Cblogs of 08/29/13 + Shadeisms


Weeeeeeeeell I got nuthin'.

This week was pretty uneventful. I've been working a bit, I played some more Pikmin 3 and some other games on Steam. Mostly Ys: The Oath in Felghana which is pretty good, but I liked Ys: Origin better. Played Papers, Please as well, which is an interesting experiment if nothing else.

Other than that, I started rewatching the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, which I haven't done in many years for reasons beyond the grasp of mortal ken. I had completely forgotten how utterly pointless Dead Man's Chest is. Literally nothing gets resolved in that movie. And when they DO look like they've resolved something in the last five minutes of the movie, they immediately decided to UNDO said resolving. Which is what we see in At World's End. Oh well. I still like these movies, and it's fun watching them again and/or trying to get my grubby hands on those kickass soundtracks.

That's all I got, so have some music!

* - (This blog was missed earlier, so I'm taking it now) Nanbu wrote a good blog that raises valid points on making characters into inclusion checklists...but can we have ever so slightly less name-calling next time? Pretty please?

P - The new Communitoid is right on cue for PAX. It also has nuns and dildos, make of that what you will.

A - Having discussed the best parts of this console generation last time, Cinderquill now takes a look at the dark side.

A - Can GlowBear bring ethics into the world of Pokémon? Read on to find out!

A - DapperMouse (I like that username, "dapper" is a good word) provides an interesting look on the world of Dragon Age, and how it would suck living in it.

A - A lenghty look at the Nintendo 2DS. Personally I think it's not really as difficult as people make it out to be, but that's neither here nor there.

E - PanaMusica is taking Scield to PAX, and he could use some suggestions for cool photo ops.

E - Marche100 does some effective guilt tripping to get his avatar adopted.

E - Going to PAX? Here are some bars you might want to check out!

D - Design on Sprout's Tale is still going steady. Gotta say I think it looks pretty good.

N - Another day, another shooting blamed on video games.

T - I never heard of Conquest Mode before, but it sounds like the coolest shit. Pixielated is competely right then to want it back for Soul Calibur II HD.

C - The many woes of international shipping.

- ShadeOfLight
May you always find water and shade

Turning Japanese
Japanese culture is everywhere in video games, not to mention that Japanese developers always seem to put their own spin on a game. What does Japan mean to your favorite games?
