Cblog Recap for 11/15/17 + Thanks be to Games


So we are getting close to the time of year I love most...Thanksgiving (American version 2.0)!  Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  It gives me an excuse to eat way too much without people judging me.  Actually, they are likely still judging me but whatevs.  Anywho, I figured I'd give you all a list of games I'm thankful for to mark the occasion.  Note this isn't a top game list, just games that I am thankful for, for one reason or another


As you can probably tell from my avatar, I'm a huge Limbo fan.  One of my favorites of all time.  Limbo and Inside showed me that more isn't always better.  They are shorter games, with tight gameplay, and the story is told through gameplay.  They are beautifully crafted and it shows what can be done and that some times less is more and for that I am thankful.

Prey 2017

This game was an absolute shock to me.  I got it on a whim because I was bored and man did it deliver.  It is definitely a top GOTY candidate for me.  This game gave me all kinds of freedom to play the game how I wanted.  At a time in my life when I felt like I had no control, it was perfect.  It helped get me through some tough stuff this year and I will forever remember it as that.

A Link to The Past

I won't get in to an argument over what the best Zelda game is (it's A Link to the Past FYI), but I will say that this is the game that set me on a path toward being a gamer.  I fell in love with everything about it and it made me want to play more video games.  It was just perfect to me and remains one of my favorite, if not my favorite games of all time

Perfrct Dark N64

This game is probably the game that I have gotten the most play time out of.  Ever.  I'd hate to guess how many hours were spent playing this with friends.  It is in my opinion one of the best ever FPS.  I loved the ridiculous characters and story and the splirt screen co-op and multiplayer kept me coming back.  This game also introduced me to my best grade school friend I had.  Thanks Perfect Dark!

Knights of the Old Republic

This is quite simple actually.  I love Star Wars and I love video games and this combined the two.  For me this was the best Star Wars game ever.  The quintessential RPG.  Big props to BioWare for making my two loves come together.

So what games are all of you thankful for?  Not necessarily your favorites but ones you are thankful for.  Recap time!

S - ALinkToTheDan is back with more of his Tone Deaf series. It's been a couple weeks but it's worth the wait as he takes a look at the music of Metroid Prime. I must say, some wonderful music

S - Xeo gives us a blog looking at some of the stuff he's been dealing with as of late. A tough year, but he takes solace in our community here. I really like Xeo and am glad he's here with us. I hope things start turn around for such a good guy

D - EvilCoGames gives us a look at the development of their upcoming game project. They are an indie team working on Star Story: The Horizon Escape. It's a nice look at what they are currently working one

D - DinoSir gives a nice look at one of his upcoming projects. He gives a look at SuperSportsball, namely the art direction. From what I am seeing, this looks like it will be a fun game and hopefully a smash hit!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Costume Party

When it comes to October, it's pretty easy to come up with an idea for Bloggers Wanted. Halloween presents a lot of options. People will start playing horror games and marathon scary movies, but then there's the ultimate question for the day itself:

"What am I going to wear?"

Costumes are, after all, at the very heart of Halloween's fun. Whether you're playing a game with a canon character like Lara Croft, Spider-Man or a customized character in Monster Hunter World or an MMO, you're still faced with the question of what are you going to look like. Sometimes you even have stat bonuses to further complicate things, while other games have made it so you can have all the lovely stat bonuses and still make something that looks nice to you. Some folks even take this all huge step further and will realize such costumes for real-life cosplay.

As someone that posts often about Final Fantasy XIV, I have spent countless hours obtaining all kinds of armor, weapons and accessories from various corners of the game and only for the reason of it looking cool. In fact, once I have a job at 50, I feel obligated to give each of my jobs a fanciful glowing weapon before I press forward.

And then I give each job their own little pet sidekick, because I have decided my character is a Disney princess. Then I write macros that give them a blend of super sentai/Sailor Moon transformations because henshin a-go-go, baby!

But, if I'm honest, my one true love in regards to outfits in the game is the Invalician Samurai set, which I got from the Rabanastre raid. The design is pulled right from the Final Fantasy Tactics' art concept of the female samurai and is wonderfully realized.

But sometimes looking good comes at a price, too. I remember my favorite look for my Corsair in Final Fantasy XI required me wearing pants that reduced my movement speed by twenty percent and some of the best stat-based builds in Monster Hunter can make you look silly.

So this month's topic for Bloggers Wanted is costumes. Whether the costume is realized in-game or in real-life, we'd like for you to to discuss your favorite creations or tributes to characters, whether it's a custom look, a canon character or even a character skin like you'd find in Overwatch or Fortnite. You can discuss cosplays you've done, or cosplayers you admire. You can even talk about the plights of stat-based function over fashion.

The sky is the limit on this one, so head on over to our community blogs and get to writing! Use the prompt "Costume party: [Your title here]" and be sure to place "Bloggers Wanted" in the tags!

Now if you'll excuse me, I have get Bayonetta dressed up. She's heard about everyone and everything becoming Princess Peach and she would like to remind the world she was ahead of the curve on that.
