The good the bad and the ugly of the past week – 22 May 2015

Look at these wannabe cute cats

I haven’t eaten pizza all week, which I plan on overcompensating for over the next 60 hours. Mmmmm chicken and avocado… GET IN MY BELLY! Don’t expect me at work on Monday Geoff, unless you plan on sending a forklift to help me roll out of bed…

Best Stories

I knew it, Playing video games won’t give you Alzhiemers! Thank goodness, I’ve been questioning my memory lately. In other awesome news, Playing video games won’t give you Alzhiemers. Phew, glad we cleared that up.

What kind of weekly wrap doesn’t have a MOBA story? Not this one I tell you! If you’ve been unsure as to where to climb the MOBA train, I tell you, there is no better place to start than Heroes of the Storm. Blizzard’s brawler went into open beta this week, meaning it’s available for all.

Worst Stories

The Witcher 3 is finally out. YAY! It’s also been giving people some horrible bugs and crashes. BOO! You know what else sucks? The fact that we won’t be getting Silent Hills, something Guillermo Del Toro is sad about too.

If you have a significant other and you take gaming seriously, it may be time to end things. Apparently having a partner can affect your gaming performance negatively. Sigh… I guess it’s time to end things with my imaginary girlfriend. I knew this day would come!

Random Stories

I don’t care what anybody says, watching these people suffer the wrath of Dark Souls for the very first time was damn funny! DONTDIEDONTDIEDONTDIEDONTDIE!

Also, want a collector’s edition of Witcher 3? Message me, I’ll tell you exactly where Alessandro lives…

Ever worried about what to wear to your next big gaming expo? Don’t worry, Zoe has your back with this nifty apparel guide. If that doesn’t interest you, you could always take a selfie in World of Warcraft. Do it right, and you could find yourself attending Blizzcon later this year.

Header of the Week

Bah, it was a tough week! You lot can decide:

Darryn’s lot of nuts reference:

THATS-A-LOT-OF-NUTS

Geoff’s slightly AMD studios:

slightlyAMD

My toggle LoL pretty option on or off header:

Literally-LoL-right-now

Whose is the best?

ION of the Week

Freakazoi

No Geoff, I will not use soup as ION of the week, regardless of how delicious it is! I much prefer Darryn’s use of Freakazoid last week. Man I miss that show.

Most Comments

The Witcher 3 launched with some bugs, something that just had to be commented on 283 times. Damn you people talk a lot!

Least Comments

Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence is heading west in September. Who cares? Only three people it seems… sorry Darryn!

Batman of the Week

BATMAN AND MARIO

Geoff does it yet again. He’s won Batman so often that I literally have nothing to say right now. LITERALLY NOTHING!

Cabbage of the Week

Mr Bean

Urgh, I was hoping Zoe would be cabbage, seeing as she didn’t write every day this week. As luck would have it though, and because my writing really sucks, I’m the cabbage champion once again!

Comment of the Week

Hammersteyn you biscuit. Not only do you keep us supplied with daily upvotes, you gave us all a good chuckle with this comment on Geoff’s Alzheimer’s article too:

Maybe it does? Everyone seems to forget how average the previous COD was when they buy the new one…

Bonus Content

WTF?

And this too???

And this because WHY NOT?

      I remember something about that being mentioned a few months ago.
      There was surprisingly almost no outcry at that time.

        Now would be a good time to start publishing short videos, between 1 and ten seconds each, by every possible manner of person in the close vicinity and send them in, almost like an etoll boycott…They’ll be forced to watch each video and fill in the correct documentation to go with it, once they’ve done that, cancel and issue a new set of videos…the FPB will soon be withdrawing their policy…

          If I remember correctly, you first have to apply for a licence before you can send them anything to be assessed and only once you have the licence and the assessment has been completed can you then post the video.

          Of course you have to pay a licensing fee first.

            Well…then we apply, if you send in maybe 40 hours worth of video per day to a crew that is 2 people strong, the amount of film they’ll have to go through will grow exponentially, so the same principle goes on and on until, even while you are fitted with a license, it becomes unsustainable… the main reason they’re doing this, and please, I’m no conspiracy theorist, but it’s there to avoid accountability with regards to political agendas, simply put…Unfortunately we have a high level of incompetence in our regime, which is growing by the day…Anyway, on to better things like Za Weetchair Sree, Vild hand… Very good yes?

          I changed it to chair porn because, while it does probably exits, it is weirder and less common than lizard porn.
