Article Overheard on Xbox: Issue #38

So today I was playing matchmade Living Dead on Reach. Someone pipes up in the lobby with a voice that sounds like a 12 year old girl speaking gibberish. As it turns out, it was a British kid who was 4. We all ripped on him saying he was too young to play Halo and that he should get off of his brother's Xbox. The match starts, he kills half of the zombies, and was the last man standing every round. He shut us up real fast.-John
Me, post-game lobby in Halo Reach after getting a triple kill with the sword:"Why did you guys just line up for me to kill you like that?"Other team member: "It's an old French tactic."-Rory
One night my friend and I were playing Black Ops Nazi Zombies, we didn't have enough people to start a private match so we searched for people to play with online. We were both in a party so we couldn't hear the two guys in gamechat talking, so of course we wanted to communicate with them so we didn't die, thus going to game chat. One guy was apparently just blowing wind in his mic and the other was quiet. My friend and I start talking and after about ten minutes into the game we heard from the quiet guy's mic, "I swear to God Sharleen if you sh*t on my shoulder blade one more time, I'll beat you with the broom again!" We proceeded to laugh so hard I kicked my modem, disconnecting me from Xbox Live.-Dave

Pwn Up: Ill Never Forget You, Fisherman Ralph
I remember when Pokemon Gold and Silver came out, I played it to death. One part I remember is that trainers would call you up just to say hi or brag about their Pokemon. One such trainer called me once or twice and I decided he was my friend. His name was Fisherman Ralph. I would call him every time I turned my Gameboy on just to say hi and every time before I saved to say goodbye. I still think about him sometimes I wonder how hes doing. -Kyle

Yesterday I spent 6 hours getting all of the music from Fallout 3 and New Vegas. Now I know that isn't all that amazing, but you see the normal soundtracks took not even an hour each to find and download. It was finding the complete Adventures of Herbert Daring Dashwood that took the other 4 hours. I was so happy that I cried a little and even went as far as to clear the entirety of my mp3 player so it only has these songs.-Smiley

One time, I was walking along and saw someone dressed mainly in blue. I immediately looked to the bottom right of my vision to see which color I was before remembering that I was not playing Team Fortress 2.-Daniel

Pwn Up: Friendship is Tragic

 

So back in the day my friends and I were having a Halo 2 match using nothing but shotguns and sniper rifles. We were all playing at my house and it was all on one TV. As such screen peeking was an issue, but as friends we tried not to peek in order to keep it competitive. I had found a great perch to snipe from and was doing my best when I noticed buddy Michael's player had stopped moving. I couldn't help myself and looked at his screen only to notice that he had a shotgun pointed right at someone's head at point blank range. By the time the light bulb flicked on and I realized what was happening I was dead. Now here's the kicker. In the game he had snuck up behind me, put the barrel right against my head, and then in real life he turned and waited for me to notice. Only when he saw my expression change did he blow my head off. In hindsight it was hilarious, but in that moment I got pissed and punched him in the shoulder as hard as I could.....and dislocated it. We popped it back in, but we decided to take a break from Halo for a while.

Pwn Up: For Real - Image 2
As a toddler, my younger brother decided he wanted to play videogames like me so it became a daily "chore" to play Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for him while he "played" on an upside-down, unplugged controller. At age 4 he started playing for real and before his 5th birthday beat the Ocarina of Time. By age 7, he was better at videogames than I was. It's tough being a high schooler getting schooled by a 2nd grader.-Terisa

I was playing a game of Trivial Pursuit with my mom about a week ago and I was asked a question along these lines: "The skin of which animal has been often used as sandpaper?" The answer was a shark, and the only way I got it right was by remembering that Sharpedo from Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire had the rough skin ability.-Ryan L.

I've been playing Sleeping Dog non-stop, and being that the game takes place in Hong Kong, whenever you have to drive a car you have to drive on the left side of the street. So doing that for a couple of days, I guess my brain seem to now think that was the norm. I got into my car to run to the store I ended up drive on the wrong side of the road and nearly crashing my car. So for now on I'm only playing game based in the U.S.-Jovan

When I decided I was going to propose to my wife, I needed it to be unique and special. I proposed to her on the Elder Rise of Thunder Bluff in front of both of our WoW guilds. I faced her character, kneeled, opened a trade window and traded her a cubic zirconia ring. She said yes.-Mike

A couple months ago, someone broke into my car and stole a bunch of stuff. They took my video camera, my iPod, my dad's iPod and a bottle of cologne. Losing that stuff was a drag, but the thing that bothered me the most was that the thief didn't take a newly boarded issue of Uncanny X-Force and the first issue of Kick-ass. Why didn't he steal those? I'd steal those.-Colin

Many years ago I was involved in a LARP event. I took the role of a Minotaur. My girlfriend (now wife) body painted runes all over my chest, back, neck, face and arms. I spent five hours in sun and high altitude, with no shade. The sun burned me everywhere the body paint was not. I spent the next three months with inverse tanned-on rune tattoos.-Michael, the Tall

Article Arkham Asylum's Guard Trouble

January 12, 2011
  1. Guard

    Mr. Sharp? Can I come in?

  2. Quincy Sharp

    As long as it's quick, we're having a hell of a day here on the Island.

  3. Guard

    That's partly why I'm here. I've been thinking about how we're running the facility, and it just seems kind of dangerous.

  4. Quincy Sharp

    Dangerous? Of course it is. We have the most dangerous criminals in the world on this island. You knew that when you signed up.

  5. Guard

    Well I knew there were some of the most dangerous criminals in the world, but we literally have all of them. Every single dangerous criminal in the world. I was just thinking we could spread them out a little.

  6. Quincy Sharp

    Spread them out?
