Best Riddlethos of 2010 – More Comments

Friday, January 21st, 2011

A long time ago, I researched some comments. I don’t remember the article that they’re from, so I can’t be as snazzy as Riddles, but here’s the 2 that I saved from that one period of research. Click to make bigger.

Proof of Hypocrisy

Right after last year’s awards, we went into Bayonetta Faceoff Week. But that was all Riddles’ gig, so all I did was talk about how awesome Darksiders was. It is awesome, but some of our readers who also have me on Facebook decided to call me out on something…

Yup, that sums it up pretty accurately.

Gibblet Swoops in Again

As shown in one of Riddles’ examples, long-time-reader and commenter DarthGibblet tends to join a conversation late to either throw a bit of a curve ball, or in this case, tie things together quite nicely and make me laugh.

Plus, it’s more mockery of Riddles.

That’s it for now. Still sick. More comments and awards to come! Best “Week” evar!

Best Riddlethos of 2010 – The Comments

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

This is something I’ve wanted to do since last year. We may not have a terribly diverse range of commenters here at Riddlethos, but what we lack in numbers, we make up for with devotion, and – dare I say it – class?

That is to say, there’s been some funny shit expressed through comments over 2010. Here’s a few examples.

Embarrassing Admssions – Scatter Storming #021

Since I picked this as one of the best Scatter Stormings of 2010, you may have already re-visited the hilarious line of discourse that takes place in the comments. If not, let me summarize: SiliconNoob suggests that perhaps Ethos can’t identify with Kratos because he doesn’t have breasts. (Referring to Kratos, not Ethan. I think.) After a few back-and-forth comments between the two of them, DarthGibblet enters the scene to offer his usual, highly intellectual take on the situation:

Now that’s just embarrassing now matter how you slice it. For both of them, really.

Dyslexia – “Games where the Sun Don’t Shine #2″

One of our favorite things to do here at Riddlethos is countdown lists. It’s a quick an easy solution to filling theme weeks with appropriate content, and it often leads to us writing some of our best stuff. Weird but true. Anyway, one of the pesky things about countdown weeks is that you have to count. Which sometimes leads to confusion. Like when I labeled this post 4 instead of 2. Ethos was quick not to fix, but instead point out my mistake:

Bah is right.

Epic Fail of the Senses – “I’m Back. Bitches”

After a month-long hiatus, I returned to Riddlethos will all the grace and gusto you’d expect. That is to say, I epic failed right out of the gate, with my inability to identify the object in my own post’s picture. SiliconNoob was quick to inform me, however, with a comment that surely wasn’t condescending in the least.

Thaat’s me!

These are sort of fun. I might do more of them. MAYBE. For now, I’m hungry. And apparently my three days off of work will now only be two, because I just got a call from the restaurant. Bloody hell, I had planned to do nothing but play Dead Space.

Anyway. Ethan’s in New York right now playing 3DS, the lucky bastard. According to his facebook, he’s played Ocarina of Time 3D and jizzed in his pants. Oh, and if you haven’t heard, the 3DS will cost $250, not $300, and it releases on March 27 in North America. The battery life still sucks though, as far as anyone knows. That’s about all I know, hopefully Ethan will come through with some impressions from the event. Eh?
