LONG BLOG

C-blogs of 12-29-08 and Qalamarisms

   0



Ah, the final Monday of the year is behind us. Before I get started I'd like to publicly thank our wonderful team of reserve recappers who covered for me the last two weeks while work was kicking me right between the cheeks. SilverDragon in particular has been doing yeoman's work in making sure we didn't miss an update.

We're closing in on the end of the year, and that's often a catalyst for people to look back, take stock, and reminisce about the time gone by. It's also a time to look forward to the year to come, and people have been using their C-blog accounts to do both.

Did 2008 feel especially long to you? You're not just imagining things. In addition to the leap year day at the end of February, 2008 will have one additional Leap Second added before the astral odometer resets for the year. I recommend using that last extra second to play a WarioWare Microgame... or a reasonable facsimile, like Four-Second Frenzy.







*-NihonTiger90 wants the best community moment and story of the year. Help him out, won't you?
*-Laxluster's series on raising a gamer continues with a review of Christmas toys and why you should always keep the remote handy while playing Fallout 3.
*-VGMan wrote a friggin' BOOK about Rhythm Tengoku. He really knows what he's talking about though, so set aside some time and have a look.
*-Atlas and CTZ whip `em out and grab a ruler. I'm not sure who won, but the comments are great.


S-RonBurgandy2010's Dtunes episode 56 records tonight. Or would, if it were a podcast.
S-The final "What'd you get?" of the year. NihonTiger90 got a new sig banner. Very nice.
A-GamingGoddess is playing through one of the early Tomb Raider games and writing about it. I've never played a TR game in my life, but this is quite well written.
A-This'd be better with some pictures to break up the wall of text, but it's clear some thought went into Saint Demon's list of the 10 worst videogame movies.


W-Not sure if this was from a contest, but Shipero got something pretty spiffy from Maxvest.
W-Togail won that sweet, sweet Persona 4 prize pack. I think I speak for everyone here when I say congratulations, you son-of-a-bitch.


I-Cotton McKnight's introductory post. Welcome to Destructoid. Please get an avatar.
I-ShovetheJayOhBee introduces him or herself by sharing some of their favorite Flash games. Welcome, and thank you for ensuring this blog went up late. =p
C-NihonTiger wants some advice on what to get at the Steam Sale.
C-DeadMovieStar has been a D-toid member for 2 years now. Not too shabby.


N-Call of Duty World at War was on sale earlier today. N-gage version ftw.
T-Some thoughts and mockups of the potential future of handhelds. Nintendo isn't gonna drop the touch screen. Haven't you heard it prints money?
T-Covah is surprised that there are idiots on XBL. Well, maybe not. The header image is worth the price of admission.
T-How is the remake of Chrono Trigger selling?
T-Aurion (formerly Funky Goodness) has a top ten of 2008 list you may want to see.
R-AgentMoo reviews Crazy Penguin Catapult. Looks like fun.
D-RandomBullsEye is still doing some clean-up work on BonerQuest. He's hired the best to help.
D-For example, Tascar did a great job on the music.
T-An eclectic top ten list by NotAZombie.
N-News about a possible Tatsunoko vs. Capcom sequel is already being batted around. The original must be good. Shame it'll never come stateside.
R-Review of Virtua Racing by Rider Chop.


A-Faith made a pink, pixelated Master Chief out of Perler beads. Have a look!
A-Miss Rio is having a sale at her Etsy store.
F-ShinjiRightHand reviews an Xbox Live movie called Raptor Island. Clever girl. Boy. Whatever.
F-The Chun Li movie trailer was released today.
S-BlindSideDork got something pretty sweet for Christmas. And tells where to buy a dismemberable zombie doll.
S-DrachulaX's Santa must have gotten a shipment from The Penguin's armorer. A gauntlet is cast down before BlindsideDork.


R-Free Disney ticket on your birthday. That's nice, but NVGR. The last line kinda hurt, too.
V-Mel Brooks does the Hitler Rap. Was this before or after The Producers?
C-Video from an XNA game. Not even a Morgan Freeman soundalike can save this one.
?-Starts out being about fear, morphs into being about boobs, then somehow wraps around to being about fear again. Very entertaining read.
C-Gotta agree with Atlas. 2007 is so 2007.


S-Blindside posted last weeks VGCats about Left4Dead. Christmas was last week, dude.
F-[/Bad blog] indeed.
F-Twitter is thataway.

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!
