LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 4/25/2018 - Death, Taxes and Game 7 Inevitabilities

   0

Kids, don’t ever care about sports. Don’t even think about it. All that will happen is you’ll get up a goal heading into the final frame in an elimination game, only to have every possibility of happiness ripped away from your soul. It is the most painful of deaths. Hope is for the foolish. Nothing matters. You deserve every second of this misery.

Face your fears, they said. Slay the dragon! Go out and get redemption against the foe that has knocked you down time after time. Today is the day you overcome them! Today is the day you triumph!

Lies!

Lies! Lies! Lies! Lies! LIES!

Why even bother when all anything brings me is anger and sadness? Why am I the way that I am!? Just watching naively as my spirit is lifted, knowing full well the inevitability that is coming, and getting my heart piledrived into this hellscape of an existence. This is the absolute worst!

…….then again, maybe being a Leafs fan ain’t so bad. Only 5 more months until hockey training camp opens! Can’t wait! #BudsAllDay

In much less melancholic news, GREAT JOB on the Wednesday blogs everyone! Reading them really pulled me out of my funk. There was a good handful of them covering a wide range of topics. More of this! Keep it up!

* - RocketKnight shares a touching moment from Earthbound that resonates with him, calling back a warm memory of his family. Give this lovely blog a read!

* - Soon-to-be-daddy SrChurros doesn’t really care for dragons. That doesn’t stop him from creating a species of murderous, space-faring dragons in Spore for this month’s Band of Bloggers entry. What a terrifying thought.

A - Dwavenhobble discusses issues with art criticism in games and what he feels can be done better.

A - Building off the latest entries of God of War and Resident Evil, Monkey830 brings forward other franchises he would like to see reimagined. Go share games you’d like to see given the revamp treatment.

Hockey hugs are a great way to cheer up! They're also a great way to take out a conference rival the second the tournament is over.

Enjoy the good moments while you can. Appreciate them.

R - Our resident Star Fox expert, Zalno, looks back at the series’ entries on the Wii U, Zero and Guard. Sounds like they were out of control! I mean in the sense that the controls were bad.

T - Sapato64 discusses Project Gorgon, a game inspired by classic MMORPGs of yesteryears. Keep an eye out for future blogs sharing their experience with the game and the people they interact within PG’s world.

F - It’s a battle for the ages as Luckrequired goes blow-for-blow with Greenhornet214 over the 2003 & 2008 Hulk films. Pick a side and share your thoughts with them.

Celica is wrong. If you're prepared, you can overcome your biggest obstacle on the biggest stage. Believe in your self and believe in your teammates.

If your friend plans on leaving during free agency, beg them to take you with them.

 

That's it from me for this week. You're probably stuck with me for a few more recaps until Dere comes back. Once again, well done on the blogs everyone.

Fap the caps!

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.
