Three caps in a row, plus dealing with a sick family, plus yet another weekend of graveyard shifts?

Pure. Machine.

I recently posted a contest where you could draw some horrible looking food related abomination to win a copy of Shadowrun Returns. Just want to say thanks to everyone who entered; there were only, like, three of you, but it was fun all the same. Here is the winning picture, the lucky creator (Brutal2d) of which received his copy of the game yesterday, even in the face of the apparently game breaking patch that a lot of people have been struggling with. Hope it works out okay, pal, because it really is a fun game; I got my game working again this morning after deleting a particularly finicky piece of user generated content. I should also amend yesterdays caps by saying that it wasn't Life on a Limb I was playing and disliking before, it was A Lost Lamb. Life on a Limb, despite pushing the limitations of the software by having abnormally large maps with lots of things going on in them, is actually a lot of fun, and is quite difficult to boot.



Speaking of games no one else really cares about, I put ten hours into Time and Eternity before calling it quits. I have played a lot of shit RPG's in my time, with at least a handful of those being published by NiS, but this was by far the worst. I traded up for Ar Tonelico Qoga, which in comparison, is like Final Fantasy VI had a baby with Chrono Trigger, even though it too is just average on its own. Nevermind how embaressing it is to play a game in front of your wife where the main mechanic in battle is girls literally stripping to "get more power somehow" or whatever; but I have kind of come to accept that kind of dumb horseshit from the genre at this point, whether I like it or not.

Anyways, I'm feeling under the weather, so I wanna get these bad boys done. There aren't too many of them today, fortunately. Have a good week everyone!

* - Honathan Jolmes is a hard working man. Check out his audio review of Pikmin 3, and more importantly, enter to win a pair of Teenage Pokemon underwear featuring everyones favorite degenerate, Ditto! (I honestly typed his name wrong as a total mistake, leaving it the way it is for the ridiculousness of it.)

P - Episode 17 of the Scary Granules podcast. There are enough podcasts around these days that no one should have to be bored at their terrible night job in a warehouse where Christmas music occasional plays over the PA! At least, I know I'm not.

M - Gaming with SeymourDuncan17 is a complicated affair. Gaming with me is a lonely one where I make you sit in the bathtub while I play Sonic 1 and eat popcorn.

M - Duncan Mitchell talks about what it's like to game with him. Jeez, I didn't know that was a thing you could do with people? Well, aren't you just a bunch of social butterflies!

A - Wanna game with Tarvu? Here are some of the things you can expect.

E - It's not too late to enlist as a Weekend Warrior, chummers.

T - An interesting look at jiggly bits. Honestly, I think we are all just fascinated with big bubbly spheres bouncing around.

V - A review of the new Red vs. Blue. My cap just got super rhymey right here.

S - I guess this is a response to the new Bloggers Wanted? It will surely grace the front page in no time.

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.
