Forums, we have them: November 2011

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 A list of his crimes has been archived so one day future generations may finally be able to contain him and hold him accountable for his dark acts.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.

People can debate GOTY all they want, but the real question is: D-Horse or Roach?

I'm dragging myself away from my PS4 long enough to say that MGS V is pretty darn awesome so far.

Down with that PAX Pox. Auhhhghghghhhh

MGSV: Sneaking into a heavily guarded Russian military base in Afghanistan at night, slashing throats while listening to this. [youtube][/youtube] Comes off like a perfectly planned scene in a Scorsese movie or something.

Tortilla chips: The only food I know and love to betray me by deciding to flip to a bad angle and stab me in the gums.

I'm ok with Namco shutting down Soul Calibur: Lost Souls, as long as they keep Ace Combat:Infinity running. Love that game and just hit 3 million credits.
ScreamAid avatarScreamAid
Holy fuck I feel new again. I've been on hiatus for a while and haven't been up to writing. I might just jump back into things after I relearn things here. Does anyone even remember me? Like damn it's been a while.

In MGS5: The Phantom Pain, Solid Snake dies from lung cancer from all those years of smoking. #FakeSpoilers

[youtube][/youtube] If you don't know the truth, you don't know the score. The end is coming near. MAJOR SPOILERS!

Wow, it's really easy to get people upset over video games.

I hope MGS V is living up to everyone's expectations. I can't get enough.

I dislike the idea of intentionally reinforcing the notions that either race or gender are character traits, and those that don't match your own are completely unrelatable.

Who's your favorite female black writer on Destructoid's staff? Post a comment below with your votes.

I'm ok if someone chooses a character's ethnicity in a story with the intent of being more representative, as long as the story is good. And if even SOME people feel like it helps them relate, then good! Don't bother me none.
ChillyBilly avatarChillyBilly
OK. So the Mad Max game is basically the combat from the Batman games, the driving bits from Rage and the taking over the outposts bits from Far Cry 3 and 4. I guess what I'm saying is that it's super fun and I'm really, really enjoying it.

@Jed Whitaker I might be missing something, but does the race of the characters really matter? I'm white and if every VG character was black I wouldn't care. It's skin color... that's it. I guess others care more than me about this stuff though.

Who is your favorite Jewish game character? I'm pretty sure BJ Blaskowicz is (right?), so I'm going with him.

Interview tomorrow! Little apprehensive, I really want this job. Working with adults and children with learning disabilities, perfect experience and a worthwhile job. We'll see how it goes! :D

Being in the hospital Fucking blows.

Who is your favorite black Super Smash Bros. character out of the roster of over 50 characters? Oh wait... Game and Watch doesn't count.
