Somehow, Monday came again. I shouldn't be surprised at this point, but, well, I am. That last week was way too short. In gaming news, there were some ripoffs, a new Assassin's Creed, another Wii U port not happening, some more Aliens: CM bullshit, yada, yada. Same old, same old. Except for the good stuff. Remember? If not, then you're being too negative. Motherfucker.

In no-one-cares news, I finally got a new 360! I've wanted one for awhile now, as it stopped reading discs a ways back. Bye, bye, 20GB model! Let me tell ya: being able to download all of the games I own and have them in the same space at once is MAGIC. A miracle, really. I mean, if you think about it, it's actually pretty amazing. Go ahead; think about it.

This grand acquisition means that not only can I finish some titles I haven't had a chance to finish, but I finally busted my copy of Dark Souls out of the plastic. I've been waiting a couple months for that. After the initial anger of seeing that the top of the case was broken somehow, I put it in and prepared for the punishment. It didn't disappoint. I died. (shock!) After only a couple hours, though, I already love it. It's brutal and smart and beautiful and omg I can't wait to delve into it further. I finished off day one by kicking the Taurus Demon off a bridge. Felt good, yo.
See you soon, knutaf.

Make your Tuesday positive, and make the most of your leftovers.
Read these CAPS or get some SLAPS.


* - Azudarko is going to be making a series of blogs about a tough subject to properly approach: gay portrayals in gaming. He/she has outlined their goal, and shared some introductory thoughts on the subject. It's very well-written, with a definite feeling of honesty & passion. Having read this first one, I sense this series will be something to keep your eyes on.

* - For our new Blogger's Wanted topic, GlowBear tells us how Dtoid helped her come out of her bear-shell a little more. Not...like...a real shell. A metaphorical one. Stupid.

A - Grimstar loves the fact that games, and other forms of art, can elicit such a range of emotion from people. Read about a couple that had him blowing his nose until it was raw.

A - TheKodu thinks devs/publishers are actually hurting themselves with this pre-order business. He says the Day One purchasers that don't pre-order are sort of punished in this scenario. Do you agree?





T - DePeir is not really feeling where the console market is headed, and has decided to build a PC. (smart guy!) See what he's putting together, and throw your two cents in there.

V - SeymourDuncan17 put together a nice little piece about Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army, with a video of his handiwork. There's some nice shooting, and some totally amazing music. Check it out.

D - Welcome Twisted Jenius to Destructoid! He and his partner made a game called Twisty's Asylum Escapades, and intends to share a dev blog after the fact. It should make for an interesting read.

D - Hey, Twisted Jenius is back already! He shares a little bit about himself, and his motivations for making a game. Probably not what you usually hear.





Wario here done by @GrumpyTurtle
F - E-sports are a kind of cool thing. This blog, however, is not.

Lets Do Launch

In case you've been living under a rock or just waiting on NieR: Automata (thanks for the delay Amazon!), Nintendo just launched its newest console. Whether it's a success or a failure remains to be seen, but many people have bought themselves this shiny new console for their home. It's been a while since we've seen this sheer amount of excitement over a console, and a Nintendo one, no less, considering the amount of goodwill they probably have since the Wii U.

But the QP has been having endless buzz over the Switch, despite concerns over hardware faults in the Joy-Con or cheaply produced docks. Personally, I'd love one despite the lack of software on day one. I mean, I could play Zelda while at work. And not a handheld Zelda either. A proper, huge console-designed Zelda! Asides from that, it's all about the love of having shiny new tech in your hands. So that's what this month's bloggers wanted will be about: console launches, the hype and the release into getting it into your hands.

To participate, title your blog "Let's Do Launch: [your title here]" and use the "Bloggers Wanted" tag, and in a general sense, talk about your favorite launches. We've had the PS4 and Xbone years back but were we genuinely excited or just looking forward to it? Or how about where you were when the GameCube released? Don't worry too much about celebrating the exact launch date, either. I still clearly remember the time I got my Sega Genesis from Costco, complete in a bundle with Ecco the Dolphin and Donald Duck's QuackShot.

Don't worry about being positive or timely. Did you grow up to see the Vectrex launch? Go ahead and enlighten us youngins about how much of a love/hate relationship you may or may not have. Still rocking an Ngage? I'm sure you are. So how did it feel to purchase such a mistake of the universe? Go ahead and let us know, and eventually, we'll get around to promoting it to the front page!
