LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 6/10/18 & 6/17/18 + Your Mom Won E3 lol

I never bought into the whole, "Who won E3?" thing. Partly because it's usually just rampant fanboyism that determines the winner, and partly because it's just so damned subjective. I don't consider 45 minutes of playing Smash Bros. "winning" anything, but lots of folks were really into Nintendo's presentation. Inversely, I really liked Sony's different approach to the conference, even if the execution was extremely flawed. Different strokes and all of that.

That said, I think there are definitely losers at E3. A recent Qpost reminded me of the splendor that once was Booth Babes. Good old Booth Babes. For those who don't remember, Booth Babes were essentially models that companies would hire to stand around and look hot while nerds nervously pawed at them. They were shut down years ago for several reasons, chief of which being they were kind of a bad look on the industry. Was the use of Booth Babes actually sexist? Probably not for me to determine. Do I miss seeing attractive women dressed up like sexy Crash Bandicoot?

I'll let you be the judge of that.

* - J Jason Rodriguez contributes to this month's Band of Bloggers prompt with a nice little tribute to his dad, the ever-present NPC in his life. It's a good read that sticks with the theme it set out for. Read it!

S - I'm gonna be honest with you here, I have no clue what this blog is about. I read it and everything, but we have so little time on this planet that I can't be bothered by the constant outrage of the internet. Dwavenhobble talks about something Jim Sterling said, and I guess people are mad? I don't know. If you like spending your breath on this sort of thing, then I suppose you can hop right in.

S - MightyMagikarp is tackling the massive roster of the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate by giving a rundown of each of the 70-ish characters in the game. This list sees fighters 13-26. Nothing can convince me that Mario actually has a legitimate doctorate degree.

E - I have a pretty amazing streak of making it in to Comments of the Week by simply recycling that excellent Fartnite joke of mine. And I'm never, ever going to stop.

E - Bethesda memed itself. I think that's against the rules, right? Anyway, CotW does yet another fantastic job compiling all the dumb shit we say...this time taken directly from the Bethesda E3 stream!

D - I don't know if this counts as spam or not, but I'm willing to give Rahul Martin the chance to tell us about his work in an informative, bloggy kind of way. If he starts to spam us, though, I'm afraid we'll have to let him go. Choose wisely, Rahul!

T - Monkey830 recaps the Bethesda E3 presentation. I don't know about you, but I'm fucking hype as hell to blast some Nazis in 1980s Paris with twin ass-kickers in the new Wolfenstein game!

T - Flegma walks us through his experience with GRIDD: Retroenhanced Edition for Switch. I'd never heard of the game, but the photos in the blog are quite impressive. What can I say? I'm a sucker for 80s neon.

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.
