Blog of The Week 2!

Hey guys, sorry I haven't posted anything since the first blog of the week post, been one hell of a busy week for me. Anyway this week my decision for blog of the week was easy and follower not so much. I may have only 19 followers so far, but they are all good so I guess either way a decision had to be made. Also thanks to AllenTesch for the recommendation of a voting widget. I'm going to add one of those when I have a little more time (also when people comment with blogs they love and follow!). So now onto the main event!

Games, Music, and More

What fascinated me about this blog was his analysis of what is probably one of the most important elements of videos games and their creation, msuic. With in-depth historical analysis of some of the most legendary video game composers and information on music formats and data, this seemed like a no brainer to give heavy props to. Included in his articles on wiki links to give further reading. He does maintain several blogs so while not updated quite regularly, it certainly is a good read that you need to check out and follow.

Creepy + Pasta

When you see a profile pic featuring masky (if you don't get the reference you don't lurk /x/ enough) you know you must be onto something really good, or cliche (ie continuous memes). This time around I was gladly surprised by a very well kept collection of creepypasta (for those not in the know good creepypasta is better then several cans of redbull and adderall when it comes to keeping you up at night, in other words short stories that are copied and pasted over the internet). With everything from corruption of your childhood memories, dark rituals (not just the MTG card either), and even some nightmare retardant thrown in for good measure; I've been following this blog since I began one myself and feel it needs recognition and you should follow it immediately.

That my dear followers is this week's edition of Blog of the Week. I'm quite happy with what I've come up with, are you guys? Let me know!

  6. Hey, sweet! Thanks so much for the acknowledgment! When I first started, I didn't imagine other people would be as interested in the world of video game music. It appears I was wrong!

  7. I love SythnRockEngine's blog! I'm a big fan of old school RPGs, & he's introduced me to a few I've missed out on!
