LONG BLOG

C-Blog Recaps for 9/30/13 + Philgasms

   0



What up fools? Long time no see. Some butthole couldn't handle doing these, so ole Phil had to come, dick a swinging and pick up the damn slack. How've ya all been? I've missed you, my pretties. Well, as always only some of you. C-Blogs ain't looking all that great still, but I do see progress. There are some good bloggers out there, keep it up folks.

Moving on, have y'all hear about my brother? We are currently sitting $560 away from our $2200 goal. We keep stalling out, but I won't relent until we finish this. So if you can, please spread the word. The family needs the help desperately. Food is low, gas is low, meds are about to refilled and we need that last bit to cover these things. Like I said, if you can hit that link and help me spread the word, I'd be very grateful. I am so grateful for those of you that have already helped too. It means so much. Now do it again :)

Moving onto games, what have you folks been playing? I'm all about Eldritch myself. Described as inspired by rogue-lites and immersive sims, it immediately peaked my interest and hasn't let go. The atmosphere is fantastic, the game is highly polished for only being in beta and most importantly; it's fun. I have a blast exploring the depths, finding loot and either sneaking my way past the horrors or engaging them head-on. No matter my play style, I enjoy the hell outta myself, while playing it. Check that one out but before you go, let's do some cappies.

* - JoelCouture writes this absolutely fantastic blog about the classic Sweet Home. Please give it a read.

A - Skiptomylou has a good read on not giving up on FPS's, but fucks it all up with the Strangelovian title. Of course someone did this the time I come back. Of course.



S - Ole Zombor is up to his usual crazy shit in Chapter 1 of whatever the hell this is.

I - Say hello to Oridan in this lovely intro.

T - AboveUp is totally hitting on me in a roundabout way with this blog about the lovings.

V - FrankHowley has this comedy short about GTA V for you to check out.

T - Skiptomylou explores games that try to elicit emotion from us in this nice read.







F - More effort and no links next time. I don't want your copypasta either, unless it really is relevant and worthwhile. You're here, be here.


Well that was a fun ride. Nice to jump on the ole recapper bike for a minute even if just for today. You folks take care. I need to get a run of Spelunky in and some Eldritch.

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!
