Hello and welcome to the August edition of the ”Carnival of Video Game Bloggers”. There are lots of great entries this month, so let’s right to them!
We start with James Nicholls of Gaming Legends, who presents a well-written article called “Violence causes Video Games”. Whilst I don’t agree with everything, he makes good points about how other forms of media get an easier ride when it comes to portraying violence.
Jigsaw hc presents a WeeWar.com Review at Jigsaw hc’s Rants & Reviews. I hadn’t actually heard of the game until reading this review, but it looks a little like Advance Wars with a hexagonal grid. If you’re a strategy fan, it’s certainly worth a look.
Fans of wrestling will want to check out MAK Johnson’s WWE Smackdown vs RAW 2007 Creations – 5th August Creation Archive. There are tonnes of tutorials for creating your favourite wrestlers in WWE Smackdown vs RAW 2007.
Jigsaw hc returns to give us an in-depth All-Pro Football 2K8 Review. If you’re unsure about buying this title, hopefully his review will help you.
In a similar vein, TherapyDoc from Everyone Needs Therapy presents “THIS is love?“. It’s a great article that looks at how people get involved in virtual worlds and can end up ruining their real life whilst “succeeding” in an alternative world.
Holly Ord presents Another Reason Why I Hate Summer at the fantastically named Menstrual Poetry. As I write this it’s raining outside (again), so I can’t really comment on summer as it seems to have skipped over England completely.
Since the release of Brain Age, there have been a tonne of Brain Training games released. Alvaro Fernandez presents Brain Training Games and “Games” at SharpBrains, which provides a detailed guide for finding a brain training game that’s right for you.
That’s it for this issue! You can submit an article for the next carnival of video game bloggers using the carnival submission form, and view past and previous editions at the blog carnival index page.
If you’re looking for more carnival fun, check out the “carnival of video game production” over at GameProducer.net. Although it’s aimed at the people that make video games, there’s a wide range of articles to suit every taste.
