So what have I done today. Somewhere between 'fuck' and 'all' might be the best answer. The reason for this is because I FUCKING FINALLY finished a Final Fantasy game on Tuesday and was struck by that weird thing where you finish a game and lose all willingness to play anything whatsoever. I got the same thing after finishing Assassin's Creed 2. However I did shrug it off to finish up the campaign in Modern Warfare 2, the only feeling that 'ending' gave to me is that the Modern Warfare series can go fuck itself. Nothing would make me happier than for Medal of Honour to come out next year and for it to be brilliant. It won't be brilliant because this is Medal of Honour, a series that rode on one brilliant sequence for several games, but I'd love it if it turned out that way.

Back to finishing a Final Fantasy game though. You may remember this blog I did earlier this year listing 23 JRPGs I had lying around unfinished. Well it took way too long but while I have revisited pretty much all of those games at some point the only one I've pushed to completion is Final Fantasy 12. Let me say that my pushing that to the finale only served to confirm my previous assertion that 12 is the best of the series. Hopefully I'll regain the ability to play videogames sometime soon. Maybe around the time I remember where I put my copy of Eternal Sonata.

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!
