Carnival of Video Game Bloggers, January 2012

Welcome to the belated January 2012 edition of Carnival of Video Game Bloggers. I blame Runes of Magic and Sonic Generations for the delay. In any case, on to this month’s submissions.

Wesley Copeland of VGI presents EA in Lawsuit Over Free Copies Of Battlefield posted at Video Games Interactive. Here’s a quick piece on a Lawsuit EA is involved in. Hopefully this is one more push on them to get their act together, but honestly, I’m not expecting much to come of it. Still, it would be sweet if they were somehow forced to make good on their promises.

Will presents Are Strategy Guides Worth It? posted at Former Banker, saying, “Is it ever worth it to fork out $20 to buy one?” Will hits my thoughts on strategy guides pretty solidly in this piece. Hard to disagree, unless you want the physical copy as a collector’s item.

Jesse Leigh presents Deep Sea – Shifting from entertainment to experience posted at Gamer MC. Here we have some info about a game that sounds like an interesting deviation from the norm. I’m not about to drop traditional visual gaming for it, but it could be interesting to try.

Jesse Leigh presents The real cause of piracy posted at Gamer MC. Want to know why I don’t buy from EA or Ubisoft, on console or PC? This article nails it. If only the big publishers would listen to some common sense about how to deal with piracy.

Jesse Leigh presents Pre-order? I’ll pass posted at Gamer MC. An interesting read about pre-ordering and how it is used for marketing.

Patrick Dunkley presents What is Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning? posted at PC RPG Reviews & Previews | Single player fantasy roleplaying games for 2012.. I’m downloading the demo of this game via Steam as I type this, and depending on what I find, I may have to purchase. In the meantime, this article has tons of good info on the game, and you should check it out.

John M presents A look at Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing on the iPhone posted at iPhone Experience, saying, “SEGA’s classic racer makes it debut on the iPhone, but is it a winner?” A brief review of Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing on the iPhone, there’s not much more to say. Except why does Sonic use a car? Have to level the playing field so he doesn’t auto-win or something?

That concludes this edition of the Carnival of Video Game Bloggers. Join us next month for more great gaming info. You can use the carnival submission form to submit posts for next month’s carnival. Be sure to check out some of the posts of other submitters and perhaps leave a friendly comment or two if you like their work.

    This is a great collection of articles. I’d love to get my own site included in the carnival. How would I do that?

    Now that I’ve fixed the above link, you can use the carnival submission form linked at the bottom of this, or any other Carnival of Video Game Bloggers post. Sorry about the missing link there.

    Also, please be aware, as I noted in the latest carnival posting, the Carnival is on hiatus until November. You can still submit posts you would like included, it will just be a couple months before the next Carnival is up.
