Not much to talk about this week. I've still been playing both Skies of Arcadia and Risk of Rain. Skies is turning out to be a looooong game (not a bad thing, necessarily). I'm making progress, but very slowly. As for Risk of Rain, I've beaten it several times and unlocked every character, but there's still one achievement that I haven't gotten because I'm terrible with the Sniper. Not that you really have to use the Sniper to get the 5,000 damage achievement, but it seems to be the easiest way. For some reason, I just hate seeing that I only have one achievement left to get in a game... I'm so close!

Also, about the recaps this week: I feel a little bad about the fail section. I really like the idea behind Musicians Wanted, and I'm sure it will lead to some very beautiful things, but it definitely seems to inspire lazy blog writing. For anyone reading this that plans on submitting something for Musicians Wanted: please, PLEASE add a bit of text to your blog to go along with your music. Tell us about yourself! Tell us about the piece you created! What influenced your decision? Why did you choose a particular game/musical style? I guess it's not required to write anything for the topic, but it definitely makes your blog more approachable and interesting, and it will surely get more people to listen to your music.

Anyway, that's all I've got for you today. Keep writing blogs and making sweet music!

S - KD Alpha teaches us how to use the training mode in fighting games, specifically Street Fighter.

A - Ray has some ideas for Nintendo to make a comeback, although I strongly disagree with a few of his suggestions.

A - sonic429 is all about the Wii U!

A - FoolproofAdam lists a few enemies that he thoroughly enjoys fighting. Personally, I find enemies that explode when you kill them to be quite satisfying!

A - Another blog offering advice for Nintendo to save itself, this time using the tactics of a pimp.



F - Friday Night Fights on Playstation + Time traveling!



V - Oculin plays Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers.

$ - February 7th UK releases and bargains!



F - SpielerDad wonders why Superman suddenly becomes so clumsy while disguised as Clark Kent.



R - Some more DeviantArt cosplay from Reinhold Hoffmann. Godot and Kuja are pretty neat!

L - TheKodu created a blog specifically to make puns about InFamous and condoms, and I applaud his efforts!



F - Gonna have to fail this one. Give us a little more to go off of. For example: What made you decide to remix this song?

F - This one is literally just a link... Tell us about yourself and your project!

F - This person at least gave us a bit of info, however... I can't figure out what the song has to do with gaming at all. I suspect they're just promoting their band with a random song?

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?
