C-Blogs of 16/09/09 +Cadtalfrisms

   0


Hey everyone. I haven’t been around much to fill in lately, but here are some c-blog recaps that are actually rather punctual for a change.

I have been a bit busy as of late: moving into a new house, being back at college and getting a shiny new PS3 have consumed a lot of my time. I recently went to a Dtoid LA NARP for the first time where I met Chad Concelmo. I met the Pokemon Trainer from There Will Be Brawl the other day. We were drunk. I just finished inFAMOUS...which is as fun as it was shit, much like Mirror's Edge is as amazing as it was awful, but perhaps I'm just jaded.

The recapping team has had a bit of a rough week, so I decided to put this ahead of the other things I need to get done tonight...so I hope you loveable bastards enjoy. Now, I would love to do nothing more than veg out for the rest of the evening playing Bit Trip or Mirror’s Edge, but I’ll be working into the wee hours creating a topographical map of my town with geographic information system software.

Tonight is going to be fun.




*-Blehman is caught in a love triangle
*-MegaStryke looks back at Onimusha Blade Warriors…if Resident Evil, Samurai’s and Super Smash Bros got thrown into a blender would the game be any good? The answer may surprise you.

P-Refused Classification records tonight.

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!
