Best of ‘010

This year has been a great year for the Three-Fourte’s. Many things have happened to the writers, the readers, and the contributors who make this website possible. We appreciate every single one of you who have mentioned the word “Threefourt”. Suffice it to say, we love you all, and I hope you do the same.

Today I’m going to sit down with you, and describe the best things that have happened in the past year. Some of the events are not so great, we have received a lot of hate mail, but it just goes to show the amount of popularity that has come in the times past.

Best Blog Post of ‘010

Here on threefourt, we have made over 500 blog posts. Some of them have been lost in translation, server issues, and memory. Of all the new posts made this year, I would have to choose this one

Valveland – Part 1

Stratofarius, one of the new writers in 2010, wrote this amazing post showing off a few key ideas if Valve products became a theme for a park. I felt that this post was the greatest of the year, since it has both innovation, content, new writers, and good reception. Thank you Stratofarius, for this wonderous contribution!

Best Content Stolen by Valve in ‘010

There was a lot of sweet ideas, models, and jokes that were stolen this year. The best one, however, would have to be the model concept I had started working on after submitting my Flower hat to their web servers. “What,” might you ask, “is that?” The T-Bone Steak that I had proposed for the soldier. Not only does the model match my sticky-note drawings of the steak, it also has a similar concept to the mechanics I had guessed the soldier should use. The only difference between my steak and Valve’s would have to be the fact that the heavy is munching instead of the soldier, and its a little bit darker of a tint.

Best Content Stolen by Something Awful in ‘010

One of the highlights of the Threefourt Career was when we gained notoriety on the Something Awful forums (an infamous blog known for their great sense of humour), or more specifically, their well-known flash animator, Shmorky. He had taken one of my jokes and made it popular. I appreciate him talking about me on the forums and giving us a little bit more traffic. Thanks Shmorky, for stealing my jokes!

Most Viewed Blog Post of ‘010

The most viewed page on all of Threefourt this year was our homepage, which netted 10% of the total views to the site. This blog post attracted a lot of views, and received hundreds of comments. Thank you contributors of Threefourt, for making this possible!

Highest Contributing Author of ‘010

Well, I was going to just see who posted the most content on the blog, but wordpress is being dumb and won’t show me anymore (they changed how some things look). So instead, I’m going to give this one to 3com111. He saved the day back in October, when I had asked him to write a new blog post about his recent tragedy, to spark up the blog while I was busy and occupied with other things. Had he not been there to help Threefout, we would be in ruins. The viewcount dropped dramatically just before that post, but thank god for 3com111, who had brought the average count back up to par.

Best Video Game of ‘o11

Sorry, I mean’t ‘010. I would have to say that all the games released this year were crap (hence the lack of posts), so I’m going to have to give it to last year’s winner -oh wait, no good games in 2009 either. Oh well.

Best Blog That Had Content Posted in ‘010

Threefourt, duh.

Best Valve Content Release This Year

Well I was waiting for them to include my custom hat in their microtransactions, but you know how Valve time works. We’ll save that hat for next year’s awards. This year, the best thing Valve has done would have to be Alien Swarm (Possible Future Review?).

Best Referral Advertising Threefourt (in ‘010)

I would have to give props to Facepunch Studios for this, since they’ve helped out the blog immensely by being the most common viewer of the blog. Although most members periodically hate the content published, deep down, I’m sure they appreciate that someone has the balls to state the truths that I present. Thanks Facepunch, and thank you Garry Newman.

Best “Best of ‘010” Blog Post Since ‘008

In the past two years, there haven’t been many reviews of the year 2010, and I think that our review wins, as it covers all the events pretty well, and anything we have missed can be found in our podcast. If you want to check it out, go click the “previous entry” link at the bottom of this post, or keep reading this blog post.

Worst Blog Post of ‘010

There are some issues that even Threefourt encounters. We aren’t the greatest group when it comes to technical difficulties, and this blog post would have to be considered the worst.

Happy Holidays From Threefourt! 2010 Edition

This post never was written. We put time and effort into a desktop image, and delicately wrote a small editorial regarding the photo. We nominated this as the worst post, because we were unable to bring the content to you due to technical difficulties with WordPress. Maybe someday we can get a better blogging client.

Best Podcast of Twenty-Oh-Ten

If you haven’t figured out that we’re giving ourselves all the awards yet, I would like to let you know that we’re giving ourselves all the rewards. We are an outstanding company, and have been for many years, we’ve painstakingly written over 180 blog posts for your heart’s desire, we traveled across the United States each morning to go to our office to review the fan mail we get, we have personally replied to every hate-mail we’ve received, and declined many applications to our writing staff, we’ve had half of the country of Greenland visit our website and be very cold at the same time, we’ve told Valve to fuck off (and that’s a pretty big Company) and they replied apologetically, and we’ve satisfied our customers; You. We’ve done the impossible, and we’re prepared to do it again.

The question is,
Are you ready for the next year?

Oh, and the best podcast of ‘010 is ours, since I haven’t told you yet. check out the link!
