Consoles aside, this blog is funny and true. Something I acctually enjoyed reading because besides the info from devs this is the most truth in awhile. Keep it up and let the trolling live on.

The blog was quite interesting to read. Excellent job....and so true. And yes...I read the whole thing! :-p lol
Crazyglues  +   2217d ago
Yes,,, yes... yes
I must say I enjoyed reading, that.. I have to agree with Forbidden_Darkness when he said- "One of the most enjoyable blogs I have read in a while. Great job. Hope to read more of you work in the future."

This is really a true look at N4G for real.. I really thought I was the only one who could see it..

Well you gotta admit, the majority of the community of N4G is biased towards the PS3, any 360 news gets full with trolling comments and bashing.

Makes for a good laugh ;)
Arnon  +   2218d ago
lol @ the disagrees.
LordMarius  +   2218d ago
it doesn't surprise me,
I once made fun of MGS4's cut-scenes and got called a 360 fanboy then lost a bubble...
Sarcasm  +   2218d ago
I wonder why that is? Doesn't people ever stop to think why this site was flooded with 360 fanboys, inadvertently becomes dominated by PS3 fans?
Saaking  +   2218d ago
Lol, people still stuck on Nasim? He must have really traumatized you all. haha
kwicksandz  +   2218d ago
Is the author seriously arguing against the huge majority of ps3 fanboys on this site? Has he actually read any 360 news articles lately? lol

what saddens me the most is how few degrees PC related news gets. just panda, me and a few other regulars =(
Sangria  +   2218d ago
Nope, I'm conscious there are many PS3 fanboys on N4G, and I often laugh at some people extremism, but discriminating PS3 fanboys we tend to forget there is also a big community of Xbox 360 fanboys. That's what I pointing out, when people keep whining "N4G is owned by PS3 droids" they also deliberately forget they participate to fanboy fights.

Both camp are immature kids, one side mock the other and the other replicate mocking again. No gamer respect, if you don't have my console your my enemy (btw, I own all five -including handheld- consoles so technically I have no enemy).
Immortal321  +   2217d ago
nobody likes the 360
anything ps3 good or negative it's a hit, "360 is good", that gets troll "360 is bad" that gets agrees. the internet is for the angry Sony guys because in the real world they're minority.

2010 is going to be a blackout year for the other console. everyone already know that the ps3 graphically is superior ever since KZ2. everyone know that the 360 have more games, but on the internet it's a never ending battle.

anyone with a job have a ps3, and a 360 and they don't care

Excellent read, and very true.
docsavage  +   2218d ago
We all lose to the power of the boobies
Good read and some very true statements are tucked in here.
Sarcasm  +   2218d ago
Maybe bubbles shouldn't be bubbles anymore, they should be boobies. For instance, I just gave you a boobie!
pixelsword  +   2218d ago
Er, uh...
...can I squeeze it?

*hangs head down in shame*
Cajun Chicken  +   2218d ago
Heh, I enjoyed reading this.
Bodyboarder_VGamer  +   2218d ago
I didn't enjoy this. I'm against the majority.

BWT I think that if you're in the top ten people with the highest N$G score you get paid. That's why we got a 35 years old Bloodmask so obsessed with this.

With all the energy put into 31 days a month looking for articles for a measly $500 a month, he could have gotten two jobs and made $4000...
pixelsword  +   2218d ago
maybe he's handicapped
I don't know the reasoning behind a lot of things on N4G, but if it helps him out then I cannot speak ill of his motives.
Sangria  +   2218d ago
What is scary is not only BIoodmask's energy to feed the site, but also the energy the other ones spend in order to try to compete with BIoodmask. Even though money is always a good carrot for the human donkey, $500 is certainly not enough to waste a life on it.
Darkeyes  +   2217d ago
God help us if something happens to Bloodmask lol.. N4G will have a serious drought of news if that ever happens. He does put in a lot of effort for the news.. But 500$ is really not enough lol. He puts in thousands of stories here and he might get an average of just a few cents per story..
Parapraxis  +   2218d ago
Very funny blog.
A lot of truth in it too, which is scary.
Thanks for the laughs and the well-written post Sangria.

Thanks everyone, I appreciate you appreciate.

This is arguably the best blog I have ever read on here... lol! Nice work!
UltimateSin  +   2218d ago
Nicely done, great read.
DelbertGrady  +   2218d ago
Minor correction to an otherwise great blog post.
"However, if you say that Gabe Newell is lazy, that Natal will sell tons of consoles, that PS3 will close the gap with Xbox 360 anytime soon, that Xbox 360 is leading this generation, that Left 4 Dead 2 is a good game, that Wii doesn't have games, then everything is ok, you're everyone's friend."

Hmmm... Gabe Newell lazy, PS3 will close the gap(will win this gen in fact), Wii has no games, then yes. They will give you agrees.

On the other hand, if you say Natal will sell tons of consoles (or anything Natal positive at all), that the 360 is leading this gen or (god forbid) that Left 4 Dead 2 is a good game you will have your bubbles stripped in a jiffy and get verbally stoned in the comments section.

Lots of good points though. Great read. =)

Your disagrees prove your point Soda
So sad.
phonicx  +   2218d ago
This is genius ...
MaximusPrime  +   2218d ago
this is the first time i read N4G user blog here and i must say im impressed.

I'm a member of N4G for many years. probably 3 or 4 years.
You are correct that PS3 fanboys are alive and active right now. less than 2 years ago, N4G was mostly xbox 360 fanboys.

Regarding Bloodmask, its true. hes the most active user. TnS used to be active but he mysteriously disappear, thus made way for Bloodmask.

nice job.

"If you're on N4G then you have to choose your side. You're either a PS3 fanboy, either a 360 gamer (because N4G is ruled by PS3 fanboys, remember), you can't be unbiased. If you have both consoles you're a denying fanboy, if you have all three consoles you're a rich man that has nothing to do with his money, if you prefer PC over consoles you're a Pandamobile other account."

You're famous, Panda!!
Pandamobile  +   2218d ago
I knew I had somewhat of a reputation on this site but I didn't think it was that extreme :\
pixelsword  +   2218d ago
lol you're a PC thug, Panda
get used to your celebrity.
Sangria  +   2218d ago
Don't take it bad Panda, I really respect you for representing so much a minority :)
Gun_Senshi  +   2217d ago
I'm a PC Gamer,

So I'm Panda too?
Sangria  +   2217d ago
According to the N4G fanboy conspiracy theory, if you bash consoles and claim PC is the best gaming platform, then yep you're a Panda.

Sony has droids, Microsoft has bots, Wii has Nintendrones/Wiitards....

PC has Pandas.

N4G is so awesome.

FragMnTagM  +   2216d ago
I'm into PC gaming too Panda
but I prefer my 360 first, PC second, PS3, Wii fourth, and PSP last.
Sarcasm  +   2218d ago
My favorite was the one about me... Nasim... LOL
Tony P  +   2218d ago
Entertaining read.

A bit sad how much I agree with the points.
alphakennybody  +   2218d ago
I'm sorry but you make it sound as if the 360 fanboys are the victims here, face it both side have their fair share of them( i can link you all the ps3 doom article, and about anything related to ps3 exclusives and you'll see the sheer amount of 360 fanboy trolling in em). other than that nice read! oh you forgot one more rule

-360 fanboys tend to hide behind the pc when their game is proven inferior than the ps3
oobob  +   2218d ago
As a primary but not exclusive wii gamer, I'll have to say the ps3 people here destroy the xbox folk and I tend to vote them up despite liking my ps3 better.
Sangria  +   2218d ago
Don't get wrong, I don't support any camp. Like I said in old comments, I'm not a console fanboy. I don't care if Microsoft face bankruptcy, Sony stop the Playstation brand or Nintendo takes becomes the only console manufacturer available (well, I would be a bit pissed off because I tend to not like most of Nintendo IPs but it's not a hardware fanboyism).

However, I'm a very aggressive fanboy regarding some series, like Metal Gear Solid, Hitman or Legacy of Kain. I also tend to defend small and independent developers. So if we should call me a fanboy, I'm a game fanboy. So I didn't intend to defend any side, just denounce some hypocrisy regarding the war.

N4G is owned by Xbox 360 and PS3 owners, if you take a look at comments, articles, news, podcasts, videos,... Almost everything is for the PS360. Wii and PC and a very small minority, and yet I already pointed out the problems with minorities. In this point of view, I would only say that both PS3 and Xbox 360 fanboy camps belong to the Hall of Shame of the video game industry. The only people that are more shameful than those people are developers and publishers that feed the war instead of calming down people and respect fairly their partners and concurrents.
wanderofys  +   2218d ago
I always wondered where the handheld fanboys are. For the DS to sell so well, you gotta wonder where those people are. (also I love my DS and my PSP, no hate here)

Also I read the entire thing, in response to "You'll only read the paragraph that interest you and comment this article like if you've read all of it." Mostly spot on. I have the extreme difficulty of wanting to talk about game genres (I'm a huge jrpg fan) and my comments being turned into console wars. I really don't care what console something is on, I just want to talk about games :( I mean really, I hit up an article about 360 rpgs and talk about how I think SO4 sucks or how I think LO is awesome, and my comment is followed by "hurrr look at this 360 fanboy" and then I hit up an article about PS3 rpgs and talk about how awesome Demon's Souls is and I'm a "PS3 fanboy". Which is it? The only place I feel safe from this garbage is PC and handheld articles, because most console fans ignore them.
FragMnTagM  +   2216d ago
That was spot on man
I feel roughly the same way. I come here to find out info about new games and the industry, not to participate in fanboy wars. No matter how unbiased you try to comment, it doesn't matter on this site, you will end up with a label.
bigjclassic  +   2217d ago
This is nothing but the truth
I have been on N4G for a while now, and have noticed the trends that you hit on. I would consider myself a hardcore traditional gamer, owning around 13 consoles and playing each one on different occasions. I have stated on numerous post that I usually play: Wii, PS3, Dreamcast, SNES and N64 because that is what I and my gang of friends tend to play.

But dont go on the forums saying you play Wii over PS3, or your that you think that the FPS movement is a fad. You will get bubble raped.

The truth is so thick that it puts the durability of titanium to shame.
mfwahwah  +   2217d ago
One thing I wish would have been addressed (but apart from this it was a great read). You can never subtract bubbles, you can only divide or add them.
littletad  +   2217d ago
Amazing read
I thought there only a few mature multiple console owners who actually were gamers, and not fanboys. I'm glad to know were out there, even if were in such small numbers.
ZombieAutopsy  +   2217d ago
Article speaks the truth, id have to say before i came to N4G i wouldnt of considered myself a "fanboy" by any means. My earlier comment history i didnt rag on the 360 and even defended it a couple of times but i just had to join the war and chose to be on the Sony side of things (mainly because ive owned all of the Playstations). To be honest i'll play any console and just about any game if its put in front of me because i love to play games but here on N4G i'm a droid and im proud of it.
FragMnTagM  +   2216d ago
I've read a lot of your comments and would not label you a droid.
Maybe I haven't seen any of your recent posts, but from what I can remember of your comment history, you were relatively unbiased. Hope the whole droid thing works out for
ZombieAutopsy  +   2216d ago
lol yea i didnt start acting like a fanboy until about a month or so ago but i rarely even post anymore because its getting kinda old with everyone always b1tching about the same old sh1t.
ChickeyCantor  +   2216d ago
Reading is hard, i like pictures =(.

Uncle Rico  +   2216d ago
This is an excellent post. Nothing but the truth. Too bad it won't be changed due to the frozen mentality of many of the members and admin team.
