Cblog recaps 10/18/08 + Randombullisms

First: A big thanks to Yojmbo for making this awesome header. Nice work.

Second: A big thanks to Podtoid for letting me make Bonerquest. What was once a joke, now is a crummy world of plot holes and spelling errors. No really. I've outlined the majority of the game and actually have some things ready. My big concerns right now are the design of the monsters keeping with 8-bit look and of course living up the hype of Bonerquest itself. If anyone would like to test play it in a few days, that would be really awesome. Soon as I'm done recapping its back to work on Bonerquest.

A snippet of dialog from a towns person.

"You look like a man on a quest! Oh you need help with a boner. I can't help you with boners."

Did I miss the failure today? I always ask myself "Did I miss a post?" So if I missed a post, that's your failure for today. I worry if I erase things by accident as well or if I'm putting things in the wrong sections. Almost failed a few things, but I guess I was feeling nice today. I won't be so kind tomorrow night.



Back to Bonerquest talk! Hooray!

What music should be put in Bonerquest?

What do you like/dislike about role playing games? I'd like to know so I can have a better idea of what people want and don't want in Bonerquest.

What do you expect from Bonerquest?

Why does every question end in Bonerquest?

Will you accept the Bonerquest?

No seriously, that's the tag line. "Will you accept the Bonerquest?"

That's it for Saturday's 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!
