Bought IKillPxls latest album+Shirt and Machinarium(Will install and play later). I also got Lego:Harry Potter today. Have been playing that with my brother a bit today. I went upstairs ready to go to sleep, and then I remembered (Like I did a couple times today) that it was Friday, so that's why they are a bit late tonight. School is starting up soon, that's gonna be interesting. I am actually kind of looking forward to college 2+ years from now. Worried about workload, but besides that, it sounds interesting.

Ever wonder what what I listened to while recapping (Pausing for the occasional video on the Cblog). Well here it is. I Kill Pxls album, Information Chase(album) by Bit Shifter, Don't you worry 'bout a thing by Stevie wonder, The Led Zeppelin IV album (Sans Stairway to heaven), Three little Birds by Bob Marley, MGS 2 Main theme (Haven't played the games though), Superstition by Stevie Wonder, The Power of Love (BTTF FTW), Saturday Night by Bay City Rollers, and finally Most of Elton John's Captain and the Kid.

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!
