So my 22nd birthday is coming up Thursday. I've always had a problem with telling people that; I can't seem to find a good way to point out that it's my birthday, unless I've got a party invitation or something. I always think that if I tell someone I'll come off as a dick who just wants recognition/presents/a blowjob for nothing, but I also hate lame birthdays where people don't say shit to you. Oh darn is it a conundrum. Long story short, BUY ME THINGS FOR THURSDAY!!!!!!!
Alright, enough of whoring out May 21st for my own needs, it's time for some recaps. On today's agenda, we've got BulletMagnet showing us how he got his name, lovely words about Podtoid, and no failure.
In the words of the late great Col. Sanders, "I'm to drunk to taste these cblogs."
*-BulletMagnet teaches game developers exactly how to make a better shmup in this fantastic new Forgotten Essentials article.
*-Though we might not think about it, Achievements can really change the way we approach a game. SilverDragon explains further in this great post.
*-Please, game devs, make kauza cry. He just wanted to shed some tears now and again!
*-A very clean, concise, well-written Eternal Sonata review.
*-Ah, Community Discusses talks about the best and worst of levels, a topic near and dear to my heart.
P-Tubatic makes tears well up in my eyes and Rev’s black heart melt with this post about Podtoid 100.
P-Ugh…FAILCAST recorded tonight.
Oh God I cannot stop listening to these guys...
S-ParaParaKing starts his in-depth look at RPG dungeons with this Persona 3 post.
I-Everyone, welcome Davor Von Pavalanch and his glandular problem to Dtoid!

N-Though it’s kinda old now, TewDee let’s us know about the Fallout DLC coming to PSN and the GotY editions, and shares his thoughts.
N-The new Conduit box art looks like a cipher Robert Langdon would need to solve to save the world.
Today, blurrypheonix wrote 2 reviews, using the greatest ratings system ever concocted: Here’s GOW: Chains of Olympus
and Professor Hienz Wolff’s Gravity
R-twister1988 lets us know about the grestest shmup we’ve probably never heard of, Prehistoric Isle 2.
R-Holy shit, this is pretty neat: doctor insidius video-reviews the GP2X Wiz, some sort of handheld not-emulator system.
R-ChillyBilly takes a look at the DSi and…OH GOD THAT LAST PICTURE IS SCARY.
T-Hey, there ARE a bunch of awesome 2D fighters coming out this year. covah thinks it might be a sign of a comeback.

S-Oooooh! The purdy Little Mac boxing glove from Amazon gets unboxed.
L-Oh Valve, you so crazy!
?-nilcam has a problem, and it involves hardware buying. And possibly meth.
Ah, nothing beats a short recap than a day of no failure.

Special little places
In this month's bloggers wanted prompt, we want to you talk about the physical places you may or may not appreciate in your daily lives as a gamer. Do you find the quiet monotony of public transportation like a train the perfect routine to always get a game in? Maybe you have a relative's home that brings a familiar and comforting feeling as a place and memory. I was just talking about when I played my 3DS in times of uncertainty in my car, so don't think any place is too small or insignificant to share. It could be a chair you've had for nearly half your life that you always sit on as you boot up your favorite gaming console. It could be the classic dream of a gaming room, filled wall-to-wall with your collection of video games *cough*ChillyBilly*cough* and memorabilia.
