I think that this might be one of the greatest weeks I've seen in a long time, and it's only Tuesday! First, yesterday, having MLK Day off, I did what anyone would do to celebrate the great Civil Rights leader: stay in the house and watch a Powerpuff Girls marathon while finishing Symphony of The Night. As if that wasn't enough, today's historic inauguration was a beautiful thing to behold. But, it's not nearly as cool as what I picked up today: LEFT 4 DEAD!!! I'm finally one of the many to become a Survivor, and I've loved every minute of it. As the rest of the week goes on, tomorrow promises my first glass blowing class and the season premier of Lost. Thursday is free dinner with my folks, and Friday, I'll hopefully participate in my first FNF with the Dtoid gang!
Anyway, in today's recaps, we've got tits galore, a Xenu-hating Shamwow spokesman, and, for some ungodly reason, Alf.
I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Recaps, and will, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Cblogs of Destructoid.
*-Because, honestly, who’s not a fan of tits…the best jubblies in video games.

Special little places
In this month's bloggers wanted prompt, we want to you talk about the physical places you may or may not appreciate in your daily lives as a gamer. Do you find the quiet monotony of public transportation like a train the perfect routine to always get a game in? Maybe you have a relative's home that brings a familiar and comforting feeling as a place and memory. I was just talking about when I played my 3DS in times of uncertainty in my car, so don't think any place is too small or insignificant to share. It could be a chair you've had for nearly half your life that you always sit on as you boot up your favorite gaming console. It could be the classic dream of a gaming room, filled wall-to-wall with your collection of video games *cough*ChillyBilly*cough* and memorabilia.
