Tyler's Contrabulous Fabtraption > What are you playing this weekend? - Independence Day Edition

Posted tylerh1701 on 05 July 2014 - 01:00 AM

I'm sure DaddyBo is busy with holiday stuff, so I'll fill in for him.

What you guys playing this weekend? I just wrapped up Tomb Raider :ps3: and had a really good time with it, but I don't know what to play next. Probably something else on my PS3 hard drive so I can clear up some more space. I tried Doki Doki :ps4: but it seems really stupid.

No pla...

Tyler's Contrabulous Fabtraption > E3 Wrap Up - Nintendo and Final Thoughts

Posted tylerh1701 on 27 June 2014 - 03:42 PM

Make sure to check out my thoughts on Microsoft's and Sony's E3 Press Conferences as well!


I gotta say, this was Nintendo's best E3 show in years. I didn't fall hook, line, and sinker for some of the tacked-on stuff like the Reggie/Iwata fight and the Robot Chicken skits, but as for actual games Nintendo was really able to outshine some o...

Tyler's Contrabulous Fabtraption > E3 Wrap Up - Sony

Posted tylerh1701 on 24 June 2014 - 06:18 PM

Figure I better get the rest of these posted, as E3 becomes more and more of an afterthought. Previously you can read my takeaways from the Microsoft E3 Conference .


I thought Sony did the best of the big 3, but they all did well. Sony had better surprises, which is my favorite part of E3. The white PS4 was the first out-of-nowhere reveal and...

Tyler's Contrabulous Fabtraption > Ranking My 18 Platinum Trophies

Posted tylerh1701 on 23 May 2014 - 04:37 PM

I'm bored and need something to do until my lunch at 11:30, so I thought I'd do an overview of the 18 Sony games I've actually been able to Platinum.

#18 Lego Indiana Jones 2 - A pretty crumby game and a pretty boring platinum.

#17 Lego Batman 2 (Vita) - Little bit better than Indiana Jones, but still not much to be said about it.

#16 Sonic's Ultima...

Tyler's Contrabulous Fabtraption > Fable Anniversary Review

Posted tylerh1701 on 21 April 2014 - 08:05 PM

I never owned an Xbox 1 original Xbox, so I never got around to playing the original Fable. My cousin sang its praises and sunk hundreds of hours into the game, so I was always quite interested in checking it out. I've had Fable 2 and 3 in my Xbox 360 backlog for quite a while, but never played them since I didn't want to play the games out of order. So...

Tyler's Contrabulous Fabtraption > Opinions Wanted - My One Gripe with Selling on Amazon

Posted tylerh1701 on 18 December 2013 - 10:40 PM

I've been selling on Amazon for the last couple years now, and it's been great. An amazing outlet to resell my games for straight cash (rather than store credit) and generally on par with local trade-in values (and sometimes well above). I don't sell a lot though, I usually only ever have 2-3 items in my inventory. I've maybe done 200 transactions over...

Tyler's Contrabulous Fabtraption > Xbox 360 Ban: The Aftermath

Posted tylerh1701 on 14 October 2013 - 10:14 PM

As some of you readers probably know, I was recently console and account banned by Microsoft. You can read about why it happened here and you can read about the affects of the ban here . This final part of this series is just to talk about the aftermath of the ban and what I'm doing now, game-wise.

So I did post on the Xbox 360 ban boards, but honestly...

Tyler's Contrabulous Fabtraption > Xbox 360 Ban: The Damage

Posted tylerh1701 on 02 October 2013 - 04:08 PM

So yesterday I posted the story of how my Xbox 360 ban happened . Today I thought I'd share with you the damage that was done by this ban. Prepare yourself for a lot of lists.

If you don't know, when you get your account banned on Xbox you lose your licenses for all the digital content you own. It actually seems kind of fucked up that they can do that...

Tyler's Contrabulous Fabtraption > Xbox 360 Ban: The Story

Posted tylerh1701 on 02 October 2013 - 03:29 PM

So as some of you may know, I recently had both my Xbox 360 console and my Xbox Live account permanently banned by Mircosoft during their recent wave of bans. Obviously it sucks, and I thought I'd share my story about the ban and how I feel about it.

The reason for my ban is basically a version of "Marketplace Theft", though I think that's kind of a fun...
