LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 8/24/10 + Pendeltonisms

So I'm going to try and get to bed super-early tonight. Why? Tomorrow is, quite possibly, the biggest gaming day of the year. Two of my most hotly anticipated titles will be release simultaneously, filling me with more gaming pleasure than I can probably stand. First up is Shank, which was nicely reviewed on the front page by one Nick Chester. Ever since I witnessed it in all its cartoony glory at PAX Prime last year, I've waited not-so-patiently to try out the whole shebang. Alongside that is Scott Pilgrim: The Game. As a massive fan of the comics and movie (the movie's better *audience gasps*), this game is like a fucking dream project to see in motion. Both games are frantic, gorgeous, top-notch brawlers, and both will take my attention away from any PAX planning and real-world activities for at least 24 hours. Anyone else looking forward to possibly the two greatest games of the year tomorrow?

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.
