10 things you didn't know about practically everyone

An archive you'll want to bookmark

[Dtoid community blogger Morty compiled every 10 Things blog he could find into one handy place. What a guy! --Mr Andy Dixon]

Hello, my fellow Dtoidians. If you're like me, then you love to read the more personal blogs about our awesome Destructoid community members. There are, for example, the introduction blogs a lot of members write before tackling other topics concerning gaming and such. And there are the Community Interviews that are graciously hosted by handsome and eloquent members Everyday Legend and Opiumherz.

And then there are the 10 Things blogs, of course. Compact lists of random facts written by users about themselves. Sometimes deep and sad, often funny, always pretty interesting and insightful.

Since its inception there have been three major surges of 10 Things (and one straggler), the latest of which started just this May after Conor Elsea kickstarted it again and Andy Dixon posted a Community Assignment about it.

And this time around I finally took it upon myself to compile a list with (nearly) all 10 Things blogs that were ever written on Destructoid. Over 200 posts were done by community members over the years and even some (ex) staff members joined in on the fun. Anyone wanna publish a book?

Some older posts have broken pictures, and all of the legacy comments have vanished, but all in all this is a pretty solid collection of the 10 Things blog trend that was started by SilverDragon1979 in 2009.

Playing New Vegas again because reasons, it occurs to me that it'd be nice if Old World Blues gave me the option to move the Brotherhood of Steel to the Big MT instead of wiping them out for Mr. House.

Near heart attack as for a minute it seemed like the A button of my 3DS was busted. It's fine now though, I think we'll live.

There's now a £4/$5 Raspberry Pi. So cheap it's a cover extra on the latest Mag Pi. Based on the original chipset, it's single core but clocked at 1Ghz so it's quite a bit faster and oh so tiny. I can't wait to see what folks build with it.

After a lifetime of not spending a single cent on FTP games, I finally broke and dropped €1 in the Nintendo Badge Arcade. I just had to have all the Luigi badges asap. I feel dirty. Plus side, my 3ds will be covered in Luigi.

Umm.. no Microsoft. Where is the 'go away' button? [img][/img]

I tried driving as Uber last night to start supplementing my income and everyone so far has been super chill. Also, I started practicing in my sleepy small home city so the training wheels were still on. No big city bar hoppers just yet.

Just got my Gwent physical edition. I don't understand special abilities - for example, Arachas have an icon with two knights beneath the close combat icon. Avallac'h has an eye in that same spot. Help? (I'm no longer a squid btw)

Happy Thanksgiving all! Load up on carbs and then get back to playing Fallout 4.

I dunno if I just had a freak incident but I think Ubisoft may have just changed the Renown gain in Rainbow Six Siege to be less shit as in overnight they've patched it. If true, kinda good on them.

Does it mess with anyone else's head that when beating a SMBW level in Mario Maker the music doesn't do that little 'booowoo oop' at the end. [youtube][/youtube]

I've developed a new hobby to indulge in while on Skype with friends: creating stupid Sonic OCs. I have so much fun making them for some weird reason, and once I have enough of them I might as well post a c-blog of them, am I right? Look out in the future

Boy howdy, does Divinity: Original Sin take a while to get going. But, it was worth it in the end. Probably the most hardcore RPG I've played. Stellar writing, at that! Combat's pretty amazing too. [img][/img]

So it seems I've locked into the Neutral ending for SMT IV and now I need to find specific challenge quests and complete them...? How (un)fun! Google is your friend - the videogame.

Interested in playing some Pathfinder? Trying to arrange a Dtoid Pathfinder group for Saturday nights (GMT) on Skype & Roll 20. If you're new to pen-and-paper RPGs, I don't mind at all and can bring you up to speed quick. Just comment if interested.

Local convention had a great selection of game soundtracks 5 for $20! I got Halo 3: ODST (2 disk!), Gears of War 2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Darksiders 2 (2 disk!), and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Some of the best soundtracks of the last 7 years!

Photos and videos are back on quickposts but clipping on some devices. We're going to add a new quickpost editing interface so photos and videos can only be displayed one way (a la twitter) to solve this. Also, a My cBlog link was added to your user menu

Machine-washed my Wii Fit meter yesterday by accident. Took the battery out and let it dry for the night. Luckily the meter still worked - but it had counted a fair number of steps more that day.
