The good, the bad and the ugly of the week – 18 September 2020

2 min read

After a hat trick of badness (load shedding, technical gremlins and an emergency trip to the dentist), we are back!

Best stories of the week


I know it’s locked to Xbox Series X and PS5, but hot damn am I pumped for the special edition of Devil May Cry 5 in all its 120fps glory! TURBO POWER! Speaking of PS5, we finally got a price on that, and sticking with Sony, their delightful TVs are making a local comeback as well. Then there’s news of Tony Hawk Pro Skater selling chuffing well, Stargate might make a return, and now that I’ve almost finished season one, anything Doom Patrol related gets me grinning from ear to ear.

Worst stories of the week


Not too much negative news thism but plenty of WTF in the section below! Pour a 40 out for your homeboy the Nintendo 3DS and the premature death of DC’s 5G initiative, and play the delay game once again as Wonder Woman might take 1984 years to reach a final release date.

WTF stories of the week


Splinter Cell is making a comeback as a VR game, AMERICA is fighting a war against products slightly similar to anything made by Apple and hey, Star Citizen totally isn’t a pipe dream. That’s your weekly weirdness in a nutshell.

Cheater Island. GET IT?

Comment of the week


Original Heretic gets the top knod this week, for appealing to something that matters most to me (due to a list typo on my part): Pure pettiness.

You should leave it there to mess with people.
But change the second one to “Became Human” and see if anyone notices.

    Great shout-out with the Kevin James video. A lot of people don’t know ol’ Paul Shart has a pretty damn decent YouTube channel.

      Genuinely one of the biggest surprises of the year. After I saw a few videos, I was like “Where has THAT Kevin James been?”
