Comments of the Year: Part 1

12:00 PM on 12.25.2011 // Sean Daisy

 BONUS GAME: Think up a good caption for the header image and get a mention in COTY: Part 2! 


Comments of the Year is a feature where we scour the Comments of the Week archive looking for comments. The ones that make you think the fullest, the ones that make you laugh the heartiest and the ones that make you cry the hardest (but also laugh the most), and consolidate them into an entertaining package for the viewing pleasure of you, the Destructoid community. 

Comments will fall into three categories: 

TRUTH: Merry Christmas! 

LOL: The Special Brew Santa ads aren't quite as magical as the Coca-Cola ones.

WUT? Mommy, why is Santa nude and thirsty? 

[My thanks go to GoldenGamerXero, knutaf, Xzyliac, LawofThermalDynamics, Handy and VGFreak1225 for their contributions to COTWs in 2011.]



From Realistic Street Fighter 4 Art is Creepy and Awesome  
 
 



This comment is so astute, that it was like RichardBlaine reanimated Oscar Wilde and Winston Churchill, force fed them the last 20 years of the history of 3D videogames, and got them to co-write his comment.


 From : Indie rock band The National lend song to Portal 2 

  It must be great to be in a rock band like them. Just great.

From PS3 Hacker Geohot Rap Attacks Sony Fudepackers 

 

You may agree. You may disagree. You can't argue against the passion.


 

 From: The Chronicles of The Traveling Brournal 




The Bear King hassles strangers in the street and asks for their Post Count. No fake. 



From: Guilty Pleasures: Games You Like that Everyone Else Hates 




I have to say I liked it too. I played it on the GameCube, so there's a double-whammy of underrated for you. 


From Nintendogs blamed for vicious dog attack 
From the article... 
Megan Walker turned on her DS to play Nintendogs, and when the virtual dog barked, her friend's bull-mastiff responded to the sound by attacking her. 
 
 
 

That's a bit like the time I played Portal, and my dog didn't get any cake. 


From: I Am Alive now a PSN/XBLA title, out this year 
 

Eating penises and committing suicide? Surely it's the only thing those Jackass boys have yet to do...

From King of Fighters XIII patch still coming, new details 




Erm, bit of a fighting series mix up there...nah. Never mind. 

From Killzone 3 goes gold, ready for February 22 
 

Remember, your mom has been shipped in limited numbers, so be sure to pre-order early to avoid disappointment.

  From: C-blog recaps 
 
 
 
Come on guys, this is a videogames website! Let's get serious here.

 
From: No Clip: Fallout New Vegas 

 
 
 
At first it was funny, but you've got to admit it also looks cool. Like You're reading an essay and have lots of space to write corrections.

 
From: Realm of empires 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
What mattrodroid said? No. Not what mattrdroid said.


 
From: Daily Trivia 1, 2, and 3 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 
You had me at The Enemies: Europeans.

 
From: Hey Lenigod 
From: Lenigod

At first I was being a dick, and didn't think nothing of it... 
 

I felt like I was on top of the world... 
 

I thought I was invincible and no one could get in my way... 
 

But people began to notice me more, and not take kindly to me in general... 
 

But that was a long time ago, and things have changed, I know what i've done has been some what... 
 

But now, I share my food with the less fortunate... 
 

And am always ready to 'fap' any blog 
 

But don't forget about a thing called karma 
 

 

This seems like one big in-joke, but it got settled like gentlemen by Handy:

 


From Skyward Sword 'patch' is an entire fricken Wii Channel




Oh mighty Cthulhu and his tentacles of merciless fury!



From: Survey: Gears of War 3 Most Anticipated Game of 2011 

 
 

 

 


 

This is what trolls looked like in 2011.

Ah well. Maybe 2012 will be better for them, eh?


From Microsoft ran out of XBox 360s this holiday season 
 


Remember kids; don't do what Davydock did. 

What did Davydock do? He drank paint kids. Don't drink paint.




"The Bear King's Knighthood of the year was never up for debate. In the year 2011, Sir Zombie Platypus (NO PLEASE <3) gave us all the magnificent Title Shots thread." Aurain (aka The Bear King) 

I'm off to roast my chestnuts on an open fire. See you next week (and next year) for Part 2 on New Year's Day.

Oh neat, Hollow Knight got through the Colosseum of Fools stretch goal while no one was looking. Shame they couldn't get to three characters but the game still looks awesome.

S Rank is so satisfying. Too bad I rarely earn it!

My MGSV: The Phantom Pain playthrough has quickly devolved into a journey to fill out Big Boss' 80's synth pop collection. And I couldn't be happier.
Dinosir avatarDinosir
You know what I love? Game tgat force you to connect to their servers even though you only want to play single player. Then the servers are down an the game tries for like 5 minutes, not even giving you a way to cancel the process, you just have to wait

In today's Spelunky daily challenge, I was nibbled by a bat that pushed me into a Tiki trap that landed me dead on Kali's alter. Kali was pleased with the bat's sacrifice.

The ending of "Return to Crookback Bog" in TW3 I got was so depressing. Wow. I think I need a break...
Shinta avatarShinta
I'm sitting here play Metal Gear V, absolutely loving it. But in the back of my mind ... all I can think about is Mario Maker. I'm really excited for that game!
Patrick Hancock avatarPatrick Hancock
Sold a digital item on Steam, that came with a physical item, for more than the cost of the physical item. This is the second time I've done this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
GoofierBrute avatarGoofierBrute
Everyone right now is playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. And here I am, waiting for Super Mario Maker to come out. And also Star Fox Zero.

Patrick Hancock hates babies. Rick and Morty.... I wish I could view thee second season. I need to play MGSV. I spray farted earlier.
IDrawOnTape avatarIDrawOnTape
my wife and i got into Rick and Morty the same time we got into Gravity Falls. Man, some good cartoons out right now.
El Dango avatarEl Dango
Rick and Morty is like reverse Archer. Instead of everyone being insanely quick-witted, everyone stutters, pauses and repeats themselves a lot.

Drew a preeeeeeety sweet thing for the August edition of Cblog Recaps. Keep an eye out for it!

No spoilers or anything, but the MGS V troll is amazing. I went from concerned to laughter in a matter of minutes.
VeryImportantQuestion avatarVeryImportantQuestion
Not saying that the "augment your pre-order" announcement caused me to fall ill, but the timing seems like too much of a coincidence.
