A Bit Too Far

He's not making a face here...

He's not making a face here...

Now I’m well aware that a big part of Riddlethos in general is the back-and-forth bickering between me and Riddles. I wrote the “Why Riddles Sucks” Sunday Soapbox in good fun, so it makes sense that Riddles should retaliate. However, at least some of my article was based in fact. While maybe very few people here care about Pokémon, at least I contributed consistent and relevant content throughout the week. Riddles – at best – starts strong then fizzles out, and that’s way better than he did during God of War III Week in which I provided the most relevant content in a timely manner to which he responds in a jealous rage trying to cover up the fact that I had a day one review of the game.

Oh, and he claims that he wrote two full HLLs last week? Good for him! He finally fulfilled the standard again for the first time in weeks and weeks. Hell, maybe Scatter Storming is stupid, but I’ve only missed one week, and I gave notice. I’ve written Hey! Look! Listen! for him on a number of occasions, and they were some of the best ones in existence.

See, here’s the secret, Riddles’ only claim to fame on this site is that he’s the “professional” one. But who is more consistent? Who has got the insider media and early reviews and previews? Me. Ethos. Methos. The “three” reviews he bragged about last week? One he had already written years ago, the other was literally a paraphrased version of a review I wrote for RPGamer.com (look it up), and the third was a carbon copy of my God of War III review, but with a higher score. Just like he gave Bioshock 2 a bloody EIGHT POINT FIVE! I’m sorry, but that game is the churned-out, personality-less action-fest that he feared it would be except it has a shittier ending than anybody expected. It also looks like garbage, which Riddles refuses to admit. But he didn’t want to sully his beloved franchise, so he hiked up the score because now you can DUAL-WIELD! OOoOOoo!

Now I realize that nothing is fully objective, but Riddles could at least make an attempt especially when he claims to be the professional one, but I’ve already uncovered that bullshit.

Yeah, you quit your job, but pull yourself together. I’m the girl, remember?

See, I can take things too far too, asshole.

Welcome to Ethos Presents: Pokémon Silver Madness Extraordinaire Week!

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

Told you! I love this site, and I’m reviving it. Casting Raise and then Curasa. Wrong series though, I should rather say that I’m taking this site to the Pokémon Centre! It’s never been a secret that I love this stupid series, but I’m not holding back this week. I have Pokémon SoulSilver and I’ve purposefully held back so that I could let it all out if I had the chance. Lazy Riddles has definitely given me that chance. This is my week, and my site. Suck it, Montok!
