C Blogs of 12/24/12 + mcgeeisms


Apologies for the lateness, 'toiders; Christmas and Kahlua are probably to blame. Almost definitely. And why not throw my family under the bus, too?

I hope you've all been having some good holiday time; I know I have. Good food and gifts and booze and people you love. All that crap. You'd probably like to get back to that yourselves, so short -isms this week.

Before I go, though, I will tell you that a new episode of The Low(er) Tier Podcast is upon us! Fittingly, it's a drunken Christmas special, with A WHOLE SACK OF GIFTS for y'all. It also features a special guest straight from the Basement: usedtabe. So go listen to all the cheer, and enter for some fabulous gaming prizes.

Merry CAPSmas errbody!

* - Dr Rainbow gives his impressions on EVERY game he played in 2012. Holy hell! That's a lot of games! He also makes a good point about this year being great for games, if not underappreciated.

* - His first gaming console made a special Christmas. Timnoldzim recounts that morning. Do you all have a memory of your first console or special gaming Christmas moment? Share it here!

* - The Low(er) Tier Podcast makes a glorious return, with an X-mas episode and TONS of prizes. Get it while it's hot!

A - ctate95 has his own Best of 2012 medals to give out. Anything you might put on your own best-of list?

S - Marcunio88's tenth day of Christmas games. All about teh Haloz. I'm missin' some good-old LAN parties...

S - Marcunio88 explains what's up with his eleventh game in this series. Also, he makes a hell of a case for renaming Christmas Eve "Die Hard Day."

S - lostleader gets oh so close to finishing his 60 Games 2012 Challenge, and gets frustrated at Dragon Quest VI.

S - Lenigod finishes up his miniseries, with another game you NEED to play: XCOM: Enemy Unknown. You NEED to.

The Low(er) Tier Podcast is giving away a heap of games!

S - Paul Soth decided to drop in to say Merry Christmas! Also a neat picture. Merry Xmas Paul!

V - Sir Tobii continues his awards of 2012, in video form. This one is for best new protagonist. I'll give a hint to who won: it's a convicted...guy.

T - Pixielated remembers those lost in 2012. Minor spoilers, yo.

T - Retrofaction has a question or two regarding purchasing a Vita. Help, Vita owners?

R - ctate95 reviews Spec Ops: The Line. Definitely worth checking out.

N - aileronroll has some thoughts on a proposed bill for a study on videogames, children and violence. The guy proposing it seems suspect, and ill-informed. Surprised anyone?

? - There it is?

? - For once in fanfic , someone reaches for their belt and is punished for it.

F - I'm failing this blog because I believe the term "greenbacks" should be one word. I will not be moved on this.

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?
