Robert Bowling (aka @fourtwozero) made a cameo on this evening's episode of Family Guy while Peter's team weren't entirely happy with his n00bish behavior – "Is this a crouch button?" On a side note, did anyone manage to catch Quagmire's Gamertag?
Quagmire: "You suck!" Lol I don't know why, but I laughed when I heard that.
LOL, I loved that part, I didn't see it coming. I only caught the second half of the episode; were there any other Quagmire jokes? Because I was wondering....what does Quagmire do when the end of the world is coming? He's already slept with everyone and contracted every disease, so what would be exciting enough to be the last thing he would ever do? And unlike the Simpsons episode with the Wii reference, this episode is funny (Not a hit at The Simpsons, just that one episode). @3 Needs more pedobear references, right? I'd love to see something where you randomly see Pedobear and Herbert duking it out in the background.
funny product placement. I was thinking Peter should've said something like "don't get too excited kids because it'll be broken in a week or two." JOKING!
Still prefer American Dad though...
are there any shows that even use the playstation anymore? More specifically the PS3? It's always xbox after xbox and the occasional Wii. Sheesh Really shows how times have changed this gen. Last gen it was PS2s on every show and Gameboy SPs
Xbox gets to be on more shows because it is far more popular than the PS3. Its common sense, really.
CellularDivision you always feel the need to troll in the gamer zone. Why don't you stay in the open zone like the rest of us?
its more of a promote american products thing than a popularity thing. btw, if you think xbox is more popular than playstation you're either delusional, too young, or you need to get out (of the US) more.
as usual, if you are only using the US to measure popularity then you have failed
We've already proved that your PSN tag is BS, you troll. http://us.playstation.com/p...
THATS FUNNY LOL
wow you are smart. let me explain something to you child: 360 is popular in U.S.A. because of product placement, not the other way around they didn't put a 360 because its popular the 360 is popular, because they do product placement everywhere in U.S.A. because MS pays for it its about how much cash MS is willing to shower onto these shows or are you going to say Apple computers are more popular than normal PC's, because they definitely appear in more shows (advertised as such) but once again, what ever keeps you from breaking down and crying
and anyone else who is interested, you can watch the full episode on Hulu right now. It's a pretty good episode. Here's the link http://www.hulu.com/watch/1...
Family Guy is terribly mediocre now, their style of jokes are so old now. Shows like South Park and Community are much better comedy. Good idea for product placement on Activision's part.
Actually, no, the 360 has sold more, its more recognized, and its more actively played than the PS3. That is a fact, and that is why the media uses the 360 more. A US TV Show uses a popular US gaming device. It's as simple as that. Last gen the PS2 did the same. Why is there always a conspiracy to this? Family Guy is known to use popular trends in their TV shows. People are so reluctant to admit that the US is synonymous with Wii and Xbox this generation. It's not rocket science.
its no conspiracy, its marketing its called product placement apple did it so that almost every laptop in a big block buster movie / series is an apple with the apple logo MS did it so that every "console" on shows and series would be an 360, and in most it is its a double deal, buts its no conspiracy, its just the way things work
I suppose you have proof that MS did this with the Family Guy episode? I'm not denying that it doesn't happen, but it's just as viable that because the 360 has such a strong presence in the States that it gets used in shows. Family Guy makes numerous cultural references but surely not every cultural reference is there because it was paid to be there.
I think there's a balance, european shows + robot chicken advertise the ps3. dunno how the hell fanboyism got into the discussion when it's about mw2, but then again, this is n4g fourzerotwo's only rank 11? damn
King of the Hill > Family Guy. True story.
There is ZERO chance that a popular show like FG plugs someone's product in a positive light without getting paid to do so. Why would you think it wasn't a collaberation when RB was on there and IW is in the credits?
Seriously the comments here are ridiculous, Instead of just laughing at the joke all am reading are comments from tards saying. "Why ain't a ps3 used instead of an xbox" Allow me to answer that question first of all by calling you a spaz, And finally because they used an xbox 360. Who the feck cares it's a sad sad day when even family guy is entering the r-tard "console wars" for no lifers.
was that suppose to be funny? maybe with this type of product placement they can hire better writers.
Oh come on, it may have been shameless product placement, but it was still funny.
Family Guy has not been funny for years. Anyone who says otherwise honestly either hasn't watched the earlier seasons or is a terrible judge of comedy.
Why because you dont like something it means its bad product. GTFO if you think your opinion is the end all. Delusional man. Sure Family Guy isnt as great as before but that doesnt mean its bad. It still has its moments. BTW Family Guy is still highly watched by millions of people so obviously someone likes it. But let me guess your one of those that thinks something is cool until mainstream america catches on. If you are then you are one of my biggest peeves on earth. You are the type that says oh X was better before. Metallica was at their best before the black album. Oh if it sells alot and more people like a certain product it cant be any good. I want everything to myself. Your a douche.
Oh I'm sorry, did I disapprove of your favorite show? Where to begin, where to begin. Maybe the irony that one moment you're telling me that millions of people watch (so it must be good?) and then bagging me for being a counter-culture trend follower the next. I suppose that went over your head though. Maybe I could point out that on tv.com, virtually all the episodes from the newer season have terrible ratings, compared to the earlier ones: http://www.tv.com/family-gu... I suppose they're all counter-culture posers too. Or maybe I could simply tell you, that you're the reason that western TV and movies are full of sequels, remakes, rehashes and shows way past their prime because it just too darn hard for you to get off your ass, realise that the status quo is terrible and try something else.
That a cartoon can start a flame war on here and be the hottest story of the day. More sad than funny actually.
God I hate product placement. - PBR - Sent from my iPad @HOC: You don't wanna hurt yourself dancing, you better stretch out those creamy hamstrings
You hate product placement yet your iPad just announced itself. LoL just a joke, I have a 3gs and an iPad. OT: I still watch FG but only on Cartoon Network Adult Swim.
that was an attempt at irony.
Nice, I was thinking it would just show people using the glitchs lol.
Now THAT would be funny...
Is when he says "imma go duck here" or w/e and the is actual people sitting behind a car!!!! i saw team work on mw2......this cant be right....
haha I wondered why fourtwozero was tweeting about this, anyhow just about finished downloading it By the almighty power of PirateBay and uTorrent.. :)
why would you even bother to pirate it. it was free to play on steam this weekend and it's a terrible game I played for 32 minutes then deleted it without a second thought.The people playing it are such nubs too everyone else was in the 30-40ish rank and I scored higher in my first game.
Not the game dude The Family Guy episode We get shows waaaaaaaaay later than you, only a few exceptions like Lost and South Park and even then its a minimum of 3 days wait.
No viruses! And it downloaded in less than 3 mins
Gets TV episodes the day its released. Waiting for Pirate Bay and other sites to get it, is like waiting for someone to post a news story on N4G... the stories are out there already, just not posted on this site.
That's the first time I've seen that level of video game advertising on a tv show. The Simpsons had a more parodied version of Halo, but this was an actual clip of MW2. I think Microsoft is really finding good ways to spread the name of Xbox.
This isn't the 1st time MS has used Family Guy, Windows 7 comes to mind
I thought Seth MacFarlene would not agree to endorsing Microsoft.
South Park had actual clips of World at War. The Office had actual clips of Call of Duty 2. This isn't new.
South Park had a pretty funny episode briefly featuring Call of Duty: World at War, and like this it was actual footage from the game.
South Park parodied World at War, Facebook, etc. Imagine if they somehow parodied N4G. That'd be awesome.
Yeah, but the Office's reference to United Offensive was after it was old news. 2 years after is hardly product placement, unless they just wanted to build the Call of Duty name. And actual footage fits better on a live action show than it does on an animated one.
What episode does South Park show World at War? I've seen every episode but I don't remember that. I think it's awesome they keep showing the 360 on the show though that's always neat.
Ive always wondered why shows never show clips of UC2 or GOW3 or HR or maybe even Infamous?
Well the makers of South Park are very Pro America. The Xbox 360 is American so I don't think you will ever see a playstation brand name on the show or any exclusive games on the Playstation. But I could be wrong. I have seem most episodes but it is possible they had the PS on there. But I doubt it.
@7.9 There were episodes where Cartman was hassling his mom for a PSP and another where he went into the future in order to play a Wii.
doesn't even know what south park is probably =P poor thing - on topic - i loved the south park Wii episode =D hilarious, and the PSP had its cameo too =) i prefer south park to family guy...and i doubt im alone here
Cmon Kenny think about, don't you want a SEGA DREAMCAST!
Anyone seen the South Park episode Whale Whores? Man Cartman singing a Lady Gaga song while playing Rock Band with Kyle amd Kenny was so funny. The entire episode was great.
Lol. You can buy Cartman's version of Poker Face on the Rock Band store. It's gorgeous! Also... FOOK YOU WHALE!!!
FOOK YOU CHICKEEEN
I had the same problem crouching Peter had when I started playing MW2.
Rofl. That was hilarious. xD But I'm kinda anti MW 2. >:[ Focussed too much on the multiplayer and had a 5 hour campaign... -_- And all my friends play is MW 2. It's like, "There are other freaking games!". Now, if you suck at MW 2 because you don't play it, you're considered a noob. :|
I like family guy sorta but futurama is an extremely better show. and i cant wait for the new episodes on comedy central.
exact opposite I despise Futurama and do not find it even remotely funny
Just fam,ili guy being unoriginal. Only instead of stealing simsons jokes, they are stealing south park pop culture references now. God this show is so horrible. I tried to give it one more chance with that miley cyrus episode but it was just so painful to watch. Family guy was funny for one season when they got that comeback after sucking dduring the premire but it didnt last. Hell they cancelled king of the hill for this garbage. Nothing but flashbacksand terrible writing now.
I agree, King of the Hill was extremely underrated.
I fuc*in HATE king of the hill. That show was sh**. Their are 2 people I suppose people who like Family and people who like futurama and king of the hill, I like family guy. The other 2 I have never found amusing.
RedSky - 30 minutes ago 2.2 - Family Guy has not been funny for years. Anyone who says otherwise honestly either hasn't watched the earlier seasons or is a terrible judge of comedy. -------- or maybe you have no judge of comedy. Family Guy has been reborn from its awful boring state years ago. Clearly you have poor judgement of comedy.
I love you internet hate squad. No matter how harmless the topic or insignificant the point you are trying to make is, you will always be there to hate. Everything from hating family guy, to hating MW2, to hating Microsoft, to hating Seth MacFarlene? And to people whinning about the product placement for Microsoft and not for playstation. You people don't watch enough tv. There have been playstation product spots and parodies since the system came out. Just about every sitcom in existence has made a playstation reference. Wii and 360 are just more relevant now in pop culture then ps3. PS3 is more of a hardcore gamers console only and thus a little outside pop culture.
It'd be funnier if we heard a ten year old playing in the background.
But that's what Live really is, and when's the last time you've known Microsoft to tell the truth...ever....about anything? They couldn't put a typical Live user in the show to market the 360, no one would want one.
Funny wink. :)
Sony spends their money on buying studios and producing exclusive games. This is what Microsoft spends their money on.
Lol yup, ahh well, no studio wants to be owned under us, so we'll just spend our money on ridiculous product placement.
aww your just pissed that it used to be ps2 on all the shows.now the only time you see a playstation is on friends re-runs.its a ratings killer to show a ps3.haha
