Forums, we have them: October 2010

3:00 PM on 10.07.2010 // Zodiac Eclipse

This month in the forums, people mock collectors editions with vegetables (or are they fruit?), manly men flaunt their beards, the Cinema opens for movie ratings and discussion, and sometimes we talk about games.

It was a bit of a slow month actually, what with PAX fever taking up the majority of the first few weeks, then consars immediately following. Still, if you haven't been to the forums lately, here's what you've been missing. 

When Jim Sterling used his copy of Halo: Reach to display his amazing jar of Ragu, some forum folks decided they wanted in on the fun. Thus the Tomato Products on Collectors Editions thread was born.

The great Septembeard challenge has wrapped up and everyone is feeling supremely manly and unshaven after their involvement.

Cartoon God, Mikey visited the Golden Gate Bridge in San Franciso, but found it lacking. This prompted our first, but not last, sighting of Sad Mikey. (Cheer up kid, you're internet famous now).

It's a well known fact that forum members are better people, but it turns out we're also creative people. This month the Creativity Thread showcased some of the diverse talent of a handful of forum goers. Definitely worth checking out if you're a fan of that artsy fartsy stuff.

Speaking of the forums being better people, another wave of Legendary Dtoider Badges went through. Congrats to all the new folks who are proudly wearing the fruity unicorns.

Our new buddy Chuck Bittner, the quadriplegic gamer, stopped by and told us all about his petition to make console game buttons customizable and therefore more accessible. The man plays video games with his face, the least you can do is sign his petition so he can remap the buttons before he hurts himself.

Movie buffs take note, “The Theater” thread and the “Rate the Last Movie you Saw” thread have been merged into The Cinema for all your film discussion and rating needs.

The Let's Hope There's a Heaven movie podcast finally had a proper launch and was welcomed with a new badge.

- LHTAH badge.

The Alcoholocast is also a thing that happened. I think it's something to do with Jewish Beer, but I'm not entirely certain.

Over in our Games Discussion section (because sometimes we remember that we're a gaming site) we started speculating why this month was going to be an amazing time for RPG fans. Some people like Scrabble and we contemplate how to make games based on movies not suck.

Apparently, football is a thing that is happening and people like to talk about it. If you like to talk about it you should head to the College Football thread and make a nuisance of yourself.

Finally, with the Halloween season in full swing the zombie loving hordes of the forum are all worked up for The Walking Dead TV series. Check it out and find out how you can better prepare for your inevitable fate when the zombie apocalypse begins.

As far as I know that about wraps up the forum recap for this month. Be sure to call me a liar and point out all the awesome things I missed in the comment section below. Thanks as always to my lovely forum team for helping me keep the duct tape in place for yet another month before the new forums come and make all our lives better, and more sexy.

Boy howdy, does Divinity: Original Sin take a while to get going. But, it was worth it in the end. Probably the most hardcore RPG I've played. Stellar writing, at that! Combat's pretty amazing too. [img][/img]

So it seems I've locked into the Neutral ending for SMT IV and now I need to find specific challenge quests and complete them...? How (un)fun! Google is your friend - the videogame.

Interested in playing some Pathfinder? Trying to arrange a Dtoid Pathfinder group for Saturday nights (GMT) on Skype & Roll 20. If you're new to pen-and-paper RPGs, I don't mind at all and can bring you up to speed quick. Just comment if interested.

Local convention had a great selection of game soundtracks 5 for $20! I got Halo 3: ODST (2 disk!), Gears of War 2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Darksiders 2 (2 disk!), and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Some of the best soundtracks of the last 7 years!

Photos and videos are back on quickposts but clipping on some devices. We're going to add a new quickpost editing interface so photos and videos can only be displayed one way (a la twitter) to solve this. Also, a My cBlog link was added to your user menu

Machine-washed my Wii Fit meter yesterday by accident. Took the battery out and let it dry for the night. Luckily the meter still worked - but it had counted a fair number of steps more that day.

After reading a blog post about DMC4 I decided to watch all the cutscenes on Youtube. Tried the games years ago and couldn't get into them, but man that shit was stylish. Likeable protagonists, intense drama... still think DmC reboot wasn't that bad tho.

Just a reminder that you have until the 30th to get your Bloggers Wanted post, "Thankful it's over" in. I'm either going to tell you how I ruined my best online gaming experience or rip Twilight Princess a new one. Maybe both.

Huh. I just found out the developers of Hatred (remember that controversy?) region-locked their game to prevent it from being accessed by Australians. Destructive Creations are more censor-happy than Nintendo, it seems. Where's the outrage?
Oh yeah, I have an account on this site.

Ever wanted to get that item behind that safe in the beginning of Fallout 4?:

Got Resident Evil 4 Wii for $5. Uh ... this might be my favorite version. I'm just getting headshots nonstop. Did I miss any other Wii games that are frequently overlooked? Like, really obscure Wii games that no one talks about? I'm interested.

Update: played through Hyper Dimension Neptunia Rebirth, reminded why I don't like the series, and requested a refund on it and its sequel. Not sure if they'll refund the sequel, but if they honor at least the first, I'll use that money to get Undertale.

I hope the new Star Wars movie answers the biggest question I have about the franchise; do Midi-Chlorians poop?
