Cblog Recaps of 2/24/09


I’m a bit too sick and tired to do a proper introduction here, but, I have to say this:

Jansen is one of the best-written characters in a video game ever. Anyone who wants to know how to write great, well-timed dialogue needs to play Lost Odyssey just for Jansen.

That is all.

*-Continuing his phenomenal Dragon Questing series, Ben Haskett tells us why DQM: Joker wasn’t…that…great.

*-Mighty Pinto gives a great review of a similar-to-Lit freeware game called Mall Monster.

*-nukka jdav, with the help of some methed-out bimbos, reviews Lost and Damned. Fantastic.

*-GamingGoddess talks about how, even though Eidos wants her to get a breast reduction, plastic surgery is the least of Lara Croft’s worries.

*Playing with Yourself: A Sega fanboy’s tale of life and gaming. Nice first blog, btw.

*-Tehmtnlion gives us yet another amazing tale as his trip to the grocery store starts out maddening, then turns amazing.

*-Tanukitsune reviews a game with the greatest premise ever: A point-and-click adventure detective game set in a noir version of Oz.

A-A review of the Mad Catz FightStick, with modding instructions. Interesting, but way too technical for me.

S-Hooooleeeeee shit…Funktastic is filled to the brim with new gaming goodness.

S-Trunners starts out his top 5 favorite NES games with a title I’ve never seen before, but sounds cool.

P-The BACALAOPodcast crew talks about Community Vibes 4.

P-FAILCAST records tonight, but don’t worry about asking questions; they’re just gonna fuck it up.

E-Win some awesome Skate 2 promotional material!

E-Win The Lost and Damned with either Photoshop skills or heartbreaking stories!

E-The Destructoid Running Club begins to help motivate all us lazy Dtoiders.

S-Rev Anthony whores out his whore article on AMC about whore video game movies. Whore.

S-SephirothX is entering a SF4 tourney this weekend, and wanted to ask you lovely folks a question.

B-A big happy birthday to my favorite Dtoid musician (and favorite chiptune artist) GuitarAtomik!!!

V-The first trailer of the game at the top of my “DO WANT” list, Singularity.

V-Clance played a soccer game and recorded an apparently “cracking” goal. Honestly, I will never understand the British…

V-Neat videos showing off Metroid Prime 1 & 2 using glorious motion controls.

R-A Street Fighter 4 review from, apparently, an illiterate.

R-Mr. Jonathan Holmes looks at Dead Rising Wii and, surprisingly, finds it not that bad.

R-Trev looks at everyone’s favorite acid-induced, body-twisting, space-exploration puzzle game Noby Noby Boy.

T-As if you didn’t already have the motivation to do so, here’s why you gotta play Mother 3.

T-Sir Sterling talks about Killzone 2…or cake…I’m not quite sure…

T-RiotMonster wants help picking out her starter for Pokemon Platinum.

M-MC Lars is coming out with a new album! Here’s the video for a song off said album, “Guitar Hero Hero”.

S-Ali D looks into gamer shirts that rip off the 4 name Beatles’ shirts, and sparks a discussion about gaming shirts in general.

V-2 words: Van Damme

V-Economic stimulus packages are always cuter when they’re younger…

?-sickNasty shows off some of his Photoshop prowess by giving us the scariest Jew ever.

?-The Playstation now has a disease named after it. It’s now the most expensive disease known to man.

?-Ever get the feeling that you’re the last sane person on Earth? There’s gonna be a Spiderman musical on Broadway, using the music of U2.

S-Yeah…we know.

F-Man cuts and pastes shitty article, fails.

F-Congrats on the new system, but please direct yourself to the forums.

F-Thank God you posted those screenshots. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have known EXACTLY who you were.
