My name is Zack Shannon I'm 19 and I live in Aloha Oregon. I started gaming when I was 3 playing my dad's NES, but I never really got into "retro" games. I really got into gaming when I was given an N64 for Christmas. I played my N64 every chance I had. I would get a few friends together and have sleep overs and play Mario Party until 5 am. Playing Mario party, Golden eye, Zelda, Harvest moon, perfect dark there where just so many games we played on that system. The next system I got was the Ps2. I remember going to a Costco with my parents and buying Kingdom Hearts BEFORE I even had the system, but even up to then I would of still been been considered a casual gamer (maybe on the border) It was when I picked up Halo 2 on the xbox is when my gaming life really took off. I owe alot to Halo 2. (which I will get into in a later blog) in 2007 my parents got a new cable package that included G4. I started watching shows like AOTS and XPLAY and I realized that there was this online community of gamers that I didn't know existed outside of XBL. I started reading news sites like Kotaku and subscribing to Game Informer and going to the forums on g4tv.com and that's when I realized something... I love video games.
After getting a few comments about it and a surprising number of messages via steam about it Fanboy Tuesday Will now be known as Tard Tuesday.
Crackdown 2 has come's out today and its getting above average reviews. Currently it has a 72 on metacritics. Now I'm going to say this now, 72 is not a bad score. I don't know how everyone got this 7 is a bad score thing stuck in there head but 7 is a good score, but not everyone agree's with me...
Not on PS3, so who cares? You care enough to comment. Isn't that sad?
ppl who own an 360? I'm still w8ing 4 an 360 only game 2 be good enough 2 make me buy it, til then Pc & Ps3 gaming it is.. I know that it's possible for this to be a troll comment, BUT If it's real I fear for humanity.... Again...
ps3 is a joke
"if ps3 is such a joke then why did the Microsoft just copy the ps3 with their 360 slim? I just think you're a little bitter cause one of the better exclusives for the 360 years ago just went down the tubes. Don't get me wrong, I love my 360 and my ps3 but the ps3 does sooooo much.."
"This just adds to the fact that the PlayStation 3 will always have better exclusives. The only good 360 exclusive are Halo and Gears, and those are both shooters. Yeah, the Xbox 360 has Kinect, does anyone care about Kinect? Whatever, the Xbox 360 also has Mass Effect, but thats really it.
@Fanboy 1-6 and all the other sad PS3 fanboys Im sorry but you and everyone else needs to stop saying the 360 slim is copying from the PS3 slim when Microsoft not only made it smaller but upgraded it compared to the original system by adding more ports and the built it wifi while addressing the red ring problem and loud fans. im pretty sure the PS3 slim didn't do any of that compared to the original.On another note the games one the 360 usually handle better and have bigger online community. I dont see the PSN having its own page on IGN. Im sorry that this was a bad game but i remember a PS3 exclusive game called Genji which was just horrible. and please dont get me started on some of the other horrible games on the PS3 that just never could come close to where Gears and Halo have. God of War is great and all but its a once play thru game. Thats not worth the 60 bucks.So yea im sorry that PS3 goes on the internet like my computer and plays blurays like my bluray player does. Im just glad that my 360 plays great games and has a awesome online to back it up cause thats what i bought it for. thats all it needs to do. And it does it spot on"
"@7, Here are two lists of retail exclusives rated 9.0 and higher on IGN: XBOT- Halo 3, Gears of War 2, Forza Motorsport 3, Dead or Alive 4, Halo 3: ODST. PS3- Metal Gear Solid 4: GotP, LittleBigPlanet, Resistance 2, Uncharted 2: AT, Killzone 2, Ratchet & Clank Future: ToD, Demon's Souls, God of War III, Infamous, Resistance: FoM, Uncharted: DF, Heavy Rain, Folklore, Ratchet & Clank Future: ACiT, Valkyria Chronicles, ModNation Racers. 5 exclusives for XBOTs and 16 for PS3. 6 for XBOTs if you count Alan Wake, since it hasn't released on PC yet, and 15 for PS3 if you discount Folklore, since Clements didn't know how to rate games when he reviewed it."
"Man the 360 exclusives this year have been pretty disappointing, I won't be dusting off Microsoft's console anytime soon"
"@1Wow your an idiot, Every 360 exclusive has been amazing. You have not even played this game yet so how would you know? You think IGN is the oracle of games? this is one guys opinion, And this game definitely deserves more then a 7.5, he neglects to mention that the formula from before was insanely amazing and made one of the best games ever one the 360. Crackdown 2 isnt perfect im sure, but it deserved more then a 7.5, and your comment about exclusives this year sucking really is insane. Mass Effect 2? Alan Wake? Those 2 alone have been incredible. And the biggest exclusive of the 360's lifespan is only 3 months away... Halo Reach? your a retard"
"@8"Wow your an idiot, Every 360 exclusive has been amazing. blah blah blah" Creepy fanboys like you make the rest of us Xbox owners look bad. He was right, and you're the idiot."
"@8 You tell the man not to disregard a game he hasn't played, and you go off and say that Halo: Reach will be "the 360's biggest exclusive"...when YOU haven't played the final product? You're a hypocrite. 2. Mass Effect 2 was not a 360 exclusive. It was also on the PC. Don't forget that. 3. Why so hostile? There is no need to call anybody a retard, or an idiot. SlipperyFellah thinks that the X360 has had a disappointing year in terms of exclusive titles, which (in MY OPINION) it has. That's why I haven't touched it since February. That is SlipperyFellah's opinion I know we are going by opinions here but theres no denying the xbox's reasoably dull year in regards to sales and exclusive titles. 5 You're an MS fanboy. Just sayin'
"@ everyone Too Human was amazing confused But yeah, that one guy who was like "Well, only 5 360 exclusives got above a 9 on IGN" is retarded and I will say the majority of 360 exclusives are, indeed, great. If anything, the PS3 has many many more non-worthwhile exclusives. God of War III (just keep GoW Collection and you'll feel like you never needed GoW3), Killzone 2, Resistance: FoM, Demon Souls, Heavenly Sword, Katamari Forever (as fun as it is, it's a complete rehash), and so on. If I had to name all the PS3 exclusives that, at least, "I" think are worth your money: Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack In Time Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Uncharted 2: Amoung Thieves Resistance 2 Heavy Rain Warhawk MGS4 inFamous ModNation Racers And 360: Gears of War Gears of War 2 Halo 3 Halo 3: ODST Saints Row Crackdown Mass Effect Mass Effect 2 Fable 2 Dead Rising Splinter Cell: Conviction Left 4 Dead 1 Left 4 Dead 2 (and I know for a fact there's more, my mind's just blank right now) Plus the arcade titles for 360 are vastly better than the PS3's and then you have the Indie Games. So yeah. I'd kindly appreciate no more 360 hate. Both the 360 and PS3 are great great consoles. Not to mention the Wii as well peace
"people who like crackbox are racist, poor, and the reason we have war over the world." Woh woh woh woh. For some reason I don't think he's kidding...
"While the 360 doesnt have as many high scores on it exclusives as the PS3 the 360 doest score higher on games they both have. With worse graphics so dont try to say the PS3 wins off exclusives, it cant even win with better graphics" Wah? Can you speak some English so I can read easierly?
"lmao, even my gameboy has better graphics than this game. mircosoft is old and not innovative anymore (losing to google and apple) I bet the reason why games like halo get good reviews is because they pay for the score. so people who likes microsoft are communists." try again, your trolling lacks finesse
"another failure fo microsoft, how much disappointment can 360 fan boys take? it's like a woman defending her abusive boyfriend "I deserved it, he's the best i can do" hahaha" Beating your wife is exactly like a video game getting a low score (yells to girlfriend) BITCH COME HERE!
So that ends another Tard Tuesday. I included fanboy chatter back and forth and a little of what I did last week. I'm still unsure which to do so I'm counting on you guy's so speak up and say what you like best. Also do you guys want Tard Tuesday to be longer or do you think this is enough? I know I can only read so many before I explode, but I'm willing to take one for the team. If you see any fanboyism send me a message on steam (zetacrossfire)
(also shout out to my homies on the dtoid steam group)
