Well tarnation, look at that there. If that don't beat all. We had a bumper crop of quality bloggin's today, yessiree. It may have been the holiday, or the weather, or some other permutation I can't think of at the moment, but you outdid yourselves today, ladies and gents. With some extra free time on your hands today, it seems as though many of you decided to work on your blogs. It was a busy day, so let's get to it. And if you spent some of your Memorial day playing a war game, first let the irony sink in, then make sure to thank a veteran.




*- Norm9 took a moment to remember the reason we had a holiday here in the U.S. today. To those who have served, we thank you.
*-I'm PROBABLY wrong, but I think this blog is about Stevil killing Funktastic and stealing his Playboys.
*-Guncannon proves that some music just works in any situation.
*-Nilcam offers some tips to improve yourself at the fightin' games. As he puts it, "It's part Sun Tzu, part psychological warfare."
*-Moobs-- Beyamor has'em. (Apparently.)
*-I don't agree with EternalDeathSlayer's rant here; personally, I avoid Activision products because I don't like their apparent contempt for gamers. And though I know full well that my decision not to purchase their wares is as ineffective as farting at Air Man, I won't condone their disrespect by giving them any of my money. However, he has every right to say what he did, and it touched off quite the debate in the comment section.
*-And a bit later, that debate continued with this blog, a fairly heady piece by Lazaro Cruz.
*- the hits keep on coming, and Golden Avenger drops some SCIENCE while praising one of history's greatest badasses, Nikola Tesla.


A-Sometimes, you just need to vent. I know you think it's bad now, Kinjiro, but it was arguably worse when GameStoppers knew nothing about their stock.
A-An open letter to PS3 developers asking that they not copy-protect their save files. Makes sense to me, that data's a lot less sensitive/valuable/worth stealing than the game code itself.
A-Alakaiser shares the story of how he fell out of, and back into love with fighting games. (It rhymes with "blooper meat spider war.")
A-Javidwashere details his affair with Atlus, from schoolboy crush to nightly penetration. (Was that too far? That may have been too far.)
M-For the final Musing this month, Enkido explored the different gaming paths his family has taken.
P-Podsumaki recorded earlier this evening.



I love this guy's channel.


F-Nilcam posted the weekly update for the PS3 fight club.
S-Doomsday Forte spent part of his vacation at a hospital. Sorry sir, hope your mom has a speedy recovery.


T-With some time to kill, HELI05 whomped up a list of unlikely sequels he'd love to see.
T-And Kytherno took time to educate us on one of the listed entries, Rogue Galaxy.
T-And another, the Metroid Prime series. Hm. Maybe HELI05 and Kytherno have a Tyler Durden/Jack thing goin' on.
R-Ruicraveirinha dissected Mass Effect 2 and found some things lacking in comparison to its predecessor.
R- Snowknight reviewed Super Mario Galaxy 2.
R-So'd Idrawrobots, who just finished the game with 120 stars.
D-RobotBebop's still working on a game, and has this progress report. Starting over must be a pain, but the results speak for themselves.
$-It may be worth your while to check Target's clearance section from time to time. Just sayin'.


A-A lovely tribute to some good people. Nice work, Jack Maverick.


V-A second trailer for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World has been released thanks to Facebook. Bathe in its radiance.
V-You know what? It does. It really does.
R-A plea from RetroSoldier to... honestly, I'm not even sure.
R-16bitJeff has been working on a Let's Play article for one of the first games I ever owned, Mega Man 4. Looking forward to it.
R-McFearsome is fearful of what the 'morrow may bring. Man up dude, it's only Alpha Protocol.
C-I don't give a fat crap about Modern Warfare 2, and I doubt very much I'm unique and alone in that sentiment. Never assume everyone in your audience thinks exactly the same way you do.


F- Yeah, no. But the picture Occam's posted in the comments? I want that on my wall.

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!
