This Week in the Community Blogs: Follow that robot!

8:00 PM on 10.16.2012 // mrandydixon

[In "This Week in the Community Blogs", we highlight notable happenings in the Cblogs section of the site. Special thanks to the hardworking Dtoiders on the CblogRecaps team, without whom a feature like this wouldn't be possible!]

The good times continue to roll in the Dtoid community blogs! Your community managers recorded a new podcast, ManWithNoName returned with a bang, and two NARP groups announced new gatherings!

Hit the jump to see everything else that went down this week!

Monday, October 8
(^Click these header links to be taken to the CblogRecaps for that day!) 

The week started off right with a great blog from Epic KxDtoid about the trials of being an SD gamer in an HD world. Game developers, take note! On a similarly "dated" note, Master Chibi finally discovered the glory that is Team Fortress 2. Hey, better late than never!

Shifting gears, siegarettes composed a short-but-sweet thought-blog concerning violence in videogames, and Panzadolphin looked back at the 80s horror game Sweet Home. Great write-ups, everyone!

Tuesday, October 9

Kicking off the inevitable influx of Halloween-themed blogs, Lieutenant Bourbon recommended two games to play to freak yourself out in this scariest of months, stubbleman detailed exactly why you should play Endless Ocean 2 if you haven't already, and NoctisDragonGamer looked back at when, why, and how Nintendo got "doomed". Great blogs, people!

In other news, our own Chris Carter kicked off the latest in his Quest series, this time tackling everyone's favorite anti-hero, Wario. Check back often for updates as he trudges his way through the series!

Wednesday, October 10

In keeping with Tuesday's spooky theme, Garison reminded us all of the Majora's Mask "cursed cartridge" urban legend, while Dtoid New England shared their plans for a Halloween NARP! Elsewhere, Yves Considerably shared a brief story about how videogames helped him get through his uncle's funeral, locketheleisz explained why he's fed up with so-called "triple A" games, and Solar20XX took a look around the newly designed Destructoid and liked what he saw. Thanks for the kind words!

/enters shameless self promotion mode

Hey! You! Did you know that your Destructoid community managers recorded a podcast last week? And that in future episodes, you'll have a chance to be on itGo check out Communitoid and give us some feedback!

In other exciting cblog happenings, the ManWithNoName finally made his way back to our mad corner of the universe, while Yves Considerably finally hit that 100,000 gamerscore mark! We all know that was waaay better than the sex you could have been having; thanks for sharing!

Friday, October 12

Remember all the way back to two sentences ago, when ManWithNoName returned to Dtoid? Well, he wasted no time getting right back into the swing of things, and his first blog since returning was a (pseudo-NSFW) look at pornography in videogames (two of my favorite things). Check it out! Then the Dtoid Baltimore/DC crew announced their upcoming November NARP, kuroir shared some updates for your cblogging software (THANKS!), and Occams electric toothbrush splooged his brain juices all over the internet in his latest Occam's Thoughts. Nice work!

Also on Friday, your normal slew of FNF blogs made their weekly appearance. Whether you game on the 360, PS3, 3DS or PC, we've got you covered!

The Wankend, October 13 and 14

As if to say, "Ha, and you thought you were going to get some sleep this weekend!", you were busier on Saturday and Sunday than on all the other days in the universe to have ever been... uh... something. The point is, you wrote a ton of blogs this weekend!

ManWithNoName kicked things off with his thoughts on how to fix Mirror's Edge, ReeceH92 shared his list of the top five most innovative zombie games, and PhilK3nS3bb3n announced a new community podcast, the Low(er) Tier Podcast! (Now, can someone please teach Phil how to upload a new blog header?) Also, Excel-2011 shared exactly how he would "fix" Capcom, and MisterDonut called it quits with Pokemon. (Well, maybe.)

All in all, a wonderful weekend! Pat yourselves on the backs!

This week's promoted blogs

We promoted two of your blogs to the front page this week! First up was Cutie Honey's write-up on his issues with Project X Zone, followed by Revuhlooshun's open letter to Capcom. I'm happy to say that these were two of the most widely-read blogs ever to appear on our front page; great job, guys!

This week's community podcasts

Not much on this front this week, but what's there is glorious! The Low(er) Tier Podcast was announced (hooray!), and Communitoid recorded its very first episode! Go give it a listen!

This week's community contests

PhilK3nS3bb3n is giving away Resident Evil 4 HD, and all you have to do to win is tell him to upload a new blog header! (Well, there may be a bit more to it... but not much.) Thanks, Phil!

And that's it for this week! As always, thanks to everyone who takes the time to cblog, and we'll see you next time, Dtoiders!

Heading off to Spiel in a bit. A whole lot of games there, just of the cardboard variety. I love me some board games.

Finally finished The Witcher 3. Definitely one of the best games I've played in my 30 years or so of gaming. Now onward to Ground Zeroes/Phantom Pain.

If anyone's playing Marvel Puzzle Quest (any platform) you should join my Alliance, RedRightHand, and help me kick some Galactus butt for their second anniversary event. (Please?)

MGS Online Day 3. I have 3 character up to level 10 now, one in each class. They're all pretty handy, but I do miss the scout's mark speed the most on other classes.

The SW: Battlefront is pretty and has great sound design, but the gameplay is so shallow and has seemingly no depth! If the full game is like this I will be disappointed.

Dear Playboy: Love your video game coverage, but how about you start making some topless unboxing videos? Seeing someone unwrap a copy of Call of Duty is boring. Seeing a topless Playmate unwrap a copy of anything is awesome!

In happier news, Level-5 is already talking Yo-Kai Watch 2's Western release, and better/worse yet, they're considering amiibo support for the series! And hey, if they can't get Jibanyan into Smash, that'd be one way to get the West's attention.

I drank a glass of Ovaltine for the first time in years today. It was nice. Like drinking a glass of my childhood, complete with ignorance, embarrassing angst, tears (so many tears) and night terrors. Ah, the good 'ol days.

[img][/img] This is just depressing. Digital classics on consoles are such a great idea, but it's like not a single company wants to really go through with it.

I recently beat Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow again, but this time I played on Hard mode from scratch. Outside of dying a few times due to me being an idiot, and enemies hitting harder, it was actually easy. Like really easy.

Today I replated bacteria that I made take up a plamid hopefully stitched onto the genes generatlight. Taken from other dead bacteria and put into a non glowing species, to make it glow. Fucking microbiology is the best.

It seems fairy farts are a fragrance, a soap, incense, a vaping liquid and a kind of nail polish. I'm clearly in the wrong line of work and need to eat more chili.

"You gave the Lost Soul a big smile, like you remember she likes to do... For some reason she sort of wants to smile back..." I'm not crying. Not one bit.

Just tried 'The Last Of Us' on PSNow Trial, only to be told... 'Something went wrong. Try again.' Game-appropriate error message or quickie plot-summary?

I hate when people say crap like "I admit that [thing] in games is problematic, but I still enjoy it" because it's an underhanded way of contradicting your own views while convincing yourself that you aren't a hypocrite.

Well shit. I knew I was more than likely going to enjoy Star Wars Battlefront (cause you know, giant Star Wars nerd and all) but holy cow, the beta is fucking great! I need the full game like, now.
