Shut up, it's my meme and I'm gettin' some mileage outta it!
So, yeah, Steam Trading Cards
. Am I the only person leaving games on in the background just to get their card drops? Didn't think so. It's horribly addictive, Steam is becoming more and more a meta-game itself, though I guess some brilliant guy had seen it coming
It's a great time to pick up normally overpriced DLC, like the minor Tomb Raider and Borderlands 2 stuff. Decided to rob that one last DLC tomb with Lara, while wearing her DLC vest... while waiting for trading card drops...
Of course, no DLC outfit can compete with one inspired by Jem & The Holograms
. The pop-culture references just don't stop with Borderlands 2.
Just realized that I am basically playing with virtual Barbie dolls
. But they have guns, so that makes them action figures
and besides you
play with fake trading cards so DON'T JUDGE ME!
So on to your Re-Faps. Uhhh I mean Re-Caps. Yeah.
BulletMagnet explores his huge backlog of RPGs in this long, possibly NSFW photo spectacular.I could only skim due to being in a public place atm, but if you like neckbeards, body hair, and classic RPG boxes you can't go wrong with this blog. (seriously, how can you NOT check it out after that description?) P - Scary Granules Podcast Episode 15: Attack of the Stevil! - They talk about video games. Because that is what they DO man.
You think sales and trading cards are bad? It could be worse... S - Animal Crossing New Leaf - Alphadeus shows us the scary degree of his obsession with ACNL... but also offers some seriously generous help to other Dtoid players. If you play ACNL you should read this. R - The Last of Us: TroyFullbuster discusses problems he had with The Last of Us, and why he feels it's been overrated. T - Women and Gaming - Solid Boss makes some interesting bobservations about how women are used in promoting more than games. It raises some interesting questions, don't miss his discussion with Elsa in the comments. $ - Far Cry 3 for $20 at Walmart - Agent9 lets us know that some Walmarts MAY have a great deal on this great game. Yes that is a real thing that exists. I took the pic. The end of civilization nears. R - Twinkies - Spieler Dad rejoices at the return of the Twinkie. "What could possibly be less cool than socks and sandals?" "Challenge accepted."
Sorry for the late 'caps, a mix of trading card obsession and crippling depression conspired to make today not-so-productive.
