That damn slacker Phil saddled me with his caps too. GOD what a jerk. I'd never do that to anyone. AT ALL.

Anyway, because this is just me covering Phil's ass, and I barely have any time to spare right now, I'm not going to talk much.

One thing though:
Remember when I said last Thursday that Microsoft would be hearing from the Germans and the Scandinavians about the Xbox One?
Well don't I just love being right. (thanks, TheKodu!)

Peter Schaar, the German privacy commissioner, today expressed his concerns about the always-on Kinect. Not so much that it's always-on, he's not afraid of spying, but the fact that Microsoft may have some plans for storing certain kinds of data. Which, if true, doesn't sit well with EU privacy regulations either. 
So that's one down already. Don't leave me hanging now, Swedes, Norwegians! You can do it!

And with that out of the way...euhm....
Fuck it, have some more pretty girls laughing.



* - Here's an interesting blog: rathowreck explores virtual representations of Philadelphia. Sadly, my knowledge of Philly literally doesn't go beyond "In West Philadelpia, born and raised".

* - Xbox One fits in an oven, 10/10.

P - ...since when do we have a GoForRainbow podcast? We're apparently up to episode 8 already.

A - Eight little piggies not happy with Xbox One. GameroomBlitz doesn't like always-on Kinect and DRM. 

A - Nine little piggies not happy with Xbox One. Pixielated blames you. Would've 'sauced this if it wasn't for the hostility, because her points are valid.

A - Ten little piggies not happy with Xbox One, but Auggie offers suggestions for improvement.

A - Eleven little piggies not happy with Xbox One. It seems that TheKodu doesn't like any of it.

- So can we have bacon now?




- Wait, how the fuck did you get here?!

E - Last year, PK493 took bbain to the MCM Expo. This year it was Phil's turn. Look how much fun his avatar had!

R - A new review by TroyFullbuster, on New Super Mario Bros 2. The game's better than expected, seems like.

T - Tomb Raider might have been good gameplay-wise, but Nick didn't think it was written particularly well. Seems fair.

V - In honor of the announcement to announce (yeah...) a new Mario in the next Nintendo Direct, Mikki Saturn takes a look at where it all began.

T - While Sonic Team will always be synonymous with their blue hedgehog, they made some other cool games as well. Notably: NiGHTS Into Dreams.

F - PopetheRev likes anime a lot (a LOT) and has a list of recommendations which strangely lacks Death Note.

C - I thought this was funnier than it probably deserves. Then again, I devoted an entire caps to laughing about the Xbox One, so who am I to talk?

V - Xbox One is watching you. Every move you make, every bond you break, every step you take, it'll be watching you.

V - Even The Onion has an opinion on Xbox One.

C - CoffeeKnight spent huge dosh on Steam, but didn't play nearly every game. Ah, the plight of us all.

L - Okay, so this was actually pretty clever.



- She should totally smile more often. She's actually pretty cute when she smiles.

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.
