The Community Countdowns (Feb 12-18)
Welcome g1s to another edition of The Community Countdowns! This week, I'm counting down my Top 10 favorite g1 videos of the week and my Top 15 favorite g1 blogs of the week. Let's get started.
In this week's Top 10 g1 videos, Metaking reviews Resident Evil: Revelations. Nicobbq counts down his Top 10 Mario Party 5 Mini-Games. Paradise and Fairies takes a look at a handheld Metal Slug title. Tom the Iron Man presents even more footage from MagFest 09. Hard4Games takes a breif look at a few more N64 Disc Drive games. The Game Sack duo look at some Japanese exclusives. The Heavy Metal Gamer does something special for Valentines Day. Digressing and Side-Questions takes an interesting look at Smash Bros. JoetheShadowMan hosts this week's g1 Digital Forecast. Gaijin Gamer explores Japanese culture through the Mario series and The Gaming Historian remebers an under-rated classic.
Yes. I realize I just listed 11 but rather than admiting to a mistake, I'm just going to say that Metaking and Nicobbq tied for 10th. OK? Good. :)
