LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 04/07/14 + mcgeeisms

Tomorrow (Today) is the Smash Bros. Nintendo Direct! It's at 3:00 P.M. PST, and can be watched over here. It should be roughly a half-hour long, and will surely contain some cool reveals. No release date yet, but at least a window. Bring your popcorn and bingo cards.

So, in the usual pre-direct fashion, it's speculation and wishlist time! Here's sobuilderme things I want out of the new 3DS/Wii U release.
-No fucking tripping. #1 on the list
-A new level builder. The level creator tool in Brawl was great fun to play with, and the sharing/highlight feature was so cool. With a stylus to build quicker and an even better online service, this feature could extend the life of the game very much.
-Miiverse integration. No-brainer. Take a cue from DKCTF, and add the ability to upload replays please.
-More varied representation. There are some Smash mainstays, sure, but there's so many characters that haven't been in, or came into existence post-Brawl that deserve a spot. There are already lots of returning characters, but I'm more impressed with the new ones. More of that! Nintendo has lots of new faces to use. Character wish list: Dillon, Mickey Mouse, Patricia Wagon, AiAi, Wreck-it-Ralph, Joe Musashi, Amigo, Yoshimitsu, Amadeus (Trine 2,) Captain Rainbow, Commander Video, Chase McCain, Kalas, Scoroge McDuck, Rayman, a Wonderful 101 hero, Travis Touchdown, Maxwell (Scribblenauts,) Pac-Man, Finn & Jake, Shantae, Bayonetta, Juan (Guacamelee,) Higgins, The Player (RCR,) Phoenix Wright, Rusty, Simon Belmont, Tempo (Harmoknight,) Shoko Ozora, Bomberman, Ameterasu, Gray Fox, Cooking Mama, and Alex Trebeck. Err...maybe not that last one.
As much as I want to see my favorites from younger days, Nintendo could use some of this new blood. Anyway, I could go on with my list forever, so...
-Online tournaments
-Communities. Like Mariokart 7, but with some of the features from Wii Sports Club, where you can compare and compete with other communities.
-Call it Super Smash Bros. Brouhaha

What about y'all? What things do you want to see from the new Smash Bros games? There's a gigantic pool of Nintendo history to pull from.

S - OpiumHerz has a new entry is 'Season 2' of The Worst Thing About Censorship. This one is about a new game: South Park, The Stick of Truth. I haven't seen black bars as censorship in a long time.

A - How sonic429 finally came into the world of handheld gaming proper: The GBA story.

A - SongSeven has some thoughts about games and supplemental entertainment. Are games that require your full attention better than those that don't?





T - Pixielated has some ideas for a new Goonies game, to coincide with the new movie.

T - lennasuzaka1988 has questions about streaming, and may even start streaming herself.

R - Spazzh20 reviews the superb Max Payne 3.



V - HybridRain talks about the tragedy that was Game_Jam, and the possibility of a 'reality show' based around game development.

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!
