Once again, I’ve been left all alone in the Lazygamer office. All alone, to wonder if any of Geoff’s stuff is flammable. Like his collection of rare Skylanders. How did this Zippo lighter get in my hand? And why am I telling you all this a full hour after everything went up in flames? I guess that some men just want to see the world burn.
You can not miss these
Oh Sweden, you do so many things right. Paid maternity leave for what, a year? And paternity leave. And the government will pay for you to have a day at the spa because, you know, you need to relax. Now, politicians are settling their differences in an eSports match, just in time for elections.
Tis the season, to get cheap games, tralalalala! Right now, Sony is busy with an Easter sale of note, with various discounts on several big name games and plenty of indies. Of course, they’re not the only game in town, as Microsoft is also ready to crowbar your wallet open.
With J Stars Victory Versus Sumthin’ no longer on my radar, I need a new anime game to focus on. Right now, my eye is on that mentally-retarded, constantly hungry and good-hearted Pirate King contender Monkey D Luffy. And it looks like he’ll have a helluva boss fight to battle through in his next game.
Dark Souls II isn't just about dying, I swear. There is actually a lot of lore, and strategy, and moments of glory. Of course, there is also a lot of dying, and stats are showing just how you all are failing to survive.
Halo theme composer and Maestro Chief Marty O’Donnell is no longer a Bungie employee, as the audio wizard has just been terminated by the company.
I really enjoy playing against bots in League of Legends - Co-op vs AI can be a really fun mode. It seems I'm not the only one who feels this way; even experienced players frequently play against bots. Now, Riot is tinkering with the bots to meet player demands.
The gaming backlog. We all have it, that pile of shame and neglect. Hell, I’ve got one that I’ve barely made a dent in since I started using Steam heavily a few years ago. In fact, I’ve only just started playing Company of Heroes, and I’ve had that game since THQ was alive. And it looks like I’m not the only person with some catching up to do.
Because our public holidays carry over, this coming Monday will be a day that doesn’t involve getting up early, the daily commute or hurriedly walking around the office with a stack of papers so it looks like you’re actually busy working. Instead, it’s a day to spend with family, or as the case may be, playing lots of video games. Just beware, PlayStation gamers; there may or may not be PSN maintenance on Monday.
I’m cautiously optimistic about the new virtual reality revolution. I’ve had some eyeballs-on time with the Rift, and while it wasn’t quite there it was an interesting experience. With Sony set to introduce its own virtual reality headset targeted at its consoles, maybe this time the fad will actually catch on. Oculus rift founder Palmer Luckey believes it’ll do more than just catch on. In the future, he posits, it will replace TV’s entirely.
