Was a stressful week on Destructoid, at least it felt that way to me. Lots of debating about games, gender, journalistic integrity, etc. Not that those things aren't important, but sometimes I think we all need to spend more time playing games and a little less arguing about them!
Still, I've found time for some fun. Poker Night 2 was on sale, so I picked it up. I suck at Poker, but I wanted it mostly for the lol's since I love all the characters in it. Would love to see Moxxi as a player in the next one. Oh, the innuendos.
And there's no real evidence for it, but I like to pretend your silent character is Gordon Freeman. Hey, it's possible!
A lot of people are discussing which console they're going to get this November, and whether it even matters. I'm having similar thoughts. Just not about consoles...
The 760 is getting rave reviews everywhere, I guess for $260 it's a pretty smashing card. I'm going to hold out for a 3GB version, though, and maybe a drop to $200ish. My HD6870 still kicks enough ass that I can bide my time...
Oh oh oh oh... in case you missed the news, the new Mortal Kombat Komplete is finally coming out on PC Tuesday. It's only $30 and you can snag an extra 25% off on GMG with the voucher "GMG25-BAWQB-8UQWG". I barely play fighting games, but for like $23 I couldn't say no. Hence the backlog from hell. Or heaven. First world gamer problems, eh?
Okay, enough of my -ismz. May I present your lovely Saturday recaps, which include some tasty sauce and good reviews.
Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment Turning Japanese Japanese culture is everywhere in video games, not to mention that Japanese developers always seem to put their own spin on a game. What does Japan mean to your favorite games?
