LONG BLOG

Good evening to you, Destructoid. I apologize if I'm a bit terse tonight, I'm sick with some sort of summer cold. It's always a little strange being stuffed up while the weather outside is so nice, but hell, I guess it's good to have an excuse to stay inside all day. It kinda sucks when you're sick enough to feel bad but not sick enough to take time off from work. My doctor hasn't been all that helpful...

Anyway. On to the recaps, shall we?


*-Discarded Couch Sandwich wrote passionately and at length about one of the many GBA games that time seems to have forgotten: Kuru Kuru Kururin.
*-Garison is a pretty cool guy eh mails cheez games to Australia and doesn't afraid of anything.
*-I'm not entirely certain what I read just now, but I enjoyed it. SephirothX IS THE LAW.


A-Cadtalfryn examined the casual vs. core stuff with a pretty clear head.
S-Gemsi's EU release list features improved waggle.
A-Cwal37 considers the declining use of the adjective "killer" when applied to video games.


Nada.
In honor of all the Left 4 Dead stuff today, here's the Indian version of Thriller.

If you want the "english lyrics," click here.



I-StonedFox offers to buy everyone a drink. Listerine on the rocks here, please. Welcome to Destructoid.
I-And a pretty basic introduction by Thornack. Welcome to Destructoid.

T-Dragonzigg did a postmortem of his E3 predictions.
R-BlurryPhoenix reviewed Punch-Out!! for the Wii.
T-Secret Cow enjoyed Spore a whole lot more than I did. The new expansion does look interesting though, I admit.
N-NihonTiger90 brings a trailer for Backbreaker to the forefront. It's an unrealistic sports game... let's hope it's better than NFL Street.
V-Project Natal is apparently far enough along to debut on the late night talk-show circuit.

T-TheMizarkShow had some final thoughts on the new motion tech that came out of E3.

$-Amazon's Gold Box special for today was a PS3 for under $400. Nice find, Crunshii.

R-WanderingPixel wrote a script for a one-act play about how games are born.
V- DreRox paired the new Forza trailer with a Kanye West song. The result is surprisingly fluid.

V-Trev found this wall-breaking video showing how the Nuke scene in Killzone 2 was set up.
?-ZippyDuDa is adding some folks on PSN and had some thoughts about failblogs.
?-AngryEmoGirl may wish to consider cutting down on the caffiene suppositories.

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.
