WHOOOOOOOAAAAAA NELLY! BORDERLANDS 2! DIBS ON GAIGE!

Borderlands 2 happened and strangely, I haven't been around. It's because work on Tuesdays and Wednesdays keeps me away from my console but tomorrow, I'll finally get a chance to have a proper hack at the damn game besides the few hours I've gotten in with Stalhbrand tagging along.

It's funny how people are constantly ripping on the Commando for looking super generic. But I get online and nearly all my available friends playing BL2 are playing Commando! That's not to say these are the same people who ripped on Axton but still, that's a small yet somewhat decisive look at group thinking there. Zer0 was lucky to be a minority among all the Commandos I saw.

I haven't been able to weigh in heavy with it but needless to say, there's loot to be had and grunts to be shot with the loot I just had until I find more loot to be had to use against more grunts to be shot with the-

Borderlands 2 is damn addictive.

Really, I just want to get back to playing Borderlands 2. There was quite a bit to recap and not much else I want to talk about.

Oh, whatever, here's a bit more!

If you love Guilty Gear or BlazBlue or both, you should listen to the Guilty Gear x BlazBlue Live 2011 concert I dug up off YouTube. All of the best songs from each series, lovingly recreated with a live band dedicated to bringing you the truest sound of each wailing electric guitar being brought back to life. Classics like Get Down to Business (Order Sol's theme), Suck a Sage (Chip Zanuff), Lust SIN (Jin Kisiragi), and even Awakening The Chaos (Nu-13) is complete with an operatic singer. Listening to this hour long concert (which I've downloaded onto my iPod) reminds me that I'm still waiting on Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Slash to rerelease onto digital platforms so that I may enjoy the grand daddy of all Arc Sys Works new school fighters. And yes, that is the name of GG's most recent and de facto iteration: XX Accent Core Slash. And you thought Championchip Turbo Edition sounded stupid!

* - Are you interested in becoming a front page star? Listen to Boner Man's insight on the promotion process so the staff have an easier time. Remember! If you think it's a pain in the ass to crosspost, it's probably a pain in the ass to promote!

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.
