LONG BLOG

CBlog o' 9/2/13 + MacMangasms

My apologies for being MIA last week, I had to make a business trip to Philly and boy do I not like cheesesteaks with cheese wiz on them. 



SO

Couple things to chat with you lovely people about. Firstly, I saw The World's end and loved, loved, loved it. It could very well be the finest installment of the Cornetto trilogy, which I was unaware until this movie was a thing. Apparently in each movie someone is eating a Cornetto or at the very least one is referenced. Each colour of the wrapper relates to the theme of the movie. Really cool stuff. It's inspired me to go back and look out for them in the other movies when I can finally find the DVDs.



And HUGE guys. I've been thinking a lot about it and I really like the idea of it. It reminds me a lot of how PSN+ is at the moment. It gives you things instead of putting things already in place behind a paywall.  I'll probably extrapolate more on the subject when I join in a community blog dedicated to it.

I also caved and pre-ordered GTAV. I had great hesitation toward it because I actually didn't like GTAIV. It took much of the silliness that I enjoyed about the series and did away with it. It was too silly and lacked the spirit of GTAIII that I loved so much. To me, it wasn't the spiritual successor that it was touted to be. I am excited for the fifth installment though. It looks as though they will be bringing some of the old style back.



What are your thoughts on.. the hodgepodge of shit I talked about?

Let's recap

* - Some nice words about Dtoid inspired by the inception of HUGE.

* - Callusingy asks why Ryse deserves the hate it does in the finely written piece.

A - Grey-ee needs to flush this idea out a little more. I'd love to see him elaborate.

A - Malfy-ee's thoughts on launch day experimentation.

T - Suuda-ee coming at you with some Racing the Sun impressions. Digging this art style.

R - Some quick reviews for you a la Boomy

T - Dusty wasn't as taken with Saints Row as he thought he'd be. A fine blog on expectations.

R - Kingy reviews the Walking Dead Episode 1. Not sure that this game is for me but I love the idea of it.





L - P0RNZ

L - Some commentary vids if you're in the mood for a laugh.

F - Do you even lift?

S - As I say at least once a week, write a blog about your video. Otherwise it's just spam I'm too hungover to make a half-decent joke about.

Yesterday's Pitt tailgate will be the death of me...

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!
