Well, we certainly had another exciting day today in the Cblogs, didnít we?
Much like Andy Dixonís blog a few weeks ago, a lot of great things were said in Charís blog today, and especially in the comments. I think I speak for a lot of us when I say that seeing Dale, Jordan, Chris and everyone else get into the community to tell us that everythingís going to be alright gave us a much-needed boost in confidence. Me, Iím already curious to see what theyíve got planned for us next week, the little teases. (Oh, and in the mean time congrats to Chris for the promotion!)
At any rate, reading all of what they had to say made more confident in Destructoidís future than Iíve been in a long time. Weíre going to make it through this and weíre doing it together if I have to drag you buttholes kicking and screaming.
...Which makes it kind of ironic that I wonít be having much time for it at all. Now please donít take this as some sort of major announcement or whatever, but I am going to cut back on my Recaps time a little, and if the procrastination demon doesnít get the best of me Dtoid as a whole. All of the schoolwork I have to do simply doesnít allow me to spend too much time on the internet anymore as much as Iíd like to. As much as I like doing the caps, every hour spent on these Ėisms is an hour I couldíve spent finishing that chapter on EU competition law.
Again, and I canít stress this enough, this is by no means
a resignation of any sort. Hell, Destructoid is one of the few things keeping me sane right now, so Iíll be damned if Iíll give any of this up. That's just the effect you guys have on me, I guess. Just donít expect any in-depth Shadeisms from me for at least a couple of weeks or any witty pictures grasped from the depths of the internet. Dunno, does
anyone expect that from me? Probably not. What you should expect is me to come back swinging once everything is done and dusted. It will happen. Until that time, these Ėisms will probably consist of a few random paragraphs tops, and on the off chance that Iíve had time to play video games a word or two on that.
Either way, Iím going to call it a day now and let the blogs speak for themselves. I swear to god that chapter is getting done today
Oh, wait. ONE FINAL THING: As I post this it is Friday the 8th of November, which means that today is the last
day you can enter my contest! Do you want to win The Typing of the Dead, Dark Souls, The Binding of Isaac, Pathologic and Trine?
Then get your fat behind over there and enter! The winner is going to be selected tomorrow as early as I can be bothered, so donít miss it!
* - If there was ever a blog I'd topsauce for the comments alone, this would be it. The comments here are wonderful and reassuring. A big thanks to everyone who voiced their thoughts here, especially to the staff. And a big thanks to Char for voicing his concerns with the site in a reasonable way.
* - And here's the follow-up, with even more wonderful comments. Gratz again Chris (I feel like such a newbie for not remembering you as Magnalon)

A - Brings a tear to my eye: UsurpMyProse breaks up with his trusty 360. I hope they find love again.

A - Gearbox has been doing some things spectacularly wrong if you ask GlowBear.
A - Grethiwha gives a quick update on what Jim Sterling is going to be up to in the future, and gives him a proper farewell. Because he deserves it.

I - I've seen you around on the forums, welcome to our turf!
