Holy, shit! I know he isn't the nicest guy, but he managed to really piss someone off.
Some poor soul has posted a petition to actually kick Jim out of Destructoid. He/She hasn't had any success, though, as nobody has signed his stupid petition.
This is what was posted on the petition:
"Honestly, I am just sick of his sarcastic remarks all the time and biased reviews. Destructoid was way better when this moron wasn't ruining the fun for all of us. Just go to the website and see what an ass he is. He thinks he is very funny, but I know he is causing followers like me flee from Destructoid and go to Kotaku and Joystiq."
Also, the link for the petition cracked me up, just look at it:
I just wanna add that I don't want this to be considered a war enticing post. I don't care for fanboyism, and if I seem a bit ignorant on Xbox 360 games it's because I don't own one.
When I heard this rumor on Kotaku and IGN i started wondering what it meant in the console wars context. Does it make the PS3 gain some edge over the 360 considering its strong lineup for this year? Does it mean that the PS3 is now to be considered a not so shitty console cuz it's getting a game considered and GOTY by many experts. Does it even mean anything at all? Does the 360 really needed to keep it as an exlcusive or did the PS3 really need to snatch away from Microsoft?
I decided to make a list (with your help) of great games for both the PS3 and 360, both released and unrealesed (taking in account hyped and promising games). What for? To see who's winning the war and if Bioshock's alleged port to the PS3 means anything.
Bioshock (maybe coming to the PS3)
Gears of War
Gears of war 2
Mass effect 2 (also possible coming to the PS3)
Ninja Gaiden 2
Forza Motorsports 2
Dead of Alive 4
Call of Duty 2
Ace combat 6
Gran Turismo 5
Uncharted Drake's Fortune
Ratchet and Clank Future
Ninja Gaiden Sigma
Resistance Fall of man
Metal Gear Solid 4 (maybe coming to the 360 in the end)
Little big planet
Final Fantasy XIII
Final Fantasy vrs XIII
White Knight Story
Guitar Hero 3
Call of Duty 4
Unreal tournament 3
The Orange box
Rainbow six vegas 1 and 2
Devil May cry 4
Soul Calibur 4
Madden (better on the 360)
Both consoles have really strong titles as of now and great ones coming up. The PS3 is finally looking strong because of a nice lineup this year, but it's still to be determined whether the unreleased games I put in there will be superb or letdowns (heavenly sword, lair). I dare to say that if my perception is good and the PS3 exclusives I put in there end up being any good, by this year's end, we might have nearly as many AAA titles on the PS3 as on the 360. Now THEN would a real console war begin.
Do you remember the good ol' times when a Crichton novel would mean one full afternoon/night of reading an interesting thriller while being fed lots of scientific/technical facts on the way? Aren't you sad that ever since Timeline (released like 10 years ago) there hasn't been anythign remotely good written by him?
Crap, I mean, Prey was alright, but it wasn't that interesting in the end. And State of Fear and Next were so lazily written, where no real connection could be made with the characters and the bunch of piled up storylines served only as fillers.
He is the guy that made dinosaurs cool, got God's sake (along with Spielberg, I know...), why can't he be good anymore...
Do you think that if we gathered a shitload of signatures and send them to him asking him not to be a cashwhore with his next novel, he he'd actually write something interesting for a change?
Guitar Hero 3 (yeah, I know it's got no DLC and it's in Mono, but you can mod your Wii and play custom tracks)
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII
God of War Chains Of Olympus
and I also got my hands on a Dual Shock 3!
Now this is what I wanted to talk about this time. WTF is it with the limited amount of titles that support rumble. I mean, I don't mind Ninja Gaiden, Virtua Fighter, Madden 08 and the Darkness not supporting it because I honestly don't play them anymore, but Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty 4 should by no means lack this feature! Is there a special place to dowload a patch or something? Because I can't find it in either of the game's option menus...
