LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 11/5/09 + Strykisms

The topic of the day (as well as the week and the month and the year) is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Oh boy.

The past three to four years has seen the floodgates open up. What was once the domain of the PC is fast becoming that of the consoles. The first-person shooters have exploded on the charts and I... am not happy about that. Not the most popular opinion around these parts, but in the same way you guys look upon the minigame packs and the Suzie Homemaker portable pap with disdain, I feel uncomfortable by the popularity of the shooter genre.

Am I not trying hard enough? Have I just not played the right games? I don't know, but they all start to blend together for me. I feel no connection whatsoever. How can I? I'm a floating gun barrel. How do I relate to that? It's all so impersonal. That guy over there? Point that circle over him, push a button, and BOOM! He's dead. Like divine judgment. Just look at something at it dies. What a power trip.

So... Modern Warfare 2. Wooo. Here we go. Biggest game of the year. Whoop-de-shit. Hold me, the excitement is too great. Another bombastic Jerry Bruckheimer prouction where the viewer can feed instructions to a disembodied hand which will in turn spark carnage and mayhem for the spectator's wonderment.

You know what? The next time I go to a party and someone wants to bust out some Call of Duty or Halo or whatever, I'm going to offer a better alternative:




*- Cyberxion is feeling down and it's YOU assholes' fault!

*- Niero wants to hear your sexy voice.

*- Exploiting loyal Pikmin for profit, the lowest of lows.


A- The Conduit, more like The "Can't Do Shit"!
S- We should expect better communication from Bugsport.
S- dTunes, JT IceFire Rampage, Day 4: Song mash-ups.
S- Okami gets the Wryview treatment.
M- Being bad in GTA is actually good, in context.
P- GoddessCast VI: We less-than-three anime!





S- Sounds like you've got router problems, buddy.
I- Not techically an introduction post, but welcome Revariance anyway!
I- Bon-jer-no, Ikrik!


N- I ain't afraid of this week's Euro releases.
N- Here come the PS3 Netflix streaming discs!

N- Congratulations, Game Boy! You are a hall of famer!
N- Aussies, want that R18+ rating? Vote for David Doe!
R- Go, go, Forza Motorsport 3!
R- Modern Warfare 2 will rape you in the shower.
P- L4D2 is a lot like Curb Your Enthusiasm.
P- Uh oh! L4D2 is looking a little pale!
T- Modern Warfare 2 has failed to push the envelope.
T- You are soooo wrong about Dragon Age: Origins, Jim!
T- Dragon Age: Origin is slooooooooooooow.
T- Modern Warfare 2 and the gay virus.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
New Years Evil

So for this month's prompt, we should look to our best examples of scum and villainy. Talk about your favorite antagonists, villains, bad guys, and malcontents and why you like them so much. Certainly not because you want to be like them since the powers of law and order are probably keeping a close and watchful eye on us. But you know, hypothetically, if I were to recommend my own personal favorite villain, it might be Manfred Von Karma from Ace Attorney. The guy is irredeemably terrible, believing in not just results no matter the cost, but also a total disdain for nearly everyone around him since they most likely aren't as perfect as him.

For January's bloggers wanted prompt, just create a new community blog, start the title with "New Year's evil: [your blog title here]" and tell us about your favorite villains.

From the terrible like Flowey, to forces of nature like Gigyas. Go ham! We won't judge you since we're talking in hypotheticals. As long as we're talking about bad guys since Yoshikage Kira wasn't bad. Kira just wanted to live a peaceful life. He just happened to be a serial killer, you know?
