C Blogs of 02/25/13 + mcgeeisms

It's good to be back after a week off. Thank you, Phil; you're doing too much. Rest, baby. In my down time, I floated around the internet, and somehow ended up on the Secret Moon Base podcast! It's already up on iTunes, so go subscribe, and listen to me corrode what is usually a good podcast.

I also got some gaming time in here and there. I played the shit out of the Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate demo. Damn I love that game. I think MH Tri was one of the best games of this past gen, which I know some of you have heard before. Now y'all have another chance to enjoy it on 3DS or Wii U with a whole bunch of new stuff. Try out the demo, guys.
I also tried to make some progress in Assassin's Creed 3. I've been going through that one real slow-like. I have pretty mixed feelings about it. Sometimes, I think it's brilliant; sometimes I get bored, or confused. Luckily it feels really good to play. It keeps me going in spots. The naval missions have me coming back for more, too.

Most of the other stuff I want to discuss, I'm sort of trying to put into actual blogs, so It will stay somewhat brief today. I do find the reviews for Tomb Raider very interesting, as I've been pretty positive myself. I like what I heard from previews (pure evil) and they were seemingly spot-on. I had an interesting argument with my brother this morning, though, over the violence. It seemingly gets pretty gruesome in areas. I think it's fine, with the direction they went; being gritty and horrible and rough as shit. Lara takes it out on anyone in her way. He, like some others, thinks it seems a bit out of place and is just there for some extra shock. I look forward to playing, and judging it, myself, and seeing how it shapes up.

RAIDER CAPS


* - Wrenchfarm explains why that "Share" button on the Dualshock 4 makes so much sense.

A - bbain shares with us some of his favorite #PlaystationMemories. Good times, man.

A - The Dead Linger is a first-person zombie roguelike. That...sounds like major potential. nekoryu done showed up to tell us about it. Welcome him with questions & stuff.

A - coffeewithgames has some thoughts and questions about drones. Call of Duty drones, and real ones. What do you think about drones flying about & such?

C - PhilKenSebben is back with a very generous contest, giving out 10 copies of Bit.Trip Presents: Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien for steam. Go win one ASAP!!





T - Bespokemage has been playing Crysis 3 for a bit and gives us some impressions.

R - DanielCampbell gives us a video review of Hotline Miami in preperation for the PS3 & Vita releases.

D - poStudios won an award for their game Cognition! They got an Aggie for best music. What is all that stuff? Go read their blog, dingus.

R - Joe Odran Doran has a good Retrospective Review of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons. I like the idea of seeing how old games hold up, as opposed to just giving them a pass because it was fine "back in the day."

T - Nicky Austin shares his face, as well as his impressions on the PS4 announcements, and Sony's choppy-ass stream. I want to slap the shit out of him for putting his stylus in his mouth, but he earns a non-slap with his writing.

R - Ethan Christopher Clevenger has a review of sorts, and recounts breaking into a new genre with XCOM: Enemy Unknown.







C - This reads like pure copypasta.

F - Jailbreak

F - Brailjake

F - Kablejrake

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Overcoming Fear

We’ve all been there. A game presents us with a moment or situation that fills us with dread. It could be the inexorable approach of a supernatural menace or looking down from the top of an impossibly tall building. Games will play on your fears and push you. But how do you overcome and prevail?

In honor of the ween of hallow and the month of October, the Bloggers Wanted prompt is all about “overcoming your fears in video games.” How did you face the digital demons and pixel poltergeists? Did climbing in Assassin’s Creed make you feel dizzy? Or do underground levels make you feel like you can’t breathe? Everyone has this moment in gaming. You can scoff at the mirror room in Silent Hill 3 but break out into a cold sweat if you see a clown. So what do you do to get past this? Have any tricks of the trade or anecdotes that you’ve picked up along the way? We want to hear about it.

Take us to your moment and how you dealt with that fear. Let us see into your heart and reach out to touch the quiet truth of your words. All you have to do is write your story in the Cblogs and format the title as “Overcoming Fear: [your blog title here].” It's delightfully easy. You may even find your story promoted to the Front Page. That’s always a treat.

You’ve overcome this fear. You have this story, this moment. Why not share it with us? Maybe your story can help someone else overcome their fear.
