Another one from this asshole? Yes, indeed. With some of the other Recappers busy or simply not available, I'm picking up the slack like your dad's underwear. I was planning on writing a bit about how poorly Rockstar seemed to have prepared for GTAO, but there's a couple of blogs that cover it fairly well. At the very least, I encourage everyone to give as much feedback as possible, and don't let up. You deserve what you paid for.

In other tangents, life is still one Simpsons reference after another. The new Treehouse of Horror premiered tonight, probably because they figured doing it in October was better than November. Besides a very cool opening by Guillermo Del Toro, the first act was okay, and that's it. It was a reminder that it needs to end soon and free up that time slot for something new...in all probability...Seth MacFarlane will get yet another show... FFS. Thank goodness for Bob's Burgers.
I also realize I shouldn't have watched it before writing up SATURDAY'S CAPS but that's neither here nor there.



A - taterchimp fell in love with EDF (welcome, brother!) and wrote about Insect Armageddon. He liked it so much that he did some 'Let's Plays' for it, with varying levels of technical success.



F - Weekend Warriors + a patch that didn't quite fix things

T - Roberto Plankton shares his thought and pictures made during Game City Vienna. There's even a cameo or two (of sorts) from other Dtoiders.

T - Skid Row Trash has some gripes & a cautionary tale from the stuttering Grand Theft Auto Online.

T - Another blog with some serious complaints about GTA Online; from drhuxtable. Get it together, Rockstar.

S - Kokopuff presents us with a selection of fan-made Team Fortress 2 t-shirts. Some of these designs are pretty good.

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!
