The good the bad and the ugly of the past week (30 January 2015)

What’s that you say? You miss Matty because he was better at the weekly wrap than me or Darryn? Well too bad! You’re stuck with us. Also, we miss him too.

Best Story

So much good news this week! PlayStation Plus games for February are really good (Transistor is amazing and got an award from us for 2014), and Evolve’s P2P will actually work pretty well for local gamers who moan about no local servers. Exploding Kittens got tons of money, but the best news is probably about Mortal Kombat’s roster reveals this week.

Worst Story

Unfortunately, there are a variety of contenders for this prize, too. We can’t talk on the internet about sensitive topics, and Ubisoft’s stolen key fiasco was a mess. But the worst story goes to all the drama surrounding NVIDIA’s GTX 970.

Best ION

Ionbenedict thumb

I really meant to use a lady for this award this week. But then Geoff had to go and use my favourite breakfast as Tasty Tuesday. Even that Hollandaise looks right, something that is hard to find in this country.

Most Comments

There sure was a lot to say about how we can’t speak our minds online. With 123 comments, I win this week.

Least Comments

Poor Darryn. With just one comment, it seems people really didn’t care about the Nintendo Creator’s Program.

Batman of the Week

Geoff s engagement ring

Do we even need to tell you? Geoff blew us away this week, and it was already decided before the week began. Damn you Geoff, one day we will jernalizm harder than you.

Header Image of the Week

Go for the beard

There were some amazing headers this week thanks to Geoff and Darryn. It’s almost too hard to choose, but eventually this one had to win for me. (Geoff’s note…cos she has no idea who Hansie is. I WAS ROBBED!)

Comment of the Week

This award goes to Umar this week with his tantric comment about 16 hours of motion capture in the new Witcher game, mainly because we had the exact same thought.

16 hours?? DAMN….Who’s the motion actor? Sting??

Bonus Content

I know I know, gamers like bonus things because they feel that they don’t get enough. So don’t worry, here’s one of our favourite scenes from a movie.

Of course, that is an old title, so here’s something newer and flashier for those who prefer that.

          I played the devil’s advocate

          I played the, I played the fire
          I played the victim’s hand

          And if you bump into the devil
          Tell him I understand
          Rather the devil you know
          Than the devil you don’t
          I hope you can understand

            Yeah, me too. Not a fan

            Saw them live when they opened for Coldplay. They were terrible. not the music, we could hardly hear it because their sound was setup very badly. So badly we could not hear properly. Pathetic. Also heard on the radio later that they insisted on their people doing the sound for them. Coldplay sound was awesome, so theirs should have been too.

            January 30, 2015 at 14:07

            i just like two of their songs if i can recall. I think listening to them live even if the sound was good would just be boring to me.
