LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 9/10/09 + Strykisms (Surplus dTunes Edition)

If you have been following RonBurgandy's awesome dTunes series, you will know that I have been your gracious host this week. I figure what better way to pimp my contributions than to deliver a special song roundup right here on the recaps! Below, I have posted four songs representing each day I have hosted. These songs were not featured on their respective days; they are unique to these recaps! Isn't that special?

This is all building up to tomorrow's grand finale when I unveil the ultra, super-secret, mega-hyper, fifth-day musical artist! Why did I do all this? Because today was a boring day on the blogs and I thought you all deserved a little something extra.

Day 1: Random a.k.a. Mega Ran
"Final Battle" feat. Loose

Sampling "Last Boss" from Mega Man 6, this collaboration is sure to get the club jumpin'!



Day 2: The Grammar Club
"Bank Holiday"

In this music video, Shael does his best Kanye West impersonation. Also, MC Frontalot cameo! The first 15 seconds are dark, so don't mind that.



Day 3: Eurodance One-Hit Wonders
"Mr. Vain" by Culture Beat

I know what I want! Do you?



Day 4: Richard Cheese
"Star Wars Cantina"

This one is actually a parody of Barry Mannilow's "Copacabana" featuring Star Wars references.



Day 5: ???

What will tomorrow bring? It's a mystery! Fancy a guess? In fact, let's turn this into a contest! If you can guess tomorrow's artist, I will mail you $20! Hell, I bet ten bucks you won't even guess the correct genre! I mean, what pattern am I following here? Monday was hip-hop, Tuesday was nerdcore, Wednesday was Eurodance, and today was lounge. I'm a wild card, people!

Remember, if you are interested in joining the ranks of the dTunes crew and sharing your favorite jams with the community, read this and drop RonBurgandy an email. He's always looking for fresh meat!

Anyway, on to the recaps.


*- A few months back, garganroo whipped up a badass survival-horror concept that caught the interest of a publisher. He really should return to the project and make something out of it!

*- "Leave Lara alone!" atheistium has a bone to pick with you, Burch!

*- At PAX, blehman made a face and it stuck for the whole weekend.

*- These are your video game role models. Why can't you be more like them?


S- In the latest Gamer Obscura, Stevil plays the gaming equivalent of Under Siege 2.
S- Overlooked Thursday delivers the hardcore you've been waiting for with House of the Dead: Overkill.

C- aborto learned 10 things (actually 16) this past week at PAX.
B- On 9/9/09, Reverend Macro celebrated the Dreamcast.
B- thebigghurt gushes in this second part of his Dreamcast love-a-thon. The first part is in the fail section below. I think you'll understand why this is up here and the other is below.
B- The Incredible Edible Egg wishes the Dreamcast a belated birthday.
R- Sedidwif mourns his grandmother. Moment of silence.

S- Dude, an E3 video? C'mon, now.
F- If you are going to do a multipart series, make sure each entry has some meat on its bones. I can sneeze on my keyboard and come up with more content than this.
F- These thoughts concerning The Beatles: Rock Band would have been fine, but michi's bad attitude has to once fuck everything up. I don't mind, though. Any excuse to fail michi is fine by me.
F- You know, saying that you are going to hide your blog translates to "fail this, please" in Recapanese.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Fake it until you make it

This month's bloggers wanted prompt is something we stole. You see, by stealing this idea, you have no idea how truly inept I actually am. By pretending to know what I'm doing, I have clearly used my ill-gotten status to meet such big-time celebrities as Darlington Woolie "Pie Stealer" Madden or Sara from [insert pixel indie game studio here].

This month's bloggers wanted was inspired by the internal enjoyment we had at reading TheBlondeBass' promoted blog on faking conversational anime knowledge. And now it seems as good a time as ever to pretend to know what's going on since the new Fate/Grand Order game launched and qtoid is talking about it. I am a big fan of the character design of Artoria in the blue dress, or Artoria in the suit, or Artoria in the red dress. But seriously, we enjoyed the format so much that we want to ask the community for their own ideas at faking it at all sorts of things.

But this prompt is not just for anime, of course. The video game industry is fractured with all sorts of niche interests that only an insane rich person with no job could realistically know everything about. This month's bloggers wanted is about taking a subject you want to offer advice on faking knowledge about in order to help the greater community, for better or for worse. If this doesn't sound serious, don't worry, you're not supposed to take it seriously. You don't have to be an expert in whatever you talk about any more than Bass is an expert in anime.

I seriously don't know if that was a compliment or an insult.

Offer advice on anything you can expand your mind on. Want to help people get into character action games? The more Ss you put into its grading system, the cooler it is! Want to convince people to get into the Neptunia series? Just say "Nep-Nep!" and you're all set to convince people of your technical knowledge! Can you get someone into RTS game by just talking about your APM? Someone's bound to believe some random technical jargon you made up!

To get started, start a blog and title it "Faking it: [your blog title here]." Then you can be as serious or facetious as you want as you provide advice on any number of things: learning how to play fighting games, trying a long-running franchise you've probably neglected, or even explaining a game's timeline. Heck, you can probably seriously try on that last one and we still wouldn't believe you.

Good luck this month. Only true cowards rely on facts. Real heroes pretend to know what they're doing!



Current Community Contests
PREPARE TO CONTEST - The Master Gaming List Birthday Giveaway!

Good Morning/Evening/Yesterday, my Friends/Robots/INSERT WAIFU HERE,

More or less a week ago, the Master Gaming List turned one year old. I had a speech prepared, but the blog editor ate it four or five times over the last few days, so I'm kind of winging it now.

Despite all of the threatening and cajoling I initially made to get you all on the list, I never imagined I'd still be adding names a year later (and by "you all", I mostly mean GajKnight). It was kind of a ridiculous undertaking at first, trying to make a semi-permanent, easily-updatable list of everyone's contact info. I'm not even sure what everyone was being hyped over last year that got me to do this.

That said, I'm glad it came together, and this list has lead to many other things for me on Destructoid; whether it was me becoming our laziest, cuddliest Community Manager, or our laziest, cuddliest Reviews-type-person, I have always enjoyed the full love and support of this community.

In thanks, and with the assistance of quite a few others, I've gathered up a number of game keys to give away to you all.

The Contest

I've never run a contest before, so let's keep things simple. Write me a haiku about your favorite game.

Rules

1. The haiku must not include the title of the game.

2. I will accept any other form of structured poetry if you are unable to haiku but can iambic pantameter (you monster).

3. Please state what key you are going for, and a backup if that one is taken (admittedly, it's quantity over variety here)

4. The tentative end date of the contest will be August 13th, and will be bumped at least once during that time.

Available Keys

-Stellaris
-Aporia: Beyond The Valley (Multiple Keys)
-The Witness
-Citadel: Forged With Fire (Multiple Keys)
-Armello
-Undertale
-ABZU

Thank you to all 282 of you who have made the Master List a successful project over the past year! I will continue updating it into the forseeable future.
