LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 6/26/10 and 6/27/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

After my 10 day hiatus to Los Angeles and E3, Iím back in action recapping the weekend cblogs. I have to tell you that it feels great to be back, but I already miss all the awesome people I met last week during E3. Thereís so much to tell you all about, but unfortunately I donít really have time right now. I do plan on posting a couple of Cblogs to recap my incredible week, as well as to share some pictures of my experiences. Be on the lookout for those sometime this coming week.

I want to send a major shout out to Cadtalfryn for covering my butt while I was away. He did an absolute awesome job handling the weekend recaps. I actually got to meet him at the Scott Pilgrim Dtoid party while I was in LA, and Iím so glad I had the opportunity. Not only did I have a blast hanging out with the guy, he was also nice enough to drive me, Sean Carey, and Andrew Kauz back to our hotel room at the end of the night when we were drunk. We even ran into some trouble with the law on our way back, but Cadtalfryn was able to get out of it without any trouble at all.

I also got to meet a ton of other Dtoiders while I was in LA, including Jim Sterling, Chad Concelmo, Ben Perlee, Hamza, Hollie Bennet, Puppylicks, Technophile, and the list goes on and on and on. There are honestly too many to name here. Like I said, I plan on talking more about my adventures later this week when I get around to posting my E3 blogs. Just know that last week was one of the best weeks of my entire life. Iíll never forget it.

Before I go, let me just rant a second about a new article I posted today on Gamer Limit. The article itself is about 3D gaming on the PS3 and how, after trying it at E3, Iím very disappointed with what Iíve seen so far. The article is a huge success right now, with tons and tons of hits, but the only people whoíve commented are angry Sony fanboys who want to crucify me. I honestly donít know how Jim puts up this kind of shit. Do these people even take the time to read my article? Iím trying to not let it bother me, but after a while it just begins to wear me a bit thin. Ugh, oh well.

Thatís enough about me for one week. Now letís get to your regularly scheduled weekend recaps.

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!

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.
