemed that movie, & I laughed till I cried.

            Idiocracy is a lot like Little Britain for me. It wasn’t funny when I watched it, but afterwards I’m able to draw comparisons to real life situations, which made it funny for me.
