LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 01/29/13 + Wrenchisms

   0


Man, I've got nothing today. I'm still getting over the massive response to my Dark Souls blog the other day. I'm extremely grateful to everyone who commented saying they liked it or could relate to it. Whenever you put something personal out, there is always a terrible fear that NOBODY will be able to relate to it and you'll just look crazy. Gotta say I'm glad that didn't happen.

Quick hits -



I finally got around to watching the first season of Archer. Holy shit. I've become a little jaded towards Adult Swim's self-referential shock humour style, but something about Archer tickled me just right. The vaguely unspecific Jet-Age+cellphones+USSR timeframe taps into my deep love of the Venture Bros and TF2. The fact that Lucile Bluth from Arrested Development is essentially a character in the show doesn't hurt. Plus I remember when the guy who does Archer's voice was Coach McGuirk on Home Movies. Good times.



My girlfriend introduced me to BadLipReadings on YouTube. I've wasted WAY too much time watching them.



Mechwarrior Online announced a new Hero Mech! It's a specialized version of my favourite chassis the Awesome! But- where are the nipple lasers? What's with the Orange County Chopper paint job? I DON'T PILOT AWESOMES TO FLING MISSILES. I PILOT AWESOMES TO SUCKLE THE ENEMY WITH MY PEWPEW BREASTS. Why is this so hard to understand?

* - Strider loves him some ME3 multiplayer. But just like the single player game, sometimes its tough to get everyone to play nice with each other.

A - People just want more from their $60 XBL subscription fee these days. Seems to be a hot topic.

A - It's not the game, it's the hypocrisy.

P - I want to listen to an entire podcast about Glam Rock Princesses now.

A - A blog discussing the distinction between sex used as a marketing device and sex used as subject matter, and how frequent the former is compared to the latter in the game industry. Some fine points... and a distressing number of references to Lolita and Moe anime girls.

R - Neat! Context Insensitive sounds like a fun little game. I'll have to check it out.

R - A video review for the new Legendaries update. I have to admit, I don't know ANYTHING about this game.

T - Some succinct thoughts about the future of console gaming.

R - DanielCampbell shares his video review for the lucid dream phenomenon known as The Real Texas.

F - A webshow about videogame culture by Skribble.

F - The should have bought the extension, Adobe After Effects 2000 and 1-Winged Angel.

C - Kinda spammy, kinda earnest.

R - A small news update and a bit of opinion on demo "betas."

? - This blog touched me in the bad place.

S - How bout a big bag of leaked spoilers for a game that hasn't even come out? Now with zero commentary or opinion!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Schooled

Gather round boys and girls! School may be back in session, but you should still have a bit of time left to skirt your responsibilities and write some damn blogs!

In the true spirit of the classroom, this month’s Bloggers Wanted prompt is all about “things that video games have taught you.” Whether you want to write about a specific skillset you’ve acquired, love (or hate…) for a genre, game design, music composition, edutainment games, general life lessons, or even delve into more abstract territory…. As long as you’ve learned something, even if you didn’t realize it at the time, I want to fucking hear about it!

The world is your goddamn oyster here! All you have to do is slap some words together and format the title as “Schooled: [your blog title here].” It’s that fucking easy, folks! If your blog is up to snuff, it might even get promoted to the Front Page!

Don’t hold out on me, people! I read everything over in the Cblogs. I’ll know if you’re playing hooky this month, and I will look at you with sad puppy eyes if you let me down.
