C-Blog recaps of 4/13/13 + 4/14/13 + Skategasms

   0




So I found an old deck in my garage today. Thought it'd be cool to just cruise around, maybe ollie once or twice. Once I rolled around a bit and got the old familiar feeling back and felt my gravity was cool enough, I started popping shove-its, hitting some little grinds and trying to kickflip for the first time in about 6 years. It was good times, I was having fun and feeling young again. Skateboarding always drew me in because my anger just left my body, once I was on my board. Still does. While I'm not as angry as I used to be, I still hold a lot in my heart. But this morning I felt great. Wind in my hair, feet moving, board flipping below them. That feeling of doing something you're good at. Man it was great.



Then I was reminded why I don't do this anymore. It's not the pain either. I'm a fucking tank. Don't get me wrong, it hurts. God it hurts. But now, I have a dog to walk, chores, kids to take of and work to go to. I can barely fucking walk. It's not just the knees. Came down hard on my wrist and my ankle got twisted too. I am a dumbass. But I am a dumbass who had a bunch of fun. Oh well. That's life. Enjoy some awesome music vids, while I clean the blood off my floors.

First, enjoy this Macklemore video. Best non 80s, 80s song, EVER!


Then check out C2C, awesome turntable group


That knee pic isn't actually mine, my phone is just a dick and won't upload right now. My left knee is pretty fucking trashed and bloody.But my right one is about the same as the photo.

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!
