Not much to say. Yesterday I spent about 10 hours trying to get schoolwork in order. After I got home I crashed... I woke up in a panic at 2AM and realized I hadn't even started tonight's recaps. Have you ever sat bolt upright in bed from a sound sleep? It's not as easy as it looks on T.V. and in movies.


*- Mr Destructoid is SO CASH.
*-JT706 posted a list of some of some arbitrary game commercials. I remember seeing all of these and scooting up closer to the TV to make sure I didn't miss a thing.
*-Tremulant wrote about his first experience being raped by George Lucas. Surprised no one posted a pic from that South Park episode.
*-BulletMagnet wrote a nice impressions piece on Ar Tonelico 2.


A-Apparently F.E.A.R. 2 and hangovers don't mix.
S-Tactix posted this week's Destructoid Community Discusses. This week: What will the 8th generation of consoles look like?
S-As always, NihonTiger90 wants to know, What'd You Get?"
M-BradEatsPeeps wrote about how random games on XBL kinda suck in his Monthly Musing.
P-GECKO had Niero and Colette as guests for BBQ and a podcast. A good time was had by all, it seems.
A-CelicaCrazed defiles the corpse of the L4D PS3 rumor while sprinkling salt everywhere.
S-Jackal27's Sound Test returns. This week he spotlights Lonely Rolling Star from Katamari Damacy. That whole game's soundtrack is amazing.



No contests today. Please enjoy this video of the orchestra who performed the music for Super Mario Galaxy.




E-Crainium's pipe is getting slammed. Help him out, won't you?
E-There will be a couple of NARPs coming up in Texas. Sounds like fun!
I-Lots of introductions today. Greetings to Cyanic.
I-CWal37 makes an indroductory post many months after the fact. That's O.K. though. Welcome to Destructoid.
I-Welcome also to Mau GX3, a native of Brazil.
I-And this guy's from the same country. There's like a brazillion introductions today! Welcome, Mirax.
I-Yet another introduction! Say hello to Doomsday Forte.
R-xXTubbyXx's friend had some consoles stolen. Sorry man, that sucks.
H-Rider Chop shows off some retro goodness.
H-Kraid had quite a haul this week, too.
H-Finally, Zagieman introduces himself by showing off his sweet gaming setup.


N-Rifter01 found the achievements for Outrun Online.
N-StevePhoenix says THQ is struggling. So are we all, brother.
R-Ocified Xboxer didn't care for the RE5 demo. The flamestorm that followed is actually fairly measured and reasoned. It's unsettling.
R-Another review of RE5's demo from CupOfCocoa. In all fairness, I don't think I could curbstomp a kitten either. That's very distasteful.
R-After those two, this may have been inevitable.
R-And we may be seeing the birth of a new meme here.
R-Ok, yeah. No.
R-Several RE5 demo reviews today. This one's more positive than the others from above.
R-Braunof theDead also had some nicer things to say about it. With a name like that though, he might be workin' for the zombies.
R-Cyanic reviewed the F.E.A.R. 2 demo.
V- Half Left shows off all the fun stuff in Sonic Unleashed. Unfortunately, this takes less than half an hour.
V-MichiYoyoshiku shows a full playthrough of the Resident Evil 5 demo. Also cocks.
T-Darkair still thinks Duke Nukem Forever will actually be released. Poor, deluded Darkair.
T-LastSkySamurai wrote down 150 (One hundred and Fifty!) gaming annoyances in celebration of Australia day.
T-Unangbangkay has about three-quarters of a boner for Yakuza 3.


M-Mushman temporarily takes over for RonBurgandy in this very special episode of dTunes.
F-DJDuffy got to meet Dennis Muren and got a neat lightshaver.
S-l0cke doesn't really want this Jak 3 swag. Would you?


L-I could see AIM being used as some sort of retarded text-based MMO. I just involuntarily shuddered.
L-Dale North found some drama on the internet. Scandalous!

?-....Huh?



For the second day in a row, no one failed so badly as to end up here. Are the planets aligning or something?


OH YEAH!

By the way, Universal Music... you suck for not allowing the official video of Kool and the Gang performing this song to be embedded.

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.
