C-Blog recaps of 1/12/13 + 1/13/13 + (Phil)gasms

   0




I'm feeling baller y'all. I don't know why. Maybe it's this big ass house. This new puppy I got (not a puppy, 3yr old yellow lab), maybe it's my new video card (Not that new at all, but to me it is) and all these games I can run now (Like 13 titles I owned and couldn't play, just BAM!), I don't know. I'm just feeling on top of the world right now. The only thing I can complain about is the fucking Maloofs finally getting their wish to sell the Sacramento Kings. Fucking team killing, greedy assclowns. Worse than god damn Smurfee.

Anyone seen that little blue bastard? Worries me when I don't see him around for a few days. He's probably lurking in some alley, shaving innocent cats nipples. That guy.... man.

What have you all been playing lately? I'm really loving L4D2 on PC at the moment. IT COMES WITH ALL THOSE CAMPAIGNS! Like wow. Then all the user created stuff on top of that? Safe to say, I've fully joined the master race again, after a 8 year absence. Just too many good deals and too much bullshit with consoles now days. But that aside, L4D2 for sure and of course everyone knows my deep love affair with Don't Starve. There is a new update for that Tuesday and after the turf building from last week, I'm very excited to see what's in store. I'll be posting another diaries blog about it soon (because you totally care). Well, that's enough baller blabbing from me, on with the caps!

*- Ccesarano discusses east coast expos and the awesome times he had there.
*- Part 4 of Tim333's Dragon Quest series. The time and detail put into this blog series impresses.
*- You HAVE to see Dao2-SKP's amazing setup. Not to mention the awesome contest he is running.
*- Strider takes on a long beautiful journey through 2012. Only thing that's missing? XCOM MOTHERF***ER!
*- Patrick Hancock is one of my favorite front pagers at Destructoid. He plays the stuff I play. Here is an amazing list, of amazing games coming in 2013.

A- Snealiv throws out a great write up on Nvidia's thingamajigger and some of the challenges it faces. Looks like a folding xbox. Not 360 either. O.G.
P- The Low(er) Tier delivers episode 4: Deadly Serious and another contest! I HAVE NO PERSONAL INTEREST IN THIS, BUT YOU SHOULD TOTALLY LISTEN.
A- Nekobun shares a great write up explaining streaming, the ways to get into it and more! Great stuff.

C- Osga21 strikes out with me again. talking about Valve this time.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Fake it until you make it

This month's bloggers wanted prompt is something we stole. You see, by stealing this idea, you have no idea how truly inept I actually am. By pretending to know what I'm doing, I have clearly used my ill-gotten status to meet such big-time celebrities as Darlington Woolie "Pie Stealer" Madden or Sara from [insert pixel indie game studio here].

This month's bloggers wanted was inspired by the internal enjoyment we had at reading TheBlondeBass' promoted blog on faking conversational anime knowledge. And now it seems as good a time as ever to pretend to know what's going on since the new Fate/Grand Order game launched and qtoid is talking about it. I am a big fan of the character design of Artoria in the blue dress, or Artoria in the suit, or Artoria in the red dress. But seriously, we enjoyed the format so much that we want to ask the community for their own ideas at faking it at all sorts of things.

But this prompt is not just for anime, of course. The video game industry is fractured with all sorts of niche interests that only an insane rich person with no job could realistically know everything about. This month's bloggers wanted is about taking a subject you want to offer advice on faking knowledge about in order to help the greater community, for better or for worse. If this doesn't sound serious, don't worry, you're not supposed to take it seriously. You don't have to be an expert in whatever you talk about any more than Bass is an expert in anime.

I seriously don't know if that was a compliment or an insult.

Offer advice on anything you can expand your mind on. Want to help people get into character action games? The more Ss you put into its grading system, the cooler it is! Want to convince people to get into the Neptunia series? Just say "Nep-Nep!" and you're all set to convince people of your technical knowledge! Can you get someone into RTS game by just talking about your APM? Someone's bound to believe some random technical jargon you made up!

To get started, start a blog and title it "Faking it: [your blog title here]." Then you can be as serious or facetious as you want as you provide advice on any number of things: learning how to play fighting games, trying a long-running franchise you've probably neglected, or even explaining a game's timeline. Heck, you can probably seriously try on that last one and we still wouldn't believe you.

Good luck this month. Only true cowards rely on facts. Real heroes pretend to know what they're doing!



Current Community Contests
PREPARE TO CONTEST - The Master Gaming List Birthday Giveaway!

Good Morning/Evening/Yesterday, my Friends/Robots/INSERT WAIFU HERE,

More or less a week ago, the Master Gaming List turned one year old. I had a speech prepared, but the blog editor ate it four or five times over the last few days, so I'm kind of winging it now.

Despite all of the threatening and cajoling I initially made to get you all on the list, I never imagined I'd still be adding names a year later (and by "you all", I mostly mean GajKnight). It was kind of a ridiculous undertaking at first, trying to make a semi-permanent, easily-updatable list of everyone's contact info. I'm not even sure what everyone was being hyped over last year that got me to do this.

That said, I'm glad it came together, and this list has lead to many other things for me on Destructoid; whether it was me becoming our laziest, cuddliest Community Manager, or our laziest, cuddliest Reviews-type-person, I have always enjoyed the full love and support of this community.

In thanks, and with the assistance of quite a few others, I've gathered up a number of game keys to give away to you all.

The Contest

I've never run a contest before, so let's keep things simple. Write me a haiku about your favorite game.

Rules

1. The haiku must not include the title of the game.

2. I will accept any other form of structured poetry if you are unable to haiku but can iambic pantameter (you monster).

3. Please state what key you are going for, and a backup if that one is taken (admittedly, it's quantity over variety here)

4. The tentative end date of the contest will be August 13th, and will be bumped at least once during that time.

Available Keys

-Stellaris
-Aporia: Beyond The Valley (Multiple Keys)
-The Witness
-Citadel: Forged With Fire (Multiple Keys)
-Armello
-Undertale
-ABZU

Thank you to all 282 of you who have made the Master List a successful project over the past year! I will continue updating it into the forseeable future.
