CBlogs o' 8/12/13 + MacMangasms: Up Since 3am Birthday Edition

   0


Holy fuck. I have been up a long time. I swear, every time I've had to take someone to the airport since starting here, I've had to get up at the witching hour to take someone to the airport. This time, I've been up since three. In just a few hours, it'll be my birthday. So for this edition, I'm gonna chat with you guys about birthdays and games.



Many moons ago I woke up as a young lad to unwrap a large box. Within that box was a Super Nintendo bundles with Yoshi's Island. Needless to say, I was the most hype little kid since that one child in the YouTube video where he goes ape shit over an N64.



Since then, many of the birthday requests of my youth were game oriented. I received such gems such as Croc 2 for the Playstation to one of the worst games of all time ever: Superman 64. I remember playing Spiderman on the Gamecube with my new Wavebird controller. That thing is still pretty great, in my opinion.



Since I was so young when I started gaming, birthdays and Christmas were the main times where I received a new game or two. I would wait in anticipation for weeks to play games like Banjo Twooie (or however the hell you spell that) and Timesplitters 2. They were always a special time where I received many games that still play today.

Now I'm in my 20's and preparing to go to grad school and won't be receiving any games. Though I'll always have those nice memories of being a kid unwrapping some cool new games.

Though I do have a new laptop on the way so I can finally play Civ V.

* - Timmy discovers Phantasy Star in this marvelously done blog.

* - Elsa relates her current encounters with death's looming shadow like we see in video games. We're here for you.

S - Andy offers a fine start to a promising series on gaming's great battles. If this were E3 you'd use 'epic' at least thirty times when describing this one.

A - Songy gives some thoughts on Extra Credits

A - Troy-ee dishes on why he doesn't think the Wii U needs a price drop.





E - Another fine edition of Communitoid.

T - Shuuda-ee gives us the rundown on this cool little game.

A - Never be afriad to blog drunk. Since you had the gall, I'm putting you in a category all your own.

L - New Pocketoid, ya'll!

F - The title of this substanceless ad has an appropriate name. Next time write an actual blog to go along with the video.

F - The same lot with the double fail!



I've been up for far too long, but I'm always glad to recap with you lovely people.

Happy Birthday to me.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Schooled

Gather round boys and girls! School may be back in session, but you should still have a bit of time left to skirt your responsibilities and write some damn blogs!

In the true spirit of the classroom, this month’s Bloggers Wanted prompt is all about “things that video games have taught you.” Whether you want to write about a specific skillset you’ve acquired, love (or hate…) for a genre, game design, music composition, edutainment games, general life lessons, or even delve into more abstract territory…. As long as you’ve learned something, even if you didn’t realize it at the time, I want to fucking hear about it!

The world is your goddamn oyster here! All you have to do is slap some words together and format the title as “Schooled: [your blog title here].” It’s that fucking easy, folks! If your blog is up to snuff, it might even get promoted to the Front Page!

Don’t hold out on me, people! I read everything over in the Cblogs. I’ll know if you’re playing hooky this month, and I will look at you with sad puppy eyes if you let me down.
