LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 02/11/13 + mcgeeisms

   0


Another Monday in this short month has come to get you! There's been a lot of discussion all up in the C blogs, as well as the front page, and I must say: it makes for some good readin'. So first off: thank you. I don't have a lot of time to finish up my -isms today, so I just wanted to get that out of the way. It's been a good day to read Destructoid.
The folks participating in the Blogger's Wanted topic are especially engaging. Y'all made my Monday.

Blech. Short isms, unfortunately. I'll make up for it with pics! Maybe.
CAPSSPAC


For Shade


* - Revuhlooshun gives us a great read about Siren, and makes a point, very well, about suspense VS surprise. God bless Hitchcock. (Holy shit front page already!!)

* - Capitalistpig (another new one!) draws some parallels between Dead Space and Alien. I love it!

* - Historicnerd gives us a look at Missile Command and its seemingly biggest influence: The Cold War. Good video, Historicnerd!

M - Our newest Blogger's Wanted topic is yielding some fine results. Panzadolphin56's entry focuses on a game I've never heard of before, called Hellnight.

A - GlowBear has some wise words about Ostracisation. Even within already ostracized groups. She also makes me feel better with a Maya Rudolph gif.

M - cmstrott (he's a new guy) has dealt with hallucinations throughout part of his life, and videogames have helped him deal with them.

M - DaviesAntony is obviously a big fan of being afraid. He believes that the genre will always have something for us.

M - Dreamweaver makes a really good case that co-op can actually be scary!

M - yourbelovedpariah has a run in with a very familiar fear. Deep into that darkness peering, long he stood there wondering, fearing, doubting...

M - Fallout 3 was at times, a nice & scary game. For L3ED, it hit pretty close to home.

S - Carbon64 has another entry in his VS series. This time it's a couple of arcade legends: Super Street Fighter II VS Mortal Kombat II.

A - EdgyDude thinks about Nintendo's Wii U strategy a lot more than the typical commenter. This one may get you thinking.









T - Osga21 thinks we're about due for another game industry crash. I won't disagree; if the industry keeps going the way it is, without changing, it's almost assured.

T - levelseeker has a well-written non-review of Forza Horizon. He wasn't quite as keen on it as some people. Read on.

T - Spencer Hayes gives me flashbacks of a Memetoid gone horribly wrong some time ago. Thankfully, this is better. Are you happy, ShadeOfLight? Time to start claming your Pokemon while you can!!

P - SeymourDuncan fucking gets a goddamn hammergun boner.









F - She's just a girl and she's on fiiyyaaaaaaaa

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?
