The good, the bad and the ugly of the last week – 6 June 2013

What a crazy week it’s been.  I flew for a million hours (or so it seemed) to return home, just as Geoff and Darryn take off to E3.  Now it will be my job to give Gavin oxygen, and considering that I’m the bottom of the Batman totem pole, I suppose it falls to me to make sandwiches as well.  Still beats sitting in coach (Ed: Economy for those that speak proper English) for two days of my life.

Best Story

The last major release for the PS3 might just be one of the best – The Last of Us looks pretty great!.  It’s nice to see the PS3 get such a huge release, even with the PS4 around the corner.  Looking forward to this one!

Worst Story

While we are very happy for him and wish him all the best, we are all saddened at the loss of our Wookiee.  Good luck Garth, not that you need it!  You will be missed.

Best ION Header

Because she has awesome ‘dirty pillows’ and doesn’t have a face like a foot.  Well done!  Oh, and because that linen looks really sumptuous.  Yup, all about the sheets.

Most Comments

This honor goes to Geoff for his round up on reviews for The Last of Us.  Guess this just goes to show – it’s not always about the sexual innuendo and flame baiting.

hahaha suck it Geoff… While you were flying I dropped the DRM bomb and the comments shot past your round up rubbish.. (I take this seriously – Gavin)

Least Comments

Coming full circle, this more dubious award goes to Geoff – apparently no one wanted to see inFamous dots.  I suppose it brings balance to the universe or something for Geoff to get both of these awards… and I’m just happy it’s not my ‘award’ this week!

Batman of the Week

 

Riding his porn story to glory, Gavin annihilated the rest of us and was clearly Batman this week.  I suppose he also needs his day in the sun from time to time, especially seeing as he normally has to spend all his time making the rest of us happy.  I’m still bitter, and still holding out on posing as ION chick until I am Batman.  But Gavin totally deserves it.  Damn him.

Best Header Image

Because Zuma turtle!  Need I say more?

Comment of the week

Sir Rants-a-lot Llew’s use of photoshop in this comment made laugh more than I should admit.  Geoff just looks so cute!

 

But as far as wit goes, it has to be Andre116′s Ass Effect happy ending come back

Pick your own ending. Will just be the colour of the condom that changes.

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!
  • Hammersteyn

    It’s almost weekend!

    • Rainman

      As long as you dont have just ONE.

    • Rinceyouropinion

      What a plick! HAHAHAHA! Well done man, well done!

    • CaptainNemo42

      I can drink to that. I just found out the place with the best beer and burger in the world is already fully booked for tomorrow… :(

      • Hammersteyn

        Where?

        • CaptainNemo42

          Gilroy’s Pub in Mulderdrift.

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            Pffff. Keg and Archer Centurion FTW

          • Admiral Chief Commander

            Pfff. My house

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            Pfff. Anywhere there is beer!

          • CaptainNemo42

            The one in Ecopark?

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            That be the one

          • CaptainNemo42

            Aww Man, the memories start flooding back. I used to work at a place just down Witchhazel road. We used to take over that Keg & Archer almost every Friday.

            Nee, nee. Ons gaan net EEN drink….

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            Hahaha. One never stops at one. Nooit nie :)

          • CaptainNemo42

            But seriously Gilroys is a brilliant place. Worth the trip. Especially if you book the Saturday “Beer experience” with Gilroy himself. It’s basically drinking a drunk Irishman’s beer, while said Irishman talks crap and drinks with you.

            His family crest is Dolphins and a middle finger. I mean, who doesn’t want to go there?

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            That sounds epic

          • Skyblue

            Sounds awesome! A round on me and I even just bought one for FoxHound, here he is…

          • CaptainNemo42

            You sure he got those kind of skills? I would’ve thought he would need his dad’s help.

          • Slade Boender

            Where is said place? Sounds interesting

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            Eco boulevard just off Witchazel across from Eco Park Estates

          • Slade Boender

            hectic, we hitting that place up for bowling tonight, might make a run by after

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            Sweet! You may just see me there. Maybe. Depends on choices later on.

          • Slade Boender

            HAHAHA real life RPG. Folk will be tweeted neh!

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            I shall keep an eye on that then

          • CaptainNemo42

            Bowling? Since when bowling there?

          • Slade Boender

            the place is called lets bowl. Not the old people one, the ten pin one

          • CaptainNemo42

            Wow. Now that you mention it.. I think somebody mentioned that. I haven’t been there for a while. I think I need to organise a reunion with my old work mates at Keg & Archer.

            And try our hand at hitting some pins.

      • Rinceyouropinion

        Where man, dammit!

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    • Andre116

      Agreed. Got a bottle of rum with name on it at home…and tonight my name is Captain Morgan.

  • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    Hahaha. Well done Andre!

    *side note: That image was inspired by Erwin when he went and put Darryns head on the boogie dancer :)

    • Admiral Chief Commander

      Thanks, no one acknowledges me here anymore :(

      • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

        I acknowledge you. There there *Pats Erwin on the head*

      • Rinceyouropinion

        • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

      Enjoy the glory man :)

  • TiMsTeR1033

    • FoxHound R – Xbox One Day One

      Geoff is the new Brenda

    • Guest

      Is it just me or does Geoff look like he is enjoying being groped by Chewbacca?

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

      That is magical. :)

  • Slade Boender

    Whats up with the downvote patrol? Did some get poop in their oats this morning?

    • Hammersteyn

      Foxhound…

      • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

        What he said

      • Slade Boender

        Its almost like it matters

        • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

          Well I’d be upset getting poop in my oats too you know :P

          • Slade Boender

            Even marshmallowy poop? I love me some marshmallowy poop.

          • Hammersteyn

            I miss rice crispies and those teeny marshmallows.

      • Rinceyouropinion

        Indeed.

      • FoxHound R – Xbox One Day One

        I got the most downvotes. I’m a victim here.

        • Hammersteyn

          Victim of being prick.

          • FoxHound R – Xbox One Day One

            You were that kid that they had to put those plastic gloves on right? Your obsession with your genitalia is worrying.

          • Hammersteyn

            You’re still a prick.

          • FoxHound R – Xbox One Day One

            Do you know what the definition of insanity is?

          • Rinceyouropinion

            HAHAHAH! JUst saw this, well done man!

        • http://lazygamer.net/ OVG

          lol I think it is your user name that is giving it away :p

          • Grant Hancock

            OVG for the win ! hahaha

          • http://lazygamer.net/ OVG

          • Rinceyouropinion

            Hahahah! Nice one boet!

    • FoxHound R – Xbox One Day One

      No idea

      people are very emotional today. I got 6 downvotes and all I said was that zuma turtle was cool.

    • FoxHound R – Xbox One Day One

      I think its the sony defence squad. they’re worried because E3 is near.

      • Hammersteyn

        Right……… so the only people here with upvotes and downvotes is us while you only have downvotes. Tell me anothe one prick.

        • FoxHound R – Xbox One Day One

          Play nice hammer

          • Hammersteyn

            Sorry Gavin, but this guy really winds me up for some reason. I will ease up on him.

          • FoxHound R – Xbox One Day One

            Thanks bru, it’s really hurtful when you say those things about me.

            I’m like “why does this dude hate me so”, and then I’m like “damn Fox, maybe it’s something you said”.

          • Hammersteyn

            …………………………………………………….

  • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

    Never been more happier that it’s weekend

    • Rinceyouropinion

      You and me both brother. Though I was happy with being able to write the best review that LG has ever seen this week. That was kindda cool. Hope they ask me to do something like this again!

      • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

        Did you submit on your own or were you asked?

        • Rinceyouropinion

          Geoff asked the world via twitter. I responded.

          • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

            ooh shweet man, that is awesome, would love to review a game, though I have never reviewed anything before beside my rear-view mirror….huh huh….get it?

          • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

            Lol Immediately become asexual…..sigh what a horrible week :for console news (

          • Rinceyouropinion
