    My friends trying to get a new gamertag.. He thought up "The Grapest". Unfortunatly, Microsoft wont allow it. Heres his letter to XBL Support

    Congratulations, Xbox Live, on screwing personal identity in the posterior. I just spent several hours trying to come up with a Gamertag which referenced Whitest Kids You Know's "The Grapest" short. After hundreds of failed--and often absurdly obscure--attempts which told me the Gamertag was "in use," I realized that the service was, in fact, raping me.

    What was really happening, you see, is that Xbox Live was blocking the word "rape" in every possible way, shape, and form. Which means I can't even call myself a freaking grape.

    I find this highly offensive, as I consider myself entitled to the ability of naming myself after a god damned fruit. For Christ's sake, I live in America. Apparently freedom of speech doesn't allow me to say rape on Xbox Live.

    I find this rather ironic, considering the most adequate description for the hindrances placed on Gamertag diversity involves the word "rape" and "ass."

    Thanks for raping my identity. In the ass.

    Sincerely,
    The Grapest


    Its been, roughly a year since i've used my dtoid account, im sure no one cares but i thought i might as well update everyone about my status right now. My gaming computer died, im in the process of saving up money to build an all new one. Im hoping to have that all done by christmas. I love Forza 3, its an amazing game and i recommend it, to anyone. Uh, as my ADD is kicking in, imma finish off. So yeah. bye.


    Woo, Welcome to the new year. I have a little thing i want to try, and that is to try writing some reviews. Sure, i might fuck up, but bear with me and post some Comments and Criticism.

    Runescape. The last game anyone wants to be caught playing. Everyone gives it a bad rep due to the idiots that rampage around its servers, and the horrible graphics it has. Well, i hope to give it another chance. Every new years, i have a little tradition. I've gone on, and had a little new years party at one of the taverns. I drop a ton of gold and let everyone go wild. Ive done this tradition since 2001, thing is, i haven't played Runescape regularly since 2005. Last night, i log on, not to the horrible eyesore it once was, but to something different. The graphics were apparently majorly overhauled. They look great, and now im actually playing it so much, i spent all day, since 8 AM this morning, to a couple of minutes ago.

    Since im getting tired of this, ill wrap this up and break this up into parts.

    So, Graphics on a scale of 1-10. Formerly 1-2. Now 6. Go check it out, and stay tuned.

    Tomorrow: Quests


    Yeah, i bought a 360 a few weeks ago. Now i regret buying it. I was going to buy either a 360, or a PS3. I bought it back when they had the supply issues. I went to like 5 stores looking for one. I told myself if they didn't have it at the last store i looked at, i was going to get a PS3. Well, target had it, and i bought it. I feel stupid for buying it now. I probably wont get a PS3 now, because the Xbox 360 was the last thing game related my dad was going to buy for me, as i need to get a job soon. I'm pissed off because Gran Turismo 5 and MGS4 look kick ass.


    Nothing to fucking do, and all this anticipation. Days seem longer, and nerves wear down faster. It seems like all i do is bitch at everyone who pisses me off, or tries to fuck with me. 9 days until i get 250$ so i can upgrade my computer, and hopefully after i buy the parts, i can play more games, faster.


    I went to Wal-mart today looking for Hellgate London today. Unfortunately, they were out of stock and I wasn't going to leave empty handed so i bought the World of Warcraft battle chest. I'm playing that, and i'm probably not going to stop until my hands blister or i die from overdosing on caffeine. If anyone plays on Area 52, and wants to help me out i'm a level 11 Orc. And as usual, I'm using the nickname Dadud


    My computer sucks, hard.

    Stats:
    Athlon XP 3000+ 2.16ghz. 1.25 gigs of ram, Nvidia 6800, SOCKET A, AGP, horrible case.

    I would update it, but i have no money. I have no job, i have no car. I could walk to work, but i live 20 fucking miles from a town. So im broke, and stuck playing old ass games. Once in a while i can play a good game, like Armed Assault, or STALKER, but other than that, everything else runs like shit. So lately ive been turning into a retro gamer, playing games like Freespace 2, Warzone 2100, and others. So destructioid, i ask you this: Got any old games that are must play, and at least tolerable to download on dial up if abandonware?


    Once again, does anyone know of a good, reliable private server? im getting tired of playing on WoWscape and Deathknell.cc


    How many times have you heard that? Too many probably. Anyways, heres my reason. Today, i had a craving to play some Flight Simulator X, i installed it, but when i tried activating it, it said i had reached the activation limit for my key. So i called up tech support. I sat on hold for like 30 minutes just to talk to an Indian guy who then redirected me to someone else who had me say my product ID. I finally got the game working, but seriously. Why would Microsoft put a limit on activation. I understand it for discouraging piraters, but seriously, raise the limit to like 20-30. 2 is just too little.


    Now, I'm not going to do a review on it, but i do want to ask this. Does anyone know of a good private server? I've been jumping around private servers for months now, and i can never seem to find a good one. Either they're unpopulated, too unreliable, or ultra low xp rates.


    I got Armed Assault a few weeks ago from one of my close friends (Free and Legal, he bought the game for me). It is possibly *the* most realistic gaming experience I've ever had. With features such as a deep and detailed campaign with a ton of optional side missions, it had me playing it for long stretches of time. It also comes packed with a ton of drivable vehicles and usable weapons. As with most games, the teams are the US verses the SLA (A communist state with old cold war weapons). Vehicles include: Hummers, M1A1, M113's. Harriers, Ah-1, UH-60, AH-6. on the SLA side: UAZ, T-72's, BDRMs, BMP-2's, MI-17s, KA-50s, and much more. I recommend this game to ANYONE who's sick and tired of BF2's lame ass game play, and those who want to be challenged by AI. In this game you cant just go into a town or an area full of AI and just shoot everything. You're most likely going to get shot a few steps in. You need to plan things out and then execute them according to plan.
