C Blog Recaps of 02/04/13 + mcgeeisms

Late CAPS around this piece. The Cappers have been busy with this & that, but we should be back on track now. Especially since we recorded a new Fapcast within a decent time frame of the last one. It's...uh...great! Yeah; great stuff. It actually felt really weird after such a long break from 'casting. It should be up soon for your crusty ears.

Since I didn't talk much about what I was doing on said podcast (constant outside interruptions,) I figure I'll say a few words on it.
I feverishly played through the entirety of Little Inferno on the Wii U. That game really resonated with me. There's some messages that are pretty obvious, but a lot of little things keep you thinking. Thinking things like, "Momma always said I was a pyro." Joking aside, it's something that everyone should experience. If you like World Of Goo, I think you can at least appreciate Little Inferno. The gameplay is really simple, but fun. That and price point may be part of what it's attempting to say, so not everyone will be into it. Go read Jonathan Holmes' review, as he sums most of it up pretty well.

I also finished The Walking Dead. Bad times were had.

CAPS, for you: POSSIBLE NSFW IMAGES FOLLOW.



* - SouthwallCornerClub (and Chechosaurus,) get into some theories about two iconic characters from Dark Souls: Ornstein and Smough.

* - Bronze Kettle busts down the door with this intro. He gets deep into why RTS games just seem to be fading away. Kind of sad, but filled with some truth. Go say hello.

* - Awesome intro (finally) from Roberto Plankton.













T - CaimDark thinks perhaps EA isn't supporting the Wii U as strongly as they talked about doing because of Origin, or the lack thereof. I wouldn't say it's implausible.

T - scarritt braves Okami's most difficult challenge, and cheats using modern technology. CHEATS!

R - RoboLeader has some nice succinct mini-reviews.

T - pk fire sure as shit didn't like the end of Persona 4.





? - My Enourmous Hairy Downstairs Kitchen tries to make some friends by taking his clothes off. An effective strategy, in my experiences.

L - Believe it or not, George isn't at home. Poor Zombie Orwell.

F - Word.

F - Extra VR missions as DLC, when there are already VR missions on-disc. What's the dealio?

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!
