C Blog Recaps Of 11/05/12 + mcgeeisms

   0

Hello, reader-folk! Good [insert time/day] to you all. Looks like mcgeeisms are a little late today, so we should keep it brief.

This week has really flown by, with new games, podcasts galore, and the country doing a lot of arguing and such. Most important of all, though, is THIS. A new Shantae game, you guys. For 3DS. The rest doesn't even matter. Not really, anyway.

Oh yeah: go vote. Or else.
SMURF/CAPS 2012



* - I want to fail it for the lack of MGS2 love, but MisterDonut makes up for it in glorious fashion by loving Snake Eater as hard as possible. A must-read for Solid fans.

* - N7 reminds us that he is the one true gamer. The challenge has been issued, ladies and gents. Thank you based Scoville.

* - digitaldebaser asks the question: Is games journalism being dominated by new media? A very good, interesting read, and relevant to us here.

A - I knew these blogs were coming soon. StriderHoang saw Wreck-It-Ralph. He liked it. But it did make him think, specifically about the relationship between the split audience of the movie.

S - Kyle MacGregor updates us his backlog quest with some short impressions.

C - PhilKenSebben is giving away Assassin's Creed III, entry is still open!

E - Dtoid Seattle (new group!) makes good on their promise, and meets up to see Wreck-It-Ralph!

I - Go say hello to ColtonPhillips, that lovely man. He's intro-ing and sharing a game with us! Also, make sure to tell him to say more things about himself, because he should.

I - Another intro! This time it's Bankrupt Gamer, and to start off he laments about over-saturation. It's a topic many of us should be quite familiar with.

I - Must be new user day y'all! tav7623 jumps right in with a blog about what Capcom should and shouldn't do, if they decide on an RE2 remake. *shudders*

C - A case of the Mondays, eh??? Help ConnorTheScot get them juices flowing! Not...those juices. The creative/productive ones. Ya pervs.

R - djvlive has an amusing review, or "The Good, The Bad & The Ugly," for Natural Selection 2.

T - Jon Hartley is simply not feeling the November releases. Except for Midway Arcade Origins. Read on how Jon is apathetic and stuff.

F - LOOK. AT. MY. DICK. Also, Jonathan Holmes' blog about his "new" project Teenage Pokemon. Constructive criticism is mucho welcome.

S - ekoala2002 is raffling off these fan-FUCKING-tastic Megaman Rock 'Em Sock 'Em robots. Only $3 per ticket, and you know you totally want to enter that shit.

C - This is not bad, but I'm not sure how I feel about just linking it.

F - Viewtiful Joe love is a viewtiful thing. Skirting around bans is not.

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!
