In Other News – 25 February 2013

Man, that was a crap Friday. We’ve obviously pissed someone off enough to try and murder and the site, but who? Sony? Nintendo? Maybe it was one of the old popes. Or the ghost of Louis Luyt. Hell, it could even be Peter Molyneux, who actually foloowed on with that promise to make us rue the day we ever insulted him. Which makes for a first from him. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH SNAP!

In Other News: Microsoft is a persona non grata in the raid, Battlefield is going next-gen duh, Minecraft updates, Oscar and Razzie results, it costs $150 000 to make a video game character, Armoured Core begins a verdict to the west and Ultima is Forever on iOS.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because we were too busy buying a Chippendale surprise cake for a certain upcoming birthday party.

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.

    Chippendale cake? Happy bday soon Yolanda, or is it for one of the boys…….

    • LordCaptainAwesomeness

      Probably for the Wookie

        For Brenda…

          My guess is… a certain Asian Sensation is inching closer to middle-age :D

    Lady looks like a dude.

      No

    • Deon Steyn

      I’d still hit that.

    • HvR

      That is why I never like that pose, there is always the unexpected snake in the box jumping out at you.

      • HvR

        Shiiiiit, just translated my own comment to afrikaans …. LOL….up vote self.

      • Admiral Chief Erwin

        XD snake in the box

      Man, I hate saying bad things about girls, because I look like an arab hobbit… (and I damn well know it…) but yeah, the poor girl does have some “manly” facial features. It’s weird she looks a bit like Steven Tyler, which is strange because his offspring, is one of the most stunning women alive. I love you Liv Tyler…

      You Asians and your lady boy fantasies.

    • Admiral Chief Erwin

      He is a woman

  • Darth_Clericus_The_Ultimate

    If you see a girl with only a first name, and search for her on the net while at work….
    You are going to have a bad time

    • Deon Steyn

      i sit in the corner :P

    • Banana Jim

      Mr Cleric, please report to your manager for a disciplinary. It seems you have been googling naughty pictures again….

  • FoxOneZA

    So Crysis 3 only work on a DirectX 11 card but it can run on a console?

    She kinda looks like my sister’s friend…

    Do not cry at Skyrim story *sob*

    • OVG

      I concur. Games can be more than just recreation. Adam Sandler used it to bury his emotions in this film Reign Over Me.

        lovely stuff, always get them goosey bumps watching that. But Indeed man, It’s what I have always felt and a view that will never change. I sound like a broken record sometimes but it pains me as much as it frustrates me at how video games are perceived. A safe Haven for the broken viewed as a training ground for the demented…I think stories like the Skyrim one need to be shown more and deserves it’s own article. We need to show more of the positive side of gaming. and more gaming sites need to blow up positive gaming news.
