    Break that release date Wednesday!! Killzone 2!




    Quick note - the Target next to where I live released Killzone 2 today two days early, so if any of you are chompin' to get it - check Targets and other places because it's weird to release a game on a Friday and obviously some stores just throw it out there with the rest of the stuff.

    Godspeed!!

    New Video: Boosting (1 Problem)

    What up suckas?!

    I thought I'd share with you all my newest video where I try out an energy drink marketed towards athletes and see it's effects on me, a gamer. I'll be honest the video has little to actually do with that.

    We're f*cking pornstars and playing RE5 in Vegas



    If you go to Las Vegas be sure to grab as many cards as you can from www.VegasLoveCards.com (coming soon, I kid you not we bought the domain name).

    Also, If you want to see the height of badassery, play Resident Evil 5 projected on the side of a fucking hotel.

    NVGR Debate to the Death!!!!

    Sorry Fronz, I'm hijacking your shit for a second.

    OK SO - I'm talking with -D- and he said he liked the movie "The Replacements" which in and of itself is terrible. But when I told him I had to go see "The Replacements" when it came out OVER "The Original Kings of Comedy" he disowned me for liking what he thinks is an equally shitty movie.


    THERE WAS A FIRE FIGHT!!!!!! WHICH MOVIE IS BETTER?!?!

    How awful is Brian Crecente you ask? This awful...




    Don't get me wrong, I'm in a cheery mood right now. The Christmas Spirit has bit me on the face. But I just was looking at Kotaku and saw...this.

    Here's my promise to each one of you reading this. I will do something with my life to put myself into a position where I can have this much exposure and NOT suck. It literally pains me to see this and think "I could have made that funny."

    Merry Chridmess!

    The Only Video Game Award You Need to Care About for 2008

    If Fallout 3 doesn't win game of the year then that will just be an absolute travesty. If GTA IV wins game of the year I will go on a homicidal tear.

    But that's not the award you need be concerned about. No sirs. The award I'm referring to is "Best New Character of 2008."

    There is only one choice this year, all other choices are just flat out wrong.





    Seriously, if you don't think Travis Touchdown is the biggest badass in recent video game history, then you clearly hate fun and No More Heroes. Other than Nathan Drake, I can't think of any other video game character I would rather model my life after. Travis Touchdown is a hero to all people and should be given the respect he deserves in the form of this award.



    Travis Touchdown 2008.

    No Punisher Movie for Marvel Fans [NVGR]

    So I wrote this artcile over at Bags and Boards about the Punisher movie franchise and want to know how you clowns feel about it.

    http://bagsandboardspodcast.com/2008/10/20/no-punisher-movie-for-marvel-fans/





    It wasn’t until around the year 1994 that I became acutely aware of The Punisher. In the 14 years in between, the entertainment industry has done nothing but made me sour with putrid hate coursing through my pulsing veins with what they have done with my favorite Marvel hero.

    Frank Castle is the only true embodiment of the meaning of “man.” Sometimes it was all I could do to keep from punching someone in their stupid face when they told me a Chuck Norris fact, as if HE were the definition. A real man isn’t concerned about anything other than justice. Real men don’t have time for high-maintenance over-pampered women. They don’t have time for beers with the guys after work. The only thing they have time for is making sure there is a slug lodged firmly in the skull of every punk degenerate that roams the streets (preferably said street is in New York City or any metropolitan sprawl with tall buildings stacked side by side. Also, loads of steam would be nice.)

    To me, this is like shooting fish in a barrel as far as character development or a story are involved. And yet, I’ve yet to see one single drop of Punisher decency outside the pages of a comic book and it’s driving me insane. I’m not kidding. I just ate a scoop of my cat’s IAMS dry food. It tasted awful but that’s what I do, alright? I’m insane now.

    But in order to regain some sanity I will provide to you, faithful reader, two things that can be done to make the perfect Punisher movie. First, whoever cast Tom Jane in 2005’s “The Punisher” needs to be shot in both legs with a harpoon. No offense to Tom Jane, he was in a couple episodes of “Arrested Development” so that automatically makes him good people, but Frank Castle is a rugged tower of a man who has no soul and feels no emotions other than anger. Jane possesses none of those qualities. The person portraying Castle should also have the voice of a man who has smoked three packs a day since the age of four. But the most important quality that this iteration of The Punisher must have is a face that can tell Frank Castle’s story in one glance. Think of a face that never makes eye contact when talking because they are either too disgusted with you or they don’t even acknowledge your existence. As far as facial hair is concerned, this man is going to need a 9 o’clock shadow.

    The only other piece that is needed is a storyline that is based around one thing: death. Notice I didn’t say “killing.” This is where Hollywood has gone wrong. I haven’t seen “Punisher: War Zone” but it looks like it’s all about killing. I can already tell you that that movie is going to be a steaming pile of garbage. The reason that The Punisher’s story would work so well in a movie is because deep down all of us love what he does. To make it even better, it’s a story that could easily happen in real life. You can’t tell me that if you picked up your local newspaper and saw a front page story about a guy who had blown the head off a druglord with a sawed off shotgun, that you wouldn’t think that justice had been served, and that you weren’t just a little happy. Then, the next day if you read another story about a group of three pedophiles found dead and castrated, wouldn’t you start getting the feeling that someone was actually doing SOMETHING about the filth in our society?

    It’s these emotions that the entire Punisher franchise our founded upon, and yet, not one filmmaker has come forward to knock this slow-pitch softball out of the park.

    The IMDB of Rock Band DLC



    Rock Band DLC is a beast. It's one of the best things to ever happen to video games, ever. However, I've always been slightly disappointed in the lack of cohesion that the songs have as far as getting information on them online. The official Rock Band site is alright, but it tends to be out of date a lot.

    Well, no more worries because in comes RBDLC. This site is a great start to something that could be much, much more. Users can review the DLC songs so you can get an idea of how fun a song is before you lay down those sweet M$ points.

    However, my real reason for bringing this to your attention are the ratings. Particularly, the songs that are rated with 5 stars I'm having an issue with. It would seem that one demographic is rating these songs and that would be the 13-18 year old crowd that hears loud music and fast guitars and goes, "HOLLLLLYYYYY SHHHHIIIIIITTTTTTTTT that is AWESOME!"

    So good people of Destructoid, I request that you sign up, rate your favorite songs, and spread the word of this site so that we may balance out the order of quality DLC in the universe.

    Rock Band 3-Song Dream DLC Pack - Volume 5: Harvey Danger



    In light of the song "Cream and Bastards Rise" being available as Rock Band DLC, I've decided to do focus more on Harvey Danger.


    Disclaimer: This is not real, it's just what I know would be awesome

    Unfortunately, not a lot of people actually know Harvey Danger when you tell them the name. You have to play "Flagpole Sitta" for them until they can register who it actually is. If you are one of those people that is going, "Wtf? Harvey Danger?" then lend me your ear.

    Harvey Danger - Flagpole Sitta



    Alright, so, yeah this is a good song even if it's still play on the radio everyday. Dare I say it's a classic? It's not an overall hard song to play, the most challenging aspect of it I would imagine to be the vocals. But if you're gonna make a Harvey Danger pack, you gotta have this song.

    Harvey Danger - Save It For Later



    This isn't an original song of theirs BUT, their version is better than the original which was done by English Beat. This song was released on the soundtrack for "200 Cigarettes" about 6 months after "Flagpole Sitta" was a hit. It's a fun song!

    Oh, and since Universal is such a cockbag, I can't directly embed the music video, but if you want to see it click here.

    Harvey Danger - Private Helicopter



    Click Here for the real music video

    I'm on a private helicopter with my favorite ex-girlfriend. If memory serves, this song was the other followup to "Flagpole Sitta". Also, just like that song, this is easy to play with the only real struggle most likely being the vocals. If this is the most you have ever listened to Harvey Danger then do yourself a favor and check out "Where Have All The Merrymakers Gone?" alone with "Little By Little" which "Cream and Bastards Rise" is on and it just came out this week as DLC.

    SUPPORT A GOOD BAND!

    Here's the video:

    AC/DC Rock Band non-DLC Details Revealed

    The first word that comes to mind here is "ouch." As in, "Ouch! $40 dollars is a lot of money to delve out on 18 songs!" But to me, the real ouch is that you can't cherry-pick the songs you want out of this pack.

    That's right, if you want this pack you have to go all in or nothing. Go big or go home, as we say in the world of male modeling. I'm not a huge AC/DC fan - I know like 7 or 8 of their songs and that's it. So if there was anyone else out there like me that was planning on just downloading songs like, "Hells Bells," "TNT," and "Dirty Deeds," well then we can cry together.
