C-blogs of 11-09-09 and Qalamarisms


Great job on the blogs today, guys. There were a LOT of good articles and some great stuff from some familiar sources. As for me, though? I'm exhausted, and as such I've got nothin'. Here's a monkey playing the piano.

*-So Kauza wrote somethin' awesome again.
*-StevenXOnward wrote about the dichotomy of good and evil, how gaming karma is a measure of another man's morality, and tied religion into things as well. Heady stuff, but well worth a look.
*-This article by CopilotLindy encourages us to break out of our comfort zones and meet our games halfway. Blindfire said it best: "If you do the minimum to get by, rarely will you be truly satisfied."
*-In what may be the best Off Brand Games yet, MegaStryke takes on a mission from General Mills.

A-Boatz wrote a Sterlingesque article comparing the two main critters in the Sonic universe.
A-And DanOConnor did one comparing Aladdin with Mario.
A-CptnMayhem smells a conspiracy behind the re-release of God of War 1+2 on Blu-ray. What do you think?
A- "Altelier? That's the hero in the first Assassin's Creed, right?" No, my friends. Let BulletMagnet educate you.
A-Stevil's been posting his thesis, written about the difference between Eastern and Western horror games. Part three concludes the series.
A- What's it feel like when you're just not interested in the biggest game of the year? I could tell you, but WanderingPixel does it better.
A-Y0j1mb0 thinks Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is gonna bomb on the Wii in North America.
A-Charlietime thought about what makes for a satisfying melee attack, and here shares the results of his ponderings.
S-It's Monday. Time to take a tally and let NihonTiger90 know What'd You Get?

W- ElTopo is your Magna Carta 2 winner.
W-Preacherman89 received the signed soccer ball from the contest he won a while back.

E-Christmas is rapidly approaching, and if you'd like to participate in Destructoid's Secret Santa program, it's not too late! Cataract has graciously extended the deadline.
E-Boomsling would like to invite you to play CoD4 on the 26th for bragging rights and prizes.
S-Congratulations to Usedtabe and his wife, who just finished rolling a level 1 human female.
C-JohnnyViral enlisted the community's help to decide which co-op FPS he should get.

N-Double2 deserves a cookie for correctly predicting the MW2 price wars now occurring in Great Britain.
T-Payne6 prefers Treyarch to Infinity Ward and backs up his opinions with... well, no, not science.
T-ThomastheCat thought long and hard about his past before writing this piece about story in games.
T-Stewie32887 is lovin' him some Dragon Age.
T-NeverAnything's thoughts on the recent Modern Warfare 2 brouhaha.
T-Zaro27 hates the unwashed masses on Xbox Live. No argument here.
T-A second blog from Hessiana discussing MW2 and WoW.
R-Brainderailment reviewed an interesting peripheral; the Rocketfish is a PS3 controller designed like a 360 pad.
R-This retro-review of Rayman 2 on the N64 kinda makes me sad I've never played it.

A- Ocified Xboxer made a Dtoid-themed car in Forza 3. Pretty good for a first effort.
M- ArrestedDeveloper found a pretty kickass chiptune version of Thriller. Just in time for Moonwalker on the VC!
M-It's Justice time on dTunes this week. He starts things out with some game music remixes.
F-For Mindf*ck Monday, Analoge is showing the truly bizarre Fantastic Planet.

R-Billboard ads for Left 4 Dead 2 are beginning to show their dessicated, partially-chewed fingers. Waxximis saw this one near Phoenix.
R-While reading this, I got a mental image of Rick Astley facepalming. Perhaps I have been on the internet too long.
C-Not entirely sure I understand this. Are you calling out Dragon Age for being formulaic? Did you like it? What does this have to do with Dr. Dre?
?-Another L4D2 "dibs" blog.
?-Genki-JAM and others did some Dramatic Readings.

F-e. e. cummings here doesn't believe in capitalization. Unfortunately for him, I'm a grammar Nazi.
F-C'mon, man. You're better than this.
F-Go back to bed.
