Forums, we have them: December edition

1:10 PM on 12.01.2009 // Technophile

Welcome to the December edition of Forums, we have them. Otherwise known as "There are far too many games out now" edition. It's now officially the holidays but that hasn't stopped us over in Forum land.

I've got all sorts of things in store for December, some of which I will talk about in this article. I'm also going to recap what has gone down in the Forums in November (but that was so last month, psssh). So hold on tight and grow a beard as we do this thing!

As always, we had some more badge updates and they are some pretty tricky ones.

The Beedog badge of approval - Ah, Geraldo Beedog. That winged personification of JOURNALISM has gotten his own badge. How do you get it? Well, it's a secret to everybody. Be awesome and Señor Beedog may award you with this badge of his likeness.

The Legendary thread badge - This badge is awarded to those who start a truly legendary thread. Threads that will live on forever in the long history of the Forums. Specifically, in order to be legendary a thread has to reach over 1000 pages. Don't bother trying to get this badge. Spamming isn't cool.

The Dtoid Beard badge - We love beards here at Destructoid. Beards are pretty awesome. So this badge recognizes those who have a beard. Here are the Official rules from legendary beard owner Y0j1mb0 who also graces the badge with his visage. You can post your pictures in either a PM to me or in the Pictures thread.

So that covers some of the things added to the Forums in November.

December is going to be an exciting month for the Forums. I plan on doing an overhaul of the skins. Some design tweaks and such. Additionally, I'll be looking at some pre-made skins that may look good. They are easy to install and as always they will be optional.

In addition to that, I plan on making greater use of the sub-forums feature. The front of the Forum will remain the same for the most part but I plan on dividing out some of the sections so there isn't as much overlap and so it's easier to figure out where you should post stuff. If you want to see a first draft of this, please see this post. Keep in mind that is a first draft and suggestions are welcome.

I also plan on getting us a badge mod for the Forum as well. While the round badges have served us well I think I can do someone more creative with them as well as giving people more options as to how they are displayed. Getting a badge mod will help with the display part, but I think a whole art re-design is in order as well. Please see this page for an idea of where we are headed with that and feel free to submit your own designs.

Well, that's about it for this month. I'll see you guys in 2010.

As always, if you lurk, sign up and post. If you've never been, come check us out. If you post all the time, then keep it up! My private messages are always open and you can send me anything from questions, new banners or just bounce some ideas off me. Don't be shy!

I recently beat Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow again, but this time I played on Hard mode from scratch. Outside of dying a few times due to me being an idiot, and enemies hitting harder, it was actually easy. Like really easy.

Today I replated bacteria that I made take up a plamid hopefully stitched onto the genes generatlight. Taken from other dead bacteria and put into a non glowing species, to make it glow. Fucking microbiology is the best.

It seems fairy farts are a fragrance, a soap, incense, a vaping liquid and a kind of nail polish. I'm clearly in the wrong line of work and need to eat more chili.

"You gave the Lost Soul a big smile, like you remember she likes to do... For some reason she sort of wants to smile back..." I'm not crying. Not one bit.

Just tried 'The Last Of Us' on PSNow Trial, only to be told... 'Something went wrong. Try again.' Game-appropriate error message or quickie plot-summary?

I hate when people say crap like "I admit that [thing] in games is problematic, but I still enjoy it" because it's an underhanded way of contradicting your own views while convincing yourself that you aren't a hypocrite.

Well shit. I knew I was more than likely going to enjoy Star Wars Battlefront (cause you know, giant Star Wars nerd and all) but holy cow, the beta is fucking great! I need the full game like, now.

Yay, I got off of work early and may have Friday off! I have a sinking feeling I'm going to work 10 hours on Saturday as a result, though :/ We ran out of stuff to make stuff with so they must ship us stuff so we can ship stuff.

I have now played all 3 Witcher games. My verdict: Witcher 1 - alright, aged badly, lots of sex. Witcher 2 - good, very short, not much sex at all. Witcher 3 - Excellent in every way.

I really wish MGO had been implemented with free-roam gameplay PMC (clan) setup instead of the standard matchmaking. Imagine roaming bands of PMC's opposing each other on the battlefield. How sexy would that be?
