I like to think that here at Lazygamer, we’re more than just a South African site. Partly because our own government refuses to acknowledge that we even exist, after that incident with the Japanese Prime Minister. But we’ve got a pretty global audience, of kickass readers and miscreants who leave comments behind for Star Citizen referral codes.

Lately, we’ve also noticed a lot of Kenyan activity on the site. Activity from our African brothers and sisters who have clearly made a terrible choice in their daily fix of news, but we love ‘em anyway. So all to those readers from the quickest nation on the African continent Habari Gani from all of us here. And to the rest of the best continent IN THE WOOOORLD, hello as well! Just give me a second to Google what I need to say here…

In Other News: Firewatch sales are on fire, Battlefield Hardline prepares for betrayal, Street Fighter breaks EVO record like sparrow’s egg on mighty thighs and you’ve got a week left to play Darkspore.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because we were too busy feeling bitter about that sugar tax.

      Play something easier, like Candy Crush Saga or Solitaire.

        Candy Crush is for primary school kids and Solitaire is for government workers.
