The good, the bad and the ugly of the last week – 28 June 2013

It was a cold day. Most of the Lazygamer staff had coccooned themselves too deep into their blankets, resulting in a situation where they were warm and comfy, but would have to eventually leave their fabric chrysalis for a toilet break. It was up to me to write the weekly wrap-up. But then again, I could always outsource the work to India yet again…

Best Story

None of the staff here wins this award this week. Instead, Llewellyn Crossley gets top honours, for thoughtful and well written column on the pros and cons of the Xbox One 180 turn. Well done man, some great reading there.

Worst Story

The fungus from The Last of Us is a real thing. This is a story that included a picture of a massive spider that had just been on the receiving end of a Cordyceps bukkake blast, and will haunt my dreams for years to come.

Felipe Bohorquez gets the nod this week. And if you’re wondering why she’s upside down, I did that just to mess with Erwin’s various theories about directional eye candy. Ha!

Most Comments

Playstation 4. Graphics. Measuring. If there’s one thing that you guys love, it’s got to be comparing the size of,er,stuff, Yeah, I’m going to back out slowly now. Put the tape measure away. Nothing to see here.

Least Comments

I’ve…got the least comments this week? For an article that has a kickass Superman action figure at sixth scale? But guys, c’mon! Look, his costume is based on the new mesh fabric used in the film, which is a complete departure from his newer look in the New 52 DC comics, and a big departure from his classic DC look with red underoos and…

Batman of the week


That honour goes to Geoff this week. And honestly, I have no problem with that. Because it means that everyone else isn’t Batman, and I’m not alone in my suffering. But I’ll be back in my top position, sooner or later.

Oh, you think the award is your ally, don’t you Geoff? But you merely adopted the Batman of the week; I was born in it, moulded by it. I didn’t see the award until I was already a man, and by then it was nothing to me but BLINDING!

Best Header Image


Seeing as how everyone else is dominating today, and I’m not freaking Batman, a fact that burns my ass, I’m taking this header award. Because this image for upcoming anime games truly is over 9000…bytes. Sorry about your bandwidth folks. No, no I’m not.

By now, you may have noticed that we can be a bunch of sarcastic bastards some days. No, reeeeeeeeeeeeeeally, we are. And I think we may have infected a bunch of you with our Stark sarc. And that’s why Trevor Davies is winning a no-prize today for this little em of a reply:

“You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.”

Exactly right, when a woman asks if those jeans make her look fat you lie & say no, if a man asks you lie & say yes. Completely different lies & therefore not abominable. Unlike the snowman, which is abominable.
