Weeeeeeeeell I got nuthin'.

This week was pretty uneventful. I've been working a bit, I played some more Pikmin 3 and some other games on Steam. Mostly Ys: The Oath in Felghana which is pretty good, but I liked Ys: Origin better. Played Papers, Please as well, which is an interesting experiment if nothing else.

Other than that, I started rewatching the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, which I haven't done in many years for reasons beyond the grasp of mortal ken. I had completely forgotten how utterly pointless Dead Man's Chest is. Literally nothing gets resolved in that movie. And when they DO look like they've resolved something in the last five minutes of the movie, they immediately decided to UNDO said resolving. Which is what we see in At World's End. Oh well. I still like these movies, and it's fun watching them again and/or trying to get my grubby hands on those kickass soundtracks.

That's all I got, so have some music!



* - (This blog was missed earlier, so I'm taking it now) Nanbu wrote a good blog that raises valid points on making characters into inclusion checklists...but can we have ever so slightly less name-calling next time? Pretty please?

P - The new Communitoid is right on cue for PAX. It also has nuns and dildos, make of that what you will.

A - Having discussed the best parts of this console generation last time, Cinderquill now takes a look at the dark side.

A - Can GlowBear bring ethics into the world of Pokémon? Read on to find out!

A - DapperMouse (I like that username, "dapper" is a good word) provides an interesting look on the world of Dragon Age, and how it would suck living in it.

A - A lenghty look at the Nintendo 2DS. Personally I think it's not really as difficult as people make it out to be, but that's neither here nor there.





E - PanaMusica is taking Scield to PAX, and he could use some suggestions for cool photo ops.

E - Marche100 does some effective guilt tripping to get his avatar adopted.

E - Going to PAX? Here are some bars you might want to check out!

D - Design on Sprout's Tale is still going steady. Gotta say I think it looks pretty good.

N - Another day, another shooting blamed on video games.

T - I never heard of Conquest Mode before, but it sounds like the coolest shit. Pixielated is competely right then to want it back for Soul Calibur II HD.





C - The many woes of international shipping.

May you always find water and shade

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!
