Today, Destructoid asked what my most anticipated game of 2013 was, and I could only pick one? Looking at the list, I started to get really excited about the coming year, and also really sad for my bank account (it'll be OK, buddy)! We've got Ni no Kuni (!), The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (!!), Dark Souls II (!!!), Guacamelee, Monaco, SpyParty, Super TIME Force, Tomb Raider, The Last Guardian (???), Rayman Legends (too bad I'm not getting a Wii U), and more... and there are no doubt even more that aren't even on the list (Mew-Genics?). I mean, damn. The games haven't even been released yet and I'm already overwhelmed!

Bring it on, 2013!


(PS: I voted for Dark Souls II... :D)

Oh, and before I forget, I wrote a blog for my Top 10 games of 2012 earlier today. Check it out if you want!

* - Isshak Ferdjani interviewed the cast and director of Us and the Game Industry, a documentary about indie developers. It's a very interesting interview with some surprising responses!

* - Strong female leads in video games... the conversation rages on! If we don't see some more female leads anytime soon, I will be very surprised and disappointed.

* - The video games of 2012 gave Cutie Honey so many feels (eight of them, to be exact)! Also, he's giving away some Steam games!

A - TheKodu thinks Sony is destined to fail if they implement the patent they filed regarding pre-owned games.

A - ccesarano makes some hefty predictions about Valve and Sony for 2013.

A - Everyday Legend has a crazy idea for rebooting the Mega Man franchise which just might work!

A - SuperCrow's Top 5 games of 2012. Some fine choices here!





E - It looks like the DtoidUK DecNARP was a big ol' happy sausage fest!

S - Nathsies hasn't been around Dtoid in awhile because he's been focusing on his studies, and recently received some wonderful news!

F - Friday Night Fights on the 360 + Jon Tron at MAGFest!

F - Friday Night Fights on the PS3 + Dear god... nightmare fuel!

T - Megakrang spent his holidays on a lush tropical island, relaxing by the bonfire and whacking people upside the head with a giant dildo bat.

P - Hmm... I wonder why games like ZHP: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman or The God and Fate Revolution Paradox don't get much attention? Maybe their god-awful names have something to do with it...

T - What if Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII turns out to be a good game? What will we do then?!

D - These guys are introducing Destructoid to a new game they're working on called Edge of Space.

$ - January 4th UK releases and bargains!





C - Copypasta of a necro-review for a Sega Genesis game... also no pics. At least he has an adorable blog header!

C - levelseeker is lost in Final Fantasy XIII-2 and apparently GameFAQs can't help... also, goddamn, that game's plot sounds awful.

C - A very short thought about violence and video games.

F - I guess this is spam? Either that or someone is very lost.

F - Who let this crazy person in? We don't need any paranoid conspiracy theorists here, thanks.

F - In case you didn't notice, the site you are posting on is Destructoid... not 3DS Buzz.

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!
