Today, as you ponder, "How do I trick this person?," just remember that there is a line to be crossed. April Fool's can go terribly wrong in several ways, and you don't want to be remembered as that douchebag who ruined it for everyone. Please exercise good judgement and common sense. Remember that idiom: It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye. I'm still so sorry, Tyler.
April Fool's! Go fucking crazy.

Ahem. Hey; at least we get some cool stuff out of this holiday, right? Like Sega's Rappy Bird, or Square Enix putting Garrett in Final Fantasy. Well...that's not great. But you get the idea.

No CAPS today. April Fool's


* - Arsenic13 pleads his case for cock. He thinks male nudity should be more abundant, and nudity in general shouldn't be so taboo in certain media.

* - Char Aznable dips into the Dtoid well of memories and pulls out The GHosts' amazing Destructoid Cards. These were so cool. Maybe...it's time for a new deck?

P - TheDustinThomas' podcast is looking for more questions. This week's episode is about wrestling videogames! Comments, questions, and declarations about what wrestling game is best are welcome.



C - MeanderBot is nearing the end of his process and looking for input on the final Printoid image. Please take a minute to throw in your 2 cents!

F - Scield decides to post the Xbox Friday Night Fights post way early, to give non-forum people a chance to actually get organized before Friday night. Thinking about hosting something on Friday? Well, you've got plenty of time to ponder.

T - PopetheRevXXVIII has some thoughts about Kingdom Hearts, and Street Fighter. What's this BS about frame drops on the PS3 version of SSFIV AE 2012?

T - Blue Odeyssey remembers the good times. Thanks to Final Fantasy X, and X2, he can relive some of those great times. Do you feel the same way about how the landscape has changed?

R - Spazzh20 reviews the original Kingdom Hearts, and it almost sounds like he likes it or something.

R - Lord Spencer's review of the SNES game The Adventures of Batman & Robin.

T - junespirit loves Disney and doesn't care who knows!

A - RenegadePanda totally outclasses the 'official' version of the MGS: Ground Zeroes PS4, with his own design.



F - Terry 309 honors Cybele with this review of Valkyrie Profile 2.

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!
