Happy Father's Day to all of the Dtoid dads out there. I hope you all had a nice relaxing day, hopefully filled with some personal time to catch up on those video games you haven't had much time to play lately. Check out Yojimbo's blog for a nice Father's Day tribute.

Calling all Gears of War 2 junkies. I am currently on the lookout for some fellow Dtoiders to play Gears of War 2 with. After owning the game since the day it came out, I have finally gotten around to playing it, and I'm absolutely loving it. The only problem is, I really want to play through the story campaign on co-op, but I don't know anyone who owns the game. I'm looking for someone who would be interested in playing through the game with me, and who won't ruin the experience by skipping cut scenes, or telling me what's going to happen next. Besides that, I'm also looking for some people who would be interested in doing some multiplayer deathmatch, and maybe some Horde mode. If anyone is interested please let me know below.

In other news, I recently played and beat Beyond Good and Evil for the first time. I was 6 years late to the party, but it was worth the wait. I extremely enjoyed my time with the game, and when it was all over it left me wanting even more. It made me realize how 80% of the games that come out these days have lifeless, emotionless characters who have no more depth then a rock. How are you supposed to have any emotional attachment to these types of characters? Beyond Good and Evil had characters with lots of depth and emotion, who I actually cared about and felt for. Why is it so hard for other developers to get this kind of important stuff right? If I am forced to care about one more lifeless marine who's out to save the world with his assault rifle, I'm going to go crazy.

Ok, now 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!
