Ruffles’ Facebook Page Has the Best Photoshop Ever

It’s 1 AM, I’m drunk and carefully typing this, and I’m just letting everyone know that Ruffles has a Facebook page and whoever maintains it uses photoshop in a hilariously poor fashion.

The PlayStation 4: Some Things You Need to Know

Alright, normally I’d make a post like this a little more in-depth, blunt, and I guess professional, but there’s a lot to cover. I’m going to pretty much wing this and write about what I saw from watching the live stream of the conference, as well what was exactly shown from tonight’s Sony press event, in which the PlayStation 4 was officially revealed.

If you want to watch the entire two hour conference, I haven’t found a link to a full video yet. You can definitely catch bits and pieces from the event in clips on multiple websites, like GT.TV.

So the conference opened up with a really loud intro in which Sony chose to give a short trailer to showcase their past generations of gaming. They used MSTRKRFT’s remix of Metric’s “Monster Hospital,” and I really like that song, so I paid attention. After the trailer, some boring guy got on stage and was like “Blahblahblahblahblahblah, thanks for coming out here. Here’s our PLAYSTATION 4!” Then everyone clapped because some people in the audience thought they actually wouldn’t fucking call it a PlayStation and they would call it an “Orbis.” 

(And by the way, if you’re still calling the PlayStation 4 the “Orbis,” and you’re blogging/writing for a gaming site, please get away from your keyboard and go outside or something. We have an official name for it. Motherfuckers don’t call Gamecubes “Dolphins,” so why you wanna call a PS4 an “Orbis,” still?)

Anyway, then some other guy who worked on some old games for the Atari and helped make Earthworm Jim or something started talking for a long time. Then he explained what’s new with the PlayStation 4, feature wise. The "share," button was explained, and it was revealed that gamers can now instantly post screenshots and video clips directly into Facebook or somewhere on the Internet. Sony’s actually working with Facebook and UStream, actually. Or something like that. The controller has a touch screen, but we’ve known that for a bit thanks to numerous rumors from the Internet.

The PS4’s camera will allow players to look at each other while playing a game. Different games, same game, etc. You can look at each other, spectate, talk shit, and you can even stream yourself. Pretty much instantly. There’s a pic of that in the image dump up top.

The console is NOT backwards compatible (physically, I guess?) but you will be able to play PS1, PS2, and PS3 games on your system by streaming. Downloads can now be completed when your system is off, which is an extremely cool feature. Games you buy are available to play ASAP. If you want to play Killzone, you can purchase it and literally start it up and begin playing with the game being downloaded while you’re still in-game. Also, there’s a lot to do with clouds. You can transfer games to your Vita, much like Wii U and its controller.

Some other people talked and games were shown. There’s a new Killzone, some other game with some robot in it that looked like a Dreamworks film, and Square-Enix came on stage to show some video too. Then Square-Enix invited grandpa/Final Fantasy board director on stage to say “Hey guys, wanna know what Final Fantasy game we’re making NOW? Too fucking bad, you’ll see it at E3!” Then he got off stage and some other shit was shown. I don’t remember. There was a car game that seemed overly detailed and extremely realistic, but I don’t like cars to begin with so I kind of blocked that out. Oh, and Infamous.

What I do remember, game wise, was Watch Dogs. That game looks incredible. Here’s a trailer of that. Highly suggest watching it if you wanna see what’s on some next-level shit right now. It’s also coming to multiple platforms, but it’s releasing on PS4 first.

Then Sony said “Hey, you remember when we made this?” and then showed off the PlayStation Move. And then I left the room to make a sandwich and watch my girlfriend play Dead Space 2 for a little bit, so I missed a big chunk of it. It was boring though, I’m sure.

Then Blizzard came out! And whoever spoke for Blizzard looked like a really cool step-dad or something, so I really paid attention to him. He was seriously the Tony Stark of Sony tonight, looking real comfortable and making jokes people had genuine laughs with.

Then this motherfucker announced that Diablo III was coming to PlayStation 4 (AND PS3) and every superior PC gamer in the world lost their fucking minds.

Then Bungie came out and said “Hey guys, Destiny is coming out on PS4, too.” Then this team from Bungie came out and stood there in blazers, looked real odd for a while, and then Scotty beamed their awkward asses up so Sony could close the event.

And that was it, for the most part. I’ve linked this post with a bunch of articles to further explain what I can’t right now. There’s loads of photos, videos, etc, so check them out. There’s bits I missed out on, but I’m okay with that. That’s pretty much what happened. I was kind of struggling to not fall asleep.

What we still don’t know is what Sony will price this thing at, what the actual console looks like, and what else is in store for the console. We know it’s out this holiday season, though. Maybe more will be revealed at E3, perhaps?

The Rock Posts Picture at Age 15, Men Everywhere Cry
I already feel horrible for what I put my body through every week (pizza and beer every three days isn’t the best diet, but it may be the funnest), so seeing this image kinda makes me feel reeeallly shitty.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson posted this image of his 15-year-old body on Facebook yesterday and it’s doing a great job of making me feel ashamed of my 21-year-old body today. My guess is that The Rock hit puberty before hitting 10-years-old, and then blossomed into a perfect torso over the course of a couple of weeks.

We Got Pwned: That girl who got 152 of her Facebook friends tattooed on her arm? Yeah, that was a hoax. Nothing more than a wash-off tattoo as part of some company’s viral marketing scheme to sell gifts with Facebook profile pics on them.

Update: Turns out the tattoo’s a fake and this whole thing was a viral marketing stunt. More on that HERE.
This girl got 152 of her Facebook friends’ profile pics tattooed on her arm. She says “These are not all my friends. Just the people I care most about. I got  their permission and they were very proud to be on it. To me it  represents who I am right now and the time we live in. And of course I  love the looks of it.”
This chick’s gonna’ feel SO stupid when one of her “friends” turns out to be a jerk and she removes them from her friends list and still has their face on her arm.
+1,000 awesomepoints for a sexy grid tattoo, though.
