Cblogs of 8/1/13 + (no) Pikmin-isms

   0


My friends. My dear, sweet, wonderful friends. And all you other buttholes. A terrible injustice has occurred. An injustice of a scale not seen since Injustice. An injustice that will make you go “Well yes Shade, that is an injustice indeed”. Ready? Are you sure? Because it is the injusticeyest.

I do not have Pikmin 3.


- This, except no strange creatures either.

Don’t get me wrong, I ordered it alright. I paid my money for it. It has, however, not arrived. I ordered it last Thursday, right before its EU release date. So release rolls around; no Pikmin. The day after release; no Pikmin. The day after that was a Sunday, so no Pikmin can be forgiven….maybe. Surely, Monday would be the one, right? Nope, no Pikmin. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday; Still no Pikmin. As this Recap goes up it will be Friday morning, and to be honest I’m still not expecting Pikmin. I don’t know when it will finally arrive. I just know that it will be too late. It will always be too late.

The store I bought it from doesn’t generally deal in video games, it’s a tech store more than anything, but they had this game up for significantly cheaper than everywhere else, so I decided to take the gamble. I shouldn’t have expected much from a store named Dixons. One thing I know is that I’m never buying anything from them again. Being out of stock I can understand. But not even telling me what’s going on sucks. Not giving me even an approximate ETA sucks. It’s Pikmin 3 for god’s sake, I need to know these things! Do they truly not understand? There’s a starving planet out there that’s calling out for three little people and their cute plant-creature things, and here I am unable to come to their aid. If millions of little aliens die from starvation before I get there, I’m holding you responsible.

I guess this is the gods of Nintendo punishing me for my insolence of buying Pikmin 3 later and cheaper than I should have. But while I pray to Miyamoto for forgiveness, I shall remain ever Pikmin-less.

And that makes me a sad Bulborb.







A - Lightning has bigger boobs now, Final Fantasy is dead. Just like it was when XIII-2 came out, and XIII, and XIV. Is something we declare 'dead' ever actually dead?

A - DustinThomas likes to take it one game at a time. Which is probably good advice, because I tend to play a little of everything at once.

P - A GoForRainbow podcast, featuring wet men.

A - Jinx does some mythbusting on the costs of PC gaming. Really worth a read, and there's some nice tips in here .

A - We of the Recaps do podcasts sometimes! It's episode 16 of the Fapcast featuring Strider and some other asshole!

A - Having discussed the craziest heroes in DOTA 2, Taterchimp continues with the craziest items!

A - Oh Capcom, what happened to you? T.T









N - XBLIG is nothing if not a well of shitty half-finished 'games'. TheKodu reviews Sexy Island Adventure, a game that is every bit as terrible as it sounds. Fortunately, he doesn't remember any of it.

T - GlowBear is a bear who would steal your grandmother's teeth just to have a Knights of the Old Republic 3 game made. In this blog we get a little insight as to why.

D - PlayBoyMan is making a thing, and has a video on it.

T - When you think about it, Watch_Dogs hits a little too close to home. With everything and everyone being connected nowadays, the game really pushes some paranoia buttons.





? - ...there is a fetish for girls stuck in sand? Seriously, internet?







- ShadeOfLight
May you always find water and shade

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
First Kiss

No matter what the experience was or which game or genre left that strong first impression, such experiences have the potential to open our eyes to the rich history of a series or genre. With any luck, we might find even more to love or something better. A great first experience with RPGs could lead to an undying love affair.

Sometimes a first kiss can be so impactful that the game gets placed on a pedestal and enshrined as a gold standard, which has its own pros and cons. I mean, it is nice to have a basis for comparison, but some folks take it too far. There are people who loved Half-Life, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, or Final Fantasy VII so much that nothing after them really got a fair shake.

So first impressions matter -- they can shape and inform our gaming habits. I grew up on arcades, Nintendo, handhelds, and eventually into RPGs, so much of what I play will be influenced by how I acquired my tastes. I probably like Overwatch a ton because it has a passion for RPG roles, but contextualizes them closer to older shooters focused on objectives more than gear builds and grinding out perks for better killstreaks.

So for this month's Bloggers Wanted, we'd like you head over to the community blogs write about your first kiss, the games that positively influenced you or maybe biased you a little too much for a time. What turned you on to a series or genre? Was it love at first sight? Did it set any expectations in stone or possibly lead you to something better?

Whatever the case might be, remember to use the title "First kiss" and place "Bloggers Wanted" in the tags!
