Comments of the Year: Part 2

12:00 PM on 01.01.2012 // Sean Daisy

Hope you got what you wanted for Christmas!

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: Happy New Year!

LOL: Crappy Ewe Year!

WUT? Eating sheep poop, going "Mmm, sweet candy."

[My thanks go to GoldenGamerXeroknutafXzyliacLawofThermalDynamicsHandy and VGFreak1225 for their contributions to COTWs in 2011.]


From Comments of the Year: Part 1

Congratulations to The Guy for winning last week's caption competition, though I must insist that any resemblance to an exposed testicle in the picture is purely a trick of the shade on the inner thigh...honest!

From How to donate to the Jonathan Holmes burglary fund 

This community; you can't help but be impressed by it.

From: CNN Gets Gamer Who Grew Up on Halo to Review the 3DS 

The natural thought process of anyone who saw the video. 

LawofThermalDynamics: Probably what actually happened over at CNN HQ. Here at Commentoid Corp. We promise that we will never betray our customers over hookers and blow.

Sean: I will wait until I am offered hookers and blow before I pass judgement.


From Anonymouse - A Re-Introduction 


Excitement! Tension! Etc!

From Technical Difficulties: A true opponent stands before me 

Occams illustrates one of the hidden dangers of buying preowned. 

From Review: WWE All Stars, Tony Schiavone Edition 

Hmm, so the wrestlers would have to have their picnic in the park...what would that look like? 

From: E3: Insomniac to unveil multiplatform game on Monday 

Well, I don't know about you, but that's why I only play games I make and don't release. That way, I know I'm the only one enjoying the game. Booya!

 From: Let’s Talk Turkey 

It all started with this innocent picture 


Then, something beautiful happened. 






All well and good, until it went to Knutaf’s head 

I was tempted to include a Photoshop of my own but, you know; I'm lazy.

From: Cosplay calendar to aid Japanese relief efforts. 

I'd probably, you know, keep my eye out for that pink star, line up the old chap and pop it in. Everyone.

I'd ask first though. I'm a gentleman like that.

From Duke Nukem web game makes women get naked 
FTA:In conclusion, this game is dumb and not very sexy, not least of all because the women really don't look like they're enjoying themselves very much. Where's the fun in that? 

Remember Andy; If she wakes up just say you were sleep-sexing. It got me out of quite a few sticky situations, that excuse.

FromThe Bar 

That's racist...?

From The Bar 

Don't worry Changston, you're actually right on time. 

From Dead Space 3 accidentally confirmed? 


It wasn't all fun and games though: 

From Full COG armor? Also, transgender Link pics. Also also, Spider-Man pics. 


Yep, this is the forums alright. 

From ESRB: L.A. Noire has blood spurts, pubic hair, racism 


White man's biggest treat is balsamic vinegar, surely?

From Review: SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs 

That's not losing his mind. Losing his mind would be if Jim wrote the review in fecal matter and scanned it in. Or if, instead of writing the game review, he just spent the whole blog talking about potato chips, before giving the game "Paprika out of 10".

From Gorge on these lovely Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim shots! 

Not only did I have to re-read this comment three times to understand it, but the guy's finger on the screenshot doesn't look like Stretch Armstrong's arm at all! In fact, it looks like a dick with a kink in it. Isn't that right Dr Freud? 

Ja, dat is unqveschunably ein dick mit a kink in it. 

From: Nintendo posts huge loss in first quarter 

Is Stealth being mis represented? Don't ask me; the answer lies within the salad.

From: E3: First impressions of Prototype 2 

Stop Complaening!

From Google+ 

You can't argue like that on Twitter! #progress 

I'm off to eat some awful offal lawfully. We're back to Comments of the plain old Week next week. See you then.

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.
LinkSlayer64 avatarLinkSlayer64
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.
RadicalYoseph avatarRadicalYoseph
A weekend open forum posted every Friday night would be really cool, at least until we get real forums again.
Parismio avatarParismio
Went snowboarding for the first time in years. Crashed a lot, many times into trees. All that training in FF7 didnt do squat!
Amna Umen avatarAmna Umen
If I were to get Age of Empires II HD to play with you all, do you all have the DLC?
Pixie The Fairy avatarPixie The Fairy
I am relieved to know Creed is a Rocky spin-off and not a feature-length documentary about the band.
Steven Hansen avatarSteven Hansen
the worst thing about that jesssica jones program is i keep getting "basketball jones" stuck in my head
CoilWhine avatarCoilWhine
Been playing Gears of War 3's campaign on Xbox One. Looks great on there, and Sam's voice actor is Chloe's voice actor in Uncharted 2/3. Hell yeah!
Archelon avatarArchelon
Community Question: With all the controversy surrounding review scores, what do you personally consider a "bad" score versus a "good" score? Is there a game in particular that was panned by critics that you nevertheless enjoyed? Or vice versa?
TheVeganGamer avatarTheVeganGamer
Finally got around to playing Diablo 3 with some friends, holy smokes! That game is rad!
SpielerDad avatarSpielerDad
Public service announcement: Marry an orphan. It makes the holidays so much easier when you don't have to deal with pain in the ass in-laws.
Nekrosys avatarNekrosys
So... how long is it until we get the inevitable Colonial Marines or Ride to Hell: Retribution PS4/Xbox One re-releases?

Screw Bloodborne. I finally managed to overcome not tearing up while listening to the entirety of Never More. Git gud! [youtube][/youtube]
