Cblogs of 4/22/14 + Fun with stock photos


Normally I'd write something here based on one of the blogs I recapped, or maybe just a general musing on life. But man, I don't have it in me today. It's Monday, I'm stuck at work, and I've got about a billion things I could be doing other than sitting here staring at my work computer awaiting actual work to come through. Maybe I'll just list out some things I could be doing other than wasting away one hour at a time.

- Boating (I don't like the water and don't know how to work a boat, but that'd probably be better than this)

- Cooking (I'm not a good cook, but practice makes presentable!)

- Staring at a different wall at a different location (if I'm going to sit and stare at a wall for hours at a time, I'd much rather be doing it at home)

- Playing a video game (I haven't had much time lately to really dig into a video game, so I think that would be a nice thing to do right about now)

Wow, that was fun! I feel worse already!

Off to the recaps.

* - Shoggoth2588 wrote 117,000 words (I counted by hand) on possible third party characters that could show up in Smash 5. I think a lot of it is wishful thinking, but it's still fun to think about. Moreover, the passion and excitement that Smash gets out of fans is really cool. Good job, dude!

That's not how you hold a lightsaber, dipshit.

If you don't remove the caps you'll never see a thing through those binoculars, jackass.

What kind of idiot holds a camera this way? You'll have no idea as to what you're shooting.

T - taterchimp went and played Serious Sam VR, and had a seriously sweet time with it! I've never really been drawn to VR, but the way he describes the final boss battle and how the whole thing is just so awesome in VR really does sound cool.

The tree can't hear you, moron. Stop asking it for money.

How the hell do any of these dolts plan on getting work done today if all they're going to do is knot up their arms like this?

S - I don't relish using the Fail category. I really don't. But poster13 - c'mon dude. Let it go. You can criticize the game all you need to based on what you've seen, but don't write something from the perspective of someone who's actually played it. YouTube is not the same as playing a game. Step it up, son.

Don't waste your precious little time on this planet. Make the most of things, and be the best you.

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.
