The good, the bad and the ugly of the last week – 5 April 2013

And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad. The dreams of playing Star Wars 1313 are the best we’ve ever had. I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take. When Disney shuts down LucasArts it’s a very, very mad world… MAD WORLD. And now that I’ve ruined the day for you by getting that song stuck in your head, here’s the weekly roundup.

Best Story

It’s been quite a grim week, bad news all round but there must have been some good news in there somewhere right? Right!? The best story of the week is a hard one to decide on. I’m stuck between Team S.A kicking ass in the Nations Cup and the best cosplay in the universe, ever. Ah what the hell! I’m giving this award to the amazing Tasha, with her super sexy Kerrigan cosplay.

Worst Story

Where to begin??? Like it wasn’t enough that Ubisoft wants to make a new Assassin’s Creed every year, Tomb Raider is looking like a commercial failure, the Xbox failing in Japan, the free SimCity DLC is rubbish and that Lucas Arts died, we have to find out that Comic-Con South Africa is a steaming pile of horse manure. Some one please give us a do-over for this week! The worst of the worst though, has to be the closure of LucasArts.

With only three of these to choose from, it’s made my job a lot easier. The ION header of the week is no doubt Sophie Howard.

Most Comments

AWW YEEAHHH! The Master Race has spoken! The most comments go to Garth’s review of the Razer Anansi MMO Keyboard with 117 comments. Or at least until Gavin walked away with 124 comments on his excellent piece on Comic Con SA being a sham.

Least Comments

Well, well, looks like I’m not taking this one this week. MUAHAHAH! I mean, (and I’m writing this with a very sad face) the least comments go to Gavin for his Gears of War: Judgement comp will be live streamed.

Batman of the week

Gavin showed some real journalistic skills putting together that Comic-Con article, and for that, he is Batman!

It was a close one between Geoff’s zebra finding himself with the unfortunate disposition of being eaten by lions and Gavin’s cat. The cat however just glided by shouting: Haters Gonna Haaaaaate!

Best Comment

Sad but true ladies and gents, Jim Lenoir takes the crown this week with his hard hitting words of truth.

Come on lads, let’s be honest here, when LAST did Lucasarts create a game that was (a) good and (b) worth your money? While it’s sad that star wars 1313 and the studio went the way of a rotting COD fish, Star Wars needs a kick in the creative pants. It desperately needed new blood, because after the last movies it was clear that George Lucas had lost his damn mind, and his bag of mojo.
