The Playstation Store sucks balls.



I've stated before that as a father of three, I have levels of patience and tolerance that normal people without children ( or superpowers ) do not possess. Meaning that I usually let things slide off my person, no matter how irritated I may be by whatever action is causing discomfort. Typically it's just not worth the effort to address but occasionally something will penetrate my wall of Zen clean through to the point where the only way to mend it is to grudgingly air out my grievances. Consider what I'm writing now a grievance that has been chipping at my wall for quite a while now and one I am forced to not just mend, but eradicate the source causing it altogether.

Now I know there has been a swelling of support for the Playstation brand in general due to folks either warming up to their PS3s or their enthusiastic anticipation of the PS4 with the bells, whistles and kitchen sink in tow. The new system has gobs of memory, indie developers apparently are ejaculating to Sony's warm embrace of them, and it has been said on the down low that it even spoon feeds you nachos while you play it. While all of that sounds peachy, here's something Sony may want to not replicate that their PS3 does do and that's having a broken store to download shit from.



Pure and simple as the eloquent title to this post has clued you in on, the store sucks balls. Not little marble sized ones...we're talking massive elephant ones here brother. The problem? The Playstation store updates are unbelievably inconsistent. You know when Nintendo's digital store has got you beat you got issues. I’m going to post a question/comment that I would love for someone in the know in their camp would try to respond to ( which they wont ) and here it is: Why the heck are the store updates so sporadic when they are actually done? Anyone? After 8pm EST, really? Seriously? Sometimes it’s 4pm, sometimes 6pm, other times earlier or as is the case today ( well, tonight really ) the time that it still hasn't happened. For your information it is after midnight. Exactly forty-five minutes after midnight. That is now the next day... and still no store update.

Is it really that complicated of an operation to actually release the store update on a CONSISTENT basis? Is there some form of nuclear physics that must be taken into consideration of said operation that makes it so difficult for this to be accomplished? I don’t get it. You know what is going up in the store and the date… I don’t comprehend how knowing those two factors you can’t consistently get the update done in a timely fashion. Heck I would take a late update every time if it meant counting on a specific time, every time, it would be done.Perhaps it is my impatience but certainly I can’t be the only multiple console owning chap here. I prefer my digital downloads on my PS3 because I’m somewhat of a Trophy whore and I genuinely prefer playing on my PS3, but really why should I wait til whenever you guys decide to get off of your incompetent duffs to actually implement it when I can just go somewhere else and download said game I want ( if it's on multiple platforms )? Or wait all friggin’ day to download a full retail game digitally when I can just go to Gamestop or Walmart and pick up a copy? What is the deterrent for me to say "fuck it" and not buy anything? Eventually even the most fervent of fans start to question stupidity. Ask some of those gamers who paid for Xbox Live and got tired of defending the cost. Now I’m not a business expert or analyst with sales stats pertaining to your digital sales but I’ll wager you guys are losing a LOT of lost sales because of you folks not getting your ducks in a row when it comes to this.



I know this hasn't been talked about from game sites, probably cause they just get their download code for their review copy all easy-peasy early but for the rest of us peons who actually pay for their shit and expect you know, a reliable service this has been an ongoing issue for a while now. If Sony is even remotely eyeballing climbing back in the ranks of the console leaderboards, before worrying about graphics, memory, or courting indie devs they may want to start from the basics first. You gotta take baby steps before you can run dog.

Again, could someone sincerely take me through the process of the store update? Maybe it is a herculean chore. Then again, how come all of your competition can do it consistently on a set time?

So... I hear Destructoid sucks now.




I've always believed that the hardest thing in the world to do is be truthful as well as sincere. To speak one's mind for the sake of it without ulterior motives at play. Usually I gravitate to those who practice this whether I agree with their position or not because bottom-line: they're real. They are also, for the most part, quite entertaining to read because of the lack of bullshit found in their blogs. Lurking through the site today I came upon good ol' Whiteboy's little blog. Aside from laughing at his brash, opinionated piece I thought a bit about what he said. Is that crazy fool right? Did the Destructoid that I once knew shrivel and become a less desirable affair?

Well, I've gotta be real here too and the answer to that question is no.

Things change bro... as do all things. One day you're looking in your bathroom mirror at a twenty year old face and the next it is a forty -two year old one with gray hair and more than a few lines adorning your forehead. Time has a way of washing away the old and bringing in the new. Some people can't cope with that or are unwilling to give the new a fair shake. I personally miss Collette's stuff on the front page. I would also love for Chad to write more. Or all the editors write more within the Cblogs. Or have the community manager post something a little more witty than this. Or like good ol' Whiteboy expressed, have more comments through out the whole site but y'know what? That's just my own personal preference. The staff here isn't beholden to just me and what I want, it is beholden to everyone. New and old. Somehow I get the feeling that they try to incorporate as much as what most want but this is the real world and having everything for everyone just isn't going to be feasible.

Now I'll keep this short and sweet because I just wanted to the address the one thing that Whiteboy brought up that usually gets brought up every now and then that makes me scratch my head. The lack of comments in general ( for me specifically the cblogs ). Or the lack of participation in them. Umm, this has been said before so I'm not going to take credit for this little nugget but if you don't like it...do something about it. It's real easy to pop in once every two months, point your finger and complain that the site sucks. Know what's hard? Actually being involved, getting your hands dirty and blogging more, support your fellow community members and staff with comments and feedback, chipping in with selfless acts of kindness on a routine basis. I know...I used to do this a long time ago. I don't anymore because quite frankly I just don't have the time nor the constitution that I once did. Chalk it up to getting old.

I'll tell you what you're not going to see from me either: Me jumping on here telling you this site sucks because of such and such when I'm not even involved in it. That's just plain retarded. Just as retarded as community members knowing what they have to do to get things popping around here and not doing it themselves.

" I hate when quality blogs don't get any comments or recognition but bullshit ones do "

Really? Well how about you do something about that like supporting the good ones and ignoring the drivel. Genius.

" The quality of the front page isn't what it used to be"

Really? Well how about you do something about that like supporting the good ones and ignoring the drivel. Genius.

" It sure as hell seems like nobody has anything to say around here anymore. "

I love this one. What else can we say about video games? Here's a revelation for ya'll... it's all been said before. Sure you can shoehorn something into the subject of video games from a different angle or take but ultimately the writers/bloggers are at the mercy of the people who make the games. If they aren't doing anything new or original in them how do you expect said writers/bloggers who cover them to do likewise?

I've gotta roll. Back to shadows to lurk again. To those who put in the effort in the community and front page keep up the good fight. Lord knows somebody has to take the places of those who left. To those others who don't and complain...from one oldhead to another: kindly shut the fuck up.   read

Taking internet breaks, gaming, and my go at modding my fightstick.



Y'know, there's something to be said about moderation. As in all things can be enjoyed in moderation. Be it drinking, gambling, gaming and even being online. For a bit there my old ass was consumed with being online. Gotta get my gaming news, had to follow someone's Tweets, needed to write a blog, had to listen to a podcast, needed to get on Facebook, and a slew of other internet related things that when viewed from afar seem to be a waste of time. At least to me it is. Took a break. A hiatus. Didn't bother logging on my Gmail, my Twitter, my Facebook, and even Destructoid itself. Know what? My world didn't end. I didn't have withdrawals of any kinds. I didn't miss hearing about anything related to games on a daily basis (perhaps because there are no real gaming news on a daily basis). I enjoyed smaller pleasures like extended sleep, watching movies, and get this...playing games.

The holidays arrived and with them came more games. Some more memorable then others and some I haven't even opened yet. But that's okay too. I don't feel the need to rush through them to the end. This isn't a race. I'm not a game reviewer. I have no actual deadline. I think I'll just try to enjoy them thank you very much. I think I'll also come up with my own conclusions regarding them too. I realized from my " internet hiatus" that I wasn't being spoon-fed someone's opinion about what I was playing, or thinking of getting. I had to arrive at what I thought of something on my own, without getting it from you or her or them. I realized just how much nonsensical bullshit I was subscribing to. Too much negativity, nit-picking, and just plain bullshit. I encourage anyone reading this to unplug for awhile and experience this realization for themselves.

I find it funny coming back and catching up on things how nothing changes. It seems like there is no originality. Everything written is a faint echo of something written before. Hell, the majority of what's written doesn't even have anything to say. Occasionally you'll come across something thoughtful and well written relating to games but those are diamonds in the rough, jewels to be mined - not things out in the open to pick at. Still I see people getting upset about what so and so wrote about whatever game they loved, to the point of cussing them out. That shit is bizarre. If you think about it, it is beyond moronic. People waste their time with this garbage going back and forth. Daily. If you're even remotely getting riled up about something written you gotta take a break brother.

Chill. Go get laid. Hang out with your friends. IRL. Go buy over-priced gaming accessories like me and mod them. Like I did below.

Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to unplug, log-off, not link this blog to my Twitter or Facebook or whore it somewhere else so that you may read it and play SSFIV for five hours straight, if not more. I might even open Gran Turismo 5, or Fallout New Vegas on the 360. I have a lot more time that I can allot to my favorite pastime now that I'm not wasting it on trivialities. I heard 2010 sucked big time for quite a few of yous...personally I thought it was a fantastic year for games, as well as myself. 2011 is looking like the cat's meow too. See you folks online... in moderation of course.   read

ATTENTION: THIS BLOG IS RELEVANT TO YOUR INTERESTS.


It would seem that I was a bit premature in proclaiming the demise of my Y0j1mb0 persona as lo and behold, I am before you yet again in our glorious C Blogs doing what I attempting to blog for the masses. I just wanted to drop in and let those among you that don't know, Destructoid's sister site Flixist is up and operational. What is Flixist? Why it is the swankiest site about movies in the known universe. Why not enrich your lives by shooting over there and checking out what is on tap way yonder. I hear that doing the miniscule feat of clicking on over there will net you these amazing things.


The magnetic power of attracting the opposite sex like never before.

Beard growth will spontaneously appear on your babyface.

If you happen to be a woman, your breasts will become a work of art.

If you happen to be a man, you will be privy to said works of art.

Another excuse from playing actual videogames aside from blogging about them.

OMG. My last blog as Y0j1mb0.


 

I have been telling you kids to get off my lawn for three plus years and nothing has made this old man happier. When I first joined this unbelievable community and adopted my alias of Y0j1mb0, I never thought I would even last this long here. I've seen people come and go. I've seen Destructoid as a site have many changes and yet miraculously, it still stayed the same. Still the staff stayed as passionate about their work, still the community has remained the best ever.

And now we have our new retrofit. Site looks swanky, sexier. Some have reservations about the new look. Change can be a scary thing. Hell, when my wife redecorates my living room it scares me. But you know what? It's gonna be okay folks. The bugs will be worked out, the wrinkles will be ironed, the forums will be better than before. Everything is  going to be groovy because ultimately those behind the curtain of our big show are still there. You are still here and at the end of the day, that's the most important thing here in Destructoid.

Which leads me to this, since the first time I've been blogging here I will actually retire my alias of Y0j1mb   read

Why DESTRUCTOID ROCKS Reason # 1,545: Funktastic Edition.



[ Blogger's note: I was going to wait to post this tomorrow seeing as Tony had a similar post but then I thought: Hell no. This is what Destructoid is all about and the more attention Dtoid and it's ridiculously giving community gets, the better. ]

I think that everybody in our glorious community can pretty much write a blog on a daily basis of why Destructoid as a whole rocks and we would never run out of reasons. That's how rich Destructoid is with it's undeniable love for everybody that frequents here, especially it's community members. I can pretty much testify that I have never seen this amount of joy and love shared among people in any other place. This is yet another example of a community member unprovoked being awesome to another here... specifically me.

In our last episode of Why DESTRUCTOID ROCKS, Ckarasu bestowed upon my person much free swag. And life for me was good. So what could possibly make me create another post of why Destructoid and its community rocks. Why simple. More generosity. Take a gander at this my fellow colleagues and bathe in the feeling of fellowship.

It all began like any other day, except it was two days after my 39th birthday. I felt old, cranky and hoping kids would get on my lawn so I could tell them to get off it. Even watching a good movie wasn't peeling my cantankerous exterior. Then it happened...



Hmmm...who could this be? I mean I live in the country where they make Friday the 13th movies and my closest neighbor is quite a bit away. The mailman, eh? And with a package for me. Oh boy, was it the the truckload of blu-rays I ordered? Can't be, I just ordered them yesterday. No, it was much better than that.



It was from fellow Dtoider and all around cool cat Funktastic. Opening the package I was greeted with his manifesto, really a touching long letter wishing me a Happy Birthday and a few other things like me drawing him something. I gotta tell you, for the longest time he has wanted a drawing of a Domo from me, why I don't know, as my artistic skills are not things to write home about. But I have been working on one for my Canadian friend and soon I'll be able to unveil it and send it his way. Trust me Funk, it will be worth the wait. In the letter he also told me I was finally old enough to see this movie which he sent my way. How on earth he knew this was on top of my Netflix queue is beyond me...



Now let's see what else is in that there picnic basket.



UFC shirt? I'm digging it. Actually I'm a t shirt whore so I dig all shirts and there were quite a bit more he sent.



Yes.



Fun fact: I LOVE wearing t shirts from shitty games. It's the ultimate fashion statement for the game rebels out in the world.



Nice. But wait, there's even more.



I'm actually interested in this upcoming The Hunted game. Cool yet it's the next shirt that I lost it over.



Wow. Thank you Funk!! I've been meaning to get one of these just haven't gotten to it yet and now I have this in my grubby hands. This is beyond appreciated and more than enough to rinse my foul mood I was experiencing earlier away...but there's more still. What I'm about to show you may not mean much to some but to me couldn't have been a better gift to me. If you know anything about me it's that I am obsessed with collecting a certain thing. To the point of having over 45 different ones in my collection. For Funktastic to remember this little factoid about me and actually contribute to my obsession has made me at a loss for words. Have a look at what else he sent.



...



...



...



OMG.

I absolutely love these man. The first one he bought when he was at Greece. It's a travel chess set but surprisingly solid with weight as well as quality. The chess pieces are styled after the Greek gods. Chad may like the fact that the pawn pieces are dolphins frozen jumping in the air. The second one is much bigger, folds in for you to store the chess pieces and looks to have like an Inca design to it. On one side the knights are llamas and on the other side is traditional horses. I love the style of this one a lot. The little board is gorgeous. Can you believe that there is one more thing to show as well? Inside the fold out chess set, this was in it:



Seriously Jonathan, I can't even begin to thank you enough for all of this. Much love brother. The surreal thing is that this is indicative as a whole of just about all the Dtoiders here. Giving, selfless, and just plain awesome. Here's another special thank you to Jonathan/Funktastic. Thanks dude, you're the tits. You will be getting that Samurai Domo drawing very very soon and I'll make sure to post it in a blog before I send it out. People of Destructoid show him some love. And also a thank you to Destructoid as a whole for having the BEST DAMN COMMUNITY EVER.

Reflections of an aging gamer.



In twelve days I will turn thirty-nine. Turn. That word is funny used in this context. As if I will magically age a year's worth of time in the coming days instead of the gradual process that it really is. As I write this, as you read this, both you and I will share this moment of growing old together. I find it curious that as the days pass, the time I invested in frivolous pursuits of vanity are non-existent. I'll never be God's gift to women, though I figured that out a while back ago. My delusions were short-lived in that department. When I buy clothes now, I buy them for whatever need may arise versus whatever new fad or style is current. I find myself subconsciously choosing more laid back, chill music, like the blues, jazz, or slow jams to listen to. I don't actually remember when I stopped watching any kind of music television like MTV or VH1 and the like but I remember that being part of a routine that I had, which I unceremoniously cut off without a thought. I think I came to the conclusion that the music industry nowadays relies too much on a visual ingredient that adds nothing to it aside from making you associate a video to a so called artist. I remember just listening to music with my eyes closed and just enjoying it. Letting it take me somewhere.

The only constants in my life have always been the usual suspects: books, films, my love of collecting chess boards, and of course videogames. I was fourteen years old when Pac- Man debuted in the arcades. Fifteen when Dragon's Lair hit the scene. I remember thinking I died and gone to heaven. That was next-gen to me and the word next-gen didn't even exist in my prepubescent mind back then. That same year The Last Starfighter was in theaters and I remember daydreaming that If I had a high enough score in the arcades, I too may be recruited by some alien race to save them heroically. My imagination was strong and had a kung-fu grip. I remember actually playing Pac-Man on the Atari 2600. Except Pac-Man didn't look so hot at home. He couldn't face the direction he was turning to. Just kept looking at the right of the screen no matter what. Maybe Atari 2600's Pac-Man was imagining he was off somewhere saving an alien race too because he didn't seem into it.

But y'know what? It didn't matter. It was still awesome because I'm playing this sub par version of an actual arcade game that I sunk a Titanic's worth of quarters to... at home. Yeah. More memories flash. NES, SNES, Genesis, Sega CD, Saturn, Jaguar, 3DO, PS1, Dreamcast, to the recent systems of PS2, Xbox, Xbox360, and PS3. I could probably go down the line and tell, at the very least, a story about a game played and associating it with something pivotal that happened to me while growing up. Growing wiser...growing older. A lot of things have changed about me through the years. Many interests have come and gone. Many dislikes have turned to likes and vice versa, yet as I look at my own kids now, playing their own videogames, it makes me smile. That same smile I had when I was playing Pac-Man when I was fourteen. The very same one when I imagined myself the last starfighter, because another batch of future consoles will inadvertently chaperon and comfort them, through their own trials, through their own tribulations, as they once did me.   read

October 31st can't come soon enough.



Forgive my intrusion into your videogame news, previews, reviews and hipster critique of the genre ya'll love so much but I just saw this for the first time and practically soiled myself with excitement. Considering this is the internet and this is like a couple of days old, this may also be considered "ancient", seeing as time online is multiplied by a factor of twenty. Factor in that this is also not what would constitute a "blog" and I have now broken the golden trinity of posting something in our C Blogs. My apologies. But to those who haven't peeped this out yet nor have this tv show in their radar perhaps this trailer will rectify that.

PS3 Friday Night Fights: The Return



And we're back. Or specifically our glorious post is back on track. Let's just cut to the chase and simply state I've been a bit busy with a few things but all is back on track now. While we're at it one of the things I've been busy with is the phenomenal game called Scott Pilgrim Vs The World. Seriously I haven't even read a single Scott Pilgrim comic nor have seen the movie yet and I'm here to tell those who are in the same boat that the game is simply brilliant. A 2D masterpiece that is a loving tribute the oldheads and retro enthusiasts alike. Think River City Ransom to the 5th power and you're almost there. Also this is one of the few games on the PS3 that allows multiple PSN sign ins for local play. Hell yes.

But enough drooling over this game let's get to our rotation of games for tonight and the hosts that are, well hosting them. It begins with...



Game:Blazblue: Continuum Shift Time:8PM EST Host:Jack of Trades

Why not join Dtoiders Jack, Celis 777 with his ridiculous Carl, and Co. for the chaos and insanity that is BlazeBlue CS ? The netcode is brilliant, the fighting engine refined from the 1st game and it's still 2D bliss in motion. I'll see if I can wrangle control of my den to join the ruckus myself. My Haukumen needs practice.

After this is...



Game:Battlefield Bad Company 2 Time:10PM EST Host:Nexus

War never changes. But its participants do. Who will join us tonight in the jungles and snowy landscapes of Battlefield Bad Company 2 ? Haven't yet gotten all the Trophies this game dishes out for its multiplayer component? Haven't witnessed the almighty precision and power that only the Dtoid Company possesses? Then why not join us and show the competition what a real adversary looks like.

Then after that is...



Game:MAG Time:11:30PM EST Host:Elsa & The Dtoid MAG Clan

The ultimate teamwork simulator. Warring PMCs. Surgical strikes. The euphoria of a well implemented plan. Elsa screaming at you to shape up. Its all here folks and there is nothing quite like it on the PS3. Get your ass moving and join us spread the word that Raven isn't synonymous with a bird but a well oiled, deadly squadron whose footsteps usher in the opposition's demise.

And finally we wrap it up with...




Game:SSFIV Time:Midnight EST Host:Me aka K0wb0y-b33b0p on PSN

For the nocturnal crowd there is this. The game of forever. Anybody care to kick my ass on SSFIV? Do you have the reflexes of a cheetah? Would you love nothing more to show me and other Dtoiders how badass you are in this game? Then come on brother. Show us but don't be surprised if we send you packing sucking yo thumb back to yo momma.

There you have it folks. The games and times are set. All that is needed is you. Just leave your PSN ID below and let us know what game you want to roll with us. See you ladies and gents online.   read

PS3 Friday Night Fights: DOUBLE XP for MAG + KILLZONE 2 Edition



Things that need to be said before we begin. I had quite a few of you want Killzone 2 to be put back on this week because last week they couldn't attend. Easy. Done. Next I wanted to let those MAG players know that DOUBLE XP is still a continuing thing if you pick the "Directive" mode. Also it seems that the MAG devs gave us a little something as in this:

That “something” we’re passing along is also something that many of you have been asking us for with great enthusiasm for months. And so, it is with great pleasure, that I announce that starting today — right this moment in fact — that all maps in our “Sabotage” game mode are going “Faction Neutral!” If you ever wanted to play against the Valor PMC as a member of the competing Raven Industries on a map that belonged to the third faction, SVER, that option is now yours! We’d like to think of it as a way to experience existing content in an all-new way, and we hope you feel the same.

The best part? You don’t have to download a thing to do it. We’ve already set everything up so that all you have to do is log on to the game, select the Sabotage game mode with whatever your PMC of choice may be, and have fun. It’s just that simple.

We hope you enjoy this gift to you as much as we enjoy giving it, and once again, want to thank each and every one of you who have supported MAG in its first half-year. Hopefully, you’ll like what we have in store for the second-half just as much.

Those guys are so nice. Link is here for more info. Now to our lineup of games. It begins with...



[ Game: BlazBlue Host: Jack of all Trades Time: 8PM EST till whenever you kiddies stop playing! ]

One again Old Jacky boy has been itching to play BlazBlue again. It seems he thinks he can dominate all of ya'll with his Tager. Show him the error of his ways and let him know how foolish it is to underestimate the heart of a real champion. I may just dust off this game and activate my cybernetic Hakumen back into action. After all the 27th is but mere days away and the new Continuum Shift will drop then for 39.99. Time to get back into the swing of things.



[ Game: KILLZONE 2 Host: Nexus Time: 9PM EST till whenever you kiddies stop playing! ]

Been awhile since we rolled on this game. Considering the sequel is looming on the horizon I figured now would be a good time to revisit the lands of the Helghast once again. Anybody want to join us on the pistol whipping, sniper cloaking, engineer turret goodness of Killzone 2? Then by all means, grab a gun and lets do this. I think I still need to unlock some things on this.

Then its on to...



[ Game: MAG Host: Dtoid Clan/Elsa Time: 11PM EST till whenever you kiddies stop playing! ]

MAG...its awesome. You should get this game if you don't already have it, like us cool kids do. Why not join Elsa and the Destructoid MAG Clan in the fusion of actual teamwork and strategy that is MAG. If you haven't giving this game a try yet, its time you should. And remember to give your undying support for Raven.

And last but not least...



[ Game: Super Street Fighter IV Host: Me or as I'm known on PSN: k0wb0y-b33b0p Time: Midnight EST till whenever brother! ]

Yeah I don't tire of this game. Neither should you as this is the best fighting game on the planet. Seriously. You know that other game you think is better, yeah.. you're wrong. It's this one. Anybody willing to roll with me on this game? Bring it.

And that's it folks. Don't have a social life of any kind? Did your girlfriend break up with you? Dog or cat die on you? Then step right up and put that silly stuff aside and bask in the merriment that you can only get from our PS3 Friday Night Fights.   read

PS3 Friday Night Fights: Nothing's Changed Edition!



My apologies gentlemen this post is a bit tardy due to REASONS. So lets get the whole sheebango going. Before I do though I want to share a milestone in my gaming adventures. I reached Level 15 recently on MAG! Not to big of a deal but just having a very small leadership role in the game is friggin' awesome I can only imagine what its like calling in an airstrike on the game later on. Enough about my MAG love let's get the show on the road.



[ Game: BlazBlue Host: Jack of all Trades Time: 8PM EST till whenever you kiddies stop playing! ]

Once again Old Jacky boy has been itching to play BlazBlue again. It seems he thinks he can dominate all of ya'll with his Tager. Show him the error of his ways and let him know how foolish it is to underestimate the heart of a real champion. I may just dust off this game and activate my cybernetic Hakumen back into action.

After this will be...



[ Game: Transformers: War for Cybertron Host: Liam Time: 9PM EST till whenever you kiddies stop playing! ]

Let's see, there is 4 player co op aplenty, as well as the standard multiplayer matches which will net you precious XP to level up that class you're working on. Why not do it with a fellow Dtoider watching your robotic back? The more the more I always say. Anybody interested in playing this game leave your PSN tag below and like minded people will invite you to their game. I have Liam as a host but I may need additional hosts as well. Autobots...rollout.



[ Game: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Host: Moosehole Time: 9PM EST till whenever you kiddies stop playing! ]

For those not busy transforming there's this.Battlefield Bad Company 2. So the new Co op DLC dropped. You may want to get that and join our ragtag crew for some action. I hear you youngster love action. They'll also be playing the regular modes as well. Haven't played this yet with us online? Man are you missing hearing Takeshi cuss while playing. That alone is entertainment. Come join us soldiers and show the competition what boots are supposed to do...not to walk on but to place them on the neck of those who oppose us.

Then its on to...



[ Game: MAG Host: Dtoid Clan/Elsa Time: 11PM EST till whenever you kiddies stop playing! ]

I just recently purchased this. I just recently got addicted to this game. I just recently have come to the conclusion that Raven is better than all the others because they look cooler than the rest. LOGIC. Why not join Elsa and the Destructoid MAG Clan in the fusion of actual teamwork and strategy that is MAG. If you haven't giving this game a try yet, its time you should. Definitely a time to play this game Ladies & Gents.

And last but not least...



[ Game: Super Street Fighter IV Host: Me or as I'm known on PSN: k0wb0y-b33b0p Time: Midnight EST till whenever brother! ]

Yeah I don't tire of this game. Neither should you as this is the best fighting game on the planet. Seriously. You know that other game you think is better, yeah.. you're wrong. It's this one. Anybody willing to roll with me on this game? Bring it.

And that's it folks. Don't have a social life of any kind? Did your girlfriend break up with you? Dog or cat die on you? Then step right up and put that silly stuff aside and bask in the merriment that you can only get from our PS3 Friday Night Fights.   read
