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.

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!
