Hey Everybody, I'm filling in for Silver Dragon's weekend caps. Hope you guys had a good weekend. I hid eggs with my family and we threw them at each other, cause you know that's what Jesus wanted.

So what games have I played since last time I recapped? I beat BioShock, I spent about 30 hours in Rapture cause I got almost everything. Thought the gameplay was very good, but I think the story was a little too in your face, and could have made better use of the underwater setting. I beat 3D Classics: Kirby's Adventure which was surprisingly amazing, the subtle 3D effects look so good. I beat Donkey Kong Country Returns which had some very creative level design. I 100% Skyward Sword, although I don't think the game is a perfect 10 I enjoyed most of it. My gripe with the game is it has too much fluff, the dozen fetch quest it forces you to do to progress the story just weren't fun, they were boring so I took a month break from the game. The sidequest however were really good, hence why I did all of them. In my opinion this game had some of the best boss fights in the series, specifically that golden 6 armed boss.They did a great job with the characters too. Peatrice in particular has become one of my favorite characters in the Zelda universe. Although I really liked it I understand why some people were disappointed by it.

Onto the caps, lots of good stuff. I'm happy these 10 things blogs are still booming.

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!
