LONG BLOG

Cblog Recaps of 2/5/14 and POKEBANKISMS

   0



First thing's first, two blogs were criminally upcapped. That's a word right? Still, I don't know how you don't notice a blog unless it magically popped up just as you were posting, but here you go.

AboveUp posted a round of challenges issues to the forum dwelling monstrosoes. The topic? Draw the cover of your favorite games!

Also, I didn't see my blog about Log Horizon get capped. It's an anime about an MMO where the global community of players are trapped in the game's world. Rather then fear death, they face purgatory with in-game immortality.

Now with that out of the way,

Pokebank!

POKEBANK!

POKEBANK!



I finally, finally got some of my most wanted Pokemon transferred over to Pokemon X. Finally, my suicide lead Aerodactyl can begin and my Whimsicott can start a cutesy reign of terror against set up sweepers with a priority boosted Encore. Finally, my previous shinies can roam freely in glorious 3D! Albino Rhyperior! Here we go!

If I can figure out where I wanna put a slow-ass, rock/ground wrecking ball.

Only time will tell how I can make teams to accommodate my new additions but its certainly revitalized my interest in playing Pokemon X again. And if you have anything negative to say about Pokebank, you're free to express your wrong opinions. We're on the Internet to share our opinions no matter how wrong they are. Its a sign of strength and will power really to demonstrate how wrong you are.

I also just switched over from Verizon to T-Mobile using their unique break up promotion where they take care of your early termination fees. It was a great deal as I save money overall on my monthly bill but upgrade to a newer phone and there's no contract service. Finally, I jumped from an iPhone 4 to an iPhone 5s and its nice to experience something a bit more cutting edge every year. I mean, 8GB to 16GB? That's a useful leap for all my downloads.

Well, if you want more caps, here's a taste of how I've been spending some of my idle time since discovering Inside Gaming on Youtube.



In between Inside Gaming, as you'll see from the caps filler pictures, I've been on a One Piece bender, rewatching some of the best fights on Youtube. The only anime worth its longevity currently. Dragonball Z ain't got nothing on this shit.


* - The Hoff examplifies some talented artists who helped him on his projects

* - Poupadopolis reveals unto us a gem of an obscure, Japan only tale called Segagaga, a true love letter to Sega fans before the fall of the Dreamcast and a biting satire of the game industry, at least back then

* - Spielerdad gets all Inception on us and documents his dreams based off of recent experiences and the fact that he plays games. He plans to pop in DOA Xtreme Volleyball soon


M - Jorgy waxes on his time spent on Link's Awakening, a key part of his past

M - Dwayne realizes the cycle of games and the enjoyment he derives out of some of our longest standing choices

A - Where the hell is the interest in a second Dreamcast supposed to be?








R - Starpoint Gemini 2 is only in alpha but it feels like a beta! Fishsticks is a delicious food and a lucky gamer!

N - SAGE stands for Sonic Amatuer Game Expo and Overbound is excited for the next big amateur Sonic game

R - For me, Gravity Rush is something I don't know much about since I don't own a Vita. Troy lets us non-Vitas know exactly what it is

V - Strummbummer compares GTAV to the lyrics of Kanye West








F - Starwolf has a thing and it might be a gender inspecific genitals

F - And he never came back to check on his blog!

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.
