Forums, we have them: May 2010

1:00 PM on 05.05.2010 // Mxyzptlk

[Forums, we have them, is a monthly series where we look at all the going-ons in the Destructoid Forums.]

This past month, Bro-mania infected the forums, Zodiac Eclipse went mad with power, community members got some props in the Dtoid Comic, a new moderator appears, and other things happened.

What were these mysterious "other things"? Why I thought you'd never ask!

As can be seen above, CTZ discovered you do not mess around with Zodiac when it comes to badges, for she is subtle and quick to anger. The thread doesn't have quite the impact it originally did since everything has been pretty much restored to normal, with one exception: Zodiac now wields the mighty Admin badge, and deservedly so. I can't even begin to describe what an enormous help she's been to me with the Forums over the last two months. So I won't.

The most brotastic craze in the history of the Brorums came out of nowhere (bro-where?), uniting all bros together in the name of brodum. If that last sentence gave you the urge to punch me in the face, I don't blame you in the slightest. In honor of this brosomeness, a Traveling Brournal is being mailed around to various bros so each can contribute a drawing. Details on how to participate and scans can be found in the thread!

Of course there's a bro-related badge coming in the near future, just in time for it to hit old meme status. If you happen to be getting together IRL with other Dtoiders, be sure to take a picture of any spontaneous brofists that are certain to occur. This will be useful very soon. So please stop asking about it!

In case you missed it the last installment of the Destructoid Comic featured the introduction of Technophile's squad of ultimate badasses, Broforce: Solgrim, Sam Spectre, Serpentish, and Poopface Morty. What will the future hold for our heroes? That is for you to decide!

While we're on the topic, the Destructoid Comic finally received a long overdue badge of its own:

This is given to those who have had their actual likeness featured in the comic. Before you ask, avatar cameos don't count! Mikey gets the final say on who is awarded the badge, just so there's no confusion.

Gobun and Gyreal's ridiculous bromance/rivalry has brought laughs to many and single-handly doubled the sales of Mind Bleach this past month. Here are some of the Forum Adventures highlights.

In case you still haven't earned the Four Year Anniversary badge, well you're too late. The window has officially closed, but you're still welcome to share your favorite Destructoid memories!

The Bar thread remains one of the most active threads on the forums, and recently hit its 75000th post!

Gyrael hit the 10,000 post mark, making him the only forum member besides Poopface Morty to reach this milestone. Congratulations to both of them on having way too much free time!

Ali D is already so awesome he inspired the Random Act of Kindness badge, but his contributions to the Forums over the years led us to feel he was a great choice to be a Moderator. So tell him congratulations if you haven't already!

I wanted to take a moment to spotlight a few of the unofficial community-driven podcasts you may or may not be aware of. Podsumaki is dedicated to fighting games, Sega Addicts caters to those addicted to Sega, and 321gocast is pretty much about everything and nothing at the same time. Give them each a listen when you have a chance! Speaking of 321gocast, they were recently granted their own Forum badge:

Wish your community podcast had its own badge? Continue to record and release episodes, and before long you'll qualify!

Were you aware that May is Zombie Awareness Month? Not only is it a good time to get your survival plan in order, but you should also check out the Zombie thread for helpful advice on how to survive the looming apocalypse and discussion of the living dead.

To celebrate the release of Super Street Fighter IV, Solgrim was kind enough to give the Friday Night Fight badge a Dudley-inspired update:

Finally, thanks as always to Zodiac, IcarusKills, and Ali D for their help keeping the Forums under control, and to Hamza for being Hamza. Also, congrats to Anthony and Ashley!

Anything I missed, or more likely left out due to this being way too long already? Feel free to mention it in the comments!

I don't think it will happen, but if the NX is turns out to be a VR device, I will be the saddest boy in the milky way.

There's something so fucking delicious about a toasted Hawaiian roll, smoked ham, Swiss, some spinach and a dollop of mustard. #FatKidPosts
Still in work clothes.

Just finished watching The Phantom Menace. Yeah, Jar Jar is as bad as people say. Baby Vader is so cute and also kicks some serious ass. One of the best lightsaber battles of the series, if not the best one. It was pretty neat!

Can't decide where I should upload my latest project. Either on my YouTube Channel or on Game Anyone. On the one hand YouTube gets more exposure, but Game Anyone is where some of my more popular walkthroughs are. The game is 3D Land if anyone is wondering

Anyone know if the Bethesda games on sale on Amazon for a certain amount of time, or through Monday?

In light of the fact that Xenoblade Chronicles X is fast approaching, I suggest we start planning out a Destructoid Squad! NNID is TysonOfTime. From what I've heard, it doesn't appear Squads are region locked (except for Japan), so everyone's welcome!

Listening to this on a Tall Oaks level of RE: Revelations 2's Raid Mode is entrancing, for some reason.

Need a reason to support Indivisible? Shantae is in it!. Back it or spread the word, every bit of help counts.

Sometimes I miss how hilariously janky Brawl was, and I still have a lot of fun playing it. Not sure if I could ever take it seriously as a competitive game, but I want to enter at least one Brawl tournament in the future. You know, if I can find one.

I love how on a slow news day I can always turn to Qposts for something else to read and think about. Keep up the mojo fellas!

I finally caved in to those sweet deals, got Shantae and The Pirate's Curse, Downwell and Super House of Dead Ninjas :)

I hope that Prototype runs better on my dad's old laptop than it does on my AMD gaming rig. Some badly coded games run like ass on AMD cards.

Please spare me from issues in the process of publishing my blog! Especially since I modified CSS to unnecessarily pseudo-crop an image, and make it so some images float next to text, and make it look decent on mobile. I'm a frickin' nerd, love it.

The night brims with defiled scum, and is permeated by their rotten stench. Just think, now you're all set to hunt and kill to your heart's content! #FashionBorne [img][/img]

Two more days to get in on the unofficial Christmas Card! [Url][/URL]
Solar Pony Django avatarSolar Pony Django has got a mystery sale on T Shirts and Tank Tops atm, $5 for each. Only catch is they're random. But I've had some good luck, got a Captain Falcon one before, Zombies ate my Neighbors and a Persona 4 X Earthbound crossover.
