Hello fellow Dtoiders I will be filling in for ManChild today. I recently got my Link Figure and it's amazing, Figma makes my favorite posable toys and I'm so happy Nintendo is finally getting some proper figures made of their franchises, I already have the Samus, and plan on getting Pit, I even have a Layton Revoltech even though he's technically a Level 5 character. So close to being able to recreate Smash in figure form.

I finally got around to beating Resident Evil 5 today, and I'm a bit mixed. On one hand it's inferior to Resident Evil 4 in every way, it's not even a little scary, a lot of the boss fights are lame, and some levels dragged on. On the other it's a really good local co-op game. It's some of the most fun I ever had with a local co-op game. What sets this game apart from most other co-op games is that you have to constantly work together by trading ammo/supplies back and forth, saving your partner, and building strategies together such as one player becoming bait and the other sneaking up on the enemy. Most co-op games are really about playing the game about the same time and competing over who gets the higher score and more kill. this game is more about surviving together and cooperating which was really fun when it came together. If I had played this game Solo with the computer AI I probably would not have liked it very much. It's a shame so many people are saying that 6 wasn't very good, as I adore 4 and thought that 5 was some decent fun. I'm definitely going to have to check out Revelations on 3DS.

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!
