Cblog recaps 10/26/08 + Randombullisms

   0

Hey guys, been playing the new games yet? I've not even played Mercenaries 2, let alone Fable or Saints Row 2. Both copies of Dead Space were rented out last week at blockbuster. Maybe this week I can pick up one of these new games? As always, you can just add: randombullseye to your xbox friends list and we can play something sometime.
Oh and that show True Blood. I like that show. That's a fun show.

F Kitsu posts a blog that they say will be hidden. They also write that their avatar is "rubbish." Rather short, and why post something that will get hidden later?

-(randombullseye)
Oh and Bonerquest is still in development by the way. Keep your eyes open for it. Will you accept the Bonerquest? No seriously, will you accept it?

Also please, no one notice that this isn't the usual time for the recaps. It isn't early morning at all, just think of it as late (er) night, with sunlight.

First Edit: Also if any of the links don't work, tell me in the comments and I can fix it later. Notepad caused a particularly awful screw up when I pasted over into the blog box and I had to do backspace through every link to get enter spaces out. So it is very possible I erased something.
Second Edit: It seems to still not be working, I don't know what is wrong.

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!
