  • 00:00:45: Tonight's under-appreciated hero from the Super Bowl: Garrett Hartley. Three 40+ yard FGs, AND a beautiful, surprise onside kick.
  • 11:02:48: @WhitlockJason Bullcrap! He throws one pick, and all of a sudden he's down notches? What the hell is this criteria?
  • 11:09:39: @jim_sterling This has been pretty much confirmed to be a hoax. Or at least not real. Still, the commentary? *PRICELESS*
  • 11:12:28: @dmataconis The Republicans/Neo-Cons ran over the Tea Party movement the way they ran over the Reform Party.
  • 11:13:17: @WhitlockJason God, you can be infuriating sometimes. You're saying if Manning doesn't throw that pick, he's up three spots, basically?
  • 11:16:40: 150 dead and 54 injured from leaping off the Peyton Manning bandwagon. They sucked his dick for 2 weeks, he threw 1 pick, and he sucks again
  • 11:29:59: Here's a trick question: after a loaded weekend, how fast can I get through the new SOCOM and get a review up?
  • 11:30:50: http://bit.ly/9n2GDH - Hey, what the fuck? We were told that Feb. 9th was the embargo date! Fucking hell!
  • 11:38:06: Oh God, I just saw Nippon Ichi's earnings sheet. Please don't let the problem be the American market...
  • 11:47:50: I'm in for a week of HARDCORE VIDEO GAME PLAYING. SOCOM, Hustle Kings, Princess Tomato... you fuckers think this job is easy! :D
  • 12:09:13: @Psymin1 You're shit out of luck. You can complain to EA, but it's not like they're going to refund you your money. Can't trade-in, either.
  • 12:28:46: @jim_sterling And people wonder why we stopped using review scores (though the counterpoint you wrote on that is well noted)
  • 12:30:07: @mrsdanahale Remember that "radical" is really "against the norm". In that sense, anyone who goes out of step with society is a "radical"
  • 12:57:18: Hit-wise, my column is not doing badly! Not great, but not bad for a column (which typically don't hit well)
  • 12:58:42: This week's UTS has already outhit the last week's edition. Maybe I hit a nerve? Or maybe Samuraiter's SWRG link worked.
  • 13:34:03: @jim_sterling Just remember that most of your readers are either teenagers or have the mentality of one. Or lower your score metrics.
  • 13:49:36: Darwinia+ is on XBLA for $15 on Wed. When did $15 become the normal game price for that service? God, people are fucking stupid.
  • 14:54:27: @jim_sterling Fully noted, but here's a legitimate question: would a site the size of Destructoid really lose a lot by eschewing scores?
  • 15:10:26: @mrsdanahale John Brown was a radical. I rather fancy the term.
  • 15:29:39: @sportsguy33 If you're going to blame the field for Wayne, blame the field for the missed FG. Stover's plant foot gave out.
  • 16:07:57: The "moe bubble" bursting in anime makes me giddy. This is what happens when you program around lolicon freaks.
  • 16:34:22: @JVB Nah, you have to rock Kurtis on a boom box the size of Queens on your shoulder!
  • 17:14:36: @Psymin1 Play the demo of the original Darwinia on Steam.
  • 20:06:20: RT @burning_phoneix: My bro is playing CoD4 on Xbox Live.....every other word is "fuck" or "fucker" or "motherfucker"....and we pay mone ...
  • 20:06:43: @WhitlockJason Yes. Their fans suck.
  • 22:43:36: @Psymin1 Batista was a face?
  • 22:58:14: @Psymin1 "Safe"? ISOHunt is the one I use, though you really want to stick to their releases. Otherwise, it's like any other torrent.
  • 23:18:00: It's official: Bret Hart is a massive hypocrite. Owen's turning.
  • 23:19:41: Fuck Valentine's Day. Four days earlier is where it's at~

– Nippon Ichi, too? Yikes.

– Bursting of the moe bubble? Where did you see this?

– Big topic of the comment: As promised, I posted a link to your article at SRWG. ... To my dismay, everybody from members to the Site Admin – Daba Myroad, the SRW version of Superbus – flamed the shit out of it (and you)! I would link you to the aftermath if SRWG permitted anybody but registered users to see the forum. As the situation stands, it looks like I may be courting a ban. -_-

Flamed it? I want to read this. What is the forum?

EDIT: Wow. So I can't sign up to read how badly I'm getting flamed, because the admin disabled signups, and won't enable them until his "mood" changes? I was never this much of a douchebag. Not even close. This is just an elitist asshole, all of my moves had a motive.

What are they saying, exactly? This is the only group of people that are killing me this badly, everyone else has been strangely receptive to my article. THe only guess I can hazard is that this is a bunch of fanbrats that are so insulated that they refuse to believe anything they don't want to hear.

As noted via IM, I have copy-pasted the entire thread to TXT to e-mail to you at your convenience if you have a preferred address.

I never did understand why the sign-ups get disabled periodically, but Daba is a more seat-of-the-pants Admin than you ever were.

this is a bunch of fanbrats that are so insulated that they refuse to believe anything they don't want to hear.

This. 100%. I had hoped that my fandom of choice would be more mature than this, but they have grossly disappointed me today.

Also, the "moe" bubble articles I saw were on Sankaku Complex. The site sucks, but they backed up their sources well. This particular one I commented on was an interview in a business journal with an executive that said that before, if it was "moe" or robot anime, they were able to sell anything. That's no longer the case, as the consumers are backfiring, partially because of the spate of wannabes that come out wanting to be like Haruhi and Lucky Star (fuck you, K-On), but also partially because of shit like the Endless Eight arc in Haruhi. Generally, people don't like being told what to watch, and especially what to buy, though the Endless Eight DVDs have sold a little too well.

This, I find encouraging. (Like I find the previews of Gundam Unicorn encouraging.) It might be time for a return to prior standards, though shit like Dance In The Vampire Bund – do not watch, 'tis full of pervasive underage nudity – is still on the air.

Could be worse. It could be an anime about people gaining power by breast feeding.

Yes, that exists.

*blasé face*

Seen it.
