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.

Steam rejected the DP refund. Meh, It's been a long time between when I bought and played it, don't care anymore, heh. Decided to play more MGS4 on PS3 and start replaying Rayman Origins on PC. Fun games that actually work.

Being an asshole, watching this Star Citizen debacle unfold and seeing Cloud Imperium's meltdown about the whole ordeal is incredibly entertaining. Even if the allegations ARE false, CI's official statement comes off as wonderfully bitter and petty.

Alright. Playing off of the Avatar question, why did you choose your username?

I tried playing Deadly Premonition on Steam from my backlog today and it's a GODAWFUL pc port. I bought it forever ago but I requested a refund. If anything I don't want it in my library....

So, I plan on using my GameStop Power-Up Rewards points (yes) to buy all the eventual P4DAN DLC. Even though the practices are very suspect. I am so not made of stone. Moreso blubber and Dr. Pepper.

Having a puppy and trying to play legend of grimrock 2 somewhere the puppy normally doesn't get to hang out is a futile effort.

Shafts of light emanated from Robo Panda Z's eyes, illuminating the intricately engraved obelisks looming impossibly above him. A whispered voice spoke from the obelisk. Do you pay too much for your Internet? Comcast. Like you have a choice.

I miss Kill la Kill - I think mostly because it was so damn entertaining to have a bunch of people drawling, "Nuuuuuuuuudiiiiiiiist Beeeeeeeeeeeaaaach" at each other.
