LONG BLOG

C-C-C-C-blogs of 11/21, also starring Striderisms!

   0


I'm hating this week so much.

Amount of hours was the last thing I was concerned with at work. But I have 35 hours this Thanksgiving week. I have 35 hours of work, a lack of feedback on the Fapcast, a disappointing game release, and 8 hours of driving to get through this weekend.

Let's start with the Fapcast. I spent an entire night editing it because we lost a track so I inserted fake voices to hold it up. What do I see for a whole night of devotion? ONE COMMENT. Well fuck, have we plateaued? Because editing this thing takes a lot of personal time. I'd love to use it on other things but nope! I'm using it staring at a screen and mixing audio levels!

Speaking of using time, I'm not used to working 3 days of 7 hour shifts in a row. I phrase it that way because you probably work long hours. But this is a part-time job, so fuck, where does the PART-TIME thing factor in? Jesus Mickey Mouse, you're a slave driver!



So games? I like diving back into BLOPS zombies. It even has rank progression now! But I bought the collector's edition of Adventure Time: Hey Ice King why'd you steal our garbage? I wasn't expecting something great but at least something good. But this? I bought this game yesterday and I beat it today. Probably less than 10 hours. I sat down less than 6 times with the intention of playing it. There are numerous other flaws I can forgive as far as a mediocre game goes. But I felt this length was inexcusable. And all I have now is New Game+. And the Collector's Edition.

Meanwhile, I'm looking forward to getting home and blasting hundreds of zombies after riding the bus across a god forsaken highway. Not to mention score streaks are a pretty ok way of earning our longtime killstreaks. I mean, sentry gun is finally good!

This week has been a little frustrating. I'll probably drive 4 hours to see my girlfriend and just spend the whole sleeping in bed with her, sleeping off this tough as balls week.

Be sure to check out episode 5 of the Fapcast because I don't think anyone caught our community question. I hope episode 6 is easy for once. Or maybe we won't do it. It's been a moody week. Plus I'm going to see my girlfriend Saturday. Do I have time? Historically, no, I don't have time. FOR ANYTHING.

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.
