LONG BLOG

Cblog recaps of 12/1/17, 12/8/17, and 12/15/17+Where the sidewalk ends

   0

First of all I apologize for this being as late as it is, I'll be setting it to come out yesterday but I wrote it on Sunday. Honestly, normally I would write up something of prodigious girth but as many of you have no doubt noticed the blogs are in a pretty bad way right now. Whether or not some of you will even be able to read this is not known to me, hence me not musing on something else.

Since the day before American Thanksgiving-which is like other thanksgivings but with more freedom and gun violence-the blogs have been loading horrendously slowly or not at all and its made reading them a bit of a mess here or there. That in turn has somewhat lowered the volume of blogs we've been getting and that's why this is a three week recap-that only has about 6 blogs. Its really impacted peoples willingness to write and it saddens me to see. Even my own latest blogs shillposts had people saying they couldn''t access my blog to read it despite wanting to. 

This isn't an accusatory post or anything-merely a statement of affairs and where things stand for the blogs as of now. I'm sure the wheels are turning in the background to figure out whats going on and how to fix it, and I hope they come to their conclusion soon so we the blogs can get back to being in a state of better health.

Onto recaps!

S - Virtua Kazama provides a look into the current state of Virtua Fighter 3tb-a game that came out in 1997 and apparently still has tournaments going on here or there.

S - Virtual Kazama has another one for you, detailing a pro-wrestler who took on the identity of a video game character in order to sell a game and try to make it bigger in the pro-wrestling thing. Because life is a strange thing.

A - Once again Virtua Kazama writes up a little something for Virtua Fighting month, and discusses experiences playing Virtua Fighter 4 and 5.

C - Cedi muses on patreons now backpedaled plans to force supporters to pay the cost that creators used to deal with from their pledges and their own personal musings on starting a patreon or a drip to earn a bit of income from writing blogs while potentially trying to get writing for a site. I find myself in a similar boat-I've considered Patreon to potentially make a dollar or two for a blog and I've also aimed at getting onto Dtoids FP in some capacity, and I have to say that yeah I'm on board with this blogs concerns. It really is distressing to see such a well loved platform make such a huge blunder without even realizing that creators might not want that, and seeing the loss of support a lot of creators have suffered because of this blunder is also distressing. We'll see if Patreon keeps its nose clean going forward, but I'm guessing Drips going to have more steam in the engine at this juncture.

F - With his thoughts on The Last Jedi comes rico, here to share his visions of porgs and also possibly other stuff with you.

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.
