In Other News – 15 February 2013 Weekend Edition

ION15022013

Man. It’s been a mental, and awful week. These are some pretty dark times, and South Africa’s big in the news for all the wrong reasons – but it’s the weekend, and we need to look forward to the positive. Unfortunately, I’m a really grumpy, cynical bastard and I’ve got nothing. Nothing at all. Go home week, you’re drunk.

In Other News: More downloads for your Universe, massively multiplayer ghosts in shells, Sony’s got an eye on the Eyepad, get infinite slicing for gratis, and Grant Hinds has an issue with Game Jernalolisms.

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

Don't stop now.... you're having a good time

    OK. I have just had a conversation with an EVE fan. It kind of makes us gamers look like total noobs. The dude of who I just spoke to knows me from the last 2 years of trolling LG.

    EVE…….what a story. We are talking huge amounts of real time money that make WOW look like ZELDA on-line. We are talking HUGE factions over 10 years with builders, miners, scouts and 7 months worth of building to create a FUCKING HUGE TITAN.

    I only just heard of this battle but in order to belong to EVE one has to belong to a faction in order to survive. Well this person accendently warped ones self into a worm hole and got killed. In the process a whole squadron of 5 titans and $$$$$$$$$ dollors worth of real time money was all killed in 5 minutes.

    Can annybody clariffy ???

    Just imagine spending 3 years being a minor and you are drunk one night. you accendently press the wrong button and warp into somebodys worm hole to get killed. But you have 5 years worth of builders behind you to come and back you up.

    The battle cost both sides but it was worth it 70 000 dollars later…..5 titans killed in 5 minutes.

    Now this is real money auction house on overload. We are talking $$$$$$$$

    Fcuk WOW and DIEABLO3. This is real life bitches.

    • OVG

    We need more of you…

  • OVG

    THIS IS WHY I BECAME A GAMER…..1989 YOU LITTLE SHITS. HAND EYE COORDINATION.

    • OVG

      Oh that horrible wall jump…THE WALL JUMP BITCHES…

      • OVG

        I died and died and died and died and died.

        No Catwomen DLC. No extra skins. No extra levels. no FUCKING SHIT….JUST 2button and your own wits.

        and some kick ass music….Because while you blue hedgehog freaks were pissing about with a screwy gay blue spiky Ecco the Dolphin i was kicking boomerang butt.

        The first game to teach me fast hand eye coordination.

        • OVG

          FUCKING SEGA. EXPLAINS WHY WE STILL HAVE TO PUT UP WITH YOUR SHIT GAMES. ALIENS IS NO EXCEPTION.

        • Willjam
