Wii Owners: May I have your ATTENTION.


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.   read

Why DESTRUCTOID ROCKS reason # 1,545: Ckarusa Edition.



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.   read

PS3 Friday Night Fights: TRANSFORM EDITION!



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.   read

PS3 Friday Night Fights: We're Back Edition!



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...

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...

PS3 Friday Night Fights: SHOCKING OLD SCHOOL EDITION!!



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. ]   read

PS3 Friday Night Fights: Modnation Edition!!



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.

Why I want to violently throw up when I see yet again another "girl gamer" blog.



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.

Maybe its just me because I'm old, happily married, and don't have self delusions of getting e-laid with any competent female blogger online writing one of these particular pieces about the follies of being a "girl gamer" and all it entails but every time I see the word "girl" in their blog title, followed by word "gamer" I feel like retching. This feeling obviously must be exclusive to just me because typically when one of these blogs ( whether well written or not ) pop up, everyone is in agreement how revolutionary and unique the girl's bullet points are. Y'know, the same cliche points that have been addressed ( typically better ) by every other female who stood up to the plate before as well as the ones who will surely do so time and time again in the future. It's like certain female gamers have a chain letteresque gene in their DNA that forces them to do this, usually in their introductory blog, if not shortly thereafter.

The same blog that regurgitates the tired old misconceptions/generalizations that ignorant people have spouted, accompanied by this ethereal magical female logic that only they posses to refute, enlighten and school the mass male gamer demographic. To make us empathize with their plight of being a "girl gamer". Gosh, I didn't know how horrible female gamers have had it. How do you get out of bed every morning knowing the horrors that lurk and await you in the gaming community? Such brave souls you are.

Here's a newsflash for those who are contemplating on writing one of these and haven't succumbed to that "girl gamer" itch yet. Your gender isn't as alien as you may think it is. You are not from a different far away planet in another solar system. If you happen to open your eyes while you're walking about, you too may discover that there sure are a lot of other females roaming in our ordinary lives. Get this, its like that with games. There are male gamers and there are quite a lot of female gamers too. Ones that even don't call themselves "girls". Shocking as that may be to some of you, this is true. Also, get this: we know you women have more to yourselves than just a vagina and breasts too. I don't think every other day we need to be informed that you actually have properly working brains inside of your skulls. Or that you're just like us when it comes to gaming, we get it. Or maybe its just me that gets it because I have sight beyond sight. Maybe the rest of the male population does need a refresher course daily to remind them of that because you know... us men gamers be stupid.   read

PS3 Friday Night Fights: Posse Edition



"That's right. I've killed women and children. I've killed just about everything that walks or crawled at one time or another. And I'm here to kill you, Little Bill, for what you did to Ned."

Its Friday which means this old man is once again posting a Friday Night Fights post to rustle you banditos up and get our online shenanigans on.

[ Section 8 - Host: Me aka k0wb0y-b33b0p Time - 12AM EST to whenever ]

I picked this game up for 14.99 on the PSN Store. Guess what? It was a steal for that price. 32 player online, Clan support, varying classes, empathizes team work, deployable turrets, tanks, weapon depots, bot support, stat tracking, and jetpacks. This game has some MEAT on its bones. If you haven't given this game a shot yet, you need to. Join me Moose, Pikeman, Patmann and Co. as we show the competition what teamwork and winning is all about. Seriously if you even remotely like gameplay like that's found in Tribes, you'll be dig this.Highly Recommended at this price point. Join us!!

LOVE SHMUPS?? You may want to take a closer look at this.



If there is a genre of videogames that I love more than fighting games, it's the shmup. Being older than the average Dtoider here I still remember the 80's quite vividly and their prominent stable of vertical 2-D bullet hell shooters. Often times these games were incredibly challenging with nary a second given to find that sweet spot where you would be safe while systematically blowing away the thunderstorm of enemies unleashed on you. The weak willed players would play for a few and move on muttering to themselves how retarded the games were, yet those who truly accepted the challenge and committed themselves to the onslaught found not only the path of success but the pure bliss of exhibiting those hidden skills and reflexes reserved for the truly awesome gamer that were hidden inside them all along.



Come to think of it, truly good fighting games make you feel that way too. There will be a certain switch that gets flipped when you come to understanding the game mechanics and not worry about the implementation of the actual moves themselves but the application of strategy. That epiphany, to me, is one of the best rewards that gaming has to offer. The synergy of you and the game, not worrying about the controls because they no longer exist. It's just your will to survive, to win, and what you do with what is given to you to eliminate your foe. Good shmups give you that same sensation and it looks like eastasiasoft's second game Söldner-X 2: Final Prototype may very well be the next challenge you might want to enlist for.

[embed]174528:30090[/embed]

If you were like me, you probably downloaded their first game Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer and loved the beautiful HD graphics but were a bit frustrated with certain aspects of the game. That being that it was sometimes beyond unfair. At some intervals in the game you were going to take damage no matter what you did. There's a difference between a robust difficulty and just being damn cheap. Their fist game was like that. Yet even though they had cheap sprinkled throughout, it was a testament to the overall quality, that I still wanted to play more of it. I still occasionally play their first game through its hellish difficulty to better my score on the leaderboards. To eventually best that game. Maybe someday but for now its sequel is here today on the PSN store for a mere 12.99 ( when it updates ) and from what I've seen and heard from the developers, it seems that they have addressed the weaknesses of their first game and built a must have gorgeous sequel. Here's a list of features in the new game:

* Seven unique action-loaded levels with fierce boss battles, staged across underwater worlds, ice caves, tunnel worlds, space and other deadly scenarios.
* Unlock bonus features in challenge mode, ranging from useful to prestigious rewards.
* HD graphics with 3D backgrounds in up to 1080p, combined with addictive, classic 2D gameplay.
* Dynamic score-linked difficulty system, making the game accessible for newcomers, yet challenging and rewarding for hardcore gamers.
* Two new playerships with distinct characteristics and weapon systems to choose from.
* A new bullet pattern system that requires more skill than ever.
* Brand new limit attacks and fourfold chaser system to face the most dangerous tasks.
* Detailed online high score ranking tables and replay file sharing.
* Hidden bonus elements, including a tribute to Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer.
* Adrenaline pumping soundtrack with 30 unique tracks and hundreds of dedicated sound effects.
* Multilingual text support: English voiceover with English, French or German subtitles.



Personally I'm digging the score-linked difficulty that changes what's thrown at you based on how good you are. The better you are ranked, the more enemies are thrown at you. That and the replay file sharing pretty much sold me on the game. Having just to go to the leaderboards, pick the highest score and then view their replay to see how the hell they did it is going to be fantastic. It doesn't hurt that the game is friggin' gorgeous either. Running at a native 720p with crisp bullet hell eye candy and ridiculous bosses? Yes, please. Here's one more video of it for you to peep at.

Again, if you love shmups, you may want to take a closer look at this game.   read

PS3 Friday Night Fights: I feel like crap Edition.



This post is quite tardy. I'm actually surprised it's even live because today, just like yesterday, my old ass is feeling under the weather. I feel like shit to be honest. I rarely get sick so when I do I can't bear it and act like the biggest baby known to man. So yeah, woe is me, I have a cold and I sound like Barry White with the congestion I'm carrying. Anyway, lets get to the PS3 FNF rotation. As typical there is a new game in our rotation. Somehow I get the feeling that ya'll rustlers will know what it is.

It begins with...



[ The Chronicles Of Riddick: Assault On Dark Athena Time: 7pm EST Host: garethxxgod aka Papa_Chewie on PSN ]

It seems garethxxgod thinks he's Vin Diesel and he's going to rape you on this game. Show him the error of his logic. Show him how the power of greed for free swag overshadows and compensates for his proposed skill level in this game. This free swag contest he's running is still in effect. Join him and take him out

This is followed by...

PS3 Friday Night Fights: Vin Diesel is gonna RAPE you Edition! Also, PRIZES.



It always surprises when a community member out of the goodness of their heart just out of the blue wants to do something for the Dtoid Community. It shouldn't surprise me because just about everybody here is awesome like that, yet every time it does happens I still get taken aback. Case in point community member garethxxgod's contest in which he is giving away these following prizes:



A sealed copy of Mystery Science Theater 3000 Volume 16! With a Tom Servo Toy!



And for all you Nintendo fanatics a full 46 pack box of Nintendo Game Packs! With 2 stickers per pack that's 92 stickers!

Not to mention a PS3 game that you should have in your collection because its kickass. All the info on that is on that there link above. The cliffnotes version, play The Chronicles Of Riddick: Assault On Dark Athena with him in multiplayer mode and beat him. Few things: The Chronicles Of Riddick: Assault On Dark Athena is an awesome game that retails under 20 bucks so pick it up and enjoy the game for what it is... a kick ass game with the added benefit of having a retouched HD Escape from Butcher Bay, then join us tonight to take garethxxgod's swag away from him. I would also like to express how generous and awesome he is for doing this for us. I would also like to thank him for the shirt he's sending my way too ( Wait, that hasn't happened yet :D ).

Now that that's out of the way let us get to our rotation of games and the hosts that will be doing their thing. It begins with...



[ The Chronicles Of Riddick: Assault On Dark Athena Time: 7pm EST Host: garethxxgod aka Papa_Chewie on PSN ]

It seems garethxxgod thinks he's Vin Diesel and he's going to rape you on this game. Show him the error of his logic. Show him how the power of greed for free swag overshadows and compensates for his proposed skill level in this game. See you in the dark.

Then after this is...



[ Lead & Gold: Gangs of the Old West - Host: Solgrim Time - 8PM to 9PM EST ]

It's time to throw down, boy! The antics of the wild west are in full force here. Stealing sacks of gold? Check. Throwing sticks of dynamite? Check. Shooting people's hats off their noggin'? Check. Insanely FUN multiplayer game to play with awesome like minded Dtoider? CHECK. Join us. Really. This game NEEDS to be played by the LOT of yous.

This is followed by The Game of Forever



[ SSFIV - Host: Nexus Time - 9PM to 10PM EST ]

Think I'm done flipping out over this game? Think again. If I didn't make myself clear before in days past, let me reiterate...it's awesome. Join Nexus & Co. on the PS3 and let's get ready to roll. Team Battle, Endless, name your pleasure and it will be accommodated.

After this is...



[ 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.

Then its time to enter...



[ Section 8 - Host: Me aka k0wb0y-b33b0p Time - 11PM EST System - PS3 ]

I picked this game up for 14.99 on the PSN Store. Guess what? It's a steal for that price. 32 player online, Clan support, varying classes, empathizes team work, deployable turrets, tanks, weapon depots, bot support, stat tracking, and jetpacks. This game has some MEAT on its bones. If you haven't given this game a shot yet, at this price point ( that will only last for a few days and then revert back to 30 bucks ), you need to. Join me Moose, Pikeman, Patmann and Co. as we show the competition what teamwork and winning is all about. Seriously if you even remotely like gameplay like that's found in Tribes, you'll be dig this.Highly Recommended at this price point. Join us!!

And finally for the nocturnal gamers out there...



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

This shouldn't come as a surprise. For the nocturnal crowd who stay up later than most I'll be playing this again. Except I'll be there trying to kick your butt. I've been practicing. Not quite where I need to be but pretty proficient. Anybody want to take this old man down a peg. Looking at you Smokey. Tonight might be your best shot. Join me gentlemen.

TO EVERYONE: due to the possible overload of awesomeness that is SSFIV 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.

PS3 Friday Night Fights: EXPLOSION EDITION!



BOOM BABY. It's that time again my fellow gaming sophisticates. The fifth day of the week has arrived and we are once again using it as our foundation to cement all that is awesome about our community: that being getting together as one and the playing of videogames. Yes marvel and bathe in the camaraderie and fellowship as we climax together to reach the pinnacles of nerdgasm. There may be firsts for some. Maybe tonight will be the night where your combo you've been working on in SSFIV will actually come to pass in an actual fight against a fellow Dtoider, or perhaps you will get to play MAG with Elsa and witness the all mighty reprimand she will give you if you suck, or maybe...just maybe, if you're lucky, you'll get to hear my oh-so-velvety sexy voice online and leave your significant other to vie for my attention. All this awesomeness could happen, if you join us.

Lets begin with the rotation of games and the hosts that will be, well...hosting them. Tonight's rotation is graced with the debut of Lead & Gold: Gangs of the Old West. A FANTASTIC downloadable game that can be had for a mere 14.99 on the PSN Store right now. If you want to know a bit more about it, head on to my mini review of the game right here, get it, then join us in that order. Where was I? Ahh, yes. The rotation. It begins with...
