C blogs of 8-23-10 and Qalamarisms


Good Monday evening to you all. I hope you'll indulge me a small question up at the top. How can I better serve you in my capacity as a recapper? Last week's outing went practically unnoticed, which is discouraging to say the least. It makes me think I'm not doing something right, so I'd like to ask you what I can change to make things better. Just hit up the comments at the end of the post; be honest and please keep it constructive, that's all I ask.

Lots of good stuff at the top tonight, a couple of monthly musings by Banjo-Kazooie fans, and some worldwide NARP retrospectives. Let's get to it.

*-AlphaDeus has a talent for playing the piano, but a limited time to share it with the world. This is some truly lovely playing right here.
*- Handy's Fanart Flops this time brings you such horrors as Lady Gaga Cloud and Tiny-Face Tidus. That's right, it's the Final Fantasy version.
*-Need proof that the Dtoid community is awesome? Look no further than their willingness to help out a stranger in his time of need.
*-Corduroy Turtle's Musing for the month should be familiar to anyone who's ever tried to explain something to a child.

A-Nice to see BahamutZero return to the site with this rant slanging off in-box DLC.
M-Burningsoup Musing explains his bias in favor of platform games.
M- XL1ska tells a harrowing story of how his bias for Rare has dwindled to nearly nothing in recent months.

W-Destructoid: Where Even the Losers are Winners!

E-Zen Albatross and friends will be rockin' 8bit goodness at PAX prime in less than two weeks. If you've seen any of Topher's Journalism Show videos, you've heard Zen's music and know it to be good. Let's show some serious support at PAX!
D-Video and pictures from last weekend's EuroNARP are now condensed into this handy little blog.
D-Not to be outdone, Dtoid San Francisco countered with video and photos of their NARP. Don't worry, I managed to stay off-camera the whole night. Your eyeballs will be safe.
I-A reintroduction by one of Destructoid's most senior members. Power-Glove is a man of wealth and taste.

N-Louis Garcia12 wanted to let everyone know that the free-to-play MMO Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures is now in open beta.
T- Some rantin' and ravin' about Sega by The Auracle.
T-Kytherno recommends a couple of retro Playstation games, but Goggleknocker makes an excellent point.
T-Lil DangerouZ posted a few things he thinks are necessary to sell a game.

A-Some beautiful ink drawings based on Diablo 2, Shadow Hearts, and Rule of Rose by Yorda.
M-Kingcrude put together a Modern Warfare 2 music video using the game's sound assets.
S-Hey guys, we're all gonna get semi-formal dresses from the 80's! SWEET!

L-Geoff shared a video showing some silly Mirror's Edge cosplay in the vein of Mega64.
V-DimmuJed likes Pokemon Red's music. It's still amazing how much game got packed into that little plastic cartridge.
C-Short blogs consisting of one or two lines tend to go ignored. You'd have better luck in the forums.

F-Occam's (AKA The Toothbrush Man) used his GIS superpowers to keep this one from being a total waste of space.
F- A cross posted review of Kane and Lynch 2. Hard to say what's the bigger fail.

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?
