Running waayyyy tired today. But y'all know what happened. It was E3 day one! Lots of good games (lots so many omghnnng) were shown, some were announced, and Sony checked all the boxes.

What are your guys' highlights for today? Disappointments? Predictions for tomorrow?


Short-ass CAPS with cheese.

* - The new Save State. Today, it's Fandango writing about Fear Effect, and hard choices. Great stuff!

* - TroyFullbuster and his buddy Matt have a thorough breakdown of all the things they want in the next Smash Bros. game.

S - More censorship chronicles with OpiumHerz. This one is about Sniper Elite V2 (again) and pre-emptive censoring.

P - A new episode of the Shattered Podcast. Chicken.

A - TheManchild has some thoughts on game reviews, and why many react the way they do to them.

P - A new episode of the GoForRainbow Podcast. Apparently, Corey is not an alcoholic. I have my doubts :P



F - Instead of Dtoid PS3 FNF. they're changing their name to PS FNF. So all Sony Friday Night Fights will fall under the banner. Maybe the Xbox guys should do the same?

V - Mikki Saturn has some video predictions for E3. Hopefully you saw these before the conferences. There's a Nintendo one, at least. Still time!

T - JanicedCollins has some good tips on buying mobile games while minimizing disappointment.

T - shaxam1029 talks greed, risk & reward, and Isaac.

V - Mikki Saturn continues looking back at Mario's 2D platforming fun with Super Mario World.

T - Osga21 has some thoughts about the Microsoft E3 reveals.

V - The sign of a good game: you just keep playing even though you're dying. Watch BobofManframe die like a billion times in Rayman Legends, and say angry things.



L - Of all the things Sony did right today, they really didn't seem to help out the Vita enough. For ninjapresident, it was still enough.

R - nabokovfan87 is here to tell you the good word. Now that you know the word, does a gaming PC finally interest you?



This conference was quite a ride. In Failtoid just because it was blank space.

Okay; gotta go get ready for Smash Bros. and a bunch of other games. So relieved that games are actually the focus this year :)

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!
