Comments of the week Extra: Anyone seen my blue toothbrush?

Oh. Never mind. You keep it.

Welcome to Comments of the Week Extra! It's the stuff that didn't make it into Comments of the week after people complained that 10 pages of pictures don't count as a comment. They had a fair point, but I also noticed that a lot of people didn't care and loved it.

We'll be playing fast and loose with previous conventions such as categories, and skipping straight to great comments you may have missed from around the interspace.

Let's roll!

From Full COG armor? Also, transgender Link pics. Also also, Spider-Man pics.

From Good gay, fine sirs and madams.

From Hello Dtoid [Beware My Overuse Of The Word, .. Community =p]

After all that, I think it's time to end on a song.

Sing along with my Captain Busmunk remix! (WARNING: Not recommended for dogs or the capable of hearing)

What a thrill...
With darkness and silence through the night
What a thrill...
I'm searching and I'll melt into you
What a fear in my heart
But you're so supreme!

I'd give my life
Not for honor, but for you! [Snake Eater]
In my time there'll be no one else
Crime, it's the way I fly to you! [Snake Eater]
I'm still in a dream,
Snake Eater!

Someday you go through the rain
And someday, you feed on a tree frog
This ordeal, the trial to survive
For the day we see new light!

I'd give my life
Not for honor, but for you! [Snake Eater]
In my time there'll be no one else
Crime, it's the way I fly to you! [Snake Eater]
I'm still in a dream,
Snake Eater!

I am still in a dream,
Snake Eater!

From Sean Daisy's Inbox

Here is my tribute to one of the guys who got me back on the site, and got me back into doing Comments of the Week. I'm going to look back on his Commentoid contributions and pick some of the highlights. This is all GoldenGamerXero's original flavor.

From: EA wants Dead Space to be as big as Resident Evil

I prefer games that keep all the good things in other games but always add in something fresh to not be too similar.

From: Angry Birds boss claims consoles are dying

This guy is acting like Kanye West of video game developers. No one wants to be the Kanye West.

From: The nature of the videogame review

Disagreement with any way that game reviews are treated in the industry will get you in the truth section on my weeks.

NO EXCEPTIONS ícept if youíre a dick about it because that just ainít cool brah

From: Halo 4 start of a new trilogy, coming Holiday 2012

Before I used to feel bad when I missed a troll and saw great material like this go to waste but now I like to fill in the blanks of what they actually said. Right now Iím imaging a very posh sounding gentleman writing about how Halo ďcannot satisfy his intellectual need for depth that only a PS3 could attain. Or tits.Ē

From: Square Enix: Wii U needs a strong launch lineup


From: Indie rock band 'The National' lend song to Portal 2

They all look so excite

[b]From: Molyneux: Fable 3 not so great, Fable 4 must amaze you

Okay Peter I get it. You like including finer details rather than important gameplay features or hiring decent writers but all I wanna know is where are our acorns and WHERE THE FUCK ARE OUR TREES?!

From: See Sentinel, Hsein Ko in hot Marvel vs Capcom 3 action

Manrection is one of my new favourite words from the Dtoid dicktionary. Right after clitbutter.

Kudos to the four involved in this beautiful rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody. It put a smile on my face as I read through the derp.

Seriously guys WTF? For those wondering if I took these comments out of context go check the thread. This pretty much comes out of nowhere.

From: E3: First impressions of Prototype 2


From: In which I break down why Homefront's plot is impossible

Matt is really starting to remind me of a less cool and likeable version of the question:


From: Codies: Gran Turismo 5 could be acused of being boring

Have you ever had a comment just make you go ďwut?Ē because this one just made me do that. It wasnít because of the stupidity of what was said or anything it was just the randomness of it. Look at the comment in context and itís still pretty stupefying.


From Comments of the week: Xero is an unreliable bag of dicks edition

Tom and Jerry never stops being funny

Well stuff happened like my internet breaking down, watching the entire first season of Adventure Time, trying to learn C++, designing a small game with some friends and as per usual school so Comments of the Week will be late this week. This is all you guys want anyway so you shouldnít miss me much till Monday Ė Tuesday.

Hereís some awesome C-Blog shit that happened that most you the guys that read this are probably in:



In case any of you care about our game idea Ė Itís a point and click adventure game/turn based RPG in the vein of Monkey Island games, Escape the room style flash games, Earthbound and Paper Mario about a astronaut without a face who goes exploring with some other fellow faceless guys on a spaceship in order to find a evil guy whoís warping reality. It starts off in an infirmary and escalates with him buying weapons, items and other miscellaneous goods from the TV shopping channel that are helpfully delivered to him by a space delivery boy.

Itís an unnamed project that weíll probably decide its shit and give up before we actually get anyway half decent but hey at least we tried. As long as we have something to do from the next year or so Iíll be happy. Iím designing the characters, enemies and rooms as well as helping with scripting, puzzle design, music and programming. Some concept art [doodles] by me and friends can be found in the gallery below.

Comments of the Week: ...And a bunch of other weeks

Hey guys! I'm guesting this week. Been a while since I contributed to the C-Blogs but it feels great to be back. Things have been crazy busy. Got accepted into college, working at a local video game store, writing reviews for a site called VideoGameWriters, Tweetin'. A lot has happened since I popped up in here. Only recently have I gotten back into the habit of commenting like I used to.

By the way, if you're not on Twitter you totally should be. A good majority of the entertaining Dtoiders are there and it's awesome hearing their random thoughts and opinions on things video game related and beyond. Plus, it's fun as hell. It is a little weird at first but once you get into it it just becomes one giant forum basically.

Lastly, major congrats to Mr. Andy Dixon who is now our proud community manager!

P.S. When did video enabling die around here? this post is gonna be worse than it already is. :(

From: The Jimquistion: Accountability

YES! Iíve always said that the universal $60 standard is one of the stupidest things about this generation. I have yet to find the justification for the $60 standard, especially for small B-list titles. Some will say itís the increase in hardware power and expectations from the community but as the development process is being streamlined and digital distribution increases in popularity how can anyone justify a $60 price tag for so many games? Even more insulting is when you work in the video game retail scene, your friends start breaking into the industry and you begin to learn the real value of hard copies before they go up on shelves. Itís ridiculous.

From: Review: Shadows of the Damned

This is the logic I give everyone and I write reviews myself. If it looks good, play it. Reviews be damned and universal acclaim only goes so far. Experience something you feel mixed about or that you even hate. Youíll learn a lot.

From: Sonyís ĎWelcome Backí Promotion On PSN Ends Today

Can we please stop even acknowledging this kid? Ignore him. No ďYouíre 12,Ē or ďStop being a troll!Ē From an ex-fanboy, he lives for the attention.

Heís not even a fun troll.

From: Selling Violent Videogames to Children

This happens so much more than people are willing to realize. I canít tell you how many times Iíve head [SarahPalinAccent] ďOh, I donít like him playing this game but heís played it some much by now at his friendís house,Ē [/SarahPalinAccent]. Thatís like me saying ďI donít want lung cancer but I smoke already so I might as well keep smoking.Ē

Oh wait, that happens too. [/sigh]

From: GUYS, GET OVER IT! Girls Games. Some Donít

Usually I never waltz into these posts because itís always the same tired conversation. Someone says something about how girls play video games and someone says itís a tired subject and people agree, end scene. This however I thought was a surprisingly insightful transaction.


People usually post videos and stuff in their responses. I donít know if Iíll be able to find anything relevant so Iíll drop this here:

The real mu'fuckin' Harley Quinn!

From: Spoiler warning: non-final build of Gears of War 3 leaked

Alice Dixon?

From: The Jimquistion: Accountability

How did I come up with this particular WUT? I printed out all of mattrodroidís comments, blindfolded myself, threw a dart, and WHACK!

From: Itís the Prototype Facebook game youíve been waiting for!

Wow. Okay.

1. You foresaw this travesty and therefore decided to stick it to the man by buy the alternative title that isnít even a direct competitor?

2. In order to protest against this diabolical act you decided to buy the game where you could run around fucking up the city that is based on a city that has seen massive natural disasters?

3. How the hell does this show favor for hacking in any way, shape or form? Does infamous 2 show support for beating the shit out of street performers?

4. The fuck does ďf@ckingĒ mean?


From: Shadows of the Damned and Mexican machismo

God, stupidity parading as enlightenment is fascinating.


Well this was fun! Really late but fun nonetheless. Thanks to Sean ďCaptainBusĒ Daisy for the opportunity! Iíd like to leave my legacy by sharing a wonderful image our own Occamís shared with me.

Iíll see yíall in the comments! And on the Twitterz! AndÖaround. How do hang up this thing? Did that do it? I think so. So anyways, Iím in the shower and next thing I know I heard Donít Stand So Close to Me but Iím the only one in the house so I walk out, and I donít think to wear a towel becauseÖoh is it still on? Shit, here you hang it up.

Comments of the Week: I have returned edition

Yoho Dtoid! A lotís happened since Iíve been doing real world stuff and not coming by here as much. It feels... smaller than before. And did we get rid of the trolls? This place seems pretty relatively troll free compared with before. Maybe people are getting less stupid (or maybe Jimís just not writing as much) but itís an improvement. Because I was so happy to be back Commentoiding I decided to make up for no one covering last week as well. And then I remembered what happened these last two weeks.I remembered E3. All 13 Ė in headline format Ė tabs of it.

Oh Dear God. And so it begins.


You know at the beginning of this mess I supported the hacker side of the dispute as it seemed like the way that lead to most freedom of what you could do with your console but then Sony got hacked, credit card information was stolen and every bit of moral high ground that way had was promptly shat upon.


Just to note: I donít hate Kinect or think that most people do and I expect everyone to go back to just not giving two shits by the end of next week but Iíll be damned if Microsoft expects us to keep on letting that thing suck up precious E3 stage time till it dies. It wasnít cool when Wii Music did it and itís not cool now.

Pfft no one is that-

I stand corrected. My faith in humanity has just halved; and to think I didnít consider it possible to divide by zero.


I think everyone whoís ever played a Pikmin game will agree with this sentiment.


Part of me was attempted to put this is truth in an attempt to be meta. The other parts beat the crap out of that part for using the word meta.


Robin: Holy arthritis Batman! What the heck are those things!
Batman: The only evil that I canít defeat with stupidity and cash Robin... Stupid cashgrabs. Fear not for the day of this vile villainís victory has yet to come.
Robin: Really Batman!
Batman: Yeah these things will fucking tank in sales. Now come on letís get some hookers and blow.


You see I understand why people think like this as itís basic maths really. When a developer releases on 2 consoles then they have to therefore halve the amount of fun you have with the game. Itís just how video game programing works. Thereís also a machine that runs on play-doh and magic dolphins involved but I think Iíve said too much.


Before I used to feel bad when I missed a troll and saw great material like this go to waste but now I like to fill in the blanks of what they actually said. Right now Iím imaging a very poosh sounding gentleman writing about how Halo ďcannot satisfy his intellectual need for depth that only a PS3 could attain. Or tits.Ē


This man is truly a master of the modern metaphor. I smell Nobel prize of literature candidate in the making.


The only redeeming quality of Kinect is that it as shown everyone how not to do motion controls. Itís the virtual boy of motion controllers.


I rewatched Batman Begins a while back and I still canít get the words ďIím BatmanĒ out of my head. Seriously why do gritty Batman interpretations always end up being so laughable.




Handy, bro, never change.


Mr. Dixon I want you to know it was 11PM when I was that message and I wanted to stop looking for additions till I read the inbox Ė Yes we still do read those on occasions I now have proof! Ė and I saw that you thought you had made a real good funny. I sighed, looked at my monitor and proclaimed that if that comment didnít floor me that I was going to bed and posting this blog Saturday.
You got lucky.


Oh Jim. You always bring out the worst in people.


Iím actually disappointed that people tell themselves things like this. Tinfoil hat edition was two weeks ago bub.




You will all never know how badly I wanted to Truth this comment because of how freaking sick I am of Minecraft.


Dear Taerdin

I understand that the Zelda series isnít your cup of tea but I would request Ė if I may be so bold Ė that you simply quit your bitching in every thread I come across to do with the topic.

Youíre entitled to your opinion but thereís no such thing as a right to spam.

Yours shutthefuckupingly

And now is a special time in Comments of the Week as I believe a particular user has shown himself to be more of an utter twat than thought humanly possible. I present to you all the remains of The Legendary Biohazard. Such a troll was a perfect example of why fanboys are lower than cockroaches and portmanteaus should be banned (honestly I havenít heard/read someone seriously use the term Xbots since 2009).

So Biohazard when you inevitably arise from your troll grave like a sickly, aged, zombie afterbirth to plague us once again I would like to award you with Commentoidís very first:

Are trolls really just hairy, badly modelled, versions of Mr. Destructoid? We will never know...

Perhaps you will be honoured with the gesture for long enough to realise how stupid youíve been recently and become a helpful and treasured member of the Destructoid community.

But whatís more likely is that youíd come back, call us all Sony hating retards/gays/whatever is the most popular derogatory statement among preteens, then get banned and fuck off again.

Because youíre 12

Thatís it for today guys. I planned on doing both weeks in one blog but I think Iíll do the next part some other time (if none of the other guys volunteer that is)

Comments of the Week: Tinfoil hat edition.

Hey everybody! Itís time for Comments of the Week, categorizing comments so you donít have to think for yourself!

So, E3 is next week, Iím sure you didnít notice know because nobody mentioned it lately, but are you ready? Truly ready? Have you prepared food for the conferences? The emergency food for unexpected announcements? The comfort food for the motion control segments? Do you have your excuse for not going to work for a week? Have you prepared your body for lounging around for a week? Have you prepared your mind for crushing disappointment?

Do you have the champagne on ice for when they announce Persona 5 and the revolver loaded for when they donít?

You know what that means!


Look out Chad, theyíre after the dolphins now!

Comments of the Week: I Feel Feyntastic

I was away for a little while, but now I'm back. I guess Xero had to step out for a little while or something, and The Bus asked me to do some Commetingoid. I wasn't super busy, so I said, "sure!"

This week's Commentoid is in honor of the esteemed Dr. Feynman, who is my new hero, ever since I finished reading his book. I can't say enough good things about it: humor, wit, adventures, and science! Totally worth reading.

I guess it's also a reference to a song of a similar name by the amazing Jonaathan Coulton.

See, the thing is, trying isn't quite good enough.

Comments of the Week: Easter Egg (hidden in the Statue of Happiness) Edition!

Is your brain a fizzing synaptic mess after excessive chocolate and alcohol overload? Hey, welcome to Easter!

Us British folk have a double-header of holidays - the usual Easter celebrations with Friday and Monday off and the Royal Wedding next weekend meaning...another Friday and Monday off! I guess some of you across the pond may care about this and some do not. The sentiment is pretty similar here (apart from the days off, of course). Still, best of luck to them and all that.

Apparently the wedding is to be streamed live on YouTube. Will it get more hits than Rebecca Black? Only time will tell.

Keep your children away from this one. There, I said it, and I mean it. This one should not be sold, or played by, anyone under 18. I'll go into a definitive reason later in the review (and the reason it only received 3 stars), but the disclaimer had to be there. WHen they say M for Mature, they mean it.

Like going to a curry house with a strong dislike of spicy or exotic food, I'm with ChillyBilly on this one. But then, we would start an argument on reviews and whether someone who dislikes a brand of game can fairly review a game in that group. That's a discussion for another time.

Comments of the Week: I'm still getting used to this Edition

I couldn't really think of anything relevant for a header image, so here's a reminder that Portal 2 comes out in less than a week.

Hey guys. Freak here again, filling in for knutaf. I know this week's post isn't quite on schedule, but writing these things take a lot more time than I expected. Lot of respect for those who do this regularly, I have a hard enough time as a backup.

We got a new interface for the cblogs now, huh? I predict big things happening in Dtoid soon. Maybe we can see Podtoid 2.0 resurface? Hint hint?
Seriously, it's been too long since Podtoid ended. I want to see a new one rise!

Now I'm not going to lie, was kinda hard to find this week's comments. Seemed like not a whole lot happened in the comment sections; its one of the reasons why I was kinda late getting these up. However, if anyone can find better comments from this week, feel free to rub it in my face. I'll admit it, I haven't quite gotten used to the job, and I will accept my lack of experience showing.

But enough of that. Here's what I DID find.

Debatoid: Are scores necessary in video game reviews?

I picked this one for a few reasons, but the primary one being that DF brings up some good points about us and reviews. We keep saying that we are tolerant of other reviewers' differing opinions, yet I still know of people who I normally respect will get angry at other people just because they didn't like a game you did. I'm guilty of this as well, and I've tried to stop this as of late. I can't stop anyone, but I would like to remind people that there's a difference between having a counter-argument, and a slam on the person in question. Just consider what it is you're saying before you say it. But you probably don't need me to tell you that. Also, there's a difference between not taking a reviewer seriously, and taking his opinion with a grain of salt.

But in all honesty, the whole blog was filled with great opinionated comments. Debatoid is truly a great idea, and I hope it flourishes.

Let Portal 2 sell you some quality footwear

Now, I'm not normally one to complain about ads on a free blog, but an ad that is over a minute long is a bit much. Fortunately, the Interdimensional Master Shark Demon is currently working on the case. So I guess things will be running smoothly again soon.

How to donate to the Jonathan Holmes burglary fund

This is why I stay at Destructoid. No one can match the kind of Community we have. Oh, and Holmes? If you read this, know that I'd gladly send you my regards in currency form, but alas, I am jobless. So all I can send is my hope that you're able to get everything straightened out to the best of your ability, and that they catch the jackholes who burgled you.

"SuckerPunching" the 360?! *Confirmed*

mrandydixon: Master of Wit and Aroused Male Sexual Organs

Anonymouse - A Re-Introduction

I second the notion. Seriously, that was the most amazing comment I've seen this week. I'd give it a seal of approval if I had one.

Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta starts up April 18

That post doesn't have enough F-bombs in it. I also didn't read a whole lot in the post about people being disappointed with Bulletstorm or buying it solely for the purpose of playing the beta, but whatevs.

ESRB: L.A. Noire has blood spurts, pubic hair, racism

What's that? POLITICS AND CONSPIRACY THEORIES IN MY GAMING BLOG??? Wait, it's just Mattrodroid. Carry on.

Review: SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs

See my previous statements about reviewers. The game doesn't even come out until Tuesday, so I'm really finding it hard to take half of these Jim-blasting comments seriously.

I said before that I thought this was a weak week, and I expect plenty of criticism this time around, which I will try and take. The other guys are probably much better than I am at this.

But I've said enough. I'm out (Freak out?)!

Comments of the Week: CaptainBus watches you when you comment Edition

Natalie Portman in When Carrots Ruled the Earth (due out in Spring 2012)

Greetings, true lovers of the comment! As you may or may not know I have been keeping myself mighty busy with Debatoid, which is doing pretty well. If it wasn't working out though, did I have any backup plans?

Yes Sir, yes indeed I did.

I review the latest in videogame hardware in peripherals; after they have been dipped in maple syrup. Was planning on making it a big hit with the Canadian audience.

I send a load of consoles and games to the legendary rock musician Meat Loaf, along with my email address and instructions on the kind of reviews I'd like to read, and hopefully he responds with some good reviews.

I review games, with the added twist of taking a shot every time I died. My first games were going to be Demon's Souls and Super Meat Boy, so I might hold off on that one for a while.

Don' knaow if ya cud get yer mince pies round this lil' cracker guv'nor, but the ol' Jackie Chan was to do the ol' blummy Bananarama in proper ol' cockney mush! Right ol' pudding that'd be I tells ya! Knees up Mother Brown!

Videogame stories in rhyme (or verse)

Thus, did I once chance upon
A preview of that Duke Nukem;
My eyes did scour, and thus did find,
He slapped a dainty femme's behind.

No doubt, you may have heard decree,
The Press (in their indignity)
Did rule the game as one to vex,
The equality rule of sex.

Seriously; the Poetrytoid one might be a keeper. Look out for that one.

We look at videogames and see how everything reminds you of a dick with a kink in it.

For instance, play a bit of Tetris a while...

Ah, looken sie now! Das purple shape ist ein dick mit a kink in it. No qvestion.

From the article
Dude. I had the weirdest dream in a long time. It was even better than that time when I dreamt that Microsoft threw a console comparison party and Christian Slater was rapping at a nightclub. In this dream, our editors were answering phones, receiving faxes, and drawing our posts all day as if we were living back when Game Counselors roamed the land -- a time before the Internet would drive them to extinction.

I hear you, man, but for me it was going to be an international call, so I chose to in order to keep money in mah wallets. Doesn't mean I don't regret it...

From Max Payne 3 isn't dead, here are two new screens

Once the game is released, one of these comments will remain! We'll have to wait and see as to which.

From Retailer buys 3DS units from one store to sell preowned in another store
From the article:
UK retailer GAME has admitted that it got staff members to buy 3DS units from another store in order to re-sell them as pre-owned items at its own outlets.

While small, independently run stores sometimes re-sell cheap supermarket products, it's not often you'll get a major videogame retailer pulling a stunt like this, especially on such a freshly released product. Tesco was offering a launch deal where the system costs £175 when bought with a £34.90 3DS game, which GAME took advantage of. Up to £1049.50 was spent per trip to Tesco, amounting to five bundles' worth.

From the article
Nintendo has addressed the situation, confidently stating that it "won't significantly influence" the 3DS' chart performance.

Though you could argue it adds a new, dimension, to it?
