Craft Time: Make A Thanksgiving Day Chocobo Hat

It’s 4pm on Thanksgiving Day. You’re probably stuffed with turkey right now, or in the process of stuffing yourself with turkey, or still waiting to stuff yourself with turkey. (If you ate ham, get the hell out of here.) You know what that means? It’s time to make hats! Making turkey hats is an old Thanksgiving tradition. It’s not hard to see why; turkey hats combine two of our favorite things: food and fashion. Hats also make your head look bigger, which will convince people that your brain is huge. People who wear hats are often the life of the party. Need proof? Check out this picture of Spock. Boy what a boring guy. Now, what if we throw a hat on him? Instant party animal! You too can be this guy. But instead of making the traditional Turkey hat for Thanksgiving, why not make a hat using gaming’s first bird: the Chocobo. Read on to find out how. Making Chocobo hats is a fun family affair. It’s also practical. If that annual post-meal brawl breaks out, you’ll already be armed with scissors. Here’s what you’ll need to get started: Construction paper (all colors) Scissors Glue (edible) The unspoken disgust of your older cousins Kenny Loggin’s Top Gun Soundtrack Begin by cutting a piece of yellow paper into a large circle (don’t worry it can’t feel anything.) This is what a circle looks like: Next, cut out a beak and some eyes. Here is what you’re aiming for: If your uncle begins screaming about how his ex-wife wrecked his boat or your nephews start a backyard wrestling match in the living room, crank up Kenny Loggin’s "Danger Zone" and shut out the sound of smashing dishes. Next: putting it all together. Families can be hard. Is your mom screaming at you to take out the garbage? Is your Dad yelling at you, because he doesn’t want you to cut off all the cat’s hair? Is some old man complaining that you broke into his house and stole his war bonds? Ignore them. They don’t understand you. You’re an artist. You need those war bonds to make your Chocobo hat. It’s time to put the whole thing together. Glue your beak and eye to your circle and then affix the whole Chocobo head to another piece of paper (or war bond) and wrap it around your head. Feel free to add a few little extra details to your hat. Really make it your own. Add some extra tuffs off hair or a ruffled brow. If your Chocobo is filled with friendship and magic, add some glitter. If you’ve followed our instructions carefully, you should end up with something like this: *Results may vary There you have it. You are now free to experience the true joys of Thanksgiving. Throw away the unused scraps of paper (ignore their cries for mercy; they weren’t good enough to make the cut.) Now, go have some pie and hug your grandma – not only will she be freaked out by your new hat, she’ll won’t know what to make of this random affection. And remember, if you get bored later, you can always make Chocobo hats for your pets.

    Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night’s Classic Mode Makes Old-School Cool Again

    Hello Bloodstained Fans!

    New year, new free content! We are excited to bring Classic Mode and the new Kingdom: Two Crowns boss area to Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night today!

    Classic Mode

    Classic Mode takes the gameplay of Bloodstained and dials it back a few decades to feel just like the classic platformers of your past. It’s a retro experience you won’t want to miss.

    Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

    Classic Mode contains five levels of enemies and sub-bosses that lie between you and your ultimate goal: Gebel. Can you survive his devious traps? It will take all your old-school skills to make it to the end before you run out of lives.

    This isn’t a casual sightseeing tour, you’ll face a horde of demons that stand in your way. To survive, you need your platforming skills and your trusty swordwhip. Additional shards can be picked up throughout the Classic Mode levels, each with its own special properties. You can only have one shard at a time, so you will have to change your tactics to suit your currently equipped ability.

    Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

    When you finish Classic Mode, you’ll be graded on time, score, and number of deaths across three difficulty modes.

    Ready to play Classic Mode? Download the latest update today and choose Extra Mode from the main menu. Select the Classic Mode option and prepare yourself for a new (old) adventure. A completed playthrough of the core game is not required to play Classic Mode. Just jump in and go kick demon butt.

    Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

    Kingdom Crossover

    Our friends at Raw Fury included Bloodstained characters in Kingdom: Two Crowns and it’s time for us to return the favor!

    Included with this free update is a new Boss Area created in the Kingdom: Two Crowns style. The area is hidden within the existing castle when playing as Miriam. To find it, you will need to first defeat Bathin and then locate and acquire the Crown of Creation. That crown will be your key to the new area…if you can find it. It will not appear on the map (and will not affect your map completion).

    Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

    When you find the hidden area, you will have to defeat a Kingdom: Two Crowns boss. Should you succeed, you will be rewarded with a new Familiar Shard that can be used throughout the game.

    We hope you enjoy Classic Mode and Kingdom Crossover. Thank you for being fans of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night!
