LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 09/17/13 + Wrench's big launch day

   0


Was everybody as excited as I was today? The big launch that we've all been waiting for, finally here!

MECHWARRIOR ONLINE IS NO LONGER IN BETA!!!!!11!1!

Cue the sad trombones.



Yes, of all the days for MWO to limp onto the official scene and line up, firing squad style, for the inevitable volley of mediocre reviews, they chose to do it on what the day that what is arguably the last big game of this generation hit the streets.

Sheer. Utter. Madness.

So yeah, long story short:

GTAV is great. It takes everything you like about the series, ratchets it up, while cutting a lot of what was holding it back.

- MWO's launch is nothing more than them peeling off the beta sticker. Seriously, no new modes, U.I, community warfare, or any of the other malarkey they've been promising for over a year now. Again, someday industry heads will use MWO as a cautionary tale, a spook story about a studio that managed to strangle their golden goose and somehow managed to alienate a fanbase that had a worse case of Stockholm syndrome than Patty Hearse.

That's it for me, I've got banks to rob.

* - Some might say it's slightly too early for Halloween-esq spooookiness. But they're just wound up because ghosts are haunting their buttholes.

* - I never knew Digimon was so scatologically obsessed.

* - Resident Evil 1 might look laughable by today's standards, but not so long ago, it sent an entire generation of gamers scurrying under their covers in fear.

A - And with another GTA release, we have another slew of sensational headlines. You could set your watch by it.

A - Tick, tock, tick, tock.

A - The Suffering was never a game I got into, but DustinThomas sure has some fond memories for the series.

A - Apes in wrap-around sunglasses. How can you not love that?

S - I didn't understand anything from this blog or the accompanying video, but I guess this is some kind of crazy challenge run like 4 White Mages in Final Fantasy, so good on em. Didn't see any of those poop monsters make an appearance either.



- You can totally get Max's terrible parrot shirt in GTA V! So I shaved Mike bald, gave him a penance beard plus aviators of shame, and enjoyed playing as a grumpy, slightly overweight, middle-aged burnout again!
T - Taking time between bong rips to complain about GTA's driving.

C - I hate "blogs" that are just another place for someone to hock their Youtube reel.

S - Even lazier than normal, couldn't be bothered to embed his spam.


- I'm sorely tempted to get this shirt in real life, but I also have to weight the very real possibility of my girlfriend dumping me because of it.

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.
