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- 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.
T- Political games. I can't wait.
T-TheJesusNinja26 has a perks wishlist for Fallout: New Vegas.
T- I dunno, Droll. Sounds kinda gay.








F- Haters gonna hate.

F- What did I just say?
F- Umm... hi? What the hell am I looking at?

Lets Do Launch

In case you've been living under a rock or just waiting on NieR: Automata (thanks for the delay Amazon!), Nintendo just launched its newest console. Whether it's a success or a failure remains to be seen, but many people have bought themselves this shiny new console for their home. It's been a while since we've seen this sheer amount of excitement over a console, and a Nintendo one, no less, considering the amount of goodwill they probably have since the Wii U.

But the QP has been having endless buzz over the Switch, despite concerns over hardware faults in the Joy-Con or cheaply produced docks. Personally, I'd love one despite the lack of software on day one. I mean, I could play Zelda while at work. And not a handheld Zelda either. A proper, huge console-designed Zelda! Asides from that, it's all about the love of having shiny new tech in your hands. So that's what this month's bloggers wanted will be about: console launches, the hype and the release into getting it into your hands.

To participate, title your blog "Let's Do Launch: [your title here]" and use the "Bloggers Wanted" tag, and in a general sense, talk about your favorite launches. We've had the PS4 and Xbone years back but were we genuinely excited or just looking forward to it? Or how about where you were when the GameCube released? Don't worry too much about celebrating the exact launch date, either. I still clearly remember the time I got my Sega Genesis from Costco, complete in a bundle with Ecco the Dolphin and Donald Duck's QuackShot.

Don't worry about being positive or timely. Did you grow up to see the Vectrex launch? Go ahead and enlighten us youngins about how much of a love/hate relationship you may or may not have. Still rocking an Ngage? I'm sure you are. So how did it feel to purchase such a mistake of the universe? Go ahead and let us know, and eventually, we'll get around to promoting it to the front page!
