Introducing the Cblog Fapcast! Episode 1 - XCOM or bust!

   0




Updated with new file host

Officially introducing the Dtoid Cblog Fapcast! A community podcast for the community blogs by us, the Cblog Recaps team! We talk about your blogs, but also video games! That's not our tagline though.

Spawned from my burning jealously of, "I can do that!", the Cblog Fapcast is an attempt to put the spotlight on the cblog community and who better to do that than the people who sit down and read the damn things? Here's everything you need to know about the Fapcast and my deranged need for self-validation on creative endeavors!

In this episode...

Strider (that's me), Phil, and Wrench get together and figure out how these darn podcasts work! Wrench prods me before the show even starts to talk about what games we've been playing as a veiled excuse to talk about XCOM for the majority of the first segment. Then into the second half, we talk about Robocop Vs. Terminator, compression socks, meta-emotions on gaming, FTL, and... shit! More XCOM? Goddammit Wrench!

~ What is the Cblog Fapcast?

Skip. We've gone over this. Ok, well, it's a podcast much like Communitoid, but since it's by the Recap team, it's about what pertains to the Recappers; the Cblogs. We're a community podcast though, so there's no guarantee we'll stay on topic.

~ Who hosts the Cblog Fapcast?

I'm the host and creator, so most episodes will have me in it. The inaugural episode has PHILK3NS3BB3N (seriously, hard to spell), and Wrenchfarm. The other Recappers have an interest on jumping on but not the time but they will appear on future episodes.

~ Will the Fapcast be on iTunes?

I wish! But have you seen web hosting costs? Like I said, this is a community podcast, and by investing myself as a community member, I'd prefer not to spend more money than I already do on just myself. For now, I'm hosting the file on my own Dropbox account which is linked above as well. In the future, especially if we get some help from people who know what they're doing, we can get the podcast hosted someplace where iTunes can accept our submission. For now, let's just call the podcast an indie thing.

~ How often will the Fapcast update?

I want to do it weekly, recording every Saturday. Honestly, I'm not sure if I've run that question across the Recappers yet. I just need to say right now that I want it to be weekly and yet I can't record in our second week due to previous engagements. MONKEY FEATHERS!

~ Will you talk about my blog?

We're a community run podcast about your blogs. If there's anything of note about it, somebody will probably bring it up. We discuss our topsauces, our fails, and everything in the gray that is worth mentioning yet not worth branding as the top or the bottom. I'm already seeing something I want to talk about and it's neither topsauce nor fail!

~ Obligitory twitter plug

Why that's right! We (and by we, I mean I) have started a twitter! Mostly for the Fapcast and yet confusingly named as if it's for recaps in general. If you have any other questions, concerns, suggestions, or ideas, please kindly shove it! send them to @CblogFapcast! You can suggest cblogs for us to look at and maybe discuss, cold openings (that's the intro peeps), break clips (I'm looking to stick with kitchy nostalgia commercials), and ending themes! I might stick with our current opening theme but if anyone has a suggestion that just blows it out of the water, go ahead and fuck yourself send it in!

~ I'm in desperate need of a tl;dr!

Go here to download it! Go here to send in your ideas! Go here to support our community! Hope you enjoy it! One love and other such Bob Marley references!

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.
