Cblogs from Feb. 15 and 22!


Hey guys! It's another week, and another recap with me! Did you miss me? Sorry about that, I had some technical difficulties while house sitting one week, was busy last week. But I'd like to give SrChurros a shout out for covering for me last minute when I realized my predicament that first week. You are a bro!

So...House-sitting! It was pretty okay! I played a bunch of Monster Hunter, ate their food and DIDN'T set ANYTHING on fire. Not even once! Especially not those paper napkins when I was figuring out the gas stove. That definitely NEVER happened. And if it ever did happen I would like to point out they would have been immediately put out after a brief millisecond of thinking "Goddammit I actually did set a fire". So everything is fine, and will always be fine.

Anyway! I've been doing pretty swell. Started a employment program this week. I get paid during it and the goal is to have a permanent job by the end of it. Just finished the last orientation day, and on Monday I'll be working at the local sorting facility for Goodwill. So here's hoping this leads to better things, and helps me "get back out there" or whatever that means!

Anyway, enough about me. There's cblogs to recap!

* - We get a touching tale of friendship and comradery from davidjenkins. Why hunt alone when you can hunt together?

R - Xeo gives us the lowdown on what he thinks the the new Secret of Mana remake. Is it good enough to satisfy his fanboy heart?

T - MountainBlade cleaves right to the point on his thoughts on brand recognition in the gaming industry. Short, sweet and to the point definitely give it a read.

T - Here we got a quick blurb from IloveMGS about the TF2 Jungle Inferno update. If you're still playing, be sure to give a read!

F - Wanna get a quick rundown on Triggers new mech anime, Darling in the Franxx? JuIc3 has the goods! PersonallY also like it alot, but be sure to check out what he thinks!

Alright that's it for me! I hope you guys have a great weekend!

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!
