Cblogs of 10/16/2017 + A Course on Bullshit


You know when your company takes you away from important work to spend 5-weeks in some HR bullshit course?

If you don't, it probably means you don't work for a company that cares very little for its resources.

I don't exactly love my job. I like that its sometimes challenging, and that there is always a tangible result to your work. Mostly, I see how my time directly contributes to some progress. This is why I dislike these kinds of courses. They are basic bullshit about leadership, life, and career. Bullshit to distract people from the inherent neoptisim of the company, and the fact that most (if not all) of them are probably expendable in some form or another.

Oh well, there will be 5 weeks of this. Better park my brain somewhere during "work" time.


B- When there is combat in your horror game, it allows the player the oppurtinity to power through their fears, just as mullon managed to do against the feared zombies of Resident Evil.

S- Comments of the Week is back, and some of the usual suspects still manage to kill it week after week.

S- I must confess that I have not heared about the Crypt of the Necrodancer. However, after hearing its soundtrack as part of ADanToThePast's Tone Deaf blog series, I am not thinking hard about giving it a go.

S- Agent9 is back with another spooky tune, this time from a campy mixed bag of a horror game. Sound intresting at times, but mostly tedious.


S- Sometimes you don't have the time. Soemtimes, the words simply are not coming to you. Maybe, you even hate whatever you write. Anyways, if that's the case for you, and you feel guilty about not particiapting in the blogs as much as you want to due to it, then know that just like the navi is a lie, you are welcome here. Always. Also, good luck in your writings, and in your life.



R- SpielerDad is back with another funny blog about gaming and drinking, at least it would be funnier for me if I drink alcohol at all. Note: This blog does not encourage alcoholisim.

Save Camelot from Waluigi's Dungeon of doom
Anyway, here are the games I am currently playing. Those in bold I am going to review when completed:
  • Xenoblade Chronicles (Wii).
  • Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars (DS).
  • Landstalker (Genesis).
  • Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy (PS4).
  • Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (PS3).

Also, here are my latest reviews:

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment


Is there a holiday or time of the year more indulgent than Thanksgiving? I mean, we cook a turkey that weighs as much as three newborn babies, whip up about a billion sides consisting mostly of carbs and butter, and top the whole thing off with nine different pies, all featuring the main ingredient of "excess." It's equal parts disgusting and awesome, and is definitely my second favorite holiday behind our dearly departed Halloween.

But we were so occupied with whether we could eat six pounds of food in one sitting, that we didn't stop to think if we should. That brings us to November's Bloggers Wanted prompt: Overstuffed.

Playing through Horizon Zero Dawn really got me thinking on this topic. Don't get me wrong, the game has a really cool and fairly unique sci-fi story, the combat is fun and engaging, and the art direction uses vibrant color - a concept that largely died out near the end of the PS2 era, but man, is it long. The map is huge and stuffed with nooks, crannies and collectibles, and boy, by the time I wrapped the story and collected my Platinum trophy the game had really worn out its welcome. It's a shame really, as I truly enjoyed the game for its main components; but by the time I had picked off my ten-thousandth evil villager and performed my ten-billionth stealth kill on a Ravager, I found myself wishing the game would end soon.

I got this feeling about 3/4 of the way into the game. That is not good.

Modern gaming is great in that developers tend to pack in a metric shit-ton of things to do in their games. Modern gaming is also horrible because developers tend to pack in a metric shit-ton of things to do in their games. This tendency to overstuff their games with content is often overwhelming and can cause an otherwise excellent experience to drag. It was less of a problem when I was 18 and had all the time in the world; at 30 with a day job and a family, it's a complete game-changer.

So, beloved Destructoid Community, tell of us a time you felt overstuffed from gaming! It can be from a game you enjoyed that just felt too long like above, a time you binged on all thirty-two Kingdom Hearts titles, a particularly meaty haul of games you got at a yard sale - anything at all that celebrates or at least discusses your Thanksgiving-like excesses in gaming!

Write a blog with "Overstuffed:" and then your subject in the title, and let the world know of your girthy gaming experiences! We love promoting blogs to the front page here at Dtoid, and Bloggers Wanted is a great way to get noticed *wink wink nudge nudge hip thrust*

Happy blogging, everyone!
