Seems Left 4 Dead has been fixed somewhat. Actually was able to make it into a decent server on the first try, unlike Tuesday where we spent 45 minutes trying to get a decent server before giving up. I'm definitely liking the tweaks so far, although I haven't given versus a spin since the update.

Also, among other things I watched a monkey skating today!



*- Unangbangkay like to pay by himself... with others... Awesome writeup
*- MegaStryke reminises about playing video games with his dad. I love how Monthly Musings generally brings out such quality articles
*- Tehmtnlion continues his scary story


S- I'll call it a series at this point. Michiyoyoshiku plays Guilty Gear. Could use more in-depth impressions of the game
S- Latest dTunes, with a very upbeat selection. I like
S- A cool idea, GamingGoddess continues narrating her playthrough of Parasite Eve
S- Mikey draws sick fetishes on demand!


No contests once again, so enjoy this bonus video of bears actually playing hockey. I'm honestly not sure whether I should be amused or horrified, but I do know they need to pull that goalie. He's not even trying to stop anything!



D- Tubatic makes a call for feedback on cblog improvements
C- SurplusGamer sees the light on the benefits of renting games
F- Come out and play some more AMMO beta tomorrow night!
F- Call for a WipeoutHD FNF tourney tomorrow night. Be there!
C- TewDee organizes games he wants to finish/keep playing with his NEW KEYBOARD
I- Nice intro, and she made Daxelman go crazy. I'd say win-win
S- Pendelton21 give a general life/blogging update
E- LAN party recap, and too much energy drinks... I had a NOS once, and it gave me an irregular heartbeat for the rest of the evening...


N- Monster Hunter G news, and a special edition classic controller
N- Gemsi brings us the EU releases for the week
T- Jonathan Holmes wants to know if we think Dtoid is "anti-Wii"
N- Teta links to some Battlefront 3 footage that surprsingly isn't a RickRoll
T- BSD has Kraken-phobia, and also fails for not mentioning the FF1 Kraken...
T- Tubatic outlines why he plays his 360 more than his Wii
R- I'll refrain from calling this a series until #2 comes out. NihonTiger resurrects Bargain Bin Laden... sort of
T- Thoughs on the DS Rumble Pack- OMG THAT'S A SPACE INVADER SNOWBOARDING!!!
N- How the hell is Mario Kart DS on the best selling games of 2008 list? :S
T- Thefil doesn't think anybody else is looking forward to these games


A- A very nice SMB cake^H^H^ oil painting
F- Sorry, but that gunfight looked really stupid...


C- Don't post a teaser with a link elsewhere for the whole article. Only reason this isn't fail is because it might be a good read...
V- Eminem's L4D advice apparently, although I assume he wasn't talking about L4D when he said that
O- History lesson from LaxLuster. The JRPG joke put it over the top for me
R- Something about hand-egg in Rockband. Don't care much for pro sports myself, but it is a nice use of the character creator
L- A Mega64 video that actually made me laugh. Very well done commentary about 1UP/EGM
C- Covah worries about FF release dates, and for some reason mentions fanboys?


F- An oddly coherent "drunken" "clog" full of delicious hypocracy
F- Seriously? More Obama-mania? I just popped a pimple that was more interesting than this (spoiler: it's currently bleeding)
F-Mark Gormley is from Florida, not "Canada's smallest province" dummy... Not a bad song though, even if the video is pretty bad :p
S- LOLFace didn't look just a few blogs down. Slightly redeemed by Droobies failing at trolling
F- Two fail blogs in one day, both buy the same person and both about the same topic... Am I the only one who's sick of hearing about Obama?

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.
