I'm Randy.

Platformers are the best games of all time. I do, however, play everything else, too.

If God is up there, he will make it so I don't have to wait in five year breaks for a decent platformer (Mario 64, Sunshine, Galaxy) with the rare exceptions (Sly Cooper, Rayman).

I also don't swear.

Happy Halloween fellow Dtoiders!

For the handful of you people who actually watch these, here's part 11.

So Bioshock... Remember it? It got a lot of praise from critics due to... well, I'm not actually sure why, as I found it to be the most overrated thing since 300. I'm quite surprised how most reviewers thought that you could go through the whole game using only a wrench and your only penalty for death is to go back a few rooms with everything exactly the way it was when you died (including the enemies' health). That's a huge design flaw in my book. One thing I did agree on was the game's story was original and the atmosphere was superb. However, the gameplay flaws held me off of the game until very recently when I started my Bioshock Commentary.

I've also heard from many people, sites, and whatever else that the game had a big twist that would rock my world. I figured "Psh, the Atlas guy is a traitor." I was right about that. What I didn't know was the twist behind the twist. The fact that he can make you do anything you ask by saying "Would you kindly?" It's like, making a story twist out of a linear path. Awesome.

Though it would have been more awesome to have actually seen it happen. I guess "accidentally" is stretch a bit far here. I was reading an article on 1UP where they reveal the "Top 5 Videogame Spoilers." I never thought Bioshock would be on the list, as the game is pretty recent, but it was, and when I scrolled down and saw it, I tried to scroll fast enough to skip it but it seems like my hand was paralyzed and I saw a little too much. I guess it was more of me wanting to finally know what the twist is than "accidentally" but screw off.

Have you guys ever got spoilers when you didn't want to? Let's hear it. Just warn before-hand what you're spoiling so people don't get screwed over.

Tuesday, April 29th: Grand Theft Auto IV for Xbox 360 arrives at my home around one P.M. in the afternoon.

Wednesday, April 30th: At around two A.M., my Xbox 360 red rings. This is after I states to all my subscribers that I would be reviewing the game for my YouTube Channel. While looking around for a taxi in Liberty City, my game freezes. I'm thinking "Okay, people have had this problem." I hit the power button on and the red rings of death is laughing at me. Laughing at me with it's eyes.

Nearly two weeks of nothingness until one fateful day, the children downstairs made a generous offer that would allow me to use their Xbox 360 while they were at school.

Well, my Xbox 360 box finally got here and I shipped it away. Today, I decided to take a short break from Liberty City since it's been nearly two months since I've been able to play Rock Band drums (due to the crappy Rock Band hardware). So I load up Rock Band and play a few songs. I was on my game. Gold stars everywhere. Suddenly, someone sends me a game invite. I figure "why not!?"

Well I'll tell you why not!

He was playing the drums so I was going to sing. I reach for my microphone. The cord of the microphone was apparently under the cords of the Xbox 360 without me knowing it, so when I lifted it up, the Xbox 360 lifted up slightly. We're talking very slightly. Like, so slightly that I'm going to say slightly three more times.

Slightly, slightly, slightly.

Suddenly I hear this disturbing, scary sounds of a disc that has fallen off of the disc tray. I was quick to act, but sadly, I was too late. The Xbox 360 devoured my Rock Band disc. There is a huge scratch around it, even though it was only off the tray for literally half a second. I think "Maybe it'll still work!"


So why do I love the Xbox 360? Why did I spend over four hundred dollars for it about a year and a half ago? Sure, I've had no problems up until now, but these problems are making me want to kill someone, so therefor, it is technically murdering someone.

And Glitter, starring Mariah Carey, is an aweful movie. I just watched it for the first (and last) time.

Off-topic - None of you people will know what I'm talking about except one person, but whatever. Why haven't you been on? AIM me sometime, woman.

My Xbox red ringed so GTA4 was taken from me. So here's part ten.

The first of many to come.
