Cblogs of 9/10/09 + Strykisms (Surplus dTunes Edition)

   0


If you have been following RonBurgandy's awesome dTunes series, you will know that I have been your gracious host this week. I figure what better way to pimp my contributions than to deliver a special song roundup right here on the recaps! Below, I have posted four songs representing each day I have hosted. These songs were not featured on their respective days; they are unique to these recaps! Isn't that special?

This is all building up to tomorrow's grand finale when I unveil the ultra, super-secret, mega-hyper, fifth-day musical artist! Why did I do all this? Because today was a boring day on the blogs and I thought you all deserved a little something extra.

Day 1: Random a.k.a. Mega Ran
"Final Battle" feat. Loose

Sampling "Last Boss" from Mega Man 6, this collaboration is sure to get the club jumpin'!



Day 2: The Grammar Club
"Bank Holiday"

In this music video, Shael does his best Kanye West impersonation. Also, MC Frontalot cameo! The first 15 seconds are dark, so don't mind that.



Day 3: Eurodance One-Hit Wonders
"Mr. Vain" by Culture Beat

I know what I want! Do you?



Day 4: Richard Cheese
"Star Wars Cantina"

This one is actually a parody of Barry Mannilow's "Copacabana" featuring Star Wars references.



Day 5: ???

What will tomorrow bring? It's a mystery! Fancy a guess? In fact, let's turn this into a contest! If you can guess tomorrow's artist, I will mail you $20! Hell, I bet ten bucks you won't even guess the correct genre! I mean, what pattern am I following here? Monday was hip-hop, Tuesday was nerdcore, Wednesday was Eurodance, and today was lounge. I'm a wild card, people!

Remember, if you are interested in joining the ranks of the dTunes crew and sharing your favorite jams with the community, read this and drop RonBurgandy an email. He's always looking for fresh meat!

Anyway, on to the recaps.


*- A few months back, garganroo whipped up a badass survival-horror concept that caught the interest of a publisher. He really should return to the project and make something out of it!

*- "Leave Lara alone!" atheistium has a bone to pick with you, Burch!

*- At PAX, blehman made a face and it stuck for the whole weekend.

*- These are your video game role models. Why can't you be more like them?


S- In the latest Gamer Obscura, Stevil plays the gaming equivalent of Under Siege 2.
S- Overlooked Thursday delivers the hardcore you've been waiting for with House of the Dead: Overkill.
S- dTunes, the megaStryke Chronicles, Day 4: Richard Cheese.
P- OHMYGOD! GamingGoddess made a podcast!


E- The KoF XII contest is now open to canucks...
E- ... and is officially called The King of Dtoiders 2009. And you can win a Neo Geo Pocket Color! Wooo!


S- So Gandysampras saw Hamza's lower shark fin at PAX. In other news, I need a shower.
C- aborto learned 10 things (actually 16) this past week at PAX.
B- On 9/9/09, Reverend Macro celebrated the Dreamcast.
B- thebigghurt gushes in this second part of his Dreamcast love-a-thon. The first part is in the fail section below. I think you'll understand why this is up here and the other is below.
B- The Incredible Edible Egg wishes the Dreamcast a belated birthday.
R- Sedidwif mourns his grandmother. Moment of silence.


N- madman0017 is more than a little excited that Teknoman is going to be in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.
N- Oh mommy, yes! It's the latest Euro release list!

T- Tascar sorta wants to buy The Beatles: Rock Band but sorta kinda doesn't, ya know?
T- That's just, like, your opinion, man.


All the culture you need is in those videos up above.


R- Animated Toupee shows us how to make Firefox tabs act like the Windows 7 taskbar.
R- Not necessarily gaming related, but still worth a read. It seems that Anonymous has taken action against Australia's proposed Internet filter.
?- On 9/9/09, Cutie Honey celebrated Cirno Day. Wait... what the fuck?
?- THis Mormon-themed Dig Dug comic came from PAX and I... ummm... I don't even... it's... what?


S- Dude, an E3 video? C'mon, now.
F- If you are going to do a multipart series, make sure each entry has some meat on its bones. I can sneeze on my keyboard and come up with more content than this.
F- These thoughts concerning The Beatles: Rock Band would have been fine, but michi's bad attitude has to once fuck everything up. I don't mind, though. Any excuse to fail michi is fine by me.
F- You know, saying that you are going to hide your blog translates to "fail this, please" in Recapanese.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
First Kiss

No matter what the experience was or which game or genre left that strong first impression, such experiences have the potential to open our eyes to the rich history of a series or genre. With any luck, we might find even more to love or something better. A great first experience with RPGs could lead to an undying love affair.

Sometimes a first kiss can be so impactful that the game gets placed on a pedestal and enshrined as a gold standard, which has its own pros and cons. I mean, it is nice to have a basis for comparison, but some folks take it too far. There are people who loved Half-Life, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, or Final Fantasy VII so much that nothing after them really got a fair shake.

So first impressions matter -- they can shape and inform our gaming habits. I grew up on arcades, Nintendo, handhelds, and eventually into RPGs, so much of what I play will be influenced by how I acquired my tastes. I probably like Overwatch a ton because it has a passion for RPG roles, but contextualizes them closer to older shooters focused on objectives more than gear builds and grinding out perks for better killstreaks.

So for this month's Bloggers Wanted, we'd like you head over to the community blogs write about your first kiss, the games that positively influenced you or maybe biased you a little too much for a time. What turned you on to a series or genre? Was it love at first sight? Did it set any expectations in stone or possibly lead you to something better?

Whatever the case might be, remember to use the title "First kiss" and place "Bloggers Wanted" in the tags!
