Gee, I sure do hope everyone wants to hear more about those stompy Titanfall robots!

What? No? Oh, okay... but that's all I've been playing.

Well what else do I have going on? The other day I made a Tumblr account where you can see more stompy robot and videogame related things. You might notice I have an About Me and Portfolio section on there like a big boy real writer. I'm trying to up my game and start writing "for real" so I needed a one-stop shop where people could check out some of my stuff. So yeah, that's a thing.

I've had Jazzpunk staring at me from my Steam library for the past two (three?) weeks. My brother looked me in the eyes the other day and told me I was a "soul-criminal" for not playing it yet.  Hopefully I'll be able to crave out some time for some surreal espionage action over the next few days.

Mercenary Kings is finally out in full-actual-for-real-this-time release and I really want to play that too! If not for the oldschool Metal Slug action, than for the charming pre-release trailer. I have a special place in my heart for soft voices singing about terrible things.






- No topsauce today *sadface*
P - 1st Spooge Office reporting for holodeck clean up duty.

P - The Videogame Rescue podcast/youtube group are talking about Rifts, and books, and faces this week.

R - Gather your Einherjar for this review of Valkyrie Profile 2. I was a HUGE fan of VP1 and it makes me a little sad to have missed the sequel. 

M - DRUM SOLO! DRUM SOLO! DRUM SOLO! Er,- sorry. I watched the new Muppets movie last weekend and I'm still in kind of an Animal mindspace.

A - An advance look at the Drakengard 3 guide book. It will have pictures of those crazy flower face girls just chilling in a cafe apparently, which actually kind of makes me want to check it out. Can we just get a game about girls with flowers coming out of their eye sockets chatting with each other?

? - Your glorious leader and mine, Zombie Orwell, is back. Soak in his mind thoughts, feel his disappointment at the lack of Eminem loin chops in his life, and maybe buy his "transcriptionist's" book.

C - Looks like Joe did a lot of leg work in his Fancypants to put together this series of interviews. Which makes it all the more of a shame that he didn't include any info about who he's interviewing, why it's interesting, or even what he wanted to accomplish. This post really needs a blog.

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!
