LONG BLOG

C-Blogs of 07/01/14 + Late Wrenchisms

   0




Sorry for the late caps! It was Canada day on Tuesday so i went and did Canadian stuff (drinking beer, chopping wood, holding open doors, etc) and on Wednesday I went to go see a live stage production of Welcome To Night Vale at the beautiful Elgin theatre in Toronto. It was a hell of a mid-week weekend and I had a great time.

I'd like to talk about some videogame things, but I'm late enough as it is. If you aren't doing anything else this afternoon, maybe check out this blog I wrote about Risk: Legacy back on Friday. Risk: Legacy is a super cool game with a deft mastery of design and vision. If you're really into "game design" as a thing (and I bet you are since you're the kind of Morlock who reads the C-Blogs) you need to check it out, you'll learn something about yourself as a player and what makes games interesting.

* - Dead Nation sounds like a bummer.

A - Saint's Row is nothing if not honest. The game and characters are what they are with no pretention.

A - Germany is still super weird about it's censorship rules. Guts, limbs, and haircuts?

A - Mojang is laying down the law on grubby Minecraft pay-to-play servers.

N - Ouya is doing a thing.

R - Shovelknight looks spectacular, it's just a matter of when I pick it up.

C - A giant wall of text where a living, breathing thesaurus mopes about his grim dissatisfaction with gaming. Marvel as he openly anticipates being disappointed by a game he hasn't even played yet for vague, pretentious reasons. Please everyone, writing like you're an 18th century Count Chocula doesn't make you seem intelligent or interesting, it's just annoying.

F - Fuck off.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Turning Japanese
Japanese culture is everywhere in video games, not to mention that Japanese developers always seem to put their own spin on a game. What does Japan mean to your favorite games?
