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!

Hardline 30: D4 is weird, Blizzard cancels Titan, and Steam curators for days

Steven was too busy grocery shopping to attend this week's Hardline, but that didn't stop me, Brett, and Bill from talking about Blizzard canceling its MMO Titan, opium dens, Steam's redesign, the mean streets of Japan, Swery65's bizarre D4, and time traveling for the Tokyo Game Show.

Dio in Skyrim: Part 3 - Don't "Taco" To Strangers

In the third part of our ongoing investigative series on what it would be like if heavy metal pioneer Ronnie James Dio was, in fact, a mage in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In this installment, we forget more lyrics, and Max's girlfriend gets home from work, only to find a very special surprise waiting for her. Is it tacos? (Yes. That's exactly what it is.)more
