Cblog recaps 12/14/08 +Randombullisms

   0

Hello there! Today was spent playing video games. Also spent some time today working on my very own video game. Perhaps you've heard the legend of Bonerquest? I can't seriously believe that I've nearly finished it. That I'm so close, that I've actually ahd people try it out and givem e feedback on it. Oh what I wouldn't do to hear from everyone who ever was to try it out. But enough Narcisism, lets have some RECAPS. Hooray for recaps. Everyone loves a good weekend recap and this saturday, we even had a contest post. I can't believe it.


I pick Chad on that GameTV show. Even though I've yet ot watch it, Chad Concelmo is amazing.



A- Something about World of Warcraft fetish.M- A monthly musing with the word Genocide in the title.
M- Monthly Musing about controllers.


C- Street Fighter Contest continues.

?- This also goes into Community. The November completed games list for Destructoid.
I- New member introduction.
?- Not quite sure where to put this, but a community member is selling some video game stuff. Also other things.
R- R for Retroforce. Tubatic got some stuff from Retroforce GO. You know, Destructoids #1 retro gaming podcast?[/b]


N- Win an Indie game from the VGA awards.
R- A review of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
R- R for arslo having some things. This member recieved some items from another member. Member member member, why can't I call us toiders? Or retoids?
V- A video of Madworld. It's a game for the Wii.

F- Movie night, with Genki Jam.
M- Something about Daft Punk. I think they made a movie and this post links to that video. Good for them. Not to say I don't like Daft Punk, its just, I don't know. Harder, faster, make it better. You know?
M- This post has a title about listening to music.



V- A video that combines Mario brothers with Metal Gear. What else can I say?
V- Chad Concelmo appears on gamehead. Well they don't call it gamehead anymore, but its the same show basicly. Friday nights on the "guys channel" they have a video game show based off this website. Anyway, Chad appeared and he's awesome. Memory card: That time Chad appeared on that TV show.


S- Metal gear? And a short blog about it?
S- Something about wanting gamers to go into politics, I think. Comparisons to the Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic were mentioned.

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!
