Forums, we have them: October 2011

Welcome back my lovelies. It's that time once again where I recap for you all the fascinating forum news and happenings of the past month. We had some creativity, thread derailment and badges, and that's just in the first few paragraphs.

This month in forum land, Victor had the idea that we should have our own game and M47R1X ran with the idea, creating the awesome header image above. In the heat of the forum love fest Mr. Gobbldigook decided to create a Shirt Logo for the forums which will hopefully get made into a thing. I love me some t-shirts. 

SeptemBEARDtoid has finally come to an end. Nihil challenged his fellow manly men of Destructoid not to shave for the whole month of September. The results were a mixed bag of facial hair and scruffy lost dreams. Way to go men.

Not gonna lie, occasionally things get out of hand in the forums, such was the case with the Full COG armor Also transgender Link Pics thread which somehow managed to remain entirely on topic while fully derailing into complete madness.



The Steamtoid Challenges officially kicked off and Shinobi13 is giving away weekly prizes to some lucky winners. Hop over to see what that's all about.

Badges, we have them. This month we showed some love to our bros at Twitch TV by creating two new badges for their awesome shows.

- Also, Talks - Be on an episode of Also, Talks to net this sweet badge.

- MASH TacticS - Game with Jon or Pico during an episode of Mash Tactics to win this one.

Eurogamer is a thing that happened this month. Our Euro community was out in full force earning our new badge.

- Eurogamer- Go to Eurogamer and prove it.

New games came out this month, and with them a slew of official game threads. Stop by and discuss what's hip this month.

So you think the forums are all fun and games do you? Well you'd be mostly right, but on occasion we also like to get serious and that's where the Politics thread comes in handy. Stop by and debate the issues of the day with our more politically minded members.

As you may have noticed, the forums are a bit different than the front page and C Blogs of Destructoid.



Want to join in on all the shenanigans posted above and possibly see your name on the front page? Read Gobun's Blog on how to become a proper forum user. It will walk you through all the trips and traps of joining the forums and taking your first steps towards becoming a better person.

That about wraps up the forums recap for this month. Thanks to everyone who contributed ideas and threads in the FWHT Suggestion Thread. Tune in next month when we see how many cats Mxy can balance on his head while Ali D judges us silently from the backroom. Goodnight everybody!

If I was to play through the NES library, besides being madness, what order do I do it? Alphabetically or Release date-wise? Whats the Dtoid universe think?

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles for the first time in about 107 hours. Got tired of attempting to clear as many sidequests as there were left available. Maybe in NG+...

Woah. I consider myself a nerd and all, but the trophy hunting community is next level. Is there a biopic about the people at the top of these leaderboards? I'd find that very interesting.

I have no idea what this game is about but if this isn't the best goddamn cover art ever, I don't know what is. [url=http://imgur.com/3yw3G8S][img]http://i.imgur.com/3yw3G8S.jpg[/img][/url]

Xenoblade X limited edition on Amaxon now. Will probably sell out very fast like usual. http://m.neogaf.com/showthread.php?t=1103729&page=1

Just got a Vita with a 16GB card for super cheap. What games should I be looking out for?

So the XCX Special Edition was marked as in stock for 20 seconds and I got a copy! I am disproportionately excited considering what it comes with. Hopefully the art book and packaging are high quality. WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Surprise, Xenoblade Chronicles X Special Edition has already sold out on Amazon.

Picked up Valkyria Chronicles for $5 in the Humble Store, figure I'd advertise that for anyone that doesn't have it yet. Sale ends in less than 42 hours after this post yo. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/p/valkyriachronicles_storefront

My copy of National Geographic came today. Best subscription I've paid for, worth it for the lovely pictures alone. This one has a story about elephant poachers and ivory tusks with spy chips in 'em. James Bond shit man.

If someone used the blog reply feature to just divide a somewhat long blog into easier-to-digest chapters that could be consumed at the leisure of readers, would that be kosher?

@Barry Kelly It looks like it will get pretty difficult later on. It even has instafail stealth sections according to @Chris Carter #neededanexcuse to #tryouttheatfeature

I hope MGS V manages to have some sort of challenge to it. I just replayed MGS 4 for the first time since release and wow that game just practically plays itself. And that's outside of the long sections it is playing itself!
