LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 6/26/10 and 6/27/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

After my 10 day hiatus to Los Angeles and E3, Iím back in action recapping the weekend cblogs. I have to tell you that it feels great to be back, but I already miss all the awesome people I met last week during E3. Thereís so much to tell you all about, but unfortunately I donít really have time right now. I do plan on posting a couple of Cblogs to recap my incredible week, as well as to share some pictures of my experiences. Be on the lookout for those sometime this coming week.

I want to send a major shout out to Cadtalfryn for covering my butt while I was away. He did an absolute awesome job handling the weekend recaps. I actually got to meet him at the Scott Pilgrim Dtoid party while I was in LA, and Iím so glad I had the opportunity. Not only did I have a blast hanging out with the guy, he was also nice enough to drive me, Sean Carey, and Andrew Kauz back to our hotel room at the end of the night when we were drunk. We even ran into some trouble with the law on our way back, but Cadtalfryn was able to get out of it without any trouble at all.

I also got to meet a ton of other Dtoiders while I was in LA, including Jim Sterling, Chad Concelmo, Ben Perlee, Hamza, Hollie Bennet, Puppylicks, Technophile, and the list goes on and on and on. There are honestly too many to name here. Like I said, I plan on talking more about my adventures later this week when I get around to posting my E3 blogs. Just know that last week was one of the best weeks of my entire life. Iíll never forget it.

Before I go, let me just rant a second about a new article I posted today on Gamer Limit. The article itself is about 3D gaming on the PS3 and how, after trying it at E3, Iím very disappointed with what Iíve seen so far. The article is a huge success right now, with tons and tons of hits, but the only people whoíve commented are angry Sony fanboys who want to crucify me. I honestly donít know how Jim puts up this kind of shit. Do these people even take the time to read my article? Iím trying to not let it bother me, but after a while it just begins to wear me a bit thin. Ugh, oh well.

Thatís enough about me for one week. Now letís get to your regularly scheduled weekend recaps.






*-Technophile tells an inspiring story about how his love for video games changed his life forever. You seriously need to read this!

*-Jonathan Holmes posts every single video he did this year at E3. The man is an E3 video GOD! I had the chance to meet him in the press room, but everytime I saw him he was busy as hell editing video.

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!
