Good evening to you, Destructoid. I apologize if I'm a bit terse tonight, I'm sick with some sort of summer cold. It's always a little strange being stuffed up while the weather outside is so nice, but hell, I guess it's good to have an excuse to stay inside all day. It kinda sucks when you're sick enough to feel bad but not sick enough to take time off from work. My doctor hasn't been all that helpful...

Anyway. On to the recaps, shall we?


*-Discarded Couch Sandwich wrote passionately and at length about one of the many GBA games that time seems to have forgotten: Kuru Kuru Kururin.
*-Garison is a pretty cool guy eh mails cheez games to Australia and doesn't afraid of anything.
*-I'm not entirely certain what I read just now, but I enjoyed it. SephirothX IS THE LAW.


A-Cadtalfryn examined the casual vs. core stuff with a pretty clear head.
S-Gemsi's EU release list features improved waggle.
A-Cwal37 considers the declining use of the adjective "killer" when applied to video games.


Nada.
In honor of all the Left 4 Dead stuff today, here's the Indian version of Thriller.

If you want the "english lyrics," click here.



I-StonedFox offers to buy everyone a drink. Listerine on the rocks here, please. Welcome to Destructoid.
I-And a pretty basic introduction by Thornack. Welcome to Destructoid.

T-Dragonzigg did a postmortem of his E3 predictions.
R-BlurryPhoenix reviewed Punch-Out!! for the Wii.
T-Secret Cow enjoyed Spore a whole lot more than I did. The new expansion does look interesting though, I admit.
N-NihonTiger90 brings a trailer for Backbreaker to the forefront. It's an unrealistic sports game... let's hope it's better than NFL Street.
V-Project Natal is apparently far enough along to debut on the late night talk-show circuit.
T-Flogging a deceased equine regarding the Left 4 Dead 2 whining.
T-TheMizarkShow had some final thoughts on the new motion tech that came out of E3.

D-ProlifikStudio shows off a character design for their upcoming game.
$-Amazon's Gold Box special for today was a PS3 for under $400. Nice find, Crunshii.


A-Suitcoat Avenger made a spiffy drawing of Bill from Left 4 Dead cutting a zombie in half with his AK. I like this style, reminds me of 60's advertising.
F-SephirothX has the first picture of the villian from Iron Man 2.
F-So they're making a King of Fighters movie, and the casting was announced. Furyfire rages with the fury of... fire.


R-WanderingPixel wrote a script for a one-act play about how games are born.
V- DreRox paired the new Forza trailer with a Kanye West song. The result is surprisingly fluid.
R-More ads for IRC by Coonskin05. I maintain what I said about the last batch: they don't do what an ad is supposed to.
V-Trev found this wall-breaking video showing how the Nuke scene in Killzone 2 was set up.
?-ZippyDuDa is adding some folks on PSN and had some thoughts about failblogs.
?-AngryEmoGirl may wish to consider cutting down on the caffiene suppositories.

F-We have Forums, and Twitter isn't hard to sign up for. Use one of those next time if your blog posts are going to be this short.
F-Look, the only ladyboys most people around here care about are the ones with spiky hair and bigass swords.

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!
