This Week in the Community Blogs: Mooned

8:00 PM on 10.01.2012 // 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!]

Another week, another batch of cblogs for our eyes and brains to enjoy!

The last week of September was a bit slower than those earlier in the month. Still, we were treated to a great variety amongst the blogs that were published, so let's get right to it!

Moonday
(^Click these header links to be taken to the CblogRecaps for that day!) 

Monday was fittingly slow for a day of the week named after the Moon. I mean, seriously, have you ever watched that thing move through the sky? Boooriiinnng. Stupid Moon.

Luckily, unlike on the Moon, the stuff you people published contained no cheese at all! Voltech weighed in on the whole DmC/Dante debate, and believe it or not I think you'll like it even if you're the most jaded of DMC fans! Elsewhere, in whatever crazy goddamn world he inhabits (possibly the Moon?), Zombie Orwell recapped all the info he's gleaned from humans during his time amongst us. Yep.

Capping off the day, vlesditor shared her art history thesis with us, which compared gender roles (among other things) using Super Mario Bros. and Yume Nikki as a basis. Very interesting stuff!

Testicle Tuesday

Unlike Monday, Tuesday was a big day! Hell, it was almost as big as the penis Elsa clearly wishes she had!

Seriously, though, the day was like a metaphor for all of life's many milestones. TheManchild shared with us his past love for Ecco the Dolphin and his trepidation about the series' future, Sophie Prell bid us all a heartfelt adieux, and, like bbain the week before, Wrenchfarm celebrated his one year CblogRecaps anniversary! Congrats, dude!

Elsewhere in the cblogs, Nathan Evrard listed a few of his favorite MMO terms. I had seriously never heard of any of these before... except for "Woot"... which I've always hated. Still, worth a read!

"Remember When?"sday

Apparently made of nothing but time, TheManchild followed up Tuesday's Ecco appreciation blog with an absolutely wonderful story about his and his cousins' epic quest to find Luigi in Super Mario 64. Ah, the innocent stupidity of childhood!

In keeping with the theme of really old games that nobody talks about anymore, Zombie Orwell (who dedicates just the right amount of time to blogging, considering he's dead and all) finally gave us the Mass Effect review we've all been waiting for, while MisterDonut paid his respects to the place where all life began. Thanks for a great Wednesday, everyone!

Thorismymancrushday

ccesarano kicked off Thursday with a plea for game developers to involve their writing staff from the beginning of development. Couldn't have said it better myself! Then, long john shared his Outer Heaven-inspired journey with FTL, while Leigh Davidson chimed in with some thoughts on the downfall of Resident Evil. Oh, and LogicallyDashing blogged about Thor. Which I'm OK with because Chris Hemsworth is Kirk's dad.

Finally, our own Beccy Caine detailed everything the Dtoid UK crew was up to during Eurogamer. Thanks for keeping everyone alive, Beccy!

Freaky Friday

Friday saw a ton of awesome blogs. randombullseye reminded us all why Anthony Burch will forever be missed around here, TheCiderMan reminded us all why dragons are badass, TheManchild reminded us all why Earthbound had such an impact, and PhilK3nS3bb3n reminded us all who the hell he is.

Capping off the week, your dedicated FNF czars made sure you all had something to do this weekend on the 360, PS3, 3DS and PC. Thanks a bunch as always, guys!

Not Weakend

Like the rest of the week, the weekend was relatively slow in Cblogville. But that didn't stop a few of you from pumping out some awesome blogs!

Waviline wrote a wonderful piece on what made City of Heroes so special, while KingSigy wrote a F3AR-inspired story, which was better than the actual plot of the game, from what I hear! And finally, Nihil shared some thoughts on racism and some other heavy shit. Oh Nihil. You so heavy.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to blog this week!

This week's promoted blogs

In spite of the relative slowness, we managed to promote three of your blogs to the front page! First up was bbain's wonderful recap of all the indie games he played at PAX. I still haven't figured out how you managed to find the time to play all those games! Next was locketheleisz's tribute to Game Boy and D-Pad creator Gunpei Yokoi. Such a wonderful story! And last but not least was fulldamage's write-up of some of the most dedicated fans in all of gaming. Who knew videogame nerds could be so thoughtful?

Thanks for all the great work, everyone!

This week's community podcasts

ZeroCool was the only podcast to record something this week. Sucks to be our ears!

This week's community contests

PK493 is giving away some extra copies of games he got in the latest Humble Bundle! Get 'em while the gettin's good!

This week's trend: Serious business

Between vlesditor's master's thesis, Elsa's take on gender roles, PhilK3nS3bb3n's re-intro blog and racism call to arms, and much, much more, you people were all about tackling the serious issues this week. And there's nothing wrong with that!

It's nice to see thought-provoking, discussion-provoking blogs every now and again, as they serve to remind us that even though Dtoid can often be a lighthearted place, important issues do still matter. So kudos to all you brave souls who are brave enough to tackle the "big" issues!

Now, back to the cocks.

And that's it for this week! See you next time, Dtoiders!

Just got home from Deadpool and ... it's not good. I liked the jabs at Green Lantern and the previous movie Deadpool, but that was about it. The rest was just painfully forced dick jokes. Wife fell asleep.

Larxinostic rule34

Looks like I'm not gonna be able to 100% Tearaway Unfolded until Monday at the least. I'm definitely writing about it this weekend and am trying my hardest to get my screenshots off of my PS4 (especially hard as I don't do social media anymore)
Darth Wachen avatarDarth Wachen
I've never done a blog before, so I may as well try one with a review of Stranger of Sword City....well, when I get entered into that contest of course

Shakedown Hawaii is giving me good GTA vibes. I missed the topdown GTA games when they were a thing. I have to decide what platform to get it for since it's coming to 3DS/Vita/PS4/PC (probably the Vita version for moi).

You think your art sucks? Here's the rule34 I made of Larx yesterday. Look at it and despair.

Hey Dreamweaver? If you think your art sucks, you should have a look at my magnum opus. It's of Cloud from the popular game, Final Fantasy: All the Bravest.
Agent9 avatarAgent9
I never thought this would happen, but here I am. all of my 700+ pokemon gone in one day. My cart stopped working and there's nothing I can do. I quit, you can't just rebuild all that. Time to find something else.

Tom Collins is a pretty great drink, and well suited for poutine. consumption

It may be because I've been drinking but... We need some dung beetles from ark for the front page. Move that dung on out.
CoilWhine avatarCoilWhine
Does anyone know how to get PS4 screenshots onto a PC without needing a flash drive? I don't have a spare.
Dreamweaver avatarDreamweaver
This is an example of how bad my drawings are. I honestly think drawing stick figures would've been easier on the eyes. :( The worst thing about this image is that this was made after I got BETTER. Trust me, you don't want to see my earlier stuff. T^T

So I received a mysterious box in the mail today. When I opened it I was blown away...The friends I've made here on Destructoid are amazing (More pics in the comments).

Woe is me. This month's Cblog theme is basically an excuse to draw pretty girls, and here I am with no time.

Maybe one day I'll reach bronze rank in Rocket League...

A very Bloodborne-y moment.

Back in tip-top shape guys, feel waaaaay better than I have done these past few weeks. Plus my voice sounds slightly raspy now, meaning my Batman impression has been upgraded. Apologies to Gaj and Solar the most, my male-up kisses go to you: Xxxxxx
OverlordZetta avatarOverlordZetta
Wait... Is that...? Could it be...? It IS! Gravity Rush's Kat has taken a break from rushing and graviting to sacrifice some souls in Soul Sacrifice Delta! Which isn't even going for $8 on the PS Store right now! What a steal!
ScionVyse avatarScionVyse
Finally got my in game time down to under an hour in Super Metroid. I'm pretty happy about that.
