2008 has been one hell of a year for gamers. Gears of War 2, Fallout 3, Fable 2, GTAIV, MGS4. This seems to be the ultimate year.

Let's get into some of the catagories.


Best Visuals on a Console Only Title
There has been much talk this year about how consoles are being "pushed to the limit", and this year has really showed the DTOID community how to tighten up those graphics.
And the winner is...

Jumper Griffins Story

It was a close vote this year with Gears of War 2 coming in at 3rd place with 30 votes, Fallout 3 coming in 2nd place with 55 votes and Jumper Griffins Story claiming 1st place with over 9000 votes.

Best soundtrack
With the release of Rock Band 2 and Guitar Hero World Tour, this year has been a golden year for "Rocking out".

And the winner is



Highschool musical 3: Senior Year-DANCE!

And nobody else voted because there either too drunk or still trying to get a jet in World Tour mode.



And last but not least.



WEEDGANS 2008 GAME OF THE YEAR AWARD

This is the big one, folks. So many good games have been released this year, and it's mind boggling. But lets take a look at what has boggled us the most.

And the winner is


Turning Point: Fall of Liberty

Left 4 Dead came in at second place with 4 DTOID editor votes.

Pure speculation, but I'm pretty interested so far.

Short blog is short, sorry.

But hey, it's better than fucking music game news all day right?

So, I rented a copy of ET: Quake Wars. I was a pretty big fan of RTCW and Wolfenstien Enemy Territory, so it only seemed right that I at least give this PC port a try.

All I can say is, what a half assed PC port.

First off the graphics are very dated. The game itself does not look bad, but it has no style and it is all very dark. Oh and draw distance? Forget about it. And the explosions look like there from Duke Nukem 3D.

Controls...not bad, but not very accurate or responsive.

Sound, besides the voice commands there are probably only 35 diffrent sound effects in this game.

I dont really have high standards for most games, and this games not awful but its a very good example of how badly you can fuck up a PC port. And did I mention this game only supports up to 16 players? Yeah, lame.

Rent this game please. If anything, there are a shit load of achivement points if you just run through all the campaign mode on medium...but even so, its still barley worth the time.


6 firetrucks out of 10.








Alright Dtoid, so I'm back.

Everybody keeps ranting about GTA 4, yeah thats cool and all, but I already have the game. I dont need someone elses shitty complaints or jimpressions to take away from my time with the game.

So now that one of the biggest titles of the year is finally out, how about the next big mystery?





Alan Wake


Now this game was shown off about 2 years ago and it STILL looks pretty damn good, and if this game is still in development I can only imagine what it would look like now.


I really hope they announce some more about it at this years E3.

So how many of you look foward to this game, I always get hyped about the games that no one is really told anything about.








Yup, thats right, someone is running a live feed of GTA IV right now.

And its been confirmed that he is playing on the PS3.


Haha, this is just too crazy.








*SPOILERS ON WHAT SONGS ARE IN THE GAME*

















So, yesterday there was obviously a GIANT fucking leak of the game, and by giant I mean the whole thing was fucking ripped and torrented the day trucks dropped off the game.

What a dissapointment. We know all these people are going to be caught. Go over to youtube, you can't find a video of it *intro leak*. It will be up for at least 1o mins then taken down.

Looks like rockstar is pretty pissed about all this, but its too late.

Anyway, in wake of this event many, many more songs have been posted on wiki to be confirmed in the came.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto_IV_soundtrack

Pretty shocked at seeing pink floyd on there, anyone see the irony in playing such a violent band with one of the most layed back songs in history?


Anyway, can't wait for this game. See you guys on FNF on may 2nd.
