C-Blog recaps of 3/23/13 + 3/24/13 + Philgasms

   0





Welcome to the weekend recaps! Once again we ride together to enjoy all the lovely (and not so lovely) c-blogs this weekend has thrown at us. Not a lot this weekend, so that's kind of nice considering the week or so I've had. That's neither here, nor there though.

Y'all motherfudgers hear about XCOM coming to iPad? AWWWWW YISSSSS. I think it's pretty damn cool at least. That's XCOM on 3 machines in my house. Even more important than that though, was the tease of a bigger threat coming. Does this mean sequel? An expansion? I straight gives no fucks. Either makes me happy as hell. I'm betting sequel though. Anyone who has beaten Enemy Unknown, knows what was said about testing at the end. Firaxis has the engine nailed down now, so really a sequel just needs add a ton of stuff and more maps please. Seriously the same ole damn maps are my biggest gripe about EU.



I can't say anything else has really grabbed me, news wise from PAX at least. Mercenary Kings looks pretty damn amazing and just my type of game, but that's it for me out of all the new stuff (Well Dishonored DLC, but that's DLC). I'm always down for awesome 2D co-op action. Anything Metal Slug-y gets an instant look and sale from me. Doesn't hurt the art is absolutely gorgeous (Paul Robertson gets ALL THE HANDIES!).


Alright, enough bullshitting. I don't have anything to get all passionate about and I don't feel like whining in the recaps (that's for my personal blog), so let's get to capping eh?

*- Nathsies gives us Vol. 4 in the Up, Down, Left, Right series. Crazy awesome you do these man.
*- One of the most well written reviews I've ever read. It's for GOW: Judgement.

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!
