'Twas a slow blog day! I guess everyone was too busy playing Bioshock Infinite? I would probably be playing it too, if I'd ever gotten into the Bioshock games. I have been busy beating Tomb Raider and Runner 2 though, and they were both fantastic!

Oh, also... Incredipede! I got it on Steam as a gift from my boyfriend, and it's such a charming little game. It's a platformer where you build your own creatures by adding limbs and muscles to a central eye, and try to get them to move to the goal. The creatures always end up looking rather grotesque, but something about that eye just makes them seem so cute to me, even with bones and muscles popping out all over the place. A lot of the later levels are particularly difficult, and require some puzzle solving skills and creativity, as well as a keen understanding of how the muscles work. Usually I'll begin with a creature that can't quite make it through the level, and end up flailing around helplessly before giving up and trying a different limb/muscle combination. Even failing can be pretty hilarious to watch, though!



So far I haven't been able to come up with a creature that can move around super reliably, like some of the designs shown in the trailers. Just gotta keep trying different things. The most effective design I've come up with so far was a clumsy swastika-looking thing, which could roll around pretty well and kept the eye safe from hazards. I think you can play around with some of my creatures if you go here or here, but I'm not sure if you have to buy the game first or not.

If you do end up buying the game, I recommend starting on the Hard difficulty. The Normal difficulty gives you pre-made creatures, so it's just a matter of getting them to the end of the level. The Hard difficulty lets you create your own creatures (after a few levels which help explain how everything works), which is a lot more fun, in my opinion!

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!
