The good the bad and the ugly of the past week – 24 April 2015

3 min read

Awwww look how cute she is. I get to take her home in a few more weeks!

Seriously weather, make up your goddam mind! You’re hot, cold, rainy, sunny, overcast, and windy… all on the same day. I’m tired of klapping attire that sits somewhere between Eskimo and Durban beach bum, wearing shorts with a jacket just in case, and eating ice-cream with a warm cup of coffee to bring balance to the force. PICK A SEASON DAMMIT!

Best Stories

Hey Nintendo naysayers, what’s this? Oh, just a piece on how their market cap has doubled. YAY MARIO! In case you missed it, here’s a roundup explaining how the battle of the century formulated. GO #TEAMD! There’s also a story on building your very own BB-8 droid which I think is totally awesome. I would totally build my own if I had the knowhow.

Worst Stories

Whaaaat? Borderlands creator Matt Armstrong has left Gearbox? Noooooooooooo! I hope this doesn’t negatively affect any future Borderlands sequels. In other bad news, Geoff had to review Music on: Electric Guitar. What makes this bad you ask? Well,  he scored it 3.5… ouch!

Random Stories

This week has a TON of randomness! Prison life is hard, especially when access to a NES is denied, Destiny has a REALLY dedicated player, and Marvel goes up against DC in an epic battle for Comic Con. Oh, and let’s not forget all about solving the mystery of love

Best ION Header


Sorry readers, I HAVE to call this as the best ION this week. I saw this magnificent screen with my own eyes on Wednesday evening. It really displays some gorgeous picture! Too bad it will cost you an arm and a leg…

Most Comments

Gah, this TV is SO PRETTY ME EYES SING WHEN THEY GAZE UPON IT! The price is equally eye melting though. Anyhow, it spawned a ton of comments from all of you – 136 for that matter.

Least Comments

Hey Darryn, nobody cares about your fancy new screenshots… except for those three people who commented!

Batman of the Week


Batman is so close at time of writing… so so so close! Zoe is in the lead however, so I’m letting her fly away as Batgirl this week!

Cabbage of the Week

Look at Geoff laughing at poor Sandy

Do you think I care that Sandy has been away for most of the week? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA no. He is at right at the bottom this week, the poor sod.

Header of the Week

Well, I feel like we all had some great headers this week… so we all win!





Zoe (no this image is NOT still loading)


Me (hey Geoff actually voted for this!)


Comment of the Week

There were some real goodies this week. My first favourite comes from Zoe’s article on Xbox apologising for using Witcher footage. Many thought their net was acting up due to the header image, including poor Skoobaz:

F me, I was waiting for the image to load for 20 seconds! Then it dawned on me. I can be a silly bastard @ times

Another series of giggles spawned from our coverage of the expensive new Samsung’s SUHD TV. Everybody seemed to notice that  the two people in the header were not actually looking at the TV, or each other. HvR explains why:

Wife pissed that he bought it, he worrying on how he is going to pay it off #HonestAd

Bonus Content

Darryn has been assaulting us with evil Ronald McDonalds videos all week. Here’s his latest choice of WTF:

This week, I found out about Who Killed Captain Alex. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed this hard in my life. Seriously, fast forward to any action scene and enjoy!

If you want specifics, check out 35:17 and 42:45. You can thank me later!

      It’s a whirlwind ride, super ultra fame then Ultra crushing depression and eventually turning into a @HvR:disqus

      So sad…..

        April 24, 2015 at 15:13

        @Hvr just has to go and try steal some of my glory. Even as I’m commenting I feel the crushing depression developing. For the love of good games man, Help me!

          Our support group meets on wednesday, bring your own cookies….

          Also why does “wednesday” always look wrong.

            Because being a linguist isn’t a real job.

        April 24, 2015 at 16:37

        Not until 5:00PM and even then I’m going to crawl into bed and sleep until 10:00PM or so.

    I also have some good news, those millions of Social Club accounts that were stolen a while back,well, now has one less account that was stolen…

    P.S. Even though it took 5 days, four emails, one tweet and one really douchy tweet, which I still feel bad about….


    • ReaperOfSquirrels

      April 24, 2015 at 14:39

      That sucks… mine was safe and sound.


      • Greylingad

        April 24, 2015 at 14:43

        I still feel like a complete douche for having to go to such lengths to get some form of feedback, but at least the the support personnel had a good laugh with me afterwards…


        • ReaperOfSquirrels

          April 24, 2015 at 14:53

          At least it’s sorted. The Rockstar support is normally really good, but they must have been busy as hell.

    Geoff’s Tasty Tuesday header was better (and tasted yummy)

    I honestly thought my Ven Diagram comment would be a sure winner 🙁 Gratz though


    • hairyknees

      April 24, 2015 at 16:26

      Where was that? I missed it 🙁


      • HvR

        April 24, 2015 at 17:18

        The article of the about “asshole 180” Phil from MS is creating his own company with MS secret sauce.


      • Ranting Raptor

        April 27, 2015 at 12:20

        SInce it’s a MOnday and public holiday I am too lazy to go searching for Zoe’s Phil Spencer, Phil Harris and Microsoft article hehe.


    • HvR

      April 24, 2015 at 17:17

      That was brilliant, but it seems comment of the week with a picture doesn’t qualify.


      • Ranting Raptor

        April 27, 2015 at 12:21

        Aw boo. Guess I shall try again this week to come
