Cblogs from Feb. 15 and 22!


Hey guys! It's another week, and another recap with me! Did you miss me? Sorry about that, I had some technical difficulties while house sitting one week, was busy last week. But I'd like to give SrChurros a shout out for covering for me last minute when I realized my predicament that first week. You are a bro!

So...House-sitting! It was pretty okay! I played a bunch of Monster Hunter, ate their food and DIDN'T set ANYTHING on fire. Not even once! Especially not those paper napkins when I was figuring out the gas stove. That definitely NEVER happened. And if it ever did happen I would like to point out they would have been immediately put out after a brief millisecond of thinking "Goddammit I actually did set a fire". So everything is fine, and will always be fine.

Anyway! I've been doing pretty swell. Started a employment program this week. I get paid during it and the goal is to have a permanent job by the end of it. Just finished the last orientation day, and on Monday I'll be working at the local sorting facility for Goodwill. So here's hoping this leads to better things, and helps me "get back out there" or whatever that means!

Anyway, enough about me. There's cblogs to recap!

* - We get a touching tale of friendship and comradery from davidjenkins. Why hunt alone when you can hunt together?

R - Xeo gives us the lowdown on what he thinks the the new Secret of Mana remake. Is it good enough to satisfy his fanboy heart?

T - MountainBlade cleaves right to the point on his thoughts on brand recognition in the gaming industry. Short, sweet and to the point definitely give it a read.

T - Here we got a quick blurb from IloveMGS about the TF2 Jungle Inferno update. If you're still playing, be sure to give a read!

F - Wanna get a quick rundown on Triggers new mech anime, Darling in the Franxx? JuIc3 has the goods! PersonallY also like it alot, but be sure to check out what he thinks!

Alright that's it for me! I hope you guys have a great weekend!

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.
