Cblog recaps from March 1, 8 and 15. Life, lateness and libraries.


Hey guys, and welcome once again to the Thursday recap! In case you were wondering where I've been with these, I just started working through Alberta Job Corps, so I've been pretty tired from that after not working for like, 2 years. And THEN I got sick, so that was fun too. But I'm happy to say that I think things are going great so far! It feels nice to be working again, and the people at job corps are super supportive. I finished doing First Aid Training today!

I've also re-discovered that libraries are awesome! I had someone recently enlighten me on how libraries have updated since I last went, so I immediately went to check it out. Ended up borrowing a bunch of movies, games and books. So far I've figured out game wise, that I do not like Elite Dangerous or Rodea the Sky Soldier, and that I like Elex way more than I thought I would. The fact it gives you a jetpack right away is a big plus.

Other than that it's been more of the same. Playing dnd and Magic the Gathering with buddies every week. Getting some Monster Hunter and Warframe in when I can. Looking for sweet deals at the grocery store. That kinda stuff. So now that that's outta the way, let's move onto those recaps I'm behind on!

* - Bass has made us more custom dtoid Magic The Gathering cards! They're awesome! Check em' out!

* - Marcel Hoang aka Strider let's us know his current fav weapons in MHW. He does have a Charge Blade in there, so I guess his opinion is valid. Go check them out and tell him yours!

T - Batman is an inspiration to many, and here Zordan tells us how Batman has colored his views in gaming. Hopefully it didn't involve a tragic origin story.R - taterchimp gives us his thoughts what he likes and dislikes about FF12. I'll give a fast rundown of my thoughts too; Bad=Vaan and Good=Fran
S - We got an interview with Filipino Pro-Wrestler Robin Sane done by JBlaze! I'm not a wrestling guy, but if you are give it a read!

R - Oh man! Kerrik52 has a totally legit real I swear review of Farcry 5 up! What? It's not out yet? I dunno Kerrik is a pretty stand up bro, he would't just make a fake review for fun. Right?

T - 1 year after the Switch's release, Shoggoth2588 give us his thoughts on it and the Wii-U. I still can't afford a Switch myself, but someday...

R - Flegma gives us a blast from the past with an old school review of Yie Ar Kung-Fu, which as it turns out is 3 years older than me! That's crazy!

T - What are you playing right now? JBlaze want to know, and also let us know what he's playing! For me in short; Warframe, MHW, and Elex.

T - IDrawOnTape gives us his tale of woe with his experience with Gamefly. Hopefully it gets better buddy!

V - SquareElite gives us the scoop about SqueEnix's live Final Fantasy XV Alternative Time Report. The video on it is in the cblog, so take a gander!

R - Lord Spencer fill us in on his upcoming plan of Sega Saturn reviews. I'm looking forward to it!

L - We're going on a nostalgia trip with LaTerry, who tells us about one of his childhood book classics "he Transall Saga"! I was library kid myself, but mostly Goosebumps.

L - It's time for dephoenix's Book of the Month! This time we got a NSFW selection called "My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness". Seems self explanatory. Check out his thoughts on it, but not in public!

F - We got a review of the new Tomb Raider movie from Rudorlf. I wonder if they have that part where Lara bites a guys ear off?

? - The Baked Potato let's us know how all the cool kids on his block are getting into Rukus. I think it's a band? The description is kinda lacking and I'm too lazy to google it. Ask him in the comments I guess!

Alright, that catches me up on my recaps. Now I'm going to catch up on some gaming. Or read some Dresden Files. Or make dinner. Or even just chill. Have a great weekend guys, and have a great dtoid bday!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Just for Kicks

There are so many aspects of a story that tend to get overlooked, but one of the hugest is the trusty sidekick. These characters are mostly subjected to simply being the butt of a joke or only exist to service the narrative, but they help immerse players in the world, and they’re too often forgotten in favor of the star of the show.

For instance, look at Clank from the Ratchet & Clank series. This adorable robot spends the majority of the game strapped to Ratchet’s back and mainly works to further gameplay, but the experience would not be the same without him. Even if it’s only for a brief moment, he even gets his own playable segments in the newest reboot of the franchise. This little guy means a lot to me, and it’s tough not to love him.

Then, of course, there are annoying fucks like Navi in Ocarina of Time. How many times can you scream, “Hey, listen!” before I start daydreaming about strangling you until you’re but a distant memory? In Navi’s case, I’m going to throw out an arbitrary number and say twenty-three. I get why Navi exists, to help lead players in the right direction and offer vague tips, but holy fuck do I wish someone had the common sense to delete that bastard fairy from existence.

For this month’s Bloggers Wanted, I want to hear about your most memorable sidekicks and companions. It doesn’t matter why you remember them, whether love or hate, but I know there are plenty out there that folks are passionate about. Hell, you could even talk about the cute, furry little creatures that all of the best developers put in their creations, like the floating death machines in Castle Crashers. I don’t care if their story is written into the script or it’s part of your own headcanon that only exists inside your sick, twisted, totally fucked up brain. Lay it on me, y'all.

To participate, head over to the community blogs and format your title as “Just For Kicks: [insert title here].” If it’s good enough, there’s a chance that you might even see your words grace the Front Page of Destructoid!
