Best Moments Of The VGX

Ok, this is going to be a really shitty blog, but i really want to talk about this funny event that unfolded yesterday (i was laughing through the whole thing), so i'll "write" it real fast. My main goal is to make this the official VGX blog, so share all your favorite moments here, i really want to know about that.

Ok, so favorite moments:

Joel's Parody of the Antonio Banderas .gif

I don't know why, but i found this little clip super hilarious. Easily the highlight, in my opinion.



Other minor enjoyable bits were the whole awkwardness and bad jokes. The Community dude did a good job at being a douchebag, but he also pushed the devs/PR people to the edge with some questions, which i kind of liked. The Smosh spoof was a little too cringeworthy, and PewDiePie was just bad. Also, that other host was just being an asshole when Reggie appeared to present Donkey Kong.

Overall i hope this show doesn't happen again in the same form, it was just too embarrassing. They showed no care or professionalism, and the awards were presented in a very dull manner. If the have the opportunity to do it next year, i just wish they take their time to organize it in a better way, so it doesn't make all the gamer/gaming enthusiast community look stupid again.   read

How to bypass Twitch on Dtoid

First option, suggested by Destructoid's CEO, Hamza: Switch to blog style. Just go here:

Honestly, i don't like the blog style, it takes like twice the time to browse through articles.

Second option, suggested by me: 1. Install Adblock Plus 2. Go to "Add you own filters" and copy and paste these separately in the "+ Add Filter" field and press the ""+ Add Filter" button:

Tested on Opera and Chrome.   read

My Landlord's Top 4.5 H.I.D.D.E.N. G3ms

Ok, first things first. I made this blog with the sole purpose of spreading the following message: Disable the goddamn Twitch Autoplay, you dicks. Update 1: Also the fucking blog editor sucks harder than Jim leaving for a second time.

Ok, now that we cleared that up, i'm going to try and make this shit longer (that's what your mom said), so it doesn't come as a really shitty blog, instead giving it the opportunity to be a simple shitty one. pls dont h8, etc.

These are my Top 4.5 H.I.D.D.E.N. G3ms.

Hidden Gem 1: Hybrid Heaven for the N64

This game is an RPG and a fighting game. It has the most satisfying limb based combat ever in almost any game to date. There's lots of different playstyles (Boxing, Taekwondo, Wrestler, or a mix of them). You play as a classy Native American guy called Mr. Diaz. Chaos ensues. The enemy designs are both, stunning and gross.

Music: Good.
Graphix: Good for the time (use expansion pack for maximum overpower).
Gameplay: Hilariously fun and complex. LOTS of moves and combos. 
Story: Yes.
Twists: It contains the biggest twist in the history of videogames.
Ludonarrative Dissonance: What?
Most liked tiny moment: Backsuplexing a slim woman and breaking her neck.

Hidden Gem 2: Brutal Doom for the PC console

It's Doom but more brutal. Doom purists hate it. I don't even know if it's a Hidden Gem, but...Doom. Link:

Music: Doom.
Graphix: Doom for the time (use expansion Doom for maximum overDoom).
Gameplay: Hilariously Doom and Doomplex. LOTS of Dooms and Doombos. 
Story: Doom.
Twists: It contains the biggest Doom in the history of videogames.
Most liked tiny moment: Doom.

Hidden Gem 3: The Oil Blue for PC

The Oil Blue is chill, it's simply too good if you're into multitasking. EXCEPT THIS IS GOD MODE AND IT'S GOING TO RIP YOU APART. YOU GET OIL AND PUT IT INTO FUCKING BARRELS, AND THERE'S A CERTAIN NUMBER OF BARRELS YOU HAVE TO FILL TO BEAT A LEVEL, YEAHHH! I love it. There was some controversy with this game because people get mad about oil.

Music: Relaxing.
Graphix: The art melts my heart. It's so soft. 
Gameplay: Multitasking like a professional porn star in a gang bang. Manipulate multiple machines.
Story: Simple.
Most liked tiny moment: Failing a level because you missed one barrel.

Hidden Gem 4: Melty Blood series for The PS2 and PC

The last version (Melty Blood: Actress Again Current Code) is my favorite fighting game. Perfect for late night bets. It's an (almost) all girls fighter. The character design is lovely, the combos look good. If you have class, you are going to want to play this game. Don't wait, go ahead.

Music: Very good, it mixes various genres.
Graphix: Nice spritework, better animations.
Gameplay: It contains a Magic Meter to do special powers, a high risk-high reward block button, a shield which depletes your meter, and other things from fighting games. It's fast.
Story: Weird.
Most liked tiny moment: Beating a behemoth with a little girl.

Hidden Gem 4.5: Rhythm Heaven Silver for GBA.

It's a fan translation of Rhythm Heaven for GBA! They're even translating the animated text and shit! Wonderful!

Thing is, it's still not finished. But it's half a hidden gem!
