C Blogs of 12/16/13 + mcgeeisms + A REMINDER

Two weeks in a row! That feels better. I hate not being around my community as much as I should be. Especially since last month saw my Dtoid run come into its...7th year?!? That can't be right. No...it is! Whoa. 7 years I've been lurking in the shadows of this internet space. The Destructoid videogame blogocube. Y'all make it pretty interesting, so thank you <3
Incidentally, I should be featured for a community interview soon if anyone is actually interested.

Speaking of community projects, I need to take a moment to remind you all that the Recaps team is in fact doing another 'best of' community blogs for 2013. It's huge undertaking that eats tons of time, so I'm asking you all to please speak up if you can think of a blog/blogger that should be highlighted. If you connected with something for any reason, let us know and we'll give it a look. If you think something got overlooked, tell us! If you think someone is simply rad and should get a spotlight, shout it from the mountain tops.

PM this account or contact any of the Recap team if you've got suggestions. Some of this stuff will get another shot at the FP as well as being featured in our special blog. (and really, don't hesitate to bother Andy Dixon if you think something should be considered for the FP, from any time.)

ReCAPS for yo ass.


* - SpielerDad loves cookies, booze and useless shit for Christmas. This man speaks the gospel. Check out his great blog featuring the top 10 useless gifts for gamers during Xmas. Also, bonus video of his super cute daughter. OMG!

* - Zuckerhund was clearly as broken as I was after viewing the beast known as VGX. And he's probably watched some of the clips more than once. Read part 4 (the final) and join The Gibbering in their moonlust.

A - Trev, as head of Playstation FNF, has heeded his title and kept up with the PS brand. I mean he got a PS4, and gives a detailed first impression of it. The UI sounds like a nightmare...read for yourself.

M - RenaudB90 gets to number 4 in his best 8 games of the generation. It's also his GOTY for 2013. He's put about...212 hours into it so far. Holy hell. Check it out to see what it is!

A - Joeshadowman lays out how he thinks the game industry should be, and how all shaped it into what it is.


Leave a comment down there and you can have a code for Windborne or a closed beta key for Infinite Crisis. Your choice. Cus that's how we roll.
I - Say hello to Wrath and Pride! You've probably seen him around plenty, but he finally made an intro blog.

H - mistic is making some good progress on Teh Lair V2.0. NARPs in teh future!

N - Retrofraction brings us the news that Legend of Dungeon got updated with 3 new modes. including a daily challenge! I agree that those sort of things are going to make Roguelikes more & more popular, especially with the LP crowd.

A - BeatBeat gets deep in this installment of Comictoid.

C - Jake Petersen has a nice cross-post from his site about the future of first-person-shooters. Could take a second look at the formatting, though, instead of just copypasta.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
New Years Evil

So for this month's prompt, we should look to our best examples of scum and villainy. Talk about your favorite antagonists, villains, bad guys, and malcontents and why you like them so much. Certainly not because you want to be like them since the powers of law and order are probably keeping a close and watchful eye on us. But you know, hypothetically, if I were to recommend my own personal favorite villain, it might be Manfred Von Karma from Ace Attorney. The guy is irredeemably terrible, believing in not just results no matter the cost, but also a total disdain for nearly everyone around him since they most likely aren't as perfect as him.

For January's bloggers wanted prompt, just create a new community blog, start the title with "New Year's evil: [your blog title here]" and tell us about your favorite villains.

From the terrible like Flowey, to forces of nature like Gigyas. Go ham! We won't judge you since we're talking in hypotheticals. As long as we're talking about bad guys since Yoshikage Kira wasn't bad. Kira just wanted to live a peaceful life. He just happened to be a serial killer, you know?
