HELLO g1's!!! It's me, the music-game lover Foxdark22! And I'm here to get laid and write the Spotlight and I'm all out of laids...
This time the great Smoke108 joins me in the effort of showcasing the best damn content on the site.
But first, we have to congratulate, celebrate and something-late Tom The Iron Man who is g1 OF THE YEAR 2012!!! The announcement was made in MAGFest (That game got a convention???) and it was different from pàst years since it was decided by the SA staff, but anyway... ALL HAIL THE g1 OF THE YEAR!
deadite 1288 has a nice remix of Metroid Prime songs.

LousyTactician has some nice "artwork" (hehe) for all of us including some Miiverse pics of the Dafoe Community on Wii U which are awesome. Go around and take a look, I DARE YOU!
I vote for ET on the Atari 2600
Darkseid2 wants YOU to tell him the 5 games every gamer should play, for him to make a big ultimate list with the 20 games that gather the most votes so that we can add them to our backlog (AKA stack of shame).
Want to choose the Top g1's of 2012?
Since some people were mad (or butthurt) about the lack of voting for g1OTY, the guys over at g1 Features are making the greatest community list: The Top Ten g1's of 2012. Go ahead and vote in the comments (Hint: vote for the g1 Spotlight)
The usual weird stuff from the forums happens this week (kidding guys) as we have lots of fun things happening.
Are you South Korean?
Because NemesisTrestkon is looking for fellow g1's to make a community to play the StarCraft II HOTS beta with normal people.
Insert Canada joke here
The NHL is back! I didn't know is was out! Because I don't care about the lame sports of the North of America. But if you wanna talk about it go here.
All things SGC 2013!
Yes, go talk about roommates and travellers and fellow g1's that like the same stuff as you in the SGC section of the forums!
IT'S TIME FOR THE ULTIMATE DEATH BATTLE!!!
Finally we will know who is the best last son of an exploding home planet that arrived to Earth and started saving it from evil guys! It's Goku VS Superman!!!
Also watch Craig play with his balls... in Out of The Box for NBA Baller Beats! The weird basketball-rhythm-kinect game.
And finally go see the Day One of APEX 2013 with the Smash Bros Tournaments and see Ben and Nick suck at videogames (mostly).
A good Virtual Boy game??? THAT'S CRAZY!
And it's not Mario??? THAT'S CRAZY! Yeah, because it's Wario in his only true 3D adventure: Wario Land. Come and check the review by MegaSilverX1 who's still trying to recover his sight after playing.
At least you can play as the Dtoid crew...
But besides being a GTA type of game in 8-bit. Is Restro City Rampage a good game? Or is just a collection of references from all over? Check BygJuce's review-opinion-thing!
It's cheap on the 3DS eShop so...
TheWaddleDeeKing (I always thought that Waddle Doo's were leaders... heh) is making a review on a GameGear gem (?) Dragon Crystal. The game is not aging that well though.
Now that we have to wait for the new games...
This review applies! DarkHyruleLord shows us the good, the bad and the ugly (wait, that's him) and the evil of the game Pokémon Black Version 2. I say it's prety damn good, but those medals man... UGH
I like the ones in Call of Duty
Wait... oh... RPG's as game genre... Noble Team 1 has a very diverse list of the Top Ten RPG's of all time forever and ever. and if you don't agree then you are a poopy head.
Everyone's list is different
That's why we check the Top Ten NES games by Dark Magician. Does it have Predator, Stack Up and Bibl Buffet? Watch the video to find out.
It's pronounced NINJA GAI-DEN! HA!
KwingReviews has review in the brand-new-ish game Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge. Could it be that they fixed the awful PS360 version? Could it? Watch the Wii U review to find out.
All of my wat
Really... Madhog Thy Master plays Lesbian Spiders Queens of Mars, I have little to say here... WATWATWAT
New show by former g1oty!
Fellow latin HybridRain has a new show called The Viewer Community where he checks stuff from the site and talks about it and it just the first episode... and he chose to talk about DakrHyruleLord's list of ScrewAttack moments of 2012.
Backlog, backlog, backlog
The curse of all of us, well IkiFoo made a nice video about the games he finished in 2012... I still have about half of my physical games unfinished and probably it's 3/4 of the digital ones. Hoping that being very poor this year helps!
It is fiction because these guys could only be experts in a novel!!!
TROLOLOLOL. The new edition of Ask the Experts has a very pirate-ish theme, maybe, with the biggest question of all: What's the meaning of life?
I'm looking forward to Pokémon X and Y now
Are the guys over at GameOverNation Podcast agreeing with me? Well, you need to listen-watch to find out. Also we may or may not hear about Last of Us being Uncharted with less brown people.
You all fail the Hippocratic Oath!
Wait, what? Ohhh Hypocrisy... in gamers? HOW PREPOSTEROUS! So Pandsu gives a fair amount of reasoning in how some games get the hate and others like Super Mario 64 here get all of the love.
Metroid Other M isn't that bad
If you turn off the TV... That's why Samus Aran (!!!!!) has this blog on how to fix that game. But honestly, for me, just press mute on the cutscenes and it's mostly fixed.
Why can't we be friends?
Maybe not friends but actually not ignore each other. I don't use the forums because I don't have that much time and I assume a lot feel like that too. So McKnackus I is here with why the forums are important and shouldn't be ignored.
PARTY HARD PARTY HARD PARTY HARD
Woodyman (that jerk) organized his now usual g1 Holiday Party and along with some other participants now brings the recap. Was it a success? A failure? It needed more Foxdark22? Check it and find out most of the answers.
Why don't you love them?
Because they are underappreciated, that's why... HARHARHAR. DrCoolGuy and Thunderplant have a very comprehensive list of Pokémon that are underused by the guys that play with EV's and IV's and OU's and all that stuff.
What do you call a Smash Bros on Sony?
A Playstation Battle Royale... with cheese!!! LOLOLOLOL. Bad jokes aside Elmo 3000 has a new feature in which he only has an hour to write about any subject, this week is PSASBR. I have to admit that the stages look nice.
Oh, that's where Zerg Rush came from...
Now I know it because NemesisTreatkon aka The MasterWhooves (DUUUUDE) has started a StarCraft Retrospective with the origins of the first game. Also South Korea.
This thing is old... OOOOLLLLLDDDDD I tell ya. (Maybe not that old) but it's a great read from EliteKill, it's about bad things in good games. I really hated the Assassin's Creed II thing where there was "missing sequences due to a bug in the Animus" because when I played it I had no internet on my Xbox to donwload the campaign DLC. UGH.
You know, the little things that makes us hate our favorite games.
The g1's (Remember guys: lower case g for g1 of ScrewAttack, upper case g for G1 of Transformers) got into a little controversy this week over the meaning of the concept and if you are more or less g1 if you go to the forums or not. I feel that entiltement is never good, but I guess we are all guilty of that sometimes.
So, our mod Debaser has a great blog of Why we are g1's and how it applies today. Thing is: Stop being idiots, everyone if you go to the main site, the forums, facebook or twitter.
That's it for the week! Sorry it was a little late but I was changing tabs and then my computer derped for a second and I accidentally pressed the X and I lost a lot of progress... it happens.
Remember to be nice to each other, study a lot, play your games and read the newspaper.
Thanks again Smoke for your help
And this is Foxdark22 saying goodbye till next Spotlight or maybe before (?) BYE!!!!
