I told them not to toy with nature. Now look what they have done.
Comments of the Week is a feature where we scour the front page, community blogs and forums picking out comments. The ones that make you think, the ones that make you laugh and the ones that make you cry (but also laugh), and consolidate them into an entertaining package for the viewing pleasure of you, the Destructoid community.
Comments will fall into three categories:
TRUTH: Squirrel on a tree branch.
LOL: Squirrel on waterskis.
WUT? Squirrel on a bed of rice.
[Many thanks to LawofThermalDynamics for contributing to this week’s comments]
Sean: I would like to go out with her because I have money and a nice car and I think she would respond well to those kind of personality traits.
Oh wait, she used to have a job writing on the internet? Pass. No geek girls please thanks.
Law: Sean, I’d gladly give Alyssa a date, but she better not be a woman cause that’s a deal breaker.
Law: Regardless of how you feel about yearly releases, one thing we can all agree on is that cheap games are usually a good thing.
Sean: I agree. Though my bank manager doesn’t see it that way when I try to explain to him where all my money went.
Law: One day we’ll have a unified system where all video game companies will work hand in hand with each other to provide a universal system of video game co-distribution and co-development…Until then I guess we’re stuck with Capitalism : (
Sean: Woah woah woah, “unified”? “universal”? Isn’t that the same kind of thinking that went into building Skynet in The Terminator? Look what happened to that idea.
Law: Once I locked myself away in a room. Bottle of cola, music, and a marathon game of Tetris. That’s how you get things done son.
Law: Yeah okay, superior power, only needs one disc, console wars, blah blah blah, the bottom line is that getting up and switching disc is a litmus test to separate lazy gamers and the simply apathetic.
Sean: Back in the day I had Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis on the Amiga. It came on 11 discs. You had to swap them constantly. We will never see those days again.
Law: From: Comments of GoldenGamerXero
Law: This is some Inception…woah. BWAAAAAAAAANG
Sean: Wait, wasn’t Gears of War 3 cancelled?
Just kidding Jimmy. Don’t kill yourself.
Sean: From You Laugh, You Lose
Sean: Presumably, nor was dignity.
Law: From This is what vandalism looks like at PAX
Law: I wish played more Metal Gear so that I can make a joke about that, but the comment is already funny in its own right. On a related note, I was at PAX over the weekend and I’m kicking myself for not taking a dump on this toilet…Oh yes, you better believe there would have been pictures.
Sean: Some alternative videogame graffiti:
The cake is a lie.
Sean: From You Laugh, You Lose
Sean In Hader’s defence, both pictures were in the “Wrinkly Things” folder.
Law:…What? You expect anything else?
Sean: I can hardly believe these rates! I must be crazy for giving these kind of rates away!
Remember that Ubisoft is from France, home of liberty, equality and fraternity. Bitter irony is bitter.
Law: From ILU PAX
Law: Legit blog gets legit comment.
Law: Or you’ll what? Burn the internet down? I’ll have you know that Sean’s a volunteer fireman so I’d like to see you try!
Sean: I’ve covered flame wars, you know.
Sean: One time, a moal came right at me, and I had to kill it with a nife.
Law: I saw that. The moal was liek “Here I am!” and you were like “No way!” and then you stabbed it. Crazy stuff man.
Law: I literally put this in the “Wut?” section because he sounds so sure of which game will be better yet doesn’t specify. Tell me oh clairvoyant one for I must have missed the memo.
[Note: This entry isn’t necessarily bad by any means, it just simply made me say “What?” when reading through it.]
Sean: I can see what Law is saying but I’m going to have to agree with General Zod and say I am totally psyched now thanks to EA’s constant coverage of the upcoming The Sims 3: Pets.
Sean: Today’s top story: Man has skin-tearing erection, still not sure if he had an erection at all.
Sean: I for one welcome the added intrusion and hope we have our privacy further invaded. For instance, I can only pee if someone is standing next to me.
Law: I don’t think that’s a statement one should make so easily and assuredly. I for one find it sexy to have the universe saved by a woman…er…was that not politically correct enough for anyone?
Sean: Well, Law, since you didn’t append the sentence with “…as long as they also found time to make me a sandwich.” I think you’ll get away with it.
