Hello everyone! 

I had a pretty cool thing happen over the weekend. I've been playing a lot of KRUNCH again recently, since it just released on Steam not too long ago, and had its first major update a few days ago. I've gotten quite good at the game, and in fact, on Thursday I actually took first place in the global leaderboards for overall score! The first place spot used to belong to Dirk Rugged, one of the game's developers. 



Dirk Rugged and Vieko (the other dev), actually follow me on Twitter, I assume because I talked about the game quite frequently back when it was first released in 2012. Well, Dirk found out I beat his high score, so he set up a stream over the weekend in an attempt to take back the title. It was incredibly close, and I thought he had me beat towards the end, but I still managed to rack up a few less deaths than him, so the title remains mine (for now!). 



It's been really neat being able to converse so often with the developers of one of my favorite indie games. It's sort of given me a feeling of connection with the game itself; it might not be my game, but I still feel sort of protective about it, which might sound weird. I really hope to see it become successful, although right now it's looking like there aren't many people playing it. The forums for the game have been rather quiet, and I know there are tons of gamers out there who could beat my high score in a flash if they gave the game a chance. I'm looking forward to the day where I can try to hone my skills even more and take back the first place spot from a future pro (or from Dirk again, because I'm sure he can beat me), because I know that I can get a much better score than I currently have if I really tried!
 
Anyway, I've said it before but I'll say it again: go buy KRUNCH! It's a really good game!



* - RedHeadPeak recounts a few games where he felt guilty about the actions he was required to do in order to beat the game. He's killed tons of innocent characters, because the games made him. Way to go, ya jerk!

* - SpielerDad gives us a history lesson on Barcode, an arcade that used to be in Times Square, and also mentions a few arcades that are still around NYC today.



A - CaimDark finds the term "tone deaf" to be annoying, as it relates to conversations about social issues. I've actually never even heard the term used that way before!

A - sonic 429 feels out of touch with the gaming scene. But as many commenters have said, it's not so much that he's out of touch, he just has different tastes than the "mainstream."

A - Oculin keeps flip-flopping with the rules of completion for his Backloggery.

P - Listen to thoughts about games, wrestling and more on episode 12 of the Error Machine Podcast!







F - Friday Night Fights on Nintendo + Bazookas!



R - Terry 309 reviews Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean, an underrated gem of the Gamecube.

N - It seems Tales of Hearts R is being localized for the Vita sometime this winter!







? - I, umm... I don't know what to say about this.

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!
