The good, the bad and the ugly of the last week – 29 November 2013


I’m trying to write this while finally making myself some sort of meal that fills the void left in my stomach by not having time to make breakfast/brunch/lunch/supper, so I do apologise if the weekly wrap is covered in egg grease stains.

Best Story

One of my favourite success stories of recent years has to be Star Citizen, which just won’t stop raising cash and now has over $33 million to match the grand ambitions that are being promised to gamers. That kind of cash buys a whole lot of high definition faith.

Worst Story

Honestly, how low in life do you have to sink to want to actively hack Pokémon X and Y just so that you can beat a child at virtual monster-battling?

Best ION Header


I think the lovely Ashley Zeitler will silence anyone who has been complaining about the fact that I provide a lovely lady for free almost every single day since I started working here.

Most Comments

Evidently many of you are still wearing your Grove Street colours, as news of San Andreas downsizing and headed to mobile devices earned Geoff 143 comments.

Least Comments

And on the opposite side of that spectrum, I made just two comments for my secret technique post on the new Naruto game. With one of those comments coming from me as well. So that’s how it feels to be certain gaming sites.

Bicycle Repair Man Of The Week

Bicycle Repair Man

I’m tired of not being Batman lately, so this week I’m making Gavin that other great hero, Bicycle Repair Man. Look at how he uses a spanner! See how he mends that tube with his bare hands! Faulty bicycles and international communism are no match for…Bicycle Repair Man!

Header Image Of The Week


Screw the entire team at Lazygamer, I will not go empty-handed this week. I’m nabbing best header for myself, thanks to my love of  a good Final Fantasy game and the upcoming Quantum Break.

Comment Of The Week

And OVG wins the presitigious comment of the week award for his keen insight into next-gen gaming:

"non-gaming related" ????
I thought the entire reason to buy a next gen console is because they are not gaming related.

Author:Darryn Bonthuys

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

  • Ultimo_Cleric N7

    hahaha! Nice OVG. So true mate

  • Hammersteyn

    Nice one OVG! Also I didn’t know you were allowed to count your own comments Darryn. Wouldn’t it then count as one comment for least comments of the week?

    • That Tall Twit

      Was wondering the same thing.

  • That Tall Twit

    Grats to OVG!

  • Admiral Chief Duke

    Awwww jisssss, well done OVG!!!

  • Devourer of Small Bunnies

    OVG always on the ball as usual :)

  • Admiral Chief Duke

    Becoz Darryn has the better-er ION skills than Geoff:

    • Unavengedavo(aka. MadeYouLook)

      Lol, NEVER FORGET!…

      • Vampyric Squirrel of the Sith

        Lol! dodgy

      • ProtestTheMossel

        After seeing that I have officially reached my personal cap for internet in one day. Time to walk around the block and think how I got here.

      • RyseandRepeat

        That’s ALMOST as bad as ice cream man!

    • Airborne

      Everytime… Everytime there is a dispute, somebody drags this one out… I mean, REALLY!!!

    • InsanityFlea

      Could’ve been worse, what if he used this guy?

      • Unavengedavo(aka. MadeYouLook)

        Or even worse :O…

        • InsanityFlea

          You win! hahahahaha

        • HvR

          Sies man. This is no place for left to right nekkid asshole.

        • RyseandRepeat

          Gahhhhhh! It’s taken months to unsee this WHY?!

        • Airborne

          …apparently NOT!

      • Airborne

        THE PAIN…………….Will it ever end?

  • John’s (JJ’s) finest excuse

    Nice one OVG

  • Rock789

    OVG strikes again! :) Nice one bud!

    • RyseandRepeat

      Shhh! Don’t spur him on, you;ll have to hear about it all of tomorrow!

  • DieJason

    Hahaha, love Bicycle Repair Man!

  • SargonTheGreatPandaOfAkkad

    Lol @ OVG. Such depth of perception. Such clarity. A sneak peek into the mind of a genius. Or the mind of a volatile schizophrenic. You decide. ;)

    *Edit: Gratz dude. Well said.

    • Unavengedavo(aka. MadeYouLook)

      A volatile schizophrenic genius

  • Anon A Mouse

    I’m more surprised that OVG won Comment of the Week without it being a rant. But well done son.

    • RyseandRepeat

      Have you noticed how he is a lot calmer? My slipping drugs into his beer is working…

      • Anon A Mouse

        Is that what it is? I though he’s given up on life since the Black Cat debacle.

        • RyseandRepeat

          Careful man!

  • Vampyric Squirrel of the Sith

    Well done OvG-San!

  • John’s (JJ’s) finest excuse

    I liked Zoe’s header on EA’s bugs

  • oVg

    Oh shucks my LG brethren :)
    I will lead you out of corporate indoctrination.

  • RyseandRepeat

    Oh christ, I am never going to hear the end of this tomorrow! He’s coming over at 12 and will speak about his comment of the week for as many hours. Le Sigh! Well done older bro, I have taught thee well.
