LONG BLOG

C-blogs of 01-22-09 and ScottyGasms

   0

After reading RiotMonster's cblog, I have to ask a question to the community (staff too if you read this): How many of you see your games like this? As things you just have to play though so you can get to the next one, and check off another line on a list. Do you find it impedes on your enjoyment of the game, and gaming in general? Or do you prefer the sense of accomplishment at having played/beaten that many games?

It's pretty darn late and I NEED some sleep (FNF is going to be tough...), but hopefully I'll make a full cblog around that question Friday or Saturday. Think about the question though, and how you play your games.

Also, it's good to see the Dtoid forums will be back up and running soon. I was just starting to get back into them too when they went down. As is always the case with a forum redesign, I'm scared that they will just over complicate things by making a ton of sub-forums, one for every conceivable subject.


*- Serendipity experiences the joy of online PC gaming with TF2. Now pay attention to my cblog for TFT/FNF updates!
*- That brought back some old wrestling memories. Never followed much outside of North America sadly until shortly before I stopped following it
*- The finale of Tehmtnlion's "genuinely scary story"! Make sure to read the previous installments first!


S- Newest episode of HAWP is out. Good to see that after a lull they're getting funny again
S- BSD's latest shirt, of Dtoid fame. I never got any stickers when I ordered my Dtoid shirts... :'(
S- This time around watch michiyoyoshiku play Metal Slug 6
P- Latest episode of The College Gamer podcast
S- Mikey draws Topher and Miku playing SoM... I never bothered or cared to learn who Miku is aside from the brief times I'm on Topher's cblog
S- Latest installment of dTunes, and Ron needs suggestions! Prince songs are recommended


C- Weapon of Choice speed run contest details


S- RiotMonster seems to think playing games is work and not fun
C- squirrelyg asks for game rec-HOLYSHITISTHATANOBAMAACTIONFIGUREWITHAGUNANDASWORD!!!!
S- Nick Chester gives us an update on the case of the missing Dtoid forums
S- Grim needs to dream less about the forums and more about his hot wife. Also, he's friends with himself :S
C- Krow asks what game he should finally beat next. I say he's a god damn failure at life until he's beaten Super Mario World. Would you agree? ;)
S- Phalanxxx realizes iPods are fragile, overpriced pices of crap. Thankfully no real loss as it eventually started working again
S- Technophile spoils the surprise about the new forums, much to Hamza's chagrin
S- Awww, dude... some saleman saw your friend coming a mile away
S- Baby pictures, health scares, and Thornnn actually with some clothes on


N- Gemsi informs us on this week's EU releases
V- VG Spoofs episode. Not bad, kind of funny, obviously amateur filming, and a mullet. There are far worse ways to spend 10 minutes
R- Fadecy gives thoughts on a Killzone 2 review and a his own review of Mirror's Edge. Clance counters with some great advice
T- Thouhgts on Metal Slug by michiyoyoshiku
N- The bearer of bad news, NihonTiger informs us that MS and Sony are cutting a lot of jobs :'(
T- Personally I just didn't like Metroid Prime 3. Some of the mechanics like the near insta-death rain bugged me
R- Daysocks (aka: Not-Superflossy :p) is hooked on Picross DS
T- Cup of Cocoa notices how a game's bugs make higher difficulty levels all the worse
T- Qraze gives some handy tips on caring for your PS3
N- Damnit NihonTiger, stop with the gaming-related firings already! :'(


S- VGMari get's some nice buys, including a Menacer which I don't even remember
A- Free Touch improves on a Halo 3 figurine with a bad-ass paint job


R- Half Left plays with Google's suggest search feature
L- BSD informs us on how to mess with programmable road signs


F- Not only a copy/pasta blog (which I thought were kind of copyright infringement), but pasta'd twice...
C- A copy/pasta blog that throws out some serious accusations with little supporting facts. Regardless of validity that's a fail cblog in my book
S- Awesome yet terrifying L4D Macho Man mod. Has been posted many times though
F- Fail blog, but even more fail comments. Kudos to Garison for not being a pile of wank though

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
New Years Evil

So for this month's prompt, we should look to our best examples of scum and villainy. Talk about your favorite antagonists, villains, bad guys, and malcontents and why you like them so much. Certainly not because you want to be like them since the powers of law and order are probably keeping a close and watchful eye on us. But you know, hypothetically, if I were to recommend my own personal favorite villain, it might be Manfred Von Karma from Ace Attorney. The guy is irredeemably terrible, believing in not just results no matter the cost, but also a total disdain for nearly everyone around him since they most likely aren't as perfect as him.

For January's bloggers wanted prompt, just create a new community blog, start the title with "New Year's evil: [your blog title here]" and tell us about your favorite villains.

From the terrible like Flowey, to forces of nature like Gigyas. Go ham! We won't judge you since we're talking in hypotheticals. As long as we're talking about bad guys since Yoshikage Kira wasn't bad. Kira just wanted to live a peaceful life. He just happened to be a serial killer, you know?
