Want to play Brutal Legend tonight?

So I happen to have an extra Demo code for PS3 and since I have no PS3 wielding friends, I'm gonna give it away to one lucky dtoider who is on the fence about getting the game and didn't pre-order. Unfortunately this is US only as the code states it only works in the US, sorry my overseas comrades. Anyways, to make this easy and painless, 10th commenter gets the code, leave your email if it's not on your profile and to be fair to everyone you can only comment once. PS3 Demo goes live tonight at 11pm PST, bullshit I know, and fuck you 360 people who got yours earlier today.   read

Steam Cards now working, s-blog.

So I e-mailed Niero about using the steam cards from for the steam id's as just the steam username displaying looked baron next the shiny new PSN ID's and live cards. Lo and behold the great robot master agreed and so he did it! As you can see I haven't been playing enough steam lately, I should get on that.

Oh and just so everyone can be happy here are some boobs.

Haul of Awesome Sauce

I think I may be the luckiest person alive right now considering what I just found at my local Goodwill. But before I get into that let me show you the latest stuff I've found in the last few months. Most of this stuff I got at Ed Mckays used books. Which I doubt anyone outside of North Carolina knows about since they only have about 5 stores in the state itself mostly in major cities.

First up we have some PS2 games I've been wanting to get my hands on, the first 2 I actually had to acquire from playasia, the 3rd I found at gamestop.

Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix +, Final Fantasy X International, and God Hand(Another amazing Clover title).

Next up we've got some PSX games mostly were cheap($5-$10), all but one were acquired at Ed Mckays.

Legend of Dragoon, Jade Cocoon, Final Fantasy VII GH :*(, Final Fantasy VII International(PlayAsia) :D, Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy IX, Vandal Hearts, and NO ONE CAN STOP MR. DOMINO!!!!!! :D

Oh and this.


Now on to the good stuff, I hit up my local goodwill earlier today, noticed they had a box with a Dreamcast in it and a stack of games all selling for $45. Well I'm broke as fuck right now and I already own a Dreamcast so I asked if I could just purchase some of the games, they said it was a package deal but I was welcome to ask the manager so you bet your ass I did, he of course says sure $4 a game. I'm thinking holy shit yes.. because my friends.. this is what was in that box of awesome... The first 2 games I grab are

Sonic Adventure and Grandia II! Both complete with manuals and the discs are in mint condition. Gradia II even has a soundtrack cd which I didn't even know so that was a nice bonus.

Then I looked through some more... and holy fuck..... HOLY FUCK........

I could hardly believe what I just saw, I almost half expected the cases to have the wrong game in them. BUT HOLY SHIT $4 a piece!!! Both of these go for upwards of $50-70 on ebay, I saw the PS2 version of MVC2 at Gamestop a month ago and it was $75 used, had to be the most expensive used game I've ever come across at Gamestop! WHO WOULD GIVE THESE AWAY!? Obviously a very naive person.   read

In case anyone missed it, Avon has a new skin care product, watch the commercial below.


Anyone notice anything familiar about that ad?

Latest haul, Genesis edition.

I love the Sega Genesis, I never owned one as a kid but always wanted one. If you read my previous blog you would see I just recently picked up a Genesis and a nice haul of games still in their boxes with manuals at my local good will. Well today I decided to drop into Ed Mckays (local used everything store) and another treasure trove of Genesis games awaited me!

First up we have all 3 Phantasy Star's released for the Genesis still in the boxes with manuals. all for about $8 each.

I figured that's all I'm buying don't see anything else worth owning. Then I happen to glance down at the bottom of the shelf and see these...

I almost shit my pants, ROCKET KNIGHT FUCKING ADVENTURES AND GHOULS 'N GHOSTS!!!!!! The fond memory I have of these 2 games is immense, I've beaten RKA more times than I can count but its one of the best games ever made. I've never beaten Ghouls 'N Ghosts unfortunately that game is for masochists, but it still doesn't change that fact that its damn fun. RKA was priced at a reasonable $8 and GNG was $6.

Oh and where the fuck can I have these!?

Damn you year 2009, where is my time machine so I can go back to 1993 and fill out this mail order form and get me some Sparkster swag.   read

I love comments. (NVGR)

So I was finished for the night looking at all the new dtoid stuff when I decided to head over to to see what the top stories were. The #1 story right now is still that lesbian who got banned from xbox live. It's the 1up article of it. There is this one guy in the comments who is so fucking funny it had to be posted here.

n0gar starts his post out as most narrow minded bigots do, name calling, derogatory terms.

"You cocksuckers and cock sympathisers need to sop using blacks as an excuse for your sick causes. Gays are a behavioral problem, not an actual people. I als wish that whites would stop trying lump no good gays in with black people - in fact, leave black people out of this faggot talk altogether! There is no comparison at all."

I'm thinking ok the usual dumb ass, not to mention this article had nothing to do with a gay male but I see the relation I guess. But the next paragraph is pure fucking gold.

"Jews control the media, so they have instructed all peoples on TV and radio to respect gays for one reason and one reason only - Jews want gay dollars, which is quite a bit. Greed is the reason for all of this pro gay shit. Now that the Jews have used Obama (to have as the face of Communism) to further move this country toward a sociaist society (controlled by Jews since they controll the privately owned Federal Reserve and all bank in the US and the world. Who cares if a bank or two goes under?), we will be like the Soivets were. The US can only fall from within as no outside enemy can bring it down."

Now I'm thinking wtf a jew conspiracy, what does that have to do with anything!? Oh I see they want gay dollars, guess I've been out of the loop or something didn't realize the homosexual community had their own currency.

"So fuck faggots as they only get this momentum from Jews to help destablize the US socially. Notice how the media still trains you to hate backs and SOME hispanics, but to love gays and never talk about Jews. They tell you to hate arabs/Muslims, but at the same time respect them! Wake up! Life is more than just a videogame. In the US, you can no longer go to armed civil wars since too many people have guns. Instead, they do it behind the scenes adn stage events while TV tells you how to think, but not that you should think."

Then he goes on to claim that jews killed JFK and if Obama were ever assassinated it will be the jews who did it. The whole article and comments are here.   read

Why Goodwill is f***ing awesome.

So I was in the area the other day and decided to stop in my local Goodwill not really expecting to find anything and low and behold I find this shit... why someone would throw away such awesome things is beyond my comprehension!

All this was wrapped in packing tape with a $40 price tag... how could I resist! Not ever owning a Genesis in my life I felt the need to expand my retro collection.

Then I saw these babies behind the glass for a couple bucks a peice, sure they are all mostly shovelware aside from gargoyles which no its not based on the old disney cartoon. Just noticed now its hard to make out what the gameboy games are, from left to right: Duck Tales, Capcom Gargoyles, Skate or Die Tour De Thrash, and Bart Simpson's Escape From Camp Deadly.

So needless to say stopping in your local goodwill at least once every two weeks is probably a good way to stumble on some awesome retro goodness.

And now a little something from the land of the rising sun I picked up on E-Bay and just got to me today.

Cost me $208 after it was all said and done, but let me remind you if you look on ebay its selling for close to $400 used and this one is basicly in brand new condition, everything was still wrapped in the original plastic like it had never been touched. Needless to say my tax return is almost gone now from all this retro goodness and I've still got more genesis games on the way from ebay.   read
