Why God, why.



I don't even really know why Hardcore is so tempting, it just is, and I accept that and bow to the will of unknown forces.

I don't even remember how it got to this point, but Hardcore is the only way I'll play Diablo2 anymore. I guess the thrill of the danger is where it's at for me, but I don't know any other game where I am down for such ridiculousness.

All that careful adventuring gone in the blink of an eye, I've never seen my health bar go down so fast.

Well, I'm off to weep.. level 60 paladin down the drain. Fuck you Lord De Seis, fuck you. Lord knows I'll be back on the horse eventually...

Poor Nintendo.

Looks like they didn't take any extra precautions with their newly released WiiWare entity.

Titles are already showing up in the usual shady places, and installable via old exploits.

Do you guys think Nintendo is even trying anymore? Or have they realized it's a lost cause?

Oh and I realize blog brings attention to the fact, it's not really my intention to spread the word to cause any damage against Nintendo, but, I figure it would be out and about anyways.   read

GTA4 + MP // 2008?

Oh hey Dtoid, I'm back for another post after having to go into hiding from hating Bioshock (I still hate it).

Anyways, can you guys do me a favor and check the date on your computer? I could have sworn we now lived in the year 2008, I could be wrong, but that's the impression I was under.

Hell, I'll go ahead and check the date too, just to be sure one last time.


Ok, looks like we're in the year 2008. Games have come a long way, ideas have risen and fallen, franchises born and killed, game modes praised and trashed. It should be VERY difficult for major game companies to make terrible mistakes in this day and age (and year of 2008).

Which brings us to this...




Are you fucking kidding me? An auto-aim feature in a Ranked competitive online game as big as this? Rockstar, what the fuck are you thinking? How can you make such a terrible decision? To top it all off, when you spawn you're invincible for some amount of seconds. Basically what a deathmatch turns into is:

Spawn invincible -> Hold Auto-Aim button -> Whip around and lock onto random poor guy near you that existed too long and no longer has invincibility -> Pull trigger and get a kill -> Get killed by invincible guy that just spawned after you -> Return to step one.

As fun as that sounds, you might as well be playing against this guy:


I can understand this option being in the game at all, but in a Ranked scenario? No excuse for a terrible decision like that. Not in 2008. Let's check the date again.



Yep, still 2008. Epic fail Rockstar.

Now I know some of you are just itching and burning (hopefully not in your private regions) to hit a reply telling me to quit bitching and crying. So let's try to avoid those replies and settle this peacefully.

Possible fixes:
- Permanently disable auto-aim in ranked matches, leave the option in player matches for the whiny bitches who never learned how to shoot properly and can now get an ego boost from making a kill.

- Enable a filter mode for Ranked matches, where a player can choose only to join matches with auto-aim off.

- Punch Rockstar employees in the throat and pray they get the message.

I mean, it's not a hard concept here. How retarded do you have to be to set something like this. I can see it in Player matches, but Ranked matches, it just goes beyond me. And I'm not even one of those guys that is remotely competitive or in it for ePenis bragging rights to show off my record, I just think the game in its current form with all this auto-aim is one of the worst online experiences I've ever had, and I don't want this shit in my Grand Theft Autos, but as it stands, there's nowhere I can go to avoid it, only endlessly re-join games until I get a host who isn't a bitch and turns it off.

In case you guys still hate me, and feel like you've wasted your 5 minutes reading this, or if you are still burning to yell at me, here's Christina Milian just in case.

ps. - For the ladies of Dtoid, I don't know what a hot guy looks like, sorry. Otherwise I'd post one for you. So I guess the ladies are free to hate me.

pps. - I fail at blogs and don't know why Dtoid decides to do this "Uploaded & saved autolame.jpg; scaled to 100x; scaled to 550x;" upon uploading images. So, sorry for obnoxious images being of obnoxious sizes.   read

So I guess Zeke went to sleep and I have nothing better to do, so I shall continue his fine work for a few hours.

So far we have some flippin' sweet Falco action goin' on.

DUAL WIELD MUTHA'FUCKKAAZZZ









This also indicates that put in at least a little effort to de-clone some characters.

EDIT: I have passed on my updating duties to another dedicated Brawler. Go here instead. ;)   read

What I learned from FNF.

- Jewbagels are the opposite of jivedoughnuts.
- Scottish kids are awesome.
- Oh yes, thanks ShadowXOR, I also learned anal is better than shipment.

Anyways, my first FNF sure was a blast, thanks dtoiders.
As always, [TOID] represent!

And I'll see you all next Friday.

Also, cocks.

PS. For those who were there, we knew these c-blogs were comin'. ;)   read

Rock Band street date broken, I weep inside.

I now blame my parents for not having lived in New York so I could be born there and still live
there so on this day, I might get Rock Band 6 days early.

Also a plague on whoever this pic is, a plague on all his houses:

The PSTriple cometh.

Hello again fellow gamers, or shall I say my family... yes, yes, we are all one big family here, a family that does not suck.

It would appear to be a safe assumption that my pstriple will be arriving at my house this day, and while my initial plan was to just leave it in the box and shove it under my bed until I discovered some use for it, I might be convinced to do something with it when it arrives.

That is where you come in, oh family of mine. What are some amazing things that I should be indulging in (pstriple related mind you, I'll thank you to put your dirty minds at rest for now) when the shiny new console arrives?

It is my current understanding that there is not a damn thing worth doing on the pstriple yet, is that accurate? I challenge the Sony/pstriple army to prove me otherwise.

Why, if all this negativity, did I bother to even buy one you ask? Hah! Twas' this very site that convinced me to get one with that silly $150 discount method.

So, for the short version of this post, finish this story:

It's BioShocking.

Ok so.. let's get to the point.

BioShock 360 demo. Ok, go change your pants, I'll wait.

...

...

Welcome back.

Now I'm sorry to disappoint you, but you just ruined your good pants for nothing.

The BioShock demo is not all that amazing! /gasp

Let me get my FPS check list out here....

- Standard zombie-oriented enemies with [insert blunt object] for weapons? Check.
- Creepy little girls? Check.
- Ruined civilization that you are just now joining that apparently had been mighty and full of history at one point and it's your job to discover the past? Check.
- Physics oriented super powers? Check.

I'm sorry but everything about the game demo felt completely standard, and I kept checking to see if my socks were being blown off, but they remained loyally on my feet throughout the entire experience.

I will, however, join the legions of gamers whose jaws remain on the floor after catching a glimpse of how the game looks. It does look good. Lemme check my socks... Alright they blew off just thinking about the graphics.

Hopefully when the full game is released, the completely standard elements will be outshone by some marvelous tricks up BioShock's sleeves that were carefully excluded from the demo. Until them, color me unimpressed.   read
