CBlogs o' 10/14/13 + MacMangasms Better Late Than Never Edition

I don't know what it is about the rare times I need to make the drive from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh on days when I should be recapping. 


I've suddenly found myself a whole lot less excited to be getting a PS4 at launch. It has nothing to do with the system itself, really, nor the Xbone. Its the fact that Watch Dogs was delayed.  I was really looking forward to the game.  Now I find myself only with Killzone as a game I want right at launch. Knack looks plenty charming but not something that appeals to me enough to shell out $60 for it.



So what's everyone else think about this? With only one game to get with the system I'm actually debating just waiting to get the console all together.







* - I'm not sure I've ever agreed with a blog more.





S - The plot thickens....

* - Thankyou for finally explaining cookie clicker to me!

* - Astarisy almost quit games. I've found myself in these shoes several times this generation. A fine read.

* - Shuudy's Top 5 emotional moments in games. I donno, I was kinda bummed when I had to wake Snorlax up.

* - PS4 or Xbone. Rimmy goes in depth with his dilemma.

* - Joey clues us into the ever-changing called Clock Tower. Is the plot really as versatile as he says? Might be worth checking out.

S - Part 2 of Volty's As Black as Lighting series. Spoilers for FFXIII and its sequels.



* - Updated rules and whatnot for the Drag-On Dragoon art contextoid.



I - Everyone say hi to Iany, feel free to read the comments.



* - Kingdom <3s 2.5 R3M1X announced, ya'll!

D - An update on how Sprout is coming along. Really digging the cloud effects.







C - What motivates gamers? Do you have to donate to find out? I can't say that I'm sure.

V - A rather unexpected find indeed.



* - The weekly blogless video post.

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!
