The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of the last week (7 March 2014)

Mona lisa early access

Wow, South Africa has not had a good week. Between non-stop rain in Joburg making our roads disintegrate and Eskom taking back their power due to “wet coal” I have been pretty cranky. Good thing I get to shoot things with a Titan soon, oh no wait…

Best Story

Rekindling that little bit of joy and optimism that we keep guarded in our cold, dead hearts, there is a glimmer of hope coming from the MSSA. Perhaps the new president really is willing to change things in the association; at least he’s reaching out to other people in the community.

Worst Story

Wow this was a bad week. So many stories that could be have been the worst. We had South Park not getting into Germany, layoffs and departures. However, there is no doubt about the worst story this week – Titanfall will not be coming to South Africa.

Best ION Header

Heather

I love a lady with some muscles and booby grabbing. Yup, this one is my winner.

Most Comments

What a surprise! You guys had a lot to say about Titanfall getting denied to South Africa. Local is seriously not so lekker at the moment.

Least Comments

Fine, guys, I can take a hint! I took this award for the first time this year. You guys just don’t care about getting free maps on Killzone Shadow Fall.

Batman of the Week

Batman swirl

Proving his perpetual awesomeness, Geoff grabbed Batman this week despite being without power for over five hours yesterday. That’s right, even in the dark, he is victorious – truly, our dark knight.

COD Ghostbusters

I’ve got to give it to Darryn for his awesome COD Ghostbusters header. Now, if only he’d shopped himself in with the guys…

Comment of the Week

Given the number of comments on the article, it’s not surprising our best one came from the Titanfall story, where oVg wins comment of the week with his genius:

New meaning to the term season pass lol WHAT SEASON DO I GET TO PLAY?

    Geoff is Batman! Also it’s good to have OVG back. Where does he always disappear to?

        I think I’ve spent too much time on this site.

    As a side note on that header – I refuse to buy early access, purely based on that alone. When the game’s done, I’ll pay you for it.

    Unless they ask you for say, 25% of the price, for 25% of the game. Actually no, not even then. Finish the shit, then I’ll pay for it.

      You have to be crazy stupid and maybe if one is lucky a gem might be found among the 600 comments of utter bullshit. πŸ˜›

    Great ION header that. I am still remaining a bit speechless because I will not be able to filter my mouth (or fingers?) if I have to speak (type?) my mind on that one! Yes, you guys usually only see the filtered version of my ION comments. http://24.media.tumblr.com/9c49bb7e79dd5aa5beeec4a33175d8b2/tumblr_mt3htnopwZ1si2ivho1_250.gif
