The MobyGames news and forum sections have loyal followings of users and contributors, but I'm always tickled to see that many of them have MobyGames-themed blogs of their own. Multimedia Mike is covering an ambitious "one game a day" project in his Gaming Pathology blog, and WildKard was suitably inspired enough to create his own "NEW game a day" project (how original ;-) at WildKard's Notepad.
Anyone have any MobyGames-themed blogs I've missed? Post them in the forums!

That's pretty scary...I was just browsing through both those blogs for the first time and then came back here and here's this post!
Both fascinating blogs, btw.
Hm, strangely enough, I *rarely* write about games on my thing. I can only remember a serious text (about deficient translations) in about a year of it running.
Me neither. Games just don't tickle me enough. There haven't been good enough games in ages to get me excited enough, not even S.T.A.L.K.E.R did this, although it so far looks a good game.
What makes you think a game has to be good in order to warrant writing about it? :-) I've exposed myself to at least 80 games so far for my gaming blog and a very negligible fraction has been what I would consider "good" and worth playing again.
Well, maybe I was unclear. I mean there hasn't been anything worth writing about, good or bad. If I write reviews, I'll send them here and link them on my blog but that's about it.
Seems like I lean towards more serious (and boring!) stuff...

Really? No games that fundamentally changed the way you think, live and breath? Boy, you missed the chance to live GeekHood way of life.
...er, it that a good thing?

Heh, I get your point, but I have to say Ultima IV did that to a geek in a very vulnerable age (I must have been thirteen or fourteen at the time).
I mean I just rarely find anything in gaming that makes me want to write something.
Well I have a Livejournal, but I rarely write about games there. I mostly bitch about my life.
Considering what's happening in my life... I may open it up and start writing about games.
I think those two are pretty unique (at least for the moment) *thumbs up*
I write mainly about Computers, Games and Stuff surrounding games (one of the last entries was about game magazines) with a slight private touch once in a while (to compensate the heavy input) and MobyGames is an essential part of it since nearly every link to a game you find in my entries points to MG :).
Please ignore the fact that I haven't actually updated it in 15 days... turns out that "a day" was too difficult for me to remember and I got all confused :) Oh well... the point was to have fun and experience new gaming.... not necessarily to stay on schedule. :)
On a serious note though, I'm going to have to figure out a way to separate the New Game stuff from "everything else" on that blog.
Haven't you got a way of tagging blog entries? The new Blogspot version has this option. Another way would be to create an entry with links to the New Game entries, but you'd have to manually update that every time, so this would be quite suboptimal.
I talk about video games pretty frequently on my blog and occasionally MobyGames. Note that my ex and several other good friends of mine are strippers, so it is frequently NSFW.
Why bring the game discussion to the strippers when you could bring the strippers to the game discussion?

I maintain a crappy site here which has a seldom-updated blog. Don't complain about anything you read there because it was all written on the dregs of my time and effort.
You're overly humble. It's not crappy at all, I liked it -- varied, interesting subjects, well-written and not too earnest, just how I like my personal blogs. (Same for Ace of Seven's blog, btw.) I'm looking forward to the next article (any way to subscribe?) Ah, and rest assured, Christmas in Germany is just like in Australia. We had a neighbor once, his house made me think of a kermis, or a brothel. Hallucinating.
In fact, forget about game discussion at all!
