A sudden rise in popularity.

It’s odd, I was expecting my daily diary type of blog would actually drive people away from here… but oddly enough, I’ve doubled if not tripled my daily traffic.

I want to thank all the readers I suppose, and again I want to invite everyone to come on over to the forum, and just chat and fucking enjoy yourselves.

Also, we just got a .com, so the forum address is now www.theculturedgamers.com

We have that super smash bros brawl contest 2 happening, so please, join in on that action? what’s the worst that can happen by joining up and entering the contest?ssb2



The more Mature System

We keep hearing how the 360 and the PS3 are the more mature systems of this generation. Let me tell you why I think that’s a false statement.

The majority of gamers who play the 2 aforementioned systems are consisted of a majority of teens (Don’t believe me, turn on xbox live for example… anybody else sick of hearing pre-pubescent kids say “Pwned”) So why is there such a teenage following of the consoles?

Well, like in all mediums, blood, guns and shooting people are all the cliched symbolism of “cool” So of course when your that age, you are going to try and fit in with what’s “cool”.

A sheep kind of mentality, no originality what so ever. Does that sound like a very mature reasoning to like the consoles? nope.

The other argument often heard is “well the graphics are gorgeous.” Extremely shallow and near sided perspective to say the least. Is a mature person honestly that shallow? I don’t really think so.

Last argument: Having to dismiss the other console as being “kiddy”. So just because your not comfortable enough with yourself within society, you have to join the popular kids, and all make fun of the same thing. Again not very mature.

I think the most mature system is the wii, simply because of all the facts aforementioned.

Super Mario Galaxy Review… The king Returns for his crown.

So, many of my hours have recently been consumed with Super Mario Galaxy. I would normal write a little overview here, but come on, we all know what the game is… and if you don’t… well email me, and I’ll send you money for you to buy a clue.

Graphics:

Hands down probably the best looking Wii game yet. It’s just simply gorgeous, and I’ve been really blown away by its presentation. Who thought an italian plummer could look so pretty?

GAMEPLAY:

The gameplay is once again the best 3d platformer I’ve ever played, everything about it is just perfect. It makes you want to take all those other 3d platformers you played, and put them in the garbage. An interesting 2nd player mode is presented, and it gives your buddy a little more to do then just watch you play.

SOUND:

The music is just astonishing. I never expected such a thing from a mario game… but theres actually some live orchestra music in this game… and it just blows my mind.

IN CONCLUSION:

Super mario Galaxy bring platforming to a brand new sort of perfection, it has raised the bar. The game also brings back nostalgic moments from our childhood with songs from super mario bros. 3. Our wait for mario 128 sure was worth it.
