The good, the bad and the ugly of the last week – 25 July 2014

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives… or some mumbo jumbo like that. Hey it’s weekend! You overslept and missed every day? Don’t worry, we have your weekly wrap right here!

Dark Souls 2: Crown Of The Sunken King DLC Review Round-Up

So, you think that you’ve seen all that Dark Souls 2 has to offer, do you? Ha! I laugh at you! I laugh to the max! You have yet to face the dreaded Lazygamer Boss, a creature of unrivalled attitude, sloth and beer belly fat attacks! There’s no hope for success and hey what are you doing near our gem of power, stay away from that don’t hit it NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

The International: Chinese teams dominating

Phase 2 of The International is now well underway, with many more games being played throughout the night (our time). Yesterday's games really mixed up the group standings, showing that the Chinese are looking to be dominant this year.

Borderlands 2 PS Vita Review Round-Up

Here at Lazygamer.net (A proud partner of Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated), we’re all massive fans of Borderlands 2. We’ve sunk dozens and dozens of hours into the game collectively, and the idea of some Borderlands on the go is actually rather intriguing. So what’s the game like then? Rather crap it seems.

April Fools gaming news round-up

April Fools is like Christmas for writers. It’s an excuse to exercise some creative talent, while an old Scrooge in the comments section yells bah humbug at everything posted. There’s a lot of great content posted on the first day of April. But this was some of the best.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition review round-up

What’s new is old again, amirite? Tomb Raider hit shelves last year on various consoles and PC to widespread acclaim. Nearly a year later, and the game is back in action, with some new-gen shine. Here’s what the critics have to say.

Rayman Legends is legendary, say critics

One of my most eagerly anticipated games of forever, Rayman Legends, is out on the US today and in the rest of the world of Friday. Sequel to the terribly endearing and delightfully difficult Rayman Origins, it’s got some rather big disembodied shoes to fill. According to critics, it’s done just that.

Disney Infinity review round-up – To Infinity and beyond

Disney Infinity may have launched already in the good ol’ US of A, but surprisingly, few sites have actually reviewed the game. I’m forking out some of my own cash for a starter pack, so expect videos and impressions soon. If you can’t wait for my humbly influential opinion though, here’s what those other websites had to say about the game.

Star Trek Review Round Up – The wrath of Khan’t play it

Video games. The final frontier. These are the adventures of the SS Lens Flare. It’s ongoing mission: To chart the co-op of the new Star Trek video game. To boldly go where no noob has gone before. DAAAA DA DA DA! DA DA DA DAAAAAA DA DA!

April Fools games industry joke round-up

While we had our own bit of fun yesterday with an obvious April Fools joke, we weren’t the only folks around that decided to join in on that annual tradition of pretending to be the Daily Mirror. The gaming industry has had a long-standing habit of throwing a few bones our way over the year, and yesterday was no different. Here’s a look at what fooled who.

Castlevania: Mirror of Fate review round-up

Can it be? A game worth having on the ailing Nintendo 3DS? While I’m keeping mine solely as a Pokemon machine right now (PI PIKACHU!), it looks like the latest Castlevania game might be worth blowing the dust off of that handheld console for. Here’s what the critics are saying so far.

Crysis 3 review round-up

Two years after Crysis 2 was released to groaning under-equipped PCs, and it’s time for part trois to once again set a few 3D benchmarks on fire. The scores are in, and the general consensus is that Crysis 3 is one purdy looking game overall. Here’s a look at what the critics who got the game before us are saying.

Dead Space 3 Review Round Up

The third chapter in “Oh crap nononono gross necromorphs I want my mommy” or Dead Space 3, may only be out on Friday for us European consumers, but that doesn’t mean that other territories aren’t jamming a plasma cutter right now. North American gamers got their hands on the trilogy-capper yesterday, just in time for some review scores to go live. So what kind of game is Dead Space then?

Ni No Kuni Review round-up – It’s a winner

Dammit, I swore on the grave of that hobo that I did not run over while partying with three attractive friends one fateful night that I would never play JRPG’s again! Who wants an engrossing story and a massive open world filled with epic magical battles, huh? And then along came Ni No Kuni, a game with freakin’ powerhouse visuals from the Studio Ghibli brand. And according to early reviews, it’s good. Damn good.

The Lazygamer Awards 2012 – Round up edition

And with another year of gaming over and done with, we’ve celebrated the best of the best, in that digital domain. If you missed out on any of those awards though, or just feel like posting more comments about how Call of Duty Black Ops 2 should have won Best Game not about shooting people in the face, then here’s a list of all the posts which featured a shiny awards banner.
