Best stories of the week


DUNKED KNIGHTS ASSEMBLE! I’ve long been a proponent for KFC, what with its eleven secret herbs and spices having been my sole nutrition back in my varsity days and I am beyond delighted that I’ll finally have a chance to date some up and coming Kentucky chefs who’ll be following in the footsteps of Colonel Sanders. Make my passion for this game, a Streetwise Two to tango yo!

In other non-Leon Schuster ruining news, a new Rugby game is on the way! Rugby Challenge 4 will be out at the end of the year, and judging by the response of the egg-ball starved masses, I am happy that you guys are happy to have something to play. Lord knows that EA doesn’t care about rugby no more.

Worst story of the week


R100 for a fridge in Fallout 76. Honestly, anything pithy at this point will fail to compare to the dumpster fire currently raging on reddit regarding a broken promise, so I’m just going to leave that right there.

WTF story of the week


Ordinarily a story about Nintendo releasing a new fitness peripheral would be business as usual, but the reveal video for it is…unnerving. Fronted by two organisms who learnt how to be human by watching infomercials, the unblinking gaze of two health advocates using the Ring Fit Adventure gear to get healthy is the scariest horror movie of the year.

Comments of the week

Alien Emperor Trevor earns an award for perfectly summing up the final chapter of Celeste:

C’lest La Vie

Kromas sums up the Internet’s sentiments regarding EA having the most downvoted record in history and their bungling towards loot box justification in the ensuing furore:

Those are not down-votes. They are surprise anger emojis.

Yahtzee got plenty of giggles and applause for this gem that came out of Nintendo’s patent to make hinged controllers for the Switch:

Since being a gamer is now officially a mental disorder. You can really *puts on sunglasses*

Get unhinged

Fox1 has a quick take on why Driveclub deserved better:

Drivesnub, huh?

And Original Heretic makes me wish that The Lighthouse was a completely different movie entirely!
