Hey all. Happy... well, Tuesday I guess. Some other commitments kept me busy last night and unfortunately nobody was able to sub in, but since the bosses are on site today I figured I'd take the time to do the recap this morning. In the interest of tidiness I decided to tidy up how I organized the recaps, grouping similar categories together. Hopefully that'll make them easier to read. :)

Not a lot to say Gamewise. I picked up LEGO Star Wars: TCS for the 360 to replace the Gamecube copies I sold awhile ago. Just a fun game that didn't overcomplicate the series like LEGO Batman did. The only game I've really been playing though is Mega Man 9 on XBLA, which I originally picked up on WiiWare but didn't beat before selling off my Wii. That game plays like a dream with the Mad Catz SFIV fightpad, and is a very solid Mega Man game to boot!

Looking at yesterday's cblogs, here's one thing that Mr DIllinger's Video Game: The Movie piece made me wonder about: why do we bitch and moan about developers making worlds that are brown, edgy, and full of attitude, and then proceed to do the same thing when we make fanfics/movies/art from existing games? While that was an entertaining read, the idea has been done so many times...


*- SansJason shares his love for Jimmles and his monocle
*- Great counterpoint to Sterling's Pokemon Red article
*- Kauza shares their personal experiences with Suikoden 2


A- walkyourpath's a fanboy. Pass it on
A- SilverDragon's 100th post, and a mishmash of games
P- Refused Classification podcast records... well, tonight now I suppose
S- What'd you get this week?

C- Raffle rage, and a Dropitz contest from Atlus
E- Aborto is attempting to organize Dtoid happenings at SD Comic Con
S- I'm pretty sure there's an easy way to get the bracelet from that crow. Look it up and save a headache
S- Not a fail this time, but come on now... At least try to enjoy your games
S- Funny, but why does every fan adaptation of a gaming world have to be all dark and seedy? Don't we lambaste developers for doing the same thing?
T- Oxzio's character choices in BlazBlue


D- I'm going to assume this is the dev promoting their game. Looks cute and has kitties so I'm cool with it
N- Batthink informs us of a few lesser known recent/upcoming games
T- Our wallets are thankful that the next generation of consoles hasn't even been announced yet
T- What nebones has been playing, with a side of cosplay
T- I am curious if the cross compatibility thing will easy the L4D2 bitching and moaning
T- Fatal Frame is based on a true story?
T- It definitely is heartbreaking to come back to a loved game years later only to suck at it
V- Someone put some Earthbound in my LittleBigPlanet


A- I stopped caring about Gundam awhile ago, but damn that's cool
A- SWPM celebrates some art Ashley Davis, and some art she did for them
S- JLanphear gets a lot of stuff for someone who "games quickly became scarce prey for" :S
S- Sweet Zombie Jesus that's a lot of stuff... but that Mega Man V cart will soon be mine <3


R- A view of Michael Jackson's arcade. Damn... *insert joke about it worth being molested over*
R- Don't mess with Tavendale's Blood Bowl team!
R- A Hoborg post that isn't a failing flame war??? Forget 2012, armageddon is upon is now! *runs to the hills*
V- A lot of Persona flavoured videos for those of you into that sort of thing


F- Might've been relevant when it was posted, but the video's been removed now so this fails
F- Creepy, short and not entertaining, Oxzio Omega hits the fail trifecta!
S- Sorry, but it was on the front page already
S- The MJ thing was mentioned before, and the community really shouldn't try to be cblog police

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.
