Fanboy Friday: Retared Anime Edition

As I told you last week, we're going to be looking at the drama surrounding the dual release of Final Fantasy XIII. Rather than focus on all the score whining, we'll just be looking at the console battles between the 360 and PS3 fanboys. Li...

Fanboy Friday: Cult of Denial edition

As I'm sure most of you remember, earlier this week the Playstation 3 suffered a little accident. At the time, people were understandably upset. You also might remember that a lot of the 360 fanboys were having a field day, claiming that th...

Fanboy Friday: Sexbox 1080

Alright. I feel like I'm fully recovered now. Let's get this show on the road. This week, we'll be taking a trip back to YouTube, but not to look at videos. Instead, we'll look at what people have to say about the recent release of Bioshock...

Fanboy Friday: Bandana Mask Edition

It's time for another video roundup! It's been a while since we've seen what all the kids with webcams were up to, so let's check in. ...ok, I'll be honest. I haven't fully recovered from doing Heavy Rain last week, so I'm taking the easy w...

Fanboy Friday: When it rains, it pours

I spent a long time this week of thinking how exactly I wanted to cover Heavy Rain. Originally, my plan was to just look at the lowest reviews and look at all the people whining, but that wasn't very exciting. It was mostly just the same ol...

Fanboy Friday: Tard Head Edition

It's always interesting when an older Japanese game finally makes it out West, as was the case with White Knight Chronicles this week. I remember hearing the game being hyped back when I bought my PS3, but I quickly forgot about it since th...

Fanboy Friday: '12 year old mustache' Edition

The biggest release this week, in my opinion, has been Mass Effect 2. (Although a lot of other good games came out this week as well! Solid week for gaming!) It's been getting stellar reviews across the board, and everyone I've talked to wh...

Fanboy Friday: Hammerin' Hero Edition

It's time for the once-a-month fanboy video post! It's mostly what you'd expect -- a bunch of stupid kids making videos of themselves, and in one instance breaking some expensive electronics. If anyone knows what drives these people to publ...

Fanboy Friday: Num-nut Edition

Many of you have been playing the MAG beta, and if the reactions from the IRC regulars are any indication, it's been decent so far. Not everyone has been having a good time with it, though. If random strangers on the internet are correct, i...

Fanboy Friday: Turbo Nerd Edition

I was happily browsing the internet this morning, taking a look at some regular game forums to see what people were talking about. I was expecting a lot of trash talking about Bayonetta, but I was surprised when the big thread of the day on...

Fanboy Friday: 2010's Least Anticipated Games Edition

Fanboy Friday had to take a short hiatus over the holidays, but we're back and ready to go for the new year. To help ring in the start of a new decade of idiocy, this week I want to look at a few of the upcoming titles for 2010 and see what...

Fanboy Friday: Quantum Theory Edition

This close to the holidays, there's not much going on in the way of new releases. Instead, fanboys use December to argue and fight about trivial pieces of news. This week, we'll be taking a look at a video response from each side to the ear...

Fanboy Friday: Blueway Edition

So, this one website has been doing comparison videos between the 360 and PS3. They've broken up the whole series into sections, such as one about games, one about CPUs, etc. So far it's been pretty balanced, with each console "winning" an ...

Fanboy Friday: Xcoxucka Edition

In case you didn't hear, the Spike VGAs are coming up, featuring the fabulous Nick Chester as a judge. If you haven't voted yet, you can head right on over here and vote. While you're voting, take a look at the nominees. Do you notice anyth...

Fanboy Friday: Floppy Edition

You might think that this week would obviously be about Modern Warfare 2. It's not. I am so sick of the news this week revolving around that game that I couldn't bring myself to read through all the reviews and YouTube videos about it. Sorr...

Fanboy Friday: Bioware Bonus Edition

This week, we'll be taking a look at a review for Dragon Age. While there's a little bit of complaining about scores, it's really more about the bickering that happens between 360 and PS3 owners. IGN rated the two console versions the same,...

Fanboy Friday: Tin Foil Edition

It's time for another video post! You know the drill by now -- just random idiotic videos people have decided to throw on the internet of them bitching and whining about the consoles they don't own/like and the people who play them. Hit the...

Fanboy Friday: Ancient Art of the Fist Edition

I don't think we'll be getting anything that will top last week's Uncharted 2 edition for a while, but we have some decent material this week to tide you over.I think everyone knew what was going to happen when the 360 version of Bayonetta ...

Fanboy Friday: F*cktarted 2

You all knew this was coming. Despite the ridiculous amount of games that have been released in the last few days, this column could really only be about one thing.Uncharted 2.Let's do it.

Fanboy Friday: Keep it real PUNKS!

My new addiction this week has been Demon's Souls. It's so difficult, but so rewarding. Last night I actually fell asleep playing it because I stayed up too late, and by falling asleep I ran myself off the edge of a tower and lost all my so...

Fanboy Friday: This or a prostitute?

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story has been out for a couple weeks, but people are still talking about it. I've been playing it every night ever since I picked it up, and it's been a pretty fantastic experience. It also, unsurprisingl...

Fanboy Friday: TGS Stupidity Extravaganza

While a lot of times I like to show YouTube videos, what I don't often show is YouTube comments. If you're new to the internet, you know that YouTube commenters are pretty much fished out of the bottom of the internet cesspool. Nowhere else...

Fanboy Friday: Bill Gates is a gay

As regular readers of the column know, about once a month I like to do a little YouTube roundup of all the fanboys who are actually brave/stupid enough to go around making videos of themselves. It's that time again, so get ready. What's bee...

Fanboy Friday: Falling out of the turnip truck

Hi everyone! I'm sure you missed me terribly last week, but now that I've recovered from Swine Flu we're back and ready to rock. This week I've stumbled across a website that got a hands-on with ODST recently. What did they have to say abou...

Fanboy Friday: Stupids comment like a five years old

Hello friends! Earlier this week Batman: Arkham Asylum came out. It's been getting really good reviews! IGN gave both the 360 and PS3 versions a 9.3, because they never do separate reviews for multiplatform releases unless the game is funda...

Fanboy Friday: Mothereffing Superstars

Shadow Complex has come out. Shadow Complex is fun. Shadow Complex got a 9.4 on IGN. Predictably, some people have a huge problem with this. Sure, it's not perfect and it's got some glitches, but it's solid entertainment -- I spent 3 hours ...

Fanboy Friday: Ur damned souls

The Final Fantasy games have a very rabid and diverse fanboy base. There are some who consider the games to be the pinnacle of RPGs. Some people can't stop jizzing over the games' music. Some people are still writing fanfiction about Cloud,...

Fanboy Friday: We don't need another tard

In case you missed yesterday's news, John Carmack recently announced that the current build of Rage, a game is still in production and won't be coming out for at least another year, runs at only 20-30 fps on the PS3 while the PC and 360 ver...
