Cblog Recaps of 3/3/09 + Pendeltonisms

Wow, what a bitchin’ night. Earlier tonight, I saw, for the first time, Night of The Living Dead. While I had always heard great things about this movie, and knew about it’s cultural influence (all you RE fans should kiss Romero’s feet), I never had the opporitunity to see it. And, thank God, because tonight’s experience was the best: I watched it in a ACTUAL theater, surrounded by movie nerds, who thought the movie was as ridiculously awesome as I did. If you’ve never seen it, I HIGHLY recommend you see it. And, if you ever get the change to see it in a theater, please do so. Also, since this morning, I've had the battle music from Lost Odyssey stuck in my head, and it's made everything I did today that much more epic.

And with that behind us, on to the recaps! Tonight, we’ve got a great addition to the Monthly Musings blogs, opera virtuoso Topher Cantler, and 2 visits from our wonderful robot overlord.

I recapped the cblogs and I Jizzed. In. My pants.



*-Ok, wow (and perfect after the film I saw this evening); How the economic down-turn and RE/RE2 are very similar. Great job!

*-Fantastic new art from GrumpyTurtle, with the most awesome triceratops EVAR.

*-Sharpless has a great new blog (The Gentleman Gamer), and shows us an editorial from that site talking about all the hate Dante’s Inferno is getting.

*-My vote for a front-page Monthly Musings: reminiscing about the greatest gaming-comic series ever, Sonic the Hedgehog (and all spin-offs of said comics and cartoon shows).

*-What a great piece: Jonathan Holmes and his Wii bias blogs about why THIS is the best time for gamers.

*-And my second vote: Expanded universes within video games.

*-A great little series I’d like to point out here: The Obscurer Tribune, home of all off-beat gaming news.

For all those that heard about this on Podtoid last week, Topher Cantler is a karaoke GOD:

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!
