Today's top 10 tweets from the gaming industry - 5/8/12
What did you miss about video games today? What were some of the gaming industry's most popular people tweeting about? I'll give you 10 tweets I found awesome, informative, weird, funny, stupid, or whatever, and then I'll give some commentary on it. Also, we've gotten a few submissions from fans that have been retweeted by developers, publishers, or other gaming journalists; so as long as I have one to put up, I'll include a fan submission too.
So, today I had Taco Tuesday at Tijuana Flats. Needless to say, I will be having soft serve poops the rest of the day. I'll suffer from a level 3 case of swampa*s. I'll hunker down on the toilet later for a poop of biblical proportions. Old Testament poop. Real wrath of God type stuff. Fire and brimstone coming down from the sky. Rivers and my butt boiling! 40 years of darkness, earthquakes, volcanoes! The dead rising from the grave. Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together — MASS HYSTERIA!
Now that we're done with that... wait... one more — Two tacos in the box, ready to go, the poops be fast and recovery slow!
Please, someone tell me they're getting these references.
No one. Leave those details to Joss Whedon. Let's not ruin the movie with second rate characters.
That's great. Now my Kinect will be able to tell me how pathetic and out of shape I am. Remember when the Xbox 360 used to be about gaming?
This isn't that big of a deal to me. Usually when I start a football game, I have enought time to finish. It's the games like MLB 12 The Show that I usually try to squeeze in a game that I use the in-game save feature.
That could either be a really great idea... or a really bad one.
Ugh. Here's the thing about that — I was supposed to have it sent to me to review. Game releases today and is it here yet? Nope. So yes, I might be picking it up myself, but then I might have to wait a bit for Diablo 3. Damn you tight bank account!
Eh, I get it, but... I'll ready a Budweiser and have The Patriot playin on my computer while I play Assassin's Creed III. I'll wear a Larry the Cable Guy sleeveless flannel shirt. And the whole time I'll be munchin' on Big Macs. 'MURRICA, F**K YEA!
Does this include the Vita? If so, it's just another reason to regret my purchase of the handheld. And why do PC gamers get no love from EA Sports? Do they think PC gamers hate football? Think of the huge online presence they could have, the mods that could be made, and the communities that could form through it.
This. Is. Awesome. Totally the way to support a multiplayer game. Bravo Starhawk. Bravo. Now get me my damn copy.
Oh. Okay. Well, the trailer does indeed make it look like a Dark/Demon's Souls spinoff. And I'm totally in favor of that. I even asked creator Hidetaka Miyazaki if a Vita version of Dark Souls could be in store for us, which you can read HERE.

That's enough internet for today.
