Matt Hazard will lead to our 2012 demise and other facts

You really ought to commend the folks at Maverick PR (and Vicious Cycle Software) for their work on Matt Hazard. They've done a tremendous job of creating a back-story for the videogame character who's got a fictional past, both in and outside of the games.

If you haven't come to grips with the fact that game characters have their own Facebook accounts, I honestly don't blame you. But you know what? It makes sense for Matt Hazard to be involved with social networking.

His page has hit the 1,000 follower mark, which is cause for celebration, apparently. Basically, it's an excuse for us to get more Matt Hazard fiction. Don't have a Facebook account? That makes two of us. Thankfully, we have the full "fun facts" located past the break.

Go take a look; they are pretty amusing.

Matt Hazard’s Fun Facts #5:  What Equals 1,000?

Great Milestones in Hazard’s Career That Involve the Number 1,000

  • Matt Hazard has knocked virtual, cowboy, commando, rubber, space marine , pirate, racing and jack boots with more than 1,000 virtual pixelated (8-bit, 16-bit, 32-bit and beyond) babes over the course of his career.  A feat unlikely to be surpassed even by the likes of that horny dwarf in that new RPG from those D&D dudes in Canada.
  • Ancient Mayans have prophesized that on December 12, 2012, 1,000 people will play Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond simultaneously, thus unleashing an intense wave of kickassitude that could crack the earth itself in two.
  • Hazard once appeared in a little-known first person shooter called Corona, a cancelled next-gen launch title.  In the game, Matt Hazard plays through the same level more than 1,000 individual times, as he is forced to backtrack repeatedly through the space in separate missions.  While the game was never shipped, the design was noteworthy and was later copied by other companies.  This became known as “Bungie-Jump Gameplay” for its relentlessly repetitive back-and-forth style.
  • Matt Hazard once set a World Record for “Easiest Way To Achieve 1,000 Achievement Points.”
  • In Matt Hazard 3D, Matt Hazard quotes more than 1,000 lines from a single cult classic horror/comedy movie.  With the writing staff seriously hungover from the “Marathon Keg Marathon” Holiday party, the lead designer resorted to copying an old movie script, and in the process set a new definition for “homage.”  The historic line that put Hazard over 1,000 was: “Good… Bad... I’m the guy with the BFG.”
  • In the hit series starring Matt and Dexter, 1,000 cheats were hidden in the menu system for Murder Force.  By entering the passcode “1K” at the menu, you were then allowed to enter one of several codes, including: MSDQD (God Mode), MSKFA (All Weapons and Ammo), MSMSC (Give Matt Double Muscles) and MSFIN (Game Plays Itself To Completion With Perfect Score)
  • “The Tentacle Beast of Tramm” in Conflict of the Deities originally boasted 1,000 Armored Tentacles – so large that the concept art had to be drawn on the outside of the 4-story Marathon office building. Given the limitations of 16-bit processing, however, the tentacle count was reduced to only 2, creating a more manageable battle.  The revised concept art for the new creature was drawn on a bar napkin in Vegas casino, and traced the outline of a spilled “Cape Codder.”
  • It takes 1,000 gallons of virtual blood to fill one exploding Giant Penguin.  Which may explain the yakking Penguin inability to keep it all in.

I'm not gonna lie, I don't feel "good" about the upcoming "ignore" feature. Maybe it's just me, but I don't like the idea that people can mute other people because they don't agree with them. Spammers and trolls, sure, but not regular community members.

Wow, uh, after having a lovely time with Kirby Air Ride, I decided to try playing some melee, for old times sake... I pretty much disliked my whole time with it. More details in a comment if I get around to it.

The backend code on the site so fun to read. Going through some of Julio's old stuff: if($vars["fappers"]){ $fappoids = 0; $_xt_loop_name = "fappers"; $vars["fappers_cnt"] = count($vars["fappers"]); reset($vars["fappers"]);

Got out of Deadpool. It definitely was a movie with Deadpool in it. Some parents were shocked to learn it was also rated R for a reason.

So... gender and biology. All I'll say here is please respect people and their identities and don't try to push assumptions as fact. It doesn't need to be said to most here but denying people their identities is pretty harmful and very unpleasant.

Any PS4 recommendations for a guy who can't afford PS+, since all I've got is Battlefront and there's next to nothing to do in that game?

Would anyone be willing to help out dear ol' Dreamweaver with Destiny? Need a partner to tackle 7+ matches of Crimson Doubles for that 320 Light Ghost Shell. Will have to work on Comments of the Week first, but will be on later. I suck at the game though.
