jessie

Please heed my warning, before you enter here. This is a den of fart jokes and overused Nazi jokes, inside is all that you fear. Stay close and keep your eyes open, the ghosts of Batman’s past you will meet. The lurkers of comments they congregate here, if they draw you in you will be beat. Beware…

Best Story

I don’t think any one story can come out on top this week, thanks to the news that we have a ton of new games on the way. Mortal Kombat X, Forza Horizon 2 and hell, even Homefront: The Revolution are skipping the E3 reveal for a quick glimpse into the future of gaming.

Worst Story

Hey look, another game that you’ve eagerly been waiting for this year, delayed to 2015! Batman: Arkham Knight joins the latest casualty list, leaving October with the unexpected side-effect of being less cramped this year.

STILL. I was rather looking forward to playing it. Instead, I have to get naked and go cry in a shower.

ION Header Of The Week

margie_cox_as_psylocke_2_by

Cosplay makes me happy! Especially when I see some ace Japanese ninja with a British mind and psychokintic hand to hand combat abilities expertly portrayed, by the very lovely Margie Cox.

Most Comments

Let’s be honest here: South Africa isn’t as a big a market as some European and American territories, but we’re getting there. Still, because of our size, we’re often overlooked on a multitude of matters, from gaming through to tech. But knowing that we have dedicated local staff looking to change that status quo? Now that’s some positive news.

Least Comments

Due to the fact that Zoe does not have terrible facial hair or side-burns that would make the Wolverine laugh his sides open, her latest indie post has only net her four comments.

Batman Of The Week

yo dawg

Right now, Geoff and I are battling it out for this slot as I write this, with the narcoleptic leading by a mere 1%. Update: Nope. Geoff wins it. Again. :(

Header Image Of The Week

NEWip

Dammit, Geoff scoops best header this week again for combining Watch Dogs with kickass Asian cinema. It’s like he’s good at this or something.

Comment Of The Week

Congrats to RinceThis, who finally wins comment of the week. Well, to the best of my knowledge anyway. Here’s his rib-tickler entry this week with regards to Goat Simulator and its patches being a better love story than Twilight:

And still works better than Battlefield 4.

You sir, get a No-Prize.

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.

  • oVgeeeeee Comet Drop

    Bwahahahaha
    Good one Rince

    try{
    //Rince makes a joke
    }catch(Joke e){
    int attempt = e.getAttemptCount()++;
    System.out.println(attempt);//prints 10000
    }finally{
    System.out.println(“Rince won comment of the week after more than 10000 comments”);
    }

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Looks like Vaas was wrong after all.

    • Admiral Chief Blackburn

      Ek weet nie wat is erger nie, die feit dat ek jou kode verstaan, of die feit dat dit so snaaks is nie.

      Knap gedaan ou maat!

      • https://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX Umar’s Crown

        Lol dankie :)

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Surely it’s more of an exception error? ;)

      • https://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX Umar’s Crown

        Lol FatalException , you’re right!

        • VampyreSquirrel

          404 Rince not found?

    • Rincearbiterofhumour

      3rd time :P Get your maths straight dammit!

    • Kensei Seraph

      Your code seems a bit off.
      If I’m reading it right Rince will win as long as he makes a joke.
      Alternatively Rince will win as long as he makes a joke from now on.

      • https://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX Umar’s Crown

        I know yes lol the assumption should be made that this code ran after his 10000th attempt. Otherwise finally will always run no matter what so that means he will always win as you stated :) it was only meant yo highlight that FINALLY Rince won lol

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Congrats Rince!

  • Sk3tz0

    Whats the Batman of the Week all about.. ??

    • Admiral Chief Blackburn

      Dis ‘n weeklikse “geveg” tussen die staf om te kyk wie se artikels die meeste verkeer genereer. Gavin het ‘n slim program aanmekaar geslaan om die berekeninge te doen, en dan sit mens met die wenner!

      • HvR – THE Average GAmer

        Ag nee man wat is dit met hierdie anglisisme. *personeel

        • Admiral Chief Blackburn

          Nee wat, hulle is te Ingels om in sulke Afrikaans benoem te word…
          :)

          • HvR – THE Average GAmer

            Ons moet dit suiwer hou. ‘n Staf is slegs die stok waarmee die grys towenaar rond hardloop of wat Jannie uithaal net voor hy piepie.

          • Suiwerkommentaar

            Of die staf is die ding waarmee die personeel gewetter word as hulle nie vlermuisman van die week wen nie.

          • Admiral Chief Blackburn

            HAHAHAHAHA, kolskoot!

          • HvR – THE Average GAmer

            LBH

  • Admiral Chief Blackburn

    UIteindelik kan Rince by die MANNE aansluit!

  • HvR – THE Average GAmer

    ‘n Welverdiende staande applous vir die Gemmer.

  • Hammersteyn

    GG Rince!

    • Admiral Chief Blackburn

    You [fine afrikaans speaking gentlemen] are making me feel like I took a detour through Oranje.

    • Consumer of Little Rabbits

      stadig oor die klippe hoor!

    • Anon A Mouse

      Maar dit is dan so lekker om in Die Taal te kan kommunikeer. Alhoewel ek ook nou eerlik moet wees en sê dat my hoof al ietwat pyn as gevolg van die alewige gedink en tik in Afrikaans.

      • Admiral Chief Blackburn

        Dit wys jou net, mens raak lui!

        Ek gaan voortaan ELKE Vrydag in Afrikaans kommunikeer op ALLE platforme!

        • HvR – THE Average GAmer

          Klink na blink plan, ietsie anders voor ons elke Vrydag middag die bokke jaag.

          • Admiral Chief Blackburn

            Inderdaad ou maat, inderdaad

    • Admiral Chief Blackburn

      En moenie dink ons kan nie tussen jou hakies lees nie meneer!

      Ek vind dit wel vreemd dat jy so woord sal uitspel…

    • HvR – THE Average GAmer

      Oranje?!?!?! Hey dit is rassisties

    • Mark Treloar

      Don’t fall off your horse

    • CAE9872

      I second this – trying to read comments pages today is becoming hell…

    • VampyreSquirrel

      I swear the cold stopped them from being able to function in English.

      • Admiral Chief Blackburn

        Ek sou gehoop het JY sou ten minste ondersteunend wees, maar jy is nes die ander. Dis jammer…

      • Rincearbiterofhumour

        lol

  • Rincearbiterofhumour

    Erm, this is my 3rd win :P

    • HvR – THE Average GAmer

      3 gemmer oorwinnigs = normale oorwinnig

      • Admiral Chief Blackburn

        ROVLKH!

      • Rincearbiterofhumour

        Yeah, speak English boy, difficult to troll when the recipient doesn’t fucking speak crazy :P

        • Admiral Chief Blackburn

          Net omdat jy nie verstaan nie, beteken nie jy kan ons taal beledig nie

          • Rincearbiterofhumour

            bubble and squeek eek eek boing plop

          • Admiral Chief Blackburn

            Daar bevestig jy dit nogmaals

          • Rincearbiterofhumour

            arrrrrr AGRHHHHH RAGHHHHH GAAAAA!

          • HvR – THE Average GAmer

            Ek dink ek sal die volgende Luispeler Kaapstad drink sessie bywoon in khaki kortbroek, khaki groen hemp en vellie hoed en skoene en dan die heeltyd langs Rince sit en met hom Afrikaans praat.

        • Hammersteyn
          • Rincearbiterofhumour

            translate=could give a toss + not (sorry, the meaning of that got a little lost in the translation :)

          • Rincearbiterofhumour
          • Hammersteyn

            LOL

    • McBeanoO

      Trolls like Kim Kardashian always rise to the top but what do they get?

      “You sir, get a No-Prize.”

      • Rincearbiterofhumour

        I’ll take my no prize and thank all the awesome people on LG, my family, and the neighbour’s epileptic budgie.

        • Admiral Chief Blackburn

          Daai budjie klink interessant

          • Rincearbiterofhumour

            die blah blah blink blink

        • CAE9872

          That is not enough thank you’s! Do you not watch American sports? You need to thank:
          – your agent
          – your mother
          – your father
          – your personal sponsors
          – your corporate sponsors
          – the team around you (which you did)
          – the frankly awesomeness of your brain in coming up with that…ahem 6 letters
          – by default your English teacher so you can string words together
          – etc

          100 lines!!!

    • Jedi JJ

      Show off

      • Rinceinantici

        Ha, with the pricks on this site? I think not :)

        • Jedi JJ

          True. OVG is always there to make your comments look humble ;)

          • Rinceinantici

            lol Indeed! He’s actually all happy now that he has a P@4. Not used to it to be honest.

        • Hammersteyn

          You rang?

  • Viking Of Science

    Ek is bietjie jaloers op Rince, ek dog my Gedig was puik…. maar nou ja, dis hoe dit is… met Steve.

    • Admiral Chief Blackburn

      Jou gedig was puik gewees!

    • Anon A Mouse

      Ek dink die feit dat die gedig op die Vrydag was voordat Darryn vlieg, maak dat hy al heeltemal te veel gedrink het en dus nie meer kan reguit sien nie.

      • Admiral Chief Blackburn

        Janee, jy moes daai diamant gister uitgeruk het!

        • CAE9872

          OK you lot – we have 11 languages – where are the other 9…just to totally mess with my brain today!

          • Anon A Mouse

            O a bua SeSotho?

          • CAE9872

            Ja nee…

      • Viking Of Science

        HAHA, wel, as ek die artikel moet glo, sit hy in Port Elisabeth, so ek verwag dat hy al Slinger dronk is… :P

    • Dutch Matrix

      Dis net omdat die klomp wat hier werk ‘n spul rooinekke is wat nie ‘n woord Afrikaans kan praat nie.
      Rassisties, sê ek vir jou!

      • Hammersteyn

        Nee net Genis was, maar die beste beskrywing vir hom was bewsaard.

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

    I see dutchies. They’re everywhere. They walk around like everyone else.

    • Rincearbiterofhumour

      Fitting picture, dealing with dead things and all BOOOOM!

      • Hammersteyn

        Dis piek fyn om dood te gaan. Ons het siele wat aanleef :P

        • Admiral Chief Blackburn

          BOEM!

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

            BLOEM(fontein)

          • Admiral Chief Blackburn

            Lekker koud daar vandag hoor ek

          • Dutch Matrix

            Leeu koud hoor ek. As die bloem-dames so bietjie “aksie” soek is al wat sy te siene kry kop en maanhare…

          • Admiral Chief Blackburn

            Nee selfs kouer as dit, luiperd koud. Net ‘n geritsel tussen die blare

          • HvR – THE Average GAmer

            Sy moet maar een van die maanhare aan die brand steek om hom uit te rook.

          • Admiral Chief Blackburn

            HAHA

          • Dutch Matrix

            Dis die probleem. Sy KAN NIE steek nie…

    • Hammersteyn

      Ons was altyd hier, jy het dit net nie geweet nie.

    • CAE9872

      Whahahaha

    • VampyreSquirrel

      LOL

  • Jedi JJ

    No-Prize for Rince! He must be thrilled

  • MakeItLegal

    Battlefield 4 works ?

    *trolling
