If you're wondering why today's 'caps are more than 24 hours late, well, you can blame that all on me. Or mostly anyway. I was all ready to do `em last night when the server gave me a mysterious "HTTP 500 Internal Server Error." Any time after it came up though? That's all on me. I'm not clever like MegaStryke is, so no theme for this catch-up recap tonight I'm afraid. Wait... Catch-up? Catsup? Ketchup? Hell, I'm tired enough that that can be the theme.




*-Handy applied SCIENCE! to that most curious of beasts, the professional videogame reviewer. I do believe Tactix would approve.
*-Stevil's Musing reiterates that the only constant in this life is uncertainty.
*-I really liked this blog from goretexfogg, who played through an older game with a fresh perspective due to some familial influence.
*-KillMyEgo has been practicing using Maya, and came up against a familiar face.
*-Awesome Ex Machina raises a great point in his Monthly Musing... where do we go from here?


A-Prolifikstudio has been playing COD: MW2 in 3rd person mode, and offers some pointers for any who'd like to try it.
A-Lord the Night Knight thinks the Wii remake of Dead Rising could do with a makeover.
M-Super Saiyan 19 fears for The Future in this Musing.
S- Darthix' game-a-week challenge is off to a solid start with Portal.
S-When Monday comes, it's time to let NihonTiger90 know What'd You Get?
P-Your Princess is in another Podcast episode 4 is now available.
P-While not technically a podcast, you have the option of listening to STFUAJPGM (the "M" is for Music) and you'd be doing yourself a disservice by not doing so.


Not a thing.



E-If you're close enough to San Francisco to know where San Mateo is, you might want to check out the NARP DtoidSF will be throwing this Saturday.
E-If you're going to PAX, you could totally bring my avatar with you. He'll split transportation costs and is a great listener.*
I-Kudegra's introduction is primarily about the game Killing Floor. It's not really a floor, it's more of a steel grate that allows material to sluice through so that it can be collected and exported. In any case, welcome to Destructoid.
I-Greetings also to Xenomus, who really seems to understand this whole intro thing.


N-NihonTiger90 beat the front page with this story about major retailers cutting back on what Wii games they'll allow on their shelves.
R-Nilcam reviewed his new Fightstick he got to play Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.
R-TewDee sorta reviews the Korg music maker for the DSi.
P-NightV gave an extensive breakdown of what he thinks of the M.A.G beta.
T-Gilgamesh1317 had an...inconsistent experience in his local game store.
T-AJN256 and Rev. Anthony would probably get along just fine.
T-Blindfire can't stand unlocking stuff in his fighting games. What do you think?
T-ThemDerp longed for the good ol' days, until he had to experience them.
T-Nekobun wrote at length about his experiences in the Phantasy Star universe.


S-WastelandTraveler let us all know about this mounted alien-head thing that would look so, so very badass above someone's fireplace.


R- It's cold out there, y'all. That's why liberals have switched from saying "Global Warming" to "Climate Change."
V-PreacherMan89 made a PAIN video.
V-Everyday Legend posted this video showing off the new Ultras in Super Street Fighter 4. I'm a little disappointed Balrog's don't involve ear-biting.
V-TewDee posted a video of a discussion about the different flavors of First Person Shooters.
V-Lotta videos Monday. This one is of de BLOO winning SF4, forever.
C-This would make an excellent forum post. A blog, not quite so much.
C-Same as above.



The only fail today would be in watching this video through to the end. Like I did. Repeatedly.

*Avatar will not actually split transportation costs. If it did, I might be able to go in person.

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!
