The Dark Souls series is one of the best from this or last generation, and I don’t think anyone would be angry if went on a never ending Final Fantasy style release path with more sequels than you can possibly keep track of. Oh, but speaking of angry, yes, you will get angry playing Dark Souls 2; I’m probably the calmest, most patient person you’ll ever meet, but when you have to start all the way over from the freaking beginning after yet another stupid little mistake, controllers will break and profanities will be articulately shouted. But the reward for success? That’s what makes this series so legendary, and what makes the review below so hilarious for those who have endured the highs and many, many lows!
If you enjoyed the recent Duke Nukem Forever review we posted earlier this month, then wait until you read this hilarious one for Watch Dogs, which is the brand new open world action game that just everybody in the gaming industry is talking about. Hit the link below for the full review – you’ll be glad you did!
We’ve all played crappy video games at one point or another in our lives, and hopefully we didn’t lose too much money – not just by the game itself, but via broken controllers, etc – in the painful process. Duke Nukem Forever, released in 2011 and took only 15 years to make, promised to be the long-awaited sequel that Nukem fans had been craving for since Duke Nukem 3D became the “it” game in 1996. While I never played Duke Nukem Forever, I did play its predecessor, and I remember really enjoying it – especially the hilarious one-liners that you really couldn’t find in any other game or genre at the time. In the spirit of humorous one-liners then, it is appropriate that we feature arguably the funniest Duke Nukem Forever review that has graced the Internet, as this is short, not-so-sweet and directly to the damning point. Hit the link below and enjoy.
Memes never get old, especially when they’re really good. To be in the upper echelon of funny memes, it all starts with the original background photo. Sure your captions may be stellar, but you won’t win your audience over unless it really fits well with the background photo. That being said, the funny gaming meme creation crew around the Internet has been hard at work at pumping out some hilarious ones since yesterday’s “Xbox Reveal Day“, which honestly has created more confusion than there was before. Although most gaming meme creators have aimed in on the “always-online” Internet connection “feature”, one photochopper decided to spin the reveal in an old-school way that probably only those of us that grew up on the NES would really appreciate. Hit the link below to see what I mean.
Every time I hear the word “logic”, I think back to my freshman year in college when I experienced my first and only logic course. Going in I figured it would be simple; I mean really, how hard could Logic 105 be? Well, let’s just say it was not easy; I barely registered a C in the course, and of course my parents were thrilled. Video games logic on the other hand is something I think we can all understand, at least more than “A -> B : D”; the funny pic / stellar gaming e-card will register with all of our gamers out there in SQ Nation. On a side note, it’s pretty amazing to see just how far the “someecards.com” site has come. I remember back in 2008 while I was at the Marine Corps’ “The Basic School”, one of my roommates introduced me to it, and thought it was a really good idea. Now these crazy e-cards are all you see on Facebook, but I digress. Hit the link below for some video game logic!
I’m not a fan of gamer stereotypes, although they can seriously make me laugh when they’re in good fun. Probably the biggest gamer stereotype of them all is that gamers are virgins, or that they never have actual girlfriends. Many would label the gamer community as anti-social, or socially awkward folks that never leave their parents basements; one of our all-time favorite movies portrayed this hilariously well (Grandma’s Boy!), and I’d like to point out that could not be further from the truth. At least in our case here at SQ. Regardless, I don’t feel like jumping on the gamer stereotype soap box, because the outstanding funny picture below is just too funny and doesn’t help my argument.

Oh this one takes me back. Although my internal clock will turn 30 years of age in just a couple short weeks, I am still proud enough to admit (on the Internet OR in real life) that video games are still a passion of mine. While I do not have as much free time to crank through game after game on a Saturday, I do get in as much game time as I can. So what does this have to do with the hilarious Fry from Futurama? Well, you see, we have a thing for Photochops and memes around these parts; for those of you lucky enough to have experienced our former website, you probably saw some of our best work. While the image below isn’t our creation, it’s a high quality gaming meme that all of our retro gaming readers will surely appreciate. It brought me back to the NES days, although I am still trying to remember which games I experienced this in. Hit the link to reminisce with us!
This question will make our gamers out there in SQ Nation chuckle out loud; I know I did. There are just too many things that come to mind that you could argue. Profanity? The lack of maturity? Camping? “Your mom” jokes? Lag? I think I could come up with 100 different things that blow orifices about online gaming, and I think you could too. Although I mostly reach for the single player venues currently, via Demon’s Souls and Diablo 3, I do jump into the StarCraft 2 arena pretty frequently, although I’m still learning. Gone are the days when I used to destroy people online in Red Alert, and don’t even get me started about Goldeneye. Hit the link below for a hilarious take on one gamer’s position on what the worst aspect about online gaming is. I think most of us will be able to relate!
