Some days, I think about how creepy it would be if a baby was born laughing instead of crying.

Best story

After a decade of having a mere game to their name, Riot Games isn’t just ready to chart a course for one new game in their arsenal: They’re working on several, as the future looks set to be bright for the company now that it plans to expand across several genres and mediums. A fighting game is on the horizon, there’s an RPG in development and they’re even taking a stab at a card game of their own! Presumably once they’re done mopping the floor clean of Valve’s Artifact bones that is.

Worst story of the week

I’LL SHED YOUR LOADS ESKOM! While that may just be the most obtuse threat I’ve ever flung at someone since I told my local politician that I’d treat him with kid gloves (only that the gloves are made out of actual children), it’s a feeling that many of us are processing right now. Just when Eskom’s top board decided to complain about their annual bonuses, out comes a surprise round of load shedding that looks set to continue into next week. BAH!

WTF Story of the week

You’re on Twitter. You’re looking at our latest site links, blissfully unaware that my joke only works on social media as the front page of the site happens to have an excerpts feature. You see a story that Silent Hill is coming back, and you’re all lke “Don’t do that, don’t give me hope”. Well good bad news friend! Because I may not have hope for you, but I do have a ton of despair as the latest Silent Hill game will soon be playable…in your nearest casino.

Hahaha joke’s on you, I’m always carrying.

The other day, my wife was asking me why I always carry my pistol around in the house. I replied “because of the damn decepticons”. She laughed. I laughed. The toaster laughed. I shot the toaster. Good times.
