Oh lord. I would have to pick tonight to get a late start. Welp, you can't see me now but I'm rolling up my sleeves, spitting on my hands, clapping once, wiping the spit from my hands out of my eyes, washing my hands because that was really stupid to spit on them, and then getting to work.


This seemed appropriate. I'm friggin' tired, so it may not in the clear light of day.

I'd be sleeping now but the neighbor's dog is howling at some damn thing or another. Perhaps he is lamenting the lack of a PS3 price drop? Ah, but I get ahead of myself.

As an aside... make sure and hit up your local Best Buy during the buy 2, get one free DS game sale. The sale is in store only, so you can't just buy them online. I picked up Henry Hatsworth, Retro Game Challenge and Chrono Trigger all for less than $50. Score!


*-This happened.
*-Then this happened.
*-And then this happened.
*-And although it was completely unrelated, this happened, and it's one of the most meta things I have ever experienced.
*-WalkYourPath's Musing for this month shares some tales of his days as an Ultima Online Game Master. I love a GM with a flair for the dramatic.
*-Ever wanted to combine your love of gaming with your love of gardening? Rockvillian has fused the two splendidly.


A-Wry Guy's introduction to the shady world of emulation had a profound effect on his life. In this well-written article he explains why.
S-Slim pickings on Gemsi's EU release list this week.
A-Paakaa10 wrote a lengthy blog that extensively researched the role of Opinion, and how it's being crowded out by poo-flinging fanboys in the internet's arena of ideas.
A-Discarded Couch Sandwich channels James Sterling while simultaneously discounting his most recent article. Blatantly.
S-Flamecondor's series of the 20 best Game Boy games wraps up with what is easily the little console's finest offering. Drumroll for....


W-Wanna see a sweet ass guitar? JoeCamNet has one he can show you...


D-Hey Destructoid, whatcha playin'? Has a nice ring to it, but the acronym leaves something to be desired.
S- Cataract was on a game show recently, and the episode aired tonight. Hundred-hand-slap in his honor.
S-Boy beats Bit Trip Beat boss, boastfully blogs. Bravo!
I-Welcome to Destructoid, Titsuziza. Don't suck.
I-Sanduxie introduced themselves today as well. Welcome to Destructoid.
S-4knuckleShuffle made quite the discovery today.
S-MellowBunny found Dtoid New York today. Initiation is commencing as we speak.



N-Puppy Licks brought us some news about the announcement of a new MechWarrior game. If those 'mechs have a button that lets them break wind, he'll be the happiest boy in Australia.
R- Zagieman's review of an overlooked Master System game ironically went overlooked itself. All I can say is that's a damn fine looking game considering the hardware it's running on.
T-I stopped reading this article as soon as I saw that it had Mother 3 spoilers. Eternalplayer 2345 usually doesn't disappoint though--so if you don't mind the spoil, have a look at his take on materialism in games.
R-I saw that tiny text, Entropic Amaranth. Sunset Riders is pretty awesome though.
$-Sodaguy22 thinks you're better off getting the new Monkey Island from Telltale directly rather than Steam. It's hard to disagree with his logic.
T-He came back later to call out some things in Mass Effect.
T-Molotov Cupcake has some eclectic taste in gaming, and a list of 5 games she'd like to see as DLC.
R-SurplusGamer's review of Tales of Monkey Island makes it sounds like a must-buy. Maybe I'll give that a spin this weekend.
T-Dyna Geek thinks Darksiders should be getting more hype than it has so far. Give it time, sir.
D-Like simulated golf? Covah's beta testing Tiger Woods: PGA Tour Online and here he tells you how you can too.
T-NihonTiger90 made a postponed post pertaining to the PS3 price plunge party. And pickles.
R-HydeGFF reviewed the free-to-download typing game Typomagia.
T-Take note, people... a blog you've written elsewhere first makes a poor first impression. Still, Ccesarano wrote a fairly decent piece on Fable 2's shortcomings.
D-Tavendale could use some help beta testing a new version of Triple Triad. Step up, Dtoid army.
$-Want Mechwarrior 3 free? Puppy Licks jump jets his way over with the details.


A-Suitcoat Avenger has been working on a side project. When he said odd job, I immediately pictured a dapper Asian man with a bowler hat.
A-Haxan shared some of his sketches, little bits of art he's made for his blog posts and stuff he didn't use.
F-I know all of those words, but not in that configuration. WHAT are you talking abou... oh. Boobs.
S-Camellia Smile is smiling because something pretty cool came in the mail yesterday.


?-Mr. Dillinger begs forgiveness...for having a job? Dude, that's something to be proud of (or at least grateful for) these days. Just don't try and make a career out of it
R-Entropic Amaranth posted a list of asses. Eeeeeyup.


F-He didn't read the rules, but he seems to have learned his lesson.

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!
