For those in the UK, it's now Election day. Polls open at 7am and remain open until 10pm. Get out the fucking house and vote. I'll be obessing over coverage all day, reinforcing my hand for millions of facepalms and laughing my ass off at the comedy that always arises (intentional or not) from various pundits, actual comedians (Channel 4's election coverage is hosted by Jimmy Carr, David Mitchell and The One True King Charlie Brooker) and Jeremy Vine. I am an election junkie though, so you'll probably be best served just watching the funnies on C4.

VIDEOGAMES this week, or rather videogame. Super Street Fighter 4. Juri's awesome, the online is awesome (not endless Ken's anymore) and the reworked Trial mode is awesome. This is a Game of the Year contender far more than the original SF4 was and if you have any interest in fighters and don't have it yet you need to find an excuse.

It's been mentioned before, this entire sentence is a link to the Humble Indie Bundle, I recommend you pay at least $10 for it if you like videogames.

Once again I have to mention, the European Wii store still hasn't got Cave Story. I WANT TO PAY MONEY FOR THIS GAME.

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.
