The good, the bad, and the ugly of the last week – 24 May 2013

Corgi of duty

What a week it’s been! I had to fly back into the country on Friday, enduring the terror of being upgraded to a seat that actually had legroom while the air cabin crew treated me like a human being for once. Terrifying stuff. When I got back, Geoff had begun talking to a beachball, Zoe refused to stop pronouncing aluminium as a-loo-moo-num and Gavin may have stolen a truck filled Jack Daniels whiskey. Which he then drank. All of it. Here’s what happened this week, when the king returned.

Best And Worst Story

I’m sorry Microsoft, but you really screwed the pooch on this one. I want to like the massive Betamax tape player that you’ve referred to as the Xbox One, but your launch for the device this week has been catastrophically bad.

It’s not too late though! There’s still plenty of time to fix things, and if you could do something that no hardware giant has ever done before, such as listen to the criticism about the console, then you couls still win back gamers.

We’ve mentioned some workarounds, and at the end of the day if you can make your consumers happy, then you’ll deserver some cash for the Xbox Highlander edition.

Just look at that innocent face on Tanya Vysotsky. Ain’t she adorable? Guys, I said the face, the face.

Most Comments

It’s a big year for gaming. And with the PS4 being announced earlier, Microsoft had to make a strong showing this year for their newly minted Xbox One console. Yeah, good luck with that. While the console looks like it has some pretty grand ideas, it also has a ton more crap ones.

And everyone had something to say about that. Also, IT WAS ME WHO WROTE IT! MOST COMMENTS AT LONG LAST! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Least Comments

It also gives me great pleasure to announce that Geoff, yes the Geoff received the least amount of comments this week. And considering that he’s nursing the mother of all headaches after several sleepless days and just impotent editing skills thanks to our overloaded server, I predict that he’ll soon be joining his indie hipster article in oblivion.

I’ll give it to Geoff, for his clever play on words. That no one seemed to get. Well done G-Tims.

Comment Of The Week

Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew, for your sterling devotion to Diablo 3, bacon and an inside joke, your comment was the bizness this week:

How many calories does screaming at the log in screen burn? 37?

You had me in tears man, tears.
