Did you all have a happy Easter? Eat a bunch of ham and candy? Lovely. Do any of you even know what Easter is really about? Let ole Phil take you on a history lesson. In 1761, Jesus was born to a whore of a woman, who was a virgin. Her name was Milla Jovasanvich. Now Milla Jovasanvich was married to a poor electronics salesman by the name of Joseph Gordan Levitt. They lived in a small van, down by the river.


One day while walking home from work, Joseph was arrested for being too hot and locked up. Milla and a now young Jesus, visited him in prison as much as they could. These visits showed Jesus just how low, some men could go. As the years stretched on, Joseph eventually died of the disease known as getting shanked. Shortly after his death Milla moved to Alaska to become a whaler. Now a 37 year old man, orphaned and alone, living in the 1900's, Jesus knew what his mission in life must be. Jesus was going to show mankind, that if we work together and treat each other properly, we can overcome the Martian invasion looming over us all.

Unfortunately Martian spies had already invaded the Vatican's ranks, due to the help of one John Carter. Carter had a big problem with Jesus. Carter was mad that Jesus had copied his hair style and got credit for it being the popular do of the time. Carter's deception had allowed the spies to get close enough to kidnap and crucify Jesus one night, while he was outside using his shake weight. Little did the Martians know, Jesus had an ace up his sleeve.. His soon to be decaying sleeve that is...


Jesus had heard about what Carter was up too and had headed him off. Earlier that week, Jesus had gone to his top scientist, Doc Brown and received a serum. This serum once injected could raise any dead creature within 72 hours of their demise. BUT! Only after a rabbit had feasted on a small portion of their flesh. Jesus knew the serum had risks, but threw caution to the wind, popped in his Warrant tape and injected himself that night. Little did Jesus know, he was soon to be the first zombie. Now, we all what happened from this point on, but please let me explain the bunny and how Easter has come to be as we know it, before we get to recapping.

What Doc Brown hadn't realized (Since his requests for animal testing had been turned down by the liberals) was that once the rabbit had eaten some of the zombie flesh, it would be cursed to shit jelly beans and deliver candy baskets for eternity.


And that kids, is the story of Easter. Now let's get to recaps!

F- No Jerry. No I won't.

What a nice bunch of blogs this weekend. Good stuff folks. Now some of you might remember I said I had begun development on a game. Probably not, since no one listens to my crazy ass, but I did. I'd like to take this time to announce it. Here. On Destructoid. Right now. What I've been toiling on, later into the night, is a remake of a classic game franchise, I managed to buy the rights to (I know, its CRAZY!). Lemme show you the first screen from my game:



I am remaking Custer's Last Stand. It will be an open world game. Set in the original era and featuring side quests, hunting, fishing and Indian relocation. I've reimagined Custer as a sort of badass, who doesn't follow the rules and will save his Indian love at any cost. Or just tie her to a tree and have at her. PLAYER CHOICE PEOPLE! I'm building this game in Unity to give it a modern feel, but at the same time, me and my team of artists are de-making the graphics to give it that retro feel. Indie losers should lap this shit up! WOOOOOOOO! Look for that bad boy spring of 2017. You can pre-order the alpha now from my personal kickstarter.

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!
