Greetings, fellow automatons.

In the background tonight, I have a torrent of Jonathan Coulton Looks Back percolating away. He's probably best known in these parts for writing the closing credits song for Portal, but he's done many fairly geeky songs that statistically, if you're reading this, you will enjoy. He's well versed in gaming and internet social trends, having released a couple of his songs as free downloads for Rock Band-- and everyone who's met him at PAX or other events has said he's just as awesome in real life as you would expect. The album is a legal torrent, all of the songs distributable under Creative Commons, and can be grabbed right here if you are so inclined. It won't cost you anything except time, why not have a listen?


Seeing this live was one of the highlights of my life. No exaggeration.

I traded my copy of Bioshock for a friend's copy of Fallout 3 for a while and have just started that up. I expect to be exploring the D.C. Wasteland for quite a while. The first two Fallout games reminded me of Choose-your-own-adventure books, and each save was like putting your thumb on a page to see what would happen next. I hope this one continues that tradition.

Lots of reviews today, but not much news. Let's get to the recaps.

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!
