For those who are weird and may actually want to read more of my stuff here are things off the blog I do. Occasionally I wrote for Flixist, a rad movie site where, get this, we talked about and reviewed movies. I have long since stopped writing there ( and here ) as I feel like I've said all I have had cooped up in my head without sounding redundant.

Picture Unrelated yet nevertheless Epic due to it being Dtoid's own Mr.Sadistic.

I just recently received Tatsunoko v Capcom as a gift & I noticed something while playing it for a few hours... it kicks major ass. As in I should of gotten this game a looooong time ago. So the first thing I did when my wife pried the controller off my hands because she wanted to watch the telly was immediately go to our award winning forums ( Zodiac Eclipse made me say that ) and peruse our unofficial fighting game tournaments. I couldn't wait to join one for the Wii and get to tusslin' with some Dtoiders on this gem of a game. Except when I clicked on that there link for Unofficial tournaments this is all I saw...



For those whose peepers aren't up to snuff what I noticed was the lack of any Wii on the thread period. I understand there aren't an overflowing games on the Wii that are online enabled but surely Tatsunoko v Capcom should of broken this mold. It would seem not. But I am here to remedy that. If you are a Wii owner who yearns for the bitter competition this game can bring, who wants to show the community how bad ass you are in this game...by all means step up to the plate. On the newly minted Wii Fight Club: Ranbat Version 0.



The premiere unofficial Tatsunoko v Capcom tournament. Any takers? As with all tournaments worth their salt there should be some grand prize of some sort. Alas I have no fancy grand prize but I do have an extra copy of my favorite Wii game I can toss your way.



Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure.I'm thinking if you don't own this you suck as a gamer and in life. And if you do well I guess I'll find something else to give you. I'll ransack my closet as I'm quite sure I could feasibly find more stuff to throw in. Some old socks, a razor to get that beard ritual started, more games...who knows. It isn't all that but consider it a minuscule incentive on top of the real prize of the bragging rights of being the best of the best on Tatsunoko v Capcom here in Dtoid. The winner will also get a shiny new Raul Julia Bison Badge in the forums, that alone should compel you to join the ruckus. Also, those elitist fighting game fanatics on the 360 ( & to a smaller degree the PS3 ) wont be there with their HELLAFRAY nonsense.

All interested parties holla at me here and shoot on over to the new Wii Fight Club: Ranbat Version 0 forum thread made ever so easy by clicking right hurr where you will find the rules and such to get this started. That is all. You may now return to your normal C blog sifting for videogamez news routine.










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 member unprovoked being awesome to another here... specifically me.

In our last episode of Why DESTRUCTOID ROCKS, WryGuy 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.

One thing though, these pictures were taken from my shitty digital camera as my others were inoperable due to my lazy ass not charging their batteries. So if you dig pictures that look like 70's porn stills...you're in luck. Sadly, Vanessa del Rio is absent from them though.

It all started with me checking the mail & getting this.



What's this? I reckon' I better open it up. Fast forward 15 min later... that damn adhesive glue was retarded.



Hmmm...



Hell yeah. I have been wanting to play this game for quite awhile but could never find a copy of it whenever I went to GameStop. I don't care about the lack of the original box or anything like that, I'll leave that to the collectors of the world. I want to play the game! And now I've got it in my grubby hands!



I'm playing this game after I finish this blog but wait there's more. No, you got to be kidding me. Ckarusa this is too much. A brand spanking new copy of...



FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU



I have been meaning to get this game and for whatever reason haven't. If you even remotely know me you know I love fighting games, so this gift is appreciated beyond comprehension and now that I have it a tournament is in question! Look on the forums soon for information.




Ckarusa... you are the MAN.

Know that I didn't even ask for any of this stuff. He just did out of the blue. 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 Ckarusa. Thanks dude, you're the tits. I'm gonna let you beat me in SSFIV the next time we play. People show him some love. And also a thank you to Destructoid as a whole for having the BEST DAMN COMMUNITY EVER.

It was only a matter of time before this game made our rotation and the time is now. Reclusive Dtoider Liam requested this be on the lineup and I can't refuse anyone's request. I'm nice like that. Also I picked up the game recently and yes folks, this game is a blast to play. Now if only someone would just make an awesome Thundercats videogame and my life would be complete. But this isn't about my fantasies of being Lion-O...this is about Dtoid's premiere night for online shenanigans with one another. So sit back and relax as the line up of games is but a paragraph away. It begins with...



[ 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.










And just like that, I'm back from my R & R at the beach. I can honestly say that as enjoyable as it was to relax and chill by the ocean, the most enjoyable part for me was coming home and crashing in my own bed. I can never relax in another bed no matter how comfortable, unless of course if its inhabited by nude supermodels. Also I kinda had my fill of seeing people not in the peak of utmost physical condition parading around in revealing bathing suits clearly not meant for them. I'm afraid my eyes and the inner realm of my subconscious have been traumatized.

But enough about me, lets talk of games and the playing of them and what better way to do just that then to play with your fellow Dtoiders on the online shenanigans that we call PS3 Friday Night Fights! Let's get to our rotation as it's been awhile. It begins with...



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

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. Not only that but starting tomorrow or to be exact 3 AM EST double XP starts for this. 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.

That's right ladies. It's old school time. Time to blast with games from the past ( with maybe a newer game thrown in ). So what are we rocking tonight? Who is that shocked Mexican on the header? Will Takeshi come out and play tonight? Will Elsa once and for all get you whippersnappers to stay off her digital lawn? So many questions but tonight all of these will be answered...if you participate. Let's get to the rotation Ladies and Gents. It begins with...



[ Game: SSF2 HD Turbo Remix Host: Nexus Time: 8pm EST ]

If you're talking OLD SCHOOL then its gotta be have this game right here. No focus attacks, no BS. Just kicks, punches, and a few Hadokens. Think you can survive a match without the game generously giving you Ultras to win? Then meet me outside The Crazy Buffalo, I'll be the dude dressed in white.

After this is the only newer game in our rotation...



[ BattleField Bad Company 2 - Host: Moosehole Time - 9pm to 10PM EST ]

Mossehole once again takes up hosting duties for BBC2. Anybody want to join his squad of Dtoiders as we get our rush & sabotage on? Have I said how awesome this game is yet? No? Then let me tell ya, it's awesome...especially with us!

After this is...



[ KILLZONE 2 - Host: Takeshi Time - 10pm to 11PM EST ]

Takeshi is calling out all you mothers that enlisted in the Killzone Dtoid Clan once again. Its time to get back to those dusty brown and orange shores of K2 and show everybody online that nobody knows what online domination is all about until they stepped in the same battlefield with us. Need some cloaking snipers tonight. As well as engineers. Any takers?

Then after, why not some...



[ Metal Gear Online - Host: Moosehole Time - 11pm to 12PM EST ]

I hope ya'll kept up with your Konami ID's and passwords, cause we be playing this game tonight! Seriously you may want to download the latest patch if you haven't rolled with this game in awhile as it is beefy. While you're at it got to the Konami Website and retrieve your game ID from them too. Konami's online is crazy bonkers. As is this game, but it's still fun. Especially with us for company.

Then we finish the night with none other than...



[ SOCOM bitches!! - Host: Me, k0wb0y-b33b0p as I am known on PSN Time - 12pm to whenever EST ]

Bring it, Men! Join me, k0wb0y-b33b0p and Co to see how we roll. The SOCOM Destructoid Clan is still up and operational ( aching to play this game once again ) and being a member is just a comment placed here away. I will be your host and it's only fitting that Midnight is the time we stomp our Navy Seal boots on the neck of our opposition. Join us , Soldier!!

[ Blogger's Note: As is NOT typical MAG will be a thing that will NOT happen tonight due to our old schooless vibe. Instead WARHAWK might be. Due to teams, and or differing hosts, know that all you have to do is leave your PSN tag below and someone from the Dtoid WARHAWK clan will present you with info and an invitation. Elsa is nice like that. ]










Its Friday which means this old man is once again posting a PS3 Friday Night Fights post to awaken that dormant sleepy gamer within you and get you to actually play those games you have laying around with other gamers, specifically us. This week's latest addition? A little game called Modnation Racers, which has the undeniable fun factor in spades. Also that there header is a picture grab from our very own Dtoider Solgrim. I have to say I'm very impressed with his creation. Then again I may be biased due to my fanatical obsession of all things Street Fighter. But enough of this, lets get to our rotation.

It begins with..



[ RDR - Host: Nexus Time - 8PM to Whenever EST ]

Red Dead Redemption. Brothers & Sisters, if you haven't played this game yet you are missing out. Time to join our posse and mosey online with us and enjoy the vistas as well as creating your own brand of justice or infamy. Haven't yet tried it with others? You are missing out. Rectify that tonight with your fellow Dtoiders.

After or even during this will be...



[ Modnation Racers - Host: Solgrim Time - 9PM to Whenever EST ]

Yeah this game is a blast to play. Join us with your custom mod and let's see who'll end up first on that there finish line without a rocket lodged in their brains. Seriously once you get the hang of drifting in this game it's butter after that. Give this game a try. Fun will definitely be had!



[ Battle Field Bad Company 2 - Host: SantanaClaus aka Moosehole Time - 10pm to 11PM EST System - PS3 ]

I LOVE this game. This game is kickass. I LOVE shooting people in this game. This game is kickass. I LOVE shooting an RPG into a building full of hiding snipers and leveling the building on them. This game is kickass. Join Moose & Dtoid Company as we bring the pain. Also the new DLC camo & weapons rule.

.And finally for the nocturnal gamers out there...



[ SSFIV - Host: ME. or as I'm known on PSN:k0wb0y-b33b0p - 11PM to 12 EST ]

Bring it baby. My El Fuerte & T.Hawk are ready for some cooking time. I welcome all challengers. That means you reading this. Don't be scared, I don't bite. I'm a beginner too, just like some of you. C'mon and join me and lets have oodles of fun learning this game together. lol

TO EVERYONE: due to the possible overload of awesomeness that is Red Dead Redemption these lobbies may be filled. Leave your PSN/Gamertag below if you are willing to partake and be a stand by host.

Hope to see you Ladies & Gents online.

[ Blogger's Note: As typical MAG will be a thing that will happen. Due to teams, and or differing hosts, know that all you have to do is leave your PSN tag below and someone from the Dtoid MAG clan will present you with info and an invitation. Elsa is nice like that. Hopefully though, she'll be playing Battlefield Bad Company 2 with us tonight as she didn't the last time >:( ]
