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.



* - Pixielated's shares a sauce-worthy gaming story about the joy of the Gaming Multiverse.
* - The Last of Us & Storytelling in Games - Mlsa delivers a smart analysis of how storytelling works in games, using The Last of Us as an example.



A - Worldbuilding & Morrowind - Shuuda discusses worldbuilding in videogames, using Morrowind as a great example.
P - Scary Granules Episode 14 - SG and crew talk about Rezzed, a newer gaming convention.





E - Weekend Warriors -  Smurfee invites everyone to share what they're playing this weekend so they can get together with others. (um yeah recap not too timely heh)



T - Console Gaming - Sidd4friends contemplates the future of console gaming in light of competition from other platforms
T - The Last of Us - Mlsa asks whether games really need to be "fun"
R - Disgaea 2 - Troy gives us a review of the PSP version of this classic RPG.
R - The Last of Us - Mlsa has been busy today, eh? Good review of The Last of Us.
R - Company of Heroes 2 - GreaterThanGaming didn't like COH2 so much. Very detailed review, with good reasons for the criticism.
T - YouTube & Games - Spyonan asks why so many game commentators on YouTube have trouble succeeding..
T - Next Gen - Spieler Dad says next-gen will be great no matter what console you choose, so stop it with the fanboyism!





C - PS1 games: Bleem > PS3? - PopetheRev ponders why PS1 games look better on the Bleem emulator than on the PS3.
C - Ellie vs Ellen - Issaac tries to debunk the idea that The Last of Us' Ellie is based on Ellen Page, with mixed results.


I can't remember where I saw this (lol my bad if it was here - double fail!), but it certainly counts as fail. Hmmm, I wonder if this is what happened to Phil...



Anyway, screw stress and anything that isn't fun. I'm going to chill out and play some FEZ, and nobody's gonna stop me!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
New Years Evil

So for this month's prompt, we should look to our best examples of scum and villainy. Talk about your favorite antagonists, villains, bad guys, and malcontents and why you like them so much. Certainly not because you want to be like them since the powers of law and order are probably keeping a close and watchful eye on us. But you know, hypothetically, if I were to recommend my own personal favorite villain, it might be Manfred Von Karma from Ace Attorney. The guy is irredeemably terrible, believing in not just results no matter the cost, but also a total disdain for nearly everyone around him since they most likely aren't as perfect as him.

For January's bloggers wanted prompt, just create a new community blog, start the title with "New Year's evil: [your blog title here]" and tell us about your favorite villains.

From the terrible like Flowey, to forces of nature like Gigyas. Go ham! We won't judge you since we're talking in hypotheticals. As long as we're talking about bad guys since Yoshikage Kira wasn't bad. Kira just wanted to live a peaceful life. He just happened to be a serial killer, you know?
