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: 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: Official Fanboys

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...

Fanboy Friday: I heared the game is not that good

Another week, another game review. As I'm sure you all know, Battlefield 1943 recently came out for both PSN and XBLA. As is IGN's policy, the two versions of the game get a copy/pasted identical review, presumably to prevent fanboy wars fr...

Fanboy Friday: Less QQ please

It's weeks like these where I'm reminded how the smallest, slightest thing can set fanboys off into a spiraling whirlwind of bitching, whining, and (presumably) self-loathing. This week is going to be a little bit shorter than usual, but th...

Fanboy Friday: New Orphus edition

Ahh, the 4th of July weekend. A Friday off from my day job, fireworks, parties, and fanboys. It's been a relatively slow news week for the video game industry, but, fanboys will still find something to whine about. If it's not a game announ...

Fanboy Friday: Dixaxis In Your Arse Edition

As I mentioned a few weeks back, Wii owners have been relatively quiet. With the 360 and PS3 fanboys going at each other's throats non-stop, the Wii guys have been able to sit back and enjoy their games without being bothered, and since the...

Fanboy Friday: Commercial Tool edition

Here we are, the last week before E3. The last few weeks have been pretty thin on the fanboy ravings, if only because it's been a terrible news month in general. No big games have come out, no major announcements have been made, and everyon...
