MMMMMMMMMMMMMMONDAAAAAAY. What's going on 'Toiders? How is this fine Monday evening treating you? I hope well! Not a huge blog day (not complaining) today. I wonder of people are just waiting for a certain game to release/pre-load...Hmmmmmm...

Personally, I really want to play it, but will have to just Gamefly it for now. Blame Monster Hunter. This week, I've sort of floated back into Skyrim, and boy do I enjoy that game. Some of the quests are just so well-crafted. And the world is just...well; you know. It's been out for awhile. I'm probably gonna grab that Hearthfire real soon.
Besides the obvious way-too-much MH3U, I also rented Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. I was worried that the game wouldn't be "Metal Gear" enough, but so far I am pleased. Platinum is delivering bigtime. In gameplay and story. I am so freaking happy it's hard to articulate. It gets the official smurfee mcgee Stamp Of Approval, as a matter of fact. It's beautimous, the combat is deep and satisfying, Raiden is a still a wonderful mirror/Greek tragedy of gaming, the music is terribad but makes sense, sombrero, wolf cyborgs, German scientists, VR atrocities... AHHHHHHH. I recommend it strongly/10.

So, uh, it's hard to write much right now. All I can seem to think aboiut is The Master. Have you seen that? Like, wow, man. /Flixist

I'm almost ramblin'. Lets do the tasty-ass ReCAPS.



* - habslove gives some good tips for buying stuff without being a dickface. Follow these tips, dickface.

P - The Audile Protagonist Episode 9: The James Franco of geek culture. How can you resist that title?

P - Communitoid episode 10. Who doesn't love a good sausage-fest?!? NOT ME! Wait...

A - Gamemaniac3434 discusses the savior of the Vita: Indie games! I think "savior" is a REALLY strong term, but It's one of the few positives about the Vita lately.



S - Chris Carter was busy playing freaking everything at PAX East, and while he was gone, his wife redecorated in an awesome fashion!

E - CyricZ has a postload of cosplay pics hot off the PAX East floor.

V - Final Fantasy X HD & X-2 HD get a trailer! Hype?

R - A review for a great PS3 exclusive: Yakuza 3.

D - POstudios has some nice behind-the-scenes stuff to show. Concept art-->Final product kinda stuff.

T - TheKodu notices...an absence of male villains in games with female leads. Wut

T - nilcam is finally getting into Skyword Sword, and details some of his conflicting emotions.

T - Sahfriendly thinks the Tomb Raider reboot was successful and I agree!

T - Vault91 thinks we deserve better. Better meaning more variety in protagonists, in this case. Good job, money.



V - Jonathan Holmes, after all his interviews, is still clearly baffled by a microphone. The good news is, you can now make this interview about anything! Get to it!

R - I would fail this if it weren't for Chaco Tacos & Tacate. And Dale North & Niero & Atlus & I don't wanna get banned & stuff.

C - N0Gil has some quick thoughts on HD remakes. Spoilers: It's possibly cynical.

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.
