C-Blog Recaps for 6/16/13 + Jinxisms



Didn't spend a lot of time gaming this last week because all the news and drama from E3 was so engrossing. But... still a few things worth mentioning.

I checked out Akaneiro: Demon Hunters Saturday, a new game by Spicy Horse. It's still in development, but so far it's good fun. I backed it on Kickstarter so I got a free Steam key for early access. Feels somewhere between Diablo and Zelda 1, which is not a bad thing. The game takes place in Japan, and the watercolor-styled visuals are quite cool. Worth keeping an eye on. It will be free-to-play, the early access kit just gets you some extra goodies.



I've also been tinkering with a 3rd person hack I found for Borderlands 2 (PC). You wouldn't want it on all the time (you can toggle it), but it's a neat change and quite playable. Since the game lets you customize your character, it's nice to actually see them in-game rather than just on the inventory and title screen.



So yeah, my Wii U hate has been somewhat... excessive. Seriously, I think I need medication or something. HOWEVER. I'm finally startin' to feel some love for the 'ol Wee-ooo. Super Mario 3D World had me jumping up in down in my seat like a little kid. It's not quite the Mario 64 or Mario Galaxy type game I was hoping for, but... kittie suit OMG ADORABLE AAAAAHHHH!!!! *bounces*



Now, on to those C-Blogs!

* - bigboss0110 shares a fun and uplifting blog about how New Super Mario Bros. U made him feel like a kid again. He managed to get ME excited about a Wii U game, that's sauce-worthy right there.



Word of the day, courtesy of the Torgue vending machines in Borderlands 2...



This is actually a thing that is happening...

E - Marcunio tells us about his trip to "Etoo" London- a small, more intimate event that's quite the counterpoint to E3.
S - YesConsiderably talks about the interesting method he used to seek out a new gaming handle for his shift to Playstation. He needn't worry, though, picking your second gaming nick is-
I - Calidreth gives us a (re) introduction, and talks about his love of writing about gaming.
S - dergrimnebulin (okay that's a mouthful) shares a touching story about his childhood, his family, and Super Mario Bros.

T - Nick Di Fulvio shares his thoughts on Nintendo's E3 showing.
R - Willza gives us an excellent, upbeat review of Remember Me. I'd throw in a few pics to mix things up next time, though.
P - KeiththeGeek gives us an in-depth look at how the Villager character might play in the new Super Smash Bros. game. SB and fighting game fans will appreciate this one.
T - TheManchild expresses his excitement for Final Fantasy XIV, and puts it in context with some other MMOs and FF titles.

S - ZombieePanda ordered a special 3DS XL - an Animal Crossing: New Leaf one! She's looking for recommendations on a good case for the XL. Hopefully when she gets the system she can give us a mini-review!

L - Moth informs us that Xbox One games may not be playable on the system until about 2015. Because television?

F - I'm sorry, Nihil, but this Remember Me "review" is not that funny and potentially offensive :/


And finally, you Fake Nerd Boys are getting called the hell out!
