The good, the bad and the ugly of the last week – 18 October 2013

You want to know what I’m doing right now? I’m catching very specific pokemon. And naming them after the Lazygamer gang. Here’s my Geoff, Gavin and Zoe so far. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to run for my life.

Best Story

We’re moving to a digital age of gaming, and that means that we’re going to be saying farewell to physical copies of our favourite franchises. There’s a bunch of pros and cons for this future, which Stephen took a great look at this week.

Worst Story

It’s a smart move by Ubisoft, but it’s one that is no doubt stinging quite a few sandbox fans as Watch Dogs has been delayed. And to think, I wasted all that time hacking Zoe’s phone in real life in preparation for this game.

Best ION Header

Susan-Coffey

If it was up to me, I’d use Susan Coffey header images every single day when I close shop. And I think you guys would approve of that as well.

Most Comments

Geoff wins the DURH award this week for correctly surmising that the Xbox 360 is more popular in AMerica than the Playstation 3, for his 236 comment piece.

Least Comments

Only three comments on my BDSM Saints Row 4 story? I’m guessing that’s because most of you were…tied up.

Batman Of The Week

6436530_700b

Despite a last minute push in which I kicked all kinds of ass thanks to Pokémon, I failed. Right now, Gavin is still sitting on his custom Batman throne, which he bought with bribe money from our recent upcoming 11/10 review for Call of Duty: Ghosts and oh crap I wasn’t supposed to mention that.

Header Image Of The Week

Mario

For all the wrong, wrong, very wrong reasons, I reckon that I win header image of the week.

Comment Of The Week

I’m giving the award to Kyou or whatever the hell handle he has right now, because watching him explode every single week is pretty much the driving force behind my Pokémon articles. If there’s Pokémon story up, there’s a Kyou pearl of wisdom:

FUCKING FANBOYS GOT FUCKING BUTTHURT OVER A FUCKING COMMENT BECAUSE I SAID POKEMON X AND Y SUCKS!? IT’S TRUE!!! IT DOES SUCK!!! MEGA EVOLUTIONS DOES SUCK!!! THEY LOOK FUCKING HORRIBLE AS HELL!!!

Neither Master Kyou or Crazy was brainwashed by anyone in any other way. They have minds of their own. They are not same person you know. Just for the record, I’ve never bought Pokemon Black and White or Pokemon Black and White 2 because they’re just not great! I had to stick to play Pokemon Crystal at the time because I never cared about the BW series. Hell, Pokemon X and Y doesn’t even interest me at all, I mean, it’s just terrible……

        GEOFF.

        Psyduck is a yellow Pokémon that resembles a duck or bipedal platypus. Three tufts of black hair grow on top of its head, and it has a wide, flat, cream-colored beak and vacant eyes. Its legs, arms, and tail are stubby and its webbed feet are cream-colored. There are three claws on both of its hands.

        Psyduck is constantly stunned by its headache and is unable to think very clearly. It usually stands immobile, trying to calm its headache. However, when its headache becomes too severe, it releases tension in the form of strong psychic powers. The use of these powers produces brain waves identical to those seen in sleepers, and the Pokémon is unable to recall these episodes. Psyduck lives in freshwater lakes, small ponds, or rivers in tropical areas.

      We exiled him to Guatamala, because he was in fact… FOXHOUND R.

      But that’s not the worst part….

      We also discovered that he had a hidden box filled with Call of Duty games. We had to schedule an intervention.

      It was brutal. There was so much crying. No mother should ever have to see their child become a CODfishead… No mother…. 🙁 Rather a tikhead than a FISHHEAD!

      I wish I could have done something… I wish I could have been a proper friend and stopped him from becoming a smelly Fishhead. But I failed. I FAILED THE ADMIRAL!!!!!!

      You will always be my buddy…. buddy… KIFFLOM BROTHER BROTHER!

        That is indeed sad to hear. Who would’ve thought. The admiral; a codboy.
        We’ve all failed the admiral, instead of going to him to help him out we swam away like intelligent fish AI.

          It does make sense in hindsight. Admiral is a naval rank, and navies operate in water, as do Codfish. Why didn’t we see it earlier?

            I believe this informative video would explain my standpoint to the whole PS4 vs Xbone debate:

            “XBOX ONE!! DAY- NUMERO UNO!!!!!!!”… Only if you live in the regions where day one releases are scheduled. I however can upgrade or buy a new PC at any given point.

            And on another point, I do not hunch over while gaming as I know that it could cause back problems later in life. But thanks for pointing out the health risks.

    Uh, Mr.Darryn, about this “Comment of the Week” thingy, you got it all wrong dude! His name is Crazy! He just hates Mega Evolutions because says that’s MEGAGAY! And I agree with him. Kyou did not make that comment, Crazy did. Don’t mention Kyou’s name! That could be a big mistake! You hear me!? Kyou has nothing do with this! Crazy is NOT same person dude!! Didn’t you look at Crazy’s name!?
