[Each week, our goal is to scour our news posts, Gamer Limit blogs, and our forums looking for topics that make us laugh, sit in shock, or just sit in confusion making us ask the question: WTF?  The top three stories from the Gamer Limiters who make us evoke those reactions will be featured in our brand new editorial called Three Jeers of the Week. So c'mon Limiters, if you find something interesting, let us know about it.  You could be the feature for everyone to see.]

To pick-up right where we left off last week, I have searched Gamer Limit looking for the most shameful posts, and, let me tell you, I struck gold.  If you dare to look at the filth underneath the video game industry’s glitz and glamor, I’m sure you’ll be just as appalled or laughing hysterically as I was.  Either way, read on for the dirty truth.

1 Jeer – The World’s Catchiest Video Game Theme

This week’s first jeer goes to Michael Carusi, who can’t seem to write a philosophical essay about Socrates because the theme song to Battlefield Heroes is stuck in his brain.  Thus, he had to share it with the rest of us, and now I’m perpetuating the cycle by promoting it as well.

Socrates said it best, “I was afraid that by observing objects with my eyes and trying to comprehend them with each of my other senses I might blind my soul altogether.”  Thank you EA for delivering one of the most addictive tunes ever.

Check out Carusi’s Red Mage Gaming blog for other great finds.

2 Jeers – Real Kanojo (Real Girlfriend)

The real world can sometimes be a solitary place for us gamers, and we all need a bit of lovin’ from time to time.  Real Girlfriend has exploited the kink in our armor and managed to create an ideal, artificial, virtual girlfriend whom we can exploit as well.  As insulting as it may seem, there’s just something so alluring about a product like this.

3 Jeers – Popular video game writer arrested

Science fiction writer Peter Watts of Homeworld and Crysis has been arrested by US authorities for allegedly assaulting an officer.  When are Canadians going to learn that United States police officers are real badasses, unlike happy-go-friendly Canadian cops?

You have to admit it though, when knowing nothing about the gaming industry, having documents and scripts that read out like the next terrorist attack coupled with an alien invasion has to sound a bit obscure.  Shame on the mix up for putting you in that situation; hopefully everything works itself out.  Cheers!

  1. Well isn’t that just the most advanced jiggle physics conceived yet.

    Both devices are going to be asomwe. The pre-order count for 3DS is massive and I’m sure Nintendo won’t let people down with game selection and fun factor. The NGP will be very impressive as well and feature great high-end gaming titles and a selection of cool multimedia features. Ever since the next generation consoles (360, PS3 and Wii) hit the market, it has been a clear cut choice between them. 360 gives a great social/online hardcore gaming experience, PS3 provides hardcore games and a multimedia device and the Wii hits home as an interactive, family fun gaming system. Theres a console for every gamer.The 3Ds will be a fun family based (casual) system with 3D-like graphics. The NGP will mesh the best portable graphics we’ve seen with more hardcore gaming titles. The 3Ds will be more affordable for it’s target customer, while the NGP will serve as a link to your PS3 to create a portable multimedia center.The 3Ds and the NGP are two completely different systems, the only similar aspect is that they’re portable and capable of playing games. The real truth is, everyone wins with the devices as there is a portable system for everyone. I’m glad Nintendo targets the casual market, and Sony the serious. You could always buy the 3DS and then save up until the NGP comes out and buy it too.
