Too cute

We love our community at lazygamer. No really, the comments and interactions make what we do so worthwhile – you keep us on our toes when we make mistakes and you jump right into the fray when we kick up the dust and cause a fight. We aren’t the only ones who love the community – it seems that it’s important to y’all, too. So here’s a humble reward.

Humble Bundle has added more games to their already awesome bundle. That’s right, the full bundle (for those who pay above the average) now includes: To the Moon, Joe Danger 2: The Movie, Papo & Yo, Runner2, Reus, Surgeon Simulator 2013, HOARD, Strike Suit Zero and Toki Tori 2+.Craig, aka Crios, has generously offered to give away a Humble Bundle to the community. It seems the festive spirit is strong in this one – no amount of holiday gorging has dulled that sense in him.

Want to get this Humble Bundle? All you need to do is comment with a valid Disqus account by Friday, 17 January. Multiple entries are allowed. Crios didn’t specify anything you need to comment on, but I think it could be a nice opportunity to talk about what you’d like to see from us and the community this year. We’re trying to do more community events (in case you hadn’t noticed), but maybe we’re missing the mark. Do you like the idea of a community gaming evening? How about monthly community drinks? What other activities would you like to see from us? I can’t promise that I can organize everything, but (as the woman of the group, other than Darryn) I do want to focus on you this year.

A big thank you to Crios for this giveaway – really awesome of you. Loving the community doing stuff for each other, it really warms the cockles of my heart.

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let's get on with it!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    “you keep us on our toes when we make mistakes” Like when you don’t capitalise Lazygamer in your first sentence?

    • Sir Rants A Lot Llew. Jelly!!!

      Lol. Well played

    • RinceThis2014

      Ouch man. You are a real bitch today :)

      • Hammersteyn

        LOL, “bitch”

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Just testing the limits of the community love. ;)

    • http://www.twitter.com/WobblyOnion Exalted Overlord Geoffrey Tim

      It’s stylised that way in our logo. bungie does it too. Also, this is just an excuse.

      • Weanerdog

        OK, how about the youthis in the last sentence? :)

        I do blame the editor for this not Zoe, never Zoe

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Well she said she wanted to focus on us, and what better way to emphasize that than with a deliberate spelling mistake that focuses on us?

          • RinceThis2014

            Nice try buddy, nice try…

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Shut up! I’m THIS close to fooling them ALL mwuhahahahaha

      • Potty for Poo

        I just found this website googling the humble bundle. Have to say love the fresh angle of articles. Keep going! not even from SA!

  • Sir Rants A Lot Llew. Jelly!!!

    That’s cool. I think Lagz is doing a fantastic job (However I would prefer not to see any religious viewpoints in things as I don’t think it has anything to do with the price of games)

    The community get togethers are cool. I suggest perhaps a Lazygamer Teamspeak channel?

    • VampyricSquirrel Monk

      We have a Mumble server available thanks to Kromas, check the Steam group :)

      • Sir Rants A Lot Llew. Jelly!!!

        schaweet

    • Ottokie

      A teamspeak channel would be awesome…wonder what it will sound like after 8 on a Friday night :D

      • VampyricSquirrel Monk

        It’ll be fine as long as oVg and Rince aren’t on it…

        • RinceThis2014

          You shut up or we’ll start charging you to play GTAV with us!

          • VampyricSquirrel Monk

            Lol! I’ll just play alone… if I ever start my xbox up again… it’s been 6 days (give or take) since its last boot.

        • TiMsTeR1033

          You guys even play still last couple times gta online was dead!

          • VampyricSquirrel Monk

            I’ll be on soon enough… been distracted by other games and systems and stuff.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Im busy dieing everyday on Dark Souls, dieing has never felt soo good! (I lie it sucks balls)

      • Sir Rants A Lot Llew. Jelly!!!

        If OVG is there? Loads of epic lulz rants. We can call it OVG happy hour

        • VampyricSquirrel Monk

          You should see OVG and Rince on GTA Online on a Saturday night… it’s funny as hell!

    • Umar digs KOS-MOS

      I could get behind TeamSpeak. And I concur, no religious or any other political view points

  • Craig “Crios” Boonzaier

    Goodluck All.
    For bonus points you can send me cake and gifs of kittens.

    • VampyricSquirrel Monk

      Awesome one! Hopefully everyone plays nice with this one lol

    • WhiteRock

      Nice Craig! I assume Gerhard / Charl gave you a nice bonus in Dec for this one? ;-)

      • Craig “Crios” Boonzaier

        Nah, I just gifting things, makes my inner gamer feel all warm and fuzzy.
        Also, WHO ARE YOU STALKER PERSON.

        • WhiteRock

          Muhahahaha! Would’nt you like to know :-)

          • Admiral Chief in Vegas

            LOLZ

    • Admiral Chief in Vegas

      So I am assuming my gif earlier today helped?

      • Craig “Crios” Boonzaier

        Ye, its like i need to get my fix of cat gifs.

    • RockMossel2014

      Would like to thank you again for the Mighty Quest for Epic Loot! Played it the other night and it’s quite awesome!

      • Craig “Crios” Boonzaier

        No probs man, enjoy the game.
        Also on that note, for other people, I still have 2 copies of the “The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot” game.
        Hook me up on Steam if you are interested.
        http://steamcommunity.com/id/Crios23/

        • Admiral Chief in Vegas

          Send me one!

          • Craig “Crios” Boonzaier

            Will do, just remind me on Steam, be naggy, cuz I can be forgetful.

          • Admiral Chief in Vegas

            Already sent you a msg :)

    • Potty for Poo

      will a hearty meow do?… meo…

  • Gerhard Davids

    Kudos to Crios.
    We need more excuses to drink. It’s simple mathemagics.

  • VampyricSquirrel Monk

    That’s really awesome of Crios! Way to give back to the community!

    The Lagz community is awesome and the staff joining in makes it even more fun. Hopefully I can make the next Gauteng get together, will be epicness! I’m just glad Rince won’t be there… I don’t think we’d survive that…

    • Her Highness the Hipster

      lol – we’d all end up covered in wine!

      • VampyricSquirrel Monk

        More than likely!

      • RinceThis2014

        You called?:)

      • General JJ Raven (John)

        Sounds like a party

      • RockMossel2014

        How about a Lazygamer wine tour! (in Cape Town ofcourse)

        • Craig “Crios” Boonzaier

          Yes, I am in Somerset West/Stellenbosch side, so wine farms to the max.

          • RockMossel2014

            I might be addicted to wine tasting. Like really.

    • RinceThis2014

      You shut it :P

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Oh there’s a trick to it. You need to keep a spray bottle with some Citronella handy & whenever he gets out of hand you give him a few squirts. Just like you do with naughty pets.

    • TiMsTeR1033

      hope so too squirrel..can finally buy you that beer I owe you!

  • Umar digs KOS-MOS

    So, I really love FFD, why do something like that more. Maybe twice a week? Flamebate Friday or Rek jou Bek Tuesday (Excuse my naming, saw someone reading the voice) I think this community consists of some really well articulated members and some good honest debates can be really fun.

  • WhiteRock

    Nice Craig! Like the idea of the LazyGamer steam group and wouldn’t mind more gaming sessions being set up(seeing as I now finally have CS:GO) :-)

    • RockMossel2014

      I second a lazygamer CS:GO session!

    • Kromas

      We had a little Borderlands session going the other day.

  • Devourer of Small Bunnies

    Poop (sorry its all I got for now)

  • General JJ Raven (John)

    Was staring at this this morning. Nothing I really want that badly to risk my backlog getting even bigger.

  • Hammersteyn

    Monthly community drinks? Finally something I’m good at.

  • Albertus van Rensburg

    That bundle is mine you hear? MINE! :-D

  • ElimiNathan

    You guys are trying really hard and I love that there are ppl out there that love gaming as much as I do. I always wanted to make games since I had my first Golden China console. I will probably never do it as it requires far too much effort for a lazy person like me :P I will just resume playing the awesome creations other ppl come up with. Destiny – You better be good!

  • RinceThis2014

    I like the LG meet ups. Be nice to build on that over here in Cape Town!

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Inderdaad.

    • Rock789

      Damn skippy! :) Keep the awesomeness coming.

      • RinceThis2014

        Hehe, now, go and pretend you like my Don Jon article :P

  • TiMsTeR1033

    great that you want to get the community together!

  • Admiral Chief in Vegas

    Humble and Crios ftw!

  • Gareth L (That Guy)

    Anything to contribute to charity! :)

  • Kensei Seraph

    Thanks for the community love Crios.

    I’m interested enough in Strike Suit Zero that I might just get this bundle for myself, although I wouldn’t object to winning the bundle (hint hint).

  • Chris N.

    More gaming nights…hopefully I’ll be notify before it begins #squared

  • Kensei Seraph

    I like the idea of the community gaming evenings, except that not everyone has and/or enjoys the same games.
    It’d probably be a good idea to organize several different games to be played at once so that people can play whatever they want.

  • Bianca

    Well, you guys are doing a good job so far. But those community gaming events would be quite awesome. Maybe with a larger variety of games, too?

    • Jaded_Reprobate

      Couldn’t agree more
      would be… uhm …interesting to see Zoe playing FPS’s

      • Admiral Chief in Vegas

        lol, indeed!

      • Bianca

        I think she won’t be tooo bad. Then again, if she sucks then a lot of gamers are going to get a massive ego boost. Either way we all kind of benefit from it.

    • http://www.lazygamer.net Gavin Mannion

      Yeah we are definitely going to keep them going.. thinking larger games would be a better idea though

      • Bianca

        And maybe one day we’ll have so many gamers that attend that we break rAge’s record… or something

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    I enjoyed the community L4D2 let’s play the other night. I rarely play anything online & it was cool to do something different & a lot of fun.

    I did see the one person complaining about not being able to take part, so maybe in future just make it a little clearer about how we all get into what we’re playing.

    • Admiral Chief in Vegas

      Yeah, I assumed that becoz we are mos part of the group that it would show up or something, granted it can be a group thing, or a L4D2 setting? But yeah. I agree.

      Word to the wise, keep your medpack, Trevor needs it! ;)

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        lol. It was my first time!

        (Wait for it…)

        • Kensei Seraph

          That’s what you said.

        • RinceThis2014

          ;)

        • Her Highness the Hipster

          woah! you let @Admiral_Chief:disqus pop your cherry?

          • RinceThis2014

            *backs away slowly…

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            He & Gavin were gentle & made sure I felt safe & protected.

          • RockMossel2014

            Good save.

          • Admiral Chief in Vegas

            More than a few times actually…

        • http://www.lazygamer.net Gavin Mannion

          You did better than me… it’s been a while fo rme

          • Admiral Chief in Vegas

            I was expecting you to suck, but you actually complimented our little band of survivors instead of dragging us down :P

  • SlasherZA

    Gimme gimme gimme :D

  • http://www.twitter.com/WobblyOnion Exalted Overlord Geoffrey Tim

    You suck, this site sucks and the commentors suck.
    #theresalwaysone #mayaswellbeme

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      No spelling mistakes. Good job Geoff!

      • Kromas

        Hahaha Trolling level max rank reached.

  • Xcalibersa

    Awesome

  • Rock789

    Love LG – by far my favourite gaming site! And loving the regular get togethers we’ve started in the City of the Mountain… Always great fun and a really great bunch of pals.

    P.S. Peeps from the CPT gathering – you think OvG’s golf ball is still in the air? :)

    P.P.S. For those wondering on the above, OvG hit a slightly wayward shot that found it’s way between the nets and their support posts… It was still there when we left. :)

    • RinceThis2014

      HAHAHA! It probably is :)

    • RinceThis2014

      And, Da lads!

      • Andre116

        Dear lord that one on the left is handsome.

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          See the way the light just shines down on him. It’s as if the sun was shining just for him :D

  • Galbedir

    An opportunity to say what I’d like to see from Lazygamer and critique. Woo!! I kid, Keep up the good work, wouldn’t change a thing. I want Surgeon Simulator!

  • Anon A Mouse

    Zoe, since we as the community are a bunch of sexist that degrade women to be mere objects, maybe we should rather be focusing on you. (There I’ve said it.)

    As to the love from LG and Crios it is much appreciated. Unfortunately I live too far away to be able to join in the community get togethers and my 3g makes it unable to do the online gaming stuff, but I like the fact that the community is actually reaching out to one another.

  • Cat
