Hey, everyone, how was your week? Mine was pretty cool, I didn't play much games, but my girlfriend came back from Ireland so I'm pretty much happy.

More World Cup news. After an abysmal display, England are out of the World Cup. I will say that it is a travesty that Lampard's goal was disallowed, but it still probably wouldn't have made too much of a difference. Oh well. Cue 40 years of "The Stolen Goal Scandal".

There were two games yesterday, Holland vs Brazil, and Uruguay vs Ghana. I personally found Holland vs Brazil a bit boring, but it was good to see somebody beat Brazil at last. Uruguay vs Ghana was just spectacular. It had everything really - goals, saves, handballs and penalties. It was sad to see Ghana go out but they had a really good chance to win the game which they sadly failed to take.

Today's videos are something that I found through RiotMonster. I assume that a few of you will already be familiar with these videos, but they are very funny. [EDIT: For some reason, it won't let me embed the video. Have a link instead.

Finally, today was a pretty bog-standard day for the blogs. Good Topsauces, a ton of Wordtoid, and unfunny fails. Enjoy.

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!
