CBlogs o' 9/9/13 + MacMangasms [Breaking Bad Spoiler Alert]

   0


Gotta say, I haven't really had time to play much of anything this week. I've been buried hip deep in a pile of test prep books as I desperately cram for the GRE. Oh, how I love standardized tests that will have a major impact on the course of your life. But that's not what I want to talk about this week. This week I have to talk about Breaking-fucking-Bad.

[img=600x800]https://d2nh4f9cbhlobh.cloudfront.net/_uploads/galleries/3577/breaking-bad-image-2.jpg[/img]

I am simply obsessed with this show. I watched the whole series earlier this year and marathoned right through it on Netflix in preparation for the final episodes. This week's episode was just too much. My favourite moment was when Saul Goodman and Walt Jr. finally crossed paths. It was a funny reminder of how Walt Jr. has been completely unaware of what has been going on throughout his many breakfast eating scenes.



As for what I think will happen, I'm pretty sure this is the end of Hank, and unfortunately, Gomey. The more I think about it, the more I'm convinced that it's the inevitable end for Hank. For him, it's no longer about simply locking up a criminal, it's about catching his White (no pun intended) whale. Clearly he hasn't gathered evidence in a way any court will take and he also has Walt's confession tape to contend with, Hank was gonna catch him even if it kills him.



I'm pretty sure the next episode will begin with Hank and Gomez going down and Walt finds that Jessie has escaped.  I really can't take the suspense. What do you guys think is gonna happen?

Let's talk about this in the comments.

* - A bit on the pitfalls of game criticism. I give you top sauce like I think of Vice as a good documentary show. Great, but I'd have liked to have seen you do more.

* - A great journey through the history of backwards compatibility.

A - Manny just about has me sold on the Vita TV.

S - Sammy let's us know what he'll be up to.

S - A meaty backlog. Fine work as always.









D - I'm really intrigued. Looking forward to the trailer.

T - Shuuda-y brings us some impressions of an interesting looking prison game.

R - A Fallout 3 reviews for you. Nothing against the review but I really hate when people call a review "The [insert name here] Review," eh Kotaku,,,

R - Another review by Sammy. This time he does Gone Home.





V - Marchey takes us through some of the cooler streams out there.

S - As I say every week now, please do a blog along with your let's play.

Also guys the Pirates finally have a winning season! I could care less what happens form here on out this season. It's been over 20 years. I'm good.

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!
