LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/17/09 + Strykisms

   0


Yesterday, after another rough night of indigestion that prevented me from getting any sleep... yet again... I forced myself to get to work, the last day of work before my Christmas break began. For the trip back, my air conditioner decided to die and leave me sweltering in the 90 degree heat. Over the course of the day, the sore throat that I had been nursing all week gave way to a full-blown cold. As of this moment, I still haven't regained my voice.

Oh, and the job I drive an hour to and an hour from? The one I willed myself to go to that morning? Yeah, I no longer have that job.

Merry Christmas.

On the positive side, I can finally catch up on my backlog and start pumping out more articles. I'm also doing some writing over at Gamer Limit, but who isn't, honestly? Half the Cblogs is working over there now! It's a party! Come visit us!

All in all, I think I'm still gonna have a lovely Christmas. That won't stop me from spreading a little humbug:




*- SykoShadow explains how the further games strive for "realism," the more disconcerting they become.

*- walkyourpath's five-step program for overcoming griefing, yours for only three easy installments of $19.99!

*- I fear for Elsa's husband if he ever decides to break from her.

*- Yeah... YEAH! I'm diggin' your style, BenelliM4! Flash games like those you listed need more respect!

*- P4KO decks the muthafuckin' halls with this sick cover of a Christmas classic.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Just for Kicks

There are so many aspects of a story that tend to get overlooked, but one of the hugest is the trusty sidekick. These characters are mostly subjected to simply being the butt of a joke or only exist to service the narrative, but they help immerse players in the world, and they’re too often forgotten in favor of the star of the show.

For instance, look at Clank from the Ratchet & Clank series. This adorable robot spends the majority of the game strapped to Ratchet’s back and mainly works to further gameplay, but the experience would not be the same without him. Even if it’s only for a brief moment, he even gets his own playable segments in the newest reboot of the franchise. This little guy means a lot to me, and it’s tough not to love him.

Then, of course, there are annoying fucks like Navi in Ocarina of Time. How many times can you scream, “Hey, listen!” before I start daydreaming about strangling you until you’re but a distant memory? In Navi’s case, I’m going to throw out an arbitrary number and say twenty-three. I get why Navi exists, to help lead players in the right direction and offer vague tips, but holy fuck do I wish someone had the common sense to delete that bastard fairy from existence.

For this month’s Bloggers Wanted, I want to hear about your most memorable sidekicks and companions. It doesn’t matter why you remember them, whether love or hate, but I know there are plenty out there that folks are passionate about. Hell, you could even talk about the cute, furry little creatures that all of the best developers put in their creations, like the floating death machines in Castle Crashers. I don’t care if their story is written into the script or it’s part of your own headcanon that only exists inside your sick, twisted, totally fucked up brain. Lay it on me, y'all.

To participate, head over to the community blogs and format your title as “Just For Kicks: [insert title here].” If it’s good enough, there’s a chance that you might even see your words grace the Front Page of Destructoid!
