LONG BLOG

C-blogs of 10-12-09 and Timewarpisms

Cast your mind back 48 hours, gentle reader. It seems so long ago, does it not? A simpler time. A time before Brutal Legend & Uncharted 2. A time before internet fanboys got pissy about the reviews for the aforementioned games.

We do apologize for the lack of service over the last couple of days. There was a misunderstanding at Recap headquarters, magnified by an uncharacteristically heavy storm that knocked out my internet service. Shan't happen again.


*-Walkyourpath channeled Sir James of Sterling when writing this writeup of the finest game of his generation. Don't stop believing.
*-Y0j1mb0's semi-response to Megastryke's post about immersion is well worth a look.
*-It's rare that Scary Womanizing Pig Mask writes a blog, but when he does the results are worth the wait. This analysis of Giygas is mindboggling.
*-Canti-Sama's list of gaming pet peeves is something I think we can all relate to. Wil Wheaton said it, and Jesus agrees: Don't be a dick.
*-Sheppy's fast becoming one of my favorite bloggers around here. This piece on why Epic Mickey won't necessarily suck on the Wii is another reason why.
*-Kauza's piece about status effects has already been promoted, so you know it's good.


A-Covah went in-depth on some of the major upcoming releases. Even with everything getting pushed into 2010, this year's still looking goddamn expensive.
S-Nihontiger90 broke tradition by telling you what to get. Just kidding, as usual, he asked What'd You Get?
M-CWal37's Musing doesn't quite fit the mold, but it's a personal story of exploration and life apart from pixels and polygons.
S-Tanukitsune crossed Resident Evil 5 off his backlog list.
P-Failcast episode 49 is now available.
P-Drunkcast recorded on Monday.


C-Don't forget, you can win an assortment of Lucasarts-themed prizes for showing your art chops to the Destructoid Artisans.
W-This is pretty cool. Remember the Soapbox car TheBigFeel built that won the Red Bull Derby? Double Fine noticed and invited him to the Brutal Legend launch party.


C-While calibrating the lag on his new setup, LK404 had an epiphany about how much fun it can be to be silly.
I-Fructose introduced herself with a writeup of the DJ Hero demo stations now available at your local Best Buy. Welcome to Destuctoid.


N-Boatz beat the front page with this list of the Left 4 Dead 2 achievements.
N-More about the L4D2 cheevos.
N-while you once had a choice in the matter, that will end soon-- all World of Warcraft accounts will need to be merged with Battle.net before the month is out.
T-Unangbangkay had some early thoughts on Uncharted 2.
T-Lachlan Watts yearns for simplicity.
T-Jade Empire is making Tgammet violent.
R-Nogarda reviewed the South Park tower defense game.
R-A 20-year-old review of Castlevania courtesy of Solid Boss.
P- The not-quite-an-MMO Love is in early testing, and Snoogans775 is letting us in on all the good stuff.


M-It's Senisan82's turn behind the turntables for this week's dTunes. To start, a lot of great game-inspired metal.


L-How do you advertise Destructoid on a dating site? Here's how.
R-Something about Street Fighter? I guess? Maybe?
?-This post by Wry guy has several topics, including a challenge to the community and a call for entrants into a KOF tournament.
C-I don't like the tone of this blog. It's unnecessarily confrontational.
C-A link to an article on another site is generally a taboo, but at least there's an explanation and some additional words here.
?-Cool story, bro.


Well done, ladies and gents. Doughnut holes for everyone!

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!
