Hello everyone! I had a pretty fun weekend; got to see George Takei at the Columbus pride festival and spent some time playing board games with friends, but unfortunately the fun ended with painful sunburns and my car getting towed... so I'm not in the best mood at the moment.

Board game night was really cool though. We played Bang, Betrayal at House on the Hill, and some expansions of Cards Against Humanity. I hadn't played the first two games before, but I play CAH quite regularly. Bang was an easy-to-learn card game about a Wild West shootout, with outlaws, sheriffs, deputies and renegades trying to claim victory over everyone else. It's pretty cool because no one knows who anyone else is (except the sheriff), so you have to figure out who's an outlaw and who's a deputy and try to plan your strategy around those assumptions. The sheriff and deputy were victorious in our game, but unfortunately I was an outlaw.



Betrayal at House on the Hill was a much more complicated board game about a group of people exploring a haunted house, and it was so much fun! There's a ton of different scenarios that can happen, and the game is different every time you play. During our game, an alien virus broke out in the haunted house, and everyone became susceptible to infection. It was the traitors' goal to infect everyone else, and it was the survivors' goal to create a serum to wipe out the infection, but no one knew who was infected or not so it was really intense. I ended up being the last survivor, with everyone else either infected or dead, but eventually the infected killed me, so I lost. I really hope I get the chance to play this game again sometime, because it was awesome!

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!
