Hey all.

I was going to write something great here (Riiight, suuure I was) but then I ended up talking to Megastryke on Facebook for an hour. So I think I'll take a page out of SilverDragon's book and just start things off with a couple awesome pictures of a squid.



This thing's called a Vampire Squid. Does that rule, or what? Images came from here.


*-Keep a shot glass full of eye bleach handy for Handy's new feature, Fanart Flops. (NSFW)
*-Help Elsa celebrate her 250th conversion of a thinking, feeling human into so much fender meat.
*-LK404 has some great tips on how to make the most out of your gaming budget.
*-Tubatic's one of the biggest Mega Man fans around, and his predictions for the upcoming Mega Man Universe have me getting excited.


A-Trioptical thinks a recent announcement in M.A.G. is the gaming equivalent of chocolate-covered-bacon-on-a-stick.
A-Enkido and Bluth's Banana Stand have been duking it out in the C blogs regarding how pretend violence and real violence are related. Interesting stuff, but Beyamor's right about the teeny tiny monkey brains.
S- Magnet School's "electives" course causes Elsa to get all alliterative.
M-SAMA1984's Musing looks at the idea of taking a character and all their personality traits from one game to another.
P-Podsumaki recorded episode 9 tonight, all about MORTAAAAL KOMMMBAAAAT!


W-Beyamor's contest post says that in a way, everyone is a winner! But in another, more accurate way, Stevil is the winner.


S-DtoidSF had a great time over the weekend, attending the Final Fantasy concert called Distant Worlds.
B- Happy belated Birthday, Metallion! And thanks for the Apple Pie recipe.


T-LoopyChew has some concerns about the upcoming Power Gig: Rise of the Six String.
T-Though it's months from release, Ninjasnake thinks people are being too hard on BulletStorm.


A-Corduroy Turtle's girlfriend added some awesome artwork to his game-related limericks.
F-Gyrael wrote a beautiful blog about what cinema means to him.
S-BenelliM4 demonstrates a possible reason why Topher used to use the term "Yard Sale" when something was awesome.


C-This isn't formatted very well, and the content gives off a strong whiff of troll. Watch your ass.
C-I'll give ya a pass since the forums are down, but this would really be more appropriate over there.
C-Same deal. I hope the forums come back soon.


F-It's a great song, but it's not a blog.


-(Qalamari)

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!
