LONG BLOG

The last Cblogs of 12/19 and Striderisms?

   0




First, sorry about the delays on the mysterious episode 8 of the Fapcast. It's the Christmas week countdown, what did you expect? I'm busy! In fact, I guess it's a requirement that Recappers be busy. How often do you see Wrench blog on his actual blog? Or Smurf? Or bbain? Or Phil? (Well, I think Phil's internet is down, so he has an excuse.)

Case in point, I haven't blogged in a while. I mean, actually blogged. Thank god for being a recapper and obligations. Speaking of which, we touch on it on the Fapcast but I might as well mention now in case I'm super late in getting it out: We're looking for a new Recapper.

In a super-secret correspondence that will be public as soon as I publish Fapcast 8 (HA!), ManChild has put himself on hiatus for unspecified but assumably personal reasons. So that means we need a Recapper as long as ManChild is down for the count and by Recapper, we mean someone with guaranteed availability. You're not gonna be a Reservist. You're gonna shoot straight to regular Recapper and hit the ground into a bloody skid mark. So what do we need? Just your time and availability and that's about it. Recapping is a relatively low commitment deal. You just need to be sure you set aside a portion of your night to read through your day's blogs, get the gist of them, share them, and put your thoughts down if you have any. It takes most of us about one or two hours depending on the volume of blogs on what you want to put into your isms or gasms.

So if you're interested, PM your nearest Recapper with your expressed interest. Me (StriderHoang) and ScottyG mention ourselves in the Fapcast, but if you want, you can also PM whoever's actively Recapping the day you think of it like Wrench, bbain, or Smurf for example. Tell us you're interested, and we'll run your name through our complicated machine that will determine whether or not we'll take you on. It's called, a hat. We'll put your name on a scrap of paper, put it in, shake it around, and pick one out at random. TECHNOLOGY!

Meanwhile, on the front of my new 3DS, I've finally managed to get my hands on proper 3DS software. I just downloaded 3d Adventures: Kirby's Adventure, which takes your basic Kirby formula and makes a pretty box of it, and Crashmo, sequel to Pushmo.

I've always heard good things of Pushmo, but never knew that when people talked of it that it was a 3DS downloadable. But now I know that it's a great puzzle game. Pull, slide, and push towers of blocks in an attempt to get to the top. But things aren't always as they seem as you tackle the tower. Blocks will fall, gadgets will introduce weird paths, and puzzles can stop cold with the wrong drops. But it's all in a shiny, colorful package topped off with a cute little sumo dude. And come Saturday, I'll let my girlfriend give the game a shot since we all know she's a puzzle fanatic.

So we all know Ace Attorney 5 is a thing and that it'll be a 3DS game (thank god). I know I'm all over that stuff, but what else should I get? I'm a year behind this 3DS stuff, so I don't know where to begin. Mario 3D Land? Mario Kart 7? Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D? I'm getting Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition off a trade on the forums and Ocarina of Time 3D for Christmas but is there anything else I should know about?

Seriously, I love getting tags for my Mii Plaza and catching up on my Find Mii hat collecting but I gotta actually, you know, play games on my 3DS.

Also, don't visit terriblefate.com. No seriously. You will begin to believe if you visit it.

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!
