Cblogs of 6/13 & 6/20/2018


Greenhornet214 is in the house, stepping in for our beloved Dere. I'll be recapping blogs from the past 2 Wednesdays.

I can't stop playing Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition on Switch. It's addictive. The gameplay is simple and straightforward, but not bland. I love the constant feeling of progression. You are always growing your characters. No effort you make is wasted, unless you fail a mission (which is rare on the lower difficulty levels).

The Adventure map is complicated. I'm making really great progress on the first map. I am finally grasping how searching the grids works. I still don't understand everything. It's complicated and the game doesn't explain it very well at all. But it's a really fun system on the whole. Provides a great variety of gameplay. If the game only had the main campaign, it would get very old, very fast.

I have also purchased and attempted to play the Octo Expansion for Splatoon 2 but it is crazy difficult. Really cool idea, but I am just not up to the task at hand.

* - Osc takes us along with him on his continuing journey through learning game development. He even includes a link to a text adventure he crafted.

S - Dwavenhobble continues their takedown series of gaming industry practices with another controversial issue. This entry discusses Valve's curation policy.

T - darrenhupke has a lofty goal. He attempts an objective review of E3. He is a wee bit harsher than I was, but hey, maybe I'm a fanboi.

T - Meteor Strike Gamez gives us his thoughts and theories regarding Devil May Cry 5. As someone that has never played any of the games, this was way over my head. But I'm sure fans of the series will find plenty here to sink their teeth into.

T - The Baked Potato begins what seems to be a series explaining their nitpicks with Fallout. This entry is brief and straightforward. I'll be interested to hear if Potato ever posts their thoughts on Fallout 76.

N - Virtua Kazema recaps news and information pertaining to fighting games at E3. I'm not a fighting game person, but it's a good time to be a fan of the genre it seems. I am very excited for Smash though, of course.

F - F-I'm not sure what to make of this blog by WarriorPoet. It is literally just two links to youtube videos and nothing else.

Peace out homies!

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.
