Jacksonville, FL Makes the Gaming News

Jacksonville, FL(our home base) made the gaming news again today so I had to post about it. Even though it's pretty gay.

A Jacksonville, FL man bought his girlfriend an Xbox 360 and Viva Pinata with the simple plan of getting her addicted to the game and therefore the system. It worked, and she loved the game.

So then he decides to propose to her and does it by sending her a diamond his miner dug up with a note asking him to marry her. They were playing in the same room on two different systems. She thought he was joking, but then he pulled out a real diamond ring and asked her to marry him. She said yes.

Boo! Why is this the news from here in the news? Why not something cool? Like free games or systems or anything that personally gratifies me. That's the kind of news I like.

And no, Shane, just because you sent me a box full of ducks on Viva Pinata does not mean I'll marry you...

Hey, heres an idea, since were from the same town why don't you interview us like everyone else is, rather than Bash us, moron. First coast, chan 4 and the times union are about to do stories on us, shit Major nelson's people have already emailed for an interview. Why cant you just be happy for somebody. Maybe one day after you get our of your parents basement you'll find a girl gamer too, NooB.

Dang. I've been NooBed! (Do we have basements in Florida?)

Procrasturbate said...

Sorry fag i meant the attic, and there are actually some houses by fort caroline that have basements, yes.

Jester013 said...

I did not know that. Basements in Florida. Who knew?

And see, this is exactly the problem with the Xbox crowd. I mean, I love my Xbox 360. But most of the Xbox Live users are like this guy. They try to insult you for some reason with words like NooB or fag or racial slurs. That's just dumb.

I'm sorry you were insulted by us making fun of you. But why would we interview you? What would that interview consist of? Did I not get all the information correct? This isn't even a story that would cross my radar if it wasn't for the Jacksonville reference.

Anyone who knows me knows 1)I'm a jerk and 2)I'm against marriage. Come back after the first year of marriage and then tell me about it...

I give them less than 6 months. How the heck did this guy find our site? We get more grief than we get love.

As a side note Procrasturbate, I told my wife and she thinks it's pretty cool.

Jester013 said...

My side note is that I did NOT tell my girlfriend because I'm not buying her a 360 and I'm definitely not buying her Viva Pinata.

Procrasturbate said...

yea.. well turn your TV to 12 or 25 tonight at 6 or 630... you'll see us.

And if this story is so worthless. why report on it anyhow.

To answer your question, on google, your 1 of about 150 sites that have reported on this event. Just type in jacksonville and viva pinata.

wow.. jester.. you got a Girlfriend... oo heres an idea... why dont ya met me @ regency mall tonight... say.. around 5pm?. How about in front of Hallmark and gamestop?

Id love to see if your as witty in person as you are in front of your keyboard. Deal?

Jester013 said...

Really? Regency Mall? The dirt mall? Fun. And I'll save you the suspense. I AM as witty in person.

Procrasturbate said...

oo so not only are you a babbling moron, but a bigot as well. good to know.

Jester013 said...

How am I a bigot? The Regency Mall sucks.

Jester013 said...

Procrasturbate, I must apologize.

1) I didn't realize there were TWO Gamestops in the Regency Mall so I was at the wrong one. I didn't realize there was another one and get over there until around 5:30 pm. (Picture coming shortly.) Why are there two?!?

And 2)you were right and I was wrong. The Regency Mall IS a good mall. I haven't been there in years, but it's very nice with a lot of stores and some good deals. I got seasons of How I Met Your Mother and My Name is Earl for half-price! Sweet!

Procrasturbate said...

haha... to bad. I told Hallmark and Gamestop. Thats the OTHER side of the mall. i was there too.. from 4 till 8. Just because my Fiance works in that wing. I was in the game stop talking to Luise the manager from 4:50 till 5:45, meanwhile bought an accessory, (time and date stamp) lol... and went back to her store so we could see ourselves on Channel 12 @ 6. Sorry i missed ya.

Jester013 said...

Well, we must have been in the store at the same time. Of course, since I have no idea what you look like I don't know what you expected.

(Me at Gamestop)
(Receipt)

And I did some searches on Jacksonville and Viva Pinata. I thought maybe we were being too cruel since you seem so pissed about this whole thing, but no, we're not the only site that made fun of this story.

I'm glad you found happiness, but let's face it, this story is being talked about on a lot of sites because it's a fluff piece the gaming industry can promote to say "See, games aren't all violence and bad stuff! And girls like games too!" Which of course, they love because of all the negative gaming news with Jack Thompson, Manhunt 2 and everything else.

Good luck to you. I'm done with this story.
