Hey there peo-ple. Welcome to your Tuesday morning Monday Recaps! I missed last week, as I was a bit tired of looking at my monitor. Putting the finishing touches on this thing took some time and eyeballs. It was worth it, though!

This week there's been less of that, so I actually got to play some videogames, whatever those are. My 360 won't read discs, but luckily I grabbed a bunch of digital holiday sales! The Walking Dead, for instance. I'm playing through episode 1 & 2 again, because I already had those on PS3. Can't wait to again feel like shit in episode 3!
I also got other stuff. Rock of Ages is another. Awesomely strange. Good mix-up of tower defense. -SF3:3SOE, I'm getting back in the saddle. Being able to play it online again really accelerates that. -VF5: Icantrememberthesubtitle. I love VF5, okay? Best 3D fighting game ever.
I got stuff to play. As opposed to writing something substantial here.

So, yeah. I got words in here somewhere, but they're not coming out right. So I'll skip it. Let's get to the important stuff: CAPS.

Oh; one more thing. Chespin is the shit. Look at him. He obviously skinned another Pokemon, and is wearing it. He's a bad motherfucker. Best starter ever.

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!
