The good, the bad and the ugly of the week – 22 May 2020

2 min read

Puns about your body are corny, but puns about your eyes are cornea.

Best stories of the day


Good news everyone! In fact, a lot of it! The Last of Us Part II continues to look amazing, Serious Sam 4 has a serious August release date, EA wants to see a lot of customisation in Command & Conquer by releasing the game source file to fans, Zack Snyder is making his dream Justice League movie at long last, Marvel’s video game boss would love to see a Daredevil game and it is now confirmed that Tencent will be taking care of System Shock and the best Captain in Starfleet is finally getting his own TV series. Phew!

All that, and a delightful tease of the Friendships returning to Mortal Kombat 11 next week.

Worst stories of the week


In a controversial decision, id Software decided to add intrusive anti-cheating software to DOOM Eternal and oh man the fans were not happy. G2A’s convoluted scheme to shift responsibility regarding the resale of stolen keys on their site backfired spectacularly, reports came in that Microsoft’s new Surface Duo may have a battery problem and I’m kind of bummed that Ruby Rose is leaving Batwoman.

There’s also America continuing to be a massive jealous jerk towards Huawei, and penguin fans (not the Batman comics chaps) were left sad that their favourite virtual hangout was being dealt the final deathblow thanks to perverts running rampant on Club Penguin Online.

WTF stories of the week


Oh EA, just let Anthem die already. Maybe the game can be saved, but the damage has been done. Also, do you fancy having Superman in your game of Total War: Warhammer? Good news on that front!

Why don’t you take a seat?

Comment of the week


This week, Hammer gets the nod for not only going to the effort to accurately Onomatopoeia the sound of Christopher Nolan’s signature trailer sound, but to give it the proper Tenet treatment as well:

    Maybe it is because we are closer to the same age than I am with the general meme crowds. Maybe it is because I used to play Overwatch with some of you guys like 3 or so years ago (bet y’all didn’t know that) or maybe it’s because we’re Saffas…but the memes on these weekly posts are always, without fail, the best I’ve seen in any given week.

    Also yes the Overwatch thing is irrelevant I just wanted to see if anybody remembers lol

      Thanks man! I normally spend a good hour curating a collection of memes to chuck in here, so I’m happy that it puts a smile on your face.
