I was thinking of something to suprise everyone, right out of the blue and finishes the series on a high-note. So I looked to the FPS gods, and I saw what I had to do. Praying to the legends and gamers alike, I took a solemn promised and now deliever upon that, for now you’re looking into the heart of tributes. The very fabric of tribut…ation? Oh fuck it, not really a good illusion is it? You fucking morons know more about sex than FPS shooters, so thats why I’ve decided to rip and tear, and really finish this series in my own way.

Good evening ladies and gentlemen, and welcome the penultimate part of the priecless penondrudem known as the FPS tribute!

Or should I just start with a little video from our first developer choice blah?! I think option 2 sounds the best, and I doubt many of you have seen this, if you have then shut up and if you haven’t… well… shut up and watch damnit!

Hello folks, today will be short because I decided to download the Watchmen game. 4 paragraphs at the most. So we might as well have a little short tribute now shall we? When I say “FPS” you would either think of a game or a developer? Amirite? ‘Cos that’s what happens to me when anyone says it. So how about we have a little experiment… FPS! Now, what comes to your mind? Call of duty? Treyarch? Doom? Duke Nukem Forever or something else? For me it’s something else entirely. Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by Nathan Hardisty on March 9, 2009

Hello to a special edition of TGITBGE, which I like to call TGITBGEF! Rolls right off the tounge doesn’t it? In the franchises edition of this ‘wikid’ series, I’ll be exploring five series which I think have shaped and molded the genre. So, before I get this show on the road, a little apology about part two not appearing on Friday – it’s not cause I’m lazy – the WordPress servers had a hiccup and all of my schedueled tings got lost, but anyway, without further adue, let’s boogy!

So begins a little tribute I’ve had in mind for a while, an actually LOVING article… heh… you don’t see those too often on this site now do you?
