Hello, everyone! The holiday Steam sale has begun, and I've already gotten a few games. I bought La-Mulana for dirt cheap, and received Monaco as a gift. Luckily, both games run on my crappy laptop (although Monaco is a bit sluggish). I played both games for a bit today, and then I noticed that I'd sunk a full hour into La-Mulana without realizing it. I can already tell that game's gonna be fantastic!



I also got Killer is Dead recently, thanks to birthday money, and I've been playing through that as well. It's really great so far, although the gigolo missions are really jarring and lame. I'll probably skip out on those. The boss battles so far have been really awesome! I particularly enjoyed the creepy fight against Alice and the fight against the Yakuza dude that took place on a sand garden. I also love the character design for David, although I kinda wish they never made any mention of it in the dialogue (like they never do for ridiculously scantily clad female characters). 

Since I loved Killer7 and No More Heroes, this is exactly the kind of game I've been hoping to see from Suda51; epic boss battles, bizarre characters, beautiful levels, and great music! And I do see what they were attempting to do with the gigolo missions, playing up the flirtatious side of Mondo Zappa, but I really think they could have gone about it in a different way. Oh well... Suda51 games are never perfect (but they're still pretty darn good!).

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!
