Team Shitty Hitty on V-League

If you pay attention to the side bar over there on Agoners -> you’ll have noticed I’ve been putting up a link to my Street Fighter V stats for a while now, which directs you to my profile on the excellent V-League website. What’s amazing about this site is how far ahead of Capcom they are in every manner, within Street Fighter V in-game, it doesn’t show you anything as good or as useful as this site… it’s kind of great […Full Story…]

Why Ranked modes in Team-based videogames are doing it wrong

Many videogames that are really popular these days are team-based online competitive games – Call of Duty, Halo, League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, Overwatch, and on and on. What astounds me though to this day is how little “TEAM” these games generally manage to inject into their team game modes. Oh sure, you know you’re a member of Red in a game of Red Vs Blue, you might even talk to your teammates and help and co-operate with […Full Story…]

V Hype or Not?

I’ve written some really positive stuff about SFV earlier when I got my first real in-depth play of it back in beta 2, and also some of my more recent concerns from beta 4 as we get nearer to the full launch. I’d been discussing with some friends and listening to the impressions some local fighting gamers about V so I thought it would be interesting to highlight some of that here on Agoners too. My friend and fellow Team Shitty Hitty […Full Story…]

FPS Remy

I just played some Halo Reach for the first time in a while. After playing so much of the Gears of War 3 beta, I was really struggling. I really deserved to be in Team Shitty Shotty at this point – I couldn’t aim properly at all. I was randomly armour-locking all over the place and kept throwing grenades when I meant to reload. AND Bungie have added new maps, and to make matters worse, changed around all the weapons […Full Story…]

Ok, I got a little bit drunk this past New Year’s Eve, and I may just have engaged in some drunken Street Fighting, with excellent Team Shitty Hitty commentary by my friend Mighty Otaking, and perhaps once that was over, I could’ve decided that it was a good moment to send drunken replies to a few messages I had on my Xbox Live inbox. Of course, if any of that nonsense did take place, I am sure it wouldn’t end […Full Story…]

The Revealing Use of Walkthrough Guides

There are a number of ways to tell how and why people play videogames and what type of player they are – are they an Agoner – an actual gamer – playing entertainment software as actual games and challenges for the kinds of reasons we discuss here, or is it for something else? The excellent Brainhex Survey certainly proves invaluable for self analytical game-literate people, as do our videogame classifications, and of course there’s various studies into observing how people play […Full Story…]

Another Team Shitty X Classic

In case you hadn’t already realised, myself and Navan’s piss-take neophyte gaming ‘clan’ Team Shitty Shotty has branched out into so many fields now that it’s become known as Team Shitty X, or just TSX. We now have a theme song, the Scatman, and has a variety of specialised gaming divisions: Team Shitty Shotty – for the common arena of games such as Gears of War and Halolz, where Team Shitty X made its first impact. Team Shitty Clicky – […Full Story…]

One team has STICK!

Team Shitty Shotty enlisted a new member last night, wildpaintings, and the team went on another foolery-filled rampage on Halolz. I suspect that wildpaintings maybe in danger of demotion from TSS however, as he led the Team to their dramatic first ever win. 50 to 49! The game started off badly, with a member of the opposing team immediately making it onto both my ‘Mute’ and ‘Avoid Player – Communication’ lists before the game even began for his ridiculously annoying […Full Story…]

Team Shitty Shotty Sorties

The ultimate in throwaway gaming entertainment? Quite possibly in my opinion. 😉 Last friday night I was so tired I couldn’t even sit up properly on my sofa. So naturally, instead of going to bed, I formed up a Halolz team with two slightly drunk mates, both of whom have barely played Halo ever before, thus creating possibly the most frighteningly poor Halo team of all time. Myself Remy77077, adammk, and yep, Agoner’s very own Navan Daughn unleashed their fearsome […Full Story…]
