About Cblog Recaps

   0

Cblog Recaps is a community oriented service meant to help bloggers and readers sort through... Cblogs. Maybe you were away from Destructoid and just want to catch up, or you just wanted to see if you miss something, or you just wanted to read some random commentary.

The recaps are done daily (Or at least they're supposed to be). Recaps will usually go up 1-2 days after the day it covers and include everything after the last recap.

Additionally, sometimes there is random commentary about random crap. On these days, you will see a + [name]isms to the blog title.

Cblog Recaps has been continually evolving since its inception. It was first done by Cowzilla3, taken over by Coonskin05, revamped and taken over by ceark, and then passed along to a group of community volunteers.

This page is meant to serve as a guide on how to read the recaps.


Recap Guide

These are the recapper's personal picks of the day. This doesn't mean they're the best posts. In fact, some of them might be pretty bad posts. These are simply the posts that the recapper enjoyed the most this particular day, and their choice is merely personal opinion.

This the category for the writer-esque type posts.

A - Articles
These are the community articles of the day. Community articles are blog posts that reach a sizable length, and are written to a certain standard of organized thought and quality.

S - Series
These are serialized blog posts done by community members.

B - Bloggers Wanted
These are writings that fall under the Bloggers Wanted topics.

P - Podcasts
These are Podcasts done by the community.

This category obviously pertains to contests. This should be relatively self explantory. Community Contest rules will be linked on the Side Bar and remain there for the duration of the contest. If we're missing your contest, please let us know.

C - Community Contests
A new contest set up by a member of the community.

W - Winners/Updates
A winrar is you.

C - Could Be Better
These posts don't fail. But they could use more effort.

? - Defies Description
I essentially don't have the slightest clue what any of these posts are about.

This is sorta the junk of the day. I'd like to note that this isn't an awful category to be in every once in awhile, so don't feel bad if you get Failed or Slowed. It's just a kind note of sorts. In an effort to remain mostly objective, I won't discriminate on who falls into here. If it's slow or it fails, that's that.

S - You Are Slow
Some one beat you to the punch, or old news/content that's not worth rehashing.

F - Maybe Fail?
Probably Fails. It's ok though, everyone fails at some point. Just try not to do it too often.

From time to time a wave of internet enthusiasm will wash over the site and many people will start making blogs centered around a particular theme. This doesn't happen very often, but when it does we'll collect them under the MemeToid banner.


There will be an additional link at the bottom labeled FPoTD. Feel free to ignore it, this stands for Final Post of the Day and is just there to tell the next recapper where to start.

We aren't perfect, and this process is not automated by any means. Occasionally we will miss a blog, or even an entire day if no one can cover for a regular. Please keep in mind this is a service provided for the community by a group of volunteers. If you'd like to know more about helping with CblogRecaps, please direct your questions to StriderHoang.

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.
