The good, the bad and the ugly of the past week - 08 July 2016
Portugal made it to the final of Euro 2016? How the hell did that even happen? MAGIC – Cristiano Ronaldo is actually a wizard. Here’s hoping he casts a few EXPECTO PATROGOAL spells in the final against France!
Finally, Red Dead Redemption got some backward compatibility. This news seems to have made gamers very, very happy. Me? I don’t know what the fuss is about – I’ve not yet played the western. And on that note, I’m off to mount my horse and ride off into the sunset before people find me and murder me.
The Witcher 3 is getting a GOTY edition next month. Perhaps it’s time I got around to playing the game? I think so! Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to mount my horse and ride off into the sunset before people find me and murder me. Again.
In other excellent news, a South African team is off to Sweden to spend some time making their game, Kingdom in the Sky, a reality. Hooray!
Lastly, Evolve is going free to play. Hopefully this gives the game some new life – it’s the model it should’ve had in the first place (in my opinion).
Look I’ve been away, so I’m not completely up to speed with this CS:GO gambling drama. Whatever is going on, it sounds horrible, so I’m putting it here is a terrible story.
In other bad news, people out there are selling tools that give players an unfair advantage in Overwatch. Blizzard are trying to take action, but they’re not having any luck it seems.
Ever wanted to know how to pronounce Huawei? Watch Darryn attempt that tongue twister for a solid 8 minutes (while unboxing their latest device). That, or you could tune into a Summer Games Done Quick marathon instead. OR you could read about Darryn’s quest for Pokemon. SO MANY CHOICES!
Call of Duty nearly had an iteration set in ancient Rome? Apparently so! The project never went further than the prototype stage however.
Want some truly random news? There’s a DC comic called KFC: The Colonel Corps, that’s all about… you wouldn’t believe me if I told you. Go read the article and prepare to have your mind blown.
Holy crap, Darryn isn’t Owlman too? Amazing – well done Kervyn for making it so!
This fourth of July header by Darryn is just perfect. Eagle? Check. Murica? Check. Explosions? Check.
Another year, another MSSA vs SA Community battle. That article garnered 118 comments!
Comment of the week comes from the very same article (the MSSA vs SA Community battle). Pariah, you win friend!
This Suicide Squad is just a teeny bit too literal…
Oh Ozzy Man, you always make me giggle…
