Cblogs of 10/16/2017 + A Course on Bullshit


You know when your company takes you away from important work to spend 5-weeks in some HR bullshit course?

If you don't, it probably means you don't work for a company that cares very little for its resources.

I don't exactly love my job. I like that its sometimes challenging, and that there is always a tangible result to your work. Mostly, I see how my time directly contributes to some progress. This is why I dislike these kinds of courses. They are basic bullshit about leadership, life, and career. Bullshit to distract people from the inherent neoptisim of the company, and the fact that most (if not all) of them are probably expendable in some form or another.

Oh well, there will be 5 weeks of this. Better park my brain somewhere during "work" time.


B- When there is combat in your horror game, it allows the player the oppurtinity to power through their fears, just as mullon managed to do against the feared zombies of Resident Evil.

S- Comments of the Week is back, and some of the usual suspects still manage to kill it week after week.

S- I must confess that I have not heared about the Crypt of the Necrodancer. However, after hearing its soundtrack as part of ADanToThePast's Tone Deaf blog series, I am not thinking hard about giving it a go.

S- Agent9 is back with another spooky tune, this time from a campy mixed bag of a horror game. Sound intresting at times, but mostly tedious.


S- Sometimes you don't have the time. Soemtimes, the words simply are not coming to you. Maybe, you even hate whatever you write. Anyways, if that's the case for you, and you feel guilty about not particiapting in the blogs as much as you want to due to it, then know that just like the navi is a lie, you are welcome here. Always. Also, good luck in your writings, and in your life.



R- SpielerDad is back with another funny blog about gaming and drinking, at least it would be funnier for me if I drink alcohol at all. Note: This blog does not encourage alcoholisim.

Save Camelot from Waluigi's Dungeon of doom
Anyway, here are the games I am currently playing. Those in bold I am going to review when completed:
  • Xenoblade Chronicles (Wii).
  • Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars (DS).
  • Landstalker (Genesis).
  • Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy (PS4).
  • Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (PS3).

Also, here are my latest reviews:

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.
