Welcome to Commentoid, home of Comments of the Week!
Commentoid is where we take the full range of comments; the ones that make you think, the ones that make you laugh and the ones that make you cry (but also laugh), and compounds them into an entertaining package for the viewing pleasure of you, the Destructoid community.
We do take requests from time to time but be forewarned that messages about insightful commentary, brilliant wit or heartbreaking failure are much more likely to get checked if you send them to the correctly listed officiator for that week.
The combined group of commentive officiators (That lay down the weekly sermon of commentacular commentitude within a relay system of commentatoratiativenessisation!):
We try to go live Wednesday - Friday just to leave some room in everyone's schedules and make sure that there's enough time to post. If a post doesn't go up on Wednesday then don't worry as we're probably not dead.
Welcome welcome faithful listeners, once again, to Commentoid for the week of... er, sometime around Black Friday to sometime after Black Friday. I'm Knutaf, and I'll be trying to entertain you for the next few minutes. I dunno, I feel like I took two weeks to do a week's worth of Commentoid. CaptainBus even needed to send me a flame mail over PM. I tell you what, this always takes way more time than I realize. It's my third time through; you think I'd figure it out by now.
Other things I might rather be doing, truth be told (in this order): playing The World Ends With You; writing a blog post about The World Ends With You; or writing up a post for this month's Monthy Musing. Yeah, yeah, I know. I could always drop out. But I like to provide a service here, even if the quality of it is pretty awful.
Enough, enough. Let's get started. I selected a lot of comments this time. As such, some of them may not be accompanied by much explanation. I hope they are sufficiently funny or baffling in their own right.
As a final note, I'd like to point out that, once again in the spirit of innovation, I've incorporated a new piece of technology into Commentoid this week: when you click a link to go to the post the comment originated from, the link will take you straight to the comment (not the top of the page)! For the betterment of comment-kind. Unfortunately this only works for comments on cblogs, sorry.
I love Byronic Man's comments, in general. I saw at least one or two more that were Commentoid-worty, but I didn't want to flood the place with them. One downside is that sometimes his comments are a little tricky to understand. Today I've taken the liberty of also providing a translation. Byronic Man, I hope you don't mind this liberty.
In this meta-comment, Kraid is rightfully alluding to the stinking cesspool of comments adjoining this post. I dare you to read them, but please, please don't feed the troll; it's already had its fill so many times over.
Joysticks were technically analog sticks, but I can't help but feel that the N64 popularized it in a handheld form first. On the software front, someone claimed that Mario 64 was perhaps the first 3-D platformer created. I haven't seen that disputed yet. Go Nintendo for coming up with new stuff.
This one was so great that in including it here, I've violated multiple separate internal "rules" of mine:
- Avoid including comments from my friends. If I did this, Occams, Corduroy, and Dixon would just dominate Commentoid. Sorry, guys, but they're pretty funny, and they comment on a lot of stuff.
- Avoid vulgar humor. I know, I know. This is the internet, which is built on a foundation of vulgar humor, but I prefer to think that there's a lot of really good non-vulgar humor that deserves to be recognized and an overabundance of the former.
Holy crap, dude, you've got me. I can't think of a single counterpoint. There are no games at all that are fun despite having basically no consequence for death. And definitely none associated with this rad art.
