Heh.

I thought I was getting off light tonight, but-- What's that you say, Admiral?



It's a trap? Why, whatever do you mean?


Ohhhh. Undocumented feature GET!

Oh well. At least I caught it before this post went live. I guess that all Haiku version of the recaps I was gonna do will have to wait.

Recaps are below.
Writing haikus isn't hard,
just time consuming.


*-Blehman reveals the SECRETS behind everyone's favorite geriatric samurai. Somewhere deep in North Carolina, a man sits weeping silently into his luxuriant beard.
*-Got a case of the Mondays? WalkYourPath has the cure.
*-Say Hi to Kauza's mom, won't you?

S- Macaratti DOES IT WITH FURY when talking about his personal hero, Godzilla.
S-BulletMagnet's Obscurer Tribune series takes the gaming news of the future and puts it in media style of the past. Somehow, it works.
S-Psst. What'd You Get? Keep it quiet. No, you have it all wrong. It's not me that wants to know, no no. It's NihonTiger90. That's right. Keep it under your hat. He has ears everywhere.
S-Tankitsune played Postal last week. Pity him.
M-ShadowKatRegn's tribute to the Forgotten looks at a game inspired by the works of Edgar Allen Poe.
P-Drunkcast episode 10 is recording tonight, with special guest Morgan Webb!*


C-Boomsling is inviting all Destructoid members to play CoD4 for a chance to win some SteelSeries 3H headphones.

C-Phalanxx is giving away a Johnson.

S-Solgrim just celebrated his first Destructiversary. Glad to have you.
S-Xyzliac wanted some advice on a spending conundrum.
I-Welcome to Destructoid, Jinrai.
I-Greetings to DrCGP, who claims he's a real Doctor. Unlike Dr. Mario. Or Dr. Tran.


N-RAB's hyped for the new Street Fighter announcement, whatever it might be.
N-Oh look! That's what it was.
N-Hairy shark confirmed for Continuum Shift. Oh, wait, no.
N-For Hriki, Steam may be the answer for acquiring lesser-known titles that are refused classification in Australia.

R-Roager enjoyed the featured Indie Nation game Time Fcuk enough to do his own review.
T-Oh, Sanious, of COURSE Capcom is gonna milk Street Fighter IV until the udders are blackened and shriveled. Look at how many versions of Street Fighter II are on the Virtual Console if you need any further confirmation.
T-Sparroo's easy to please, asking for things that have already been added to Gran Turismo 5.
T-Calebyte's noticing there's less time for games just as you start making enough money to buy them yourself. Sucks how that works out, doesn't it?

A-If you like bright colors and cute game controllers you should have a look at this poster Axor made.
M-Balzac. (Uncontrollable giggling)

R-I've got nothing against anyone who loves Okami. I don't think you'll find many here who do.
R-So, what would happen if a team of gaming's all-stars faced off against Samit's beloved New York Yankees? GTMoney has the answer.
V-Segata Sanshiro was the best marketing campaign Sega ever came up with. Truly deserving of the very first "Badass of the Month" award.
V-How to make fake blood shoot out of people. Just in time for Halloween!
C-This is kind of all over the place. You're presenting yourself as a psycho but doing "hard" gaming news. It's a little tough to follow.

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!
