C Blogs of 8/28/10 and 8/29/10 + SilverDragonisms

So something REALLY REALLY big happened in my life this weekend, but I don't want to mention what it is yet here, because I plan to make an entire post about it. For now I'll just leave you all wondering what it is I'm talking about ....

I do need to mention that while I've been obsessing over Starcraft 2 the past month or so, I'm sorry to say that's all about to come to an end. I'll be taking a break from it, starting Tuesday, to play Metroid: Other M. I'm reviewing the game for Gamer Limit and I need to try and get through it as fast as possible. As soon as that's done with though I'll be back to my old stomping grounds in Starcraft 2.

Anyways, I don't really have much else to say right now. This was a crazy and awesome weekend and I can't wait to make a post telling everyone all about it. Until then, enjoy these weekend recaps.

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!
