Cblogs recaps of 07/03 and Striderisms

   0




How funny is this? I'm recapping the day before the 4th of July. Who's going to recap on the 4th? Our resident Dutch recapper, Shade. Do the Dutch know anything about America's Independence Day? They probably know we had a movie starring Will Smith and it's how we gained our independence from alien invaders who wanted to enslave/destroy/parlay with us. That's probably enough actually.

Jinx is also probably expecting me to finish and upload the Fapcast soon. I told him it'd be done soon and to expect Valve time to rear its ugly head. Yeah, it'll be done when it's done. We never rushed Duke Nukem did we?

My style of Animal Crossing so far has been rather relaxed compared to other mayors. Alphadeus or Mayor Pas, has a very aggressive system of fundraising for both his town and his residence. My I hear other mayors like Mayor Levi, or Zompieplatypus, put a bit more focus in their town before diverting funds into his home. Me on the other hand, I've put more effort into my town rather than my home, but that doesn't mean I'm proactive in fundraising for either. Anyone playing New Leaf knows that the best way to earn money is to grind on the tropical island. But I don't want to grind in Animal Crossing. That isn't the point to me. I do like going to the island with friends though.

Animal Crossing to me is the daily change and greeting of the day. I play it everyday to see what's new in town: the store is remodeling, there's a new shirt I want in the Able Sisters, a new fossil I haven't discovered, a new project to be finished. Even when I theoretically catalog all the items there are and I don't need to see anymore new items and my stores are fully upgraded, there's still the neighbors I want to catch up with and the other mayors I want to visit to see what their towns are up to. And like true Animal Crossing, it doesn't have to end there. There's always a new goal to set for yourself to make the game appealing.

I recently decided to pave roads in my town via patterns. In previous games, it seemed like a hassle to design an entire pattern just to walk over, let alone devoting a space to my pattern collection to it. But I can use the 3DS camera to scan QR codes of interesting patterns. I already  have an N7 shirt pattern thanks to the Internet and QR codes.

I didn't even need to scan a code for my path really. I borrowed a pavement pattern off the Internet through the Dream Suite. Generous towns can share the patterns they used through Wendell and I was very fond of one town's pavement style. Older Crossing fans will remember Wendell as the starving artists type of walrus who gave away rare wallpapers in previous games. Now, he browses the Dream Suite for interesting food because he loves how he never gets truly hungry while dreaming. Of course, you can set your dream to not share patterns, in the case of one certain dream town.

I decided to go an extra mile and plant extra flower gardens and pavement, since my town was showing signs of extra grass wear. I currently have pavement down between the train station to Retail, to my house, with a t-bone intersection to my goodwill fence (like the dump in OG AC) leading too my cafe.

So I got a request in from my favorite townie, Hopper, to build a lighthouse. I haven't paid off my mortgage either. Looks like a lighthouse is being built.

* - Double Fine is in some financial shish-kabish and Viredae sheds the lights on it all

* - Inanimate carbon rod, you are my hero and so is Simpsons Hit and Run

* - Save sick kids and watch Pokemon. WHAT MORE  DO YOU SHITHEADS WANT?

* - Casey Baker will respect my Animal Crossing thread in the forums and start a cry for help here on the Cblogs for neighboring mayors on New Leaf. GIVE HIM YOUR PITY.

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.
