Weekly Roundup

I'm a Human Inbox's Favorite Post of the Week:
The Grand List Of Console Role Playing Game Clich├ęs

I really enjoyed this page even though it's probably been around for years. Who knows, I might have read it a couple of years back and just forgot about it. Regardless, for the next couple of days I made my way through the list and thoroughly enjoyed it. This link only received 10 Clicks but if you haven't read it, you should do so. And here's a good opportunity to point out a few more examples. These two actually seem to apply more to Anime than RPGs though:
"You Couldn't Get To Sleep Either, Huh?"
If any character in the game ever meets any other character standing alone at night looking at the moon, those two will eventually fall in love.

Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely (Althena Rule)
If a good guy is manipulated to the side of evil, they will suddenly find a new inner strength that will enable them to wipe out your whole party with a wave of their hand.

Reader's Favorite Post of the Week:
PSP Bubble Wrap

PSP Bubble Wrap actually got 64 Clicks this week, but that's because Kotaku picked it up. As for the post which got the most Un-linked clicks, it would have to be the Sandcastle Competition with 17 Clicks.
