Fanboy Friday: Tard Head Edition

7:00 PM on 02.05.2010 // Aerox

It's always interesting when an older Japanese game finally makes it out West, as was the case with White Knight Chronicles this week. I remember hearing the game being hyped back when I bought my PS3, but I quickly forgot about it since the release date was so far off.

This week, it finally game out. How does a game made in 2008 rank today? Most reviews agreed it was pretty average, although a couple reviewers just flat out didn't like it (and a few thought it was just fantastic).

As expected, the fact that the game didn't get a 10 means gloating from 360 fanboys and incessant whining from the PS3 side.

Hit the jump.

Let's talk about some of the reviews. These, as you can probably figure out, are mostly pulled from the reviews that weren't so hot. I'm going to keep track of all the valuable lessons I've learned today from reading these.

Lesson #1: If you don't pepper your speech in random Japanese words, watch a bunch of anime, and/or like tentacle porn, your opinion on video games is invalid.

I really wonder how this "JRPG god" (as he humbly called himself in a recent podcast) hasn't been fired yet. His knowledge of JRPG's, and Japanese culture for that fact, is laughable at best...

Lesson #2: When reviewing a game, make sure every word longer than 3 letters links to the definition of it.

"It might be easy to dismiss White Knight Chronicles as an awful game. It's not." ... Then why the "Mediocre" rating?

Lesson #3: Every bad review is because of bias.

lol I'm not at all surprised by the score. the motto for years has been "360 GOOD! PS3 BAD!!!" But whatever

Lesson #4: All reviews should be done with the expectation that every aspect of the game, from the graphics engine to major gameplay systems will be fixed in the future with patches.

definitlely underrated this game. Sure there are a few issues with it now, but no one is saying it can't be fixed in a patch or two.

Lesson #5: Reviewers without day jobs have a wide variety of career options available if the whole video game thing doesn't work out.

you should search for a job more akin to your aptitudes.Butcher,for exampple. This game is way better that the likes of Avatar ,so just shut your assmouth.And you should have handled the review to someone that was less a hater.

Lesson #6:When commenting on a review, the most effective way to get your point across is to go off on a wild nonsensical tangent that appears to be a response to a comment. Make sure the "comment" you're responding to doesn't actually exist.

what halo r u play jayvee halo 2 wow yeah a 5 yr old game and most people that want to play ME 2 on their PC probably can't because of the specs but for 259.99 they could instead of 600 or more to upgrade their PC. oh yeah new splinter cell 360 exclusive, crackdown 2, Forza 3(best racing sim ever), fable 3, natal, ninety nine nights 3, yeah 360 FTW!!!

Lesson #7: If an exclusive on your platform of choice isn't reviewed well, just throw out some random insults towards other consoles to deflect attention.

360 sucks,RROD,disk read errors,disk scratching,E74.

Lesson #8: If an exclusive for a platform you don't own isn't reviewed well, make sure you rub it in.

hahaha! Another PS3 exclusive joke!! hahahaha! This is another game that I got into an argument about with a PS3 fanboy. "PS3 is gonna have way better exclusives than 360 in 2010". Well, so for PS3 is doing shitty job, MAG and White Knight Chronicles, lets hope on God of War 3! I think I made a great decisions with my 360!

Lesson #9: If someone is rubbing it in, start making outrageous comparisons. This is a good time for some serious namecalling to start.

what do you mean another ps3 exclusive that blows? xbox has gears of war, both which blow, halo which never changes (blows,) fable 2 is a rpg made for imbred retards (blows) - when you compare the two systems in exclusive titles the ps3 is kickin the snot out of xbox. metal gear, killzone, mag, uncharted, Valkryie Chronicles, little big planet to name a few - xbox has mass effect to draw customers over and right now that is it. i would know i own both and xbox is the over-all current let down.

Lesson #10: Every time you insert the world 'fail' into a sentence, the effectiveness of your argument exponentially increases.

lol i knew this game would be fail! another failgame for the failps3. enjoy your fail!!!! lmao. oh the joys of having a PS3 XDXDXD

Lesson #11: lol tard head

geez lip syncsing is horrible because of ENG DUB get that tard head.

Final (and most valuable) Lesson: It's all about eyeballs.

FF is the only JRPG I'll ever play from now on. From what I've seen of FF13 the English dub is good and the characters have NORMAL SIZED EYEBALLS! Eyeballs are key

I hope everyone got some educational value out of this. Take these lessons to heart and apply them to your everyday internet interactions, and soon YOU could be featured on an upcoming edition of FBF.

Fallout 4 wouldn't be Fallout with ridiculous glitches and shenanigans. Here are a few I've run into - [youtube][/youtube]

I've never earnestly went drinking before so it's cool to know I'm the slow, sleepy, impaired type.

Got to admit I didn't expect to find a mewtwo amiibo at my bookstore of all places...

My cousin found out I slept with his girlfriend and is pissed. Understandable. I am totally sick of the angry phone calls though. It reminds me so much of playing Call of Duty online. The screaming 11 year olds suck on there too.

Huh. Apparently even Japan has a Black Friday sale going on on PSN right now.

Yes, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I know that somebody has 2,625 more medallions than me. No, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I don't really care.

This fucking Bloodborne DLC, jesus. I'm on new game+, about level 90, and shit just tears my dick off. I don't know if I want to start another guy just to avoid NG+ and level him up, etc. sigh....

Wii U, top selling black friday item on Take that you anti-Wii U people.

I am pretty hyped for when I get a laptop because I'll be able to have a good enough connection to stream XbOne/soon PS4 games to it along with natively rendered Steam games. Hype!
Avoclefo avatarAvoclefo
Got a PS4 that came with SW Battlefront this week, and planning on picking up the FFX/X-2 remake. Hype is through the roof, especially for FFX. If I were to get one other game, what should it be?

Did a google maps search around my parents house for bars and there isn't one in like 25 miles, so I picked up an Intel compute stick and South Park: Stick of Truth on Steam. That's more or less the drunken screaming I'm in the mood for at about the cost.

Do you ever have that moment of clarity when talking to someone and suddenly realising: You're just a skull, and they're just a skull, with fucking eyeballs and a sac of skin being the only comparative difference between you visually? ..just me then?

After quitting for two days out of frustration, I beat Ludwig on my first try of the night. I'm on cloud fucking nine right now.

When I did my retail shift today, we were moving more Smash/Splat Wii U bundles and the Gears/Rare Replay/Ori XB1 bundles than Uncharted and Battlefront PS4s. I think Nintendo and MS have better value on their side this holiday. Sony got lazy.

I found this weird game called Samurai Heroes for 8 dollars today. Its not bad.

Got Deadpool, Arkham Asylum and BioShock 1 and 2 all for 30$. Not to bad for going Black Friday shopping late.

If you haven't played Tales from the Borderlands yet, GO BUY IT! By far the funniest game I have ever played, and the characters and narrative are incredibly well written. Very few memes unlike BL2 by the way.

Played all of Life is Strange today in one sitting. Bloody hell. You should all play it. Only game this year to make me cry. Bravo developers. Possibly the most valuable thing I've ever bought for £10.

Last night, got farther than ever in Wasteland 2. This is my third playthrough-once thru beta, once through the orig version, now on Directors cut. Worth the restart, and it speaks highly of the game that I like it enough to do this. DAMONTA HERE I COME!

GUYS HELP I KEEP BUYING MORE AMIIBO. Today it was Little Mac, since he went back up on Gamestop's website. I probably would have gotten Captain Falcon as well if I wasn't already running a little short on cash.
