Cblog recaps 12/07/08 +Randombullisms

   0

So yeah, another day, and another recap. Everyone have fun the new video games are out. Bonerquest might come out soon. New games I've bought are fun stuff. I like RC Cola. Hot Fries are awesmoe. Push ups that are grape and red (strawberry, cherry, or rasbery? I don't know) flavored are the most amazing things ever. Besides Phis Food Ben & Jerrys. That shit is amazing.

Add me on xbox live, we can play some video games.



I didn't pick anything gain.


A- Some predictions about the Spike TV video game awards.
A- Someone wants a fighting game for Christmas. I'll let you read to see which fighting game it is.
A- Post about an older game that flew under the radar. I don't think I've heard of it and I try to be aware of as many games as possible. Good find, I want to know more.
S- That japan trip has another day and another post.
G- Some tips for that zombie game.
?- Altered Beets posts something.
?- This guy got a nice haul of video game stuff. Why am I putting it under word? Other or culture would work better, but I'm already up here.


C- A contest update on the weekend? This one is the Street Fighter IV contest about beating a member. This is the first weeks update.[/b]


B- A birthday post.
D- I don't even want to post a link to this. This always makes me sad to read this sort of post.
I- A first post, something about Metal Gear Solid. Destructoid welcomes its new community members.
?- A member gives us their week in gaming. This goes under community.


N- A board game I heard about is coming to xbox live. This is news, I guess.
N- A game called Valkyria Chronicles is pretty cheap at everyones favorite american game store.
T- Something about Persona.
T- Something else about Shin Megami which I think is also Persona.
T- Fallout 3 post.
T- Final Fantasy Eleven, someone considers playing it again. I passed on that one, am I missing anything?
T- Someone says something about the election and a mod for a certain zombie game. I skimmed it. See what they were talking about.
T- Another Persona post.
T- A post about that Wii download service. They list off some older video games. Mario Excitebike? What is that?
P- Preview of one of those multiplayer role playing games.
P- I think this is a preview of some video game gear. I don't know exactly, I guess this stuff vibrates.
R- Mirrors Edge review.
?- This is a post about music someone wants in Rock Band. I don't know, but I guess this is video game related somehow. Question mark seemed apropriate.


A- Some artwork.
A- Member dressed up as Mario. Guessing that goes under art.
F- Guy mentions the Punisher movie. I enjoy Punisher stuff.
V- Some videos. Content warning.


?- A post about a few things. An update on this members situation as a newspaper employee and other stuff.
?- Deleted a friend from their xbox. Okay?
?- An album that is a nintendo cartridge. I don't know what else to say. This goes under other, right?


F- Ryu fails for having the Resident Evil 5 demo. Seriously, this is pure failure. Why must you have it and I don't? Furthermore, a demo for such a game seems silly.
F- Clearly getting a good deal and not being me is failure. Seriously, I want to play Parasite Eve and have yet to do so. You just walk into a thrift store and find it.
S- Something about flashlights. I don't know what to look for, seriously, too short. I don't know what is going on.

If anything is broken I'll have to fix it later.

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!
