C Blogs of 09/17/13 + Wrench's big launch day

   0


Was everybody as excited as I was today? The big launch that we've all been waiting for, finally here!

MECHWARRIOR ONLINE IS NO LONGER IN BETA!!!!!11!1!

Cue the sad trombones.



Yes, of all the days for MWO to limp onto the official scene and line up, firing squad style, for the inevitable volley of mediocre reviews, they chose to do it on what the day that what is arguably the last big game of this generation hit the streets.

Sheer. Utter. Madness.

So yeah, long story short:

GTAV is great. It takes everything you like about the series, ratchets it up, while cutting a lot of what was holding it back.

- MWO's launch is nothing more than them peeling off the beta sticker. Seriously, no new modes, U.I, community warfare, or any of the other malarkey they've been promising for over a year now. Again, someday industry heads will use MWO as a cautionary tale, a spook story about a studio that managed to strangle their golden goose and somehow managed to alienate a fanbase that had a worse case of Stockholm syndrome than Patty Hearse.

That's it for me, I've got banks to rob.

* - Some might say it's slightly too early for Halloween-esq spooookiness. But they're just wound up because ghosts are haunting their buttholes.

* - I never knew Digimon was so scatologically obsessed.

* - Resident Evil 1 might look laughable by today's standards, but not so long ago, it sent an entire generation of gamers scurrying under their covers in fear.

A - And with another GTA release, we have another slew of sensational headlines. You could set your watch by it.

A - Tick, tock, tick, tock.

A - The Suffering was never a game I got into, but DustinThomas sure has some fond memories for the series.

A - Apes in wrap-around sunglasses. How can you not love that?

S - I didn't understand anything from this blog or the accompanying video, but I guess this is some kind of crazy challenge run like 4 White Mages in Final Fantasy, so good on em. Didn't see any of those poop monsters make an appearance either.



- You can totally get Max's terrible parrot shirt in GTA V! So I shaved Mike bald, gave him a penance beard plus aviators of shame, and enjoyed playing as a grumpy, slightly overweight, middle-aged burnout again!
T - Taking time between bong rips to complain about GTA's driving.

C - I hate "blogs" that are just another place for someone to hock their Youtube reel.

S - Even lazier than normal, couldn't be bothered to embed his spam.


- I'm sorely tempted to get this shirt in real life, but I also have to weight the very real possibility of my girlfriend dumping me because of it.

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!
