D Bags Weekly 9/15/12 – On Contests, Bagging, and Botany

  What did we learn this week? We learned that you should never send a stripper to do a prostitute’s job. Corporate espionage is so complicated! We learned that G4 probably could’ve been a lot better if the people in charge had any clue about gaming and nerd culture. It’s not like any of the people arrested on the channel’s endless Cops marathons understood the intricacies of a proper Zerg rush. We learned that video games aren’t like people: you can’t just put a paper bag over their heads and enjoy the rest of them. Even going Chinese-food-style by putting a plastic bag over the top of the paper one and stapling it shut won’t help. Ugly games are bad. We learned that depressed sports fans can take refuge in franchise mode. Someone please alert Red Sox ownership that my years of sports gaming triumphs...

The recently announced Humble Indie Bundle V includes some pretty awesome games: Amnesia: The Dark Decent, Limbo, Psychonauts, Bastion, and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP. A new added twist has some gamers a little angry: this time around, to get Steam keys for your games you need to pay an additional dollar. Since this news has come about gamers have been very upset. xXDeathMarauderXx1923 said the following upon hearing the news. This is getting insane! We gamers don’t deserve this. The Humble Indie Bundle is about us getting games cheap, for whatever price we want. I was going to pay a dollar to get the games, now I have to pay two? I am sick and tired of game companies pulling this kind of shit, first it was the Mass Effect ending, then Diablo 3, and now this? Game companies are going too far, I...

The Lord of Terror Feasts on Your Tears

I am not going to tell you that you can’t dislike something in a game. I am also not going to tell you that you can’t complain about it. What I am going to tell you is that your complaints are completely invalidated when you continue to give the companies you complain about your money. Last week’s biggest PC release was unquestionably Diablo 3. Like every major release lately, it started certain gamers’ tears flowing–and with Diablo 3, they’re flowing hard. Diablo 3 is not a perfect game, but it also isn’t Diablo 2. It never will be, and for those looking for Diablo 2, I recommend playing a game called Diablo 2. I think what bothers me the most about the Diablo 3 fallout is that I am not sure the game ever had a chance. People were salivating, not to play the game,...

Fantasy Starcraft Draft Results

With the NFL Draft last weekend, my friend Ryan and I decided it would be fun to draft professional Starcraft playerers. The rules are as follows: Each of us selects 5 players. One must be a non-Korean player. Only one can be a Brood War player who is transitioning this year. As I do with all drafts, I gave away the first pick. Team Ryan – Pick 1 Marine King Prime 1. He is Terran. 2. He is adorable. Team Phegan – Pick 1 MVP.DongRueGu Not only has he surpassed NesTea as the best Zerg player in the world, but he’s arguably the best player in the world–right up there with your pick of MKP. I am sure we will see many epic matches between those two in the years to come, so it is only fitting that I select him next. Team Ryan –...

Downloadable Content: Video Gaming’s Pandora’s Box

Seems like nowadays you can’t get away from downloadable content in the video gaming world. “Buy this product now and brag to you friends that you spent money for a different skin for your character!” “That new game that just dropped last week? Well guess what, there’s 27 more chapters for you to buy and download, adding a whopping 346 hours to the game and 15 new (but still as shitty as the last 5) game modes!” “Want a pink gun that’ll make you stick out like a sore thumb so all the 13 year olds turn you into a walking head shot? Two dollars and it’s yours!!!” I can see your reactions now.  Half of you are pissing yourselves over the prospect of deeper gameplay and such and the rest are telling me to shut the hell up and die off like Betamax.  Before...

What Your Choice of Team in MLB 12: The Show Says About You

Atlanta Braves – You are consistently well above-average and a bit boring. Arizona Diamondbacks – You’re as overrated as they come.  If you lived anywhere else you wouldn’t be able to find a job. Baltimore Orioles – You’re still holding on to that time ten years ago you when you got laid every day for an entire month.  You really like orange and losing. Boston Red Sox – Your best is never good enough for anyone.  A green muppet lives in one of the walls of your home. Cleveland Indians – You are not bothered by overtly racist caricatures.  You could be described as “part project, part donkey.” Chicago Cubs – A hopeless romantic, you got sucked in by the game’s marketing campaign.  You purchased WWE 12 just so you could create-a-wrestler Steve Bartman and beat the hell out of him with Chicago’s own C.M....

Leaked Details of the Mass Effect 3 DLC

Remember that time a group of fans angry with Bioware about Mass Effect 3’s ending tried to make a point by sending the company 402 cupcakes?  I may or may not have been the clandestine mastermind behind that effort.  And I may or may not have hidden extremely high-tech listening devices in those cupcakes that may or may not have recorded details of the forthcoming DLC intended to address many fans’ concerns with the game’s conclusion.  I also may or may not have very intricate inside information regarding a bake sale soon to be hosted by the youth center to which Bioware donated the cupcakes. Regardless, I may or may not know a lot of interesting things about the next batch of Mass Effect content.  And I’m in a sharing mood.  Spoilers ahoy! The first change players will find involves the AI that presents Shepard...

Am I the Only One Who Had No Clue How To Pronounce Street Fighter X Tekken?

Seriously.  For the last few months I’ve been reading the game’s title as Street Fighter “EX” Tekken.  That’s the letter X, right?  All of the other possibilities seemed pretty stupid to me: Street Fighter “Times” Tekken.  It’s a well-known fact that Guile times Asuka equals Cammy.  Wait, no it isn’t. Street Fighter “Dig for Treasure Here” Tekken.  Avast, me hearties, X marks the spot for booty!  Shiver me timbers, lower the cloth, and set sail for Shadalou! Street Fighter “Ten” Tekken.  That just sounds like a mistake.  There might be a terrible joke in Street Fighter VIII Tekken, but the old 1-0 doesn’t quite work. Street Fighter “By” Tekken.  Perhaps a new cut of lumber sturdier than a 2 x 4.  Perhaps the only way to correctly measure Chun-Li’s thighs. Street Fighter “Extension” Tekken.  Dial Heihachi for a good time! Street Fighter “Strike” Tekken.  Possible...
