Current Music: Starbound soundtrack (amazing, worth the price of the game alone)
Recent Movie: Hobo With A Shotgun (not done yet, I love me some Rutger Hauer)
Recent TV: Star Trek: Deep Space 9 (best Trek, period)
Recent Gaming: Skyrim, Castle of Illusion, King of Fighters XIII

Jinxisms are going to be a bit brief this week… I fried my brain doing two other blogs this week. So I will shamelessly plug my GTX760 4GB Unboxing and Review and A PC Gamer's Shopping Guide because what is power for if not to be abused?

So, um, I sometimes buy games on flimsy premises. Specifically for there being an attractive girl in them. Yeah, I'm weak. But Poison is awesome even if SFxTK is so-so. And this week… well, I decided a chance to finally have Mai Shiranui on my PC was not to be missed. Seriously, Mai must be why cosplay was invented. In any case, Kelly Jean's Mai Shiranui cosplay is goddess-like.



There were a ton of good blogs Sunday, be sure to check them out!

* - Horror Gaming - Callusing explores what it takes to make a horror game great.

* - Open World Gaming - In this detailed blog, Defenestrator considers storytelling in open-world gaming, with Saint's Row 4 as the main example.



Word of the Day?



You win a prostate exam from Skullgirls' Valentine. Nice knowing ya.



RIP Sarah, 9/18/11. Her favorite game was Twilight Princess, her hair was pink, and she was an amazing dancer and beautiful person. Love always, you are my twilight princess and I will never forget you.



T - Fighting Games - Slayer Quest takes a critical look at the (lack of) logic in fighting games.

R - Tales of Xillia - King Zelos reviews this jRPG and finds it quite worthy of your time!

T - Vita - Amaterasu talks about the Vita's tough road, but potentially bright future.

T - Go Speed Racer! - Ryoma confesses an undying love for the Speed Racer movie, and its under-appreciated video game tie-in.

T - Consoles - Edwinjoe talks about the bad and the good of this console generation.

T - Artist/Audience in Interactive Context - Marohen presents us a short but smart blog that takes a more academic look at this relationship in videogames.

T - Drag-on Dragoon 3 - Rekka shares her anticipations for the new release and her love for jrpgs.

T - Multiplayer - Shifter101 takes on the issue of 'tacked on' multiplayer in single-player games, and points out that it can be quite rewarding in some cases.

T - Kill to Progress - Zerocrossing discusses the history of this gameplay mechanic and how it's been central in video games from the start.

T - Katamari Damacy - JawshButturBawls is rediscovering PS2 games he missed, including this gem.

F - Game Commercials - Timnoldzim discusses the "dying art" of videogame commercials, and provides some great (and funny) examples from the past.

M - Little Nemo - Amxwolf shares the music and history of the NES game's title music!

C - Pope's laptop is in the shop, but he's finding other ways to keep his hands busy.

L - GTAV Review! - Or not! Osc44 has fun coming up with a  fictional GTAV review. My favorite part? He lists PC as the version played. Soon, my friend. SOON.

L - Comic - Pokemon meets Reservoir Dogs in Slayer Quest's parody.



Many more of these here. And I found this, too...

Not sure when/if it will come about, but we've talked a bit about reworking the blog categories. I feel kind of dumb putting 90% of the blogs in the "Thoughts" category, and I'm thinking better categories might encourage a wider variety of blog types. I mean, why is there no "Game Guide" category or something, for example? What do you think, any categories you'd like to see if these get reworked at some point?


This .gif is here on general principle.

Have a good week, D'toiders.
