C Blog Recaps of 09/10/12 + mcgeeisms

   0



Tonight's recaps are brought to you by nostalgia and this motherfucking elephant.
* - Wrenchfarm is a man who truly appreciates his jazz, as well as good game design. Come read about player choice, player (and developer) restraint, and the assassin's assortment of Dishonored.

* - KingSigy loves Mario and Link, maybe to a fault. Here he takes a look his own possible bias and whether or not it's affected his thoughts about other games. Be ye biased?

A - S Pastic throws his hand up quickly, as he sees another game borrow mechanics from Batman's recent game outings.

A - SephirothX has some first impressions of Steam's Big Picture Mode. I like what Steam is doing here.

C - PhilK3nS3bb3n is back with yet another contest, giving away Shattered Horizon! Go win it so you can literally jump around in zero gravity (space) and shoot people.





D - Steam Greenlight is the new Kickstarter! Just kidding. Kinda. You could probably write a bit more about it, but it looks good, actually. Sometimes all a good game needs is the right spotlight. So check it out.

R - Elect-Nigma reviewed a game that should've been bought by everyone ever: Rayman Origins. Seriously, though; there's still time to buy this and beat it before Rayman Legends comes out. For like $20. Even if you don't like platformers. Give it as a gift. Oh and read the review.

T - A maybe SLIGHTLY sarcastic piece from Stavros SteviewGreek. He's not so keen on the Wii U and it's "features." But I will fistfight anyone that tries to deny me a little Balloon Fight.

T - nekobun took the time to properly appreciate Duke Nukem Forever. He thinks perhaps his time was wasted.

L - GlowBear has some ponderings on the book Reality Is Broken. It does indeed sound interesting and confusing. Any of you out there read it?

V - Honestly the vid is kinda rad. I'm not sure what's happening or why, other than a cool video, but the blog needs something. Like why you did this specifically, or how some behind-the-scenes stuff. Basically: post some damn words to go along with this, Please.

F - Too many typos. Oh also: fucking go away.

F - Johnel Lance finally remembered his password! Thank goodness he could pop in to tell us about his other site instead of re-intoducing himself.

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!
