Cblog recaps 11/02/08 +Randombullisms

Comic books, do you read them? No seriously, do you read comic books? I've always been a Marvel guy myself. Not that I hate DC, I just like Marvel more. Superhero comic books are fun, but my favorite ones seem to feature less spandex these days. Like Transmetropolitan, Preacher, or The Walking Dead. Yeah, I still read a ton of super hero books, but those three are great examples of non-superhero comics. It seems like most people who hear comic book think superhero.

Still the best comic book to pick up right now is "The Boys" published by Dynamite. Only somewhat related to super heroes. The Boys is a mature audience title about a secret government agency that investigate super heroes. Some really great stuff in there. If you think Sam Jackson as Ultimate Nick Fury was a great comic cameo, wait until you see who the main character of The Boys looks like. I'm guessing you're a fan of Sean of the Dead or Hot Fuzz, so you'll notice the similarity quickly.

If you want something else to read, pick up The Walking Dead. If you like zombie stuff at all, you should be reading The Walking Dead. I've been with it for a long time, great series. If I bought people gifts, I would buy them the first trade paperback of The Walking Dead. It is still ongoing, so be sure to take a look!

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!
