The good the bad and the ugly of the past week – 15 May 2015

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

Weekend YEEEEEEEEEEAH! It’s time to kick back, relax, and get lost in some good ol’ fashioned gaming goodness. I will be spending the next 2.5 days catching up on two weeks worth of lost Dota. Can it be done? Yes, yes it can, but enough about me, let’s talk about you. What are your plans for the weekend?

Best Stories

The Witcher 3 has been hyped up far beyond any other game in recent times and you know what? It looks like it will live up to its name. I consider that good news dammit!

There was a lot of negativity surrounding rAge’s newly designed Roxy. NAG listened to what people had to say, took the criticism to heart, and gave their leading lady an altered and arguably better look. The new design may not hit all the right notes with some people, but hey, hats off to NAG for listening to the community’s feedback and doing something about it. Even if it didn’t really, really do anything.

Worst Stories

It’s never nice to hear about a game getting canned, which is exactly what happened to The Black Glove. The ex-Bioshock developers put a lot of time into the project, they just never had the time or resources to see it through to completion. Thankfully it hasn’t been written off completely. It has simply been shelved.

Dammit, The Division looks fantastic, but I don’t see any of us playing it anytime soon. It keeps getting delayed, again and again.

Random Stories

TEAM D TEAM D TEAM D!

This story isn’t random. It’s the video that goes with it that is. Oh Reggie, you make me giggle!

Most Comments

Wow, the Playstation 4 got hacked? Let’s all talk about it LOTS! Yeah that’s what all of you had in mind it seemed. The article racked in a whopping 316 comments!

Least Comments

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition got outed by Brazilians? NOBODY CARES GEOFF, except those 4 people who commented.

Batman of the Week

WTF

Look at Geoff’s evil smile. He is the caped crusader this week, beating out the rest of us just as the caped crusader beats the crime outta Gotham!

Cabbage of the Week

Well, no surprises here really. I’m back in full force, filling the cabbage role as best I can!

This image from Darryn has me giggling constantly. I wish I owned a Yoshimitsubishi!

Comment of the Week

Honestly, I’m still jetlagged and I didn’t have much time to go through comments this week. There were a TON of them! If I had to choose though, I’d have to say that all the googly eye comments on Darryn’s Uncharted article made me giggle the most. LOOK AT THEM RIGHT THIS SECOND AND BE ENTERTAINED!

Bonus Content

Darryn has some amazing editing skills. Just look at how he improved this advert!

            My ex boss, previous MD, would, on days off or away, call the office at 17:00 to see who was there. I did not like that. Treat my like an adult, I treat you like an adult.

            I am, however, seeing with some of the more junior / young staff that treating them like adults does not work out very well. perhaps this is the cycle?

            Yes, but were we any better? According to the guy who heads my support team, yes, we were. He says the school system they had and our school system was different (we did not do OBE), and he thinks that makes the difference. We could think a bit and it seems the younger ones struggle a bit with that.

            We’re actually two different companies, but with the same parent company, at our offices.

            My side started & finished a whole 15 minutes earlier than the other, which they always complained was “unfair” because “why do they get to leave 15 min earlier?” and led to snide remarks like “are you working overtime” or “what are you still doing here” if some of us were still here between the time we closed & they did.

            They changed it not too long ago so that their hours matched ours. Nearly every day we leave as per our norm, that side has already closed up & disappeared. We’re not leaving early… so how does that work? Bit of a joke really.

          I tend to work most nights anyway, so I could give a crap how much or how little I comment.

          My work is important to me, a great sense of satisfaction can be gotten from it. I work on projects, in some ways, too big for our small company. I like that challenge. And, of course, pulling it off means more money all round.

            It is great to have work satisfaction. Many can’t get this, which is sad, because we have to spend so much of our time at work. Working in a small company that does big projects does indeed present some interesting challenges. Allows one to often get exposed to more diverse working scenarios which makes things interesting and keeps you on your toes.

            In general work experience and real world knowledge beats the piece of paper (qualifications) hands down. Pity that this seems to becoming less and less the main way of thinking though. Not saying looking at qualifications isn’t important, just that it sometimes ignores the person with good work experience.

          Also, a lot of the comments are made by IT people. I know I can flip in, look for 30 seconds, bash out a comment and leave. IT people are typically quite fast at switching between screens and stuff and just navigate the computer faster, which also helps. Engineers as well, of course.

      Especially after you made a special request earlier in the week for a particular comment to be the pick of the week. I can’t be bothered to go find it though.

        Lol. I don’t even care about that. But there were so many good comments this week. I just think that 50% of the comments here deserved better than to submit to googly eyes. XD

    Where the hell do you record so many people puking at the same time? And then make a song out of it? That is though, the best Head and Shoulders ad I’ve seen in years, the voice overs fit better than that of the original voice over…

        No, no, no. And I say this with great sorrow, B.B. King has passed away, the one person that could provoke every possible emotion on the planet in a single note, has moved on, a seven decade journey of pleasing blues soul…

        Edit: That^^ is music…

            Well, no, he was one of the greatest touring guitarists the world had ever seen, an inspiration to guys like Jimi Hendriks, SRV, Dimebag Darryl from Pantera, Joe Satriani, Mark Trimonti, Steve Vai, Eddie Van Halen, Slash, etc. a great man really, such a loss… But yes, he was one of the guys that laid the foundations for modern day popular music, that includes all shades of metal as well…

    Apart from Konami throwing themselves into the sea, it hasn’t been a bad year so far.
