This image is only intended to show Mikey's style. Our doodles will be bigger (since there won't be so many of them) and interacting with one another :)

UPDATE 2: Check Mikey's blog for more info and some concept art!

UPDATE: Everyone who has posted a pic/weapon choice in the forum thread should have received a PM from me. If you haven't, please PM me and let me know! And if you haven't submitted your face/weapon ideas yet, do it now! You only have until August 9th!

Friday Night Fights has just commissioned a new blog banner from none other than Mikey Turvey, and YOU have the chance to be on it!

That's right, for just $10, you'll get a Lil' Doodle version of yourself (sporting your choice of weapon) which will be featured on the official Friday Night Fights banner for the rest of eternity. Here's an FBI mockup of what mine might look like:


Big fucking gun

Sound like something you might be interested in? Of course it does! To sign up, just head on over to the forums and post a pic of yourself along with your favorite weapon. (I'll PM people payment details from there.) Once Mikey's received the list of names, photos, and weapon choices, he'll draw a 1000x450 banner featuring all of us fighting each other. Bad. Ass.

So who's in?! You have until the end of the day on Friday, August 2nd to get your name on the list, after which Mikey will begin work on what's sure to be his masterpiece.

Yay!

I created the #HolmesHole you see above as an early birthday present for Jim (I'm sure you can figure out why), but the moment I posted it to the Podtoid Facebook group the community embraced it with open mouth. So far we've seen a HolmesHoleInOne, a DoughnotHolmes, a XenoHolmes, a WillemDaHolmes, and more.

So now I put the question to you, fair Dtoiders: what's in Jonathan Holmes' mouth?

(Keep it safe for work, please!)

"Those real tits?"

Yesterday it was revealed that Hard Reset developer Flying Wild Hog is hard at work on a reboot of the 1997 3D Realms classic Shadow Warrior, and I could barely contain my enthusiasm. Seriously, just look at this comment I left on the news story; I did that annoying fucking thing where you spell out the word "love" with periods between the letters to drive home the point. I became that guy.

But it's not my fault. I spent way more time playing with Lo's Wang than I ever did Duke's Nukem, and the prospect of getting to step back into those blood-soaked sandals once again is one I am indescribably excited by. Unlike fellow Dtoid editor Allistair Pinsof, however, the idea of a "toned-down" Shadow Warrior is one I just can't get behind. In fact, it sounds fucking lame.

Without Lo Wang's offensive personality, juvenile and crude sense of humor, obsession with girls on the shitter, and awful, awful one-linersShadow Warrior would have simply been another shooter. Sure, the weapons were fun and the enemies exploded into lovely giblets, but we already have plenty of that in today's market. I can already slice a motherfucker in half while screaming at the top of my lungs in a videogame; I don't want *just* ninja swords and violence. I want anime girls s(h)itting on the toilet and shooting me with an uzi when I tease them about the smell. I want Lara Croft hanging in a prison cell after "raiding her last tomb". I want to watch rabbits fuck and make jokes about it. I want more wang jokes, god dammit.



These are the things that made Shadow Warrior Shadow Warrior. There are more dull, same-y shooters available to play right now than at any other time I can remember, and this industry needs a little Wang inside it to shake things up.

Please, please don't tone down Shadow Warrior. If you do, it won't be Shadow Warrior.

I'm too old to know how to Reddit but I sure do like this new-fangled Retoidded thingy we got goin' on. So ask me some fuckin' questions so I can answer them!








I realized it had been a while since I shared my (other) family with you all, so I thought some updated pics were in order!

Here's Alice on the day before her 3rd birthday:



The wife and I surprised her by showing up to her preschool with cupcakes. We rule!

Here's Henry sitting on the couch:



That's pretty much all he does all day.

Here's Alice finding Easter eggs yesterday:



So cute!

And here's Alice reading a book to Henry:



Such a good sister :)

Thanks for stopping by! Got any pics of your kids to share? DO IT!

I get it, dude; there isn't enough sports coverage on Dtoid since you left, and that bothers you. But for the love of god, man:

STOP SPAMMING THE CBLOGS!!!!!!!!!!
