Nazis invade Live. Forza creator's vision shat upon.


Source: Destructoid

Dan Greenawalt, the director of Forza Motorsport 2, had a vision. He wanted car-geeks and game-geeks to geek together under the hood of uber geek machine, the 360. He wants gamers to get into cars, and he wanted mechanics to get into games. One of the mechanics (pun!) used in implementing this vision was create a community that would allow users to promote, customise, share, and even auction off their own cars. Apparently (I only played the demo) the paint customising options in Forza allow people to create near replicas of the Mona Lisa on the cars. This gives the users the ability to create the most stylish, most sought-after cars in the community.

And then above happened. I'm sure Mr. Greenwalt is double-thinking the idea of giving so many people a public platform to express themselves on. This freedom of expression sort of reminds me when Animal Crossing on the DS told a girl to go suck it out of a donkey's.

STOP THE PRESS!!


Forget Paris screaming her way back to prison, or the world's fastest wheelchair, we have just received reports of a unique phallic bread roll.

Early reports are sketchy, but eye-witnesses have used words such as "hilarious", "hahaha", and "earth shattering". As to the origins of this spectacle boulangers, surely a kooky, irregularistic breadist is to blame, peeping through shelves and fondling himself madly as helpless victims grope the yeasty expression of his inner perv.

DRAMATIC UPDATE: Avid photographer Proficious Fax snapped the 8th Wonder (insert) while trying to instead grab a snap of the Lock Ness Monster. "All I wanted to see was a giant lizard. Now all I have is a bready cock. It's a disgrace. Someone should pay."

Favourite Film Quotes


Speaking of favourite film quotes James, I just remembered this classic from Good Will Hunting. (Am I the only person who doesn't hate Matt Damon?)



"Why shouldn't I work for the N.S.A.? That's a tough one, but I'll take a shot. Say I'm working at N.S.A. Somebody puts a code on my desk, something nobody else can break. Maybe I take a shot at it and maybe I break it. And I'm real happy with myself, 'cause I did my job well. But maybe that code was the location of some rebel army in North Africa or the Middle East. Once they have that location, they bomb the village where the rebels were hiding and fifteen hundred people I never met, never had a no problem with get killed. Now the politicians are sayin', "Oh, Send in the marines to secure the area" 'cause they don't give a shit. It won't be their kid over there, gettin' shot. Just like it wasn't them when their number got called, 'cause they were pullin' a tour in the National Guard. It'll be some kid from Southie takin' shrapnel in the ass. And he comes back to find that the plant he used to work at got exported to the country he just got back from. And the guy who put the shrapnel in his ass got his old job, 'cause he'll work for fifteen cents a day and no bathroom breaks. Meanwhile he realizes the only reason he was over there in the first place was so we could install a government that would sell us oil at a good price. And of course the oil companies used the skirmish over there to scare up domestic oil prices. A cute little ancillary benefit for them, but it ain't helping my buddy at two-fifty a gallon. And they're takin' their sweet time bringin' the oil back of course, and maybe even took the liberty of hiring an alcoholic skipper who likes to drink martinis and fuckin' play slalom with the icebergs, and it ain't too long 'til he hits one, spills the oil and kills all the sea life in the North Atlantic. So now my buddy's out of work and he can't afford to drive, so he's got to walk to the fuckin' job interviews, which sucks 'cause the shrapnel in his ass is givin' him chronic hemorrhoids. And meanwhile he's starvin' 'cause every time he tries to get a bite to eat the only blue plate special they're servin' is North Atlantic scrod with Quaker State. So what did I think? I'm holdin' out for somethin' better. I figure fuck it, while I'm at it why not just shoot my buddy, take his job, give it to his sworn enemy, hike up gas prices, bomb a village, club a baby seal, hit the hash pipe and join the National Guard? I could be elected president."

The plans they made put and end to you (A.K.A. Hollywood is full of shit)

Television took another blow last night with Sarah Silverman (Who? Oh, that woman everyone thinks is a Jew.... I mean, funny) publicly humiliating Paris Hilton in front of an audience of.... peers? (I'm linking to WWTDD instead of YouTube directly 'cause it's a funny site).

Believe me when I tell you that no one is happier than me in seeing this criminal go to where she belongs. Seriously, the more I learn about Paris Hilton the more I begin to understand those towel-heads blabbing on about the Evils of the West.

Truth is, television is a better medium than that used to put somebody down. T.V. is one of the most fundamentally important landmarks in human history and yet it is being abused more and more due to competetive entertainment and greedy business models. To quote one of my favourite movies:

"Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires and lights in a box. Good night, and good luck."

Translation: perpetuate your regressive piss elsewhere, Hollywood.

Weekly Mysteries #1



Greetings travellers. Each week I shall bring to you attention one of the many mysteries this world has to offer. Many you will have heard of before, some you many not.

This week week we shall look at... SOUNDS OF HELL.



















"As a communist I don’t believe in heaven or the Bible but as a scientist I now believe in hell," - Dr. Azzacove.



I'm not going to recount the entire story. If you want that I'd suggest reading it here or if you are very lazy there's a youtube video explaining it here.




The basic gist of it involves Hell being located inside the core of Earth and Scientist drilling close enough to it to hear the sounds of the damned. Now I'm not a religious person, mainly due to the fact that things like this are the nearest there is to proof. But if I was religious this would scare the shite out of be. The idea of Hell being in the Earth's core never occurred to be, as logical (if we assume that The Bible is a factual text) as it would be.




The part about the 8ft long worms as well... Aside from the fact that it's a freakin 8 ft long worm, I find this idea pretty creepy. Again, taking a giant leap of logic and assuming the Bible is really, what the hell (pun intended) would happen is.... something got out?




Man I'm glad I'm a devote Atheist. Thinking like a Christian even for 5 minutes just fills me with fear and worry.

You've Got To Be Kidneying Me!


It turns out that the Deutch tv show we plastered on our blog was nothing more than a ruse. My source is the Wii news channel, so don't ask me to link to this...

One of the details of the hoax was that the public had to vote for whichever contestants they wanted to get the kidney (i.e. live). It's all terribly like the Running Man, sans Jesse Ventura, and, well, everything else, but the point remains that I'm the best at making a Malteser hover over my mouth by pursing my lips and blowing like a true champion.

The sad part is, the three contestants really are awaiting kidney transplants, and did the hoax as part of a campaign to raise awareness on the lack of available donations, specifically in the Netherlands. Nice to see that people can maintain their sense of humour during the toughest trials of life.

Oh, and the picture was the first image result when I searched for the word 'ruse'.

Cyriak

Cyriak is an unemployed (still!?) Brighton-based graphic designer / animator. His website's pretty nifty, but of great interest are his animated gifs, which are great for sticking on your phone as a screen saver and making people go "oMg wTF!?" as you casually put it into your pocket.

So, the internet as a career launch pad... Why the shit amen't I famous yet!?

Iraq? No(r)way!!

A recently published report confirmed Iraq as a dangerous shit hole and Norway as "le place du safe du le monde".

Of the 121 countries surveyed, the most dangerous listed were:

112: Angola
113. Ivory Coast
114. Lebanon
115. Pakistan
116. Colombia
117. Nigeria
118. Russia
119. Israel
120. Sudan
121. Iraq

All places, you'll agree, with the exception of corruption-riddled Russia, are stacked with 'los morenos'.

Coincidence?

Hardly........






Is Manute Bol hiding Sudanese crime between those chopstick thighs?

The iPhone is too poopular...


Appleinsider are running a report on Apple's target share prices rising along with interest in the iPhone, which is nowhere near as exciting as Google developing an ass-load of apps for it.

Truth is, the iPhone will come out, it'll sell loads, prices will drop, and before you know it we'll all be using "iPhones", that is, slim phones that can do everything better than the iPhone but don't quite have that je ne se qua that Apple's magical device does.

I heard once that there was a pregnant woman on fire, and the iPhone put out the fire and delivered the baby while showering the woman with gold coins. True story!

Outcry over TV kidney competition

Source: BBC News

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/6699847.stm



So there's a new Dutch TV show where contestants compete for a kidney transplant. Now I know everyone's initial reaction is gonna be "Wow, that sounds brilliant. And not shit." but I ask you. Is it?



I mean really it's just gonna be someone faffing about and then going "Derek, Derek you can have my kidney." Shit someone call the plumber while I puke into the sink in anticipation!!



Surely they could have spiced it up a bit. Like what if one person got the kidney, but then had to defend it next week against another bunch of hopeful transplantees? And maybe they had to wager one of their own organs? Someone could go in just needing a liver and come out needing a spleen and lower intestine, but having 4 bowels.



Well until real life catches up with me we'll have to put up with this shit.

I mean to say

"Gggyymmm"

There's a guy in my gym


who looks like Sammo Hung.

I dislike Destructoid, but....

They're spreading rumours like the clap about MGS4 on the X360.

It wouldn't surprise me. GTA was a flat-out Sony exclusive for so long, and it brought in a lot of casual gamers that wouldn't think too much of MGS, and thus a much bigger fan-base for Sony. GTA was THE most important game for Sony, and look what happened there.

We've already seen MGS on a host of other platforms, including the revamped MGS2: Subsistence on the orignal Xbox. So having MGS4 on the already popular, already successful X360 really wouldn't come as much of a shock. Capcom have embraced the machine, thankfully. I can easily imagine Konami following.

OMFG iTs t3H 4li3nZ!

The Augusta Chornicle is reporting on DNA-reasembling organisms.

From the article, "Humans and most organisms can tolerate few breaks in DNA molecules, he said, but kineococcus radiotolerans has the ability to reassemble itself."

While the rest of you are arguing over crap like what colour eyes you want your child to have, I'm gonna be thumpin' the table shoutin', "GIMME SOME O' DAT WOLVERINE JUICE!", because, y'know, they WILL eventually put this stuff in humans.

Best Videogame Controllers

Crave, the " All I want for Christmas 365 days a year" blog have posted their top five game controllers.

Make of it what you will. My own personal sentiments are that some controllers work better for certain games, and that the PS1, PS2, PS3, PS3 with rumble controller is lame and kinda defines the term 'tacked-on'. In an age where 3D gaming is the norm, Sony still feel it fit to put the analogue sticks in a secondary position to the D-pad.

My favourite controller? Stick another anaolgue stick where the C-buttons were on the N64 controller. KERPOW!




----------------------------------------------------------------------

Edit: Something like this? - Andrew



















Second Edit: Actually would this be your dream controller? I like the idea of being able to analoguely pause a game. Sometimes i don't want to abruptly stop the game, more of an ease out. - Andrew



GYAR!

The second pirates of the carribean movie was a bit lame. Gyar! Just testing thiws works

A girl in my class

looks like Cat from Red Dwarf.

But a Japanese version.

Japanese minister 'kills himself'






My favourite part was "Mr Matsuoka had allegedly claimed more than 28m yen ($236,600; £118,300) in utility fees at his parliamentary office, where utility costs are free. He denied any wrong-doing. "


What kind of utilities were they using? Gold-plated rent boys?
r520 blog
see what good will come of it
we shall see won't we

Barry's cynicism

Barry's been too critical of the R520! I say we vote him out! He calls it 'nonsense', and he says my t-shirt of the dragon on a skateboard with the words 'Hip- to be flare!' is 'uncool'. These are scathing attacks on our frinedship and sense of style!
Keep the nonsense out of emails and in here..... genius.

The Punisher

I forward the motion to vote The Punisher as new minister for justice! And not Lindsay Lohan!
