C-Blog recaps of 3/23/13 + 3/24/13 + Philgasms

   0





Welcome to the weekend recaps! Once again we ride together to enjoy all the lovely (and not so lovely) c-blogs this weekend has thrown at us. Not a lot this weekend, so that's kind of nice considering the week or so I've had. That's neither here, nor there though.

Y'all motherfudgers hear about XCOM coming to iPad? AWWWWW YISSSSS. I think it's pretty damn cool at least. That's XCOM on 3 machines in my house. Even more important than that though, was the tease of a bigger threat coming. Does this mean sequel? An expansion? I straight gives no fucks. Either makes me happy as hell. I'm betting sequel though. Anyone who has beaten Enemy Unknown, knows what was said about testing at the end. Firaxis has the engine nailed down now, so really a sequel just needs add a ton of stuff and more maps please. Seriously the same ole damn maps are my biggest gripe about EU.



I can't say anything else has really grabbed me, news wise from PAX at least. Mercenary Kings looks pretty damn amazing and just my type of game, but that's it for me out of all the new stuff (Well Dishonored DLC, but that's DLC). I'm always down for awesome 2D co-op action. Anything Metal Slug-y gets an instant look and sale from me. Doesn't hurt the art is absolutely gorgeous (Paul Robertson gets ALL THE HANDIES!).


Alright, enough bullshitting. I don't have anything to get all passionate about and I don't feel like whining in the recaps (that's for my personal blog), so let's get to capping eh?


*- A drunken ode to Kyousuke Nanbu. Sauced for leaving it up and owning it like a man. Otherwise I'd fail you for your drunken rambling taking up space and not even being spell checked.
*- Nathsies gives us Vol. 4 in the Up, Down, Left, Right series. Crazy awesome you do these man.
*- One of the most well written reviews I've ever read. It's for GOW: Judgement.

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.
