Cblogs of 1/17/18 + Nostalgia Gaming


As we've all seen in the past year or so, there is quite the market out there for nostalgia gaming.  The success and impossibility of finding the NES Classic and SNES Classic show just how much people want to relieve that old school gaming.  I myself was lucky enough to find an SNES classic right after Christmas (that deal with the devil may come back to haunt as I owe him my left testicle in the future, but hey I wasn't using that one anyway).  Since then it's been some sweet nostalgia action.

I've been playing pretty much nothing but the SNES classic the past couple weeks with a smattering of Rocket League.  My nostalgia boner has hit epic proportions.  Who needs Viagra when I've got Final Fantasy VI right here?

I have to say this has been some of the most fun I've had with gaming that I can ever remember.  The games are as fun as I remember.  I'm particularly enjoying  A Link to the Past (best Zelda), Super Metroid (best Metroid), Super Mario RPG, Earthbound, and Final Fantasy VI.

Don't get me wrong, I probably have some nostalgia blinders on, but for my money, the SNES is the best console I've ever had.  I love it so much.  All the games just have such wonderful memories and they are still fun to this day.  And honestly, isn't enjoyment the biggest thing when it comes to gaming?  If I enjoy it, then it's successful for me.  I just have to say Nintendo, if you give me an N64 classic I will drop my crotchless panties so fast and mistrals will write ballads on the epic erection I achieve.  Get to work Nintendo!

Time to recap some blogs peeps.

* - I'm telling you right now, if you haven't had the opportunity to listen to some of Alphadeus's music here on Dtoid, remedy that right now. You're doing yourself a disservice if you haven't listened to it. Anyway, Alphadeus would like to know if you want a video game song written for you. If you're interested let him know. Judging by what I've heard, you won't be disappointed

   Nostalgia boner incoming

S - Marcel Hoang asks all of us at Dtoid a question. Do you have friends that have ever gotten you into games? Back during the N64 age I had a friend get me into Perfect Dark and that became one of my favorite gaming experiences ever. Drop by and let Marcel and others know if you any stories

T - Grizzly Guernsey Gamer's is new around the Dtoid town. He's here to show off a video made about Candleman. Check it out. Looks pretty interesting

N - MorisGK takes a look at some upcoming indie titles that will be out in 2018. I really started getting in to Indies over past year so this has me excited. Hopefully your excitement reaches my heights.

T - 2017 was an awesome year for games. One if the better years that I can remember from recent history. There were just so many good games that it would be hard for me to choose. Slatan Slatanek gives it a go and lists his favorite 12 from 2017. I have to say, pretty good list of games

This Secret of Mana game is pretty good

  I love monkey business

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.
