Cblog Recaps of 11/17/09 + Pendeltonisms

   0


Late recaps are late, due mainly to the fact that I had...a sleepover last night. Yeah, a bunch of my pals came over, and we all got into our footie pj's and watched The Last Dragon and Hard Candy. There is no real situation where those movies should be shown together, but then again, I have some really fucking weird friends. If you've never seen The Last Dragon, then you don't know about the glory that is Sho Nuff. Google that shit and enjoy. It's blaxploitation at it's finest. As for Hard Candy, well...it'll make you think twice about talking to young girls online. As if Chris Hanson hadn't ruined that for you as is.

Enough about films, let's get into games. In today's recap, we've got a bevy of incredible Monthly Musings, the passing of The Age of Mascots, and blatant racism, of course.



*-Umm...wow. Who knew that Pong and Tetris were so fucking evil?

*-In this interesting Monthly Musing, nekobun finally blows the lid off this whole Pokemon thing.

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!
