Hello dearies! ScottyG here on yet another Monday to help you kickstart another work week. Once again thanks to Garison for switching days with me last week.

Boo-urns on the Dtoid forums being down for the last day or so. Shame too, as I'm really excited to share my recent acquisition:


Boo-yah! Boxed, with instructions and in amazing condition! Did cost me my copies of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and Seasons, however to be honest if I'm ever going to play a portable Zelda again I'll keep going with Link's Awakening. I had the opportunity to pick up a boxed copy of Mega Man 2 as well, but the instructions were missing so I passed. Also I already have a near mint boxed copy of Mega Man 2 so this would have just been for collecting/forum trading. ;)

I may have said it before, but I'm surprised time and time again at the selection of games you can find in my otherwise bland little town. The flea market vendors typically grossly overcharge you, but their selection is absolutely impressive and there are 3 or 4 such vendors there every week. I am tempted when the forums come back up to keep a list of people's wants so I can work in some trades. ;)

As for my life outside of gaming, a coworker today gave me a bit of a lesson in communicating with our client. Essentially we need to get them to say things in writing, so we can throw it in their face when they inevitably screw up and try to push blame onto us. Now, I'm not sure about you all but I find the complete lack of trust and respect we're showing each other quite depressing. Even more depressing when you remember that business in general works like this. :(


*- Wan Sum Dung reminds me why I love Majora's Mask, which is totally better than Ocarina of Time
*- DaedHead8 gives an awesome overview of the game pad attachment to the LG Versa, and reviews some games available for the phone
*- Awesome intro and setup from possumwrangler, although I wonder how many people straighten out their setup for these pictures :P
*- Gunslinger1711 is the last man in rapture. Very good story

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!
