+ Haskell420 on December 7th, 2010 at 1:26 pm said:

Thats pretty cool… I wish i could get in on the contest but I have to send my PS3 back, AGAIN. I sent it back to Sony 3 1/2 weeks ago, got it back, Mom in hospital, spending all time their. Played Bruns. Pro Bowling Sat. night, 1st game on referbed PS3, all seems ok. Today, sign on, enter HOME to start re downloading EVERYTHING all over again, when I hear BEEP BEEP BEEP.

So now I have to wait for Sony to send me a box, ship it back, wait, get it back, 2 weeks minimum gone..So….
– I cant get in the contest listed above, cause my PS3 died, AGAIN.
– I can’t download the killer Part 1 PS PLUS mega content today, along w/QORE, Pulse, oh, lol, and lest not forget that I’m in the Playstation Rewards BETA…… PS3 dies a week after Rewards starts….get it back, dont play 1 game in a week, and now cant get into tthe Rewards, “QUESTS”, so now I’m missing out on that as well……

If I win can I get the PS3 that doesn’t look like it’s been beat with an ugly stick? Otherwise keep the PS3 and I’ll take the Special Edition GT5.

This season has been good. I was actually talking to Hal Sparks a few weeks ago at something and I brought up season 1. He said the audition tapes (that we didn’t get to see) were CRAZY. People will do anything basically to try to get on the show.

Haskell420…stop being a Debbie Downer. No one cares if your PS3 broke again. Take better care of it.


+ dlhdav7 on December 7th, 2010 at 1:32 pm said:

@ 7 … if i win you will get my old one ok !!!!!! i feel bad 4 you !! and i did say old one !!

Scooter is such a tool. He makes Big Fazeek the sympathetic one.


+ Lopan on December 7th, 2010 at 1:37 pm said:

Big Fa-Zeek, if I’m spelling out his name right is being so mis-understood and mistreated. In the first 2 episodes I was totally against him but now I think everyone else needs to because they are being the worst A-holes Fa-Zeek every was.


+ Haskell420 on December 7th, 2010 at 1:47 pm said:

I DO take care of it. It’s an original 60gb I got in January of 06′, it’s sits on an open shelf on my entertianment center, plenty of space all around it, I bought a small fan that blows the air near the vents, and all the heat goes BYE BYE. I’ve never, ever, eve,r had a heat issue, let alone a dust issue, it was and still is PRISTINE, except of course that probably the motherboard needs to be replaced, AGAIN.

I really wish the update was done at a decent time. I mean cmon, SCEA, it’s now 5:43 EST. I’ve been done work for almost an hour, business hours are done. I’d like the store to be updated earlier, it can’t be that hard to fulfill. Change the schedule to the morning. I’m sure you’d have a lot more happier customers.

Glad that douch Big Fa-Zeek was thrown out like the piece of trash he was. Although it does make me question if we was planted, almost too much of a douch to be real…

+ ExplodingRabbit on December 7th, 2010 at 9:41 pm said:

well i’m done with this show…. SPOILERS:

kicking out big fazeek for being mean? why not just wait a week (assuming he loses the challenge) and kick him out then… the show bends the rules and kicks him out even though he had immunity. The show will now suck without the hilariousness that was big fazeek.


+ Stan2E3 on December 7th, 2010 at 9:46 pm said:

I don’t agree with what happened with Big Fazeek. I understand you gotta be a team player at SONY but this is a competition. Also I have watched all the episodes and Fazeek put aside differences more than once to work with the group of haters around him. He even carried his nemesis in Ep.4 military challenge. They decided they didn’t like him from the start. BTW someone mentioned him being planted and I can see that. He was only one that had no real name in his profile. They didn’t like him because he had a chip on his shoulder due to his vast game collection and then did not win the first challenge. I was even surprised at his slow pace. Regardless of the poor reasons behind it cause it was complete BS and the group ganged up on him, HE was IMMUNE! They should have warned him to correct his behavior then given him another chance cause he earned it in the challenge. It is not his fault that some people have no control of their own emotions.


+ Stan2E3 on December 7th, 2010 at 9:48 pm said:

To Big Fazeek: I don’t know how qualified it makes you to have almost 2000 games but you did get a bum rap and should have stuck up for yourself. I don’t own all the systems or games you have but have played intellevision, Atari, C64 and on and on to today with the PS3. I have played thousands of games and in that experience I would have been grateful for the opportunity you were given. But don’t give up. I have similar gaming experience and know what makes a good game, so I know you do too. Your team didn’t listen to you during that challenge either. I really wanted to hear your ideas in episode 5 because of the dreams of a better game I have had being a gamer so long. Hope someone else saw the same thing and you get the job someday you deserve. The kids in that house may have learned how to throw a tantrum till they get what they want but they need to be open to the criticism and learn to deal with tougher people than you. I think you would have been great at SONY but hell what do I know? Gaymer got my vote now cause he from San Diego. Mo Chocolate is by far my favorite but the strongest one in that house is Ches-ka.


+ NURADEEN on December 7th, 2010 at 10:06 pm said:

I was starting to like the show. Big fazeek was a half doosh but i didn’t think that was right how he got eliminated . Whats the point of winning immunity ??? Im glad the cry baby ,whats her name , got sent home. I see how the playstation family works now. If you look at some episodes you can see that cry baby was a instigator. she provoked Big fazeek from the beginning . Big fazeek should have lost fairly not because of a provoking cry baby ,what’s her name.


+ Wafi24 on December 7th, 2010 at 11:03 pm said:

Dude, Big Fazeek thing was messed up. I want mo choc to win it all! Did you guys know d-listed model curry is married to a 53 year old when she is like 28. The dude was 25 when she was a baby. PEDO! Haha, but yeah fazeek should have stayed and got whooped by mo choc go mo go!
