The best and worst of the last week – 22 August 2012

3 min read


Well will ya look at that? Another week has been kneecapped and left for dead in a shallow grave, meaning that we get to recap the highs and lows of the stories that we published this week, as well as giving someone a prestigious no-prize for comment of the week. And here we go!

The best header of the week this week goes to Nina James, based solely on the fact that she sported tattoos that actually worked as reverse chest magnets. She’ll soon be on Ripley’s Believe it or not, to explain how she to cast a level 67 black magic spell onto her ink, this Sunday.

Worst Story

Without a doubt, that dubious distinction goes to the entire set of stories regarding Cronje levels of match-fixing between teams in the Maingaming saga that ran this week, that was finally resolved.

Best Story

Assassin’s Creed 3, Borderlands 2 and a new Sim City are just some of the great games that will arrive soon. Well they can all go and suck a lemon, because there’s a new Plants vs Zombies game coming out from Popcap.

My body is ready…

Most Popular

When a gaming organisation gets accused of match-fixing and cheating, gamers round these parts don’t take too kindly to that, as evidenced by the dozens of comments wherein they told the guilty parties to GIT OUTTA HERE!

Least Popular

And once again, I’m the guy who has the least cared about story on the site, as my tale of The Witcher 2 developers, CDPR, releasing a toolkit to makes new games based on their Witchering tech, garnered only one sympathy comment from Erwinn Kempff, as Geoff cruised to a narrow victory with this 2 comment/cylinder Forza Horizon VIP story. 

Comment of the week

Are you a fan wrasslin’? Heck, it’s on a couple of times a week, it’s good versus evil and it has sweaty near-naked bodies for various genders and lifestyles to appreciate. It’s essentially a soap opera for men, but with far more chair-shots!

That being said, the annual game release from WWE makes more money than the guy who supplies breakable tables to the wrestling outfit, even though the formula is being milked harder than a Capcom branded cow, which prompted WeanerDog to submit a comment, as he re-imagined the game to make it infinitely more interesting:

They should do a WWE game in the style of LA Noire with the underlying “Soap Opera” as the narrative. Searching for clues as to who is the long lost uncle of the brother who’s dog once pissed on the undertakers boots. To get clues you need to wrestle other “superstars” and maybe I should slow down on the medication.

You keep chugging those pills down pal, that idea is freakin’ gold! Press X to accuse, press Y to slam through a flaming table!
