I made the mistake of reading Holmes review of Guacamelee and watching the Giantbomb guys Quicklook of it. Now all I want to do is sit around, drink cervezas, and sulk that it isn't on the 360.

I ain't even joking, I'm going to make so much Mexican food today.

I've felt like poo for the past few days, so enjoy these pictures of Mexican related stuff in lieu of actual written content.


-I actually do make legit tacos.









* - Best review of Infinite I've read.

* - Shuuda makes some good points about RPGs and pacing. I can't be the only one who finds it jarring when a dragon is willing to wait while I rescue kittens out of a tree and scrape the hills for minerals to blacksmith up a sword.

* - Dark Souls concept runs are the best.

A - Square is out of it's mind. The paper thin obvious attempt to throw Enix under the bus for Square-Japan's failures is sickening.

A - TheKodu talks about indy development.

P - You better believe I'm gonna get down with some tacos, Tuesday or no.

A - Some games are easier than others to lose yourself in. When a game like Tomb Raider tries to make serious points about humanity and life, only to have you fall 30 into concrete in the next scene to no ill effect, it gets hard to take it seriously.

A - Hakael is very hopeful that Ouya and other open platforms will blow the lid off the established games market. But I just don't see it.



-Not mine, but I did make some crazy dios los muertos cookies this Halloween.
I - Shibboleth introduces himself with a blog about the Megaman game that never was.

R - Nilcam takes a last look at Skyward Sword.

T - Woah! There are still people out there playing SWTOR and its still being updated!? N7 will take those interested on a tour of the new content and changes.

R - Cmstrott weights in with a Bioshock Infinite review. I don't want to blow the surprise, but he might have liked it a little bit.



-Why did I never learn to play El Fuerte!?
? - This is video game related because of reasons I'm sure.

R - Notorum feels like some of the hysteria about EA has gone overboard.

R - PlayBoyMan has a very egalitarian mission statement for his future games.

S - Kickstarter ghetto.


-Wrenchfarm

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!
