Bruce Campbell is still the best thing about Burn Notice, and everything about that show is pretty good.

Huh? Nah. Aw, c'mon. What're you talking about? It's only... eight, nine, carry the one... seventeen, eighteen hours? That's pretty damn late!

So, yes, mea culpa, my apologies to all the recapketeers out there. I won't go into why Monday is going up after Tuesday except to say that sometimes, quite frequently in fact, I really wouldn't mind having a different job. Anyway. Lots of Topsauce yesterday, I'm sorry I made you wait for it. Let's get to it as swiftly as possible.


*-Short, sweet, and to the point: Yes, yes I DO like videogame music. Thank you for asking, and thank you even more for sharing.
*-Eh, it's a Beyamor musing. You know it's good.
*-Bushofghosts made up some truly sw33t stickers based on her Astro headset entry, and you can have one if you want. And want you will.
*-Commentoid is just getting started, and already Monodi tried to break it. Looks like the community is onboard with this new feature though.
*-A night of altered consciousness left Om Nom on Souls a little introspective and a lot more receptive to games without stories.
*-LK404 knows how to make Sonic good again. Let's hope at least some of these suggestions make it into Sonic Colors.
*-BulletMagnet's Magnet school concludes with this, the graduation ceremony. I can almost hear Pomp and Circumstance in the background.

I-Greetings to MJW282, who somewhat surprisingly isn't an adbot. Or maybe is just a reaaally good one.
I-And welcome to Bear Guts, who didn't give us much to go on. At least the banner's nice.

H- Winged Kraby showed off his room, is spectacular Blur-O-Vision!

I tried this stuff at PAX. It tasted like liquid SweetTarts and gave me a rapid heartbeat for about an hour.

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!
