Cblogs of 08/09/13 and 08/16/13 + bbainisms

Hello friends! I'm giving you two Fridays' worth of blogs today, because it seems last Friday's recaps were forgotten about while I was on vacation. And speaking of my vacation, I had a lovely time in North Carolina last week with my family. Got to chill out on the beach, swim in the waves, and pick up a wild horseshoe crab. Those things are pretty bizarre! Anyway, it was a very relaxing week and a much needed break from work. 

While on vacation, I also played a bit of Wario Land 3, my first venture into the Wario Land series. I'm really enjoying it, and plan to pick up 4 at some point as well. I love Wario's wacky animations; flailing around in the water, wobbling up ladders, shouldering enemies into oblivion. He's definitely a unique player character. 



I also got to show my 4-year-old niece how to play the game, after her curiosity was piqued by watching me play. She was pretty good, too! She figured out how to defeat those polar bears that shoot ice at you all by herself, even though she couldn't figure out where she was supposed to go after that (she's 4 though, give her a break!). Moments like that make me excited to be an uncle. I probably won't have any children of my own to introduce to video games, but introducing my nieces to them is surely just as fulfilling! I've already played some other Nintendo games with her at my sister's house, like Super Mario Bros. 2 and 3D World Runner (she especially liked that one, for some reason). And during my last vacation, my other niece watched me play some Shadow of the Colossus, and she seemed to really enjoy it, as she gasped and rooted for me to win. Being an uncle can be fun :)

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
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!
