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

Costume Party

When it comes to October, it's pretty easy to come up with an idea for Bloggers Wanted. Halloween presents a lot of options. People will start playing horror games and marathon scary movies, but then there's the ultimate question for the day itself:

"What am I going to wear?"

Costumes are, after all, at the very heart of Halloween's fun. Whether you're playing a game with a canon character like Lara Croft, Spider-Man or a customized character in Monster Hunter World or an MMO, you're still faced with the question of what are you going to look like. Sometimes you even have stat bonuses to further complicate things, while other games have made it so you can have all the lovely stat bonuses and still make something that looks nice to you. Some folks even take this all huge step further and will realize such costumes for real-life cosplay.

As someone that posts often about Final Fantasy XIV, I have spent countless hours obtaining all kinds of armor, weapons and accessories from various corners of the game and only for the reason of it looking cool. In fact, once I have a job at 50, I feel obligated to give each of my jobs a fanciful glowing weapon before I press forward.

And then I give each job their own little pet sidekick, because I have decided my character is a Disney princess. Then I write macros that give them a blend of super sentai/Sailor Moon transformations because henshin a-go-go, baby!

But, if I'm honest, my one true love in regards to outfits in the game is the Invalician Samurai set, which I got from the Rabanastre raid. The design is pulled right from the Final Fantasy Tactics' art concept of the female samurai and is wonderfully realized.

But sometimes looking good comes at a price, too. I remember my favorite look for my Corsair in Final Fantasy XI required me wearing pants that reduced my movement speed by twenty percent and some of the best stat-based builds in Monster Hunter can make you look silly.

So this month's topic for Bloggers Wanted is costumes. Whether the costume is realized in-game or in real-life, we'd like for you to to discuss your favorite creations or tributes to characters, whether it's a custom look, a canon character or even a character skin like you'd find in Overwatch or Fortnite. You can discuss cosplays you've done, or cosplayers you admire. You can even talk about the plights of stat-based function over fashion.

The sky is the limit on this one, so head on over to our community blogs and get to writing! Use the prompt "Costume party: [Your title here]" and be sure to place "Bloggers Wanted" in the tags!

Now if you'll excuse me, I have get Bayonetta dressed up. She's heard about everyone and everything becoming Princess Peach and she would like to remind the world she was ahead of the curve on that.
