I spent this evening in an itchy sweater depicting 2 gentlemen fishing for large-mouth bass.

A friend of mine is moving to New Mexico for a few months. She’s the kind of friend who enjoys it when her friends do weird and stupid shit. So I had the idea of doing ugly sweater pics with a handful of friends. If you’ve never done anything like that with your close group of friends, reconsider. It’s a fucking awesome time acting like complete jackasses, especially when the end result of jackassery is great photos like this:







Jesus Christ, it’s days like today that make me fall in love with the community. We have probably the most Topsauced blogs ever, discussion about Disney villains, and a little Fail to piss in your coffee. Enjoy.



*-So Chad Concelmo made a list of the best Disney villains, which stevenxonward added to, and ace of knaves got pissed about.

*-Xzyliac continues his incredible series on bands grossly under-represented in Rock Band.

*-Togail. Do I need to say anything further?

*-Elsa helps to make the season bright with these fucking awesome Christmas traditions. I am SO TOTALLY doing the Christmas journal!

*-Ali D takes a great in-depth look at a game I just finished, Dead Space, in light of the sequel announcement.

*-Arkhon defends Rock band and Guitar Hero in the best way possible.

*-Technophile attempts to get a Dtoid WoW guild going, and muses about his time in Azeroth.

*-A wonderful selection of indie shmups, presented by Diverse.

*-Sevil Monthly Muses about the game stories that pull a Fonzie towards the end.

*-randombullseye expounds on his hatred for getting rid of games, either by trading or borrowing.

*-If you didn’t catch it on the front page, here’s an account of the Dtoid UK crew taking over the Capcom Christmas party.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Overstuffed

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!
