Man, I need to stop starting these at like 11:00-11:30 at night...

Some big news gaming wise. Booted Mario Galaxy back up, finally deciding that I'm going to beat it. It's such a great game... the orchestral music really makes it shine. More games need orchestral music. Aside from that I've started digging into the games I got from the holiday Steam sale, specifically Aquaria and i-Fluid. Liking both so far. May do writeups on them when I'm done. Also, much <3 to Aerox for being able to get games of L4D going much better than I can.

For non-gaming news, my Taekwon Do instructor thinks I can - and should - go for my black belt this year. Considering I'm only a red stripe right now that'll definitely be a tall order. Essentially it'll be red belt in early February, black stripe by June, and then train all summer hard for black belt in the fall. It'll be tough (for me at least), but doable. If anybody cares I'll provide updates. :)


*- Incognito, Episode 1 is now available. I will definitely be checking out the demo
*- Amazing first post from lovemana23 on his love of gaming music
*- Taterchimp's #1 game ending. Certainly the first "epic" emotional ending that I can think of
*- It's 12:30am so I only skimmed this sadly, but I read enough. Awesome story of a gamer and and how love can burn... especially when the love is hotsauce


P- TheCollegeGamer podcast episode 6 is out!
P- First episode of the Rebelfm podcast, made up of former 1UP staff members
S- Awesome Shirt Thursday - L4D edition!

B- Mid3vol's birthday, whom we all <3. Hopefully I'll be in an epic credits someday... :(
C- NihonTiger will miss EGM's, worries about the state of investigative journalism
E- Clance wants a UK narp, looks for ideas
S- Craineum wins some... very random stuff... for his son's epic Mega Man costume.
C- Gamestop/EB does indeed rip us off with trade ins. They would give me only $8 for Lost Odyssey, then turn around and sell it for fifty-fucking-five dollars!! :'(
S- Tactix gets a late secret santa gift from the GHost, who imo has odd chest hair (at least compared to my epic mane)
H- Animal crossing, and gaming setup for FlamesOfChaos. Epic Yoshi plushie too! :D

A- Bigby fancies up his boring old white shoes!
L- michiyoyoshiku updates us on his comic book reading, reviews what he's read
F- Chad reminds me why I haven't watched tv in 4 years. Not even a dolphin trainer can save that mess

L- Heh heh... LaxLuster gets himself into a... crappy?... situation
C- Sorry, didn't find the video good. They were trying to hard to be funny imo...


F- A "coming soon" post? Seriously? Ug... might not have failed if you included semi-nude pics, but you didn't so it does.
F- Erm... okay. Yay pirates and ninjas? :S
F- I hope zgerhard is trying to troll, because he definitely isn't being funny or entertaining
F- Wasn't sure what to make of it, but the lack of any reply make me think trolling... and how does one pick hot toes?
S- Not really fail, but it was already posted by JediYoshi

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!
