Matt Hazard will lead to our 2012 demise and other facts

6:40 PM on 11.23.2009 // Jordan Devore

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.

Just finished watching The Phantom Menace. Yeah, Jar Jar is as bad as people say. Baby Vader is so cute and also kicks some serious ass. One of the best lightsaber battles of the series, if not the best one. It was pretty neat!

Can't decide where I should upload my latest project. Either on my YouTube Channel or on Game Anyone. On the one hand YouTube gets more exposure, but Game Anyone is where some of my more popular walkthroughs are. The game is 3D Land if anyone is wondering

Anyone know if the Bethesda games on sale on Amazon for a certain amount of time, or through Monday?

In light of the fact that Xenoblade Chronicles X is fast approaching, I suggest we start planning out a Destructoid Squad! NNID is TysonOfTime. From what I've heard, it doesn't appear Squads are region locked (except for Japan), so everyone's welcome!

Listening to this on a Tall Oaks level of RE: Revelations 2's Raid Mode is entrancing, for some reason.

Need a reason to support Indivisible? Shantae is in it!. Back it or spread the word, every bit of help counts.

Sometimes I miss how hilariously janky Brawl was, and I still have a lot of fun playing it. Not sure if I could ever take it seriously as a competitive game, but I want to enter at least one Brawl tournament in the future. You know, if I can find one.

I love how on a slow news day I can always turn to Qposts for something else to read and think about. Keep up the mojo fellas!

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.

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]

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.

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.

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.
