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! H-superhobo gives us a few pics of his gaming set-up. 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.

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. A-Faith, having run out of her usual art medium, makes a pixel art painting that’s quite nice. F-Oh, Karl Urban…umm, anyway, Rev’s got a new AMC blog posting up. 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.
