All About davedrastic
At the present moment I'm too disinterested to explain the below situation explicity. I might make some adjustments at certain stages. But for the moment i'll present this blog as is.
I guess the only approrpiate title for this topic is "Is discussing **** size appropriate during the Ozpot?"
Which is entirely and utterly related to the thread started within the gamespot forums as below:-
Now for me, personally, this thread was shut down rather abrubptly and unnecessarily. And when I say "rather" I'm using my polite voice.
Now i've been disapointed by this thread for multiple reasons, but my basic point remains, isn't the Ozspot crew in the least bit accountable for their actions?
Now on a personal level I'm well up for freedom of speech. But I'm not suggesting that the Ozspots discussion of cocks would warrant such a discretion. It might, it might not. I personally have no idea of the legalities involved.
I can, however, state that I find such discussions to be an abhorrent indication of the recent demise of the Ozspot podcasts.
Why on Earth are the presenters deciding that listeners want to listen to the disection of a leading actors work history in terms of and in direct accordance with the length of their penis Sure, apparently it's a flattering length, but really, who does this discussion serve?
Does it serve the ego of the person in question , Mr Fassbender. If so, could we take the viewpoint that he doesn't require, expect, deserve, or appreciate such potentially flattering comments.
Is such comments for the benefit of the general Ozspot audience? In which case, shouldbn't we all take a good, long (no pun intended) look at ourselves?
The comments weren't made for any particular reason.
They were made flippantly, by paid Ozspot representatives, that feel that we (the Ozspot audience) deserve little more than tabloid standard tittle-tattle.
That really is the be all and the end all isn't it.
According to the Gamespot representatives that contributed within the aforementioned thread, they feel perfectly comfortable with their contribitutions, as do several of the repondents within the aforementioned thread.
Personally I think they're kidding themselves. Professional journalists shouldn't resort to discussing the size of a celebrities cock or their **** or their vadge or whatever else.
Personally I think professional journalists should attempt to remain professional.
But then I'm to be disagreed with and insulted, aren't I.
On May 14th 2009, Engadget.com posted some pics of what is purported to be a PS3 "Slim". Essentially the same PS3 that we all know and love, but in a smaller, cheaper and more energy effiicient package. Woah momma - could it be true?
On the 18th May, Engadget were asked not so politely to remove their pics of said machine further fuelling speculation that the Slim will indeed be upon us soon.
A few short weeks later, Sony's head honcho dismisses the story and the speculation whilst questioned at E3, despite the pics displaying packaging very much like that found with the now confirmed PSP Go.
We all know that a PS3 Slim will eventually be released, but could it be upon us now? The recently launched PS3 80gb bundles have spirred a new round of rumouring so I thought it was about time I jumped on this bandwagon and stated categorically wether or not a PS3 Slim is about to be released.
I for one say yes. Yes, the Slim is just around the corner. It will be released within the next couple of months and will effectively be a re-launch of the PS3, along with some new partnership announcements and at least a moderate price drop.It will be backed by TV adverts and a significant marketing push, in line with the run-up to Christmas.
You cannot convince me that this isn't going to happen soon. Furthermore I strongly believe that the Engadget pics are spot-on and that our slims will be smaller, matt and with a 120gb hard drive.
So Sony you can forget about me buying your gigantic PS3, with or without an extra free game. It aint gonna happen no more. Frankly I'm quite annoyed with Sony for not allowing me to pick up a PS3 at a reasonable price long ago, but the only saving grace is if I get to enjoy the space saving benefits that the new model will allow. So don't friggin delay it Sony, you hear me. And keep the price reasonable, or there will be trouble.

I've been playing games since I was 10 years old when my family became proud owners of the BBC Micro B. We had a great selection of very good Arcade machine clones including Pacman, Galaxian, Galaga and the like, as well as a wider variety of games from football to platformers - yay Chuckie Egg. I was acutely aware that the BBC Micro lacked the finesse of the C64 and arguably even the ZX Spectrum, but it was a great machine and we enjoyed a wealth of good quality games.
A major moment in my young life was when I received a handheld mini-munchman which I had been longing for, and started a collection of many handheld games machines along the lines of, but strangely never including, the Nintendo Game and Watch series.
During my teens, the most time consuming hobby I had was gaming on my Commodore Amiga 500 and I loved the likes of Kick Off 2 and Stunt Car Racer (which really ought to be a mobile phone game by now). I was also lucky enough to acquire a Sega GameGear which in my mind is a much underestimated machine.
The reason for letting you know about my gaming roots is really to show that I've consistently been playing games, a good variety of them, for much of my life. Due to the amount of time, effort and love I have for games, I would happily call myself a gamer, although of course I do have other things going on in my life.
The term hardcore gamer is a term that I've only come across in recent years, and I would not typically want to be associated with anything that is considered hardcore. I've always considered the term hardcore gamer to be associated with those gamers that will spend several hours, every day, playing the latest and greatest games, typically of a challenging and fast-paced nature requiring a high level of gaming skill and experience.
The term casual gamer is a relatively new term for all, and is largely characterized by the Nintendo Wii owners that occasionally use their machines, or those buying PS2s' to use Singstar or such, perhaps even those that will play a game on their mobile when they're on the train. I think that one of the main characteristics of a casual gamer is that they're spending a low amount of time on gaming, and as such are likely to have a low level of gaming skill and experience.
So am I a Casual or a Hardcore gamer?
I've recently come to the conclusion that my preference is to be a Casual gamer rather than a Hardcore gamer. I've played all kinds of games on all kinds of machines but I've recently found that I simply don't like games that are too demanding, too big, too time consuming. I've been playing a little BioShock, and it's great, but quite soon into the game I made the decision to abandon it - do I really need to spend 10 hours or so to walk around doing the same old thing - is it really that much fun? Sure it's intense, sure it's scary and impressive - but so will the next big release game. I gave Assassins Creed a go too, oh my gawd how boring can a game get. Then I remember the MGS series - the PS1 game was great, very innovative and absorbing but I couldn't even get past the opening cinematic of MGS2, and MGS3 gameplay sucked balls. GTA Vice City has to be one of my all time favourite games - so original, great dialogue and characters, great vehicles - but I had to push myself all the way through GTA San Andreas. I used to love the GT series and would obsess about all the tests, licenses and trophies, but with GT4 I abandoned it early on because I realised that the game would suck several months of my life if I let it.
I've also got a handful of online FPS' now on the Wii but I hardly play them because as much as I'd like to think that I'm good at gaming, I consistently get my ass handed to me, I'm sure by teens that have been playing for a fraction of the time that I have. And I'm not doing too well with online driving games either, although I would swear that I'm pretty effing good at driving games but somehow I'm playing driving gods that whoop my ass time and time again.
Despite the hours and years that I've spent playing and obsessing over games of almost all kinds, I hereby acknowledge that I am a Casual Gamer, and proud of it. I love games, and I'm happy to play games on my mobile, or Flash games on my PC, or the old standards - yay Chuckie Egg. I will continue to spend several hours a week on games, but not so much that it will infringe on other aspects of my life. I will continue to experiment with new types of games and will continue to some degree with hardcore genres such as FPS' as long as they remain fun, not too difficult and not too time consuming. I will refrain from obsessing over the latest and greatest big releases, because I've learned that the bigger and badder they are, the harder and less accessible they will be. I will probe the wonders on offer on my newly acquired Nintendo DS and will not feel embarrassed whilst pushing Spongebob through the galaxy or whilst playing Disney franchises. And I encourage you to do the same.
