The good, the bad and the ugly of the last week (21 December 2012)
Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the final weekly round up of 2012! We’ve got plenty of content to get through as usual, so without further banter or delay, here we go!
THQ is bankrupt! So how could this possibly be the best story of the week then? Because they’ve been bailed out faster than SAA this time around, meaning that the current line-up of games will still ship. Whether they’re the last such big budget games or not from that publisher remains to be seen, but rest assured, 2013 will see a Stick of Truth and Russian gas-masks make an appearance.
So The War Z is a half-arsed game mixed with terrible PR, stolen assets and misleading advertising? Either way you slice that, that ain’t good, which is why that story of zombie apocalypses gone wrong is our worst story of the week.

In the summer time, when the weather is right, you can perve over Cole Jayden, in the summer time…
Gavin was in fine form this week, posting up another controversy-stirrer, as his article on whether the most harmful thing to women in gaming possibly being themselves, drew out 107 responses in an otherwise slow week.
And the dubious distinction of getting least comments this week goes to…Kaos. Our resident Skylanders expert was not happy with this news that one of his features got zero comments, as he began plotting revenge on all those who dared not say something. Like with a giant robot, or something, I don’t know, I was distracted by his big head.
RinceThis tapped into my intense loathing of Peter Molyneux this week, with this absolute gem of a comment;
He also needs to take a heavy does of ‘shut the fuck up’ at least 3 times a day.
I’ll be honest here, any comment slating Peter Molyneux is a winner in my book.

Between all the awards and this being a slow season, we were kind of lazy on the photoshop this week, I’ll confess. So this week, I’m giving the award to Yolanda, who used a screenshot from my all time favourite YouTube cartoon, which tickled my funny bones immensely.
