Blog Herding – The Best Blogs Of The Community (October 6, 2016)

by Game Informer Staff on Oct 06, 2016 at 07:35 AM

Video games took a backseat recently for many thanks to Marvel's Luke Cage (please give us a video game starring Power Man), but not for our bloggers. Read up!

Community Blogs For September 29 – October 5:

MoblinsForMatt – An Afterword With Corey Austen
MightyMagikarp interviews Corey Austen, a gamer who raised money for SUDEP research. It's always nice to see hard work put in for an interview, so give this a read if you'd like to catch up on what Austen's been up to.

Monthly Gradebook: September 2016
They may not all be new games, but Attackcobra has been busy playing games to completion, and begins his blog feature with Kingdom Hearts 3D. It sounds like a lot of fun, but as someone who stuck with the series in the early years, I've kind of moved on from Mickey and co.

The Do's and Don'ts of Online Gaming Etiquette
Gaming online is practically a health hazard with the wrong group screaming into your ear. If you're one of those people, give Mz Chanandler Bong's blog a read to find out how to treat others online – and how not to.

What we'd all (mostly me) would like to see in the next Animal Crossing
I've never played this series, so I can't comment on Boo's blog too much. I do, however, always enjoy some wilderness exploration, or video game exploration in general. It took me 20 hours to even walk into New Vegas thanks to all of the distracting exploration.

Unboxing treasures and remembering the Golden Age of Co-op 
Brendon Curzio had me at co-op, and his blog delivers. All I can say is that Gunstar Heroes and Goof Troop did cooperative gameplay right.

Luke Cage has a Villain Problem
I loved Luke Cage, finishing it in two days. However, I do agree a little bit with Thomas Loughney's blog on the villain issue in the show. I can't write much more in order to avoid spoilers, but I will say that Luke Cage is a darn good show. Sweet Christmas.

Writing Challenge Responses:

Pitching Ideas: Nova, The New Zombie Thriller!
While this is a different take on the writing challenge, I can dig StarterPack's game pitch containing zombies. I mean, they seem overplayed, right? But then our blogger mentions STALKER and things get super interesting and creeptastic.

Community Writing Challenge: Pitching My Dream Stories
Haley Shipley tells us what she'd like to write about professionally, and I hope she gets the chance to tell these tales. She wants to write on everything from historical accuracy to whether or not games are apolitical.

Community Writing Challenge:

Let's take a break this week to recharge.
