Cblog recaps 10/12/08 + Randombullisms

Probably not going to buy any of the new games in the next three months, until next year. Not to say I won't play them. Renting games is always the best solution. Unless its a game from two years ago that you can buy at the same price as the rental. Then it is rental rape.


*- MrSadistic writes about a guy proposing to his girlfriend using little big planet. They throw up a little in their mouth. I threw up a little when the front page featured the same story later in the day. That always makes me laugh.
*- Pornstars play video games. This is a news video.
*-An arcade cabinet built from scratch.
*- 10 Things Unstoppable Juggernaut learned this week co opted from aborto cause they his style.


A- Top 5 most annoying fighting character.
A- Something about the Silent Hill series. Title is "Silent Hill Mama I'm Coming Home."
A- Long post about everquest and the mmo experience.


No contests?


B- Happy birthday king friday.
H- Megatron0016 lists off their collection. I should do the same sometime.

T- Call of Duty beta impressions pics
T- Something about SNK fighting games. Title is "Maiden Masher"


M- These guys have balls.

F- Halloween Movie Madness Day 12: The Fifth Element

L- The comments said this video was funny. Title is "you're a wizard"
V- political videos. These have no place on a video game site, except under fail or buried "other video." That's how bad these videos are. Comments section is priceless though.
V- Japan now 6 10 12 2008 Tokyo Game Show 2008 coverage [/url]
V- Halo 4 board meeting.
?- pendelton21 found a strange website. Commenters say its from Silent Hill 2.
?- Darkanubispwner writes " I like gaming but too much." They have put those ringtone things and sound effects from video games on their phones.


S- A shortblog that links to another article about controllers. Controller page isn't so bad, actually some interesting stuff. I know how much you guys rush to see failure, so maybe check this out. They even show off the Colecovision's controller.

-(randombullseye)
Just to say it again, rental rape. If someone can find a worse video game related picture than Jackie Chun Li, I'm open to suggestions to change it. Also its still really big for some reason.

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!
