I'll be honest with you, Destructoid... My heart's not in it tonight. I've had a lousy week and the last 24 hours in particular have been a positive cavalcade of unpleasantness. Like any good robot however, I subscribe to the law of the future: You gotta do what you gotta do.



Let's get this over with, shall we? I'm looking forward to taking a shower, crawling into a fetal ball and whimpering for a few hours. My apologies in advance, this will most likely be scourged of the wit and charm I'd like to think I bring to these posts.


*-Genki Jam made me think of a Metal Gear/Shitty Robot Michael Bay Battle Movie crossover, which can never be undone.
*-Vitamin H's Musing looks at the survival horror genre... or does it? Truly, this game is its creators Crowning glory.
*-Megastryke for Editor. Who's with me?
*-Forums are back up! No more BRB.


P-Failcast has produced a podcast which they assure us is NOT about Gurren Lagann. Whatever that is.
S-Goodgamer77's Fake Game Friday was inspired by last week's episode of RFGO! It's a nice idea, I'm sure someone will steal it eventually.
S-Gemsi's EU release list looks a little more promising than the last couple'a weeks.
P-FSA has reached its tenth episode.



Nuthin'. Uh, let's see.

That work for ya? (Tweeted by The Fox Trot guy.)


S-The Toilet Duck takes issue with the WePC ads currently running on Dtoid.
C-Coonskin made some arrangements. CTZ failed at math.
I-Caelas Powdery Cheese Shadowfoot introduced himself. Welcome to Destructoid... I believe you may have overtaken Scary Womanizing Pig Mask in the longest avatar name competition.


N-Grasshopper Studios and XSeed may be parting ways.
N-...Which is Ok, because they confirmed Fragile for a North American release.
N-Which is apparently good news.
N-Flower, Sun and Rain went gold. Delicious copypasta. Rain dude, not Moon.
N- Free DLC is always nice, even better when it's good. In case you hadn't heard, "The Touch" is free for Guitar Hero RIGHT NOW.
T-inFAMOUS has some glitches, same as any other open world game. Aren't we used to this by now?
T-Square's new MMO is codenamed "Rapture." Insert Bioshock joke here.
T-Dragonzigg's E3 predictions.
T-Tubatic, surely you must be aware that John Excrement will be announced in the week leading up to E3.
F-Building a video game canon, week 2.
R-That guy with the long name from above is thinking about trying a new system for game reviews.
R-Haxan's "review" of Zelda: Majora's Mask gets into some serious detail. It's clear he loves the game. My favorite Zeldas have always been the nontraditional ones. MM is about as nontraditional as it gets.
T-Covah is grumpy at Sega's announcement of what amounts to Super Sonic Kart. Not for the reason you might expect, though.
V-Remember that Mega Man 2.5D game trailer that came out a few months ago? Apparently the project has progressed significantly. Capcom, hire Peter Sjostrand. It works for Valve.
T-Nilcam's ponderings pre-E3.
T-PC gaming is looking pretty decent this year.
$-Unreal Tournament 3 will be free on Steam this weekend, and available at a drastically reduced price point.
T-EvilSpants thinks it's a bit odd that the electric urban God carries what is very clearly a Nextel walkie-talkie.


M- Power Glove has an artist list (so far) for Guitar Hero 5.
F-Cowzilla reviewed Drag Me To Hell.
V-Mass Effect 2 dropped a trailer, Covah dropped a pantload.


V-Mr Glider posted a video about a Street Fight and a shrew.
L-Zero Punctuation's "review" of Duke Nukem Forever was spot on. If you haven't seen it yet, I suggest viewing it at your earliest convenience.
V-Something about Persona 3 and a video. What does AMV stand for?
R-Penn Jillette weighed in on the Japanese rape game controversy.
C-Spellcheck, grammar check, and please be aware of the format weirdness from Opera or whatever browser you're using.
V-Substance TV 9 is out.
C- More content, please. Stream of consciousness is fine as long as it doesn't cause the reader to lose theirs.
C-Maybe a picture or a video next time? I appreciate the sentiment, but 2 lines does not a blog post make.


F-This is the wrong way to introduce yourself. Not too late to hide this one.

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.
