The Big Bad Wolf
12:24 PM on 12.26.2008

Twas the night before Christmas

On the xbox forums

Not a single troll was stirring, only the fanboys

"a miracle patch, be how can it be?"

if baby jesus was given birth by a virgin, surely it will be!

A Combustable Mappack has been released

I ask my community, when will it be free?

I am too poor to afford, Cliffy B

Don't you value my loyalty?

Ginger-Man Ferguson says the game is well-polished

Then why am I being struck through a wall like a comet?

Ninja flips and boomshield glitches to boot

I really hope this miracle patch comes soon

I look and watch as the population dwindles

Even Major Nelson says "damn, this game is becoming nimble"

Cliffy B where have you been?

Are you busy having photoshop be done to your head?

A self portrait or immortalize yourself

While your precious community laughs at your retard-rabbit looks?

That didn't rhyme, but there's not enough highlights in his hair to compensate bad looks

9 of us are left, in your multiplayer

It now takes me 30 minutes to find a match for team slayer

Did I just say slayer? I am thinking all wrong

This game was short-lived, nothing can be done

The miracle patch won't come to be

I put my head down and sigh "looks like I'm going back to Halo 3"

The End








Since this is likely deleted/locked on the xbox forums by time I cut/paste it here, thought I'd include it in my blog at destructoid. Take it however you want it, but this is truly how xbl and it's forums are. If you don't know, you might not appreciate it. And if you do know, and still don't appreciate it, I'm not sorry for offending you.

And to anyone that isn't a part of this carol, Merry Christmas! May your xboxlive and forum experiences be full of one-minded sheep (or ants), bumped dead horse threads, moderators that put a comfort blanket over children that can't win an arguement, and most importantly, horrendous arguement "skills" of these juvenile peanuts that can put a Fox news panel to shame!

And remember kids, when you're losing an arguement and you report the person that's bashing your dense, de-volved skulls inside out... Reporting = "I lose". Hope you find a lump in your coinpurse for xmas.

*hooks flamebait*... *reels you in*... And still no innoventive comebacks til this day! [;)]








Are the clear target towards console gaming. They are "the masses" developers seem to aim their software towards. Is this wrong from a business standpoint? Not in the least, but what of the hardcore/competitive gamers? Are they a dieing breed now?

I find it truly difficult to believe that casual gamers cannot withstand the thought of a game that has a learning curve, challenges and a skillful multiplayer experience. More skill than luck, or pure skill with virtually no sign of luck,

Can we expect casual gaming to continue to reign the console gaming experience? There was a time when anykind of online gaming was directed towards and played by hardcore/competitive gamers. Now, it is open towards all types of gamers, obviously casuals since they are not the minority.

Is this the rise or fall of console gaming? Will developers ever take the gamble of releasing a game where hardcore/competitive gamers will reign superior while casuals can still come on and still find an enjoyable experience? One can only hope such a developer is capable.

In my opinion, you CAN release a game aimed towars the hardcore/competitve gamers while still having the majority of money/gameplay by the casuals. Just because it's not a pick-up and play game doesn't mean you should be intimidated so much that you return it days after purchasing it. Developers should stop seeing us as a bunch of incapable beings who prefer comfort blankets and spoonfed easy, simple experiences. We are human beings, we are known for adapting and learning. Shouldn't we be treated as such?

Yes, it's "just a game", but it's also our money. Am I the only one who finds a little bit of insult from these developers when they release games that don't challenge us or make us think? I know for a fact that many, many, many of you are capable of it. We need a team to recognize our abilties. A game where casual and hardcore/competitive gamers can both play, where at the same time not co-exist in the multiplayer experience. Because who wants to play a kid that plays a game religiously, or the other way around? Playing people of similiar skills/hours put into a game is one of the best approaches for this, off the top of my head of course.

Hopefulyl that wasn't flamebait. Would just like to see less casual games and LITTLE more hardcore/competitive games. Because in all honesty, if you release a badass game, people will play it for more than a month. Whereas the casuals will linger or move onto the next big title/sequal.










Not to generalize all of you as a bunch of brain-dead sheep who all "ba-a-a-ah" the same note, but hear me out if you care for a delicious teeth-sinking rant on "the masses" (sheep).

***For the record: This blog applies towards all forums and online game communities. I will mainly focus my attention towards the xbox community however. Since that is my main stomping grounds.***

Let's use our imagination, for those of us who still have some brain capacity after spending X amount of time on forums or online games.

Let's pretend that "God" decided to descend from the "Heavens" one day to make a thread here, and tell us DIRECTLY which "religion" is right. He will make a very nice post, no wall-o-text, no rants, or harassment. You'd think that it's a flameproof thread, right? In the eyes of anyone whose never been here before, yes. It's the perfect forum thread. The thread title isn't in all caps and he showed respect in his post.

So even though GOD just told us the RIGHT religion, if any, maybe he said there is none, that even he doesnít exist! But nonetheless, you just heard it from THE #1 SOURCE of what's the truth. You will get this one stupid little forum troll who will waddle his way in here, after such a great post is made. Only to point out a SPELLING ERROR in his post. Instead of staying to topic, and taking in the truth.

So, that's your argument? Going against a kid as the Grammar Police?

That's my biggest beef with this forum. You can give the most valid, legit argument in the world. Give the best case, where no one can step up to you and counter it, or turn it around. Then you get these inbred little sheep bastards that have to rely on GRAMMAR in an argument, without offering any real counterpoints or "comebacks" for that matter.

So in short, if you are a grammar police kid, you are not proving anyone wrong. You are slowing down the process of a good debate/argument with your juvenile sheep tactics. I say sheep, because you are like everyone else who has nothing to offer here. You are better off sheered and slaughtered like the rest of them.

(I am Agnostic, not that it matters. It was just an example, one of the best to come to mind with the time I spared).

It would not surprise me to see a thread by a person of actual authority to correct the "people", only to be retaliated by some sheep-like *** child who has to point out one typo in his entire post. Only to derail the thread. People like this are a cancer to the XBL forums, and we've ALL seen it and ALL been victims of their BS antics. Can mods or anyone do anything about it? No, they continue to get away with being stupid. I don't agree with people living their lives in a bubble of stupidity. We need to help them, break free of the herd! Be a wolf, not a sheep.

While I am at it, here are a few one-liners you will hear sheep ba-a-a-ah to you to "counter" your arguments online or in forums:

- "You only say that because you are bad at the game"
- "Someone must've had a bad game"
- "(Game Title) is a perfect game"
- "You have no life"

Honestly kids, if you are going to attempt a post/comeback that sounds awfully familiar to many, many others. Maybe you should reconsider hitting that post button.

I donít know which community is worse, the people on XBL or the "people" on it's forums.
