LONG BLOG

Cblog Recaps of 2/5/14 and POKEBANKISMS

   0



First thing's first, two blogs were criminally upcapped. That's a word right? Still, I don't know how you don't notice a blog unless it magically popped up just as you were posting, but here you go.

AboveUp posted a round of challenges issues to the forum dwelling monstrosoes. The topic? Draw the cover of your favorite games!

Also, I didn't see my blog about Log Horizon get capped. It's an anime about an MMO where the global community of players are trapped in the game's world. Rather then fear death, they face purgatory with in-game immortality.

Now with that out of the way,

Pokebank!

POKEBANK!

POKEBANK!



I finally, finally got some of my most wanted Pokemon transferred over to Pokemon X. Finally, my suicide lead Aerodactyl can begin and my Whimsicott can start a cutesy reign of terror against set up sweepers with a priority boosted Encore. Finally, my previous shinies can roam freely in glorious 3D! Albino Rhyperior! Here we go!

If I can figure out where I wanna put a slow-ass, rock/ground wrecking ball.

Only time will tell how I can make teams to accommodate my new additions but its certainly revitalized my interest in playing Pokemon X again. And if you have anything negative to say about Pokebank, you're free to express your wrong opinions. We're on the Internet to share our opinions no matter how wrong they are. Its a sign of strength and will power really to demonstrate how wrong you are.

I also just switched over from Verizon to T-Mobile using their unique break up promotion where they take care of your early termination fees. It was a great deal as I save money overall on my monthly bill but upgrade to a newer phone and there's no contract service. Finally, I jumped from an iPhone 4 to an iPhone 5s and its nice to experience something a bit more cutting edge every year. I mean, 8GB to 16GB? That's a useful leap for all my downloads.

Well, if you want more caps, here's a taste of how I've been spending some of my idle time since discovering Inside Gaming on Youtube.



In between Inside Gaming, as you'll see from the caps filler pictures, I've been on a One Piece bender, rewatching some of the best fights on Youtube. The only anime worth its longevity currently. Dragonball Z ain't got nothing on this shit.


* - The Hoff examplifies some talented artists who helped him on his projects

* - Poupadopolis reveals unto us a gem of an obscure, Japan only tale called Segagaga, a true love letter to Sega fans before the fall of the Dreamcast and a biting satire of the game industry, at least back then

* - Spielerdad gets all Inception on us and documents his dreams based off of recent experiences and the fact that he plays games. He plans to pop in DOA Xtreme Volleyball soon


M - Jorgy waxes on his time spent on Link's Awakening, a key part of his past

M - Dwayne realizes the cycle of games and the enjoyment he derives out of some of our longest standing choices

A - Where the hell is the interest in a second Dreamcast supposed to be?








R - Starpoint Gemini 2 is only in alpha but it feels like a beta! Fishsticks is a delicious food and a lucky gamer!

N - SAGE stands for Sonic Amatuer Game Expo and Overbound is excited for the next big amateur Sonic game

R - For me, Gravity Rush is something I don't know much about since I don't own a Vita. Troy lets us non-Vitas know exactly what it is

V - Strummbummer compares GTAV to the lyrics of Kanye West








F - Starwolf has a thing and it might be a gender inspecific genitals

F - And he never came back to check on his blog!


~POKEBAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANK!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
First Kiss

No matter what the experience was or which game or genre left that strong first impression, such experiences have the potential to open our eyes to the rich history of a series or genre. With any luck, we might find even more to love or something better. A great first experience with RPGs could lead to an undying love affair.

Sometimes a first kiss can be so impactful that the game gets placed on a pedestal and enshrined as a gold standard, which has its own pros and cons. I mean, it is nice to have a basis for comparison, but some folks take it too far. There are people who loved Half-Life, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, or Final Fantasy VII so much that nothing after them really got a fair shake.

So first impressions matter -- they can shape and inform our gaming habits. I grew up on arcades, Nintendo, handhelds, and eventually into RPGs, so much of what I play will be influenced by how I acquired my tastes. I probably like Overwatch a ton because it has a passion for RPG roles, but contextualizes them closer to older shooters focused on objectives more than gear builds and grinding out perks for better killstreaks.

So for this month's Bloggers Wanted, we'd like you head over to the community blogs write about your first kiss, the games that positively influenced you or maybe biased you a little too much for a time. What turned you on to a series or genre? Was it love at first sight? Did it set any expectations in stone or possibly lead you to something better?

Whatever the case might be, remember to use the title "First kiss" and place "Bloggers Wanted" in the tags!
