LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 5-31-10 and Qalamarisms

Well tarnation, look at that there. If that don't beat all. We had a bumper crop of quality bloggin's today, yessiree. It may have been the holiday, or the weather, or some other permutation I can't think of at the moment, but you outdid yourselves today, ladies and gents. With some extra free time on your hands today, it seems as though many of you decided to work on your blogs. It was a busy day, so let's get to it. And if you spent some of your Memorial day playing a war game, first let the irony sink in, then make sure to thank a veteran.




*- Norm9 took a moment to remember the reason we had a holiday here in the U.S. today. To those who have served, we thank you.
*-I'm PROBABLY wrong, but I think this blog is about Stevil killing Funktastic and stealing his Playboys.
*-Guncannon proves that some music just works in any situation.
*-Nilcam offers some tips to improve yourself at the fightin' games. As he puts it, "It's part Sun Tzu, part psychological warfare."
*-Moobs-- Beyamor has'em. (Apparently.)
*-I don't agree with EternalDeathSlayer's rant here; personally, I avoid Activision products because I don't like their apparent contempt for gamers. And though I know full well that my decision not to purchase their wares is as ineffective as farting at Air Man, I won't condone their disrespect by giving them any of my money. However, he has every right to say what he did, and it touched off quite the debate in the comment section.
*-And a bit later, that debate continued with this blog, a fairly heady piece by Lazaro Cruz.
*- the hits keep on coming, and Golden Avenger drops some SCIENCE while praising one of history's greatest badasses, Nikola Tesla.


A-Sometimes, you just need to vent. I know you think it's bad now, Kinjiro, but it was arguably worse when GameStoppers knew nothing about their stock.
A-An open letter to PS3 developers asking that they not copy-protect their save files. Makes sense to me, that data's a lot less sensitive/valuable/worth stealing than the game code itself.
A-Alakaiser shares the story of how he fell out of, and back into love with fighting games. (It rhymes with "blooper meat spider war.")
A-Javidwashere details his affair with Atlus, from schoolboy crush to nightly penetration. (Was that too far? That may have been too far.)
M-For the final Musing this month, Enkido explored the different gaming paths his family has taken.
P-Podsumaki recorded earlier this evening.



I love this guy's channel.


F-Nilcam posted the weekly update for the PS3 fight club.
S-Doomsday Forte spent part of his vacation at a hospital. Sorry sir, hope your mom has a speedy recovery.


T-With some time to kill, HELI05 whomped up a list of unlikely sequels he'd love to see.
T-And Kytherno took time to educate us on one of the listed entries, Rogue Galaxy.
T-And another, the Metroid Prime series. Hm. Maybe HELI05 and Kytherno have a Tyler Durden/Jack thing goin' on.
R-Ruicraveirinha dissected Mass Effect 2 and found some things lacking in comparison to its predecessor.
R- Snowknight reviewed Super Mario Galaxy 2.
R-So'd Idrawrobots, who just finished the game with 120 stars.
D-RobotBebop's still working on a game, and has this progress report. Starting over must be a pain, but the results speak for themselves.
$-It may be worth your while to check Target's clearance section from time to time. Just sayin'.


A-A lovely tribute to some good people. Nice work, Jack Maverick.


V-A second trailer for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World has been released thanks to Facebook. Bathe in its radiance.
V-You know what? It does. It really does.
R-A plea from RetroSoldier to... honestly, I'm not even sure.
R-16bitJeff has been working on a Let's Play article for one of the first games I ever owned, Mega Man 4. Looking forward to it.
R-McFearsome is fearful of what the 'morrow may bring. Man up dude, it's only Alpha Protocol.
C-I don't give a fat crap about Modern Warfare 2, and I doubt very much I'm unique and alone in that sentiment. Never assume everyone in your audience thinks exactly the same way you do.


F- Yeah, no. But the picture Occam's posted in the comments? I want that on my wall.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
New Years Evil

So for this month's prompt, we should look to our best examples of scum and villainy. Talk about your favorite antagonists, villains, bad guys, and malcontents and why you like them so much. Certainly not because you want to be like them since the powers of law and order are probably keeping a close and watchful eye on us. But you know, hypothetically, if I were to recommend my own personal favorite villain, it might be Manfred Von Karma from Ace Attorney. The guy is irredeemably terrible, believing in not just results no matter the cost, but also a total disdain for nearly everyone around him since they most likely aren't as perfect as him.

For January's bloggers wanted prompt, just create a new community blog, start the title with "New Year's evil: [your blog title here]" and tell us about your favorite villains.

From the terrible like Flowey, to forces of nature like Gigyas. Go ham! We won't judge you since we're talking in hypotheticals. As long as we're talking about bad guys since Yoshikage Kira wasn't bad. Kira just wanted to live a peaceful life. He just happened to be a serial killer, you know?
