LONG BLOG

C-blogs of 3-26-09 and Qalamarisms

   0


Salutations, mechanoids. I trust your Thursday was pleasant? Mine went fairly well. I picked up LittleBigPlanet during the sale at GoGamer and it came yesterday. While I have certainly enjoyed what I've played of it, it's not enough to draw me out of the Capitol Wasteland for the time being. I do have a question I hope someone can help me with, though. I've been downloading all of the free Sackboy costumes in anticipation of buying the game, but I'm not seeing them in my Poppit anywhere. Do I have to play through a certain amount of the game to unlock them or something? Also-- if you've made a level, let me know; I'd love to try it out. My PSN name is Qalamari.


Even Sackboy is not immune to the insidious effects of fail.

Anyway. Lots of good blogs today. Please take note of Bwark-Kupo's contest on the sidebar there, it's been extended until April Fool's day.


*-I enjoyed it, but I didn't understand everything in this post. I'm gonna blame the accent.
*-Freefall gets a weight off of his shoulders by confessing to some minor gaming sins. God forgives you. Go forth, say 25 Hail Marios and sin no more.
*-Mr. Destructoid sent us all this postcard of himself on Miami beach with some limey lovelies.
*-Zodiac Eclipse wrote a nice little think piece about Entropia (MMO developer) and their move to legitimize in-game currency.


S-Agonofinis begins a new series about literacy called S.H.A.F.T. I like this guy already.
S-Gemsi always lets the EU gamers know what's up on Thursdays.
A-Discarded Couch Sandwich's blog was a flareup in the Wii flamewar that's been ongoing the last week or so. Still... great name, and a pretty good blog.
S- Dimly's Power Trip series takes a look at Guitar Hero's Star Power.


C-Is this a contest? Not really sure. Bwark-Kupo wants you to show off your hats. Word of warning: mine's better than all y'all's.
C-Bwark-Kupo is also holding a contest to win $20 worth of Microsoft's moon money or a Protoman figure, and it's been extended due to some family concerns.


I-Third time's the charm as de BLOO introduces himself properly. Welcome to Destructoid.
R-Been a while since we've had an R.I.P. My condolences, Dexter.


N-Hideo Kojima's keynote address at the Game Developer's conference got Pascuz thinking about what Metal Gear Solid 5 might end up like.
V-PanzerDrako thinks Atlus thinks he's a pervert. The video he posted of Super Robot Taisen etc etc etc reminded me of getting my ass kicked in Killer Instinct. ULTRAAAAA COMBOOOOOOO!
V-The Reborn posted the leaked God of War 3 shakycam footage. If making a 20-foot cyclops ram his way through a horde of enemies while blinded with rage and pain is wrong, I have no interest in your concepts of morality, sir.
R-Styles B LKV reviewed Legends of Wrestlemania. He could probably use some pointers on controller hygiene.
T-Magnalon wrote a bit about one of the best licensed games ever made. I think I may just fire up my NES once I'm done with the recaps.
T-JusticeDude did not enjoy the unsolicited intimacy (read, rape) he received upon signing in to XBox LIve Arcade.
T-Haxan is willing to forgive and forget what Nintendid.
R-Ckarasu wrote 9999 levels worth of words in this epic 3-game Disgaea showdown.
T-Tubatic has been obsessing over the notes in Fable 2. In my opinion, one of the marks of a good game is that you think about it while you're doing other stuff.
T-NihonTiger thinks Nintendo's announcement of Virtual Console Arcade might allow for something more than what they've so far revealed.


A-GrumpyTurtle continues to impress with his near-daily doodles depicting the secret lives of your favorite game characters.
L-Vexed Alex did some comic reviews for Wormwood and Fell. The artwork on display here is beautiful.
S-JT706 alerts the masses to the existence of an ugly-but-awesome gamer shirt from Shirt.Woot.


L-Sorny Austrailia shood reallly consentrate onn howw theyy speel in there adds.
R-Kitae mocked one James Sterling about her location relative to his own. Bad form, m'dear. Funny, but bad form.
C-GoP Scarecrow posted a link about a WoW box that's been signed by the designers, I think. I didn't want to copy the URL in case he was selling my information to a gold spammer.
?-This is a highly technical, step-by-step guide on how to avoid the Zune's DRM restrictions. They still make Zunes?
R-ThisisSami had a question about the PS3's Gaia visualizer.


F-You didn't really think this out, did you?
F-PUT SHOE ON HEAD. FAKE SHOE ON FAKE HEAD. FAKE HEAD LIKE REAL HEAD BUT NO A THING INSIDE.
F-Despite the last caption, I'm not really a fan of the 4chan lifestyle.



And now for the nightly video.

Scary Womanizing Pig Mask should like this one.

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.
