NEW BLOG SERIES IDEA! NEED SUGGESTIONS! COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION A MUST!

   0
That title reads like a Craigslist ad. Don't worry. I'm not selling sex.

This idea has been floating around in my head for quite sometime. See, RebelFM does a podcast weekly called “Game Club”. They pick an older (preferably cheaper) game, play up to a point, discuss it, and it’s rinse and repeat for about 1 or 2 more episodes. I wanted to try something like that, but scaled down a bit for the community blogs.

Instead of the usual 4 or sometimes even 5 man roundtable discussion I wanted to bring it down to 3 people. Anymore and I think we’d have for too much text in one blog. However, it would be amazing if the people who are not in the week’s discussion would play along with us. Hopefully this will lead to very nice discussion in the comments.

Now let me make this clear. We will not be reviewing the game. And by that I mean that this shouldn’t be used as a buyer’s guide. We will be free to discuss any spoilers up until the part in which we decide to stop playing for that section. The blog will be cut up into however many times we may need (max will probably be 3).

I know it’s nearing holiday season. Games are being released and we’re all becoming overwhelmed. Some of us can’t afford to play an older game whether it be because you’re broke or you just don’t have time to play. I’ll try to make this first one as easy as possible.

We’ll have to pick a short game. We don’t want to spend too much time on what could be a failure. Though. if it does indeed become a failure hits wise but it ends up being fun for the writers there’s no reason why we can’t continue doing it. It will still be better to test the waters with a much shorter game. I’m thinking maybe 6 hours tops. We can then figure out what changes we need to make -- what worked and what didn’t.

So any suggestions? Know of any short games we can play? Leave a comment.

If you want to be a part of this little experiment, drop me an e-mail at alexandorator [at] gmail dot com.

Cross your fingers!

EDIT: Thanks for all of the suggestions! I'll start looking at all my options and will announce something on Monday!
