Not much to talk about this week. I've still been playing both Skies of Arcadia and Risk of Rain. Skies is turning out to be a looooong game (not a bad thing, necessarily). I'm making progress, but very slowly. As for Risk of Rain, I've beaten it several times and unlocked every character, but there's still one achievement that I haven't gotten because I'm terrible with the Sniper. Not that you really have to use the Sniper to get the 5,000 damage achievement, but it seems to be the easiest way. For some reason, I just hate seeing that I only have one achievement left to get in a game... I'm so close!
Also, about the recaps this week: I feel a little bad about the fail section. I really like the idea behind Musicians Wanted, and I'm sure it will lead to some very beautiful things, but it definitely seems to inspire lazy blog writing. For anyone reading this that plans on submitting something for Musicians Wanted: please, PLEASE add a bit of text to your blog to go along with your music. Tell us about yourself! Tell us about the piece you created! What influenced your decision? Why did you choose a particular game/musical style? I guess it's not required to write anything for the topic, but it definitely makes your blog more approachable and interesting, and it will surely get more people to listen to your music.
Anyway, that's all I've got for you today. Keep writing blogs and making sweet music!

F - This person at least gave us a bit of info, however... I can't figure out what the song has to do with gaming at all. I suspect they're just promoting their band with a random song?
