LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 6/24/18 & 7/1/18 & 7/8/18 + Friday the 13th

   0

Friday the 13th is soon upon us, and to celebrate I recently picked up Friday the 13th on PS4. It's not a perfect game, and many, many parts of it are janky as fuck, but I'll be damned if it isn't a fun little multiplayer romp. Playing as the counselors has a good sense of tension and dread, and playing as Jason is lots of fun as you're able to teleport around and do dumb supernatural serial killer shit all in the name of slaying horny teens.

That said, I'm pretty terrible at it. I'm usually the first counselor killed, and can't seem to be able to kill anyone as Jason. It's partly due to how bad I am at multiplayer games these days, and partly due to how little time I can devote to gitting gud enough to actually be effective. So for now, the game is best played with friends where I can talk shit and get killed repeatedly without having to upset randos online.

If you have the game, hit me up! A few other users and I are planning to get some more regular games going, so the more the merrier. You know how to find me.

* - Dango puts together a nice little list of video game locations he'd actually like to visit. Honestly, you could put basically any Mario level in there and I'd probably be down. Even the dungeon levels! I hope I never have to visit Camp Crystal Lake, though...

S - Flegma goes on another SP Solace journey with Yono and the Celestial Elephants. The game looks cute as heck, but it looks the gameplay is a bit lacking. Also, there are probably no environmental kills in this game, which is kind of harshing my mellow.

M - Shoggoth2588 slays more games every month than Jason slays promiscuous campers. He played like 15 games in June, which is pretty insane to me. I think I played like four. And those were for reviews. Where does he get the time?!

S - Jason eventually gets us all, as Toys R Us can confirm. Pacario shares some photos from the last couple of days of his local TRU's existence, waxing nostalgic on the time when he didn't want to grow up, on account of being a Toys R Us kid.

E - Band of Bloggers is back, baby! In this month's prompt, LaTerry asks users to share their gaming thoughts on robots. You know, in Jason X Mr. Vorhees became Cyber Jason. I think that counts.

R - Dwavenhobble puts together a nice little memorandum on TotalBiscuit and how his work impacted Dwaven's own.

T - Kesith feels like all he's played this year is Yakuza, and you know what? He's fine with that. I haven't played any of the Yakuza games yet, myself, but I hear they're pretty good. Are there any hockey minigames?

L - I don't really like ice cream, so I can't speak to the veracity of these claims. I do enjoy a nice ice cream sandwich from time to time, though. Hey, what's Jason's favorite ice cream flavor?

See you at Camp Crystal Lake!

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.
