LONG BLOG

Cblog Recaps of 08/14 and Striderisms

   0



Can you believe how long it took me to find a safe looking bunnygirl picture to post here?

So let me get one thing out of the way. I'll try to tip toe around the bushes here in an effort to be tactful. Hell, I'll quote one of Gobun's tweets so I can say I didn't say it but talking to my girlfriend earlier and talking about certain things. Man, I miss her.

So yeah, refer to Gobun's tweet for additional context. You should follow him too. I don't understand a lick of what he says on twitter and I'm not sure I fit his target audience but damn if his content isn't hilarious to me.

If you're reading this babe, I couldn't help it. But what I wouldn't give to see you in one of those.

Meanwhile, after months of people praising it and talking about how it didn't reach sales expectations, I managed to rent Tomb Raider and man Mitch Dyer was not kidding about the first hour. Mostly watching Lara realize just how deep shit she's in, watching said shit hit the fan, and more silent realizations of how fucked she is plus a lot of wolves. Oh man the wolves. It's like a furry convention if somebody got drunk and decided involving actual wild animals was a good idea.



But through it all, I played an awesome action game with just great controls. The kind of controls you'd take for granted in such a rough island. Lara just moves how I want her to all the time. Her jumps at times feel unbelievable but at the same time, majestic.

The shooting also feels good too. I'm sorry, shooting a bow feels good. That feeling you get from pulling the drawstring all the way for a fully charged shot right in some unsuspecting doof's head. Or shooting a quick volley as you move down a hallway asking for all the henchmen to head for their doom towards you.

I'm also glad I rented it. I have a feeling it's a great trip once through and it'd probably be great on more playthroughs but I'd probably just put it down after I beat it with just a passable multiplayer experience.

What I'm really excited for is Splinter Cell Blacklist, especially the Spies Vs. Mercs mode. I never got a chance to try it back with Chaos Theory and I really want to try the newly modernized Spies Vs. Mercs. I love me some assymetrical gameplay and feel like I'll play the shit out of that mode. Oh, and Splinter Cell's newly reborn campaign gameplay style. Panther all the way!

* - For many, Persona 3 is one of their most beloved games for all the things it did right as a fantastic JRPG. For Azure, it is one of his most beloved games of all time for a very different and personal reason. He didn't just play it though; it was as if he was apart of it.

A - The salt, it flows like juicy nectar from steescribbles tears of agony. All the great Japanese games are bullshit and the Illuminatii feed off of his hatred

A - Gamers or gamma testers? What sort of witchcraft of wordcraft are you pulling here zerocrossing?

A - Look at these games! No literally! Look at them! Through the Oculus Rift! You can't not look at them this next-gen!





F - Hump Day Havoc is a game get together thing and you're a lame ass for not knowing that

P - POstudios describes to us Face Noir, a game about noir-ish things

R - Dr. Robotnik's Big, Mean, Motherfucking Bean Flipping Machine

V - Don't be swapping my roles on Zelda now Nightv

N - Doth thou purchase a parcel of audio-visual delights? Then thou shalt spit upon the face of such a conglomerate by the name of E and A incorporated

T - V is not for Vendetta when KingSigy talks COD

R - Titannel looks at Game Gear Ninja Gaiden! Ninja Gayden? Ninja Guyden? Ninja Guy Fieri? SHINOBI!

M - Colton Phil gets all metal on our collective asses





F - Dusty's Who-cares!

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?
