C Blogs of 04/27, 04/28 & 04/29 '13 + mcgeeisms

Lots of great blogs the past few days. It was another hard-to-pick Topsauce cap. This triple cap was sort of unexpected so apologies for the lateness and lack of -isms. How about a video or two instead?

* - A critique of Bioshock Infinite from Frohike. Very good stuff.

* - jebussaves88 writes about how there's nothing to write about when it comes to modern racing games. Where is the soul?

* - The first 'official' entry in the new series: Save State. This one is all about The Darkness. Specifically, the relationship between Jackie & Jenny. (Save State is an homage to Chad Concelmo's Memory Card. It's a community-based series, so if you want to join in, contact the Save State account.)

* - Alder B Dash introduces himself properly. And I do mean properly. Also, cocks.

A - MacManus remembers. He's not the only one, either. "Controversy" after "controversy" is the trend sure, but it doesn't mean we should just let it all go. We should remember.

A - dagiarrat is in love with Bioshock Infinite's artists, but not so much with the gameplay designers.

P - Taco Tuesdays extrasode 4: an interview with Johnson.

A - Vault91 and the defeat of sexism in gaming by the internet.

A - Meaningful or insane, BlinkingPixels wants you to deliver his poison with conviction.

P - Pocketoid gets on about Harmoknight, Slayin', Etrian Odyssey IV, and more portable stuff!

P - Johnny Fournier brings us: The Nerd Unemployed. A new podcast aimed at offering advice (and cautionary tales) for getting into these here nerd industries.

A - Echidna asks a most important question: Why the hell does he still like Sonic the hedgehog?!?

A - michealarby wrote a paper on piracy. Is piracy as bad as some claim? Or is it a force for good?

A - vlesditor has a lengthy read on feminist theory and videogames, using Earthbound as a discussion point.

A - Mikki Saturn talks about the seeming death, or at least scale back, of E3. (BTW I believe Nintendo WILL still have a conference of some sort. It's not quite clear yet.)

A - TheDustinThomas has noticed a parallel in between his gaming and his life.

A - Neshoba78 gets in on the hot topic at hand. Words like: boobs, politically incorrect, sexualization, etc. are used. Are 'we' making an issue where there is none? For a blog with "breasts" and "incest" in the title, there's a woeful lack of pics.

A - Scrustle doesn't feel the worlds' soul. How does this happen? Did it happen at all? Is he just feeling nostalgia?

S - Alasdair is still working on that backlog. He completed some games, and has voting up for us to decide one game he'll be playing this month.

S - amxwolf has a new MWHA for Luigi's Mansion and it's fabulous music.

A - ThatDocktorGirl writes this one for LowerTierPodcast about The Evil Within, and horror games in general. Weigh in with some favorites of yours, and your hopes for The Evil Within.

A - vlesditor has one about CivCity: Rome, and how educational it may or may not be.

C - AndyLonn contemplates just how he should do reviews for older games, which is always a bit of a conundrum. Got some advice for him?

C - TheToiletDuck is calling for Dtoiders from anywhere & everywhere to fill out his survey. It's for a blog about our culture & shit.

I - Toadeh introduces himself and his super special 3DS.

T - PhantomTommy has been playing Monaco, and...he can't fucking see.

R - Cyrus reviews Tales of Xillia 2. Can you say "party member?"

T - A decade of EVE Online. Wow! Not an easy feat. PIR tells us what's to come for EVE's future.

T - CommandZ thinks God Of War: Ascension is in love with itself. Do you?

R - Fyoomp has a scathing review of Mighty Switch Force.

R - Asterion reviews The Cat and the Coup.

T - Vincentlovescatherine think Call Of Duty is the worst game/franchise ever. I get it, but don't agree and I think the reasons are a bit cloudy.

T - segastardust has some mixed feelings about Black Ops II.

T - TroyFullbuster is a whiny bitch thinks DKCR3D getting an easy mode is the filthy casuals taking away our fun.

P - Bloodr0se has a nice write-up about Beyond: Two Souls, from the Tribeca Film Festival.

T - SinclairVox thinks you probably haven't played Lost Eden. It's got a talking, psychic parasaurolophus, so...maybe you should?

T - JackSlack thinks the ladies of gaming should have their Poker Night game. But who would star in such a game?? Weigh in for Poker Night 3: Ladies Night.

T - PlayBoyMan has a short response to "In Defense of Boobies."

T - Vault91 has a top 10 list for boxart from this generation.

T - domanz has a lot of love to give to Dark Souls.

T - dannybazooka thinks we might be expecting a bit too much from our games.

R - Adam P reviews Slender: The Arrival and seems pretty keen on it.

L - Johnel Lance breaks down some comics with a rant. I'm slightly lost.

V - Johnel Lance expresses his singular emotional reaction to the Sarah Palmer art for the comic series. Can you guess what it is? CAN YOU??

V - Considering even I missed the Fapcast, I don't think GlowBear needed to punish herself. BUT, she did it anyway. After writing a message on XBL (with the 360 controller! Punishment enough, I think) about it.

? - Do you know what my family would think of me if they knew I didn't really speak much Spanish at all?

L - Zombie Orwell gets his parody on.

F - RPGgrinders episode 239. Can you feel the role-playing excitement? I don't think I can.

F - NO. I cannot accept the truth within.

F - Alexander Diarmuid Southby Stone is a cool name. But just signing up, dropping a vid without introducing yourself or writing anything at all? Not the coolest.

F - Spammer extraordinaire and video maker JordanLloyd looks at another obscure arcade game.
