CBlogS o' 9/23/13 + MacMangasms - Humanity... Are you there? Edition

   0


Are you there world?



It seems like it's been so long. Last thing I knew I got GTA V in the mail and then BAM! It's been a week.

I was as skeptical as they came when GTA V was being hyped up. I didn't like IV and to be perfectly honest, I hadn't finished San Andreas. [probably because I only got halfway through the campaign and then skydove (is that the right past-tense??) till I was tired of it.] 



I don't think I've been this hooked on a game since Arkham City. I love it. I absolutely love to the point where I'm really surprised with how much I enjoy it. I still haven't reached the end yet and I hope the story ends well.

Now granted I don't think it's a perfect game. The torture scene really left a bad taste in my mouth. If  they were trying to go for satire or a laugh, it didn't really click with me. I'll probably have more on the story when I actually finish the game. 



[SPOILERS AND THE ALERT OF SUCH THINGS]
What I really enjoy about the game is the brought back the blend of seriousness and goofiness that I appreciated in the earlier games. You can drive a tank, shoot aliens, Franklin talks to a dog, really hitting all the checkmarks for me. And Lazlow from Chatterbox is back! And you get tattoo a dick on his chest! Great stuff.

So what do you guys think about it? I hate to admit I haven't paid much attention to what the community has been saying about the game, let alone anything in the outside world.

* - Highly enjoyed this piece on what the success of GTA V can tell us about gaming right now.

A - Dupreey confesses his review score infatuations.

A - Some PS3 first impressions for you. Interesting to see something like this at the end of the console's life.

M - Oxy is pretty upset about the Dexter finale. I quit watching around Season 3 but man... that sounds like a terrible ending.

A - NVGRy is also upset about Dexter. Loved your fourth suggestion of how it could have ended. Brilliant!

A - Interesting thoughts on why a game's attach rate doesn't matter in the land of third parties.

S - Another enthralling edition of the backlog.

Also, what is this??


T - Shuuda-ee with a Golden Sun retrospective for you. Good stuff.

T - A fine guide to Metal Gear Part 2

T - Joey talks Saturn 9. Don't know how I missed this game

N - Say it ain't so Rockstar!

L - Titty wrote a radio play Monster Hunter. I don't know enough about the series to appreciate it, but still pretty cool!

L - "BIAS"

F - Just a video link.

It's been a fine day for blogs!

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?
