Comments of the week: “Doing Things The Hard Way” is the coolest edition


VVVVVV shouldn’t be this fun but it is. Anthony was right: This >>>>>> Twilight Princess

Okay so I’m back and ready to Commentoid! Apologies for the absence but now I’ve got more time (or less to do) we can go comment recapping proper! Exclamation mark! Exclamation mark!
Exclamation mark!!!

I’m not a CoD man myself but I thought that this was a pretty decent way of explaining why people do like CoD.

While reading this thread I actually didn’t have a problem with what palpablepalpatine said because he raised a decent point. Not one I’d fully agree with but not one that deserved so much rage over. But I have to agree that using metacritic as a basis for your argument is a load of crap.
• When your score is the highest: You’re wrong! because you liked it too much.
• When your score is the lowest: You’re wrong! because you hated it too much.
• When your score is close to the highest: You’re wrong! because you didn’t hate it as much as the majority.
• When your score is close to the lowest: You’re wrong! because you didn’t like it as much as the majority.
• When your score is in the middle: You’re wrong! because you didn’t like/hate it as much as everyone else.
When someone pulls the metacritic card they will somehow twist the information there to somehow prove that they are right and you are wrong because metacritic has lots of high and low numbers and is therefore fact.

Welcome to online Minecraft!

For all I know there could be a whole load of racist Japanese guys refusing to buy Microsoft consoles but that excuse as always been kind of weak if not just really offensive.

Yeah I actually would have liked to have seen an actual interview with the guy. I’m not going to say that Jon shouldn’t have done what he did but someone should have posted and made an actual interview as well either before or after the joke one. We get interviews with random producers from games no one’s even heard of yet but we can’t get one with the mind behind Tetris?

I think everyone just has to accept that nothing is actually getting better or worse and the only things that really change nowadays in films/games/music is perspective and what is/isn’t popular.

Did I mention this comment was awesome enough times yet? Because GohanGVO is officially one of my favourite people right now. I don’t have a friend’s list on Dtoid simply because I’m weird like that but he would definitely be on it.

Kudos to the four involved in this beautiful rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody. It put a smile on my face as I read through the derp.

From: http://www.destructoid.com/the-daily-hotness-79-046-calories-6-892-grams-of-fat-188445.phtml

All I could think of was that Doctor Who episode where the fat from people came to life and started dropping out of them as creepy little baby things.

Our buddy Bobby has gotta have his bitches and blow. You don’t want to see him when he hasn’t had his bitches and blow.

Jesus Christ guys. Even four year olds know that TITS = PROFIT. Basic maths indeed.

Mario will haunt your dreams after he rapes your mother and kills your father with devilish music.

Have you ever had a comment just make you go “wut?” because this one just made me do that. It wasn’t because of the stupidity of what was said or anything it was just the randomness of it. Look at the comment in context and it’s still pretty stupefying.

From: http://www.destructoid.com/review-gran-turismo-5-188383.phtml

As someone who has recently watched the entirety of Welcome to the NHK (WATCH IT DAMMIT! IT’S GLORIO) I can sympathise with sofik’s ability to see conspiracies out of nowhere. Next he must become a hikkiomori, find a teenage girl, fall in love with her, un-fall in love with her and get a Godamn job whilst doing all of it to an awesome soundtrack.

I still hear this in my sleep.

Unfortunately this as well.

When someone uses sheep as an insult you have every right to stop listening to them right then and there. It’s a proven fact that nothing they’re going to say will be worthwhile at all after that.

From: http://www.destructoid.com/review-splatterhouse-188395.phtml

Why do these douchebags think they’re being original? I’ve read the same damn “Jim hates good games” speech a thousand times with each time coming from a different kind of idiot.

Remember kids: No one cares how much money you do or don’t have. It will never give you the right to brag about pirating. I love the next comment by this guy is an explanation that they don’t care about “Sony” or “Microsoft” showing that they have no idea where the money from buying games actually goes beyond publishers and console manufacturers.

From: http://www.destructoid.com/games-of-the-week-for-11-21-2010-spanish-voting-edition-188144.phtml

I don’t even know.

Well that’s it for last week’s stuff. Again sorry for being late and stuff but my updates are always the worst so it wasn’t a real loss I guess.

About Commentoidone of us since 10:52 AM on 07.30.2010

Welcome to Commentoid, home of Comments of the Week!

Commentoid is where we take the full range of comments; the ones that make you think, the ones that make you laugh and the ones that make you cry (but also laugh), and compounds them into an entertaining package for the viewing pleasure of you, the Destructoid community.

We do take requests from time to time but be forewarned that messages about insightful commentary, brilliant wit or heartbreaking failure are much more likely to get checked if you send them to the correctly listed officiator for that week.

The combined group of commentive officiators (That lay down the weekly sermon of commentacular commentitude within a relay system of commentatoratiativenessisation!):

5. Sean Daisy the wise!

1. Xero the brave!

2. Knutaf the strong!

3. Xzyliac the courageous!

4. LawofThermalDynamics the daring!

6. Handy the valiant!

Back ups:

VGFreak the backupest of the backups!

We try to go live Wednesday - Friday just to leave some room in everyone's schedules and make sure that there's enough time to post. If a post doesn't go up on Wednesday then don't worry as we're probably not dead.
