LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 01/14/14 + Wrenchisms

   0




I had a Maxistentialism night yesterday. To celebrate my brother's birthday we got together with the girlfriends, tacos, Samurai Gunn, Nidhogg, and Cards Against Humanity. And maybe some booze.

It was pretty sweet.

I started writing some thoughts about the games for my -isms, but they quickly expanded into something I'd rather write a proper blog about. But here are a few key things you should know -

- Samurai Gunn is the most fun four people, 12 bullets, and a bunch of sharp objects can have together.

- Nidhogg is gorgeous, deep, and lets you throw a sword at your brother's face (GOTY potential).

- Cards Against Humanity is still providing proof positive that we are all terrible, terrible, people deep down.



I'm going to try real hard now to organize my thoughts into a proper blog before work tonight so you don't all feel short shrifted for nothing. But for now, do yourself a favour and download both Samurai Gunn and Nidhogg, dust off your rolodex, and call some people up for a games night. You won't regret it.

* - I don't know, the dudes on the cover or Rival Turf look pretty badical.

A - So Strider is collecting these so called "pocket monsters" now? What an obscure hobby!

A - Wow, there is certainly quite a bit of scholarly debate about the proper rearing of these "pocket monsters". There is a lengthy rebuttal in the comments that is probably more illuminating than the blog itself.

P - Another gaming podcast! Sadly, the blogs formatting is a little messy and hard to read.



C - Alphadeus could use a hand organizing the story for his concept album. Check it out and see if you're interested.



R - Some personal blogging by Titannel. His grandma sounds rad, and he made a WISE decision picking up Flashback on Genesis, and the underrated SNES port of Wing Commander. That's some good classic gaming.

R - Whatsacow is another victim of the Dtoid blog editor. Don't worry about it man, that thing is a massive pain in the butt to everybody.

V - A new Let's Play team is taking a crack at this YouTube thing. The post starts with a neg criticizing the typically low attention span of the average internet dweller, kind of guilting you into reading the rest of it. Fun times for sure!

L - Is this the part where I'm supposed to be snarky and ask why you'd want to play DmC at all, let alone be first at it?

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!
