Cblogs from Jan.18, 2017! Also hey guys!


Hey guys! It's your new Thursday Recapper, NeoTurbo! I've been on Destructoid a long time, but only really started getting into the community in the past year or so. So I guess I just write some personal life updates here or whatever? Seems neat!

I guess the most recent thing I've done worth talking about is a personal resolution I've made. I've decided that besides Monster Hunter World next week, I'm not going to be purchasing ANYMORE games till I make a decent dent in my current gen backlog. For those who know me this is kinda a big deal.

I've also started to practice my photography more again. I've always hoped to one day be a professional photographer and last week a friend of mine was nice enough to let me practice some indoor portrait lighting. Don't really have it down yet, but I at least can tell what I'm doing wrong.

Finally, I guess I'll fill you in on my weekend plans, it's MTG themed kinda! Saturday is my groups weekly(ish) kitchen table Magic night (which I've made a new EDH deck for). Following that I'm going to a Magic the Gathering Unstable draft on Sunday! Other than that I'm planning on relearning Charge Blade in the Monster Hunter World beta and playing some more Warframe.

Phew, that went on awhile didn't it? Sorry about that, lets get on with the reason your actually here!

S - Here we have Dr Mel and Ep.3 of his Resident Evil 2 Wordplay. Learning the History of words with zombies!? Seems like good Edu-tainment to me.

P - Cool dude Jinx 01 let's us know what he's most looking forward to being released this year. I won't spoil them all, but I gotta say I now have at least 3 more games on my radar now. Also Dead Cells is awesome and you guys should play it!

T - Slatan Slatanek gives us his Labo-rious thoughts on Nintendo's surprise announcement. Plenty of thrills, laughs and good vibes so you won't get (card)bored!

N - Shoggoth2588 gives us his rundown on his Top and Bottom 3 Bloodborne bosses! I can't say I agree on all counts, but more Bloodborne to read about is always a plus. But let's just say a certain Lady and me are slightly sad. <_<

T - Fellow Warframe buddy Dwavenhobble gives us his thoughts on the various horrible things that happened last year. Sometimes we gotta look to the past to avoid those problems in the future!

T - Spazzh20 has a list of his top 10 hidden gems of the 7th console generation. Full of surprises, and a No.1 that I can definitely agree with!

F - Furrybearpanda tells us what he thinks about Early Man, a Wallace and Gromit style claymation movie. Full of feminism, football, and feathered friends! (Or maybe not, who am I too miss out on alteration) Anyway, takes a look see to see what he thinks of it!

L - Worried about your youngsters learning "toxic behavior" online? According to Riobux, Nintendo is on the case! Finally, someone did thing of the children.

Alright! This has been my first Recap! I hope you guys liked it!

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.
