LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 06/28/13 and bbainisms

I've been playing XCOM: Enemy Unknown this week, which I got for free from PS Plus. I always thought the game looked interesting, or at least I thought it was very visually appealing, but the strategy genre always scares me away. Since it's free though, I figured, why not? After playing for a few days, I think I can safely say that this is the first strategy game I've ever really enjoyed playing. The strategy combat was very easy to learn and become comfortable with. Trying to manage funds back at the base can be a little more difficult and confusing, but I don't think I'm doing TOO bad. Although I did recently cause Germany and South Africa to back out of the Council, so that's probably not great. I'm still not sure exactly what that means for me, if it's a really bad thing or not, but oh well. Who needs Germany anyway, right?

I probably spent way too much time customizing all of my soldiers, and I've grown a bit too attached to my main four (Major Joshua Sisco, Colonel Dallas Multipass, Captain Thaddeus Grope, and Lieutenant Harry Sack). Multipass is the best member of my team; she's an assault class, and has miraculously only been wounded once. Sisco, on the other hand, seems to get very injured every time I use him, although he still dishes out tons of damage and manages to stay alive. He got the nickname "Doomsday" which I figured means he's always in the hospital.


Wait a second... who is Haugen?

I'm at the part of the game where you use a skeleton key to infiltrate an alien base. Not sure how far into the game that is, but I feel like I'm just scratching the surface. It also makes me want to go back and give some other strategy games a second chance, like Valkyria Chronicles. I wasn't really feeling the genre back when I tried to play that game the first time, but now I think I might enjoy it a bit more.

Anyway, in terms of recaps, this Friday was kind of meh. Not sure what everyone was up to today that kept you from blogging, but I'll assume you were all busy having fun with Friday Night Fights or Animal Crossing or something.

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.
