Question of the Week #39 – What’s the angriest you’ve ever been at a game? More than one piece of glass has fallen to the T-Dar crew…

Above: Chris met Valve’s Doug Lombardi at E3! No sign of his long lost bruddah though…

Above: Exclusive screenshot of Street Fighter V: Compartment Chests

    Women are NOT objects. PS. im a man.
  • Vagrant - June 13, 2009 10:42 a.m.

    I hate Valve. THAT'S RIGHT I SAID IT. But I do agree the L4D protest stuff is a bit ridiculous. Why edit out the seven minutes of Beatles shouting?! (also is it totally wrong that I'm almost as bad as Brett about the Beatles and I'm actually from Liverpool? >_<) And I think the reason Jade Raymond isn't being put front and centre anymore is because her being a producer means she's basically responsible for everything wrong with the first Assassin's Creed.
  • BigBossOSE - June 13, 2009 6:52 a.m.

    Sorry for double-post, but if it wasn't obvious, that was my answer to the question of the week.
  • BigBossOSE - June 13, 2009 6:50 a.m.

    This one takes some setting up, but I promise it's worth it. Traditionally, I have had anger issues regarding games...tons of broken controllers, a girlfriend hurt by an attached headset while I threw a wireless 360 controller...but a month ago was the worst. My 360 RRoD'd, so to get over it, I got on my PS3 which 5 days later YLoD'd (Yellow Light of Death). It is out of warranty, and a 60GB to boot. I bought a $30 Dreamcast game and began playing my DC. In one week, the A/V outlet just gave out (second Dreamcast to have that happen) and so I was crushed. On Chris's recommendation I bought GTA for DS, and got addicted, and two weeks later, I got angry at a failed mission and slammed the DS down on a table, thinking these things were traditionally indestructible Nintendo products, but I was wrong. With the bottom screen broken, I sat there, all my games broken, and with a little sob, I tore the DS in half. I then threw the pieces in the yard and sold all of my 360, PS3, PS2, and DC games, vowing to disavow gaming as a hobby. However, while listening to T-Dar (I'm not sucking up, I am being honest) I just had the realization that I can't give this hobby up, even if it is a financial nightmare. The only problem now is that I have to start fresh, with only a working Game Boy, Genesis, and Gamecube to play. But don't worry, I'm still here, still a gamer.

  • Hurricrane - June 13, 2009 1:11 a.m.

    yay Lizzie and Tank Gilbert are back
  • iluvmyDS - June 13, 2009 12:58 a.m.

    I really wish Lizzie would talk more, also who sacrificed Chris to the gods this time?
