C-Blogs of 9/8/12 and 9/9/12 + Philgasms


Well hello there folks. I haven't been around a lot this week. Had an incident with a hooker, a fetus, a pack of batteries and some rock salt. Needless to say, things went south. I got some poisonous dancing spiders though! Aren't hookers great?

Ahhhh, love. Always bites me in the ass. Anyways, what have all you folks been doing? Recouping from PAX? Shut up. The rest of you that don't suck, how about you? Besides a wacky (yet heartwarming) adventure, I've been playing the crap out of Amazing Spider-Man. Definitely my favorite Spidey game since 2 (Except those balloons in 2, F*CK THOSE BALLOONS). The swinging is fantastic, especially after you learn to incorporate the zip. Combat is totally a faster, Arkham rip-off. But I quite enjoy it too.

Screw you Ghost, shoulda stayed in Modern Warfare

The one thing that shocked me, was the graphics. Honestly no screenshots do this game justice. It looks great. When the suns out and everything, it's one of the best games I've seen in awhile. No, I'm not kidding. There are a lot of side missions (though they do get repetitive), the voice acting is decent, though the story is not all that great. The main thing is: singing and combat are a load of fun. My only other complaint is the rogues gallery. Not many and those that are there, just feel like a cop out. Still fun to fight, but a cop out given Spidey's huge range of foes. Alright, I want to go play more, so here's some caps, enjoy.

I just wanted to post this one, it made me lol. Carry on.

*- Normally I would fail something like this, but considering what game it was: TOP-EFFIN-SAUCE buddy. You truly are a hero amongst men. Now don't make it a habit.
*- Stephanie K sheds some light on whats been going down with Anita S. since her kickstarter. She has had time to post pretty pics of herself with gaming swag! I'll give her that -_-
*- Ctg867 lays down some truth about that sex game (and some folks views) that just wanted free publicity from Greenlight.

A- Grethiwha begins a series of articles on the top 25 Wii games. Weeeeeee.
A- Part Deuce of Grethiwha's Top 25 Wii games. Deuce is another word for poopy. That's not a slam at this blog, just an observation.

C- McPixel contest is at it's dark hour and you have until I wake up tomorrow (It's just past 12am here) to steal the victory from who I've already chosen. Do you have what it takes? Probably not, it was a really good entry.

C- Twisted Imp slaps his copypasta on our foreheads, but I dig what he's pondering. Can there be a real gaming crossover?
C- Kwamouflage talks about obligations and their role in our lives. I don't dig it, but maybe I took it wrong.
S- Blast73 discusses the journey to become one of the master race.
S- Hamza CTZ Aziz (Because he needs a full name intro :p) tells a nice story about nes games, pizza and the abuse of power. Nice Hamza, real nice.

R- Grethiwha reviews and compares The Last Story and Xenoblade. I haven't played either so I have nothing to add. Instead allow me to present: DANCING SPIDERS! Wait.... whys the cage open....
R- Elect-Nigma reviews Shadow Complex. I miss my 360 soooo bad thinking of that game.
P- Stop Spoilers throws a brief look, at the extended Last of Us demo. I extend my briefs thinking about this game.
N- Stavros the Impaler discovers a Times article on Valves new hardware project. I seriously can't wait for VR porn. Oh man, the look on folks faces when they find me dead, priceless.
T- Pedro's pissed at all the whining and bitching about the Wii U's controller. I'm pissed that he's pissed, about people being pissed. PISS
R- Elect Nigma reviews Darksiders 2. I really need to pick this up finally. For one reason or another, it just fell to the wayside, even though I was anticipating it quite a bit. Sidenote: Sleeping Dogs kicks ass.
D- Bibbly talks about loss at the hands of Zip Disks. REMEMBER THE HORROR!
T- Jinx 01 throws out an awesome counter-point to Pedro's earlier blog. I share all these misgivings myself and seriously Holmes (he's in the comments), what do you know that we don't?

S- Strider pimps his friend Tatto's Prinny sweaters. I want one, but I'm 6'4" and yeah.... don't think a big ole guy like me could pull it off. Also, I married a Prinny once. We had a really dumb kid (ZHP ref).
F- Shaostyle gives another nifty little side scroller vid. I dig these.


Some tasty blogs this weekend folks. Thanks for all the good reads. Now let's get personal for a second. Sit down on my pleather couch. Lay back on those faux-velvet pillows (I ain't rich, suckafish!) and open your.... ears for ole Phil. Really wanting to go pickup Darksiders 2 in the morning, mainly to tide me over until Borderlands 2. I've torn through the other 2 games I have. Something (Sleeping Dogs) has stopped me from getting it so far (Dogs that are not awake) though. I feel that certain roadblock slipping away (The games) and have a hole where those dogs slept (Let my brother borrow it), but there is still a niggle that says not too. I loved the first and was hyped as hell for this one, but am just curious, is my niggle justified? Or am I just tripping and this is a great sequel? Please, let me know. Now if you sexy people will excuse me, I have a city to save. Because I'm lame. *THWIP*

P.S. Anyone see some dancing spiders?

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.


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

-Aporia: Beyond The Valley (Multiple Keys)
-The Witness
-Citadel: Forged With Fire (Multiple Keys)

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.
