I think people are just looking for anything to get HHG; I am not talking about Insomniac Games or Bungie, I am talking about the haters who try everything to blow things out of proportions
I care just enough to reply to your comment and say I don't give 2 sh*ts and it doesn't make this guy any less of a PS3 fanboy poser who seems to misrepresent these developers enough that they have to pay their employees to go on record to clean up the mess. You are just one of HHG's tricks..
No no no, if it's a thread regarding HHG, you have to moan about how much you hate him, moan about the way he talks, moan about how much you dislike the videos and their content, but, whatever you do, continue to click on every following thread regarding him. You cant just steer clear of it.
Fishy I'm pretty sure you're trying to pull a funny but the thing is that you don't have to click on a HHG article to know what it's all about. His over eccentric, extravegant title is usually the one that grabs your damn peripheral vision when scrolling for news. I don't have nothing against HHG, but he does have a way to annoy you when he hypes his show and all you get is just over exaggerated opinions.
I rarely watch the show but when i do I see the same exact ppl saying the same exact stuff every time lol. I just dont get how ppl can choose to watch a show they dont like then complain about it.
"You won't find this NO WHERE else" Ahh professional journalism at its best.
I love the cheesy "but you click etc..." arguments , it is well known thing that many people here comment without going into each articles or watching videos . Hell some people even love to pontificate about others not reading the articles and judging from the get go with flamebait titles and first lines , but suddenly it doesnt work with HHG ? The title and summary usually gives quite a lot of insight . Especially about some of the old HHG ludicrous announcements . So no sorry , when someone comments about HHG , it doesnt mean that somone bothered with the content , or that he didnt . It means squat . The one thing i wont agree with , in HHG's bashing case , is how it quickly turns into racial slur , and how some people never complaint about equally crappy site , such as destructoid or kotaku among many others
I for one support HHG. He's doing what he loves and for some reason people like to hate on him constantly when he does something wrong. Does HHG prefer the PS3 over other next-gen consoles? Yep Does he overhype things? Yep Are his titles flaimbait? 100% YES The question I have trouble answering is...WHY-DO-U-PEOPLE-CARE? If u don't like him, let him be and IGNORE him. I suggest that the haters on this site look in the mirror, because obviously they have some MAJOR problems with themselves if their hating on a person whose actions don't affect them in the LEAST. HHG has already accomplished more in this industry than any of us may accomplish in 3 or 4 lifetimes.
the haters b!tch and moan every time a post of his comes up but they never stay away for that reason alone, you cont blame hiphop for coming back every time
what is going down with HHG and bungie/insomniac? Where does this all begin so I can bring myself up to speed?
Gamer1: What's with this whole Insomniac/HHG thing? Gamer2: yeah yeah yeah, lolz, HHG went exaggerating stuff and they went postal!! lolz Gamer1: Oh snap! So, what did he exaggerate? Gamer2: You know he likes to just hype things and he know NOTHING!! Gamer1: yes yes sure but what did he exaggerate? Gamer2: He's always exaggerating! Gamer1: but what DID he exaggerate? Gamer2: .... Gamer1: Hello?.. H-E-L-L-OOO?!?! Gamer2: .... Gamer1: Uhm ok, I heard bungie got beef with HHG cause he said Bungie is stepping up their halo game because of Sony. Gamer2: yeah! that tool thinks halo has pretty much been the same since halo2. HAHA! noob, bungie are going to sue him! Gamer1: .. sue him?.. for his view point? no company is that stupid Gamer2: YES THEY ARE! er, I mean no they're not, I mean... argh!!! you bad person, you trick Smeagol; Smeagol no talkie no more, head hurt QQ... my precious, they stole it from us! Gamer1: O.O :/ -.-
Everybody talking about he over exaggerate NEWs FLASH everybody from up north talk like that I got so many friends from up north that get so hyped about little things well black people iono about white people
I know many of you dislike hiphopgamer but common if you hate him so much and believe he craves attention why do you all persist on filling the comment section with comments and why do you click the story. I respect him for the simple fact when all these people insult him he never once stoops to their level but replys very professionally and finshes with one love god bless.
Yeah, what else is new?
@Baka-akaB exactly most who are b*tching about hhg dont even click on his videos unless he cleverly disguises them myself included. i hate his articles- i feel dirty everytime im swindled into one of his articles because of sensational headlines or deceptive video stills. he is full of sh*t frankly, he spews what HE thinks is going on as fact. he banks on the uninformed fanboys to bate at his every word because A:they love all the pro sony bull, or B: they are xbox fanboys who watch to mock him and pick apart what he says. @Ceekay hey i prefer sony, but HATE HHG..... so what does that make me?
great listen and i have to say hhg and everyone on that show was right. the haters look so foolish because instead of ignoring him you listen to him anyway and then b*tch about it. he had the guts to get into gaming like he did and i think people are jealous because they didnt have the balls to do it themselves. damnit i wish i had the stones to do what he does. anyway much props to hhg and the little guys who are doing what they love while the rest of us just live our normal lives. disagree away all you want im going to to Star Ocean International.
very good Chubear... you get bubs for the Smeagol reference! He remains a solid reminder that we all most never lose our precious. .. and be darn sure not to let anyone steal it from us!
I can't understand the hate some people have for HHG. I know on his first few shows that he came out with he was talking mostly about what Sony was doing, but get real people, HHG has been bringing the news from both sides for quite a while now and doing a great job.
This is the web. Just give me the highlights. Anything more than 1 minute, I don't care.
I can actually understand what HHG was saying when said it took Bungie awhile to deliver the quality that is Halo Reach.(not his exact words) I can understand that. But I think the area where he irks people's nerves is his exaggerated speculations. This can also fall back on the developers too because thy are way to secretive most of the time, Insomniac has yet to confirm Resistance 3, eventhough we know it's out there(add on the big @$$ billboard). We all do speculate but I think HHG should tone it down a bit. But he has a right to voice his thought people on here do it 24/7.
2 of the most respectable studios calling them liers and N4G do nothing about it. It's time to BAN this idiotic website fro here.
has HHG given us anything of worth??? Making up outlandish titles and putting words in developers mouths is not helping. I'm just saying was there ever a time hes truly contributed to the gaming community? Has he given us news before Ign, gamespot, etc....??? If there is an option of filtering out his articles on N4G please let me know because I don't want to see some awesome title only to click on it and get pissed off.
Lost respect for Godfree for interviewing such a joke of a person and if it wasn't for N4G HHG would not even exist; his answers are so ridiculous, pardon me why I bang my head agains the wall for a few hours after having to listen to his junky voice....
wow did I just listen to a minute + of crappy intro music? Hmm well it seems he may have gotten a lucky break here but he is always over hyping stories, making it sound much bigger than it is...is than being a gaming fan or just trying to rake in publicity for himself?
Please shut this douche bag down!! I cannot stand HHG and neither can the rest of you
His opinion is just his opinion. my boys at bungie are too busy making paper to pay attention to this wad.
He is no expressing his opinion as he presents information in the form [to paraphrase]"...exclusive. .can't say much...watch this space..." giving the impression he knows more than he does. I.e. fact he cannot share due to NDA,for example.
no one cares about this stupid ps3 fanboy poser. opinions of hhg are bias in 360... please GTFO of n4g stupid hhg.
..and yet, you are always actively posting on any news involving HHG lol
I think he has a thing for HHG
the very thing you are doing to downplay HHG is making him grow bigger. Remember that for next time before you make a post for any article relating to him.
the first post
Still an idiot to me
I clicked agree
as did i
he's just annoying
It's humorous that 17 people think he isn't an idiot. Even if you enjoy what he does, or have respect because he is doing something he loves, the guy is still a total air-head. I remember watching an intro to a video he did parodying the Dark Knight, and it has haunted me to this day. Besides, the whole gangster scene is so 90's now lol.
means you will find it everywhere :)
Why so much hate this guy? Everybody wants him to fell. He's doing what makes him feel good. You people who don't like him still watch his show.
ahahaha HHguesser is trying to lay the blame for the "misunderstanding" on another website. This guy can never accept the fact that he spews BS. He was Caught in a lie with his Claim the Brink 360 was shown to him and it looked better then KZ2. When it came out that all that has been shown was the PC build HHGuesser has not apologized to the community for misleading/exaggerating.
I see 4 people are butthurt by the fact HHGuesser has been proven wrong time and time again and doesn't admit to using flamebait to get hits. All I can say about him/it is, it should end.
Keep doing your job hiphopgamer... if you don't have haters your not doing your job ..that goes for anyone.If you don't like the way he present news don't watch it.You people look so stupid for complaining over the internet for somthing you have the power to control to watch or not.Not like someone got a gun to your head.
You Lot are Just Jealous of him loool makes me laugh really, instead of giving him props for making it big when he was a nobody a year ago, you lot get on his back. Edit: @ below wat spamming??? the guy makes 1-2 articles every week 4 if hes not lazy and you call that spamming right?? Jealousy is a Sin my friend!
because spamming N4G with constant flamebait makes you a somebody. EDIT: those 1-2 artcle are enough for any sane man but you're right I'm indeed jealous........of not being called out by game developers.
...that after i get done developing my future games this guy won't be able to find me because IMHO he's WAY too obnoxious and eccentric for my taste. I would not be able to stand to be next to him for more than 3 minutes. In my opinion HHG makes our industry look like a bunch of morons that let the most retarded people do anything they want. HHG would be acceptable in my eyes if he just calmed down, toned it down a few notches and used proper english instead of slang. This is the Video Game Industry, not Brooklyn or the Bronx. Edit @ Punch: I'm glad he gets excited for games and is passionate about the industry, HOWEVER if your going to work in this industry (programmer, designer, PR, journalist, etc.) you have to be professional and use intelligent words and use complete thoughts, not slang or be obnoxious in the face of developers and ask them stupid questions. Also you cant talk about how great someone else's game is and promote another game while talking to another developer about their game.
It's his way he present news... maybe some people like his style of journalism.If everyone was the same how the world would be now?
people dont like him because of the way he talk not because of what he is saying that kinda ignorant really
Being professional....i know a few things about being professional i talk to Chiefs,Captains, Majors and other high ranking military officials all the time.Most of the time the higher ranking are more interested in those who standout (and not a damn "tool" 24/7).To me the way hiphop standout and the way he present news is a really good look to get himself out there.He's just being himself and some people like that like me.
Now can he inject some professionalism into his journalism? I dont want him to change I just want him to be a little more professional.
Use intelligent words? Who gives a f*ck what type of words he uses? You do not have to watch the videos, therefore the way he talks is not affecting you. His dialect caters to a certain demographic, which is the hip hop community. The hip hop community has their own dialect, because of how they were raised and the environment they were brought up in. So some people enjoy that they can listen to someone that sounds like them, therefore relating. (hiphopgamer isn't the best representation I will admit, because he definitely butchers words much more, and his slang doesn't really sound natural, but he is the only representation of the hiphop/gaming community combination.) What if damn near everybody talked with the hip hop dialect? You would feel the need to find someone who talked in a similar manner as you do, so you could relate to them and receive the news in a more comfortable way. Everybody doesn't talk like you, so STFU and accept it. Don't knock what he is doing, because it is beneficial to many people. If you become a developer, then refuse to deal with him. Or sh!t, just deal with it. Stop b!tching. The benefits he gives to the gaming community far outweigh the negatives. He represents for a certain demographic and is successful at doing it. He has interviewed many developers, so he deserves some respect for coming from nothing and becoming something. Stop hating. Personally, I am not a fan by the way. But, I simply do not watch the videos. Problem solved. Yup, it is that easy.
that actually hurt my brain, thanks.
Please share if you can decipher his ebonics?
There's is absolutely no need for your racial slurs. Be an adult, don't be an idiot.
And he is african american so I think he is inclined to be that way to his own race if he wants to.
Even if he's like Uncle Ruckus from The Boondocks? lol =p
thats not racist. AND they teach Ebonics in school now...
Who knows why there is so much hate towards this guy, even the admins on this site dislike him. Jim Sterling do the same exact thing, but he gets a pass. Hmmm..... who knows.
I cannot believe I'm going to defend Jim Sterling, but there are two very key differences between Jim Sterling and HHG... 1) Sterling states his opinion (no matter how incredibly ridiculous it may be) and that's it. He does not make up stories or pretend to know things he doesn't know. In short, he doesn't lie. In contrast, HHG constantly acts like he has some kind of inside information that he *does not have*, he's always making comments about some developer or another making some type of "exclusive" that he "can't talk about right now, but keep watching" because he'll "share more later" - hell, he even does it in the pod-cast linked to this story (at about the 15 minute mark). 2) Sterling is a very talented writer, has an fantastic grasp of the English language, and is an entertaining read even when I find myself strongly disagreeing with him. HHG on the other hand has a poor grasp of English and as a result does a very poor job articulating his points (on the rare occasion he actually has a point). He comes across as extremely under-prepared in every video he does, as if he's just rambling incoherently. The bottom line here is that Jim Sterling is good at what he does - even those that disagree with him often recognize that. HHG is not.
You won't find this anywhere else. fixed I don't even dislike HHG that much. Despite his questionable practices he seems like he really is passionate about gaming. I just can't stand his constant butchering of the English language.
Did you even watch the video? Also who cares how he talks, there are many more out there who sound like Hyenas. Obvioudly you dont complain about how they talk right? Wana know why? Its because hes on videos. Accept him for who he is, just another human being.
BUNGIE will sue HHG watch lol
The PS3 is your Baby.True Talk you got to stop being so One Sided.At 40mill 360 sold RR and all you think the 360 ant [email protected]# and thats not so.Just because it has a Bluray dont mean its better just more Expensive and at 30 dollars for a Movie i think i can do with out that.Every time you open your mouth just remimber Crysis was done on a DVD and Nothing Sony Put Out can Match It YET.
And I dont agree or disagree with them but they say that Crysis graphics are okay. They also say everything else about the game is not good. I'm downloading it tonight so we'll see.
You do realise he doesnt downplay everything about the 360 because he isnt a fanboy like these guys here on N4G. Does he not show his appreciation for the developers of both console and talk good of their games? The problem with people who are well balanced in their veiws, will APPEAR to lean more towards (or away) one side based on how well or bad that side has progress. If there are no changes in any of the two (360 + PS3) sides then there will be no reason to have anything "bad" or "good" to say.
"No where else"?
What I got in my PM box from one of the local idiots. (HueyNewton2008) Your educated???? "Why the fk would care about what HHG is doing? If you were so relaxed you wouldnt be on N4G hating on people you dont even fking know. Get real man, ur prolly just some poor wounded vet that was dumb enough to join the military. STFU, go outside and make some friends or meet a female. Uncle Tom" UIncle Tom and a Hater "Your a hater bra!! and pathetic." (Here in the first message HueyNewton2008 was building up his courage) ^^^ Proof any idiot has access to the internet. You little kids need to grow up. I do not care about your opinion. If you dislike mine... then counter it with a logical educated statement and actual words used in the English language or ignore me. Do not send me messages which includes words you do not know the definition too. (Uncle Tom)- Apparently, I systematically hindered and betrayed my race by criticizing a terrible wanna-be journalists who is not knowledgeable of my hobby and pretends to know what he is talking about. As a loyal active consumer of video games whom invests considerably to them with my participation, political support, and time I deserve to receive the clear and precise reviews of games that have journalistic integrity behind them. Not made up reviews a child with crayons could form. So no little boy I am not an uncle tom, and yes my woman as fine. Yes I am a disabled vet and served my country proudly and honorably with INTEGRITY. Something you will obviously never accomplish. And to be an Avionics Technician in the Air Force for the F-22 raptor, Rq-1 predator drone, and F-16 requires a year of school before I ever arrived at my assigned base. They (Air Force) don't let stupid people be responsible for millions of dollars worth of the most advanced technology on the planet. I would be surprised if you could write your name correctly. You are pathetic and beneath me. Have fun high speed. I am and will remain better than you and the sad fact is you know it.
