...:D

Sorry.

CViper3467d ago (Edited 3467d ago )

** when faced with having to name game titles that are superior to PS3 titles it is advisable that you stand up and state that graphics don't matter. This can be used even if you were just bragging about how much better graphics are on the 360. Of course clearly you understood that everyone knows graphics weren't the only thing of importance when stating that Gears2 is the graphics king, but now when its questioned. You can pretend to take the high road, and state that graphics don't matter. This will leave you a great exit, and you appear to be more of a gamer than the other person asking you to back up your claims of graphics superiority.

HD, i love this one:

17. You think games that are on PC are XBOX exclusives.

boodybandit3467d ago (Edited 3467d ago )

HighDefinitions list (1.1)

"54. in Microsoftmatics, 33% is less than or equal to 0%"

I LOL'd

Funny Stuff

HighDefinition3467d ago

I got give Pirate Thom credit for that one. I just broke it down for the list.

He said it a few days ago, and I think it`s some of the most ingenious words ever spoken on N4G.

memots3467d ago (Edited 3467d ago )

you forgot someone on that line.

18. You find yourself agreeing w/ POG, Bladestar and Lachance.
[Edit] 18 . You find yourself agreeing w/ POG, Bladestar and Lachance , Giantenemycrab.

GiantEnemyCrab3467d ago (Edited 3467d ago )

haha 1.1 and 1.10 put more effort into their list than even the author of the article. You must think about 360 fanboys all day long.

We R N UR Head! haha

Thanks for remembering me memots. It's only fare since whenever we are listing the crappiest music ever heard I always include you/your band.

Wile3467d ago (Edited 3467d ago )

Good for you CViper! Embrace it and enjoy it.

memots3467d ago (Edited 3467d ago )

Hey thank for that. giantenemycrab

LoL i didn't even know there was a band name memots thats awesome.

My nickname had always been MotS (thats what i used on arcarde machine for my high score )

But in this age of the internet it almost impossible to use MotS its always always taken. So i put my name initial (M.E) in front of mots and with the years it became memots.

You shouldn't say the band memots sucks man they might be xbox360 gamer wich would make them awesome in your book. ;)

JD_Shadow3467d ago (Edited 3467d ago )

61. You answer the "MS bribes third parties away from the PS3" line with the "Sony did it to Sega last gen" line.
62. The only source you trust for sales figures is VGChartz.com.
63. You think America is the only country in the world.

zethos563467d ago

But I haven't had RROD yet :)

PS3 Blu-Ray NOT dead3466d ago

You said: "63. You think America is the only country in the world."

It should be changed to "63. You think America -IS- the world."

1. Prod is not a myth still happens but not as much.
2. I never seen someone say they should use DVD forever. (edit well tech will always advance and they should know that :P)
3. Blu-ray will always be better because its is hidef for movies and bigger games on 1 disc (MGS4) . BUt DVD can use 3 for a game if people are not a bum and can take time out to change it.
4.some muti plate games do have problems on ps3 but there mostly from ea :P And some exclusive games do have problems if you cant see that your blind.

12. DO you know if it has, i don't. Engines have limits as well you thought.
13. i think allot of people do :P but i'm not that old yet i got a long way to go yet. I've only got 1 parent the other is a tosser.
14. its is
15. The first one did.
16. it properly wont but you never know in this world.
17. exclusive to ms. but what about people that only got console and a 9 year old pc?
18. sometimes they are right but they are also wrong allot of the time but people don't like the truth from both sides.
19. Sony do lie sometimes but not all the time.
20.don't like the game so i don't care :P
21 Well they are both great and forza is better in some ways but thats my opinion.
22. don't bother collecting them i just play the dame game.
23.To expensive. :P
24. no i got my blueray player in my ps3. that will do me fine.
25. it will happen in due time i think but not yet.
26. i don't ahte you because i don't know you yet.
27. i love my ps3 :P and 360 and my pc.
28. They can be i was on l4d(pc) and on a dedi and it was crap, lagging allot :P
so peep to peer sometimes is good but it depends on the other peoples connections are like. as long as it don't lag i cant tell the difference. ( i see what you mean my bad. didn't make sense at all haha)
29. what a wast of money. wire alll the way :)
30. LOOL

Happy gaming . The list is just for fun.

HighDefinition3467d ago (Edited 3467d ago )

28. You should take a little more time spelling/typing. (LOL)

"I never seen someone say **using they should use** dvd forever"

I have never seen anyone say that either.

But I have seen people say......

"Dvd will be fine forever for gaming"

rucky3467d ago

"But remember! You’re a Fanboy! You must hate the opposition with a passion and never acknowledge the fact that they're console is pretty much the same as yours. One is always better! And that one just happens to be the one that you hold onto at night."

Yeyeah!

Z5013467d ago (Edited 3467d ago )

What happened to the DLC that never came out?

creeping judas3467d ago

Came out a while back now. Something on a moon hurtling towards a planet, I forget what it was called now? But we've only had the one.

mintaro3467d ago

Bringing down the sky, but they promised a bunch of DLC, im still waiting....

lord_of_balrogs3467d ago (Edited 3467d ago )

It's called Bring Down the Sky, it takes around 1.5 hours to complete.

PirateThom3467d ago

Yeah, but they promised a load of episodes leading up to their next game.

I'm guessing the EA take over messed it up.
