C-Blogs of 1-18-10 and Qalamarisms



I'll keep it simple.




*-While they may have the nicest beaches in the world, Australian gamers get shafted while trying to enjoy their favorite pastime. You may be able to make a small difference with the push of a button.
*-RandomBullseye knows two things: you never go full retard, and that there are games that are worth playing, even years after their release.
*-BulletMagnet's brilliant blog offset the big pile o' fail you'll see cloggin' up the bottom of the page. Expect to see this promoted quicklike.


A-Kwazy Nate's essay on Shadow of the Colossus made me want to play it again. Not too hard to get me in that state, mind you.
M-Animated Toupee's Musing channels both Helen Lovejoy and MegaStryke. Definitely worth a look.
S- Darthix's 52 game-a-week challenge continues the Valve love by playing through Half-Life 2.




Jay deserves all this and more, in my humble opinion. I'll never watch Leno again.


E-DtoidNorthwest (that's Seattle and Vancouver) are having a NARP coming up soon. DtoidSF is formally invited.
D-Speaking of whom, for those who are slightly closer to Fogtown than I am, DtoidSF can now be followed on both Facebook and Twitter.
S-And on a related topic, DtoidSF had a NARP on Saturday. Here are the pictures... looks like a lot of fun!
S-And more pictures here, courtesy of Agius. That's it. Next one of these happens, I'ma be there.


N-Fatal Frame fans are almost as dedicated as Earthbound devotees. And they have to be, 'cause Nintendo of Everywhere Except Japan aren't really looking out for them.
N-The Mega Man series has always been one of my favorites, so the news that Capcom will be releasing a DS cartridge with all four Mega Man Zero games on it made me smile.
N-Stevil brings word that Deadly Premonition has released a new Japanese trailer.
N- And word of yet another MW2 hack now infecting a 360 near you. Play with caution... or a PS3, advises Volomon.
N-de BLOO thinks a collector's edition for Super Street Fighter 4 may be forthcoming.
P-HBL shares his thoughts on Capcom's Dark Void demo.
P-Bigby's been playing in the Star Trek Online beta, and this is his journal... a captain's log, if you will.
P-Edco returns to the blogs after a long absence with his impressions of the Modnation Racers beta on the PS3.
R-George Churchill and his hetero life partner tackled Army of Two: The 40th Day on the hardest difficulty. Here's what they experienced.
R-Xelviar shares his thoughts on Darksiders.
R-Son of Bacon Sandwich reviewed a game many others are passing over-- Sands of Destruction, an RPG by the same team who did Xenogears.
T-BilboFraggins has a great name and an interesting question: what games do you think are overrated?
T-BigMex mused about a potentially great concept for a game going back in time in the Street Fighter universe.
T- Leogeo2 loves the music game genre, even though he admits its beginning to stagnate.
T-VGFreak1225 thinks Gunstar Heroes might have been onto something.


M- Zeta Crossfire listed five of his favorite tunes from gaming's past. Good choices, IMO.
S-The Aliens Vs. Predator collectors edition looks appropriately badass. Confession: I first read this blog title as "AP Stylebook." That's what journalism classes will do to you, I s'pose.


L-Crunshii shows off the first look at the Wii's game of the Year contender for 2011.
R-Do ESRB ratings need spoiler tags now? Sebastian Paul Lopez seems to think so.
C-While I'm glad your plea for assistance did not fall on deaf ears, this really would be more appropriate in the forums.
C-Yes, the Legion ads are annoying. But to paraphrase Niero, bandwidth isn't free and servers don't grow on trees. Also, this is a more appropriate length for a forum topic.


F-This was the first blog of the day. And a fine way to start, let me tell you.
F-Yeah. You can hide this, now.
F-Jeez. There a full moon tonight or something?
F-Look, I'd give you a break on this one but your entire oeuvre makes it seem like you're the kind of self-important 12 year old I spend time avoiding in online games.
F-Do you really think anyone is gonna click through your link to read your review? Is your estimation of your own opinion that out of whack?
F-Strike two. Warm up the banhammer.
F-Really? Are you this spoiled and entitled that you're gonna leave a website you claim to love over advertising? Well, fine then, who needs YOU?
F-This is the first time I've ever had to add more slots to the failtoid tag. I weep for all humanity.

Whew. I need something to cleanse the palette after all that fail, don't you? Good thing the inestimable Kauza had this cooked up, isn't it?


<3 you, Kauz. You too, Jennifer.
