Cblog recaps 11/29/08 +Randombullisms

   0

I'm going to try and recap todays blogs, based off of the opening lines. Lets hope I'm accurate as possible! If I made a major mistake, can someone else look over my shoulder and fix it for me? Thanks a lot. Hey can you get that? Thanks a lot.

Oh hey, Bonerquest had a test version get passed around. I heard it wasn't working now to download it, so I guess those that have it are playing it and seemingly enjoying it. Some places not as much as the others, but I'm getting some good feedback. Also cocks. No really. It seems some areas are full of random battles, the dialog is funny, and I guess the game is playable. Rather difficult to install, but once you get past that, you're ready to rock with some old school style role playing action. One fella described it to me in an message as being like zelda and pokemon mixed with my type of humorous nature. You know, dick and fart jokes. I've been told I do that well. Course, I've also been told that Destructoid recaps are important and that everyone reads them. Does anyone ever read these posts I write here? I'm sure one guy does. You're awesome sir. Or lady even. Thanks for reading my posts. I try to read peoples posts, but often times now I'm so busy with stuff. I can just sort of skim over things.

Just in case you missed it in our chat, I've bought some new games on the xbox three hundred and sixty. I'm now part of the Gears 2, Fable 2, and Saints Row 2 club. If any of you wish to play some of those, my gametrag is the same as my name. (randombullseye just in case you don't know who I am. Which saying that makes me think of the Juggernaut cartoon.)


I guess I didn't pick anything today. Some decent posts today, I might read through some of the Chrono Trigger DS posts. Maybe.


A- This post is about an HDTV and I think something about their xbox as well. Don't know what catagory or section to put it in, so article under word it is.


C- SSF2HD Tournament for you playstation three fellas.


?- Retroforce GO music fans check out this post. Someone has something in mind that involves retroforce and music.


N- Playstation 3 has new dual shock charger and wireless keypad coming out. Says it has a video in the blog title.
R- Mirrors Edge review
R- Review of Chrono Trigger DS
T- Something about 2008s video games, I think.
T- Chrono Trigger DS something about it.
T- Another Chrono Trigger post, from someone that hasn't played it before.
V- TF2 Mass AI
V- Fallout 3 video. Sounds like it might be about dancing or something. Perhaps it is humorous?
?- I want to say this is about Street Fighter 2 and that new version of it, but maybe not. Sure seems like it from the little description in the opening lines. I like how destructoid has that.


A- A community member is doing a comic.
F- ShiMoNi continues with Leonord Part Six. Swat Kats, Megas XLR, and Pokemon also mentioned.
?- Something arrived from Canada.
?- Someone went to Japan on a field trip or something. I assume this is the first of many posts about that trip.


V- Destructoid's editor in chief is old.
V- A post about a video taking someone back to their childhood. I put it in other, assuming it was an other related video post.
?- Something about Linux. I don't know exactly what they're talking about.
?- Made a robot aparantly.
?- Another website needs help or something.


I guess I didn't fail anything either today. Some stuff seemed less interesting than others, but just for politeness sake and that nothing seemed glariingly fail, I guess there wasn't any.

-(randombullseye)

Hopefully I can devote some more of my free time towards Bonerquest. If you're curious where Random SElect was yesterday, I won't be doing it for a few weeks. I want to get Bonerquest finished and then concentrate on doing the blog thing. Unless of course someone hires me to do blogs proffesionally, then by all means you'll see somemore random select such as Missile Command or something else like that. I want to do more Golden Age stuff. No one seems to talk about the Atari or Colecovision, and gosh darned it, I'm just a bad enough dude to talk about that stuf. Have fun guys and keep it clean.

Also left in spelling errors today. Hopefully none of my code work here messes up. Oh well!

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!
