Cblog Recaps of 12/22/08 + Pendeltonisms

Holy Crap!!! What the hell am I doing here? I gotta lay off the booze...
Oh, wait, no...I'm not gonna be around tomorrow, so I'm taking over tonight's recaps, and Dragon will, once again, grace us with his presence tomorrow.

So, every year, around this time, me and my friends have a shitty horror movie night. Tonight, we enjoyed the pleasures of "Fear of Clowns" and "Trailer Park of Terror". Now, the first one is porn-script-worthy, with the worse acting I've ever seen, and even worse props. Unfortunately, there's only a short boob shot, so not much TNA to be had. "Trailer park of Terror," though, was fucking amazing. If you wanna see someone die by Chinese massage, deep-fried alive, and participate in a ZOMBIE DEMOLITION DERBY, this is the movie for you.

ONTO THE RECAPS! Tonight, we've got a few reviews for that odd Doritos game, 2 jackasses making GOTY lists, and another entry into the amazing Cblog that is Tehmntlion's blog.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD RECAP!

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!
