LONG BLOG

C-blogs of 10-12-09 and Timewarpisms

   0




Cast your mind back 48 hours, gentle reader. It seems so long ago, does it not? A simpler time. A time before Brutal Legend & Uncharted 2. A time before internet fanboys got pissy about the reviews for the aforementioned games.

We do apologize for the lack of service over the last couple of days. There was a misunderstanding at Recap headquarters, magnified by an uncharacteristically heavy storm that knocked out my internet service. Shan't happen again.


*-Walkyourpath channeled Sir James of Sterling when writing this writeup of the finest game of his generation. Don't stop believing.
*-Y0j1mb0's semi-response to Megastryke's post about immersion is well worth a look.
*-It's rare that Scary Womanizing Pig Mask writes a blog, but when he does the results are worth the wait. This analysis of Giygas is mindboggling.
*-Canti-Sama's list of gaming pet peeves is something I think we can all relate to. Wil Wheaton said it, and Jesus agrees: Don't be a dick.
*-Sheppy's fast becoming one of my favorite bloggers around here. This piece on why Epic Mickey won't necessarily suck on the Wii is another reason why.
*-Kauza's piece about status effects has already been promoted, so you know it's good.


A-Covah went in-depth on some of the major upcoming releases. Even with everything getting pushed into 2010, this year's still looking goddamn expensive.
S-Nihontiger90 broke tradition by telling you what to get. Just kidding, as usual, he asked What'd You Get?
M-CWal37's Musing doesn't quite fit the mold, but it's a personal story of exploration and life apart from pixels and polygons.
S-Tanukitsune crossed Resident Evil 5 off his backlog list.
P-Failcast episode 49 is now available.
P-Drunkcast recorded on Monday.


C-Don't forget, you can win an assortment of Lucasarts-themed prizes for showing your art chops to the Destructoid Artisans.
W-This is pretty cool. Remember the Soapbox car TheBigFeel built that won the Red Bull Derby? Double Fine noticed and invited him to the Brutal Legend launch party.


C-While calibrating the lag on his new setup, LK404 had an epiphany about how much fun it can be to be silly.
I-Fructose introduced herself with a writeup of the DJ Hero demo stations now available at your local Best Buy. Welcome to Destuctoid.


N-Boatz beat the front page with this list of the Left 4 Dead 2 achievements.
N-More about the L4D2 cheevos.
N-while you once had a choice in the matter, that will end soon-- all World of Warcraft accounts will need to be merged with Battle.net before the month is out.
T-Unangbangkay had some early thoughts on Uncharted 2.
T-Lachlan Watts yearns for simplicity.
T-Jade Empire is making Tgammet violent.
R-Nogarda reviewed the South Park tower defense game.
R-A 20-year-old review of Castlevania courtesy of Solid Boss.
P- The not-quite-an-MMO Love is in early testing, and Snoogans775 is letting us in on all the good stuff.


M-It's Senisan82's turn behind the turntables for this week's dTunes. To start, a lot of great game-inspired metal.


L-How do you advertise Destructoid on a dating site? Here's how.
R-Something about Street Fighter? I guess? Maybe?
?-This post by Wry guy has several topics, including a challenge to the community and a call for entrants into a KOF tournament.
C-I don't like the tone of this blog. It's unnecessarily confrontational.
C-A link to an article on another site is generally a taboo, but at least there's an explanation and some additional words here.
?-Cool story, bro.


Well done, ladies and gents. Doughnut holes for everyone!
