Sorry for the late caps everyone. Yesterday I was pretty far behind schedule studying for an exam next Monday, so I made the terrible decision to prioritize school over video games. I still don't have all the time in the world even now, but at least enough to get these caps out there into the world at large. The good news is that from Monday onwards I will be swimming in free time. I might even play some video games, imagine that!

Speaking of video games, I have the absolute worst luck when it comes to WiiU games. Back when Pikmin 3 came out, it took my local electronics/games retailer over two weeks to finally ship my order. Then when I bought The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, it did arrive on time but my TV broke immediately afterwards.
And now Mario Kart 8 is out, but I just got an e-mail from the game store that they haven't been supplied enough copies so I'm going to have to wait until Monday at the earliest. Bummer, but at least this means I can keep focusing on that exam first.

Still, I'm getting super excited for some kart racing action, and that free copy of The Wonderful 101 is going to be awesome too!
(@Smurfee: time zones permitting, I'm game for next Friday!)



* - I hope you stick around, RainsOpacity! For her first non-intro blog she lists some soundtracks guaranteed to make your skin crawl.

* - Right on schedule, more video game music: it's Jet Set Radio's OST Case Study. Hell yeah.

* - It's been a while since Voltech has blogged for us, but as always it's a fascinating read. The topic today: destroying and 'saving' the world in Devil Survivor 2.

P - Pocketoid Episode 51 is all about the Gameboy! It's so weird to think it's actually older than me.

A - I'm all for this idea: Ocelot may be starting a series on the best levels in platformers.









T - PixelFiend has its first impressions on Watch_Dogs ready. Mixed feelings, sounds like.




- Less babies though Nintendo, please. You have so many characters, use them!




- On the left: the biggest innovation in Mario Kart history.

F - This tells us nothing about anything.



[EDIT: Never mind, not two minutes after I put up these caps Mario Kart 8 did arrive. False alarm, I guess? No clue what happened there, but I'm not complaining!]

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Just for Kicks

There are so many aspects of a story that tend to get overlooked, but one of the hugest is the trusty sidekick. These characters are mostly subjected to simply being the butt of a joke or only exist to service the narrative, but they help immerse players in the world, and they’re too often forgotten in favor of the star of the show.

For instance, look at Clank from the Ratchet & Clank series. This adorable robot spends the majority of the game strapped to Ratchet’s back and mainly works to further gameplay, but the experience would not be the same without him. Even if it’s only for a brief moment, he even gets his own playable segments in the newest reboot of the franchise. This little guy means a lot to me, and it’s tough not to love him.

Then, of course, there are annoying fucks like Navi in Ocarina of Time. How many times can you scream, “Hey, listen!” before I start daydreaming about strangling you until you’re but a distant memory? In Navi’s case, I’m going to throw out an arbitrary number and say twenty-three. I get why Navi exists, to help lead players in the right direction and offer vague tips, but holy fuck do I wish someone had the common sense to delete that bastard fairy from existence.

For this month’s Bloggers Wanted, I want to hear about your most memorable sidekicks and companions. It doesn’t matter why you remember them, whether love or hate, but I know there are plenty out there that folks are passionate about. Hell, you could even talk about the cute, furry little creatures that all of the best developers put in their creations, like the floating death machines in Castle Crashers. I don’t care if their story is written into the script or it’s part of your own headcanon that only exists inside your sick, twisted, totally fucked up brain. Lay it on me, y'all.

To participate, head over to the community blogs and format your title as “Just For Kicks: [insert title here].” If it’s good enough, there’s a chance that you might even see your words grace the Front Page of Destructoid!
