LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/17/09 + Strykisms

   0


Yesterday, after another rough night of indigestion that prevented me from getting any sleep... yet again... I forced myself to get to work, the last day of work before my Christmas break began. For the trip back, my air conditioner decided to die and leave me sweltering in the 90 degree heat. Over the course of the day, the sore throat that I had been nursing all week gave way to a full-blown cold. As of this moment, I still haven't regained my voice.

Oh, and the job I drive an hour to and an hour from? The one I willed myself to go to that morning? Yeah, I no longer have that job.

Merry Christmas.

On the positive side, I can finally catch up on my backlog and start pumping out more articles. I'm also doing some writing over at Gamer Limit, but who isn't, honestly? Half the Cblogs is working over there now! It's a party! Come visit us!

All in all, I think I'm still gonna have a lovely Christmas. That won't stop me from spreading a little humbug:




*- SykoShadow explains how the further games strive for "realism," the more disconcerting they become.

*- walkyourpath's five-step program for overcoming griefing, yours for only three easy installments of $19.99!

*- I fear for Elsa's husband if he ever decides to break from her.

*- Yeah... YEAH! I'm diggin' your style, BenelliM4! Flash games like those you listed need more respect!

*- P4KO decks the muthafuckin' halls with this sick cover of a Christmas classic.

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.
