Here is another call for your prospective recappers.

If you are intrestedin salving hours away with no real pay or compensation, you are just the person for the job.

If you are intrested in rambling a bit about border-line videogame related stuff and practice your writing, you are justthe person for the job.

Mostly though, if you are intrested in giving back to the dtoid community for a bit, then this is also the job for you.

fell free to volunteer in the comments below....

*-Team work and group projects are a big part of real life work and as such have an important role in college life. Its not all easy though, and Greenhornet214 shares some stories in where it gets rea bad.

A- Here is another community question from Marcel Hoang. What is your favorite swimming animation?

A- I realize now that I don't care about articles caring about Anita Sarkeesian as much as I don't care about Anita herself, and this blog by Dwavenhobble is one step to that realization. I also realized I don't care about diversity in games, besides diversity in mechanical terms and genres. This whole cultural war going on is so far off from my enjoyment of, say, Dark Souls 3, that I cannot belive anyone wastes their time on it.

B- I really like this blogger wanted prompt, as it inspires some tongue-in-cheek humor like this one about Nazi Bowser by genoforprez.

 

 

T- Giving back to dtoid, Boxed Swine writes a really good game about Minit, an indie game he won at one dtid giveaway. Great show.

T- With a bit of work, this blog by ChaunceyBoy can be much better than it is. It is an article about learning fro failures and such.

R- Back with another little-known PS3 gem, Kerrik52 reviews the little-appreciated El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, a game inspire by Jewish religious texts of all things.

R- For his next review, Kerrik52 went (nearly) mainstream with this excellent review of Nioh, a game I am yet to play but anticipate eventually trying.

 

 

F- This is a question that looks like some form of advertisment, there isn't enough context for me not to fail it.

F- I get the joke here, but I don't think it is presented well enough, or is long enough to be a blog.

ONE OF US, ONE OF US, ONE OF US
Anyway, here are the games I am currently playing. Those in bold I am going to review when completed:
  • No More Heroes (Wii).
  • Shining  Wisdom (Saturn).
  • Paper Mario: Color Splash (Wii U).
  • Dark Souls 3 (PS4).
  • Affordable Space Adventures (Wii U).
  • The Legend of Legacy (3DS).

Also, here are my latest reviews:

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.
