LONG BLOG

Cblogs from Feb 1st, 2018! And me talking about stuff about me!

   0

Hey guys, it's your buddy NeoTurbo with your recap of the Thursday cblogs! But first up time for some rambling!

You guys playing Monster Hunter World right now? It's pretty much consuming my life right now. My current no job-ness means I have all the time to play it and believe me, I have spent waaaaay too much time on it and (still plan too). I'm in high rank now and pretty much re-grinding to survive the new challenges.

Speaking of jobs, I've decided to get off my "barely supported financially by the government" ass and start trying to work again. I was recommended a place called Alberta Job Corp that helps people like me who've been out of work for awhile get working again. I start later this month! It would be nice to be comfortable financially again.

In other news, I'm house sitting next week! Two friends of mine are getting married this month (yay!), but I wasn't able to go (booo!). But I guess they needed someone to watch the house for insurance reasons, so I'm just going to live there for a week and eat all their food. Fun times!

Alright, time for the recaps!



R - Here Oculin gives us his rundown of Kirby: Battle Royale. Is it a great new play with friends game? I guess you better read to see!

R - Furrybearpanda tells us what he thinks of Dragonball Fighter Z. Spoilers; lots of gushing is involved.

L - dephoenix has his monthly book of the month, this time featuring Not Quite the Classics by Colin Mochrie. I'm a huge fan of the guy, so I think I need to check this book out.

Well that was another edition of the Thursday recap! Tune in next week to see if I accidentally burned my friends house down!

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.
