C-Blog recaps of 12/22/12 + 12/23/12 + I'm dreaming of white Philgasms

Did you miss me?



How about now?.... WELL FINE! I missed you though :(

HOLY CRAP I'M BACK! Damn have I missed you fine folks. What's happened in the month I've been gone? The worlds ended twice, Christmas is tomorrow, people are pointing blame everywhere (but where they should), GOTY awards and lists up the wazoo, that one thing with the guy... LOTS OF STUFFS! We're not here for any of that though. You folks are here for some sexy caps regarding this past weekend, aren't you? AREN'T YOU? TELL ME THE TRUTH MARTHA! Moving on....

Before I cap this place up and down (and possibly all around, haven't made my mind up yet), let's sit down and chat. Where has ole Phil been? Now, you probably don't care, but fuck you. I'm telling it anyway. I was in the process of moving to my new (and ballah) house, when that big ass storm hit Sacramento. The one with the flooding? Yeah, that one. Well guess who had his phone/cable lines trashed in said storm? That's right: Charles Duncan. But also me! Since so much damage happened, I've had wait forever for AT&T to get out here and fix it all. Then I had to wait for them to fix their fuck up that they made doing that. Then... anyways, now I'm here. With you all. As I should be. Your hive mind sex god has missed you and is no longer hindered by only being on a phone. Let's do some capping shall we?



*- ManWithNoName is sick of your whining. STOP WHINING! No, he didn't say that. I'm stuck in Arnold mode after Jingle All The Way.
*- Alphadeus drops the music of 2012 on our asses. Boosh.
*- EpicKx gives us his best for 2012 and does a damn fine job of it. I was going to fail him out of spite, but fuck it. It's Christmas. Merry X-Mas Silky.

P- These assho...HEY GUYS! It's episode 6 of Scary Granules! Ooooo it's X-Masy and reeks of pine too....
A- A very entertaining read on Ground Zeroes by Bory Borham. Featuring some MG history and speculation on where it's headed!
S- Marcunio88 continues with day 9 of her 12 days of X-Mas games. Today: Limbo
A- ManWithNoName drops an interesting piece about Brazil's grey market of games. I appreciate folks with grey that get a Brazilian.



E- Weekend Warriors continues and no one plays Monaco with me. F%^K YOU GUYS.
C- Kwamouflage returns with Zentoid 2: We gamers are killers. I dig the layout. Nice.
S- A very cool tale of what Rock Band is to Bigboss0110.
C- Jetpacksheep gives us a good write-up about always on DRM.

R- Ctate95 busts out a timely review of NFS: Hot Pursuit
V- SirTobbii gives out his soundtrack of the year award and looks like a sexy Fassbender on heroin while doing it.
P- Ctate95 gives us an in-depth look at Elder Scrolls Online. Nope. Not for me.
V- A Pringles Radview of Guild Wars. This does not look easy to make.
T- Sven Wohl shares his overlooked in '12 list.

M- Johnel Lance shares some VG Christmas songs with us all.

C- TheKodu spreads some truth, but needs better formatting and spell checking and flow.
C- WOWitsAwombat needs an intro blog and a longer, more thought out blog period.
R- Kwamouflage gives us Oldtoid. Holy shit, weird doesn't even cover it.


F- I tried not to fail anyone, but GODDAMMIT Esteban, you at least have to type SOMETHING! FFS man.



Wasn't that special? Darn tootin' it was. You folks go have a Merry Christmas or Holiday or whatever. I've got some kids I need to make happy and some Don't Starve to play and blog about. Also, keep your eyes peeled for a special X-Mas Low(er) Tier Podcast episode coming up. It's got a lot of presents :)

Merry X-Mas my virtual family, I love you all. Even you Smurfee. Kind of.... ;)

Make 'em bounce now!

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!
