Microsoft was already a widely reviled company before it set its sights on the videogame hardware market. Though the Xbox brand has been successful at taking the fight to Sony’s PlayStation products, a seemingly bottomless supply of anti-Microsoft sentiment still exists in the gaming community. We’ve rounded up the one hundred most common reasons why fanboys hate Xbox, and condensed them down to a blistering two minutes of pure,
We'd rather be stabbed in our necks with rusty ice picks than try to hold any sort of conversation with one of these imbeciles. Emergency tracheotomies would both be less painful, and more likely to get us shots of morphine - a far more desirable experience.We're referring to rare, but very real individuals who by some astonishing means perfectly embody corny, old gamer stereotypes that definitely shouldn't describe any actual person ever. The
Out of all groups of people, doing all types of hobbies, gamers hate the most. Gamers (and yes, we include ourselves in this) moan. Christ do they moan. They moan about hardware prices, software prices, they moan about missed release dates and they moan that the game's not finished if does come out on time. Gamers hate buying games that turn out to be rubbish, but say they hate or don't trust reviews. Gamers moan about graphics, sound and
What could we possibly hate about gaming? Try this little lot...
If you want to get ahead, get a hat. Preferably one that makes you look like you’ve ripped the face off a Nintendo character and you’re wearing it like a macabre trophy. It puts the lotion on the goomba.1) Virtual realitywww.cs.cmu.edu/~johnny/projects/wiiOf all the interesting projects we’ve seen people use the Bluetooth-equipped Wii remote for, this has to be the most amazing. By connecting the remote to a PC and
Pokemon have been a part of Smash Bros. ever since its first days on the N64. Initally, only and Jigglypuff were playable, then Melee added Pichu and Mewtwo to the fold, and now Brawl brings in the Pokemon Trainer and Lucario. But all along there were numerous cameos from dozens of other Pokemon, each sprung from a Pokeball and used in battle. The number of surprise Poke-guests grew with each title, leading Brawl to house 30 of the mega-popular
We'll be honest - most of these characters are from the Street Fighter III series. The games introduced a 12-year-old's sketch book worth of extraordinarily absurd bogeymen and we'll never forgive them. Okay, maybe we will, but we're still going to point and laugh.Of course, not all of Capcom's bizarre deviations occurred in SF III - there's plenty of awful character design in the series to ridicule, and we've collected the best of the worst
Face it. No matter how dedicated and/or certifiably mental you are there is absolutely no way you can play all
the games that Mother Software produces from her cavernous womb. You're never going to sample every
level that gaming has to offer. And that's a real bummer, because there are plenty that absolutely must
be played. Like the 59 levels we heartily recommend right here, in fact, that we feel every gamer should experience before they expire.
As you rebuild civilization and restore your people's faith in this sim/action hybrid, you'll find yourself honestly caring about your subjects' helpless lives. Nowhere is their plight more touching than Kasandora, where you help a starving desert tribe grow into a bustling village, only to see an old man die in the dunes. His last wish is for rain, which you grant.
A leisurely saunter through the UAC base lets you casually get attached to the game world, before the thick sense of impending disaster explodes in the most horribly visceral way imaginable. You’re suddenly alone in a dark and noisy world of fear and confusion. The people you met earlier are dead, dying, and torn to pieces.
