About
This is the part where I say something about myself. You can read it if you want to.

I still remember the first time I went to Destructoid. When one of the very first articles that greeted me was something about an erotic Minecraft tribute to a certain someone, I knew right away that this was the kind of gaming community that I would proudly associate myself with.

After about a year of lurking, I finally joined the community a few weeks before E3 2013 because I thought it would be cool to make cheeky jokes about the Xbox One. Now, I'm still here, making dumb comments and posting fan art whenever I feel like it.

I enjoy weird-ass Japanese games like Ace Attorney, Bayonetta and Yakuza. My favourite genre in the videoed games are the games where you're playing a role in the game you're playing and numbers come out when you hit the guy on the screen. I also like those games where you have a guy with a sword and you run around and it's super hard and you feel bad about yourself because you die all the time.

I dislike military first-person shooters and shooters in general mostly because I suck at them. I hardly play online multiplayer games because I'm shy. My favourite Pokémon is Minccino because look at this animated sprite:
My other interests include traditional art, graphic design, 2D animation, wrestling, Harry Potter and giant robots. I like pizza, noodles, ice cream and you.

Long overdue blog post...

So last month, some guy took us back to a time where people here would do cool stuff like make trading cards for other community members. Not long after he shared his story, some other guy got interested in bringing it back and made a forum thread about it. The bored little fellow whose blog you're reading right now then decided to make a new template for it as an excuse to play around with Photoshop for a bit. Now, we have a whole bunch of these cards and YOU can make one too!


Here are some examples of what these cards can look like:

You can keep it simple by simply changing the colours and even forgetting some of the other details that should be in the card.

 

You can modify any part of the template.

 

Want to give Mr. Destructoid an eye-patch?

 

Want to animate your card?

 

Want to fill it with dicks?

 

You can do it! Go crazy with your card designs!

 

Do whatever you want!

 

Are you happy now, @Ross?

 

I'm not kidding when I said you could do anything you want with the template.

 

Anything.


We have made 37 of these cards so far! You can view them and all future cards at:

 

(Special thanks to Marche100 for designing a whole bunch of these cards like nobody's business. Thanks Marche! I love you ♡)

 


Oh. I see you've met my friend. Isn't he a nice guy? Do what he says.
Anyway...

Get on it!

(You can open this on GIMP, don't worry)

Text Guide (for those who want to follow it):

*All caps for the Dtoid font. Move descriptions use Myriad Pro. You can replace it with any other plain looking font (Calibri/Arial/Tahoma looks close enough) if you don't have Photoshop. The size for the stroke/outline of the name, weakness, resistance, retreat is 2. Of course you can adjust the font size if it doesn't fit.

Now here's the fun part. Take note that there's one important "rule" for this whole thing, 
YOU CAN'T MAKE A CARD FOR YOURSELF.
please believe in the Dtoid community's ability to write appropriate card information for you and your online personality, and not turn this into an elaborate way to make personal attacks on community members. Please.

Don't know how to use Photoshop/GIMP? Don't want to join the forums? No problem! Use the comments section of this blog to post your card ideas. Write movesets, suggest icons and pictures, then let other people take care of putting it all together. Make cards for anyone! Frontpage commenters, annoying people, staff, anyone who you feel is part of Dtoid.

So far, only me and Marche have done most of the designs for these but anyone can help out on the design work. Just make sure to tell everyone that you plan to work on/are already working on the design for a certain card.

Have fun :)
