C-blogs of 7-02-09 and Qalamarisms
Here's the recaps for tonight. I'm doing the research for YTMND Thursday, but in the interest of getting the recaps live before the date ticks over, I'll edit those in later tonight.
EDIT: All done, hope you enjoy them.
Shang Tsung vs. Michael Jackson.
Maybe I should have put this one at the end.
What would you get if they made a Mystery Science Theatre FPS?
Looks pretty even to me.
Mario ends Luigi.
Is this on Newgrounds yet? Well why not?
Bananas shouldn't go there...
Chris Cornell loves his Wii.
Vladimir Lenin's legal training came in handy.
Is this what life was like before the internet? That's not how I remember it...
And of course, some Random Man Now, dogs.
This is better than the G.I.Joe movie will ever be.
Who leaves a trampoline at the bottom of the stairs?
Rick Moranis' audition for
Geordi LaForge equalizer.
The power of Orange Glo.
Suitcoat Avenger wrote a very nice piece decrying the lack of character development in gaming. The only thing that could have made it any better would be some of his delightful illustrations.
I'm highlighting this as a pristine example of how you turn an enemy into a friend. take a look at the comments here and watch Magnalon work his magic.
Similar to Suitcoat Avenger's central thesis, Jack Maverick calls for more maturity in Mature rated games. What a concept!
Monodi attempts to explain why the
series is awesome. If Pokemon is the
of the 90s, I can't WAIT for the Michael Bay movies of the late 20-teens. (groan)
Gemsi's European release list has nothing terribly exciting this week, unless you're into Tiger Woods.
Norm9 tells a simple yet charming tale of his initiation into the world of gaming, couched in the language of a sexual tryst.
LK404 posted one of the better descriptions I've read of gamer Zen, disguised as a recommendation for
Grid Wars 2.
JT IceFire shares one of his favorite ROM hacks, a total conversion of
Super Mario Bros. 3
. I'm planning on firing this one up as soon as the recaps are in the can.
A thoughtful piece on becoming a Ghoul in
from David Stonecipher. It's copy-pasted from another site, but that doesn't make it a bad read.
SWPM just finished the
games and though he liked them, he had some issues with the ending.
HA HA HA FIREWORKS NEAR THE FOURTH OF JULY I AM SO FUNNY
Blehman posted this week's FNF lineup a bit early due to the holiday weekend. I've still gotta work tomorrow. (Trails off grumbling)
Mbradley1992 kicked off a poopstorm by questioning the tendency to be harsh on failblogs. My two cents are about halfway down the comments.
Toadster is an engineer for Intel, and loves him some TF2. Welcome to Destructoid.
Happy birthday to Halfleft. What do a frog, a monkey, and a half naked man have in common?
Happy birthday as well to King3vbo. BigPopaGamer puts the T & A in birThdAy.
Nihontiger90 found evidence of a crossover between the frantic action of
Team Fortress 2
and the simulation of events based on dice manipulation. My Soldier rolls 20s.
Tavendale wrote up a nice review of
If goblins playing football is relevant to your interests, have a look.
Mbradley 1992 wrote sort of a review for
I was considering picking this up as a discount title, but now I'm glad I didn't.
Why isn't the new Monkey Island game being made in 2D? Why are so few games made in 2D anymore? SurplusGamer gives you the lowdown.
This retro review by Molotov Cupcake examines a lesser known Game Gear RPG called
Defenders of Oasis.
VeksandSilence gives us an inside look at Survival mode in the Xbox game they're programming.
Trev breaks down the recently released
for people who (like myself) are terrible at 2D fighting games.
WalkYourPath's review of
somehow manages to reference Madonna, Judge Judy, and Burke from
completely organically. If the game is as entertaining as this review, it may end up on some GOTY lists.
Unangbangkay also gives his review of
... I really need to man up and finish the first one.
Silverdragon1979 wrote a Sterlingesque (Or perhaps Wardroxesque) post taking
Final Fantasy 7 & Metal Gear Solid
to task for having the GALL not to feature dinosaurs.
I just spent wayyyy too long looking up the enemies list for FF7 to try and prove him wrong. The T-rex I remembered was in FF8, I guess.
Hey, gotta start somewhere. Smasher Imp is learning the Python language. See here the fruits of his labors.
instead of going to the prom. Good choice.
Another copy-paste article from David Stonecipher. This one deals with the special infected from
Left 4 Dead.
And one more from the same site by another user, Pamela Blalock. This deals with virtual fishing in MMOs. I submit that there is no activity less conducive to entertainment than pretend fishing with pretend alcohol.
AaronF lets those without PS3s know about a pretty not-bad deal.
JoeCamNet is selling off some of his massive collection of games and gaming paraphernalia. Make an offer on some classics.
I think we can all pretty much agree that Uwe Boll is the worst thing to happen to cinema since Leni Reifenstahl. Discarded Couch Sandwich watched
Alone in the Dark
so you don't have to.
TeknoDwarf was bored and made a list of 73 potential Harry Potter titles. Scary Womanizing Pig Mask responded with a fantastic dick joke and won everything, forever.
Crunshii shares one of the slickest iPhone cases I've yet laid eyes on.
Super Saiyan 18 calls for more pettiness and fanboy horsewaste in the form of mascot war. I'm sure leaving a lot of negative blog comments today.
I dunno, just looks like another
post to me...
I'll be saying this a lot today, but this could really use a little more effort.
While the effort to share some news is commendable, a little polish would have helped this post out immensely.
Clean up, grammar check, extend, expound, etc.
This could have been a proper review, but something this short is really more suited to the forums.
Um, 'K. Why?
Ok. I gave you guys a pass on the other Examiner reposts, but if you're going to do it at least reformat the articles for this site. There are no pictures "on the left."
I usually don't fail intro posts. Usually.
