C-Blog Recaps for 7/20/13 + Goodbye-gasms

   0




This is some bittersweet shit right here. As I said in my whiny blog, I am stepping down from being a recapper. My life is too shit, with too much going on right now, for me to have any extra on my plate. My brain is fucked and everything is..... everything is pretty shit. You guys cheered me up and pulled me out of the deepest part of that funk, but my situation hasn't changed. Thank you all for being so supportive of me. Shit makes me cry like a baby. I'm honored and humbled, to have such support from people like you guys. It gave me drive and helped me not be so down on myself.

The bright side of this is, you get a recapper who is not shit in my place. Let's be real, I suck as a writer. My only skill is that I can convey emotion like a mother fucker. I write from my heart and I believe it shows. Taking my place and returning to you folks is the fantastically awesome: Manchild. That's a big old cup of fuck yeah in my book. I'll still be around as a reservist to suck it up on occasion though. 

This set of recaps is special for me though. It marks my one year anniversary as a recapper. Wish I could do another, but... yeah. Let's end this (I'm getting really sad right now) and have some recaps and stupid pics, shall we?

* - Marche100 tells you about making a game (THANKS OBAMA!) and some other things in this great blog.





C - ManWithNoName has some ponderings on Ninty and the Wii U.

E - Weekend Warriors does video games live.

T - TheManchild is all up in Dark Souls again.

T - Kyle MacGregor tells us his favorites (so far) of 2013. 

T - Pope has some thoughts on TLOU *SPOILERS*

T - DiZZastergaming writes the best press release for Ubisoft I've seen in awhile.







F - Random thoughts, random fail. Take it to the forums.
F - Don't bother telling me what I'm watching, I won't bother watching. FAIL VID.


I'll see you guys in the forums or maybe in a stupid comment on the front page. I love some of you a lot. Except you. Fuck you.

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!
