Cblog recaps - 11/16/08 + Randombullisms

   0

Hey guys. I played Fallout 3 for two weeks. In the pursuit of a job as a games journalism work, I wrote a Fallout 3 review. I pointed out some problems I had with it and my experiences with the game. I've got a lot of stuff written out and nearly finished for the cblogs. Old school games returns! With a new name! Hooray! Everyday this week I'll have a new post! Also this week I'll post a review of Conan on xbox 360! If I can finish the game and my review that is.

Also Tuesday is the day I want to finish Bonerquest! I'm going to try to spend all day working on it and hopefully get it done. I've selected a handful of people to test the game. I tried to pick people that I knew better than others that were a little more responsible and honest. I don't want Bonerquest to be insanely difficult or a complete cake walk. Also have to find out if the game is too crazy. Sorry to those of you that wanted to try it out first. It isn't quite ready yet for everyone to try out, but maybe soon.

Have to hook up the playstation one this week some replays. Megaman 8, we meet again! I'm going to put off buying any new games until next week. I also have to avoid putting Final Fantasy Tactics anywhere near my playstation. I don't have 200 hours to spend getting calculators again.

I want to switch to Mondays from the weekends. Also recappers please, please use the final post of the day option. I hate having to decipher what was recapped and what wasn't. I just had to guess today and I got confused and thought there were only five posts yesterday. So yeah. Pretty please with sugar on top post the final post of the day. If not here than in the recap thing. Even if I can never figure out my login information I still get e-mails telling me what gets posted. If that's okay with the recap team. My schedule has changed and this week I'm in a position so that I could do the Monday night recap. So just hit me with a private message or an e-mail.

Other then that, if you guys catch me on live I'm up for playing stuff anytime. Just ask. Still haven't found someone to play Marvel Ultimate Alliance with. Okay, that's it for me.

Any errors in tonight's recap, grammatical, typographical, or bbcodde, I will fix later this morning. Hopefully.

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.
