All of these cancelled festivals messed up by not booking The Cure.
Best stories of the week
It wasn’t a bad week at all! This morning started out with some great news regarding the revival of Silent Hill, yesterday saw the unveiling of a delightful LEGO Mario playset and there’s also news of Sony doubling down on what made their PS4 games so gosh dang great. Lastly, there’s a free to play Call of Duty battle royale out right now, which for all intents and purposes is pretty neat. If you can stomach having to do an almost 100gb download for it.
Worst stories of the week
Look, let’s just go ahead and list everything that got impacted by that darn Coronavirus already. All those movies you were looking forward to? Cancelled. E3 2020? Cancelled. Box office returns? Worse than expected because COVID-19. There’s going to be a LOT of this sort of news in the weeks to come, and this is only the tip of the Corona-berg so get used to it.
WTF story of the week
I want to paint you a picture: You’re playing DOOM Eternal’s Battlemode, you’re on the side of evil and chances are you’re about to take a chainsaw to the face. There he stands, the Doomslayer in all of his resplendent glory and decked in the finest Unicorn armour that Hell has learnt to fear. It’s not a joke, it’s not an early April Fool’s gag. This is for real.

I for one wouldn’t mind a world where Rock is the only music genre available
