The good, the bad and the ugly of the week – 03 April 2020

3 min read

Since most men get an erection when they wake up, the planet is constantly doing a boner wave.

Best stories of the week


I recently watched Rise of Skywalker, which was kind of a…dumb film. I don’t dislike it, but I can’t say that I’ll make an effort to see it again anytime soon. What i would have watched several times over though, is Colin Trevorrow’s original pitch for the new trilogy-ending film, one that has been delightfully animated! Check it out.

Meanwhile, fans of Mario have reasons to be happy. Multiple reasons! Looks like Nintendo is going to do what it does best, which is make you buy the same game several times over. HAW! Lastly, I’ down for more Rick and Morty, as the second half of the latest season arrives soon according to the latest and schwiftiest trailer which just landed.

Worst stories of the week


DAMMIT CORONA! We’ve had a whole bunch of delays thrown at us this week, as well as the cancellation of QuakeCon 2020 and an indefinite postponement of The Last of Us Part II. On top of all that, is news of how Gearbox employees being all but robbed of their promised bonuses for making Borderlands 3 such a swell game to play. It’s almost as if massive corporations fronted by controversial figures don’t have the wellbeing of their employees in mind.

WTF story of the week


There wasn’t much that made me spit my tea out like a British officer dumbfounded at an American rebel army’s refusal to engage in a war that is won by seeing who runs out of soldiers first, but there is this! Killer Clowns! From outer space! Sequel! Exclamation marks! Actually wait, one more WTF story: That rumour of Destiny 3 being a thing, that fooled absolutely no one when the leak in question came from a photoshopped image straight out of The Terminator. All the lolz.

Header image of the week


I’m the only one in the gang currently even doing custom header images when I have a chance, so this is basically me patting myself on the back every week. That being said, I’m surprised at just how resilient and handy my Sad Dawson Slayer image has been lately.

Comment of the week


I’ll be honest, it’s hard to find comments this week. Everyone is depressed, a lot of you can’t crib some time on the site since you’re no longer at work and it feels a little unfair to only reward the truly faithful in the glorious Critical Hit crusade. Still love you guys though HUGS! So until things are back to normal, I’ll be putting the comments award on hold. And replacing it with something else, I suppose. Like an analysis of the potential chance at winning that a duck could have if it faced a silverback gorilla. SCIENCE!

  1. You would think people would be more active with comments during this time. Just goes to show many people were probably only bored at work and would rather read CH.

    But it’s not only here, I’ve noticed a big decrease in comments on other sites I go to often as well. Very strange.

    Miss all the sillyness and dissing old Kasie

      Often it’s just that people are gaming or running around after their kids or something as well.

      Some of us are still working from home though, so eh.

        This is my 3rd week of working at home. To say I’m going slightly crazy is probably an understatement.

        I do tend to feel like I should be focusing on work more and not surf around on the net. My daily schedule has also changed. Used to mainly come on during lunch time but everything has just been different lately.

          I’m hating this “work from home” thing.

      Since Darryn has gone all Bheki Cele on the comment section most of us are chatting on other platforms.
