Not much to talk about this week. I've still been playing both Skies of Arcadia and Risk of Rain. Skies is turning out to be a looooong game (not a bad thing, necessarily). I'm making progress, but very slowly. As for Risk of Rain, I've beaten it several times and unlocked every character, but there's still one achievement that I haven't gotten because I'm terrible with the Sniper. Not that you really have to use the Sniper to get the 5,000 damage achievement, but it seems to be the easiest way. For some reason, I just hate seeing that I only have one achievement left to get in a game... I'm so close!

Also, about the recaps this week: I feel a little bad about the fail section. I really like the idea behind Musicians Wanted, and I'm sure it will lead to some very beautiful things, but it definitely seems to inspire lazy blog writing. For anyone reading this that plans on submitting something for Musicians Wanted: please, PLEASE add a bit of text to your blog to go along with your music. Tell us about yourself! Tell us about the piece you created! What influenced your decision? Why did you choose a particular game/musical style? I guess it's not required to write anything for the topic, but it definitely makes your blog more approachable and interesting, and it will surely get more people to listen to your music.

Anyway, that's all I've got for you today. Keep writing blogs and making sweet music!

R - Some more DeviantArt cosplay from Reinhold Hoffmann. Godot and Kuja are pretty neat!

L - TheKodu created a blog specifically to make puns about InFamous and condoms, and I applaud his efforts!



F - Gonna have to fail this one. Give us a little more to go off of. For example: What made you decide to remix this song?

F - This one is literally just a link... Tell us about yourself and your project!

F - This person at least gave us a bit of info, however... I can't figure out what the song has to do with gaming at all. I suspect they're just promoting their band with a random song?

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!
