Comments of the week: George Michael Warfare 3

12:00 PM on 07.24.2011 // Sean Daisy

Uncanny, isn't it? 

Comments of the Week is a feature where we scour the front page, community blogs and forums picking out comments. The ones that make you think, the ones that make you laugh and the ones that make you cry (but also laugh), and consolidate them into an entertaining package for the viewing pleasure of you, the Destructoid community. 

Comments will fall into three categories: 

TRUTH: Stimulates the wisdom gland! 

LOL: Agitates the mirth receptors! 

WUT? WARNING: May cause nausea, dizziness and vomiting. 

Well I guess it would be nice 
If I could show these comments 
I know not everybody 
Has got a comment like you. 

[Many thanks go to Handy for his invaluable contributions to this week's Comments of the Week.] 

From Comments of the week: P1 touch P1 to start edition 

From Criticizing the 3DS out of love, not hate 

Sean: These were the last reports of mattrodroid after he split into two evolutionary forms. These get an honorary truth entry, because it was something mattrodroid v1 would never have got. He will sort of be missed. 

From: REPORT: You're not owed any UMvC3 character! 

Handy: It is kind of sad that the week that Phoenix Wright and Frank West star in a Capcom fighter is met with such dismissal because of Capcom’s recent decisions. If they’re truly guilty of one thing this week it’s terrible timing. 

From Origin: Pay us to let you wait in line for a digital game 

Sean: I know a lot of people have said "but EA are doing this to force people to use Origin!" Well, yes, it is doing that, but holding games ransom is a risky move, especially considering how popular Steam is. 

Even Apple know better than to limit their products to the Apple store. EA should be getting their products on every service going, and make Origin a distribution platform worth getting on by offering a fantastic service, or offering new and exciting social features to compete with Steam. Their current strategy threatens to upset as many consumers as it will attract. 

From: Digital Distribution: Publishers are poisoning the well 

Handy: THIS 

From Street Fighter X Tekken is a trap with new characters 

Sean: Seems fitting that (s)he would have a cockney accent, considering their genitalia. 

From Kirby Wii to be called Kirby Returns to Dreamland 

Sean: This looks like a job for... Super Sperm? 

From Social sim shows you what teenage girls are really like 

Handy: If this game is really an accurate portrayal of teenage girls’ life then you’ll get an instant Game Over if you show an interest in teenage me. 

Sean: I think Handy is implying that he didn't have much romantic success with girls during his teenage years, but I'm just going to pretend he murdered them, because it implies that too. Spicy! 

From Who the hell are you?! Pictures thread 

Sean: You should have told the Easter Bunny to be more eggcepting. 

From Video Game Name For My Kid 

Sean: Seriously, go looking for a fridge magnet with that name on it. You won't find one. 

From Question a Dtoider 

Sean: My best pickup line? I get my rag and say "Smell this and tell me it doesn't smell just like chloroform." 

From The Question: You going to buy Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3? 

Sean: If you have not watched Memento yet. Stop whatever you are doing and go rent it out and watch it now. Even if you are just getting ready to get married, just explain to the vicar you haven't seen that movie yet. If they have any sense at all, they will understand. 

Handy: Rammstein can be, to heavily sugarcoat it, a Negative Nancy, but damn if this didn’t make me laugh. 

From REPORT: You're not 'owed' any UMvC3 character 

Sean: Where did you file them Isay Isay? Your KPIs are way down and Johnson on Floor 2 has been on my case about them since May. I'm up for disciplinary! 


Handy: To be honest this stuff started off in the WUT section, but eventually came back in on itself and became funny to me. I guess it’s up to you if you want to laugh with it or at it, then everybody’s happy! 

………‘cept these guys. 

From Downloadables: A hoard of the game 

Sean: Damn dragons, pushing their dragon agenda. It's all pro-firelighters this and anti-extinguishers that. Makes me sick. 

From legends 3 was nothing special guys come on guys 

Sean: In unrelated news, here are two men covered in pie. 

From Talia Al Ghul to appear in Batman: Arkham City 

Sean: Seriously, the pun wasn't that bad Sir Legendhead. Chill out. 

From: REPORT: You're not owed any UMvC3 character! 

Handy: I hereby decree that this gif must replace all “In B4 shitstorm, let me get mah popcorn.” comments from now on. 

From Digital Distribution: Publishers are poisoning the well 

Sean: Go make me a sandwich, EKGProd. 

From: Bethesda: Forced multiplayer a waste of time 

Handy: ‘kay……………glad to see you’re becoming more open-minded? 

From Epic Games: Bulletstorm 'didn't make money for us' 

Sean: Surprised they're still around? You do know they made quite a bit of money from the Gears of War series, and the hundreds of games that use their ubiquitous Unreal Engine. Does that help give you some clues to go on? 

From: SDCC Interview: Hiroyuki Kobayashi on Dragon's Dogma 

Handy: It takes a special kind of person to see the misspelling of a foreign name as a reason to question someone’s journalistic credibility and start demanding RESPECT *bangs fist on podium*. The same type of person who interrupts an interesting discussion to point out “It’s pronounced Hi-deo Kojima not Hide-o Koijma, GAWD”. 

Sean: Domo arigato, Mr DaveGuy. 

From Freddy Krueger confirmed for Mortal Kombat 

Sean: Well, I don't remember the time where Freddy dressed as Marilyn Monroe to seduce his victims... but it does remind me that I would play the hell out of a Looney Tunes fighting game. 

From SDCC: Cosplayer brings a real AR-15 rifle to Comic-con 

Sean: If only you had written "Ethan Thomas" rather than "Gordon", you'd have had a witty videogame-related comment there. 

From Wesley Snipes action game release date announced 

Sean: It might be worth checking to see if The Snipes is on Twitter, because there's a slim chance he may be up for some of that action. 

From: Freddy Krueger confirmed for Mortal Kombat 

Handy: I don’t want to be a dick but … 

Applying logic to Freddy Krueger is one thing in and of itself, but applying Freddy Krueger logic to a game, a game where all the characters murder each other horribly, but still somehow got to eight entries without drastically changing the cast each time. A game where character names are based on Prince song puns and developers names spelled backwards. A game where the sound designer pops up and sings “TOASTY” if you uppercut someone. A game where four armed lady-beasts wear Borat style g-strings and….look, I could be here all day, just roll with it is what I’m saying. 

Sean: For more information, read the stacks of Elm Street fan fiction in Conan's mom's basement. 

From I want to skullf*ck this Battlefield 3 multiplayer video 

Sean: Cynicism! If only we could run our homes off it. I could plug the internet in, and I'd never have to pay for electricity again. 

Hope you enjoyed the show, repeat performances are every Sunday at 12:30. Stay safe out there and don't look up if you see pigeon crap on your car.

Just finished watching The Phantom Menace. Yeah, Jar Jar is as bad as people say. Baby Vader is so cute and also kicks some serious ass. One of the best lightsaber battles of the series, if not the best one. It was pretty neat!
Roxas1359 avatarRoxas1359
Can't decide where I should upload my latest project. Either on my YouTube Channel or on Game Anyone. On the one hand YouTube gets more exposure, but Game Anyone is where some of my more popular walkthroughs are. The game is 3D Land if anyone is wondering

Thanksgiving dinner for days!

Anyone know if the Bethesda games on sale on Amazon for a certain amount of time, or through Monday?
TysonOfTime avatarTysonOfTime
In light of the fact that Xenoblade Chronicles X is fast approaching, I suggest we start planning out a Destructoid Squad! NNID is TysonOfTime. From what I've heard, it doesn't appear Squads are region locked (except for Japan), so everyone's welcome!

Listening to this on a Tall Oaks level of RE: Revelations 2's Raid Mode is entrancing, for some reason.

Need a reason to support Indivisible? Shantae is in it!. Back it or spread the word, every bit of help counts.

Sometimes I miss how hilariously janky Brawl was, and I still have a lot of fun playing it. Not sure if I could ever take it seriously as a competitive game, but I want to enter at least one Brawl tournament in the future. You know, if I can find one.

I love how on a slow news day I can always turn to Qposts for something else to read and think about. Keep up the mojo fellas!
Rad Party God avatarRad Party God
I finally caved in to those sweet deals, got Shantae and The Pirate's Curse, Downwell and Super House of Dead Ninjas :)

I hope that Prototype runs better on my dad's old laptop than it does on my AMD gaming rig. Some badly coded games run like ass on AMD cards.

Please spare me from issues in the process of publishing my blog! Especially since I modified CSS to unnecessarily pseudo-crop an image, and make it so some images float next to text, and make it look decent on mobile. I'm a frickin' nerd, love it.

The night brims with defiled scum, and is permeated by their rotten stench. Just think, now you're all set to hunt and kill to your heart's content! #FashionBorne [img][/img]

Two more days to get in on the unofficial Christmas Card! [Url][/URL]
Solar Pony Django avatarSolar Pony Django has got a mystery sale on T Shirts and Tank Tops atm, $5 for each. Only catch is they're random. But I've had some good luck, got a Captain Falcon one before, Zombies ate my Neighbors and a Persona 4 X Earthbound crossover.
OverlordZetta avatarOverlordZetta
I would really, really love if "publish now" could work without me having to post a blog multiple because the site is such a mess right now.
fitzen avatarfitzen
I got it all the way back in spring, but I still haven't finished Majoras Mask. Think I've done the first temple.. It's hard not knowing where to go. All those linear corridors and objective markers in games has made me dumb and impatient.
