The good, the bad and the ugly of the last week – 04 July 2014

They have an army, we have a Hulk of a weekly wrap post! WEEKY WRAP SMASH PUNY GOD!

Best Story

New blood! Bugger the gaming news, I’m just happy that we have some new faces on our staff, who will no doubt come in handy when we need to hide various illegal substances in the nearest orifice that we can trust. You’ve said hi once, but please give another rousing greeting to our latest Lazygamer members Figgy Stardust and You Can Call Me Al!

Worst Story

The industry is changing you guys, and you need to change with it! That’s pretty much what EA’s Peter Moore has to say about various complaints, as people are like totally taking this idea of gamers being nickle and dimed out of all their cash for game content that should be included with the final product, instead of having to cough up extra for it. Like totally you guys.

Best ION Header


I don’t care what anyone says, beardy and beefy Misty is the best cosplay I’ve seen this entire year so far.

Most Comments

Matty gets the scoop to the nootch award this week for his breaking news on the MSSA no longer being affiliated with our national sporting body SASCOC. 199 comments in total, with the general attitude in that section being summed up as follows:

Least Comments

Welcome to the least popular award in the office Matty. Your post on The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 4 release date managed to equal the amount of frigs I give for the game. In other words, zero. Look at all the frigs I give Anakin! Look at them!

Batman Of The Week

Bane Cosby

I quite honestly don’t know how Geoff keeps on doing this. I’ve gone two months now without a Batman award to my name, and I might just have to hand him my cowl, cape and rubber armour that really seals in the flavour after a hard day of crime-fighting.

Header Image Of The Week


Now that I am once again in possession of a PC that doesn’t chug along like a train that runs on manure, I am once again free to terrorise the interwebs with horrible puns and poorly cropped edges. I’m so freakin’ happy right now.

Comment Of The Week

Clearly, we have some wrestling fans amongst the millions…and millions of Lazygamer readers here. John Cena is the cover star of WWE 2K15, and that’s a name that many a practicing doctor of Thuganomics is more than well aware of. Although some of you might not be able to glimpse him on the cover, as Alien Emperor Trevor summed it up so perfectly:

How many people won’t pick up the game simply because they don’t see it.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Very well deserved trev!

  • Sir Rants A Lot Llew. Jelly!!!

    Welcome to the newbies and GG Trev

      Agreed, it’s rigged man. They know his want for acknowledgement, and so ‘panda’ to it….

      • Rince&pop

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          haha. I have a very mean response for that 😉

          • Rince&pop

            And I had a very good response for that obvious mean 😛

          • oVg… what castle?

            Does it involve a certain colour 🙂

          • Rince&pop

            Yeah, cus that hasn’t been done to death 😛

          • oVg… what castle?

          • Rince&pop


          • oVg… what castle?

          • WhiteRock


          • Sageville

            I thought Bike…

          • Sith JJ

            Instant vipaka

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Actually it didn’t, but it did make me think… do colour blind gingers understand what’s wrong with them? *RUNNNNNNNNNNN*

          • Rince&pop

            Shame man, that’s Low! Also, shhh, if they find out OVG works as a DTP operator he may be in trouble 😛

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            What? He is? Damn, my bad. I owe oVg a beer.

          • Rince&pop

            He is like grade 5 colourblind 😉 So is Will.

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      Hehehe they should just rename it “The Trevor of the Week!” 😛

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        I support that notion completely!

    • Sageville


      • oVg… what castle?

        More like trying to tie shoelace face:P

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          He just found out The Rock peed in his Fruit Pebbles.

  • Lourens Jordaan

    Regarding the worst story….. #DealWithIt

  • Rince&pop

    Nice one Trev 😉

  • Best header, imo…and not just because I made it. ;P

    • Rince&pop


    • The weekly wrap has no notion of this thing that you call “democracy” or “talent”.

    • oVg… what castle?

      Best hair.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Looks like a marino sheep *cough*

  • Lardus-Resident Perve

    Nice one Emperor!

  • Sageville

    I like seeing the LG family expanding, it smells of success… or Darryn’s Batsuit.

    Also, seriously, any MSSA article is low hanging fruit for max comments.

  • VampyreSquirrel

    Well done Trev and Geoff (again)… feels like I said something similar to that recently…

  • Sith JJ

    Ha. Cool.
    My gf has a dragonborn pendant like that.
