LONG BLOG

C-Blogs of 2-22-10 and Qalamarisms

   0


So how was your weekend, ladies and gents? Do anything fun? Me? Just this...



I'll have more later today on my personal blog. For now, it suffices to say that the robot knows how to party. My thanks to CTZ for the invitation and to Niero, R3y, and all the rest for opening up their home so that others could have a good time.

We've got a lot of new members introducing themselves today, some egregious fail, and some most entertaining replies to said fail. Let's get to it.


*-Don't "Turn-up" your nose at this great Musing about Animal Crossing by Beyamor. Go ahead and groan. I can't hear you from here.
*-I think we've all been here. Steph Louise K wrote about the difficulty in performing triage on your game collection.
*-Metallion's Musing: Mario, Mustaches, Miyamoto & more.
*-While this Musing from Sentry wasn't in time for the Love/Hate topic cutoff, the extra time it spent cooking shows. It was worth the wait.
*-SuitcoatAvenger's artblogs are always a treat for the eyes.


A-ZServ considers the role of a 25-year old Hylian in today's modern world.
A-Tectonic thinks the fact that Rapture is the same as before isn't a bad thing.
A-GameZombie wrote about his hatred of QTEs. I guess zombification would slow your reaction times, come to think of it.
A-Novakaine also wrote about QTEs, and the golden rules of how they should and should NOT be used.
S- Stevil's Gamer Obscura feature takes a look at the anime version of Die Hard in this look at Hard Edge, also known as TRAG.
S-Iiiiit's Monday. Time to wish NihonTiger90 a happy birthday and let him know What'd You Get?


No community contests. My Simpsons reference from two weeks ago was most closely identified by Handy. The quote was, "Romance is dead. It was acquired in a hostile takeover by Hallmark and Disney, homogenized, and sold off piece-by-piece. This was said by Lisa in season 6's Another Simpsons Clip Show. If you're wondering what this is all about, check my Qalamarisms from 2-1-10.


I-Welcome to Destructoid, MrWutsGood.
I-Greetings are also in order for Hkun. Welcome!
I-And a hearty hello to NateT, who once turned down a nice big bowl of bullwang soup.
I-A wild InfinityBit appeared! Command?


N-CaseyJones77 shows us that project Natal is being tested under armed guard. Or that it works in the microwave. Something.
V-I usually don't have time to waste watching PS3 fanboys embarrass themselves, but Crunshii shows one really outdoing himself.
T-Haxan's thoughts on the controversy stirred up by Matt Razak's use of the iconic Vietnam gun-to-the-head image over the weekend.
T-Double Decade Gamer never bought Donkey Kong 64, so the memory-expansion fueled joys of Perfect Dark were but a fantasy.
T-MonkeyKing1969 nitpicked Mass Effect 2.
T-Tubatic doles out some quick hits concerning his thoughts on recent gaming news.
T-MrWutsGood wrote a bit about how video games are priced.
T-Drel prefers his games not rely on online for the bulk of their content, please.
T-Steve Scott thinks motion control is stupid.
R-Beegzz reviewed Bioshock 2.


F-James Andrews watches The Tester so you don't have to.


R-MrPlow8 thinks face clocks are obsolete. My Mickey Mouse watch is giving you the finger. Ohh, double deuce now.
R-Rather appropriately, RandomBullseye wrote a random collection of thoughts centered around doing research outside the game.
L-This parody Cblog skewers the second fail down there. Nicely done, Gobun.
L-And then Occam's Electric Toothbrush went and won the whole goddamn internet.
L-At this point it was getting pretty ridiculous, so RenegadePanda did what he could to get things back on topic. Mmm... 64 slices of American cheese.
?-This is another reply to another fail, but I'm still trying to wrap my head around how 007 got that text to scroll in BBcode.


F-Even if all the picture links WEREN'T broken, I get the distinct impression that I wouldn't want to see them anyway.
F-This is just racist. Fortunately our community doesn't tolerate that shit.
F- (Yawwwwwn)

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!
