Cblog recaps 11/23/08 + Randombullisms

   0

Dependable old weekend recaps on a Monday morning. Who doesn't love that? Sorry about my attitude yesterday I was running late that morning, I had worked a full shift the day before, and was trying to get all my stuff together. It isn't exactly easy putting these things together, and I apologize for not being able to post this last night.

About to play a few rounds of Call of Duty 4 then finish up a review I'm writing for another game. Still putting off hooking my playstation one up.

And here you go, your starting line up on the Destructoid recaps! YAL READY FOR THIS DOO DOO DEET DEET DOO DOO DEET. DUNT DUNT DUNT DUH! YAL READY FOR THIS!?


*- Free Dr. Pepper. I didn't sign up but was aware of this. Oh well.
*- All I saw was "Mother F- Nintendo" and I knew this post should be put in the top picks. I've imagined this to be a hilarious post about how angry this poster is at Nintendo. I can't wait to read it later.


A- Someone is organizing what they want to write on their blog. Good luck.
A- Something about a toilet and video games.
M- Monthly Musing: Banjo Kazooie
S- Castlevania 2 from Random Select series.
S- Mega Man 7 from Random Select series.




D- A long time member has a death in his family. Everyone put him in your prayers.
D- Another Destructoid member is dealing with a death in the family. Again, our prayers go out to you in your time of grief.
E- Miami Narp
E- Another Miami Narp post. Also possible Gears 2 spoilers, if I find out that what they said is in the game, I will probably not care.
E- A third post about the Miami Narp. I won't read this one, that last one told me way more than I ever wanted to know.
I- A new members introduction post. Welcome to Destructoid, I love you.
?- Miss Jim all you want, he's American now. I for one would like to welcome our new english overlord.


R- A Gears 2 review.
R- Another gears 2 review.
S- Short blog about gears 2.
T- Fallout 3 Disappointments
T- Another Nintendo post. From the opening lines, it implies they're angry. It helps that I read everything this poster writes like a cartoon parody of the X-men.
T- It says Spoiler Free thoughts on Fable 2, but I won't risk reading about it at all.
V- A posters little brother made a half life 2 video.
V- Chrono Trigger video advertisements.
?- Something about Pokemon
?- Something about Game Informer
?- This member wants to play Left 4 Dead once a week.
?- Something about the Zune playing games.


A- Art dump.
A- Gamer arts and crafts sale
A- Game charms. Also as far as I can tell this is a new member, so welcome to Destructoid! Also according to the comments and context clues on their profile, their a female gamer. No pictures of themselves. No plugs over and over for other websites they write on. More girls should post like this.


F- Post about Old Boy with WILL SMITH.
N- Someone killed them self on a web cam. A destructoid member writes some reactions. Comments aren't bad to read either.
?- Podcast needs someone else. I guess this goes in other.


No fail on Sunday. Just like hard liquor.

My avatar is evolving...

Into this hilarious photograph. From this classic scene.

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!
