Cblog Recaps of 04/16/14 and Stryderisms!

   0



So I got Titanfall for 360.

It was probably the first game I ever realized a notable difference in FPS on. I still vividly remember the first time I played on an HDTV in my house. It was Modern Warfare 2 and I just loaded into a map with the P90. Skip to now with Titanfall on 360 and the 30 FPS can kind of murder it for me. I still enjoy the stompy robots and parkour though but its amazing the difference in FPS can do for you.

Of course, I'm having loads of fun using the Stryder and dashing around with whatever appropriate weapon I can for the strategy. Maybe it's the 40mm, maybe its the Arc Cannon. But regardless the fun of running around walls, double jumping, and knowing I'm guaranteed stompy robot fun is a pleasure on this game. There's nothing quite like turning on my dash core, and suddenly coming from behind an enemy titan to reach in and grab the squishy pilot innards quietly existing inside.

Speaking of game, I just introduced my girlfriend to Prison Architect, that expensive early access game that's pretty much Prison Tycoon. Now that is a game that is keeping my attention. Suppressing riots, rolling out armed guards, building massive expansions, obtaining grants, and more for the sake of keeping society's grumbling class within my walls. Her prisons tend to be relatively calm. Something I struggle with. But my prison's do bounce back rather well if I do say so myself.

Well, I don't have such big Striderisms today. I've been taking a beating from my schedule and even today I called out because in my struggle to keep up between school and Spring Break work at the D, I forgot I had work at 11:15am as I became conscious of it at 11am. And that was after coming home from work at 11pm last night and waking up at 10am from a long day that had class at 8am.

So basically, I've been all sorts of messed up. I feel like I'm constantly a day behind. After having the weekend before off, I've been struggling to keep up with work everyday straight with no end until next week.

Here you go and have fun with robots?

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!
