Cblog recaps 11/09/08 +Randombullisms


I'm so angry and frustrated. I got Fallout 3 for until Sunday night. I've yet to receive an important phone call. My free time has been going less and less towards Bonerquest. I'm getting close to sending out a test version to people. Not set in stone, but maybe next week some people can test play it for me. I must warn you, that test will be more about looking for bugs and glitches, spelling errors, and making sure enemies don't murder you. I also want to see how the testers react to the game. Bonerquest is probably not suited for anyone who doesn't laugh at scatological humor or someone that doesn't like video games. I'm curious to get a reaction from people. I will say that the boss enemies and monsters I showed off have gotten strong reactions. Again, don't want to show off everything at once. You gotta play the game to see it all.

Will you accept the Bonerquest?

Look for a full post from me about it soon with more screen shots and information.

*- The 8-Bit water pipe makes me smile. No matter how much I've seen it.
*- A Zombies Bite... (write up about zombie bites in Resdient Evil not turning you into a zombie.)
*- Big post about never being satisfied with Sonic The Hedgehog. I couldn't read it all and thought "I'll pick it. That's the nice thing to do." So if you want to read about Sonic, go ahead. This also has a "part 1" attached, so I assume there are more parts.
*- This post is in response to a kotaku article, I think. The length of this one made me actually groan out loud. It is late at night, I want to play Fallout 3, and I have about four more posts to recap. Do any other recappers read all these posts or just skim them with a good once over?

A- Altered Beets has a thrd game idea: Kari's Kleanomat.
A- Excuses Developers use for avoiding the wii.
A- First time through Final Fantasy III (VI) Intermission.
A- World War One 2 This Time It's Personal.

C- Beard contest canceled apparently.
C- Dance contest *Contest*
C- Custom Katamari shirt + win your own.
E- Nintendoll Blitz II The League Entry.
E- Jacked up contest entry. (another Blitz II entry, I think.)
V- Vitalle is back with a message contest video.

?- Infinity's End selling some games. Final Fantasy VII, Phantasy Star Online Complete, Rockman & Forte, Virtual On Ontario Tangram. They are also selling We Ski. This goes under community, I guess.
FrogMan has a Joust T-shirt for sale. Hand printed by robit studios.
E- SOCOM Dtoid Clan needs (or maybe needed) you tonight.

I- XxBloodFaceXx joins Destructoid and made a post about it. In a comment about the X's they say "its not to be cool or scary or hardcore, there just there ok? cant you morons just deal with it?" Welcome to Destructoid!
B- SilverDragon1979 posts why their 29th B-Day was the most memorable ever.

N- From Pedro Blandino comes a post about Dr. Light being playable Street Fighter IV? Destructoid's editor in chief comments "This is actually kind of old; it may have just appeared in the new Famitsu, but this in a book that Capcom had distributed at this year's TGS. I actually just threw mine out. :-/ But I don't think Dr. Light will be in Street Fighter. I'll eat my words if I'm wrong, though!"
N- Something about a new Tomb Raider.
N- Pc Splitscreen in Left 4 Dead on PC.
N- Interview with Marcus Fenix (and Bender on Futurama) voice actor.
T- A post about Gears of War 2. It says 24 hours of gears 2, so I'm not sure if I missed something or what.
T- Mortal Kombat vs DC Don't Blame Ed.
T- Nintendo Purple. Short post about purple nintendo consoles.
T- Surplus Gamer writes about their new PS3 first impressions.
T- Unstoppable Juggernaut posts Tomb Raider Underworld demo impressions since they can't afford real games right now.
T- DeadHead8 writes their NXE beta impressions.
T- Choices choices choices. Gabe Sylar can't decide what to buy.
T-unstoppablejuggernaut says F*ck GOW2, Ive got Mirrors Edge time trial code!

A- A post about a popular vampire book and movie, Twlight.
C- A post about cosplay characters. Used the word Fandomania.
F- Cosby Movie month with Genki JAM. 100% more Thundercats, Fat Albert, Kenan & Kel, and Pokemon.

V- Something about quitting making videos, then they mention at the end they are going to keep making videos.
?- Why do Stephen Spielberg and Will Smith want to do a remake of the movie Oldboy? Michiyoyoshiku posts about it saying "Steven Speilberg wants to anally rape a beloved korean classic."

F- Really bad joke from a friend. Somehow also excuses Naim Master for not being in FNF, I guess?

If you want to play the Call of Duty World at War beta with me tonight (yes, late night/early morning is acceptable) or tomorrow add me, message me, whatever. I use randombullseye as my gamer whatever on xbox live, so if you want to do that, ask me and I might play with you. Hopefully that last's throughout monday as well as tomorrow. I'm trying to play it and play my rented Fallout 3. I'm leaning towards keeping Fallout 3 an extra week to finish it up, but that means I might not buy it goes down in price. If you want my opinion on it, it's a great game. I really am liking it a lot. If I find myself with an extra sixty bucks, this would be worth buying. Might do it just to play through it a couple more times. So much to see, so much to do. What's really creepy is that I've been to D.C. and some of this stuff looks familiar. Not exactly to scale, but the metro tunnels look enough like the metro to give me a bit of a chill.

We should seriously start recaps at noon instead of midnight.

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.


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.
