C-Blog recaps of 10/27/12 + 10/28/12 + Weeniegasms

   0


Happy early hollow weenie!


I love Halloween. The smell of the air (smoke, leaves and the promise of winter), the little kids running around having fun, the smell of blood on my hands and the fear in the eyes of my sacrifice to the dark lord. Candy too. Candy is good. Yep, all hallows eve is a great holiday. The souls of the dead pouring through a portal, fairies playing pranks and my favorite Samhain cd playing the background. Oh and Snickers. Kit-Kats too. Love those things. Ohhh corporate monetization of holidays/beliefs, you so cray cray.

I've always loved this one.


Anyone been playing any horror games? I've been digging back into Dead Space 2 and had forgotten just how good the sound was in that one. Did they win any awards for that? They should have. Fantastic audio and a great game. I love how gory and truly horrifying the creature design is too. It reminds of Guillermo Del Toro's stuff. Human, yet alien at the same time. Stuff that just hits a nerve. Ugh, those babies. *shivers*



What else..... eh, I got nothing, have some caps.

*- Leigh Davidson presents an open letter to the gaming press. Good stuff.
*- Tiq lays out his thoughts on the whole mess going on and brings up some good stuff.
*- Ninjapresident, dropping his thoughts on piracy. I frown upon it mostly myself. Can't say I haven't been guilty of it though.

A- ManWithNoName is an old fart who doesn't like old farty things. Get him a glass of Metamucil and a Lawernce Welk record, but hold the old school gaming.
P- The beautiful Communitoid has returned with episode 2! Really digging this one. Good work y'all.
A- The Kodu discusses the new PS3 hack/key unlock thing. At least it happened now and not a few years ago. Plus most people are too stupid to be able to do this.
P- The Scary Granules podcast debuts. From the minds of GlowBear and Panza, say hello to accents and probably a bunch of strange ramblings! I haven't gotten a chance to listen yet, as these two hate SEMI DEAF PEOPLE ;)
A- MisterDonut fails to see the value in certain game over screens. Didn't I stab you last week? Oh shit..... ZOMBIE!



E- Last Call for Nihil's forum werewolf game. I call team Jacob!
E- Nihil begins/lays out the game and a soundtrack.
D- How cool is PK493? Check out what he did with bbain! Which reminds me, HEY ANDY, HOW WAS THAT PAX ADOPTION? dick
I- A re-intro from a gentlemen, who happens to be bearded. He's a bearded gentlemen. Beard. Gentle. Men.
C- Togutas discusses losing the drive to finish games and how that correlates to price.
C- Why do we buy games, is the question BenefitEvil poses. Ummmm, we like them? Silly.
E- Skid Row Trash rallies the Max Payne 3 gang, for a triple xp weekend.
I- Afro Man says what up, has a dead console and is going to play some Guild Wars 2.
C- Bearded Gent discusses Microsofts policy of bending over their customers and repeatedly effin them. BREAK THE CYCLE PEOPLE.

T- Whats Zephyr Gamgee's favorite game? Read on... (Totally my favorite bird-type creature ever)
T- LoonyWoman shares some thoughts on Witcher and more gushing for Guild Wars 2! That angry chicken better have been smited.
P- DimmuJed gives us a look at Hawken. I want this game hard.
V- Dao2-SKP has a Hawken vid and intent for doing a contest. Drop by and vote on how ou'd like the contest to go.

A- SlackerTLO draws..... awesome.... horrifying......stuffings....
A- MEAT FACE on the second screen! SCHWING!
A- SlackerTLO has another one for us. X-mas is getting freaky this year.

C- The Darkerman wants to update us on his goings on, but doesn't give us much info to go on.
R- I won't fail you because I liked your approach and I dig the review system. Check out the site Siegarettes is pimping folks.
C- windowman88 calls it a review of Borderlands 2, but it's not very review-ish. More gushy than anything.





Well that wraps it up for me, your gracious host and possible psycho. Have a safe Halloween and send me any razors you find your candy. I need them. Oh and would someone please punch that one asshole who gives out healthy food. You know the fuck bag I speak of. I'm sorry but I don't let my kids eat for shit and you wanna push your hippie bullshit on me tonight? On fucking Halloween? Ever since I had kids that's been pissing me off. At least have an extra bowl of real candy for the kids who aren't fat pigs.

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.
