One week left till Christmas! We are pretty much done here at Lazygamer - tomorrow will be news free, filled to the brim with our award posts instead. I’ve got my tux ready, my hair maintained, and my teeth brushed. I’ll be presenting a few of those highly coveted statues myself! I’m having a huge after party on my paid-for-review yacht… er… at my place! See you there at the harbour!

Ever been so caught up in a game that you lost track of time? That was rhetorical, of course you have! It happened to me last night while I was playing Final Fantasy X. The night was not-so-young and I had saved, but I wanted to go just a teeny bit further. Next thing I know, BAM BOSS FIGHT. This wasn’t just any boss though… three forms, one glitch involving a party member disappearing, and 40-45 Phoenix Downs later, I finally won! It was exhausting, taking well over an hour to complete. Moral of the story? BLITZBALL, MON!

Why do we fall, master Croft? So that we may pick ourselves up…AND RISE! Oh wait, crap, wrong Tomb Raider game. Still! The year is almost done, and a few gems are starting to surface. Gems that are smaller, but no less ambitious than the triple-A blockbusters that have been released so far this year. And it looks like a certain Tomb Raider is once again proving to be a force to be reckoned with.

I’ve been abandoned…abandoned I tell you! Zoe and Darryn have been struck down by the almighty Eskom (who literally took away their power), Geoff has run off to live his life (pffft), Gavin is MIA (probably off drinking beer), and Sandy is on a flight back to Jhb (from Hipsterland). Looks like I’m alone on this lonely ship today, I hope I can keep it afloat!

My Christmas wishlist just keeps getting bigger and bigger it seems, so best I get my order in now before it’s too late. Dear Santa. I want every console I don’t own, a new PC, and a new giant kitty scratch post for Lupin. That doesn’t sound like too much, right? Xoxo love Cabbage Boy.

It’s Thanksgiving Day in America, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t be thankful right here in South Africa. I would just like to say thanks to Geoff for not taking my life (yet), thanks to the community for being awesome and not voting me “worst intern ever” in this year’s annual intern awards, and thanks to Steam for destroying my wallet… AGAIN!

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?
