C-Blog Recaps for 5/4/13 + 5/5/13 + IDFKgasms

   0




I really just don't know anymore. So tired. I took a new weekend shift awhile back and I no longer sleep on Sundays or Mondays other than a few hours Monday afternoon. It is taking quite the toll on me, but I need the money. What ya gonna do? Thank God my caps haven't been the greatest anyway. Problem is, you all deserve great caps. From someone not half asleep and burnt out beyond recognition. So, I'm thinking of stepping down as a recapper. I'll try to switch days with someone first and I will finish my first year (almost there!), but yeah. This sucks. If I didn't children, it'd be a different story, but I simply cannot go on working, raising kids alone, recapping, programming, podcasting, commenting and contesting it up. As much of a workhorse as I am, even I have my limits. To anyone that actually cares, I'm sorry. Like I said, I'll try and make it work, but I don't have high hopes. I love this job and I love you guys though. So let's enjoy this while it lasts.


I've been trying to unwind in some games lately, but I can't seem to play anything more than a half hour at a time anymore. My brain just can't do it, along with my hands. It's kind of sad. But still totally a first world problem. OH NOES! I have played some cool stuff though. Still big into Orion: Dino Horde. Just a fun game to kick back with and blast some dinos. Played a bit of Poker Night 2. Pleasantly surprised by Cambell's replacement. He does a surprisingly good job. The card game has been stepped up and is more fun, but the AI has a hard on for going all-in at just the oddest damn times. Hopefully they patch that up. If not, it was only $5 and I've had more than $5 worth of fun already. Eh, that's all I've got. Let's cap.


No sauce this weekend. Just this:

A- SongSeven has a well written blog and boobs and stuff.
A- Qlum does a great write up on the cost of gaming.
A- Let's play catch up with Randombullseye.


R- Don't forget you can win some sweet ass Steam games from The Low(er) Tier podcast. IT HAS ME ON IT! WOOOOOO!

E- Weekend Warriors gets perverted.
C- Kodu talks about the need for shovelware. Don't really agree on his definition myself, but hey! Fuck it.
S- Let's take a trip down memory lane with BlinkingPixels and look at Star Wars games.
C- Matt Evans thinks CoD could learn some new tricks from Receiver.
C- The new Xbox friends list/program sounds like Twitter. Lame.
C- Joseph O Hagen flips the bird to AAA games.
I- Say hi to ArkhamJester in this intro, that's not really an intro.

T- Roberto shares some Monster Hunter love.
D- ArkCo made Greenlight. WOOOOOOOOO!
T- Sword of the Stars: The Pit is not the pits, according to Shuuda. I agree.
T- A round-up of Achievements from NICk unCAGEd.
T- Suck it Blood Dragon's PC version. Suck it.
T- AssCreed has changed according to TheAce over here. Not for the better either.
T- A cool read about Dead Space 3 from The Salty Hippo.



V- Rathowreck has a new video series.



F- Love this new copypasta trend. Steal all that credit bitches. Makes ya feel good huh?


I'm out. Time to start dinner and then about 4 hours until I can go back to bed. 4 horribly long hours. With yelling and learning and...... *sigh* Anyone want to marry me?

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
First Kiss

No matter what the experience was or which game or genre left that strong first impression, such experiences have the potential to open our eyes to the rich history of a series or genre. With any luck, we might find even more to love or something better. A great first experience with RPGs could lead to an undying love affair.

Sometimes a first kiss can be so impactful that the game gets placed on a pedestal and enshrined as a gold standard, which has its own pros and cons. I mean, it is nice to have a basis for comparison, but some folks take it too far. There are people who loved Half-Life, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, or Final Fantasy VII so much that nothing after them really got a fair shake.

So first impressions matter -- they can shape and inform our gaming habits. I grew up on arcades, Nintendo, handhelds, and eventually into RPGs, so much of what I play will be influenced by how I acquired my tastes. I probably like Overwatch a ton because it has a passion for RPG roles, but contextualizes them closer to older shooters focused on objectives more than gear builds and grinding out perks for better killstreaks.

So for this month's Bloggers Wanted, we'd like you head over to the community blogs write about your first kiss, the games that positively influenced you or maybe biased you a little too much for a time. What turned you on to a series or genre? Was it love at first sight? Did it set any expectations in stone or possibly lead you to something better?

Whatever the case might be, remember to use the title "First kiss" and place "Bloggers Wanted" in the tags!
