CBlogs o' 7/29/13 + MacMangasms

A thought occurred to me over the weekend. Now, Microsoft has really made strides to win people over after the shit-show that was.. well, everything since it was announced. Now these strides we know about. "We" being those who keep up with gaming news. But what about those who don't?



I recently visited my extended family and had a discussion with one of my cousins. He's the type of guy who loves games but only really plays 3 or 4 a year. He told me he has no intention of getting an Xbox One because of their DRM policies n all that. When I told him they were reversed he seemed shocked. Apparently, he had no idea. This inspired me to ask a few more people. People who like games but rarely play them. 

Most of them seem to know about the DRM policies. This makes perfect sense, for when the news reached a fever-pitch it was on CNN, CNBC, various military and civilian newspaper. Near everywhere. The reversal news hasn't seen the same exposure. Many people I asked had no idea anything had changed with Microsoft.

Because of the vast difference in media exposure is what Microsoft has been doing too little too late in terms of a successful launch? They've clearly won over some of the more informed gamers but what about those who buy their games based on basic tv ads and what their friends tell them is good? I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments as I've come to believe this is the case.

What a day for blogs. Top sauce was a tough one. 

* - Its going to be okay.

* - Shinta-ee gives us his thoughts on Phil Fish in one of the most well done blogs I've seen in ages.

* - TheManChildy wants us to stop being so angry. He makes a fine point.

A - Zeroy talks about his hesitation toward buying the new xbox in this well done blog.

S - zombie-ee talks to humans that sounds kind of like my fridge.

A - DXy thinks Phil Fish isn't an asshole.

M - Jeremy-ee talks about how the Last of Us makes us question our morals. It's a well done blog, but I'm not sure I agree.

A - Sirey gives us a few words about tomb raider in this spoiler-full blog.




Lotta Phil Phish anger today.

D - New Communitoid ya'll. A fine title, too.

I - AK-ee says hello.

$ - A shameless plug of some neat looking indie games.

$ - Portable Ninty-ee clues us into some of the finer things in the life of a 3DS owner.

R - Troy-ee reviews the new streetpass games. Can't wait to play them!

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?
