Gamespot Refugee Here.

I registered here on giantbomb when it first started up, but I sort of stopped using it much and just stayed on gamespot for my blogging needs. Gamespot has been deteoriating at a very rapid pace recently though, in regards to the user/blogger community. As a result I am going to try posting my blogs here too. Im hoping gamespot gets its shit together for the community features, but it's not looking as that is a priority anymore sadly.

I've been playing Vanquish on ps3 and Jesus rocket propelled Christ that game is awesome. I just love zooming around with the rocket boots in that game. It feels like such a different experience from the typical shooter. You have to dodge and zoom around like a lunatic to avoid all the missile and other crazy shit the evil Russian robots hurl at you. The game runs amazingly well too the frame rate never slows down even with all the robotic chaos going on. I think the main character of that game is going to get lung cancer though. Guy pops a cigarette into his mouth every 30 secs.

I also finally got Megaman 3 on the NES. I've wanted that a long time. I've managed to kill 2 bosses already. Snakeman (or was it serpent man?) and Topman. Feels so good when you beat a boss in that game and steal their powers. FUCK YOU SNAKEMAN AND TOPMAN!!!

I'm not a big fan of the slow paced cover based shooters, so Vanquish was perfect for me. Plus the story is so god damned stupid I couldn't help but love the game.

Oh yea, how do you edit the comment that appears below your avatar and username while in your profile? Cannot figure that out heh.

LIke I said, I haven't posted in Gamespot forums since November now. Once the unions died out, it lost much of it's purpose to me.

Typ something in that box with the big red "submit" button beside it. Then hit that button.

Welcome to your new home for your video game needs. =-)

I really dug Vanquish but man was that game stressful. It was just a constant state of rocket-skiing for your life, I couldn't play more than a couple checkpoints for session, which meant that ultimately a different game came out and usurped it before I finished, but I really do want to go back.

Welcome, duder!

Megaman 2 is the superior Megaman game, though :P

His status is now "gotten bored of here, find me on gamespot with the same username" That took long, didn't it?

Posted by GS_Dan

@NekuSakuraba: That's amazing.

Posted by NekuSakuraba
@GS_Dan To be fair, maybe it was like that from when he first left which is why he wanted to change it.

If you are still here OP, welcome!

Is this a mistype, or were you going for 'Good Luck Have Giant Bomb'? Or maybe 'Good Luck Have Game Bomb', just to shake things up? Works whichever way you like it, I guess.

Anyway, welcome OP duder, if you still look at this site.

@RPGee: I was going with the Good Luck Have Giant Bomb thingy.

@Claude: I approve.

*Pfff* Hahaha.

Dude gave a really good first impression.

Posted by lazyhoboguy

Yea I am already pretty impressed with the new stuff added here on giantbomb. Think I will be sticking around here now.

Heh well, I am really liking megaman 3, so megaman 2 must be amazing if its better than this. I will definitely be getting that eventually too.

That was my comment from years ago when I went back to gamespot. It's why I was now asking how do I change that comment because I couldn't remember how to change it.

I never liked the Gamespot community.

Posted by NekuSakuraba
@lazyhoboguy Alright, sorry. I thought it might've been but I wasn't sure.
Posted by AlexanderSheen

@lazyhoboguy: Sorry duder.

I still post at gamespot on rare occasion, but honestly that site is pretty much useless to me now.

Welcome to the site!

I'm just glad that the people I do bother about on GS have a Giantbomb account so I wont' exactly lose touch. I'm not very comfortable staying on GS with how things are going. :\

About Vanquish, I honestly thought I would enjoy the game until I tried the demo. I'm not sure but it just didn't click with me, which I really felt was kinda disappointing.

Wow that's cool man. Personally I felt like Vanquish had the same problem as inFamous - so much snappy movement that is just there for the sake of movement. I felt like it was more effective to just stay behind and pick enemies off. That is just judging from the demo, of course.

Giant Bomb-based greeting.

Yep, Gamespot is pretty irradiated already.

Posted by Duskwind

Welcome to GB. I didn't really care for the Vanquish demo. That boss fight was a little too difficult for my tastes.

Posted by lazyhoboguy

I never actually tried the demo so cannot really say if that is an accurate representation of the full game of vanquish. I can imagine the demo seeming harder than the real game since you wouldnt be as accustomed to the controls and game mechanics. The full game is challenging, but you get used to the controls and the game's difficulty isn't cheap or anything. It's all about how well you use your abilities.

@Grissefar Ive played both infamous and vaquish and dont think those games compare much. Infamous feels like you are a magnet to all surfaces which gets annoying because you cannot control sometimes which magnets, I mean buildings you land on. In vanquish the rocket boot things control extremely well. And yea you can just sort of sit on cover and pick off a few enemies sometimes in the game. But that usually only works for the weaker ones, and even the weaker ones will try charging your cover and flanking you. A lot of the bigger enemies have attacks that will hit you behind cover as well. So you have to use your rocket boot things a lot to get to new cover.

By the way, if I sounded sarcastic, it was not intended.

Posted by lazyhoboguy

@Fattony12000: Seems like it would have been pretty fun to watch and make fun of e3 with the other giantbomb dudes, or duders. I've noticed that you giantbomb folk say duders a lot. Is it gianbomb's official replacement for the word dude or something heh.

Posted by Winternet

@lazyhoboguy: Duder is the only way to say it, as far as I'm concerned.

Posted by Fattony12000

@AlexanderSheen: I was being hyper sarcastic too lol.

Posted by TheHumanDove

Alright first things first. You aren't allowed to like Patrick, or guests. You're allowed to have a rabid fascination with one (two maximum) of the giant bomb crew, but only if you mock Alex, because "that's a thing now". You have to say Duder, not dude, and you should always start a thread with "Am I the only one-"

Welcome

What's Gamespot? Is it shiny? Do they have pie?

Posted by lazyhoboguy

@Dexter_Morgan_: It is far from shiny and there is an inexcusable lack of pie. Since you are Dexter Morgan and this news probably will upset you, I hope gamespot people don't start mysteriously disappearing one by one now haha.

When home is where the heart is, where do you go when you don't have a heart? Gamespot.

I see sheets of plastic in their future.
