Cblogs of 03/08/10 + Sentricisms

   0


Hey all. Today's been something of a busy day for me, between a few work projects, keeping an eye on the Cblogs (a habit I'm not yet as good at as I'd like to be), rushing home to catch the newly-aired episode of House, and trying to wrap this up before heading back to work to afford my roommate an opportunity to pick up Final Fantasy XIII, so I'm finishing this off a little earlier than I might otherwise prefer to.

I sure hope you won't hold it against me.

Lots of great musings today, and plenty of good reads even if they didn't make it into the Topsauce.

Also, I left a little present in honour of Qalamari's traditional methods:



* - Corduroy Turtle's baconsex musing tickled me JUST ENOUGH to squeak into the Topsauce (though pretty dry visually, throw in an image or something, eh?).

* - covah stared at David Hayter's ass perhaps as much as I stared at Old Snake's (it's magnificent). A parenthetical musing, but still awesome.

* - Stevil offers some solid reasoning as to why sexual conquests in gaming are so ephemeral and meaningless.

* - Metallion's "outside looking in" appreciation of RTS and his anticipation for Starcraft 2. (I, too, appreciate RTS, while being a t0al n00b.)




S - NihonTiger90 reappears to fill us in on his recent (and entirely reasonable) haps.

M - Nude mods, topcatyo affirms, are the true litmus of game greatness.

M - Not until Mass Effect 2 did The Craze find a connection worth visiting a virtual, intimate connection.

M - Sex simply not a necessary element in video-games. According to Analogue, it's little more than spam.

P - Guncannon (alongside other community members) shares a new podcast discussing history's representation in video-games.




Tease - Hamza gives away the remainder of the Blur beta codes in one big slew. (Presumably all gone now.)

Tease - Ramalho does the same with two more. (Most definitely gone now.)

E - Funktastic's suave and stylish entry into the PAX East contest.

E - goodgamer77's entry into the PAX East contest. (He's not wearing any pants!)




S - Silverhertz unboxes for us his awesome contest winnings!

C - LoTD addresses some recent comment concerns.

C - SAMA1984 ponders an overabundance of potential riches.

C - I share GoldenGamerXero's concerns with Dtoid's recent brightness.

I - FireFox516's inagural post acquaints us with his contemporary most and least favourites. Welcome!

I - diztrukted doesn't seem to have much to say and his blog's all wonky. Still, first time, so hello!

I - Welcome Tom Davy to the fold! His blog tastes of delightful donkey puns! (Get it?)




R - "OutRun Online Arcade" review, provided by CoruptAl125.

R - Remember Quest 64 (Holy Magic Century)? Let flameconder tell you a thing or two.

R - turdismiller's thoughts on Mass Effect 2.

T - Aon explores a deeper sense of first-person immersion, and its potential.

T - Goggalor sings the praises of the save-game carry provided in Mass Effect 2.

T - Man, The Silent Protagonist waxes loquacious about the full gamut of FF, Xbox, and Sony fandom.

T - Move over MW2, Etahn 8bit has graduated to Bad Company 2. And he has reasons!

T - Cazza's gardually slipping into the hardcore fighting community and invites us all to come with!

T - Now that you're playing BC2, Kuwanjahbee has some tips for ya'.

T - The only reason I didn't put this in the Topsauce is due to some lavish (though not gratuitous) promotion of another site, but SimonSaysDie provides a KILLER read.

T - Daniel Andres walked away from Heavy Rain feeling exceptionally engaged. Cool beans.

T - NoMore gets the Final Fantasy franchise against the ropes. (Spares FFIX!)

T - Cadtalfryn's argument of historical accuracy vs. player agency resonates strongly (not unlike narrative vs. agency).

T - HoodedMiracle thinks fishing blatantly superior in the war of exclusivity. (Look out fish, I just dropped my bagel!)

T - Practically a meme at this point, ChillyBilly also elaborates on his preference of BC2 over MW2.




A - DJDuffy shares a most excellent recent strip from her comic, featuring Mr. Destructoid!

A - A nifty steampunk version of Peach, outlined and coloured by ekoala2002.

F - wanderingpixel has a thing or two to say about last night's Oscars. (Love the Hughes header.)




C - Fitzybear beat out (by 35 minutes) the Destructoid announcement of Steam on Mac, but didn't say too much.

C - Sorry TheRPGist, not really feeling much by way of content here.




F - Unfortunately, randompowerup's link didn't connect us with a video.

F - Apparently Takeshi is a ... dickhead?


Okiday. That about wraps it up for the evening. Hope you've all had a wonderful Monday and I'll see you around.

Cheers,
Sentry

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!
