Cblog Recaps of 8/11/17+A lull

Welp, beat the Ratchet and Clank Remake-overall while it was visually impressive and generally fun its obvious how hard the movie kneecapped it in terms of story especially near the end. It does make me hopeful for more remakes of old...

CBlog Recaps of 08/08/2017 - Negaposi*Continues

While chatting with a pal I've known for some years, I mentioned the slight and gradual improvements I've noticed at the gymnasium. Specifically, I made note of the increase in stamina in that, where once I fell gasping for air at a h...


Cblogs of 8/7/2017+ A Defense of Starfox Zero

When Starfox Zero was surprisingly announced by Nintendo, the expected excited reaction was almost immediately overshadowed by a more subdued but more consistent wave of doubt. Almost immediately, people found negatives to rally aroun...


CBlog Recaps of 08/01/2017 - Remote Controller

With the in medias res advent of VR, gaming interaction has changed. It just hasn't caught on en masse yet, per se. Time will tell in the next few years if Oculus, PS VR, and other headsets burst into the Lifestream, securing attentio...


Cblogs of 07/30/17 + Spare the Details

When we're intrigued with a particular story, it is fair to want more. We want to know how it became to be, we want to know where it'll go and we want to know the cast. We want to know anything. We want the story to just go on. Howeve...


Cblogs of 10/07/2017 + Remasters

There's been some awesome remasters this year. Kingdom Hearts 1.5+2.5, Kingdom Hearts 2.8, The Silver Case, Crash Bandicoot: Insane Trilogy, the Final Fantasy XII remaster seems to be pretty great too. And we've still got Yakuza Kiwam...

Cblogs of 06/29/17 + Busy, Dizzy Times

It has been quite the news-filled week for my good self. I've been hit with a lot of headlines, both good and bad, and processing it all has led to some panic and sleepless nights, as well as some worry for the well-being of my closest...


Cblogs of 6/26/2017 + Losing my 3DS

It seems such a shit way for this relationship to end. I have been playing games on the DS family of systems for more than 10 years. Starting with the Fat DS and ending up with my beutiful Hurule gold New 3DSXL. Probably, I would make...

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.


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

-Aporia: Beyond The Valley (Multiple Keys)
-The Witness
-Citadel: Forged With Fire (Multiple Keys)

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.
