I’m convinced Zoe has evil powers. Earlier this week, we were teasing her extensively. The skies then darkened and a violent storm ensued, accompanied by some glorious hail. Once she had forgiven us, the clouds vanished and the sun appeared once more. What the heck? Coincidence? I THINK NOT!

If any console has had a truly blockbuster year, it has to be the Wii U. You look at the games released this year on that device, and Nintendo was batting for a six all the way, klapping hit after hit out of the park. Super Smash Bros brings the Nintendo 2014 release schedule to a close essentially. And that game is ending the year with a bang.

Welcome young trainer, to the world of Pokémon! I’m sure that you have many questions to ask, such as “Which is the best starter?”, “Are the Legendary Pokémon real?” and “Why are my Pokeballs oozing blood?”. But before I can answer any of those questions without incriminating myself any further, we need to take a look at the review scores for the latest Pokémon game, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

I don’t know how, but Johannesburg has travelled through some freaky dimension door into a realm where the sun doesn’t exist. Seriously, I forgot that that lovable, warm chum looks like! I've got such bad withdrawals that I’ve taken to shining a bright light into the back of my eyeballs. AAAH WHY DOES IT BURN SO MUCH?

Where has this year gone? We are drawing closer and closer to that time where vast amounts of money gets exchanged for gifts that people don’t really want, Boney M on repeat, and large trees that are covered in kitty dreams. What I’m looking forward to most is just winding down and… playing some more games. DON’T JUDGE ME OK!

I’M AFRAID I’VE GOT SOME BAAAAAAAAAD NEWS FOR YOU! WWE 2K15 is promising to revitalise the sports entertainment genre with rivalries, updated rosters and visuals that you can most definitely see. Provided that you’re getting a current-gen version that is. But if you’re stuck with an older console (A running theme today it seems), then you might be in for a WWE game that’s about to lay some Sweet Chin Music on your moderate expectations.

I’ve been feeling tired all week. It’s the result of many late nights thanks to all the games I’ve been playing. Dota? HA! I haven’t touched that beautiful cabbage for a while now. Anyways, these heavy eyelids are quite an annoyance. What would  you recommend I use as an eye opener? Gym klapping? Square dancing? Cat petting? Leave your advice below!

You’ve already read the best coolest acceptable not so bad my review for Bayonetta 2. I hope. Dammit folks, I need this validation! Ahem, but there are other reviews out there. And much like your thoughts on that strange growth that is spreading on your face, it might be time for a second opinion. Which I wholeheartedly recommend doing anyway. So here’s a look at what other people have to say about Bayonetta 2 so far.

OMG it’s rAge weekend! Geoff will be running the ship alone tomorrow (so be sure to give him lots of love) while we head off to The Dome for a showdown of Anchorman proportions with the other gaming media outlets. I’ve got my mace, face, and I’m ready for any kind of beatdown! Dammit Darryn, keep to formation. Sandy, you go first, I swear we’ve got your back. Zoe you just need to… wait, where is she? Is she STILL getting her hair done?

As much as I craved summer, I miss winter just a little already. This heat uses some dark magic which converts the weight of my eyelids into anvils, and only napping seems to fix it. The dreams I have during those brief moments are becoming rather ridiculous. Just yesterday I dreamt that I was late with a review and Geoff told me not to worry about it. I woke up immediately because I knew the concept of Geoff being nice was just absurd!

It’s quite obvious that my Lazygamer rain dance from last week didn’t work. I think if I had just grabbed some more cabbage from Sandy, it would have totally happened! Until then, I’ll be equipping night vision goggles to see through the dust storm that is Jozi at the moment. When did this place become such a desert anyway?

If you’re reading this, then the embargo for Disney Infinity 2.0 has most likely lifted, and reviews are pouring in for the Marvel-centric upgrade to that game. Last year saw the debut of Disney Infinity, and while it wasn’t perfect, the potential to grow was most certainly there. And all I can say is, make mine Marvel.

Spring is in the air. Can you smell it? I certainly can. I can’t stop sneezing! I could really do with a violent bout of rain, which is why I am considering a casual rain dance in my back yard. I have essence of Geoff, shade of Zoe, tear of Darryn,  root of Gavin, and cabbage of Sandy. You have been warned… Lazygamer rains are coming!

It has been a tough week for me. I’ve been fired several times for no real reason, kicked out of my imaginary mansion and into a tiny box for a Sims review, and even been accused of being horrible at rhyming. On the plus side, I still have Sandy as my butler… he just doesn’t know it yet!

It’s the start of another week. You aren’t really keen for it, you just want the weekend to come sooner so you can play games for days. Wait… today is Thursday? Where the hell did the other days run off to? Heck if I know, weekend is basically here!
