PS3 fanboy video proves that 99.9% of Youtube users are stupid as hell

3:13 AM on 06.24.2007 // Jim Sterling

'Fanboy' is not a word I like to just throw around like water, idly affixing the label to everyone I meet. Online, the term fanboy, very much like emo, has become far too easily applied to people who truly don't deserve to be deemed as such. Rather, I feel the term should only be applied to people who fit a certain criteria, with the most tell-tale signs being pure ignorance, obvious insecurity and above all, abject stupidity. If you want a catch-all example of just what it should take to be called a fanboy, simply watch the video above, because the utter moron who made it is like every single fanboy merged into one like the big Critter at the end of Critters 2.  
Uploaded by Luxor Studios, a name made funnier by the fact that this has to be a twelve year old kid with emotional issues, we're told in the comments, "This Video was up on Seanluxor. Some stuf Xbox 360 360 fanbaws cant admit." Firstly, I don't know what, exactly, a 'fanbaw' is, but looking at other videos uploaded by Luxor, I see he also thinks the word 'trustible' is in the English language and not part of the bizzare Jupiter dialect that clearly flows from his mouth like a most chunky vomit.
As for the video itself, well, Jim is pressed as to where Jim can begin. One of the very first questions in the video is "Was PS3 Sale a flap?" Yes ... a flap. He asks if 'Sale' was a 'flap'. He also tells us that PS3 did 'beter' than Xbox 360 and Wii and that Blu-ray 'maby' more expensive than DVD. Of course, I won't spoil the fun of pointing out all the hilarious spelling errors for yourself. Collect the set, like bike reflectors in boxes of cereal. 
Otherwise, this video has to be one of the most pathetic, desperate, self-reassuring pieces of toad semen I've ever had the mispleasure of sitting down to watch. At over five minutes, you can tell this child really wants to convince himself that the PlayStation 3 is the greatest console ever made. Really, who gives a crap that some people are daring to say bad things about your favorite toy? If you're confident of its superiority, you shut the hell up, accept its faults, smile at its successes and go back to enjoying it. Defending a piece of plastic and wires to such a zealous degree is laughable. I've also noticed that the ones who throw the word fanboy around so casually, like this little pudstick, are often the worst examples of it. 
I hate Youtube users so damn much.

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.

Recently watched the Cannon Films documentary, by the director of Not Quite Hollywood. Super entertaining, hilarious, and it almost made me want to watch some of the Cannon films. Almost.

Tip for those who have plasma TVs and are playing MGSV; go into settings and make the weapon icon only appears when you're aiming. I had to buy a new TV because the weapon icon got permanently burned into my plasma.

I was excited to learn one of my favorite Philip K. Dick novels, The Man in the High Castle, would be receiving its own TV show. After watching the pilot, I'm cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to the rest in November.

I'm going to be honest; this is my new favourite line in anything ever. GOTY 2015 and all that. Also cocks: [img][/img]
I thought Laura Kate's Destiny piece for Polygon was pretty neat.

Bungie have decided Kojima isn't the only one who can do 4th wall breaking shenanigans. Congratulations Destiny players, you're all now The Taken King.
I have (jokingly) wanted a remake/sequel to Geist. And then I went to YouTube to watch a longplay to see it in action again and thought, "nevermind!"

I'd been worried that Jim had been losing his sanity with all the Steam sludge he's always attacking. If you've been feeling the same way, good news. His new vid warmed that void and reminded me that I follow him because he had no sanity to start with. ;)

I went from listening to the soundtrack of SMT IV, to the soundtrack to Mario Kart 8, Smash 4, Fire Emblem, and now chilling with some Mother 3. All of it was pretty awesome by the way.

After the 11th, I'm going into cryosleep until SMT IV Final is out. I'm sure Mike, Occams and Strider can manage without me. [img][/img]

In need of another writer for my monthly blog on the PS Plus games. Given how nobody really reviews all of them (and after spending time downloading bad ones), I thought it'd be a nice time to try and do it for the PS users out there. So... Need some help
Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom is a thing...TT_TT
