Destructoid vs. FrontierVille: The great chicken scandal

5:00 PM on 07.21.2010 // Jim Sterling

The fine editors of Destructoid are hard-hitting journalists dedicating to giving you, the hardcore gamer, all the facts fit to flaunt. This is why, for the past several days, we have been clobbering snakes, scaring bears, and feeding chickens in the name of science and JOURNALISM. That's right, folks ... Destructoid has been playing FrontierVille

On today's episode of Destructoid vs. FrontierVille, Nick Chester has a problem with me. Me and my chickens. Read on to find out what the bokking fuss is about!

From: Nick Chester
To: Jim Sterling, Dale North, Conrad Zimmerman
Subject: Why Does Jim Have So Many Fucking Chickens?

Is this necessary? Get a pen or something. Christ.

From: Jim Sterling
To: Nick Chester, Dale North, Conrad Zimmerman

Some of us are driven to achieve, Nick, and those chickens were part of an overall goal!

From: Conrad Zimmerman
To: Jim Sterling, Nick Chester, Dale North

Some of those are Geese. Need 9 of them for a quest line.

From: Jim Sterling
To: Conrad Zimmerman, Nick Chester, Dale North

Is this enough fucking chickens for you, Nick?

From: Nick Chester
To: Jim Sterling, Conrad Zimmerman, Dale North

I'm more than happy to help out, but I am not going to be coming by to feed that many chickens. That's just silly.

From: Jim Sterling
To: Nick Chester, Conrad Zimmerman, Dale North

I won't lie Nick. I've bought too many chickens and it's kind of your fault so I'm gonna need them fed.

From: Dale North
To: Jim Sterling, Dale North, Conrad Zimmerman

Fuck guys!!!! Slow down!! B

Some of you may be siding with me on this clearly thorny issue, and some of you may be siding on Nick. If you're compelled to agree with Nick that I do own too many chickens and that he shouldn't be responsible for them, I'd like you to consider this piece of damning evidence, discovered on my Facebook Profile earlier this week:

I ask you: What is Nick Chester, he who has a problem with chickens?

I tell you: He is Nick Chester, and he IS the problem with chickens!

One thing I've learned about the Japanese fighting game players: They are willing to play any fighter no matter how good or bad it is, and they don't shit on the game or the community behind it.

Watched the first ep of One Punch Man and I was not disappointed. It seems like they'll be adding their own stories into it because I don't remember that fight in the last 5 minutes in the manga. I'll have to reread it to make sure.

What the hell is Sega using in the printing of their PS3 game manuals? I wouldn't be surprised if some dumb kid stuck one in a plastic bag and started huffing the fumes to get high.

Been playing MGO obsessively, still can't find anyone in their right mind that uses the Hush Puppy. So of course I'm gonna be the dumb bastard that tries.

Why don't we have more games that use filtered 3D models to creat faux-pixel art? It's such a cool, smooth style, but you never see any games using it.

Oh lawd. Next Saturday, Gamestop will have three hour access to Tri-Force Heroes. Nintendo, really wish we could just get normal demos from you more often, please!

Star Wars Battlefront is pretty good. Except the beta is basically a demo with nothing in it so that upsets me. but it's still pretty good.

Just cleaning up the last of Gotham's Most Wanted before I finish Arkham Knight. Those Riddler trophies...much more fun than Arkham City but my word, stop it Rocksteady. Love the game though, outstanding. In my top 5 this year, fo sho.

Looks like my copy of Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash won't be here till Tuesday. What do I pay for Amazon Prime for again? I think I might have to stream me playing it.

I have just heard someone say Uncharted was a "role playing game."

The glitched walking animation people carrying crates in Novigrad do is hilarious.

Undecided what to do with my weekend now my fiancée is away. One part of me says I should work my ass off, another says I should go watch The Martian while the last part tells me to be a slob, play games and masturbate to Highschool DXD.. Such a hard lif

The 1.10 patch for The Witcher 3 is out. Downloading for PS4. Pretty excited to see the changes, especially since it said the damn swamps in Velen would finally see performance enhancements, along with like a million other areas. So good! Yes?

Just got confirmation that a feature I spent way too long writing is going up on Sunday. Not a bad way to start the weekend off, though I wish I had a slot on a weekday.

PB&J sandwiches. Saturday morning cartoons. A blanket. Ominous sounds coming from the next room. Blood seeping from the walls. A dark figure standing in the corner, staring, watching. Darkness, everywhere. Such darkness. This is childhood.
