LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 11/5/09 + Strykisms

   0


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.

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.
