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...

Episode 108 – Does John Look Like an Arborist?

We could only top episode 107 by having a full house. We could have played basketball with all 5 of us together. We decided to talk about games and have fun instead.

Episode 102 – Diablo 3 Supports Terrorism

This week we get a little philosophical and re examine criminology 101. We discuss cheating and stealing in video games. Koz kinda has an offensive game? Scott gets all giggly about Persona 5 and McAnus is his typical mush mouthed self.

D Bags Weekly – 5/19/12

Stop playing Diablo for a little while and read this stuff.  Blizzard’s servers will thank you.  Oh, and Max Payne’s kind of lonely so someone should go play with him for a little while.  Seriously guys he’s almost out of pills and he’s threatening to buy a Katy Perry wig because no one cared that he shaved his head. Give the Vita a Chance – I only wrote this article because I bought a Vita and I want everyone else to buy one so my investment is not wasted.  And it’s a pretty cool device. Diablo III: A n00b’s Perspective – Getting into an new IP with a rich history is a daunting task indeed.  Like taking a solid shit after eating at Chipotle. Diablo III Launch Kit – Everything you need to know about your one-way trip to carpal tunnel syndrome. The Witcher 2,...

D Bags Weekly – 5/12/12

The day before Mother’s Day.  Get your gaming in now, ladies and gentlemen; it probably ain’t happening tomorrow, and if it does you’ll have to let your mother win.  While you’re at it, check out the week that was at D Pad D Bags.  If your mother asks, that’s short for Directional Pad Duffle Bags.  The last thing you need is a stern lecture about why you shouldn’t frequent websites named for feminine hygiene products. Six Games I Overrate – A few games I’ve enjoyed more than I probably should have.  Kinectimals is not on this list. Stories Without Words (Featuring I Wish I Were the Moon) – Personally, I wish I were Uranus.  Amy Conchie makes her debut with a thoughtful, literary-minded look at narratives in gaming.  Someone has to balance out all the poop jokes with something smart. The New Star Wars Games...

D Bags Weekly – 4/21

This Earth Day, save electricity by turning off your consoles and reading print outs of all our articles by candlelight.  The planet–and all the annoying hipsters collecting money for Green Peace–will thank you. What Your Choice of Team in MLB 12: The Show Says About You: A lot, actually.  I have it on good authority that numerous psychologists are adopting this list as a means of better diagnosing their patients.  Mets fan?  Inferiority complex.  Braves fan?  You’re just boring; don’t bother scheduling future sessions.  Red Sox fan?  Oh Sweet Jesus, get the straight jacket and enough valium to knock out a horse! Podcast Episode 86 – Live from PAX East: Recorded just outside the ladies room in which Morgan Webb undoubtedly dropped a deuce as big and annoying as Adam Sessler.  Don’t mind all of the raucous D Pad D Bag fans you can hear...

My First PAX

Getting There My trip to PAX involved a twenty minute ride traversing about half of the MBTA’s Red Line.  It was unusually busy for 9 am on a Saturday morning, packed with an eclectic mix of nerds and those people in Boston Marathon jackets who infest the city this time every year.  I couldn’t help smiling at the confused older couple sandwiched between a crew of PAX nerds in Pokemon shirts and a kid painted gray who’d strapped giant horns to his head.  There was a fun buzz on the T you don’t feel during the dour weekday commute; it was a sense of anticipation and barely-concealed excitement, of a crowd anxiously looking forward to reaching its destination.  It was infectious, and it raised my spirits in spite of my usual hatred of being up before ten o’clock in the morning. Getting In My biggest...

Top 10 Posts of 2011

It’s that time of year again. Another year of video game douchebaggery, and we have another collection of 10 posts that performed well over the course of the year. This list is purely based on traffic, no other things were taken into consideration, like social media, comments, or any sort of subjective opinion. 2011 was a very successful year for us here at D Pad D Bags, we got our podcast up to 72 episodes, we added a new writer to the blog(YachtCaptianColby), started broadcasting our podcast and gaming content via TwitchTV, and we were nominated for a Most Valuable Blogger award. In 2012, we are looking to grow more, add more writers, produce more content, continue our podcast and entertain you as we find possible. Now on to the list! 10. It’s Not the Size of the Weapon That Counts but the Fury of...
