C Blog Recaps of 11/12/12 + Anniversary mcgeeisms!

   0

These recaps are dedicated to knutaf, because I said they are.



Well, well. It looks like it's time for some mcgeeisms, for some reason. I mean, they should be all long and stuff, and express something or other for Dtoid. They probably won't though. I'm already pretty late with these. Which is somehow fitting.
These are are my anniversary Recaps, for two things at once! It has now been six years since I first joined Dtoid. That's quite some time. It's also my one-year anniversary of damning the Recaps team to their doom, by joining it.

I'd love to do something cool, but I'll probably save it for later in the week, so I don't trample all over the Wrenchisms and Tuesday bloggers. But, I will say that I still love the place and the people and the Recaps and the resurgence of podcasts and the Better People and the everything. It's why I joined the Recappers in the first place. I have a real appreciation for you people, and I wanted to do something to show it. In the past year, I've joined the Recaps team, started an FNF for the 3DS, sort-of started a weekend FNF thingy, been on a podcast, and generally interacted with even more cool folks 'round here. So I'd say that's not bad. I want to do more, but it's been alright. :)

So thanks, staff and community alike, for being cool motherfuckers. The internet would suck without you.
CAPTAIN CAPS





* - Caliban has some wonderful words for us. He's got some great observations about Dishonored, as well as a suggestion on how it could be better. Specifically, in its prologue.

* - A competitive multiplayer version of the MAX SCOVILLE MOUNTAIN DEW CHALLENGE SPONSORED BY DORITOS AND H4LO. Goodbye, Dtoid Seattle. We hardly knew ye.

* - They should make a movie out of this blog, and call it...Drive. Yeah, that would be good.

A - TheKodu reminds you to WATCH YOUR ASS, early adopters. It will happen.

A - Hey! Come watch this guy die! Brandon Dickerson has a story to tell you before his inevitable death. Minecraft is definitely involved. Also, I like this.




THE LOW(ER) TIER PODCAST IS STILL GIVING AWAY ASSASSIN'S CREED 3!

I - tav7623 is new here (the RE2 remake fellow,) and his intro is introspective. Good luck on the backlog! :)

I - Thabass in the hotness. Deal with it. And welcome it. If it gets out of line, slap it. Slap Thabass. /wrists

T - From a blog on beginnings, we jump straight to a blog on endings. Screw the middle. DaviesAntony asks the question, answers it immediately, and explains his answer.

T - aileronroll has some thoughts about nostalgia, and isn't really feelin' it for the current gen.

D - Ev777 has a game to share with us, or, 1/3 of a game. Welcome to Boo Reed's Odyssey.

T - Thabass doubles up with an real blog about being first and/or best. For gaming consoles, that is.

A - anglorum does a super-cool ART for this month's Artists Wanted. It's in the style of Jet Set Radio Future, so you know you want to look at it.

R - Windows 8 may or may not hate people who play games their PC.

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!
