Fanboy Friday: Quantum Theory Edition


Dec 11
// Aerox
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 ...

Fanboy Friday: Blueway Edition


Dec 04
// Aerox
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 consol...

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...

Fanboy Friday: Bioware Bonus Edition


Nov 06

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, but Gamespot gave the PS3 version 0.5 more points than the 360 version! Who's right?!

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 jump and let's get started.

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 versio...

Fanboy Friday: Keep it real PUNKS!


Oct 09

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...

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...

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 cesspoo...

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 been going on on YouTube this month?Hit the jump to find out.

Fanboy Friday: Stupids comment like a five years old


Aug 28
// Aerox
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 fundamentally different. You would think that would be a good way to keep fanboy arguments to a minimum, right?Wrong!

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...

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 fanficti...

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...

Jul 10

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 tha...

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 no...
