Cblogs of 11/29/12 + 11/30/12 and bbainisms


Hello everyone! You get a double scoop of recaps by me today! Wooo!

I'll probably keep this short though, because this week has been particularly stressful, and I'm eager to get some much needed sleep!

Other than a buttload of hours spent at work, my free time was consumed by Mega Man this week. I received Mega Man 5 from my brother for birthday, completing my collection of NES Mega Man games, so I've been spending my time playing through all of the games in the main Mega Man series to celebrate. I'm unfortunately missing Super Nintendo's Mega Man 7, and fortunately missing PlayStation's Mega Man 8 (god, that voice acting...), but I have every other entry in the series. I also finally beat 9 and 10 for the first time, and I think 10 might have made its way into my top 3 in the series, right behind 2 and 3. 10 is a brilliant entry into the series, perfectly fun and challenging, so I'm glad I finally played it! Sheep Man was kind of a strange decision though, but Nitro Man more than makes up for him. He's become one of my favorite robot masters, behind Wood Man of course. No one can top Wood Man :)

Anyway, on to the recaps! The thing you probably clicked here for in the first place! Wooo!

* - Astonishingly Badass offers some very helpful advice on how to survive in the world of online multiplayer gaming, supposing you're a n00b who doesn't do any of this stuff anyway!

* - SephirothX counts down five characters that deserve their own video games. A Trigun game could be really great!

* - MisterDonut is all about iOS devices as gaming platforms now, and even thinks other platforms could learn a thing or two from mobile games!

A - ManWIthNoName grew up watching Brazilian novelas, which left him open to playing the video game equivalent, visual novels.

A - Ethan hopes to see the day when video games become a universally acceptable hobby.

A - failtuna wonders why sports fans are exempt from being called "nerdy" for their often obsessive behavior. A just question.

A - FourFingerFreddy would like to see these franchises introduce a video game starring a female protagonist.

A - Eric Jackson wonders if we should be concerned about the amount of violence present in current video games.

P - Scary Granules, episode 4! Featuring community members Glowbear and Panzadolphin! I'll have to give this a listen.

F - Friday Night Fights on the PC + the Saxxy awards!

F - Friday Night Fights on the PS3 + Revengeance!

F - Friday Night Fights on the 360 + Grand Theft Auto!

C - Isshak Ferdjani seems to be having some sort of existential crisis. We hear you, dude!

T - Stubbleman gives us the bad, the bad and the bad of Final Fantasy XIII.

T - Bibbly dislikes the Portal games for having predictable puzzles, and suggests that puzzle-seekers play Quantum Conundrum instead.

T - EricBlair thinks Dragon Warrior VII may have been one of the last great RPGs.

N - While the Humble Bundle may be keeping THQ fans happy for now, it seems the company might be in some financial trouble.

$ - November 30th UK releases and bargains!

A - Monodi is back and he drew a picture of Bowser!

A - rubenf made a self protrait of himself as Alan Wake in watercolors. Neat!

R - "Tekbunny" is trying to finish up his Steam backlog and wants our suggestions on what to play first (I say Cave Story and Super Meat Boy).

V - CountZeroOR made a video series looking back at issues of Nintendo Power.

V - BobofMainframe counts down his top 10 Wii games, in video format.

C - Ryan in Seattle adds some fuel to the PC vs. console debate... but why?

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?
