Cblog Recaps of 10/16/09 + TOMOPOPisms

   0


In our hustle and bustle of videogames previews, reviews, journalism as well as our own home brewed Friday Night Fights one could be forgiven for overlooking Destructoid's sister site Tomopop. I, Y0j1mb0, would like to show you not just the errors of your ways for not giving Tomo some love but why it's essential for you to do so. Considering that you pretty much know just about everybody that works there already like Topher, Nihon Tiger, Brad Rice and more, all guided with loving care by Colette Bennett, should pretty much tell you it's a quality affair over yonder.

And really where else are you going to find kick ass coverage of collectible toy culture? From anime figure reviews to wonderful pictorial spreads like the one I highlighted today in our Topsauce, go create an account and stay a bit to check out the hard work and passion they have for toys. You'll find it to be equal to Destructoid's own when it comes to games. Plus there be nekkid anime figures too. O.o Now back to your regularly scheduled Cblog recaps. Spoiler alert: There were great, funny, kooky and all around fun blogs. Let's have a closer look, shall we.


*-This is EPIC and just a taste of what Tomopop is all about.
*-Did anybody else draw these as a kid?
*-Homes blog about the pathology of fanboys is a good read.
*-Walkyourpath's latest in his ongoing series. Required reading.
*- The 16th issue of The Obscurer Tribune. What I wouldn't give for a periodical style printed version of these.
*-I don't care what anybody else thinks...Krow's video is ridiculously entertaining. Plus he needs to get a haircut, hippie.

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!
