Cblog Recaps of 3/31/09 + Pendeltonisms

   0


Today, I took some time to really think about the impact this site has had on me. Aside from being your most humble/greatest Cblog recapper ever, I’m now officially a part of roughly 3 organizations through this site. First is the Destructoid Artisans, which you can read about on the front page. Second is Backwards Compatible, a gaming features-oriented blog and podcast that I am a part of, along with some of the goofiest gamers I’ve ever met. And, finally, I’m now a part of a super-secret, double-probation blog began by another Dtoider (though, info about that will be given on a need-to-know basis for now). I just want to take this time to thank not only Niero for such a great website, but also the fine folks who I talk to daily, all because I met them through this site.

Alright, enough about my hard-on for green robots, let’s get to the recaps! In today’s review, we look at a Nintendo kid falling for SEGA, Dtoid karaoke, and more Robbert Summa than you can shake an underage stick at.

By the power of Grayskull, these are…THE CBLOG RECAPS!!!

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!
