Cblog Recaps of 10/09/09 + Y0j1mb0isms

Ever since I got Demon's Souls I haven't been able to put it down. My impression blog of this game is coming soon but in the meantime that picture above is the only game that can pry me away from hunting demons. Funny that a cheap charming downloadable puzzle game is as addicting as a full priced one. Go check out Destructoid's review of Critter Crunch and then promptly buy it. This game kicks major ass and you need to own it. Its that awesome. Here's another look at it right after the next paragraph for those not in the know.

Also on a Cblog related topic, I don't think I've ever topsauced as much stuff as I have today. I make it a point to literally put the cream of the crop here by my standards which usually results in less than other recappers. That and I'm old. It warms my cold heart to see the size of topsauce grow. As a matter of fact all across the board everybody is getting better. A special shout out to mkshiranui who's writing is improving. You're getting close to topsauce.

*-Wry Guy's latest in his KoF love letters. Read it. Even if you're not a fan of fighting games it's kickass.
*- Tubatic's masturbatory compendium of his Way of the Samurai 3 blogs is what being passionate for a game is all about.
*-John Johnson's Monthly Musing is a good read indeed.
*-Kauza's humor is infectious.
*-I actually don't agree with megaStryke's assertion that immersion is a nonsense buzzword word...but I can't deny it was a worthwhile read.
*-The Obscurer Tribune + Topsauce always go hand in hand.
*-A Fan-Fic Dare. Quirky and very cool.
*-THIS IS AMAZING.
*- Another monthly musing in topsauce? Yup. This time its Wry Guy's.

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!
