Hey all, once more the recap teams looking for new full time full blown recappers as well as possibly some reservists. Toss a comment below if you're interested.

 
 

I swear the recap will be out next week. Picture very much related.


 
 

The Reservist Shed's impromptu Arts and Crafts Club only lasted a single session. For legal reasons, I'm only allowed to show one result of the first-and-only club meeting. We've been bleaching one closet for the past three weeks.


 
 

I am your new Sunday recaps overlord. Bow before my might. In about an hour.

 
 

Thanks for all the blogs to recap this Valentine's Day, keyboard peons. Gonna take advantage of your unseemly sloth to chillax with some Apple Jacks.

 
 

Fiddlesticks! Someone forgot to lock the shed and one of our reservists almost escaped. Good thing we captured him before more damage was done, and now he is once again safely locked in our underground deep-fryogenic containment cell.

 
 

The Recap team might soon be in need of sweet blood, fresh blood, new blood to fill our halls. If you're potentially interested in being a recapper why not inquire below? Why not inquire below? Why not inquire below?

 
 

Come my children. Read my latest (hasty and poorly structured) musings. Contemplate existence. Resent being born. Mourn the fragility of experience.

 
 

The grandeur of the Recap team anew accepts fresh Reservist recruitment. Learn, and know, and gain, in today's Recap, or comment/message this account as you will. The wind *will* blow. Glory to Recapkind.

 
 

No Sunday recap today. Found out someone in the reservist shed was experimenting with funguses and they've become semi-sentient (imagine like a crying new born child), so we're burning it out. Also, Rio has a pretty bad cold.


 
 

It's dangerous to go alone! Take this.


 
 
 

The live action of Animorphs looks weird.


 
 

The Reservist Shed found a way to make cats portable, but we're still not sure where the cat came from.


 
 

The Reservist Shed's latest attempt to sleep through the perpetual screaming failed.


 
 

It kinda of smells like fried pastry here


 
 

Good morning East coast. Mars says hello.


 
 

Today's recap isn't brought to you by Paradigm, but it is still a pretty neat little game that swooped under the radar. I'd say it is Reservist Shed approved, but I don't think they approve of much besides the abuse of the scientific laws as we know it.


 
 

Attention folks. There has been a catastrophe in the Reservist shed. Body parts and fluids are everywhere but our best janitor, Gamemaniac, is cleaning it with his tongue. We gave him a mop but he said he was hungry. Weirdo. Crisis is contained. Carry on.

 
 

I forgot to add Wes' contest to the newest Cblog Recap! (Now rectified) You can have a digital building named after you in the new game Symmetry!!! (Link in comments)

 
 
 

No recap today, I'm choosing life.


 
 

Some really handsome bald fellow posted the answers to his very first AMA last night. (link in the comments)

 
 
 
 

The Reservist Shed has apparently been barred from the nearby car rental shop.

 
 

Last year, 15 blogs: le fussed. This year, 15 blogs: Le CRUSHED. Flame, dear children, signs the demarcation 'tween the Chosen, the Ashen...and the Crestfallen, the Cindered. So the blogs might be mended. Umbasa.

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!
