Blinking is the space bar for your eyes
Best stories of the week
There was some good news this week! Between a former boss from Sony calling for reason in the bloated AAA game space and EA realising that making Star Wars games that aren’t filled with surprise mechanics will actually earn them plenty of love, there was a whole lot of content that put a good smile on my face.
Plus Michael Keaton is coming back as Batman, an announcement that resulted in my pants exploding with so much force that it could be seen from space in all of its sticky and messy glory. But let’s be real here: The headline stealer for tis week is Cyberpunk 2077 and (surprise!) Cyberpunk 2077. CYBERPUNK CYBERPUNK CYBERPUNK!
Worst stories of the week
I don’t think there was really anything bad this week that went down, in the grand scheme of things. Actually wait, I found something! A third Mamma Mia film is in the works, and Microsoft has pulled the plug on Mixer, but no one is really sad about that because nobody actually used it.
WTF story of the week
A Pokémon MOBA. Really. REALLY NINTENDO? WHY ARE YOU MAKING ME HATE MY OWN FRANCHISE AND NO I DON’T CARE THAT THERE ARE A BAZILLION OTHER POCKET MONSTER GAMES OUT THERE RAGE! Also that rumour of Deadpool killing the X-Men on the big screen actually sounds real neat. Make it DIsney, and take all my dollars.

Comment of the week
This week’s prestigious no-prize goes to…Craigish! No I am not writing your name out with random capital letters I REFUSE! Anyway, there’s a whole bunch of new Twitch goodies on the way, and ol’ Craigish took the time to help one of our readers unlock them, with a detailed breakdown on how to do so. Way to be an awesome sport, Craigish!
Movie genius of the week
Our showdown with Big Screen Hooligans continued this week, with Critical Hit managing a one-two victory! Kervyn took first place, narrowly defeating me in a sudden death round where his lifetime obsession with the Minions finally came in handy.
You win this round Cloete, but I’ll be there to grab victory next time we meet!
