The good, the bad, and the ugly of the last week (15 February 2013)

2 min read

Thank the gods it’s Friday! Geoff and I had a wonderful week after shipping Darryn off to North Korea on a cargo plain and selling Gavin on the Capetonian black market. The only thing left to do now is revel in our victory, check out the best and worst of this week.

Best Story

There were no best stories this week, you get nothing! Good day sir!

Worst Story

I don’t know which is worse, Aliens: Colonial Marines being sold on lies or Next Gen not likely to be backwards compatible. It’s like gamers just don’t matter anymore, if we aren’t being sold a pile of steaming horse poop concealed in some pretty wrapping and shiny advertising, we’re being given the finger with next-gen consoles on the horizon.

Best ION Header


Even though Little Caprice looks a tiny bit uncomfortable in that position, she’s the best ION lady of the week. I don’t really know what else to say here, this isn’t weird okay!

Most Comments

In the eyes of the Master Geoff, this week is a hollow victory, but it’s a victory none-the-less. He takes the most comments award this week with “Next gen” no better than Crysis 3 with 66 comments, close runner up being his review of that “clichéd, stereotypical bravado-laden, gung-ho corridor shooter that’s mildly fun but never engaging”, Aliens: Colonial Marines.

Least Comments

Who wants to play Ghost Assassin Recon Creed Online? No one apparently! With only one comment, Darryn takes this spot. I’m just disappointed I couldn’t hand him the award myself, in person. Give him a pair of Lazygamer underpants for coming in last place. Because god knows he needs them.

Batman of the week

It’s a pretty dismal day for Geoff; he once again takes a hollow victory. Being batman this week means less to him than online multiplayer games.

Best Header Image SuperBru Pool Captain, Admiral Chief Erwin SuperBru Pool Captain, Admiral Chief Erwin

I’m just going to go ahead and say that my Photoshop skills of awesome produced the best header image the world has ever seen. Super Erwin is the personification of SuperBru perfection and  hair as amazing as stroking a unicorn’s mane.

Best Comment

Truer words have never been spoken. Lardus says what we were all thinking looking at that header image of the Aliens guy and the Xenomorph.

The guy in the header looks more constipated than full of fear. Is that the look they were going for? I believe the Xenomorph is just politely asking him to give a courtesy flush!

    Its been a while since I featured in the best/worst article.

    That header is uber funnay, well done Yolanda, you got me good!

    Also, did I start a meme with the Lags Underpants? 😛

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

      Hey Captain Superbru! I was only 1 point out with my first pick! Woot!

      • Admiral Chief Erwin

        Effing useless Force. No discipline, and not even able to catch own lineouts!

        • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

          And thus the student surpasses the master [insert evil laugh here]

          • Admiral Chief Erwin

            Not by a longshot Padawan.
            Remember, the season in long and hard. You might just be Underpants-man…

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            Never! Besides, you don’t want me to be underpants man. The entire Lags site doesn’t want me to be. Just trust me on this

          • CaptainNemo42

            They used to say the Currie Cup isn’t won in May, or June, or July, or … Well I think you get my point.

            Same rule apply to this.

        • Twakkie

          Ja it was ridiculous. After the first 15 I thought the Force had the game and suddenly the Rebels rebelled. I actually thought the Force played better with 13 men on the field than with the whole team. And freaken Godwin losing 7 points in kicks, useless. Still a tense game though. Lets hope the Brumbies plays better tomorrow.

  • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    Lol @ erWIN header 🙂

  • FoxOneZA

    It’s been a horrible weak for me and Gavin personally. Both us were victims of crime. His situation far worse 🙁 Here’s hoping next week is better.

    • Sir Captain Rincethis

      Shame. Hope you are alright!

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

      Sucks to hear man. Hope things get better soon (for the both of ya)

    • FoxOneZA

      I’m fine but just the trauma having to see someone has gone through your stuffs. These criminals are just after small valuables that they can fit in their pockets.

      • Admiral Chief Erwin

        Vuil bliksems. I know they will get what is coming to them!

    • Lardus

      Someone actually made 12 fraudulent transaction on my “emergence” credit card, totalling R11066! Crime SUCKS! At least I unseated the reigning “best comment” champion!

      • FoxOneZA

        Whoah! These guys are damn brave and greedy at the same time.

        LOL, You are champion until next week 😉

    • Andre116

      Sucks man. Happened to me end of last year. Hope things return to normal soon.

  • NO! Heeeeeeeeeeeeere’s Cookie! should have won!

  • Banana Jim

    What is it about fishnet stockings…? I mean… Let’s just put this Caprice picture in the ol’ Jimmy folder… uhm…

    • Admiral Chief Erwin


  • “You get nothing! Good day sir!” – Axe!!! 😛

    I <3 you Yolanda. I don't know if that was intentional or not but hey I'll take it as a Dota Quote XD
