It's not business as usual in this town.
[The comments were OUT OF CONTROL this week, so long blog is long. You have been warned.]

From There's a Puss In my Boot in my game
Speaking of mature, respectful discussion...oh wait, no I'm not! This week's troll roll is dedicated to DNA619. See if you can read through these comments and guess which format he is most fond of:
I knew the depressed, dimwitted 360 bithces like Jimmyx would be on here crying. I'm honestly not surprised that Gears Of Bore got knocked off the top of the charts, it sold 3 million in it's first week and it was utter crap. So, given the drop - off rate would probably be about 99% I can see why Gears has slid right down into the bargain bin already.
I like how some idiots are trying to pass this off as an insult against England. If this guy was TRULY serious about getting revenge, wouldn't he have gone to the kids high school with a rifle and shot everyone? Isn't that how they resolve this type of thing in America?
Why Americans are stupid:
PC gaming is the kiddy market, always has been, always will be. Why do you think the big franchises like Call Of Duty, Grand Theft Auto and Assassin's Creed sell 90% of their copies on the consoles?
I see a lot of whiny little 360 retards in here. I guess they must have gotten bored of Gears Of Bore 3 already.
@ Jimmyx - are you completely retarded? How is the PSN going down for maintenance going to convince gamers to buy multiplatform games for a POS console with overpriced online, terrible graphics, a wonky controller and buggy hardware???
In all seriousness though. Gears 3 has sold 3 million copies so that takes the total 360 exclusive game sales for 2011 to a whopping...3 million. LOL, pathetic. It's taken the last - gen 360 10 months to do something that the PS3 did in 3 months, no surprises there.
@ Jimmyx - a weak response after I just tore through your entire debate.
LOl, I see the unwashed masses of the PC nerd race are here once again desperately clinging to falsefied graph charts to try and convince themselves that they haven't just put together a $5000 paperweight.
@ TheNephilym - take a look at the past 3 GOTY winners. GTA: IV - came to PC long after consoles. Uncharted 2 - not on PC and never will be. Red Dead Redemption - coming to PC LONG after consoles. There's other huge games that come to PC long after the consoles as well, such as Assassin's Creed, L.A. Noire and Batman: Arkham City. Final Fantasy doesn't appear on the PC at all except for the MMO's. And that's not even counting a huge number of excluives such as God Of War, Demon's Souls, Heavy Rain, Gran Turismo, LittleBigPlanet, Infamous, Yakuza, etc.
I think it's apt to end the roll on "You just want to flame people. Get a life." hey physician; fancy having a go healing thyself?
I'm sure a lot of people are asking who would win in a fight out of jimmyx and DNA619; I've come to the conclusion that jimmyx and DNA619 are one schizophrenic man. The fight would go similarly to the scene near the end of Fight Club where Tyler Durden fights himself.
And now, some final words from BlackMeat, who got himself banned. Here was his tamer material [thanks to mrandydixon for holding on to this]:
There's a helicopter coming... three days from now, it's my ride. I have a feeling you'll show up again next week.
I'd like to pay Richard Hofmeier to talk to me about videogames. During last week's Sup Holmes (now on iTunes), he told me about so many great things, like the free online "game" Geoguessr, surrealist interactive text auteur...more
Here's today's formerly-live Destructoid Show, on which I wear a bad shirt again. Nintendo had one of their little Nintendo Direct press conference thingies this morning, and a bunch of news came out of that. They're also d...more
Welcome to another edition of Dtoid's Friday Night Fights! May is a notoriously slow month for videogame releases, which means it's the perfect month to dig out and dust off that old multiplayer game you haven't played in mon...more
