C Blogs of 02/04/14 + Wrenchisms

Good news, I started a new job!

Bad news, I'm super tired and feel like a crumb bum. Why did you guys have to write so many blogs today of all days!? But at least you all brought the goods, some great blogs went up today and it was a pleasure to read them, even if I moaned and pouted my way through them.

So how about some super short Wrenchisms?

Our good friend Knutaf of Secret Moon Base fame uploaded another entry in his Dark Souls Science YouTube series! His examination of run speeds with various armour loads was fascinating to me, but more than that, I enjoyed the look into his methodology. Really cool stuff!

Dark Souls is the game that keeps on giving. After watching an incredible video of cut content the other day I thought I might have finally seen the last of Dark Souls secrets only to accidentally stumble upon a literary reference I never noticed in the game hours later!

I'm thinking of compiling a blog about the various literary, historical, and pop culture nods in the game. There are a lot of subtle nods to various people, places, and things tucked away in the game and even though the community at large knows about most of them, I don't think there is a single source anywhere that piles them all together.

Do I really have the balls to write yet ANOTHER Dark Souls blog? Am I that shameless? You know it.

* - RAGE THE CHART ON. I love this series of math blogs, fantastic stuff.

* - Some lovely music choices here. I always a sucker for this kind of blog.

* - Brazen Head takes a well written look at game length. Some great piffy lines in this blog.

A - Kratos, war god of the psychiatric ward.

A - I remember getting my wisdom teeth taken out. The Doc gave me percocet and I took the next day off school to trip through the local Halloween fair, Pumpkinfest. Good times.

A - I'm pretty open minded when it comes to experiment games, but there needs to be a payoff. If you don't have gameplay, don't have mood, and don't have a story, how exactly are you justifying your non-game's existence?

A - Where is Nintendo going? Ryne Sechrist scrys a few predictions in his Wii U controller screen.

A - Price of Persia: The Warrior Within is one of the biggest gaffes I can recall. I've seen franchises go dark and edgy before in a desperate grasp for sales, but I've never seen one jump so far off the deep end. What a shame.

A - I would totally play a fighting game with Ash from Evil Dead, the Xenomorph from Alien, and Arnold doing his Bavarian thing.

A - Voltech takes a look at how many "empowered women" characters seem to be called that because they essentially act like men. Kinda messed up. Personally, I'd like to see deeper characterizations in games for both sexes.

C - Free games! OpiumHerz must be Santa! Either that or Hitler! I don't know, the messaging behind this blog was kind of confusing! But you know, free games!

C - More games? MORE GAMES! Psyforce is an awesome dude.

N - Don't worry folks, Watch_Dogs hasn't been cancelled. You know, unless you own a Wii U.

N - Payday 2 should add a map where you rip off the PokeBank.

R - This review of Wolfenstein (2009) comes up to 6.3/10. I'm not exactly sure what .3 of a score means.

C - This place is looking for volunteer writers, but I didn't get a good vibe from the site... Which he or she forgot to link.

V - A LP of Little Sampson. Looks more than a little like a Capcom game. A little too much "inspiration" maybe.

S - This is Spinal Tap kind of played out the whole fake rockumentary bit.
