LONG BLOG

Cblog recaps of 1/12/18&1/19/20+A good Hollow Knight is a terrible thing to RUIN

   0

First off, a big thanks to Mario-the person who if I am recalling everything correctly, is the one who fixed the blogs and dtoids performance. Its been so great to actually be able to do recaps and read blogs at leisure, and I'm hoping to start writing new ones now that they'll be able to be read by the seething masses of destructoid. Feels real good. 

I play games, and sometimes I stream them-as noted in one of my earlier recaps I have a new mic so I've tried to get doing that more and last night I finally got around to beating RUINER after dropping it for a while. Despite the story not being particularly well written and it having some obvious twists-as well as that fucking annoying Heavy Cyborg enemy-the game is oozing with that cyberpunk style that makes it so very compelling as well as some pretty good gameplay. Its a great example of how having everything but two aspects of a game can make it be good, and despite its issues I'd heartily reccomend it in the same way that my good friend and fellow scientists-as well as possible serial killer-Amna did. Check it out. 

Also, I beat Hollow Knight recently and while I do have some issues with the game and how it handles itself I very much liked it. Its got some great visuals, great music and the story is fairly interesting as well if a bit too threadbare in certain regards. Its one I'm still chewing on as time goes on, and its one I think I'll overall maintain a good opinion of in the following months. Onto recaps! 

* - Cedi brings us a discussion on the merits of subs and dubs, as well as their downsides and the personal taste they have for either one. And while Cedi is clearly a rival I will someday have to destroy, I rather liked his blog so a topsauce for an enjoyable blog.

S - thejamesshow00 writes up another Friday Flashback, this time looking at that there Bionic Commando from the 80s.

C - Flegma does an interesting blog about some video game music, and the different places it pops up aside from games as well as some of the musics origins.

R - Here with the first part of a game log of 2017 is JoshCo0620 with a good sized blurb about each game that illustrates their thoughts on. Not a bad list-Ryse though is one that reminds me of that game and the wasted potential it embodies, especially given how much cool shit you could set during that time period.

T - Sapato64 explains why they prefer Paladins to Overwatch. For myself neither looks particularly appealing, but to each their own.

S - able to think discusses their efforts to hook up a Sega Trio and gives instructions with images on how to do it yourself if you wanted to. Just makes me appreciate modern day consoles all the more, if I'm being honest.

R - Taterchimps drunk and ready to blog, so he tells us the tale of how he took a chicken carcass and used it to make some relatively good lookin soup.

C - Furrybearpanda writes another blog, and while this one doesn't contain links to an outside blog or seem like it has part chopped off, it does have some issues. The formatting is pretty odd which makes the blog a bit more difficult to read than it should be and it doesn't really explore its topic in depth.

V - PStoid delivers another episode, starring Weslikestacos and Dinosir who are two lovely boys so you should probably consider checking this out.

V - Charles discusses the Links Awakening and Majoras Mask mangas, mostly in a video but with some extrapolation in the blog proper.

V - Charles also discusses the Labo, a new game/toy that I don't get the blinding fury and hate at. Honestly it looks like its probably overpriced and it has some problems, but its not aimed at me and I think it looks like a fun thing for kids for a while.

S - A link to an external blog and an external video with almost nothing to it in terms of actual writing-as a tip it might be better to see about transcribing the interview you linked into an actual blog and make the video embeded on the page.

S - This person has already been talked to by the mods, but just to clarify why its ended up here since it came before that, chopping off part of your blog to force others to go to your website is poor form. It makes it come across like just an attempt to drive traffic to your blog, and given how community focused this place is thats a poor way to approach the blogs.

S - This one links randomly to a site called Boosteria, a place where you buy something called ELO. I assume this ones an ad, so in the bin it goes.

May your fission be binary and your growth forever exponential.

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.
