C-Blogs of 1-11-10 and Qalamarisms


If you're wondering why today's 'caps are more than 24 hours late, well, you can blame that all on me. Or mostly anyway. I was all ready to do `em last night when the server gave me a mysterious "HTTP 500 Internal Server Error." Any time after it came up though? That's all on me. I'm not clever like MegaStryke is, so no theme for this catch-up recap tonight I'm afraid. Wait... Catch-up? Catsup? Ketchup? Hell, I'm tired enough that that can be the theme.

*-Handy applied SCIENCE! to that most curious of beasts, the professional videogame reviewer. I do believe Tactix would approve.
*-Stevil's Musing reiterates that the only constant in this life is uncertainty.
*-I really liked this blog from goretexfogg, who played through an older game with a fresh perspective due to some familial influence.
*-KillMyEgo has been practicing using Maya, and came up against a familiar face.
*-Awesome Ex Machina raises a great point in his Monthly Musing... where do we go from here?

A-Prolifikstudio has been playing COD: MW2 in 3rd person mode, and offers some pointers for any who'd like to try it.
A-Lord the Night Knight thinks the Wii remake of Dead Rising could do with a makeover.
M-Super Saiyan 19 fears for The Future in this Musing.
S- Darthix' game-a-week challenge is off to a solid start with Portal.
S-When Monday comes, it's time to let NihonTiger90 know What'd You Get?
P-Your Princess is in another Podcast episode 4 is now available.
P-While not technically a podcast, you have the option of listening to STFUAJPGM (the "M" is for Music) and you'd be doing yourself a disservice by not doing so.

Not a thing.

E-If you're close enough to San Francisco to know where San Mateo is, you might want to check out the NARP DtoidSF will be throwing this Saturday.
E-If you're going to PAX, you could totally bring my avatar with you. He'll split transportation costs and is a great listener.*
I-Kudegra's introduction is primarily about the game Killing Floor. It's not really a floor, it's more of a steel grate that allows material to sluice through so that it can be collected and exported. In any case, welcome to Destructoid.
I-Greetings also to Xenomus, who really seems to understand this whole intro thing.

N-NihonTiger90 beat the front page with this story about major retailers cutting back on what Wii games they'll allow on their shelves.
R-Nilcam reviewed his new Fightstick he got to play Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.
R-TewDee sorta reviews the Korg music maker for the DSi.
P-NightV gave an extensive breakdown of what he thinks of the M.A.G beta.
T-Gilgamesh1317 had an...inconsistent experience in his local game store.
T-AJN256 and Rev. Anthony would probably get along just fine.
T-Blindfire can't stand unlocking stuff in his fighting games. What do you think?
T-ThemDerp longed for the good ol' days, until he had to experience them.
T-Nekobun wrote at length about his experiences in the Phantasy Star universe.

S-WastelandTraveler let us all know about this mounted alien-head thing that would look so, so very badass above someone's fireplace.

R- It's cold out there, y'all. That's why liberals have switched from saying "Global Warming" to "Climate Change."
V-PreacherMan89 made a PAIN video.
V-Everyday Legend posted this video showing off the new Ultras in Super Street Fighter 4. I'm a little disappointed Balrog's don't involve ear-biting.
V-TewDee posted a video of a discussion about the different flavors of First Person Shooters.
V-Lotta videos Monday. This one is of de BLOO winning SF4, forever.
C-This would make an excellent forum post. A blog, not quite so much.
C-Same as above.

The only fail today would be in watching this video through to the end. Like I did. Repeatedly.

*Avatar will not actually split transportation costs. If it did, I might be able to go in person.
