Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the holidays! I've been really sick all week, but I'm finally starting to feel better today, so that's good news!

I've been slowly making my way through all the games I got over the past week or so. This week I played some Shenmue. I walked all over town asking everyone I met about Chinese people and sailors. Surely I made many people uncomfortable. When not trying to find out where all the husky sailors spend their time, I've been buying toy capsules, picking things up very delicately, petting a kitten (who seems to always be sleeping), and standing around the Tomato convenience store listening to the jingle. It's a neat game, if a little underwhelming by today's standards, but I'm glad I finally get to experience it!



I also played a bit of Papers, Please, which is an interesting game. I was really enjoying it until I tried to go to sleep that night, and in my sickly state, I started having fever dreams where I thought my in-game decisions were actually affecting real people. I would get all worried thinking I wouldn't be able to pay for medicine or food to help my sick son, and I'd have to start detaining more innocent people, and then wake up confused and realize I don't even have a son. Then I'd try to go back to sleep and remember that, during the day's work, I'd separated a woman from her husband and probably doomed her, and then wake up and realize it was just a freaking game! 

It is a very engaging game, which toys with your emotions and makes you feel like a huge jerk, and you don't really have much of a choice because you have your family to think about. I probably shouldn't play it while I'm sick though, because apparently it really messes with my head!

Lets Do Launch

In case you've been living under a rock or just waiting on NieR: Automata (thanks for the delay Amazon!), Nintendo just launched its newest console. Whether it's a success or a failure remains to be seen, but many people have bought themselves this shiny new console for their home. It's been a while since we've seen this sheer amount of excitement over a console, and a Nintendo one, no less, considering the amount of goodwill they probably have since the Wii U.

But the QP has been having endless buzz over the Switch, despite concerns over hardware faults in the Joy-Con or cheaply produced docks. Personally, I'd love one despite the lack of software on day one. I mean, I could play Zelda while at work. And not a handheld Zelda either. A proper, huge console-designed Zelda! Asides from that, it's all about the love of having shiny new tech in your hands. So that's what this month's bloggers wanted will be about: console launches, the hype and the release into getting it into your hands.

To participate, title your blog "Let's Do Launch: [your title here]" and use the "Bloggers Wanted" tag, and in a general sense, talk about your favorite launches. We've had the PS4 and Xbone years back but were we genuinely excited or just looking forward to it? Or how about where you were when the GameCube released? Don't worry too much about celebrating the exact launch date, either. I still clearly remember the time I got my Sega Genesis from Costco, complete in a bundle with Ecco the Dolphin and Donald Duck's QuackShot.

Don't worry about being positive or timely. Did you grow up to see the Vectrex launch? Go ahead and enlighten us youngins about how much of a love/hate relationship you may or may not have. Still rocking an Ngage? I'm sure you are. So how did it feel to purchase such a mistake of the universe? Go ahead and let us know, and eventually, we'll get around to promoting it to the front page!
