So, I stayed up until 5AM last night playing Heavy Rain until I finished it. I finished with 2 of four heroes standing (Madison is surprisingly flammable). I'm not sure what I think about it, to be perfectly honest. I give the game a lot of credit for trying something new, and Sony a load of credit for taking a chance on it financially (though reports say it's performed quite well). I think the thing I look forward to most having finished the game is going back through the spoiler-filled media I intentionally skipped when it was freshly released, to see what others thought about it. (By the way... Reverend Anthony, that was kinda a dick move revealing the killer's identity in your alt-text in that last article. Just my opinion, of course.) I let one of my friends borrow the PS3 over the weekend so he could play it too; I'm quite interested to discuss it with him, see how our stories diverged, what we did differently. In that area at least, the game is a rousing success.

Just as an aside, my brother's name is Shaun. Spelled the same exact way. I think he'd hate this game.

For those wondering where Saturday and Sunday's recaps went, they'll be along shortly if they're not up already. Don't forget to find this week's Simpsons quote. Let's get to it.


*-I'd not have thought the mixture of classic movies and classic game characters would have the legs it has had, but I'm glad that GrumpyTurtle continues to prove me wrong.
*-AwesomeExMachina has a friend that could use some help, and is turning to the internet. Don't let her down.
*-Have you ever thought about just how iconic the world warriors of Street Fighter really are? The Faux Bot has, and the world is a better place for it.
*-Johannhat has been tinkering with the idea of an alcohol-fueled video game obstacle course he calls... The Videolympics. Make sure you check out the prizes.


A-Endserenading wrote about his love/hate relationship with the Mega Man series, and how much he's enjoying 10.
M-This Musing by Mike P takes a look at Tim Schafer's latest.
S-Sharpless launched a new series (well, new to Dtoid) called Not-so-early Adopter. I'm looking forward to the next installments.


No contests today. Last week's Simpsons quote was from the 9th season episode The Cartridge Family and was hidden in the recap for Chaotical's review of FIFA. You can see the clip below.



E-Procyon is hosting the next Baltimore NARP. Sounds like a good time coming up!
D-Artist in residence Mikey turned another year older recently, and the members of DtoidUK partied the shit out of the weekend. You can see all the sexytimes in this blog from Max likes turtles.
R-Farewell, Xbox Live 1.0. We hardly knew ye.


N-File this one under Rumortoid, but Mooks thinks the next batch of Mass Effect 2 DLC might have something to do with Liara.

F-WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN
F-Too short, even for a shortblog.
F-Um, yeah. Thanks for the heads up, but three links and a picture aren't a blog, just as three clowns don't make a circus.

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!
