Comments of the Week: I'm still getting used to this Edition


I couldn't really think of anything relevant for a header image, so here's a reminder that Portal 2 comes out in less than a week.

Hey guys. Freak here again, filling in for knutaf. I know this week's post isn't quite on schedule, but writing these things take a lot more time than I expected. Lot of respect for those who do this regularly, I have a hard enough time as a backup.

We got a new interface for the cblogs now, huh? I predict big things happening in Dtoid soon. Maybe we can see Podtoid 2.0 resurface? Hint hint?
Seriously, it's been too long since Podtoid ended. I want to see a new one rise!

Now I'm not going to lie, was kinda hard to find this week's comments. Seemed like not a whole lot happened in the comment sections; its one of the reasons why I was kinda late getting these up. However, if anyone can find better comments from this week, feel free to rub it in my face. I'll admit it, I haven't quite gotten used to the job, and I will accept my lack of experience showing.

But enough of that. Here's what I DID find.

Debatoid: Are scores necessary in video game reviews?

I picked this one for a few reasons, but the primary one being that DF brings up some good points about us and reviews. We keep saying that we are tolerant of other reviewers' differing opinions, yet I still know of people who I normally respect will get angry at other people just because they didn't like a game you did. I'm guilty of this as well, and I've tried to stop this as of late. I can't stop anyone, but I would like to remind people that there's a difference between having a counter-argument, and a slam on the person in question. Just consider what it is you're saying before you say it. But you probably don't need me to tell you that. Also, there's a difference between not taking a reviewer seriously, and taking his opinion with a grain of salt.

But in all honesty, the whole blog was filled with great opinionated comments. Debatoid is truly a great idea, and I hope it flourishes.

Let Portal 2 sell you some quality footwear

Now, I'm not normally one to complain about ads on a free blog, but an ad that is over a minute long is a bit much. Fortunately, the Interdimensional Master Shark Demon is currently working on the case. So I guess things will be running smoothly again soon.

How to donate to the Jonathan Holmes burglary fund

This is why I stay at Destructoid. No one can match the kind of Community we have. Oh, and Holmes? If you read this, know that I'd gladly send you my regards in currency form, but alas, I am jobless. So all I can send is my hope that you're able to get everything straightened out to the best of your ability, and that they catch the jackholes who burgled you.

"SuckerPunching" the 360?! *Confirmed*

mrandydixon: Master of Wit and Aroused Male Sexual Organs

Anonymouse - A Re-Introduction

I second the notion. Seriously, that was the most amazing comment I've seen this week. I'd give it a seal of approval if I had one.

Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta starts up April 18

That post doesn't have enough F-bombs in it. I also didn't read a whole lot in the post about people being disappointed with Bulletstorm or buying it solely for the purpose of playing the beta, but whatevs.

ESRB: L.A. Noire has blood spurts, pubic hair, racism

What's that? POLITICS AND CONSPIRACY THEORIES IN MY GAMING BLOG??? Wait, it's just Mattrodroid. Carry on.

Review: SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs

See my previous statements about reviewers. The game doesn't even come out until Tuesday, so I'm really finding it hard to take half of these Jim-blasting comments seriously.

I said before that I thought this was a weak week, and I expect plenty of criticism this time around, which I will try and take. The other guys are probably much better than I am at this.

But I've said enough. I'm out (Freak out?)!

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.

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.
