Its my birthday and Ill die if I want to.

Well just got back from the game store last night and picked up Saw for 360 and Demon's Souls Premium. While not as hard as I imagined as people are whining about I am still dying alot. I cant really think of much to write in my blog today but decided I might as well throw one out there since I am having a lobster milkshake of a birthday. P.S. I remember from my birthday post last year a few people on dtoid also share my birthday so Happy Birthday to them as well. If anyone wants to play somethin on Xbox Live tonight send me an invite my gamertag is on my profile but in case you dont see it its Bigghurt.

Cheers and soon I will post my collection pics of all my games PREPARE TO BE AMAZED. Not really.   read

Why I loved the dreamcast or why I think people did. Or Part 2

Here is a top ten list of reasons why I think people can say they love the dreamcast and mean it(mostly my reasons though).

1.For me at least, the dreamcast was the first system all stores got behind selling. It was the system I could find games for nearly anywhere. Retailers were excited and it was really the first time I started trading games and things at places like gamestop to get games.

2.It had internet capabilites, if you wanted to play online it was either everquest on pc, or the dreamcast network. I remember leveling at least 6 characters to nearly max on Phantasy Star Online. I literally could not stop playing that game. I dont believe xbox live would exist in its form today if it werent for dreamcast network.

3.Most people were waiting for the promised naomi arcade ports to flood the system like sega told us they would, except they didnt unfortunately. I did love House of the Dead 2 though. I must have logged at least 180 plus hours into that game and got a 5 stars in every bonus mission available.

4. Most people loved the dreamcast because it was the first time sega built a system completely on its own merits. They didnt plan any strange expansions or any pieces that needed to be bought later they just made a hardware set and hoped for the best.(If you didnt own a Master system or a Genesis you wouldnt understand this reason)

5.The vmu is still the best memory card doohickey thingie invented for a system. I know people hoped for all the amazing things they said it would do. I did enjoy the virtual pet missions some games gave to it. Primarily Zombie revenge and the sonic adventures.

6. Most people I know enjoyed the online multiplayer you just couldnt get on a console anywhere else(double reason but who cares).

7. People still enjoyed Sonic in those days.

8. Most people I know loved it because they could mod it easily(even though I've always bought my games)

9. Because people will always love the potential of what could have been then what acutally was.

10. Most hardcore dreamcast lovers I know that speak and can read japanese had games to buy for this system up until a few years ago with all the shooters in japan being released.

@Yojimbo(in response to my last short post which apparently was not a big enough wall of text)

Where was I when it launched?
Outside the store waiting to buy my system and launch games

Like you sir I bought nearly every game I could afford when they came out and when I couldnt I traded games to get them.
I loved the dreamcast more than Sega could let me and when they stopped making games I even tried to order some from Japan but after the third time my order got lost in the mail I gave up hope from buying dreamcast games overseas. I loved the system and Ill be ashamed if I said I didnt. If Sega ever got the balls to release a new system id have that thing paid off months in advance before it launched and buy all its launch games.   read

Dear Yojimbo I love the dreamcast and I know many others did as well the enemy of the dreamcast was the sega wars. Part 1

Dear Yojimbo,

I loved the dreamcast, I owned many of the games for it and I am gearing up to buy about 200 games from my friend and nearly having a complete collection of dreamcast games. If you dont remember which most people dont, sega of japan and sega of america were feuding at the time of the dreamcast. Most games were simply not made available to sega of america for licensing due to piss poor management and battling ceo's. Sega was a mess and both companies didnt know how to handle properties for the dreamcast. Next time you call a group of fans liars you should know that if a company cant support its product then the fans can love it all they want but the money wont ever be enough. I'd write a bigger mountain of text but A. im too tired tonight and B. The trolls are back again as evidenced by most posts and replies ive been reading lately.


Stay tuned for part 2   read

Dear everyone worried about or not buying shadow complex read this.

I understand that most people on the planet dont read previews for games or play magazine for that matter but let me lay this out to people willing to read my post. Buying shadow complex will not further any antigay agendas, it wont help make orson scott card money, it wont ruin gay marriages or the rights of gays. Shadow complex's story was invented by chair and orson scott card heard about the story developing for the game and wrote a book that mirrors shadow complex's story. Then in Chairs infinite wisdom they decided to tie his name to the game in hopes of selling it better. So when you decide to buy or not buy shadow complex you are only hurting or helping a indie developer die or grow. I believe your only hurting the indie marketplace by not buying a game that deserves your attention. If you dont like Metroidvania games dont buy it. If you do like metroidvania games pick it up. Screw what you think about the games story novel and enjoy it for what it is a great xbl ps3 digital game. I think people are overthinking the situation and should just enjoy a great game. Help Chair with a purchase. FOR THE LAST TIME SHADOW COMPLEX HAS LITTLE TO NOTHING TO DO WITH ORSON SCOTT CARD READ SOMETHING BEFORE YOU ASSUME FACTS.


P.S. Hes rich if he wants to do something he will do it with or without your support of his books or comics or games.   read

Where the lobster milkshake is Electro Lemon Also DLC whiners shut it.

Dear Destructoid I know I lurk around here and read your posts and dont contribute much but thats for another topic and another time. It used to be when I log in 4 times a day I would at least see one post from Electro lemon in the c-blogs almost everyday. Most of it granted was complete nonsense but it was a tradition to see his stupid posts about fake trips, why he wanted to love his dreamcast even more and many rants about bein poor because he cant afford every game of the week. So I ask you where the frak is electro lemon I wanna read about you more often.

On to the real reason why I blogged today, If you dont like DLC dont fucking buy it. Seriously RE5 charged you something that was on the disc already($4.00 seriously, hours of multiplayer or a cheeseburger and fries or one pack of cigarettes, thats a tough choice), dont buy it. Namco lets you buy lvl ups, dont buy it. EA lets you pay to break there games. DONT FUCKIN buy it. You should be glad that the original idea of turning every game into a korean cash shop didnt happen. I remember when they did a mock up of xbl before it happened and they were like with forza motorsports we'll be able to sell things like premium rims and tires and every piece of car will be a microtransaction. Like .40 cents for rims and 1.00 for tires. Just be glad that the companies havent released the games that could potentially be set up like Special Forces and people would pay for it. (Special Forces or so I've been told is a free to play game that grossed over $6 million in micro-transactions). Imagine if they sold you half the game for $40 and then multiplayer and added characters were $20 for every game. Then you can start complainin but until then we probably shouldnt antagonize the dlc'ers into a worse situation than people think it is now.

Oh yeah one more thing giving residuals to voice actors is a very bad thing to suggest dtoid editors unless you want games to start retailing for much more than they already do.(more about that later)

End wall of text.

P.s. More posts today pending   read

Reintroduction, Plus Tokyo Beatdown DS looks sick

Ok I havent typed anything in a while so here goes. I live in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere, I play too many games, and I dont get out very much and i work alot more than anyone I know(because they are all lazy asses). I like beat em up games too much. I play too many rpgs and way too many mmorpgs.

While im talking about myself if any single women who play on xbox live regularly my xbox live tag is bigghurt(seriously though if anyone wants to play coop or chat reguarly on live add me). Onward with the reintroduction.

I'm 26 I went to Comic-con a couple times in a row but havent been in 2 years. Its pretty awesome if you get a chance you should go. I buy too many collector's editions and I spend too much money every year on video games. Everyone who's not completely retarded should give goozex a try. Its made for popular games and not rare games. If you wait it out you can get some rare stuff for cheap but you gotta wait forever. Gamestop loves me because until recently I pretty much gave them every game I owned for months. I watch too many movies, and I own some games but not enough. Thats enough about me for awhile.

Anyways about Tokyo Beatdown I got an email from my atlus newsletter about this game and it looks awesome as shit. Shootin things beatin people up and different characters to choose from. Also its slightly 3-d from what the video looks like.

Hope this link works

Free movie edition-Midnight Meat Train The Best movie you'll see free this year

So I have been obsessed with the movie Midnight Meat Train and seeing it since the beginning of this year when I was combing through the previews at quicktime. I waited patiently to watch the movie only to find out a few weeks before release that lionsgate was only going to show it in college town theatres. Then something happened like some big movies came out that week and lionsgate decided to can the movie all together. So earlier today I look to see when it is coming out on dvd so I can buy it and much to my surprise I find out that fearnet.com is showing it absolutely free on their website. Everyone and anyone who is a horror fan should see it because its about 10 times better than any horror movie I've seen it quite a few years. So take my word for it and board the train. :)   read

Its my birthday and I didnt get nothin(except the stuff I bought myself)plus movie reviews for the past weekend.

So its my birthday and I have no friends to get presents for me. No awesome girlfriend or dad like xmalachi and no talents. I decided to post for some reason but my last post I typed up just disappeared so whatever. If anyone is interested in playing warhammer with me or rock band 2 send a msg with the right gamertag or server and character name. Ill post again later to let people know what I bought myself on my birthday woohoo. Oh and just so this qualifies as a post and not a forum message here are my reviews of some movies


1. Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist.
Michael Cera is hilarious and usual. Not much in the way of plot but running around new york, self loathing, heartache and teen sex. Kat Dennings is kind of hot in a strange way and I watch her in pretty much anything(including house bunny). Music is mostly indie and the part with John Cho is kind of ok, here's pretty much a cameo actor so no surprise there. If I had to rate it would probably be a 7/10 pretty much everything you expect but not in a bad way.

2.Blindness.
See lots of people go blind. Check. See lots of people become depressed. Check. See what happens when people give in to the animal instincts inside. Check. Watch many people but pretty much only fat or obese people be naked for no apparent reason. Check. Have a not making any sense ending. Check. Overall I would give this movie about a 5.5/10 because its just not really good or bad and should have ended about 45 minutes before it actually did.

P.S. will post later with pics of birthday presents to myself.   read

Front Page Agony Or My Review Of So-called TEH EVIL ARMY OF TWO

Wow just wow. First I go to penny arcade to hear them rant about how evil army of two is then I come here. I have never heard such hypocritcal words come from gamers mouths in all my life. I dont suppose killing creatures in WOW hurts your morals or makes you wonder why they deserved to die. Try to think about the hobos problems when you put there skull through a tv in condemned 2. Maybe try to sit back for a minute before you headshot a terrorist in rainbow six vegas 2 this week to really think about if what there doing is really wrong. Or maybe wonder about all the people shooting at you in any of the numerous games you play when you kill them. But its ok in all those games because 90% of the time they dont joke about killing them or do fist pounds or air guitars. Here's my short review of the game. If you like all out action third person games where you get to shoot lots of people and do somewhat rambo like actions, then you will like this game. If you play this with other people you may like it a bit more. If you like 4 player online action that is somewhat different than gears of war or any other third person shooter then you may like the online aspect of this game.


My thoughts about some of the front page post are below:



"Choke someone to death, then play air guitar. Shoot a turban-wearing suicide bomber, then fist pound. This is the life of a private mercenary as presented by Army of Two, and it is supposed to be fun.

Army of Two never asks its players to give two shits about the enemies they are killing. The terrorists, depending on the level, all look the same: the Iraqis look like Iraqis, the Chinese look like Chinese, and the Americans look like Americans. They are, essentially, faceless bad guys; even in the last levels of the game where players break into their own private military firm on a mission to kill their boss, the players are never onced ask to consider the fact that they are literally blowing their way past dozens and dozens of completely ignorant security guards and soldiers who are totally unaware as to their boss's corruption. The bad guys exist to be killed, not to be thought about or sympathized with."


_Congradufuckinlations you just described what happens in every shooter game ever made, either in game or by people in real life playin the games. If you didnt enjoy takin out bad guys by the dozens u wont play video games. You dont have to feel for the characters its a game not reality there is no morality play involved._



"The fact that one of the mercs grows a conscience out of nowhere is irrelevant, considering that conscience manifests itself in the duo's decision to blow away the dozens of aforementioned ignorant security guards."


_Did you even pay attention to the story, these people were hired to kill you by dalton and clyde apparently someone doesnt follow the story when playing the game._


"As it stands, however, players can easily spend hours killing bad guys without a second thought, until the protagonists suddenly start making devil horns and playing air guitar after a particularly violent gunfight. For more socially-conscious gamers, moments like this make the wheels come to a screeching halt: this is not funny or cool. This is callous, and more than a little sick. The player is forced to reevaluate all the fun he was having before, given this new and disturbing attitude toward mass genocide."


_Because that never happens in other war games like rainbow six vegas, gears of war, or with the general population of ppl on xbox live with mics. All I hear is good job on takin out this person or that person in any game I play.

P.S. Sorry if this isnt cool like everyone elses posts but im not good at bbcode or html design sorry._   read

for the love of God why is everyone talking about Tomopop(and how do I become a part of it:])

So Ive heard many posters talking bout tomopop, and contrary to the post title all I know is its gonna be a toy/collectible site from the people of destructoid. When is it going to launch, how do I contribute, and do action figures(preferably the ones that actually can move) fit into the site. I was an avid collector of the newest he-man series and plan to post pics in my c-blog later on this week(when I find my digital camera). P.S. Blog posts about Burnout Paradise, No More Heroes, and more to come later today/this week.   read

why im the most unlucky 360 gamer around

well last week my 2nd xbox 360 went to the land of the red lights. Sent it back yesterday, hoping for some better luck I buy rock band(to play on my spare 360). After I get rock band home I figure out that the guitar is broken out of the box. It doesnt connect with my 360 and I've tried everything on the forums, plug unplug change batteries etc. What should I do, should I return to store, or send guitar in to EA. Whats your thoughts?   read
