Cblog Recaps of 5/04/18, 5/11/18, 5/18/18+Movin on, from the land of the corn

   0

Its weird. You build up a life in a place, you learn the best roads and the best places to eat, where to get drinks and where to get lattes. You map out a city in your mind as you live in it and then one day you decide to leave and you know deep down you're never coming back. This is where I find myself now, as I will be moving out of the Iowa place and into a different, far prettier midwest state for a new job. Instead of vaccines I'll be growing up oodles of bacteria to make probiotics, destined for a new town that is a lot bigger than the one I leave behind. I can't say I'm much bothered by anything aside from the inconvinience of moving and learning a new job-while I like a fair few of my coworkers it was never a place that I found I really connected with anyone at, and the job was doing nothing to feed my brain or ambitions aside from getting experience to get into better things. Still its hard to leave a place you don't hate in some ways. However I do think I'll be moving onto bigger and brighter things, and hopefully as of next year the sweet tentacles of academia will envelop me once more. After two years I'm ready to move on and I'm ready to get moving towards something better. 

Now onto recaps, with 100% irrelevant images! 

A - Dwavenhobble writes a blog about why Singleplayer isn't dead. Presumably this is something of a response to the whole "Single Player games are dead" thing that honestly is a topic that grows somewhat tiresome to me to see come up over and over again as if its a new revelation. Every couple of years people muse on whether or not SP is dying, and every time its easy to point at several games that make it obvious its not.

T - Local Warframe-Pusher Neoturbo writes up a blog about Warframes newest update and what it adds, so go check that out if you are at all curious about what the deal there is.

R - JcDent writes up some thoughts on that there PoE: II. Sounds like a good time, I might check it out at some point for I do like CRPGs, and Obsidians writing even if they made the worse of the two Fallout games of the pre Fallout 4 era. Fight me.

R - VVerner Herrzawgz writes up a blog about Azure Strike Gunvolt and how they eventually grew bored with it, leading into a discussion about RPG stuff. Some food for thought, if you're interested in such things.

C - This blogs mostly just somewhat confusing and it doesn't really say much aside from a weird pitch for a game and a link to a russian blog.

S - U MAD BRO

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.
