C-blog Recaps of 11.14.08: Nintendoll is Late Edition

   0


Not late as in preggers, just late in posting. My car need repairs so I need to get to sleep early to go the the shop in the morning. After all of the individual repairs, it's going to come out to about $500. Ugh.

I got Mirror's Edge today with the runner's bag, which I surprisingly large. This means I need to do a Faith cosplay. I'm pretty excited for the game, even if people had some mixed reactions. The difficulty curve seems like the old platformers--jump in the wrong place and you're dead.

Anyway, keep your eyes peeled for new recappers. Images look like they have been fixed (hooray!) so sit back and enjoy the awesome that are Dtoid's comunity blogs.

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!
