SYSTEM WARS AWARDS 2010, and some other stuffola.

EDIT : This year was a travesty riddled with deleted votes, early locking of the thread, clear alt. accounts of users voting twice, and some other shenanigans involving some Guufs.

--------

Hey, it's been a whole year-ish! WOWZERS! I just love all of you guys (well most, lol), and wanted to let you know that the System Wars Awards are BACK! I haven't made a blog in about a year, because well, just because. ;) This Blog may be the first of many more if I can snap out of my funk.

BTW, This was found by my buddy 3sFan and Killerfist back in 2009.

In other news, I just Hit 106,000 GAMERSCORE thanks to Halo Reach, which I am currently sitting at 800+ Gamerscore for that game. I would play the SP more to finish it off, but the MultiPlaya is the only thing I really care to play. :( :) I also recently got my 47th Platinum, and just hit a TROPHY MILESTONE, 3000 TROPHIES! :shock: I don't ever want to get another Trophy again, 3000 seems awesome! :P

Here is a Dual 360 Xbox Live Gamertag and PS3 Tag I've been using since the end of last month :

What's UP! :P

Here is just a PSN ID (Upper Right hand corner, 3000 Trophies!):

Here is my Xbox Gamertag with Gamerscore (106,000+ THOUSAND, that's right, 100K!) :



That's not to say that I've neglected my fave movies and TV shows, as I'm watching way too many right now. Don't worry, I still play any Wii or my handhelds. I'm still waiting for Kirby and Donkey Kong on Wii after all. :P C'mon, I got to play with my lady too, right?

Shout out to Don't Believe the HYPE, you guys have been incredible! :o Anyone ever interested in Joining HYPE, PM me or one of the other officers. You may not get in, but we will take it seriously...it's a very interesting screening process on our end.

Those of my friends not in H.Y.P.E. you guys rock as well. It's been a very interesting year for me on Gamespot.com, as I learned so much about so many people. Some great, some good, and some bad. :(

Anyways, here's the LINK to the SYSTEM WARS AWARDS2010. Last Year I won KING of SYSTEM WARS, HERO OF SYSTEM WARS, and Hippy Manticore of System Wars. Unfortunately, they got rid of the Hero category this year, so I will be the LAST HERO of SW ever, but you can still vote for WHOEVER you want as KING or QUEEN (Your choice, lol). Feel free to vote in other categories like master of lulz, debater, writer, hippy manticore, etc. :P Honestly, it's in fun, and I happen to think some odd juju and perhaps curses come with the territory, lol.

I was thinking about compiling some links to SolidTy's greatest hits on SW this year 2010 (New idea, lolz), so Here 's a few... (Some really funny stuff was deleted off or moved, so I can't show folks anymore. I had some funny Alan Wake, COD, Activision, Guitar Hero, and Scrooge McDuck posts / jokes, that are not available as they have been hidden or whatever GS does. :( I would dig up more, but I'm tired, and some are missing...:( )

These links are 20 posts per page :

1.)SolidTy's Kinect River Rafting Idea!(Kinect SW thread that goes wild, scroll to the last part even, Funny! :lol: )

2.)Hairdryer to 360 slim accusation? Say it ain't so! (I had a lot of fun with this one(VERY Hilarious, it's worth a click, I promise)and the SW user with the Slim became a popular internet user for a few weeks. :shock:

I would have posted more links, but truthfully I'm very tired and it's hard to remember all of them. Heck, some links that I remembered and looked up, it turns out the entire thread is hidden on some other Gamespot.com board. :? I didn't want to use funny moments from other years, only 2010, making the search harder, but enjoy all the same.

I have so many of you as friends, and for those of you not on my friendslist, it's not personal. Blame 360 and PS3 for limiting how many friends I can have on their consoles. :cry:If you guys want to play some Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 (360 or PS3), Castlevania HD (360), Halo Reach (360), Uncharted 2 (PS3), Super Street Fighter 2 HD Remix (360 or PS3), Super Street Fighter 4 (PS3), or other games, let me know. :P


As you can imagine, if you are on myGS friendslist, you are reading this. NO Outsiders are allowed to see this blog, so that means I like you...a lot, like a lot, a lot, jen-ny. :D:P

Uhm...yeah, that's about it. 8)

Now, here is a word with some VERY Famous sponsors 8)...

System Wars 2009 Awards Breakdown/Acknowledgement Blog from King Ty the Hero!

Hey, it's KingTy, SolidTy the Hero, and I just wanted to pass some accolades around for the SW Awards (Let's hope I fare better than the last King, who was Banned. I call it the KING KURSE :shock: ).

THE EDITOR AWARDS:

Best Overall Editor: Kevin Van Ord
(Congrats!)

Game Awards:

GOTY prediction: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (I can't wait to play this. I got a sealed copy, I plan on opening tomorrow. I was involved with three Beta's for U2, and I can vouch they are a blast. The SP is what I really want to sink my teeth into, as I got Beat Uncharted 1 4 times just to get a PLatinum :P)

System which *won* 2008/2009(so far): Playstation 3 ( Since early 2008's AAAA MGS4, Sony's PS3 has been cranking with AAA LBP, AAA Resistance 2. The train didn't slow down with this years AAA MLB09:The Show, AAA Killzone 2, AAA InFamous, AAA Demon's Souls, and AAA Uncharted 2. I think the PS3 $299 Slim is what really sealed the deal for many folks, including Gamespot. Great year for all machines, but great momentum for PS3 this year.)

Biggest flop: Halo Wars (I had it reserved, I bought it. It's still fun, but it's not wonderful. Many reviewers seemd to equate this game as the game that was going to make RTS big for consoles, like HaloCE did for FPS. That was wrong, in retrospect. Still, I own it, and it's a decent game. Still, a 6.5 is what Halo Wars got from GS. Also, the team that made it are no more. :( )

Biggest surprise hit: Demon's Souls (It got a 9 from GS! Surprised me, as it's hard and niche, but congrats on that game. It's a Sony 1st Party game in Japan, made by Sony and From Software. However, Sony didn't think it would ever sell out here, so ATLUS brought it over to the States. Pretty neat story, now we wait and see if Sony was right about the sales. Sony made a game last gen on PS2 called SkyGunner, that they allowed Atlus to bring over as well. It would be nice to see this game get the sales it seems to deserve.)

Most overdone thread topic: Forza 2 vs Gran Turismo 5 (Way too much of these silly threads. ALso, it's a typo, it was FORZA 3 vs. GT5, not Forza 2. :))

Platform AHippywards:

The 'I'm a PC' award for System Wars' PC aficionado: Adrian Werner (I haven't seen him post in FOREVER, but congrats!)

General Xbox McRedrings - award for System Wars' Xbox 360 aficionado: WilliamRLBaker (WilliamRLBaker, he won.)

King Wii of Nintendopia - award for System Wars' Wii aficionado: Willy105 (Long Time Sheep and still making fun threads. Creator of Retro Wars and SW Monthly.)

Admiral of the Royal Sony Defense Force - award for System Wars' PS3 aficionado: jakehouston88 (He campaigned and it paid off. Good job Mr. Jake.)

The Hippy award - award for a genuine manticore, if such a thing exists: SolidTY, Subrosian (Nice to see someone else get some awards this year, last year it was the Subby Awards practically. I'm in good company then. ;) )

See you next year!

-------------------------------

Well, that's pretty awesome stuff right there.8)

Congrats to all, and I will do my best as both King and Hero. You guys have made me very Happy!

----------

Note to future self : Since I'm blogging, this is a reference to myself for myself, but as of OCT 2009 I am at :

1478 Trophies with 21 Platinums, and 97,622 Gamerscore.

Update : I was mentioned in Today on the SPOT! 10-22-2009 24:10 is right before the mention for this blog!

The SYSTEM WARS AWARDS 2009!

Well, it's that time again this year, the ANNUAL SYSTEM WARS AWARDS 2009!8)

THERE ARE ONLY THREE FULL DAYS LEFT! :shock: :o

If you are a LEVEL 6 GameSpot User, and you've visit System Wars from time to time, go rock your VOTE!:P

COME TO THIS THREAD CLICKITY CLICK FOR THE LINK! :P

Whatever you vote, just remember to have fun, it's all virtual fun.:)

I myself am up for a few categories, so if you feel the need to vote SOLID, I wouldn't mind.:lol:


This is SolidTy, Signing Off.:)

Quoted For Truth,QFT,Revisiting an Unlikely Internet MEME,that I gave the world!

If you go back through my blogs, you can see that while I created Quoted for Truth sometime in 2005ish, I blogged in in early 2006 as I noticed users here at Gamespot started using it. I never imagined it would spread all over the net!

Check out my very first BLOG to this site, it's crazy. :)

This was years before Gerstman Gate, and all.


Had I known I created a popular MEME, I would have documented it sooner, but luckily my VERY FIRST BLOG did document it after I noticed others were using the phrase QUoted for Truth or QFT. I felt I should blog it back then, and I'm glad I did!

I guess you never know what you say will actually catch on, How was I to know?


Funny thing is I NEVER expected this to become a popular MEME. It's pretty awesome. It's all in good fun.

I'm just so surprised! It hit me a few days ago when someone I knew was talkinga bout Internet MEMES, and I realized, I actually contributed one!

Overall, it's not a big deal, just something I know I did, and is kinda cool to me, that's what Blogs are for, right?

The above sentence is QUOTED FOR TRUTH!

Michael Joseph Jackson(MJ),KING OF POP,has left us.:( 6-25- 09. GAMES HE WAS IN!

Goodbye MJ, you will be missed. What's to miss about MJ. His Music Contributions. His Donations to Charity.

HE was the KING OF POP, and for good reason.

I think this is tragic, just a few days ago, I found out Jackson was going on tour, and I asked myself if he was still able to do it, physically. He was a perfectionist, and competitive, and would push himself hard. I guess it was true. Jackson would have been 51 next month.

As far as the child abuse with that Jordan Chandler kid in the 90's stuff goes, I'm one of those silly people that still believe in "Innocent until Proven Guilty", and that Chandler Case was closed. Maybe Jackson did it and got away with it, or maybe he didn't. I'm not going to assume the worst. I do know that Wacko Jacko stories sold papers, and anything to tarnish a celeb in general is gossip that people will pay for.

I wasn't a huge MJ fan, but I find this to be sad.

HIs game Contributions Should be noted since we are here at GAMESPOT.

MoonWalker the Game, (Arcades, MasterSystem, and Genesis)

GTA: Vice City (PS2, PC, Xbox)"You wanna be Startin' Something" and "Beat It" on the soundtrack.

Ready To Rumble 2 (PS2/Dreamcast)

Space Channel 5 (PS2/Dreamcast)

SingStar - MJ songs Available

That's all I can think of for now...


I remember so many of his songs :

=======================

I have had a few deaths in my family, but It's been awhile. However, The King Of Pop's Death really affeected me. You see, I grew up listening to all sorts of great music, and if you listen to great music, you couldn't have missed MJ's stuff. Im' not really talking about the MAN himself or putting him on a pedastal.

I'm talking about his musical legacy, and knowing that any new works of his will be lost forever.

Just to Jog some Memories for you guys (Click to See Vids to hear songs in question):

BEN (MJ as a Kid!)

THRILLER (#1 Selling Album in the WORLD!)

Man in the Mirror

Rockin Robin (MJ in the Jackson 5)

Earth Song

Don't Stop till you get Enough

The Way You Make Me Feel (He even did this with Britney Spears, Ask if you want to see that version)

Rock With You

Black or White

Scream (With his Sister Janet!)

BAD! (Wierd Al even has a hilarious Parody of this!)

Smooth Criminal (Yes, Alien Ant Farm remade this great tune)

BILLIE JEAN (One of the great Songs Evah!)

BEAT IT

You are Not Alone (You may know this due to Disney)

I just can't stop loving you

P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)

Wanna Be Startin Something

Dirty Diana (One of my Favorites, Guitar's written by Legendary Billy Idol Guitarist, in Video though it's SLASH!!! )

You Rock My World (HD)

One More Chance

Say Say Say (With the Beatles Legend PAUL McCARTNEY!)

The Girl is Mine (Again with Paul McCARTNEY, dang.)

Remember, MJ also starred in The Simpsons Season 3, as a Bricklayer White Mental Patient, Cla.ssic Episode, and he wrote : Lisa It's Your Birthday, Happy Birthday Lisa!

He also gave many artists breaks with their #1 hits, like Rockwell's : Somebody's Watching Me (MJ's only part is "I always feel like, Somebody's Watching Meee!")





Truly, I went back and have listened to about 30 of his songs over and over, and I even have had quite a few conversation's with pals about it at Denny's and such.

Peace and Love, Fellow Gamers!

=======================

Goodbye Moonwalk. Good bye MJ. :(


How many Platinums do you have? What is your Gamerscore?

I was talking to a fellow Well Respect Gamer (Jeff Gordan fan) and I realized that not many get the full use out of their games.


What is the Average Gamerscore you get before moving on to the next game? I have one friend that tends to get around 50-200 points per game, and another that shoots for 500-800.

How many trophies/percentage do you hit before you feel you've completed the game?


I just got my 12th Platinum (In "Eat Lead") and after I platinum Infamous this month (Hopefully) I can go back to just kickin' back and playing some random Wii games or my DS/PSP's.

BTW : Eat Lead was very funny, the game mechanics were decent, nothing mindblowing, but the game is hilarious. If you are a gamer that liked Giants:Citizen Kabuto or Bard's Tale due to humor, do your self a favor and at least rent Eat Lead.

Katamari, Noby Noby Boy...How crazy do you have to be to make these games?

Designing games is hard work to be sure, but a lot of you don't know that most artists (From painting to music), have to juggle that hard work with their genius and their crazy.

Here, read these quotes from the man (Keita Takahashi) who gave the entire gaming world KATAMARI and NOBY NOBY BOY :

http://kotaku.com/5185884/katamari-creator-denies-drug-use--other-choice-quotes

Also, here is a neat fact, NOBY NOBY BOY was going to be XBLA, But due to the awkward Analog placement, Takahashi said NO! Check it out, this guy is giving the world some fun reading, but I don't want him to stop making games!

http://kotaku.com/5185939/the-real-reason-noby-noby-boy-is-on-the-ps3


Read ahead to laugh, I love this stuff. :P
