Everyone knows the original Power Rangers theme song, right? How many are you are familiar with the new themes from later seasons? Thanks to the Disney Channel (as well as having a four-year-old cousin who watches all the shit I watched as a child), I've sampled a little of just about every season of the series, and I gotta say... I dig the theme songs. Sure, they're the cheesiest of cheese and sound like they were all recorded the same afternoon by the same group, but I love that butt rock garbage! I love how there is some mandate that the lyrics contain the same "Go! Go!" chant in every incarnation. It's a carry-over from the Fox Kids days, I assume. Ever realize how every Fox Kids cartoon theme song mentions "Go! Go!" or "Gotta go!" or some other permutation? So damn lazy.

The Rangers will be coming back soon, this time on Nickelodeon, and I can't wait to see what schlock they cook up this time! I'm dead serious, though. If someone today offered me a role of a Ranger in an upcoming series, I would say, "Fuck yeah!"

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!
