Forums, we have them: November 2011

11:00 PM on 11.14.2011 // Mxyzptlk

Top Row: BadStar, Mix, M47R1X, Byronic Man, Revuhlooshun 
Bottom Row: Gobun, Usedtabe, Jon Bloodspray, JackShadow, ZombiePlatypus 

Big thanks to Revuhlooshun for putting together the collage! 

In this edition of Forums, we have them: Seriously, you need me to synopsize this for you every month? Read the damn thing yourself! 

Halloween has come and gone, and with it comes the annual traditions of tooth decay, drunken debauchery, and (as seen above) dressing up in funny costumes. 

October also saw the return of AMC's The Walking Dead series, and to celebrate Bec made some disturbingly delicious zombie-themed cupcakes inspired by 28 Days Later. Nobody tell her that technically there weren't any zombies in that movie. 

And to complete the zombie triumvirate, Epic-KxDtoid asks which platforming hero could survive a zombie apocalypse? 

What would you give up to play videogames? In my case, finishing this recap is not one of those things. I hope you all appreciate my sacrifice, because I'd really like to be playing Rock of Ages right now. 

M Randy Dixon created this thread for you to fantasize about your ideal date with another Dtoider. Thanks for bringing us one step closer to the dream of a Destructoid community member erotic slash fiction archive! 

TurboKill wants to you to share the shows/movies/music that have reached you emotionally, most likely so he can harvest your human "feelings" to power his Genesis Device. He's tried this sinister plan before, but now I'm on to him. 

It was recently discovered that Jim Sterling is responsible for every traumatic event in the history of the universe. A list of his crimes has been archived so one day future generations may finally be able to contain him and hold him accountable for his dark acts. 

Dexter345 has started up a game of Werewolf (AKA Mafia) on the Forums, leading to an atmosphere of distrust and paranoia amongst the community while trying to deduce the identities of the beasts who hunt in the night. As of this writing we're currently on the second game, so if you want to participate in a future game let Dexter know! Below is an reenactment of events from the first game: 

If you feel the urge to express yourself with a creepy web comic generator and subvert a noble cause, Stop Bullying bitstrips is for you. Unfortunately now that it's been posted on the front page, it's ruined forever. Sorry about that. 

The Liquor Cabinet lets you share your favorite mixed drink recipes with other Dtoiders, and hopefully discover a few new favorites. 

The holiday season is coming up, and that means presents! Your suggestions for the official Destructoid Holiday Gift Guide are requested! 

Technically this thread was made after the end of October, but just in case you've missed it the Dtoid Forums Secret Santa thread for 2011 is live. If you want to participate this year, make sure you visit before the end of November! 

That's it for this month! Thanks as always to the Mods, those who contributed to the FWHT Suggestions thread, and the twelfth-dimensional entity that lives in my head and controls my actions. Tune in next month when Zodiac will explain why existence as we know it is a complete lie.

I'm currently writing a review for a mobile game, but only because I'm enjoying the hell out it. I'm honestly enjoying it far more than Puzzles and Dragons.

Steam sale is on. Just buying one game with this new format. Mad Max or Shadow of Mordor?

Damn, I think I'm Bruce Willis from Unbreakable. Just fell of a 12-foot ladder and all I got was a little scratch on my finger.

After I finish Fallout 4 I'm thinking of 100%ing Skyrim and then installing a TON of dinosaur mods on it.

4 hours into Hotline Miami 2 and I'm finding it just as fun as the original. So far it's a good balance between frustration and satisfaction. Still have no idea what the story is about.

1. Start playing Ocarina of Time again. 2. Start having fun. 3. Discover fishing area. 4. Stop having fun.

A 2-d hovercraft platforming exploration game just came out today. Have fun collecting the coins! My record so far is 140.

Holy shit the new David Bowie video/song is just lovely.

So many people angry at Play-Asia right now. Totally not exactly the kind of backlash Tecmo were trying to avoid by not releasing the game here in the first place.

If you're a UK kid there's a Wii U 32 GB Wind Waker Premium Pack on Amazon for £240. It says sale... I dunno how much of a saving that is. You tell me.

Community Question: Not strictly speaking video game-related, but screw it. Team Captain America or Team Iron Man?

I want Just Cause 2 and Metal Gear Solid V + Peace Walker to fornicate together so we can have a beautiful big open world to blow up and/or fulton. Then I want to build an infinitely-sized base of soldiers, each with their own personalities and stats.

When SFV drops next year we gotta get some DTOID noob battles on, practice with online lag with friends, be really bad casuals together. We can call it Kanye Night Fights. #Swerve on FNF (just kidding...maybe).

So someone messaged me on a Lightning fast, comment board that bow they're super depressed. And I worry for them now. Because a comment board is not something to get depressed over, just because someone disagrees with you if your an ass, people will be 2.

Guys, a sequel to Retro City Rampage: Shakedown Hawaii! Someone should really write about it. Lots of Dtoid staff were in the RCR after all.
FlanxLycanth avatarFlanxLycanth
Fuck racism man, shit ain't fair. Can't stand it and I shouldn't have to. Nobody should.

Embedded pictures in Quickposts seem to be broken for me right now.

To my surprise, I've more or less figured out Rodea Wii U controls. Still a different game from the Wii version, but not as decidedly inferior in my eyes. Did the legacy medals do anything in Wii version?

"Am I a kid, or a squid?" I ponder as I stare off into the horizon. A wise man once told me "Son, you can be whatever you want to be. You are only limited by your lack of ambition " And I want to be a squid. A squid now.
