DaKing called strange by Joystiq....

And I think they mean us indirectly.

The big sites always try to mock people interested in gamerscore, will never change.

If it is true, who the fuck are they to judge gamers when they are, in fact (the last time I checked) a gaming website?

Anybody else see the irony?

Very unprofessional

It's still annoying to read it. Especially after they basically admitted that they got frisky with the achs for The Orange Box.

Joystiq are asses in my opinion. I usually love their stories but they are always blasting at people.

I don't think their stories are complete unless they attack something.

Yes, it is obviously a site run by people without brains. Maybe somebody could post that in their comments section. :woop:

Depends on your definition of strange :p

And the fact that connotation was derogatory in my opinion.

Did you just say "diss?"

:p

That's like the "High Five" of insulting nouns...

Your all noobs that live in your parents basements playing dungeons and dragons,
it reminds me of the egm thing where they slagged off gamers as well.
I guess they think they can say what they want,
and people wont get offended.

The site sucks, and has nothing else to write about. Get over it.

Wow i read it and thought it was kind of complimentary.:eek:

I mean maybe i am just naive but its a site called "Joystiq" and it seems to cover all sorts of videogame related news. Its hardcore about all types of video games, for all systems. Seemed to me they were just begrudgingly admitting that there were people who are far more hardcore than them in specific systems ;) Am i wrong? Is it really an insult?

Maybe its just because i consider being called "strange" a good thing..Every true innovator has been called it and one point or another..OR maybe its because i spend all day on XBL getting called all sorts of worse things..
