LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 8-21-09 + Old Skool Y0j1mb0isms

   0


Ladies...Gentlemen...it's been far too long since I've done a recap. Have you missed me? It's okay if you didn't, for I have missed you nevertheless. The best job here in Dtoid in my humble opinion is this one right here. Reading all the cblogs you create on a daily basis. Whether they are good, great, amazing or fail, what everybody here has to remember is that without you blogging, Destructoid wouldn't be half of what it is now. You, the community, are the lifeblood that runs through our gaming robotic entity. While recapping last night's blogs I noticed how little there was to recap. Why back in my days of recapping we had quite a bit more.

I'm here to urge everybody to blog. You don't need to be a fantastic writer to blog y'know. All you gotta do is express yourself about whatever strikes your fancy effectively. The stigma of failing shouldn't deter would be closet bloggers because we all eventually fail before we get better. Hell, I've failed more than my share here but it's the pursuit of clarity, of getting my point, my opinion out and be understood, whether right or wrong, that drives me, as it should you.

To those who haven't blogged in awhile, or those who are lurking in the shadows, enjoying this fine site, I ask of you one thing. Blog more. Know that only through your participation will this fraternity called Destructoid grow and flourish even more.

Now let us take a look at what was last night on the cblogs. Spoiler Alert: There were many blogs that were funny, unique, awesome and even some fail. Lets begin with:

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!
