So I just realized the other day that I've officially been doing the Friday Recaps for over a year now! My first recap ever was August 5th
of last year (too bad I'm terrible at remembering anniversaries of things, or this announcement would have been more timely). I honestly can't believe I've been doing this for a year already; time sure has flown! I hope all you wonderful people have enjoyed my recaps over the past year. I really enjoy being a part of the Recaps team, and I hope to still be doing this for a few more years at least. Keep up the great writing everyone, you guys make this job so awesome! :D
Oh, also, like everyone else I have been playing Borderlands 2 this week, and it's freaking fantastic! I'm playing a Gunzerker using primarily shotguns and sniper rifles. I'm guessing sniper rifles are an odd choice for a Gunzerker, but I just really like sniper rifles so I'm gonna use them anyway! I've only just made it to Sanctuary, at a measly level 10, but the game is blowing my mind so far. I have absolutely zero complaints: the graphics, the sound effects, the dialog, the voice acting, the gameplay... everything in this game is awesome! I spent several minutes just gazing in awe at the ice on some frozen lake; it just looked so beautiful! And the sound of my footsteps in the snow is like music to my ears, as weird as that may sound! I'm gushing, I know.
Unfortunately, I can't seem to get my PS3 to connect to the internet for some reason, so I wasn't able to play with you guys during tonight's FNF, but someday I would definitely like to join in!
Alright, let's get to these 'caps so that I can get back to my game!
* - Fame Designer returns to give us the scoop on the RPG he's been working on! It seems he's totally reworked his idea into something new, and so far it sounds really interesting!
A - whatsacow compiles a list of the Top 10 most overrated games, and it's actually not half bad.
A - KingSigy wants to know why ports of classic video games, such as Jet Set Radio, seem to be getting relatively low review scores. Are the games just not good anymore? How can that be?
A - LogicallyDashing lists the Top 5 video game sidekicks. I do agree with the number one choice actually; Trip is just awesome!
A - TheKodu believes modding may be the future of video games.
S - StriderHoang continues his history of Pokemon's metagame, entering the Ruby and Sapphire era. It still boggles my mind that people can figure this stuff out and form these kinds of strategies, but it is kinda cool.
F - Friday Night Fights on the PS3 + Borderlands 2? Nope, Dark Souls!
F - Friday Night Fights on the PC + Borderlands 2? Nope, Gambling Addiction 2012!
F - Friday Night Fights on the 360 + Borderlands 2? Nope, Black Ops 2!
D - Project MILITARY has decided to start a Dtoid blog to promote their new indie game, MILITARY, which is currently in development.
$ - September 21st UK releases and bargains.
V - Genki-JAM attempts to play through the Kirby franchise... without flying! It's a very interesting idea which makes a seemingly easy game much more difficult.
F - Multiple posts by Project MILITARY, which should probably have been combined into one post.
F - Another post which should definitely have been combined with the first one.
