Inspired by Kotaku’s latest venture, the kids in the forums have requested the advent of a “game club” type of project where everyone plays through a game together and discusses it. Hardly the most original of ideas (not least of all because it was directly swiped from another site), but I like it anyway. Enough to sponsor it, in fact — the nerd-discussion equivalent of loving the Norelco shaver so much you buy the company.
If you’d be interested in participating, please swing by the relevant thread and place your vote. If you guys decide to go the second route, the first selections will be Marathon 2 and MGS3… in other words, I will frequently use it as an excuse to make myself play things I need to catch up on. So factor that into your decisions. Also, feel free to suggest a better name than Game Club.
It’s official. Join the Gamespite Fun Club today! If it catches on, maybe I’ll even make stickers or something. I dunno. I’m feeling punchy today.
You can jump into to our two active conversation threads: Durandal and Castlevania. Well, I say active, but so far no one has actually posted anything. Sooooo… we’ll see if anything actually comes of this.
