Hey all.

I was going to write something great here (Riiight, suuure I was) but then I ended up talking to Megastryke on Facebook for an hour. So I think I'll take a page out of SilverDragon's book and just start things off with a couple awesome pictures of a squid.



This thing's called a Vampire Squid. Does that rule, or what? Images came from here.


*-Keep a shot glass full of eye bleach handy for Handy's new feature, Fanart Flops. (NSFW)
*-Help Elsa celebrate her 250th conversion of a thinking, feeling human into so much fender meat.
*-LK404 has some great tips on how to make the most out of your gaming budget.
*-Tubatic's one of the biggest Mega Man fans around, and his predictions for the upcoming Mega Man Universe have me getting excited.


A-Trioptical thinks a recent announcement in M.A.G. is the gaming equivalent of chocolate-covered-bacon-on-a-stick.
A-Enkido and Bluth's Banana Stand have been duking it out in the C blogs regarding how pretend violence and real violence are related. Interesting stuff, but Beyamor's right about the teeny tiny monkey brains.
S- Magnet School's "electives" course causes Elsa to get all alliterative.
M-SAMA1984's Musing looks at the idea of taking a character and all their personality traits from one game to another.
P-Podsumaki recorded episode 9 tonight, all about MORTAAAAL KOMMMBAAAAT!


W-Beyamor's contest post says that in a way, everyone is a winner! But in another, more accurate way, Stevil is the winner.


S-DtoidSF had a great time over the weekend, attending the Final Fantasy concert called Distant Worlds.
B- Happy belated Birthday, Metallion! And thanks for the Apple Pie recipe.


T-LoopyChew has some concerns about the upcoming Power Gig: Rise of the Six String.
T-Though it's months from release, Ninjasnake thinks people are being too hard on BulletStorm.


A-Corduroy Turtle's girlfriend added some awesome artwork to his game-related limericks.
F-Gyrael wrote a beautiful blog about what cinema means to him.
S-BenelliM4 demonstrates a possible reason why Topher used to use the term "Yard Sale" when something was awesome.


C-This isn't formatted very well, and the content gives off a strong whiff of troll. Watch your ass.
C-I'll give ya a pass since the forums are down, but this would really be more appropriate over there.
C-Same deal. I hope the forums come back soon.


F-It's a great song, but it's not a blog.

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.
