LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 8-21-09 + Old Skool Y0j1mb0isms

   0


Ladies...Gentlemen...it's been far too long since I've done a recap. Have you missed me? It's okay if you didn't, for I have missed you nevertheless. The best job here in Dtoid in my humble opinion is this one right here. Reading all the cblogs you create on a daily basis. Whether they are good, great, amazing or fail, what everybody here has to remember is that without you blogging, Destructoid wouldn't be half of what it is now. You, the community, are the lifeblood that runs through our gaming robotic entity. While recapping last night's blogs I noticed how little there was to recap. Why back in my days of recapping we had quite a bit more.

I'm here to urge everybody to blog. You don't need to be a fantastic writer to blog y'know. All you gotta do is express yourself about whatever strikes your fancy effectively. The stigma of failing shouldn't deter would be closet bloggers because we all eventually fail before we get better. Hell, I've failed more than my share here but it's the pursuit of clarity, of getting my point, my opinion out and be understood, whether right or wrong, that drives me, as it should you.

To those who haven't blogged in awhile, or those who are lurking in the shadows, enjoying this fine site, I ask of you one thing. Blog more. Know that only through your participation will this fraternity called Destructoid grow and flourish even more.

Now let us take a look at what was last night on the cblogs. Spoiler Alert: There were many blogs that were funny, unique, awesome and even some fail. Lets begin with:



*-This blog wasn't created last night but it NEEDS to be a TOP PICK regardless.
*-Three things to improve the Pokemon Series.

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.
