My kitty Lupin... AWWWWWWWW look at him all relaxed with nature and stuff

The 94.7 Cycle Challenge is finally here! I’m doing it for charity and I’m really looking forward to it. I did the race for the first time last year, clocking it in around 5h30m. People keep asking me if I’m aiming for sub 5 this time around… the answer is a simple no. I’m perfectly happy just surviving and finishing the damn thing! If you don’t see me on Monday, tell my imaginary girlfriend I always loved her the most <3

Best Stories

Blizzcon took place last weekend. The new StarCraft II expansion, Legacy of the Void, has finally been unveiled… HOORAY! They also announced a completely new IP, which I hope turns out to be really awesome. In other announcements, Just Cause 3 is official, causing Darryn to mouth off in a headline. What a potty mouth! GTA and work ethic be damned, let’s go cause some F***ing chaos via parachute and grapple!

If it’s one thing I knew way before my time as an intern, it’s that everybody at Lazygamer has the biggest love for Kingdom Rush. When everybody found out there was a new game on the way, work promptly stopped so gratuitous, thankful backflips could take place.

Worst Stories

Come on CoD, all people want to do is have a lag-free experience. The last thing the game needs is a silly exploit which ruins the match for those who AREN’T behind an impenetrable glass wall. Are you excited for Bloodborne? It’s coming soon… actually, no it isn’t. It’s all YOUR fault that it has been delayed by a month. I HOPE YOU’RE HAPPY!

There’s also this Jim Sterling story which is just WTF. You can read it right here.

Random Stories

I don’t care what you all say, the fact that there is a new Tony Hawk game in the works makes me feel like I am back in 1999. Grinding, face planting, MORE GRINDING… my body is ready!

This Halo plasma rifle is real up to the point where you learn it doesn’t actually fire. I am so sad, I know a good few people I could’ve used it on. Still, if you have some extra cash lying around, this memorabilia is super sexy.

Assassins Creed Unity looks good dunnit? Just check out these rad glitches! Wait a second…

Best ION Header


You won’t believe how much flak I get for always choosing food as the ION Header of the week. I really don’t think any of you will disagree with this though. Let’s be honest, Bacon > EVERYTHING!

Most Comments

Gavin sat us down with cups of hot cocoa and shared the history of Lazygamer. This resulted in, at time of writing, 320 comments! Damn people, why do you love us so? Oh who cares, GROUP HUG!

Least Comments

I am super excited for Telltale’s Game of Thrones game. Apparently nobody else is, which is why I have a measly 3 comments on this article. Come on people, at least click and comment on your appreciation for the Joffrey slap-looping video!

Batman Of The Week


It was neck and neck this week, fo rizzles! After many hours of dance-offs, juggling, and yodelling, we determined that Geoff is Batman… what a free-styling king!

Cabbage Of The Week

Cabbage patch doll... WHY ME... WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

It was so nice being off cabbage duty. It gave me time to contemplate life, gaming, vegetables, women, Geoff’s desire to destroy my existence, and insane 36-month long gym contracts. I’m back though, ready to manage that patch!

Header Image Of The Week


Geoff’s Photoshop tomfoolery had me giggling and feeling violated at the same time. Why does CoD man have his mouth so wide open? EWWWWW! It made me think of this…


Comments Of The Week

There were so many good comments this week, so many of them! This one made me laugh the hardest though. Zoe told us about her qualifications in the comment section, which gave Mark Vincer the perfect opportunity to throw this beauty

Where did you study PhotoShop?

Geoff’s comment on his long lost moustache also made me giggle…

I shaved it off, and it took a sentience of its own. It’s now called Matthew.

I had no idea. MY LIFE IS A LIE!

Bonus Premium Content

Hey, are you a regular reader? Are you here for the first time? It doesn’t matter who you are, we have all sorts of bonus content to make you question your very sanity! I don’t know where the hell Darryn scrounged up this video…

Seeing as I am doing the 94.7 Cycle Challenge on Sunday, I ordered myself several cases of POWERTHIRST. I will be done in 10 minutes.
