And a happy Monday to you, too! It's been an interesting week, and it will probably come to a head with Halloween, so get your holes ready. For candy, maybe. I guess you never really know, with Helloween. See what happened there? It shouldn't have happened. Uh-oh. Smurfisms are fighting with mcgeeisms. Somebody hand me my razor blade; I stashed it inside that taffy ball.
Like I mentioned, it has been a week. A week. An actual week. I got some real nice mail, including this one. So many thanks, knutaf! So, of course I had to give this one a TEST DRIVE. I've quickly put several hours into the game and I'm already digging it bigtime. The racing is as good as it always is, but the open world structure really does make it feel different. It reminds me a little of a new Outrun mixed with NFS. You can just drive until the sun goes down. You can also challenge racers on the fly, so even if you feel like just driving about, you still have a way to race someone. There are plenty of little challenges to do, and even an interesting collectible feature (barns with old, worn, but awesome, cars,) if you're not up for racing. There are even "speed traps" that clock your speed as you pass, and will show you your friends' speeds right then & there. Reminds me of a thing I read about recently. The game seems very good so far. Initial impressions ftw.
In other "news," I was on a podcast this weekend. Jesus. How do you people do it? I have even more appreciation for all the podcasters on Dtoid, and everywhere, really. I already think speaking is overrated, but now I have to do it within a time frame? About a specific topic? I'm being recorded? And someone will hear this? And...and...thank you, Captain Morgan. You are my hero. Trying not to be nervous and also some fraction of what is considered eloquent as well as trying to minimize dead air, with all kinds of thoughts going through my head while also reading things (some of which I wrote, but for some reason am ignoring...) I feel like fucking Lucille Ball trying to work that assembly line. Thanks Strider, for actually sticking with it. Good man.
Oh, look; it's uploaded. ...Yay?
Now that I'm done vomiting through my keyboard, let's get to the good stuff. YOUR people's stuff.
So for this month's prompt, we should look to our best examples of scum and villainy. Talk about your favorite antagonists, villains, bad guys, and malcontents and why you like them so much. Certainly not because you want to be like them since the powers of law and order are probably keeping a close and watchful eye on us. But you know, hypothetically, if I were to recommend my own personal favorite villain, it might be Manfred Von Karma from Ace Attorney. The guy is irredeemably terrible, believing in not just results no matter the cost, but also a total disdain for nearly everyone around him since they most likely aren't as perfect as him.
For January's bloggers wanted prompt, just create a new community blog, start the title with "New Year's evil: [your blog title here]" and tell us about your favorite villains.
From the terrible like Flowey, to forces of nature like Gigyas. Go ham! We won't judge you since we're talking in hypotheticals. As long as we're talking about bad guys since Yoshikage Kira wasn't bad. Kira just wanted to live a peaceful life. He just happened to be a serial killer, you know?
