Cblog recaps 10/18/08 + Randombullisms

First: A big thanks to Yojmbo for making this awesome header. Nice work.

Second: A big thanks to Podtoid for letting me make Bonerquest. What was once a joke, now is a crummy world of plot holes and spelling errors. No really. I've outlined the majority of the game and actually have some things ready. My big concerns right now are the design of the monsters keeping with 8-bit look and of course living up the hype of Bonerquest itself. If anyone would like to test play it in a few days, that would be really awesome. Soon as I'm done recapping its back to work on Bonerquest.

A snippet of dialog from a towns person.

"You look like a man on a quest! Oh you need help with a boner. I can't help you with boners."

Did I miss the failure today? I always ask myself "Did I miss a post?" So if I missed a post, that's your failure for today. I worry if I erase things by accident as well or if I'm putting things in the wrong sections. Almost failed a few things, but I guess I was feeling nice today. I won't be so kind tomorrow night.



Back to Bonerquest talk! Hooray!

What music should be put in Bonerquest?

What do you like/dislike about role playing games? I'd like to know so I can have a better idea of what people want and don't want in Bonerquest.

What do you expect from Bonerquest?

Why does every question end in Bonerquest?

Will you accept the Bonerquest?

No seriously, that's the tag line. "Will you accept the Bonerquest?"

That's it for Saturday's recaps!

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!
