Forums, we have them: July 2011

In this episode of Forums, we have them, E3 fever sweeps the forums, NARPs totally happen, a whole slew of new official game threads arrive and the Game Master is born. Also, check out the totally awesome van ivr56 created in APB. Stuff like this makes me wish I cared about that game at all.

The Forums Badge List is finally getting the respect it deserves and has been updated and stickied as it's very own thread in the All About Destructoid section of the Forums. Swing by and see if you have any badges you've earned that need to be claimed in the Request Thread

Of course it would have been irresponsible of us to update the list without sneaking something shiny and new in there to tempt our lovely bottom dwellers. Introducing the highly coveted Game Master Badge:



Special thanks goes to Gatsby, of all people, for coming up with this badge.

Want to lay your paws on this beauty? All you have to do is complete and add 25 games to the 2011 Completed Games Thread. Only games documented in the completed games thread for each year count and each game only counts once per year, regardless of how many times I've played Mass Effect this month, for example.

Speaking of games, because occasionally we remember that this is a gaming site, if you need something to play you should check out the Official Games Threads section. We've got new threads for:

Needless to say we've got something for everyone so stop by and take a look.

Oh yeah, a little thing called E3 also happened this month. You might have heard of it, if not hop over to the E3 Special Forum of Doom and get caught up on all the wacky antics of your favorite game developers. Have some strong feelings you need to get off your chest? We've got the E3 2011 reactions Thread where you can share your cheers and fears.

The Dtoid Midwest NARP finally happened. You can check out some pictures here.

Not to be outdone, some of the Dtoid Europe kids got together and constructed a massive gut clenching group Double Down. This feat earned them the respect of their peers and the Double Down Badge. Nice work guys, hope you've all recovered by now.

Got some plans you wanna brag about for this summer? Come by The Summer Plans Thread and tell Changston all about them.

While I've got you here perhaps you care to settle a little debate going on in the Forums this month. Seems some folks find toe socks to be superior to regular socks. This will not do so please go vote for great justice.

Meanwhile, our good friend Back Breaker finally made a thread that we didn't have to automatically lock. Rejoice and get your photo editing software ready for the Fake video game covers Thread.

Like free games? Who doesn't? Now thanks to Ckarasu you can win some in his contest. All you have to do is play and review some games to amuse him and you could win your choice of a nice selection of games. The guy has good taste so it's really worth looking into. Contest is open until August 15th.

Ever been to Japan? Know what you'd wanna buy if you did go? Help Dtoider Perri figure out what to buy when he goes next month.

Also this month, my birthday happened. Yeah I get that this is only a big deal to me, but I'm totally using it as an excuse to post a picture of the most awesome cake ever. Thanks for finding this for me ZombiePlatypus.



That's all the time and content we have for this month's Forums, we have them. Special thanks to the Forum community for being rad and to my homeboys Mxy and Ali D for keeping it real. Tune in next month when we'll do some trajectory calibrations and bake a pie.

FFXV is supposedly 10x as big as The Witcher 3. Wow ... [img]http://i.imgur.com/9tfSuxQ.png[/img] http://www.dualshockers.com/2015/09/01/final-fantasy-xv-map-size-potentially-revealed-its-roughly-an-enormous-780-square-miles/

The ending of "Return to Crookback Bog" in TW3 I got was so depressing. Wow. I think I need a break...

I'm sitting here play Metal Gear V, absolutely loving it. But in the back of my mind ... all I can think about is Mario Maker. I'm really excited for that game!

Sold a digital item on Steam, that came with a physical item, for more than the cost of the physical item. This is the second time I've done this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Everyone right now is playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. And here I am, waiting for Super Mario Maker to come out. And also Star Fox Zero.

Patrick Hancock hates babies. Rick and Morty.... I wish I could view thee second season. I need to play MGSV. I spray farted earlier.
IDrawOnTape avatarIDrawOnTape
my wife and i got into Rick and Morty the same time we got into Gravity Falls. Man, some good cartoons out right now.
El Dango avatarEl Dango
Rick and Morty is like reverse Archer. Instead of everyone being insanely quick-witted, everyone stutters, pauses and repeats themselves a lot.

Drew a preeeeeeety sweet thing for the August edition of Cblog Recaps. Keep an eye out for it!

No spoilers or anything, but the MGS V troll is amazing. I went from concerned to laughter in a matter of minutes.

Not saying that the "augment your pre-order" announcement caused me to fall ill, but the timing seems like too much of a coincidence.

Stealth in Payday 2 gets infinitely easier once you get the Control Freak perk.

Why is there a 500mb day 1 update for mgs V?! Yay modern day video games.

What would you say are the worst/dumbest/stupidest/most useless job or class in an RPG?
Mike Wallace avatarMike Wallace
Could you stop calling Metal Gear Solid V Kojima's "swan song?" He's not retired, for crying out loud.

Seems rather excessive for a 3ds game. (3ds xl for scale) [img]http://i.imgur.com/DwOtP0s.jpg?1[/img]

Tried the stealth approach for awhile, time to switch things up. *plants C4 everywhere* I'll probably toss one on the poor schmuck that delivers my copy of MGS V. For taking so long.

Just a quick update for folks. Phil/Mike Martin is off the streets and safe for the next month. Thanks to everyone who helped out. You can keep up to on the forums: http://www.outerheavenforums.com/showthread.php?41974-The-Save-a-Phil-Foundation
