So I'm back after having last weekend off from my usual recap duties. I would like to thank Magnalon and Nintendoll for filling in for me. I was at the beach visiting an old friend, getting some sun, and seeing the new Harry Potter movie. If you haven't seen it yet, and you are a Harry Potter fan, then I highly recommend you go see it. What am I saying? If you are a real Harry Potter fan you already did see the movie.

Speaking of movies, my girlfriend took me with her to go see the new Katherine Heigl movie, The Ugly Truth, tonight. As far as romantic comedies go, this was wasn't so bad. You could definitely do a lot worse guys. It's got Gerard Butler, from the popular movie 300, in it, which was pretty cool. I kept expecting him to say "This is Sparta", but he never did. Oh well. If your girlfriends/wives drag you to this movie, just know you will probably enjoy it.

Let's speak games for just a moment shall we. If you guys haven't played the new PSN game Shatter yet, you really should. This game is totally awesome. It's kind of like Arkanoid, but on crack. Yeah, I would say that a fair description of the game. It's only $7.99, so go pick it up now. I promise you won't regret it.

Ok let's get on with the Saturday recaps shall we.

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!
