Cblog recaps from March 1, 8 and 15. Life, lateness and libraries.


Hey guys, and welcome once again to the Thursday recap! In case you were wondering where I've been with these, I just started working through Alberta Job Corps, so I've been pretty tired from that after not working for like, 2 years. And THEN I got sick, so that was fun too. But I'm happy to say that I think things are going great so far! It feels nice to be working again, and the people at job corps are super supportive. I finished doing First Aid Training today!

I've also re-discovered that libraries are awesome! I had someone recently enlighten me on how libraries have updated since I last went, so I immediately went to check it out. Ended up borrowing a bunch of movies, games and books. So far I've figured out game wise, that I do not like Elite Dangerous or Rodea the Sky Soldier, and that I like Elex way more than I thought I would. The fact it gives you a jetpack right away is a big plus.

Other than that it's been more of the same. Playing dnd and Magic the Gathering with buddies every week. Getting some Monster Hunter and Warframe in when I can. Looking for sweet deals at the grocery store. That kinda stuff. So now that that's outta the way, let's move onto those recaps I'm behind on!

* - Bass has made us more custom dtoid Magic The Gathering cards! They're awesome! Check em' out!

* - Marcel Hoang aka Strider let's us know his current fav weapons in MHW. He does have a Charge Blade in there, so I guess his opinion is valid. Go check them out and tell him yours!

T - Batman is an inspiration to many, and here Zordan tells us how Batman has colored his views in gaming. Hopefully it didn't involve a tragic origin story.R - taterchimp gives us his thoughts what he likes and dislikes about FF12. I'll give a fast rundown of my thoughts too; Bad=Vaan and Good=Fran
S - We got an interview with Filipino Pro-Wrestler Robin Sane done by JBlaze! I'm not a wrestling guy, but if you are give it a read!

R - Oh man! Kerrik52 has a totally legit real I swear review of Farcry 5 up! What? It's not out yet? I dunno Kerrik is a pretty stand up bro, he would't just make a fake review for fun. Right?

T - 1 year after the Switch's release, Shoggoth2588 give us his thoughts on it and the Wii-U. I still can't afford a Switch myself, but someday...

R - Flegma gives us a blast from the past with an old school review of Yie Ar Kung-Fu, which as it turns out is 3 years older than me! That's crazy!

T - What are you playing right now? JBlaze want to know, and also let us know what he's playing! For me in short; Warframe, MHW, and Elex.

T - IDrawOnTape gives us his tale of woe with his experience with Gamefly. Hopefully it gets better buddy!

V - SquareElite gives us the scoop about SqueEnix's live Final Fantasy XV Alternative Time Report. The video on it is in the cblog, so take a gander!

R - Lord Spencer fill us in on his upcoming plan of Sega Saturn reviews. I'm looking forward to it!

L - We're going on a nostalgia trip with LaTerry, who tells us about one of his childhood book classics "he Transall Saga"! I was library kid myself, but mostly Goosebumps.

L - It's time for dephoenix's Book of the Month! This time we got a NSFW selection called "My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness". Seems self explanatory. Check out his thoughts on it, but not in public!

F - We got a review of the new Tomb Raider movie from Rudorlf. I wonder if they have that part where Lara bites a guys ear off?

? - The Baked Potato let's us know how all the cool kids on his block are getting into Rukus. I think it's a band? The description is kinda lacking and I'm too lazy to google it. Ask him in the comments I guess!

Alright, that catches me up on my recaps. Now I'm going to catch up on some gaming. Or read some Dresden Files. Or make dinner. Or even just chill. Have a great weekend guys, and have a great dtoid bday!

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.
