Nerdcore Rhymes Dropped - I Deliver My Sermon and Divinity Ensues

No, not the tits variety. The musical kind, real Nerdcore.



MC Frontalot's latest album, Final Boss, was released on November 4th. I got it in the mail today, the 6th, and I am pleased. I already have a digital version of the album, but the album itself is awesome in physical form. I can't decide which is the best song on the album, Canadia, Tongue-Clucking Grammarian, or Scare Goat. They're all good in their own ways.

Those who played On The Rain Slick Precipice of Darkness: Episode 1, may remember a song from the end of the game called Final Boss. Frontalot is responsible for the rhymes therein, for those who were unaware.

For those interested possibly, http://frontalot.com/index.php/ is Front's site. I also highly recommend everyone listen to Pr0n Song, which is obviously kinda NSFW (same thing with the lyrics) http://frontalot.com/index.php/?page=lyrics&lyricid=26   read

Kingdom of Loathing Players!

This post concerns you, fo'srs. If you didn't know, there is a Destructoid clan in the Kingdom.I'm making this post for two reasons. The first is to make everyone aware OF the clan.

However, it's also to inform everyone in the clan or wishes to join it that the former clan leader, Eschatos, has been inactive. Why does that matter? Since I was the next highest ranked in the clan, the leadership has fallen on to me. Thus, I want to promote the clan and get it well known so we can be a respected clan over in that community.

If you HAVEN'T heard of Kingdom of Loathing, I highly suggest you check it out and play for a day or two. It's totally free, and all browser based. You can pay to get some items, or you can save up in game currency and buy them FROM the game.

So, tl;dr version. Come join the Dtoid clan, I'm the new clan leader, and play you some KoL.   read

Turning Point Gaming Rig? Not mine you say?

Basic looking shiny black case with piracy sticker from the Jinx.



I have an ASUS Motherboard, MSI Vidjacard, and a Pentium 4, which are what the other stickers up front are for. NOW THE INSIDES!





It looks like ass and a mess, I know D:. I don't have twist ties to re-tie everything, and I to cut some loose to install my third HDD (visible at the bottom right of pic 3 of the post). Third pic shows my fans, including my sexy new 80cm ASUS fan. ALSO! These pictures were taken while my computer was running. I <3 my camera.




Last two pictures show my desktop and setup, with my now 3 year old mouse and keyboard...and what the rest of my desk looks like for the most part.

AND FINALLY A FOOD BRIBERY TYPE PICTURE. You know you want some.

I has a computer flavor (semi-VGR) NOW WITH NVGR VIDEO

So, the FNF and TFTuesday guys already know about this, but not everyone, so I'll start from the beginning.

My CPU fan has been slowly dying over this past month. In that time I reinstalled Windows (backing up all my Valve stuff to my giant F: drive so I wouldn't have to redownload.) All this has been keeping me from playing TF2, which sucks hardcore.

That all changed Monday. A friend bought me a new fan as a birthday present. It finally showed up today in the mail, and it's awesome. A sexy sleek 80cm Asus fan to replace my mostly dead standard Pentium fan. It was a bitch and a half to get it attached, but it's well worth it. 100-120F running temp (including during gaming) compared to nearly double that.

I am pleased, and TF2 action will recommence soon. I might not make FNF tomorrow, due to the boyfriend visiting over the weekend. But either way...I'M BACK BITCHES.


What is a Dickable Afternoon?

PK Bawwwwwwwright (Epic Earthbound fanart)


by FiztheAncient on DA
http://fiztheancient.deviantart.com/art/Commission-PK-Bawright-77054856

I just finally finished Earthbound last night, and was inspired to get art done. So, I asked Fiz and she said "lol k"

Anyways, my thoughs on the game to actually give this post some content. It's beautifully made, as has been said so many times. The epic story, espcially covered by the coffee breaks. The quirky characters (Mr. Saturns, Mr. Carpainter, the enemies..), the locations (Lumine Hall especially. That was my favorite Sanctuary I think), and just the whole way it was put together and paced. It went by at just the right speed I think.

And of course, the huge rivalry between Ness and Pokey drew me in so much. I can't wait to see Mother 3 translated, so I can see how the story continues. All I know is that I really wanna beat Pokey around some..because he is, as Riley Freeman once put it, a "bitch nigga."

That final fight gave me shivers. I'm glad I never actually finished it as a kid. Gigyas was as scary as I'd been told he was..but I wasn't expecting the change in appearance at the last bit of the fight. Not to mention the music. Oh the music of the game! I'm so glad I have the soundtrack, and Bound Together.

So, yeah. I need to see if I can pick up an actual physical copy some day, to enshrine and worship and never actually play. That would be a valued treasure if I could ever actually get it.   read

Delicious copypasta (feel free to skip)

Don't say another Goddamn word. Up until now, I've been polite. If you say anything else - word one - I will kill myself. And when my tainted spirit finds it's destination, I will topple the master of that dark place. From my black throne, I will lash together a machine of bone and blood, and fueled by my hatred for you this fear engine will bore a hole between this world and that one. When it begins, you will hear the sound of children screaming - as though from a great distance. A smoking orb of nothing will will grow above your bed, and from it will emerge a thousand starving crows. As I slip through the widening maw in my new form, you will catch only a glimpse of my radience before you are incinerated. Then, as tears of bubbling pitch stream down my face, my dark work will begin. I will open one of my six mouths, and I will sing the song that ends the Earth.   read

Luca's Short Reviews - Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games DS

I'll be forthright. This is a fun little game. It makes use of the DS functionality quite well (Most games are stylus only, some use both stylus and buttons, and some are button only.)

You can play as a bunch of Mario & Sonic characters, and they all have their strengths and weaknesses. I've been using Tails mainly because he's got decent speed, good stamina, and he's got great 'Skill', which I'm not quite sure what that means.

There's also a wide variety of events in the game. I've gotten good at running & swimming, and most field sports outside of the Triple Jump, which I can't make work for some reason. That's my only gripe, that some of the games don't explain the rules very well, namely the Triple Jump. Also, Ping Pong and Shooting are kind of hard to perfect.

I rate it... a 3/5.
edit - changed score. It's worth a rental, but not to buy. Thanks everyone for pointing out my miscalculation :V.   read

I Wanna Be The Guy

So we all know about that evil little Japanese Mario-like game by now, yes? Well guess what? There's a game that's even more of a bitch. And that game's name is... I Wanna Be The Guy.

http://kayin.pyoko.org/iwbtg/index.php

It's epic most definitely, but also TOTALLY unfair in how it kills you. Plus it has actual bosses that were a bitch and a half in their own time. I've only made it as far as the first boss (MIKE. FUCKING. TYSON.) and that was with the help of a guide almost the whole way through.

IWBTG is a twisted cruel game, and you'll hate it so much, yet keep coming back for more. It tracks your deaths, but it's so much easier to die randomly than it is in Pyoron. Hell, I only died in that about 100 times...but I'm over 100 deaths in IWBTG, and nowhere near the end. The screenshots on the site? Have never seen them in game.

So, yeah. Download the game, tear your hair out, and curse my name for the years to come :D.

PS - I suggest playing on MEDIUM (as there's no easy difficulty) difficulty. The added save points are really helpful.

PPS - This came AFTER Pyoron. To quote the FAQ...
Q: Why is this game so fucking hard?

A: A whim, really. I played a 2chan flash game that was stupid hard and thought "Hm, I can do better". I needed a practice project. It just happened to grow into a big game.   read

R4DS, and some TF2

I know this may be a forum thing...but fuck that. I finally got around to buying one, since I read about Nintendo and it's crackdown on things like the R4. Any suggestions on utilities or 'backup' sites for NDS files? I have ScummVM ready to install. I just need to get some files for it...

And aside from that. I'm continuing to improve at TF2. I've lost interest in sniping, and I rarely run around as a Scout. Now I just do Pyro, Soldier, Medic, and occasionally Engineer, Demo, or Heavy depending on situations. Much props to Kor, Caffeine, Esch, and the rest of Dtoid for it's continued awesomeness and assistance.   read

DToid Garry's Mod?

Sup new journal creation layout?

Anyways, anyone here wanna get in some Garry's Mod action? Or at least, anyone willing to teach me how to make the various tools work? I know how some work, but not all...namely the constraints. I wanna build a robit and such.

I leave with some pictures from tonight. Behold my bucket car, and Wheel O' Eli Love.
