Cblogs of 09/30/2009 + Sykisms


Just below this bit you'll find Youtube videos enabling you Americans to watch Charlie Brooker's Gameswipe. A programme made for the BBC with Charlie Brooker delivering the swipes that are usually reserved for TV in Screenwipe and the real world in his Guardian column to Videogames. Brooker's a lifelong gamer and it really shows in the production from Mock the Week host Dara O' Briain moaning about Gears of War's difficulty to Father Ted and The IT Crowd creator bitching about videogame stories. It's a brilliant thing to watch and you all should. Also British folks, pay your fecking TV licence because it gets us stuff like this.

One thing to look out for is a classic TV news section on a game that teaches kids to maim and demean women. Which game? The hilarious Night Trap. Yep, the Sega CD 'classic'. RapeLay also gets a mention.

Finally I have something Niero has no doubt gotten many emails about. Make the front page show ONLY the recent Cblogs again, otherwise people just don't see the new stuff.
