Seems Left 4 Dead has been fixed somewhat. Actually was able to make it into a decent server on the first try, unlike Tuesday where we spent 45 minutes trying to get a decent server before giving up. I'm definitely liking the tweaks so far, although I haven't given versus a spin since the update.

Also, among other things I watched a monkey skating today!



*- Unangbangkay like to pay by himself... with others... Awesome writeup
*- MegaStryke reminises about playing video games with his dad. I love how Monthly Musings generally brings out such quality articles
*- Tehmtnlion continues his scary story


S- I'll call it a series at this point. Michiyoyoshiku plays Guilty Gear. Could use more in-depth impressions of the game
S- Latest dTunes, with a very upbeat selection. I like
S- A cool idea, GamingGoddess continues narrating her playthrough of Parasite Eve
S- Mikey draws sick fetishes on demand!


No contests once again, so enjoy this bonus video of bears actually playing hockey. I'm honestly not sure whether I should be amused or horrified, but I do know they need to pull that goalie. He's not even trying to stop anything!



D- Tubatic makes a call for feedback on cblog improvements
C- SurplusGamer sees the light on the benefits of renting games
F- Come out and play some more AMMO beta tomorrow night!
F- Call for a WipeoutHD FNF tourney tomorrow night. Be there!
C- TewDee organizes games he wants to finish/keep playing with his NEW KEYBOARD
I- Nice intro, and she made Daxelman go crazy. I'd say win-win
S- Pendelton21 give a general life/blogging update
E- LAN party recap, and too much energy drinks... I had a NOS once, and it gave me an irregular heartbeat for the rest of the evening...


N- Monster Hunter G news, and a special edition classic controller
N- Gemsi brings us the EU releases for the week
T- Jonathan Holmes wants to know if we think Dtoid is "anti-Wii"
N- Teta links to some Battlefront 3 footage that surprsingly isn't a RickRoll
T- BSD has Kraken-phobia, and also fails for not mentioning the FF1 Kraken...
T- Tubatic outlines why he plays his 360 more than his Wii
R- I'll refrain from calling this a series until #2 comes out. NihonTiger resurrects Bargain Bin Laden... sort of
T- Thoughs on the DS Rumble Pack- OMG THAT'S A SPACE INVADER SNOWBOARDING!!!
N- How the hell is Mario Kart DS on the best selling games of 2008 list? :S
T- Thefil doesn't think anybody else is looking forward to these games


A- A very nice SMB cake^H^H^ oil painting
F- Sorry, but that gunfight looked really stupid...


C- Don't post a teaser with a link elsewhere for the whole article. Only reason this isn't fail is because it might be a good read...
V- Eminem's L4D advice apparently, although I assume he wasn't talking about L4D when he said that
O- History lesson from LaxLuster. The JRPG joke put it over the top for me
R- Something about hand-egg in Rockband. Don't care much for pro sports myself, but it is a nice use of the character creator
L- A Mega64 video that actually made me laugh. Very well done commentary about 1UP/EGM
C- Covah worries about FF release dates, and for some reason mentions fanboys?


F- An oddly coherent "drunken" "clog" full of delicious hypocracy
F- Seriously? More Obama-mania? I just popped a pimple that was more interesting than this (spoiler: it's currently bleeding)
F-Mark Gormley is from Florida, not "Canada's smallest province" dummy... Not a bad song though, even if the video is pretty bad :p
S- LOLFace didn't look just a few blogs down. Slightly redeemed by Droobies failing at trolling
F- Two fail blogs in one day, both buy the same person and both about the same topic... Am I the only one who's sick of hearing about Obama?

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!
