LONG BLOG

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

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

Overcoming Fear

We’ve all been there. A game presents us with a moment or situation that fills us with dread. It could be the inexorable approach of a supernatural menace or looking down from the top of an impossibly tall building. Games will play on your fears and push you. But how do you overcome and prevail?

In honor of the ween of hallow and the month of October, the Bloggers Wanted prompt is all about “overcoming your fears in video games.” How did you face the digital demons and pixel poltergeists? Did climbing in Assassin’s Creed make you feel dizzy? Or do underground levels make you feel like you can’t breathe? Everyone has this moment in gaming. You can scoff at the mirror room in Silent Hill 3 but break out into a cold sweat if you see a clown. So what do you do to get past this? Have any tricks of the trade or anecdotes that you’ve picked up along the way? We want to hear about it.

Take us to your moment and how you dealt with that fear. Let us see into your heart and reach out to touch the quiet truth of your words. All you have to do is write your story in the Cblogs and format the title as “Overcoming Fear: [your blog title here].” It's delightfully easy. You may even find your story promoted to the Front Page. That’s always a treat.

You’ve overcome this fear. You have this story, this moment. Why not share it with us? Maybe your story can help someone else overcome their fear.
