Well while you were all drinking with friends and looking for all of the vaginas, I spent the evening hanging off Zeus' ball sack.

So who's the loser now?

Pac1Man is online now

I'd love to go out and meet girls but my parents only put 2 points in my CHA attribute when they spawned me.

Seems April 1st is coming early this year! At least I hope it is!

Will anyone be making use of the "Aldi Teatime Takedown" campaign?

Apparently to "help" parents get their kids off the games console and down for dinner - Aldi have hired a crack team of gamers.

Parents have to reveal their kids gamer tag* - their online identity - to this crack team of gamers who will then all stalk the kid and make their life hell in the game by beating them and essentially harassing and bullying and targetting them.

The goal being to make the kid rage quit the games and happily meander down for a friendly and cordial family dinner.

*Please note, by submitting your child’s gamer tag, you’re giving our elite squad of professional gamer’s permission to request to join your child’s game via the platform

Amazing. Can't wait for the law suit when one of their "crack team" turns out to be a paedo.

^ Well I am assuming it is an early joke and not real. As it seems to ridiculous to be real. Plus the "sign up" button simply links to a Facebook thread which kinda suggests it is a joke to me.

I suppose since they are asking for the kids "Gamer Tag" there is a risk someone taking it seriously will post that tag on that Face Book thread and broadcast it to every Pedo in the UK.

But so far no one has done that it seems which means either A) no one has missed the joke or B) they have constant moderation deleting people who do do that.

Wtf is the hysteria about pedos? They can just go online anyways. Why would they directly link it to their job?


It must be a joke, though. Highly weird that they give guides for PS, Xbox, and ..... Twitch??

^ Yea I love the bit in the Twitch section where they say "Ask their permission". That gave me a laugh.

One of my big regrets in life was spending too much time on video games in my 20's and early 30's and not enough time actually planning for my future. Otherwise I'd have my own place by now. It's only in the last two years that I've finally started to get my a$$ in gear and start planning properly for my future. The phrase "young and dumb" comes to mind

I'm interested in how you've pinned it so much on gaming.. Were you unemployed because of it or spending all your money on them?

I wasn't unemployed but I was spending quite a lot of money and time on them when I should have invested in a mortgage/car/other projects instead.
I'm not knocking gamers, I just think that when it comes to other things in life,games should never be one of your first priorities unless you plan some sort of career in gaming.
