LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 8/14/10 and 8/15/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

So I've taken a break from Starcraft 2 to read the cblogs and present you with this recap. I'm honestly not sure how much longer I'm going to be playing the game as hardcore as I have been. I've probably put in well over 100 hours in the last 3 weeks, and I'm kind of getting burned out on it. Besides playing tons and tons of multiplayer, I'm presently spending lots of time playing through the single player campaign again on a harder difficulty setting. Once I'm done with that, I'll probably be spending a lot less time with the game.

A lot of my friends were shocked when I posted my official review last week on Gamer Limit and I didn't give it a perfect 10. I mean don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the game, but there are a few small flaws that kept it from the perfect 10 score. If Blizzard could make a couple of tweaks to the multiplayer balance I think it could be perfect.

The next big I'm looking forward to at this point it Metroid: Other M. I really wanted to play it at E3 this year, but the line was typically well over an hour long and I didn't want to waste that much time waiting for a game that was coming out in only a few months. Rest assured, I'm super excited about this game and can't wait to dive into it.

Well, I think that's enough about me for one night. Let's get on with the weekend recaps shall we.

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!
