People like these, made me a freak..

It's family members and friends who made me the gaming freak that I am.
Its the jealousy I had growing up not having things other kids had.
I remember going to my friends house and he hand hundreds of video games for Atari and NES. Yet I had a copy of street fighter and sonic 2. Great games but weak in comparison to my friends. Hell I used to even have a game for SEGA CD my parents bought me. The thing is I DID NOT EVEN HAVE A SEGA CD and they never returned the game. I used to pop the game in my audio CD player, it would actually play the soundtrack off the disk.

Anyways, heres a video of some pricks giving their kid an Xbox 360.. box.
We have seen videos like this before, but you know what its just wrong. Why prank a kid?
I wouldn't be suprised if this same kid ends up robbing a semi truck with a 1000 Xbox 720s in 3 years. :P .

Gaming Events in '08?

Hey what's up gamers, just got a question to ask. Are you attending any gaming video game events or maybe just geek events? This year there will be more tournaments and small gatherings of gamers popping up more then ever. What have you got your eyes on and would like to attend this year.

Most of my money goes to funding my trips to gaming events. Yeah it sounds dumb but its fun as hell. It becomes an addiction each year. This March I plan on attending Gamers 4 Giving which is a big LAN in Ypsilati, Michigan. They plan on having a big Halo 3 tournament with a 1000$ prize.

After that in mid-April I plan to fly out to Seattle to hit up the Microsoft MVP summit, this is a 4 day event where I get the chance to see the future of Microsoft products. Any questions you guys want me to ask MS when I'm there?

Then of course there is the Penny Arcade Expo towards the end of August. I really don't know how im going to get money for this event, but after going last year it feels like a requirement in '08. I had a ton of fun, but I predict that will cost me nearly a grand.

Childhood flashback #1 - Game Gear


I remember being a little kid and sitting on my brothers bed watching my cousin play his SEGA Game Gear. I was amazed at its bright screen. It was the first time I got to see Sonic in action and I was totally hypnotized by the speed and bright colors in the game. I remember going back in my room and closing my eyes and visualing the game and just wishing I had one..

Years later I eventually got one and I put about 6 mario stickers on it and I eventually lost the battery covers. I still have it today, it works and I still got the some stupid Donald Duck game that I could never beat.

FARKTOID Wins Ron Workmans Stolen Cup. (Baby Eating Poetry Inside)

Congrats Farktoid,I will be in touch with you and get that Ron Workmans stolen Infinity Ward Coffee cup.(Infinity Ward is the studio behind COD4).

For those who havn't paid attention, on Halloween I set up a poetry contest here on my Dtoid community blog. To win you had to write the best baby eating poem. I know it sounds sick. But it was a JOKE, please do not take any of this serious, it was a halloween joke.

Here is Farktoids winning poem.

"I have a child
of whom I will eat.
Where do I start,
the head or the feet?

It goes without saying
that it will cry less
if I start with the head,
but that's quite a mess

The brain and the eyeballs
will form a small lake
and hamper enjoyment
Of my little snowflake.

So I pull out some duct tape
and cover the face
it's still getting air
at a medium pace

I crunch down on the foot
filled with muscle and bone
And say right then wow,
this here baby has tone

I chew and I savor
each tendercrisp bite
when the baby looks at me, I say
it's a'ight.

Your parents were careless
they left you at home
with naught but a babysitter
on her cell phone

I murdered her swiftly
(and stabbed her a bit)
But you, my young child
are my favorite bit.

The kidneys and stomach,
make lovely sweetbread,
but the baby stops moving
as I start on the head.

Oh dear, I do think, picking up the leftovers
The rest will go good with that pizza from Stouffer's.
Your parents are back, and from them I must scurry
for I've made quite a mess and must leave in a hurry.

I'll sneak away quickly,
silent as a mouse,
and plant all the evidence
at Ron Workman's house. "   read

The Blind Painter

The title says, its a blind painter. He gots skills. Somehow he lays down a texture map on canvas before he starts painting. He says he can tell the colors of the paint by their consistency. Interesting....
