This is gonna be another quick one, but they can't all be winners or whatevs. I would like to mention a thing I just read about, though. Apparently, DC's show, Gotham, is not quite what some people thought. It's about "all of the classic Batman characters" and how they came to be what we know them as. Think Smallville in a sense.
I'm tired, so I can't tell if that's a great idea or a terrible one. All I know is it's on FOX, so it won't make it to season 2.

Have some pics and CAPS & stuff.



* - RenaudB90 settles this business of the Wii U being hard to develop for, AND he has proof to back it up. Nintendo conspiracies ahoy.

* - Part 2 of Dreamweaver's fascinating list of favorite videogame Doujinshis. Turns out Demon's Souls manga porn is just as bleak as the rest of the universe.

P - Scary Granules is back! The scintilatingly-titled Armoured Core Dildos is episode number twenty. Welcome back :)

A - TheDefenestrator is your go-to-guy when it comes to Warframe. He's got all the helpful tips to playing & understanding this game.



E - MeanderBot continues to share all his lovely photographs from PAX Prime 2013.

I - Say hello to new Dtoider and Texan: Psyforce! Great intro dude!

S - AlphaDeus is looking for some collaborative help on a huge music project of his: AD Infinitum. It's a doozy, so let him know if you're interested.

R - Terry 309 does a "current-gen" review for Warhammer 40k: Space Marine, despite it being last-gen. HMMMMMMM. Check out the review for what is regarded as something of an underrated gem.

T - Better On Holiday gets into his first week of 2014, with the goal to clear his backlog and not buy ANY games all year. See how he's doing so far.

R - JordanLloyd video reviews Gunman Clive, a great little game for 2 bucks.

R - Kooram reviews Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. A pirate's life for me, gents.

T - Om Nom On Souls has a quick but poignant blog, on videogame growth and the use of the Anthology format.



V - The Arm Length Interviews guys get drunk and unbox old technology. I smell a hit.

F - JordanLloyd still hasn't written, like, anything. Just another video plopped down here. I'm not even sure what Dragonball Chi is.

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!
