Cblogs of 6/10/18 & 6/17/18 + Your Mom Won E3 lol


I never bought into the whole, "Who won E3?" thing. Partly because it's usually just rampant fanboyism that determines the winner, and partly because it's just so damned subjective. I don't consider 45 minutes of playing Smash Bros. "winning" anything, but lots of folks were really into Nintendo's presentation. Inversely, I really liked Sony's different approach to the conference, even if the execution was extremely flawed. Different strokes and all of that.

That said, I think there are definitely losers at E3. A recent Qpost reminded me of the splendor that once was Booth Babes. Good old Booth Babes. For those who don't remember, Booth Babes were essentially models that companies would hire to stand around and look hot while nerds nervously pawed at them. They were shut down years ago for several reasons, chief of which being they were kind of a bad look on the industry. Was the use of Booth Babes actually sexist? Probably not for me to determine. Do I miss seeing attractive women dressed up like sexy Crash Bandicoot?

I'll let you be the judge of that.

* - J Jason Rodriguez contributes to this month's Band of Bloggers prompt with a nice little tribute to his dad, the ever-present NPC in his life. It's a good read that sticks with the theme it set out for. Read it!

S - I'm gonna be honest with you here, I have no clue what this blog is about. I read it and everything, but we have so little time on this planet that I can't be bothered by the constant outrage of the internet. Dwavenhobble talks about something Jim Sterling said, and I guess people are mad? I don't know. If you like spending your breath on this sort of thing, then I suppose you can hop right in.

S - MightyMagikarp is tackling the massive roster of the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate by giving a rundown of each of the 70-ish characters in the game. This list sees fighters 13-26. Nothing can convince me that Mario actually has a legitimate doctorate degree.

E - I have a pretty amazing streak of making it in to Comments of the Week by simply recycling that excellent Fartnite joke of mine. And I'm never, ever going to stop.

E - Bethesda memed itself. I think that's against the rules, right? Anyway, CotW does yet another fantastic job compiling all the dumb shit we say...this time taken directly from the Bethesda E3 stream!

D - I don't know if this counts as spam or not, but I'm willing to give Rahul Martin the chance to tell us about his work in an informative, bloggy kind of way. If he starts to spam us, though, I'm afraid we'll have to let him go. Choose wisely, Rahul!

T - Monkey830 recaps the Bethesda E3 presentation. I don't know about you, but I'm fucking hype as hell to blast some Nazis in 1980s Paris with twin ass-kickers in the new Wolfenstein game!

T - Flegma walks us through his experience with GRIDD: Retroenhanced Edition for Switch. I'd never heard of the game, but the photos in the blog are quite impressive. What can I say? I'm a sucker for 80s neon.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Just for Kicks

There are so many aspects of a story that tend to get overlooked, but one of the hugest is the trusty sidekick. These characters are mostly subjected to simply being the butt of a joke or only exist to service the narrative, but they help immerse players in the world, and they’re too often forgotten in favor of the star of the show.

For instance, look at Clank from the Ratchet & Clank series. This adorable robot spends the majority of the game strapped to Ratchet’s back and mainly works to further gameplay, but the experience would not be the same without him. Even if it’s only for a brief moment, he even gets his own playable segments in the newest reboot of the franchise. This little guy means a lot to me, and it’s tough not to love him.

Then, of course, there are annoying fucks like Navi in Ocarina of Time. How many times can you scream, “Hey, listen!” before I start daydreaming about strangling you until you’re but a distant memory? In Navi’s case, I’m going to throw out an arbitrary number and say twenty-three. I get why Navi exists, to help lead players in the right direction and offer vague tips, but holy fuck do I wish someone had the common sense to delete that bastard fairy from existence.

For this month’s Bloggers Wanted, I want to hear about your most memorable sidekicks and companions. It doesn’t matter why you remember them, whether love or hate, but I know there are plenty out there that folks are passionate about. Hell, you could even talk about the cute, furry little creatures that all of the best developers put in their creations, like the floating death machines in Castle Crashers. I don’t care if their story is written into the script or it’s part of your own headcanon that only exists inside your sick, twisted, totally fucked up brain. Lay it on me, y'all.

To participate, head over to the community blogs and format your title as “Just For Kicks: [insert title here].” If it’s good enough, there’s a chance that you might even see your words grace the Front Page of Destructoid!
