Hey guys and girls, who's ready to be horribly depressed?!?


You may wonder why this video is heading the recaps tonight. Well, if you listened to the most recent episode of Podtoid, the usual suspects were discussing this Cracked.com article about soul-crushing TV series finales. Having experienced this for himself, one of our regulars took it upon himself to create something the Henson company will probably never forgive.


*-To save myself an ass-kicking by Char Aznable, this gets the top honors tonight. Good thing it's actually well written and worthy of the nod.
*-Clever title? Check. Well written article? Double Check. Topsauce? Checkmate.


A-This article on Killer 7 by Mooks introduces the titular 7. Sounds like something I should play.
P-Podsumaki is recording episode 4 this evening. Probably done by now, come to think of it.
P-S Pastic did an interview with Raymond Herrera of 3volution productions that you may want to check out if you're interested in games' audio.


C-Mark Oleski is giving away a beta code for StarCraft 2. But you don't want that. Not as much as I do.


Nothin'.

Once again, congratulations to Anthony and to Ms. Davis. I missed out on the lovefest last week, but this seemed appropriate.


N-DerrickH posted something newsworthy that might also be appropriate in our contest area. How's 10,000 Microsoft spacemoney sound?
T-With a new set of Pokemon games just over the horizon, NihonTiger90 wants to know, what do you think should be changed?
T-SocialNorms has been playing the Halo: Reach beta and shared some impressions.
T-JustKarol wonders how nostalgia figures in to the incessant lists of the BEST GAMES EVER.
R- Daniel Campbell posted a video review of thinly-veiled Cuba simulator Tropico 3.
R-Ramundi let you know what he thinks about the DS space combat title Infinite Space.
R-As well as the monster hunting title Monster Hunter Tri.


A- Faith and her perler beads fly in the face of Mr. Ebert's notion that nothing associated with gaming can be art.
M-Dread Pirate Rob.. uh, Stefan Turnbull gave dTunes a buccaneering theme today.
M-Stereotoid dumped a whole mess o' music on your sorry asses.


L-Jayce Diaz and friends put together a video parody of the opening to Resident Evil.
R-Bizzarre video from PDP Candace adding red glow to the blue.
V-I might have topsauced this if not for the godawful, ear-rape audio. Watch it on mute.



F-Competition or no, doing nothing other than stating your intent to write a blog later lands you at the bottom of our little list here.
F-Yes. Pelicans are weird. Great in Pokemon though, 'cause they can use Surf AND Fly.

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!
