Cblog recaps 11/23/08 + Randombullisms

   0

Dependable old weekend recaps on a Monday morning. Who doesn't love that? Sorry about my attitude yesterday I was running late that morning, I had worked a full shift the day before, and was trying to get all my stuff together. It isn't exactly easy putting these things together, and I apologize for not being able to post this last night.

About to play a few rounds of Call of Duty 4 then finish up a review I'm writing for another game. Still putting off hooking my playstation one up.

And here you go, your starting line up on the Destructoid recaps! YAL READY FOR THIS DOO DOO DEET DEET DOO DOO DEET. DUNT DUNT DUNT DUH! YAL READY FOR THIS!?


*- Free Dr. Pepper. I didn't sign up but was aware of this. Oh well.
*- All I saw was "Mother F- Nintendo" and I knew this post should be put in the top picks. I've imagined this to be a hilarious post about how angry this poster is at Nintendo. I can't wait to read it later.


A- Someone is organizing what they want to write on their blog. Good luck.
A- Something about a toilet and video games.
M- Monthly Musing: Banjo Kazooie
S- Castlevania 2 from Random Select series.
S- Mega Man 7 from Random Select series.




D- A long time member has a death in his family. Everyone put him in your prayers.
D- Another Destructoid member is dealing with a death in the family. Again, our prayers go out to you in your time of grief.
E- Miami Narp
E- Another Miami Narp post. Also possible Gears 2 spoilers, if I find out that what they said is in the game, I will probably not care.
E- A third post about the Miami Narp. I won't read this one, that last one told me way more than I ever wanted to know.
I- A new members introduction post. Welcome to Destructoid, I love you.
?- Miss Jim all you want, he's American now. I for one would like to welcome our new english overlord.


R- A Gears 2 review.
R- Another gears 2 review.
S- Short blog about gears 2.
T- Fallout 3 Disappointments
T- Another Nintendo post. From the opening lines, it implies they're angry. It helps that I read everything this poster writes like a cartoon parody of the X-men.
T- It says Spoiler Free thoughts on Fable 2, but I won't risk reading about it at all.
V- A posters little brother made a half life 2 video.
V- Chrono Trigger video advertisements.
?- Something about Pokemon
?- Something about Game Informer
?- This member wants to play Left 4 Dead once a week.
?- Something about the Zune playing games.


A- Art dump.
A- Gamer arts and crafts sale
A- Game charms. Also as far as I can tell this is a new member, so welcome to Destructoid! Also according to the comments and context clues on their profile, their a female gamer. No pictures of themselves. No plugs over and over for other websites they write on. More girls should post like this.


F- Post about Old Boy with WILL SMITH.
N- Someone killed them self on a web cam. A destructoid member writes some reactions. Comments aren't bad to read either.
?- Podcast needs someone else. I guess this goes in other.


No fail on Sunday. Just like hard liquor.

My avatar is evolving...

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.
