LONG BLOG

CBlogS o' 9/23/13 + MacMangasms - Humanity... Are you there? Edition

   0


Are you there world?



It seems like it's been so long. Last thing I knew I got GTA V in the mail and then BAM! It's been a week.

I was as skeptical as they came when GTA V was being hyped up. I didn't like IV and to be perfectly honest, I hadn't finished San Andreas. [probably because I only got halfway through the campaign and then skydove (is that the right past-tense??) till I was tired of it.] 



I don't think I've been this hooked on a game since Arkham City. I love it. I absolutely love to the point where I'm really surprised with how much I enjoy it. I still haven't reached the end yet and I hope the story ends well.

Now granted I don't think it's a perfect game. The torture scene really left a bad taste in my mouth. If  they were trying to go for satire or a laugh, it didn't really click with me. I'll probably have more on the story when I actually finish the game. 



[SPOILERS AND THE ALERT OF SUCH THINGS]
What I really enjoy about the game is the brought back the blend of seriousness and goofiness that I appreciated in the earlier games. You can drive a tank, shoot aliens, Franklin talks to a dog, really hitting all the checkmarks for me. And Lazlow from Chatterbox is back! And you get tattoo a dick on his chest! Great stuff.

So what do you guys think about it? I hate to admit I haven't paid much attention to what the community has been saying about the game, let alone anything in the outside world.

* - Highly enjoyed this piece on what the success of GTA V can tell us about gaming right now.

A - Dupreey confesses his review score infatuations.

A - Some PS3 first impressions for you. Interesting to see something like this at the end of the console's life.

M - Oxy is pretty upset about the Dexter finale. I quit watching around Season 3 but man... that sounds like a terrible ending.

A - NVGRy is also upset about Dexter. Loved your fourth suggestion of how it could have ended. Brilliant!

A - Interesting thoughts on why a game's attach rate doesn't matter in the land of third parties.

S - Another enthralling edition of the backlog.

Also, what is this??


T - Shuuda-ee with a Golden Sun retrospective for you. Good stuff.

T - A fine guide to Metal Gear Part 2

T - Joey talks Saturn 9. Don't know how I missed this game

N - Say it ain't so Rockstar!

L - Titty wrote a radio play Monster Hunter. I don't know enough about the series to appreciate it, but still pretty cool!

L - "BIAS"

F - Just a video link.

It's been a fine day for blogs!
