The Big Bang Theory is a “comedy” show that basically gets its humour from saying nerdy things in a sentence and then using canned laughter to make it a generic “funny” moment. I do like a few of the older episodes, but now shuffling its way onto Season 10, I got very annoyed. So much so that I told my friend, who just so happens to think that this is the best show ever.
I issued her a challenge. For every episode of The Big Bang Theory, I could name an entire Comedy TV Show that you could watch instead. All nine seasons, every episode, a different TV Show for each.

I think as a game collector, there’s nothing more annoying than the amount of sports games available on pretty much every console. It’s extraordinary, most of these game series’ have been around since the early days of the Atari and Commodore 64 and have made it all the way to the current generation of gaming.
But why am I making a Ewan Rant’s about this? It seems completely harmless, sport games provide lots of fun and entertainment every year for millions globally. You hopefully picked out two words there.
“Every” and “year”.

Considering the only image I could find on Google was a low res image that just said the words “Digital Homicide”, I think we’re all in for a treat. In short, these silly buggers tried to sue Jim Sterling. For $10 Million. Oh dear we are in trouble.

This is something that made me almost as mad as Five Nights at Freddy’s and Payday 2 did. My God there’s so much to talk about yet I’m not sure where to start. I’ll just crack on I suppose. This might be a long one considering how much shit they’ve pulled in the past few years.
