I've finally been enjoying all the splendors of the new generation. I'm loving the PS4. While so many think that the launch lineup is nothing special, I find it just about perfect. Here's why.



Resogun. I'm obsessed. I've already clocked more hours into this games then my other games combined. It's old school and addicting to look to look at. The leaderboards, the trophies, the upped difficulty all has me coming back for more. I won't bore you with this any longer because it will all just be gushing over the gorgeous game.



Killzone: The singleplayer is good enough for a launch game. The visuals are stunning, which is exactly why I bought it, much like I did Killzone 2. Thought the glory of this game is how refreshing the multiplayer is. The fact that you get every gun from the start amazes me. I can't remember the last time I played a shooter online and didn't get owned simply because everyone has better equipment than me. Plus, it's loads of fun.



NKA2K14: This game looks amazing and much like the ones before it, is fun as hell to play on the couch with some friends and a few beers. This isn't a game I'll play much at all by myself, but with the graphics and gameplay it makes for a perfect local multiplayer session.

I never really expect much from a launch, but these titles have exceeded my expectations. Sure, there's gonna be a drought for a bit, but these will tide me over just fine.



* - This might be the best Comictoid to date.

* - A look back in time at the Nintendo Power Guide to Final Fantasy. A great read, Savestatey

* - Benny tells us of 5 Animal Simulators that Must be Made. This Must Be Read.



A - Some interesting numbers for those wondering how the console launch games did.

A - Huh, the Assasins Creed app looks pretty interesting. A good read for anyone curious about it.

A - Plumby wants to know why there's no GBA games on virtual console. Nintendo, y u do dis???

S - Stridey's history of Pokemon's Metagame continues. Interesting to think that Blacl/White may be broken.







I - A fine premier blog about the SteamBox. Everyone greet the man... just do it.



$ - Gazy. Such strength. Such resistance of the Steam sales. Wow.



A - Sweet Uncharted shirt, bruh





S - That two sentence blog.



Lots of quality sauce today.

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!
