There isn't a lot of console-exclusive content that gets me bothered, even though I don't like it in general, but yesterday a trailer came out that definitely got to me. It's for Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes' Xbox-exclusive Raiden DLC. 

It's a bit silly, but body snatchers & Raiden T-1000 in the Fox engine looks fun as hell. Any Snatcher fans might also recognize the music that kicks in when Kaz says, "body snatchers." 

Why does it bother me? Well, I was planning on getting a PS4 when this game comes out. Now I'll have to play the disgusting 30FPS current-gen Xbox 360 version to play this! Because I'm not getting 2 expensive new consoles just to play as Raiden. At least not any time soon.
Also, I wonder what the context of this is...Raiden in VR? Big Boss in a coma? Something terribly convoluted & rooted in total science fiction? So many questions!

* - dagiarrat opens up and explains exactly why Persona 3 made him shed some tears.

* - FabBlog tells us why the VGX was so fucking bad. God, it was terrible.

* - "Doom was a life-changing work of art." Maxwell Roahrig shares his love for the game, and what it did for him. Happy 20th, Doom!

A - Om Nom On Souls has some very fair criticisms for outspoken anti-sexism gamers. Specifically, Anita Sarkeesian. Also, Elsa's comments enlighten us all.

A - CazTheGuy has a thorough description of the 5 things he wants out of Persona 5.

A - Headless97 takes a risk and plays some old games to find out whether they were actually good at the time, or if they were just bad and he couldn't notice. Check it out and let him know what you think of games past.

P - Crackity Jones & Jackal27 have here episodes 43 & 44 of Pocketoid. They talk about a bunch of games, they both now have Vitas, and Browner2008 does a guest spot! For your ears.



E - StriderHoang gives us the skinny on the Dtoid community's first ever Pokemon X/Y tournament! Check it out to see the rules, the participants, and to sign up.

I - Say hello to UlpoMedia, who's starting a dev blog called "Latte Deconstruction."

N - Reinhold Hoffmann gives us a nice look at Ef-12; a spiritual successor to MUGEN, only based on 3-D fighters. Looks really cool, and is apparently approved for Steam.

T - Andy Stead doesn't really care for Bethesda's newer games. Here's a letter for you, Bethesda.

T - Lucent Beam names her favorite 360 game of the last year...and then decides 2012 had a pretty good game that won't let go :P

V - Swiftly Bearded has a quick how-to for people who want to use their older headsets on the Xbox One. He's even got a quick video for you.

T - Benny Disco has some great ideas in this blog: 5 franchises that Telltale should tell the tales of. A Twin Peaks game from Telltale?? Heaven.

A - BeatBeat has an...uh...interpretation of the VGX, in comic form.

L - Some delicious graphic card press release satire from Zuckerhund. (Not something I thought I would ever type!)

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.
