Mario Kart is so much better than I had expected guys. If you haven't had a chance to see it in action yet you should really get on that because it is just absolutely gorgeous. They also fixed a lot of the balancing mechanics from the Wii one. The new stages and items are also great new additions, and the online works flawlessly and is a ton of fun. My one complaint so far? Where is Birdo? No Birdo in MK8 is a huge mistake Nintendo. 2015 year of Birdo!!

Speaking of Nintendo we are less than a week away from E3! I am pretty excited. Microsoft should have big announcements since they've already announced kinectless XB1 and all those Halo details. Sony needs games to keep up that PS4 hype train. And Nintendo, well they have a lot they need to do, Mario Kart seems to have helped a bit but they still need to move a lot more units.

Do you guys have any predictions? I'll make a few just for fun. Microsoft: some sort of Windows handheld gaming device with the Xbox brand (not likely I know but...), New Rare IP or a returning one, big system update for XB1, Titanfall 2, Battlefield 3 is an XB1/PC exclusive (I would hate that myself but just making a prediction)

Sony: New Crash Bandicoot, new Jak and Daxter, Last of Us 2, Infamous game for Vita, PLEASE SAY SOMETHING ABOUT LAST GUARDIAN, system UI overhaul, new gravity rush for PS4 ad Vita

Nintendo: Smash release date and a new character, pokemon ruby and sapphire info, new 3d metroid for wii u, gameboy camera on 3ds eshop, gamecube virtual console games, pokemon red and blue on eshop (THAT SAME DAY?!) Mother 3 localization or maybe a Mother double (triple?!) pack for 3DS, 3DS lite

I could go on but I'm mostly just making wild guesses. What would your ultimate e# announcement be?

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!
