Did you miss me?



How about now?.... WELL FINE! I missed you though :(

HOLY CRAP I'M BACK! Damn have I missed you fine folks. What's happened in the month I've been gone? The worlds ended twice, Christmas is tomorrow, people are pointing blame everywhere (but where they should), GOTY awards and lists up the wazoo, that one thing with the guy... LOTS OF STUFFS! We're not here for any of that though. You folks are here for some sexy caps regarding this past weekend, aren't you? AREN'T YOU? TELL ME THE TRUTH MARTHA! Moving on....

Before I cap this place up and down (and possibly all around, haven't made my mind up yet), let's sit down and chat. Where has ole Phil been? Now, you probably don't care, but fuck you. I'm telling it anyway. I was in the process of moving to my new (and ballah) house, when that big ass storm hit Sacramento. The one with the flooding? Yeah, that one. Well guess who had his phone/cable lines trashed in said storm? That's right: Charles Duncan. But also me! Since so much damage happened, I've had wait forever for AT&T to get out here and fix it all. Then I had to wait for them to fix their fuck up that they made doing that. Then... anyways, now I'm here. With you all. As I should be. Your hive mind sex god has missed you and is no longer hindered by only being on a phone. Let's do some capping shall we?



*- ManWithNoName is sick of your whining. STOP WHINING! No, he didn't say that. I'm stuck in Arnold mode after Jingle All The Way.
*- Alphadeus drops the music of 2012 on our asses. Boosh.
*- EpicKx gives us his best for 2012 and does a damn fine job of it. I was going to fail him out of spite, but fuck it. It's Christmas. Merry X-Mas Silky.

P- These assho...HEY GUYS! It's episode 6 of Scary Granules! Ooooo it's X-Masy and reeks of pine too....
A- A very entertaining read on Ground Zeroes by Bory Borham. Featuring some MG history and speculation on where it's headed!
S- Marcunio88 continues with day 9 of her 12 days of X-Mas games. Today: Limbo
A- ManWithNoName drops an interesting piece about Brazil's grey market of games. I appreciate folks with grey that get a Brazilian.



E- Weekend Warriors continues and no one plays Monaco with me. F%^K YOU GUYS.
C- Kwamouflage returns with Zentoid 2: We gamers are killers. I dig the layout. Nice.
S- A very cool tale of what Rock Band is to Bigboss0110.
C- Jetpacksheep gives us a good write-up about always on DRM.

R- Ctate95 busts out a timely review of NFS: Hot Pursuit
V- SirTobbii gives out his soundtrack of the year award and looks like a sexy Fassbender on heroin while doing it.
P- Ctate95 gives us an in-depth look at Elder Scrolls Online. Nope. Not for me.
V- A Pringles Radview of Guild Wars. This does not look easy to make.
T- Sven Wohl shares his overlooked in '12 list.

M- Johnel Lance shares some VG Christmas songs with us all.

C- TheKodu spreads some truth, but needs better formatting and spell checking and flow.
C- WOWitsAwombat needs an intro blog and a longer, more thought out blog period.
R- Kwamouflage gives us Oldtoid. Holy shit, weird doesn't even cover it.


F- I tried not to fail anyone, but GODDAMMIT Esteban, you at least have to type SOMETHING! FFS man.



Wasn't that special? Darn tootin' it was. You folks go have a Merry Christmas or Holiday or whatever. I've got some kids I need to make happy and some Don't Starve to play and blog about. Also, keep your eyes peeled for a special X-Mas Low(er) Tier Podcast episode coming up. It's got a lot of presents :)

Merry X-Mas my virtual family, I love you all. Even you Smurfee. Kind of.... ;)

Make 'em bounce now!

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.
