C-Blog recaps of 3/9/13 + 3/10/13 + Too busy to gasm-gasms


What up party people? I feel like shit. Don't worry, that pic isn't real dookie. It's a Halloween recipe for kitty litter surprise. No, really. I can't wait to make that for people. Just slurp one of those brown bad boys up, while being stared at. Good times. But seriously, I am burnt out. Been doing a lot of stuffings lately. Doing that podcast thing still (we had some hiccups again), trying to write something actually worthwhile, getting into game development, working, raising the kids, taking care of my house... eesh. I'm tired just typing that. Yet somehow I still have time to play almost 60hrs of games in two weeks. How the fu..? Oh yeah, I don't sleep much. Damn you Civilization... and XCOM.... and Super House of Dead Ninjas... and... It just keeps going! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! At least I have fun with it all.

I am just one of those people that doesn't stop. During my surgery I chilled the hell out and I think I started going nuts from all the free time. IT WAS TOO MUCH! I thrive off of stress and deadlines and all that. I'm my best under pressure. Just how I was wired. Sometimes though, I really wish I wasn't that way. Like today. I just want to sit on my ass and do nothing. Not even game..... for maybe a few hours :p I think a lot of it is due to when I was a kid, being in the situation I was in, I had a lot of downtime. No toys, no books, no nada. That drove me crazy. So I started taking things apart. Figuring how stuff would work and creating projects for myself. Took apart my first calculator at 4. Put that bastard all the way back together too. Except for that one button, but we don't talk about that.

What's the point of all this rambling? Absolutely nothing. Just blowing off steam. Venting if you will. I saw some dick nozzle on the front page say that we didn't truly have a community here. What an ass. We totally do. I feel comfortable sharing my inner thoughts with you guys. I love reading your own inner workings as well. We all thrive off each other and help each other. Good or bad, we stand by our own. If that isn't a community or a family, I don't know what is. Maybe I should go sleep for an hour....

I hate you brain.... I think I'm manic.....

*- Chez Dispenser gets my hot sauce for a lovely blog that went into another direction than I thought it would. It's about tropes and women.... maybe a pig... I don't know. Read it.
*- Azureliske throws out an excellent blog about violence in games and the misdirection of the whole debate.
*- SongSeven may have copypasta'd this, but damn it's a good read about the search for true tolerance.

V- Calling bs on Ranting Robots. I think they are using preexisting footage. But here is their Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate review for Wii U. It'd be nice to proved wrong on this too. I just have no faith in people these days.
T- TroyFullbuster gives Skyward Sword a tongue lashing. From what I've heard he's pretty spot on, but to each their own.
T- Leigh Davidson shares a kind of review on Tomb Raider '13 with us.

F- Phantom Spaceman is a moron.
F- Mags puts no effort or work into this one. Well, there's a picture at least.

Well, that's all for this week folks. I have road maps to make (game design), podcasts to plan and finish editing, kids to feed and love and a dog to walk. I know I haven't been around a lot lately and that makes kind of sad. I mean I'm here on the site all the time for my mod duties, but the actual interaction has gone down. I'm just super busy atm and loving it. Mostly. WOOOOOOOOOOOO! I LOVE AND MISS YOU GUYS!

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!
