C-Blog Recaps for 7/20/13 + Goodbye-gasms

   0




This is some bittersweet shit right here. As I said in my whiny blog, I am stepping down from being a recapper. My life is too shit, with too much going on right now, for me to have any extra on my plate. My brain is fucked and everything is..... everything is pretty shit. You guys cheered me up and pulled me out of the deepest part of that funk, but my situation hasn't changed. Thank you all for being so supportive of me. Shit makes me cry like a baby. I'm honored and humbled, to have such support from people like you guys. It gave me drive and helped me not be so down on myself.

The bright side of this is, you get a recapper who is not shit in my place. Let's be real, I suck as a writer. My only skill is that I can convey emotion like a mother fucker. I write from my heart and I believe it shows. Taking my place and returning to you folks is the fantastically awesome: Manchild. That's a big old cup of fuck yeah in my book. I'll still be around as a reservist to suck it up on occasion though. 

This set of recaps is special for me though. It marks my one year anniversary as a recapper. Wish I could do another, but... yeah. Let's end this (I'm getting really sad right now) and have some recaps and stupid pics, shall we?

* - Marche100 tells you about making a game (THANKS OBAMA!) and some other things in this great blog.





C - ManWithNoName has some ponderings on Ninty and the Wii U.

E - Weekend Warriors does video games live.

T - TheManchild is all up in Dark Souls again.

T - Kyle MacGregor tells us his favorites (so far) of 2013. 

T - Pope has some thoughts on TLOU *SPOILERS*

T - DiZZastergaming writes the best press release for Ubisoft I've seen in awhile.







F - Random thoughts, random fail. Take it to the forums.
F - Don't bother telling me what I'm watching, I won't bother watching. FAIL VID.


I'll see you guys in the forums or maybe in a stupid comment on the front page. I love some of you a lot. Except you. Fuck you.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Overstuffed

Is there a holiday or time of the year more indulgent than Thanksgiving? I mean, we cook a turkey that weighs as much as three newborn babies, whip up about a billion sides consisting mostly of carbs and butter, and top the whole thing off with nine different pies, all featuring the main ingredient of "excess." It's equal parts disgusting and awesome, and is definitely my second favorite holiday behind our dearly departed Halloween.

But we were so occupied with whether we could eat six pounds of food in one sitting, that we didn't stop to think if we should. That brings us to November's Bloggers Wanted prompt: Overstuffed.

Playing through Horizon Zero Dawn really got me thinking on this topic. Don't get me wrong, the game has a really cool and fairly unique sci-fi story, the combat is fun and engaging, and the art direction uses vibrant color - a concept that largely died out near the end of the PS2 era, but man, is it long. The map is huge and stuffed with nooks, crannies and collectibles, and boy, by the time I wrapped the story and collected my Platinum trophy the game had really worn out its welcome. It's a shame really, as I truly enjoyed the game for its main components; but by the time I had picked off my ten-thousandth evil villager and performed my ten-billionth stealth kill on a Ravager, I found myself wishing the game would end soon.

I got this feeling about 3/4 of the way into the game. That is not good.

Modern gaming is great in that developers tend to pack in a metric shit-ton of things to do in their games. Modern gaming is also horrible because developers tend to pack in a metric shit-ton of things to do in their games. This tendency to overstuff their games with content is often overwhelming and can cause an otherwise excellent experience to drag. It was less of a problem when I was 18 and had all the time in the world; at 30 with a day job and a family, it's a complete game-changer.

So, beloved Destructoid Community, tell of us a time you felt overstuffed from gaming! It can be from a game you enjoyed that just felt too long like above, a time you binged on all thirty-two Kingdom Hearts titles, a particularly meaty haul of games you got at a yard sale - anything at all that celebrates or at least discusses your Thanksgiving-like excesses in gaming!

Write a blog with "Overstuffed:" and then your subject in the title, and let the world know of your girthy gaming experiences! We love promoting blogs to the front page here at Dtoid, and Bloggers Wanted is a great way to get noticed *wink wink nudge nudge hip thrust*

Happy blogging, everyone!
