Good Monday evening to you all. I hope you'll indulge me a small question up at the top. How can I better serve you in my capacity as a recapper? Last week's outing went practically unnoticed, which is discouraging to say the least. It makes me think I'm not doing something right, so I'd like to ask you what I can change to make things better. Just hit up the comments at the end of the post; be honest and please keep it constructive, that's all I ask.



Lots of good stuff at the top tonight, a couple of monthly musings by Banjo-Kazooie fans, and some worldwide NARP retrospectives. Let's get to it.


*-AlphaDeus has a talent for playing the piano, but a limited time to share it with the world. This is some truly lovely playing right here.
*- Handy's Fanart Flops this time brings you such horrors as Lady Gaga Cloud and Tiny-Face Tidus. That's right, it's the Final Fantasy version.
*-Need proof that the Dtoid community is awesome? Look no further than their willingness to help out a stranger in his time of need.
*-Corduroy Turtle's Musing for the month should be familiar to anyone who's ever tried to explain something to a child.


A-Nice to see BahamutZero return to the site with this rant slanging off in-box DLC.
M-Burningsoup Musing explains his bias in favor of platform games.
M- XL1ska tells a harrowing story of how his bias for Rare has dwindled to nearly nothing in recent months.


W-Destructoid: Where Even the Losers are Winners!


E-Zen Albatross and friends will be rockin' 8bit goodness at PAX prime in less than two weeks. If you've seen any of Topher's Journalism Show videos, you've heard Zen's music and know it to be good. Let's show some serious support at PAX!
D-Video and pictures from last weekend's EuroNARP are now condensed into this handy little blog.
D-Not to be outdone, Dtoid San Francisco countered with video and photos of their NARP. Don't worry, I managed to stay off-camera the whole night. Your eyeballs will be safe.
I-A reintroduction by one of Destructoid's most senior members. Power-Glove is a man of wealth and taste.


N-Louis Garcia12 wanted to let everyone know that the free-to-play MMO Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures is now in open beta.
T- Some rantin' and ravin' about Sega by The Auracle.
T-Kytherno recommends a couple of retro Playstation games, but Goggleknocker makes an excellent point.
T-Lil DangerouZ posted a few things he thinks are necessary to sell a game.


A-Some beautiful ink drawings based on Diablo 2, Shadow Hearts, and Rule of Rose by Yorda.
M-Kingcrude put together a Modern Warfare 2 music video using the game's sound assets.
S-Hey guys, we're all gonna get semi-formal dresses from the 80's! SWEET!


L-Geoff shared a video showing some silly Mirror's Edge cosplay in the vein of Mega64.
V-DimmuJed likes Pokemon Red's music. It's still amazing how much game got packed into that little plastic cartridge.
C-Short blogs consisting of one or two lines tend to go ignored. You'd have better luck in the forums.


F-Occam's (AKA The Toothbrush Man) used his GIS superpowers to keep this one from being a total waste of space.
F- A cross posted review of Kane and Lynch 2. Hard to say what's the bigger fail.

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!
