C Blog Recaps of 10/29/12 + mcgeeisms


And a happy Monday to you, too! It's been an interesting week, and it will probably come to a head with Halloween, so get your holes ready. For candy, maybe. I guess you never really know, with Helloween. See what happened there? It shouldn't have happened. Uh-oh. Smurfisms are fighting with mcgeeisms. Somebody hand me my razor blade; I stashed it inside that taffy ball.

Like I mentioned, it has been a week. A week. An actual week. I got some real nice mail, including this one. So many thanks, knutaf! So, of course I had to give this one a TEST DRIVE. I've quickly put several hours into the game and I'm already digging it bigtime. The racing is as good as it always is, but the open world structure really does make it feel different. It reminds me a little of a new Outrun mixed with NFS. You can just drive until the sun goes down. You can also challenge racers on the fly, so even if you feel like just driving about, you still have a way to race someone. There are plenty of little challenges to do, and even an interesting collectible feature (barns with old, worn, but awesome, cars,) if you're not up for racing. There are even "speed traps" that clock your speed as you pass, and will show you your friends' speeds right then & there. Reminds me of a thing I read about recently. The game seems very good so far. Initial impressions ftw.

In other "news," I was on a podcast this weekend. Jesus. How do you people do it? I have even more appreciation for all the podcasters on Dtoid, and everywhere, really. I already think speaking is overrated, but now I have to do it within a time frame? About a specific topic? I'm being recorded? And someone will hear this? And...and...thank you, Captain Morgan. You are my hero. Trying not to be nervous and also some fraction of what is considered eloquent as well as trying to minimize dead air, with all kinds of thoughts going through my head while also reading things (some of which I wrote, but for some reason am ignoring...) I feel like fucking Lucille Ball trying to work that assembly line. Thanks Strider, for actually sticking with it. Good man.
Oh, look; it's uploaded. ...Yay?

Now that I'm done vomiting through my keyboard, let's get to the good stuff. YOUR people's stuff.
C-A-P-S.

Pumpkin carved by @somethingpc

* - Alex N gains +1 Readership and makes level 3 with this blog. What do you fine folks think of the permeation of typical RPG mechanics into so many genres?

* - Katamari X Mass Effect?!? This gets the mcgee Stamp of Approval.

A - Dead Space still holds up as a title to truly fear. !scarejumps-- #Lame

A - SilentHeaven109 was not pleased with RE6. However, something tells me Capcom will be "apologizing" for it by making RE7 in a very similar fashion.

A - Bearded Gent did not love Dishonored, and doesn't think much of the choices or tools it gives you.

A - Lenigod makes a PROPER return to the C-blogs, with a piece about Battlefield 3 and it's mastery of gameplay mechanics.

P - Episode 2 of the Cblog Fapcast! I can guarantee that words are sort of said, sort of about the Cblogs. I guarantee! Big ups to StriderHoang for editing/mixing/mastering/fappering.





S - Strider and his GF get adorable at Disneyland! As it's Halloween time, he went as Jake, and she went as Flame Princess. Cute picspam!

R - Rekka reviews SOL Trigger. It made enough of an impression on her for her to start a fansite AND record some music from the game, because it's that good. I'd say check this one out, RPG fans.

T - Brother Kaif loses him game save, and through it, learns a little something about the game he was playing. Do you have any horror stories of lost saves?

R - djvlice has a short review for a short game: Home.









F - If you put Jim's name in the title of your blog, people will read it. I hope you have something substantial to go with it. It's actually slightly impressive how he can use all those words and stats to say absolutely nothing.
