Cblog Recaps of 5/31/17 + You Made Me Do This.....



 Greenhornet214 asked the community whether they thought a hot dog qualified as a sandwich.  Much to my chagrin, many of you ignorant fools said, “no”.  Sure, I could have just said, “lets agree to disagree”, but I was raised better than that!  I decided to dig deeper in the pursuit of justice….

Apparently, the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (Holy fuck!  This is a real thing?!?) ruled that hot dogs were not sandwiches a few years ago.  However, we can hardly trust THOSE people!  That’s like asking Hasbro if their 12” G.I. Joe toys were actually just Barbie dolls for boys!  (“They’re not dolls!  They’re ACTION FIGURES!”)  These people have a vested interest in how the public perceives their products.  We can’t rely on THEM to tell us the truth!  That’s where I, DeadMoon, come in to the picture.

In order to get to the bottom of this once and for all, I have eaten nothing but hot dogs for the past 24hrs.  This was especially problematic because I have pretty bad IBS, AND I’ve actually been experiencing acid reflux (for the first time in my life) over the past week.  Did I really need to put myself through all of this just for the sake of a stupid internet debate?!?  No, but I’m just that dedicated!!!

The first thing worth pointing out is that a hot dog is basically just a submarine sandwich.  It’s a tube shaped piece of bread with meat and some other things stuffed inside.  There are restaurants who cut the bread into two separate pieces, and there are those who only cut a wedge into the bread.  Regardless of how it is cut, IT IS STILL A SUBMARINE SANDWICH!  (The key word here is “sandwich”…)  Thus, the slicing of the bread is a non-issue as far as sandwich categorization goes.

Let’s take a look at some pictures…..


We can all agree that this is a hot dog.


How about now?


Dear God, what have I done?!?


But what if you change the breading?


Here we have a relatively unassuming sandwich…


Or do we?!?


What if we add ketchup?


It still tastes like a hot dog….


Now don’t get me wrong.  Hot dogs are absolutely fucking disgusting!  Until yesterday, I hadn’t eaten one in years.  Right now my body hurts, my asshole hurts, and I’ve literally got stomach acid moving up and down my throat!  Was it worth it, you ask?  Fuck yeah it was because A HOT DOG IS A MOTHERFUCKING SANDWICH!!! 


[This Moonism has been dedicated to GajKnight.  His passion for discussing all things related to hot dogs and their categorization as sandwiches goes unrivaled among the Destructoid community.]

* - After the Destructoid community banded together for the common cause of giving JcDent a second chance, Robo Panda Z finally freed him from his shackles! I genuinely never thought I would see this day, and it's kind of fucking beautiful...

 * - Dere attempts to make me cry with his tales of brotherly love, and damn near succeeds..... 

 A - Charlotte Cutts speaks about personal connections to Futaba's storyline in Persona 5. Unfortunately, there are some spoilers, so I had to stop reading. I still haven't made it far enough in the game for her character to be introduced! Life is tough when you have to choose between Persona 5 and Mario Kart...

C - Destructoid is giving away a Nintendo Switch! 

C - Greenhornet214 has got some shit on his mind, and he lays it all out there for the world to see.

T - GWJosh is a bit fed up with grinding in video games and thinks it can lead to needlessly inflated difficulty levels in some instances.

R - PCConsole reviews Far Cry 4.  

T - thejamesshow00 talks a bit about the game It's Mr. Pants for the Game Boy Advance.

Hot dogs are sandwiches...


The JcDent thing technically isn't a Cblog, and it also didn't happen on Wednesday.  I play fast and hard with the rules!  Unfortunately, that also means I'm going to have to give myself the dreaded Failtoid.

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.
