C Blogs of 03/25/13 + mcgeeisms


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 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.
