C Blog Recaps of 01/14/13 + mcgeeisms

   0

Welcome one and all to the sideshow that. Is. THE RECAPS! As my fleshy sex doll PhilKenSebben pointed out in yesterday's recaps, I haven't been around much lately. There are certain reports about me playing board games with the Ancient Ones, that I will neither deny or confirm. However, I can say that if I was playing said games with said entities, I definitely won, and was granted several things. Namely, my freedom. I needed that back. But perhaps more amusingly, I finally garnered the position of Dream Wrangler that I desperately was craving. As head of sleep-kings, I put my new powers into use as soon as I could.

Don't believe me? Check out the front page today. I've infested some of Destructoid's finest editors' dreams with my own thoughts! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

SEE YOU IN YOUR DREAMS, DTOID


CAPS for you, haps?



* - UsurpMyProse beat Dark Souls. Hard. But on the road to sweet victory, he was assaulted by thoughts of assaulting caused by being assaulted. Read about the five bosses that made him most want to fist-greet a baby in his facial region.

P - A new episode of Binary Chode! Listen to the science, and check out the show notes/links. All you need to know, is that animal sex counts as science. So don't feel bad.

P - Secret Moon Base is back, and comes bearing gifts of blab. They gab about this & that and maybe videogames. They also give Far Cry 3 an awful score. Come register your hate/praise. All heil be the Human Fiddler Crab Lord.





I - DePeir is new here, and has a somewhat short intro for us. We do get a feel for some of the things he likes, but not a lot about himself. Go say hi and ask him stuff! +1 for see-through plastic.

I - DpadJoe introduces himself by giving his thoughts on sexuality in gaming, and lack of LBGT characters specifically.

I - Another introduction, say hello to Oven Fries! He sucks at Dark Souls PVP. I'm sure there's one or two folks around here that could offer up some tips ;)

T - Hey, It's Scott from Fullicide! He assures us that he's a real person, thereby making me suspicious that he is an android or body-snatcher of some sort. Also, he has some thoughts on the "Probation" period that can be applied to you in COD; Black Ops II. Do you think it's fair? Do you just not care? Come over here and wave your hands in the air.









F - Students health insurance is important. That's a fact. Maybe.

F - Is child health insurance more important? Decidedly, yes.

F - Remember that Rocko episode? Where a satellite crashed into Rocko's house?

F - The one where Bucky could really only build bathrooms, but it wasn't even him doing the work? It was his female "assistant"? That was pretty funny.

F - Slolar Planlels.

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!
