Cblogs of 7/11/18 and 7/18/18 + Ignoring My Backlog


Ever since I've had my PS4 (thanks Raiku and the Dtoid community), I've been steadily growing a fairly decent backlog.  Between gift cards, sales, and just not having a ton of time to play video games recently, it has been growing a very steady pace.  That said, when I do have time to play games, instead of catching up on my backlog, I've been replaying through games that I've already beaten multiple times.  Doh!

For example, right now I'm going back through all the Final Fantasy games that I own.  I just recently played through 6 and 7 and am now finishing up 9 and will then move on to 10.  I just really like the Final Fantasy series for the most part.

It's not my fault that something with the serie sjust resonates with me.  I mean I really love 10 and 12 sooooo much and am looking forward to playing back through them again.  Maybe once I scratch this Final Fantasy itch, I'll move on to some of my backlog.  I wouldn't hold my breath though as I've been telling myself to do that for months to no avail.

Fantasy 12, the best Final Fantasy and one of my favorite games of all time

M - Killing Hitler is always a fun time in video games. Adzuken gives us an entry in this month's bloggers wanted, taking out the trash, with killing Hitler. Adzuken gives us some examples of games that allow us to kill Hitler. It's a really fun blog that I think you should check out

A phenomenal Final Fantasy in its own right

Old school never felt so good

Where it all began!

F - As a master at reading between the lines, Dwavenhobble shows that he hates the Oscars. Honestly, I haven't cared about the Oscars for years

F - I've never gotten into Babylon 5, but after reading this blog from Narzack, I get the feeling I should remedy that

I didn't hate Final Fantasy 13 like some people *cough cough Wes Tacos

My least favorite of the Final Fantasy games I've played

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.
