So folks, I've been around these parts for a little over a year now.  You all have been stuck with me for a whole year.  Let that sink in for a bit.........ok has it sunk in?  Anyway congratulations on surviving this early access version of Dere.  You now get the full version.

You may be thinking it's been longer than that and you're kind of right.  A few months before I joined I creeped and punned from a distance, but rest assured I was watching you all, all creepy, breathing over your shoulders, smelling your hair.  It's my thing.  But then starting in December you got the full frontal version of me when I joined. Lucky you!

So now that my first year is done here, thanks to all for making me feel welcome.  I look forward to this upcoming year of talking about games and toilets and how horrible Torch is at picking waifus.  It's going to be a hell of a ride folks.

* - Greenhornet214 gives a look at his top 10 Christmas movies. I have to say, this list is pretty spot on. The only thing it's missing is Diehard. Also, Christmas Vacation is so obviously the best Christmas movie every and that is verifiable fact. Well done Green Hornet, well done

S - Jetfandam continues his talks about fighting games, this time giving you some advice on how to pick your character. Jetfandam knows his fighters, so maybe you should listen peeps!

S - Flegma continues with his last blog in his series of looking back at old-school and retro games. It's been a fun ride Flegma. You keep being you friend

S - Boobs, sex, big boobs, sexy time...sorry, I hear fanfic and my mind wanders. Greenhornet214 gives us a look at his fanfic about the forerunners. I have to say, it's way better than Halo 4 and 5

T - Virtua Kizama gives us a list of fighting games coming up in 2018 to look forward to. I suck at fighting games, but Kazama has me even excited for what's upcoming

T - Michael Arrietta takes a look at what he thinks we're the best multiplayer experiences of 2017. If you're in to multiplayer games, check it out. Some good stuff

T - Taterchimp gives us the list of games and a quick review of the games he's finished from 2017. Taterchimp has been busy and he gives us some really nice reviews

A - Video games as art. You're darn right it can be art. Jim Kelly gives us a look at some of the art work he's done. Take a look at it

R - Bloodstained isn't afraid to be sexy. Xombiemike gives us the poll results for some costume ideas that fans voted on

Just remember, he who stands on toilet is high on pot--Dere

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Costume Party

When it comes to October, it's pretty easy to come up with an idea for Bloggers Wanted. Halloween presents a lot of options. People will start playing horror games and marathon scary movies, but then there's the ultimate question for the day itself:

"What am I going to wear?"

Costumes are, after all, at the very heart of Halloween's fun. Whether you're playing a game with a canon character like Lara Croft, Spider-Man or a customized character in Monster Hunter World or an MMO, you're still faced with the question of what are you going to look like. Sometimes you even have stat bonuses to further complicate things, while other games have made it so you can have all the lovely stat bonuses and still make something that looks nice to you. Some folks even take this all huge step further and will realize such costumes for real-life cosplay.

As someone that posts often about Final Fantasy XIV, I have spent countless hours obtaining all kinds of armor, weapons and accessories from various corners of the game and only for the reason of it looking cool. In fact, once I have a job at 50, I feel obligated to give each of my jobs a fanciful glowing weapon before I press forward.

And then I give each job their own little pet sidekick, because I have decided my character is a Disney princess. Then I write macros that give them a blend of super sentai/Sailor Moon transformations because henshin a-go-go, baby!

But, if I'm honest, my one true love in regards to outfits in the game is the Invalician Samurai set, which I got from the Rabanastre raid. The design is pulled right from the Final Fantasy Tactics' art concept of the female samurai and is wonderfully realized.

But sometimes looking good comes at a price, too. I remember my favorite look for my Corsair in Final Fantasy XI required me wearing pants that reduced my movement speed by twenty percent and some of the best stat-based builds in Monster Hunter can make you look silly.

So this month's topic for Bloggers Wanted is costumes. Whether the costume is realized in-game or in real-life, we'd like for you to to discuss your favorite creations or tributes to characters, whether it's a custom look, a canon character or even a character skin like you'd find in Overwatch or Fortnite. You can discuss cosplays you've done, or cosplayers you admire. You can even talk about the plights of stat-based function over fashion.

The sky is the limit on this one, so head on over to our community blogs and get to writing! Use the prompt "Costume party: [Your title here]" and be sure to place "Bloggers Wanted" in the tags!

Now if you'll excuse me, I have get Bayonetta dressed up. She's heard about everyone and everything becoming Princess Peach and she would like to remind the world she was ahead of the curve on that.
