LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 6/24/18 & 7/1/18 & 7/8/18 + Friday the 13th

   0

Friday the 13th is soon upon us, and to celebrate I recently picked up Friday the 13th on PS4. It's not a perfect game, and many, many parts of it are janky as fuck, but I'll be damned if it isn't a fun little multiplayer romp. Playing as the counselors has a good sense of tension and dread, and playing as Jason is lots of fun as you're able to teleport around and do dumb supernatural serial killer shit all in the name of slaying horny teens.

That said, I'm pretty terrible at it. I'm usually the first counselor killed, and can't seem to be able to kill anyone as Jason. It's partly due to how bad I am at multiplayer games these days, and partly due to how little time I can devote to gitting gud enough to actually be effective. So for now, the game is best played with friends where I can talk shit and get killed repeatedly without having to upset randos online.

If you have the game, hit me up! A few other users and I are planning to get some more regular games going, so the more the merrier. You know how to find me.

* - Dango puts together a nice little list of video game locations he'd actually like to visit. Honestly, you could put basically any Mario level in there and I'd probably be down. Even the dungeon levels! I hope I never have to visit Camp Crystal Lake, though...

S - Flegma goes on another SP Solace journey with Yono and the Celestial Elephants. The game looks cute as heck, but it looks the gameplay is a bit lacking. Also, there are probably no environmental kills in this game, which is kind of harshing my mellow.

M - Shoggoth2588 slays more games every month than Jason slays promiscuous campers. He played like 15 games in June, which is pretty insane to me. I think I played like four. And those were for reviews. Where does he get the time?!

S - Jason eventually gets us all, as Toys R Us can confirm. Pacario shares some photos from the last couple of days of his local TRU's existence, waxing nostalgic on the time when he didn't want to grow up, on account of being a Toys R Us kid.

E - Band of Bloggers is back, baby! In this month's prompt, LaTerry asks users to share their gaming thoughts on robots. You know, in Jason X Mr. Vorhees became Cyber Jason. I think that counts.

R - Dwavenhobble puts together a nice little memorandum on TotalBiscuit and how his work impacted Dwaven's own.

T - Kesith feels like all he's played this year is Yakuza, and you know what? He's fine with that. I haven't played any of the Yakuza games yet, myself, but I hear they're pretty good. Are there any hockey minigames?

L - I don't really like ice cream, so I can't speak to the veracity of these claims. I do enjoy a nice ice cream sandwich from time to time, though. Hey, what's Jason's favorite ice cream flavor?

See you at Camp Crystal Lake!

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!
