So I saw the Hobbit last night. More importantly, I saw it in IMAX 3D. The first film I'd ever seen in that format. 

IT BLEW MY FUCKING MIND



Unlike the last movie where it seems like the 3D was an afterthought tacked on at the end, this movie was clearly made for and shot in 3D. It was a feast for the eyes the entire time. The entire time being a long fucking time.



The movie has legroom with the text for better and for worse. Some scenes were entirely too long, while others has a length that was more than welcome. While people give the series so much flack for taking a small book and making it into three movies. I'm very interested in the idea. While so many films have the daunting task of taking a lengthy text and converting into a 2-3 hour movie, this one has so much time on its hands that its actually added things in. The fight between Gandalf and that one class of character from Diablo II isn't in the book and was a pretty cool bit.



Another cool thing that the movie does is that it makes Bilbo's motives unclear. You see him as both a jolly and as a menacing character the more he interacts with the ring. Speaking of: I just marathoned the Harry Potter films. Is the One Ring a horcrux?

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!
