C-Blog recaps of 9/22/12 + 9/23/12 + Lootgasms

   0


Howdy hosers. Not much going on this week. Pretty boring actually. Nothing to play, nothing to do. I wish some awesome, loot filled game would come out. Something that married FPS with a little rpg or something. Maybe have it co-op? The kids seem to dig that. Put in a bunch of easter eggs and pop culture. Yeah. That might be cool. Oh well, shame it doesn't exist. I'm depressed now, so this will be quick this week. I mean, I'm not trying to rush so I could go do something else...... not at all.



*- GlowBear throws out a fantastic write up on giving the disabled some options and representation in games. I wonder if Borderlands 2 has disabled options....
*- The awesomely named MisterDonut rolls into Shadow Moses 14 years too late. Or was it too late.... You know what it's not too late for? Finding Michael in Sanctuary.
*- A well formatted, fantastic write up on Double Dragon Neon and its 80s love by Jorgeill. Speaking of 80s love, I found a mission last night, involving ninja mutants. Mmmm hmmmm. Pizza!
*- The Gameslinger said he'd be back and he wasn't effin around. Coming back swinging, with this absolutely fantastic look at The Dark Eye. I remember this game freaking me out and loving it. Was one of my first PC titles in a long time too. It's not however, Borderlands 2. Sad really.

S- This is it. This is the end of Grethiwha's top 25 Wii list. What's next? Top 25 skins for Borderlands 2? Ooohhh, I know: Top 25 lines from bandits in Borderlands 2. Or how about....
S- A very unusual and interesting top 20 games of all time list. Only part 1 though. Hey whatsacow, not one mention of any lands with borders? WTF?
A- 1234271.... shares his/her 10 hardest bosses. I haven't found any decently crazy bosses in Borderlands 2 yet, but I'm only a lv. 16.
P- Twice the action, twice the excitement, twice the Zero Cool podcast episodes! I wonder if this consumes 2 ammo per shot....
P- Episode 79 of TheFilterPodcast. Found an assault rifle with a high fire rate (9.3 I think) and explosive damage, with a base of 79 damage, She's purty.

C- Last call for FTL! Winner will be picked tomorrow morning and announced in the afternoon. I'm almost done with that daylight badass challenge. The 100 rank one. Awww yeah.

S- Atheos does a great write up about MMO's and how Guild Wars 2 is actually bringing folks together, instead of forcing them to solo like the other games. I like to solo in Borderlands 2. It is more fun with friends though.
C- A discussion on female characters in games, from whatsacow. Lilith is a lady. So is Maya....
C- Lost: One sense of adventure. If found please contact Bigboss0110. I'll check Pandora for it.
E- The Gameslinger is returning to Dtoid. I wonder if those pistols have elemental bonuses?
C- Troy ponders why and how we make characters for games. Are we being real? Is that who we feel, we are? Can I squeeze in at least 2 hours of BL2 before bed?
B- It was Smurfee's BIRFDAY on Sat! Everyone send him hi-res pictures of your junk and someone send him a copy of Borderlands 2, so I can play with him.

T- Project MILITARY (HOO-RAH) discusses why we play the hard stuff. This is not about Borderlands 2.
T- The almighty Holmes, gives us his top 10 things to love about RE6. I think it might be sarcasm. Not sure. Should've wrote about Borderlands 2, Holmes. C'mon now.
T- Elect-Nigma shares his views on the whole DmC thing. Personally, I'm done caring about the mess. I've got a wasteland to explore. Loot to find and a handsome bastard to kill. It's time to hit the Border. *cues up Bon Jovi's Wanted*



A- The amazing work of KodyKoala is back on DTOID! WOOOO, Buy a raffle ticket to win this amazing Hungry Hungry Koopas piece. I'd prefer Hungry Hungry Skaags, but that's just me.

?- This post very good for making horny pizza with babes. I make many rupees from home playing Borderlands 2. You want marry hot Rita penis?
R- There's something going on here. A story of some sort. But we need some more to figure out exactly what's going on ShadauFoot. Also, you should try to work in a Vault Hunter or two. I don't care if they're different games.
C- This one just hits the ground running. No lead-in or explanation really. A little work and this could be a very interesting blog Snoogans. #Borderlands2






BORDERLANDSBORDERLANDSSMElLMYHANDSTHEYSMELLLIKEBORDERLANDSBORDERLANDS! 2. I'm addicted. My cockles are secured in it's grasp. My sub-cockles even. Guess what? I'm out!

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.
