LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 06/04/14 and 06/05/14 + Shadeisms

   0


This morning I was thinking about what to write in today's Recaps for all y'all, especially since I'm pulling double duty today in Strider's absence. Seeing as I've been playing a lot (and I do mean A LOT) of Mario Kart 8, I figured that was going to be the safest bet.

But then as I was writing about which new tracks I liked the best, a thought occurred to me. I know, I have these insights sometimes, can't help it. I thought to myself "You know what, I could totally make a blog out of this instead".

So I did!

Long story short: Mario Kart 8 is tons and tons of fun, and the 16 new tracks are almost all great. There may be one or two exceptions, but overall Nintendo did a great job here. The updated retro stages I tend to like a little less, but there are still some nice choices in here as well. It's also great to see how much effort Nintendo seems to have put in bringing Gamecube, N64 and even a SNES track into the modern world.



Seriously, look how bland Royal Raceway was on the N64. It was just a blob of green with a line of grey in the middle. How did we ever live with that, right? Now we've got pretty trees, hot air balloons, the works. A major improvement there for sure.

At any rate, for the rest of this weeks Shadeisms go read that blog up there, and enjoy some Mario Kart 8 music while you're at it!



* - So you're going to Disneyland and you're bringing a 3DS; how do you get the most out of it? Our resident Disney-maniac (or rather "employee") Strider shares his tips & tricks.

* - I was actually quite surprised by how well thought-out this blog turned out to be. Game Games has really thought about what he dislikes about turn-based games.

* - When you think about it, the huge use of First Person perspectives in video games is quite interesting. Lots of cool things have been realized with it over the years!

* - Oscarno takes a break from dissecting a specific game's OST to look at Rhythm games in general. Quite an interesting little blog.

A - NVGR yes, but kenshin has a story worth telling and insight to share.

A - Well, calling this blog a "rant" certainly wasn't a lie. Terry doesn't see the point of the upcoming Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire remakes, and shits on the WiiU for good measure.

S - Ocelot looks at another Platformer level: The Mysterious Inflatable Island from Rayman Legends.

A - Ghalheart thinks Pokémon Delta Emerald might become a WiiU game. Not gonna lie, I'd buy it.





I - Retrofraction has been gone for a while (haven't we all?) and comes back sharing things he's seen and done.

F - Xbox FNF with...nothing, I guess?

T - Marche finally got around to playing Metal Gear Rising, and I get the distinct impression that he liked it. Just a hunch though.

D - In the game currently being developed by Twisted Jenius, giant reptile things wish to eat you! Welcome to my life, buddy.

R - Oculin reviews Drakengard 3, which sounds like a game you might be better of watching than playing. At least then you can focus on the witty banter to your heart's content.

T - I simply cannot condone any game in which you blow up penguins. It's not right.

A - ProfessorBacon drew some pictures on Miiverse to mess with people. I laughed harder than I should've.

C - Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires has some new things in it. Yay?

C - Yes, Nintendo is doooooomed. We know. BRB, playing Mario Kart 8.

S - The WiiU update has been covered, and honestly even the first time there wasn't much to say about it.

F - Unreadable? Spam? Far worse: we have unreadable spam in this mother! Where is your god now?!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Schooled

Gather round boys and girls! School may be back in session, but you should still have a bit of time left to skirt your responsibilities and write some damn blogs!

In the true spirit of the classroom, this month’s Bloggers Wanted prompt is all about “things that video games have taught you.” Whether you want to write about a specific skillset you’ve acquired, love (or hate…) for a genre, game design, music composition, edutainment games, general life lessons, or even delve into more abstract territory…. As long as you’ve learned something, even if you didn’t realize it at the time, I want to fucking hear about it!

The world is your goddamn oyster here! All you have to do is slap some words together and format the title as “Schooled: [your blog title here].” It’s that fucking easy, folks! If your blog is up to snuff, it might even get promoted to the Front Page!

Don’t hold out on me, people! I read everything over in the Cblogs. I’ll know if you’re playing hooky this month, and I will look at you with sad puppy eyes if you let me down.
