It's snowing...

And I am cold and grumpy and I want the snow to go away. Winter always puts me in a foul mood. I don't really have anything for you today as far as these -isms go, but here are some pictures of kitties in the snow. They make me feel slightly less hateful towards snow.

* - Though I remain pretty optimistic about the current state of video gaming myself, I definitely agree with Char Aznable's complaints about the industry. But there are plenty of great games out there, you just have to know where to look!

M - Returner Mike's debut Cblog focuses on the monthly topic of sex in video games. He has a very reasonable viewpoint, and I'd say he handles the topic quite well.

M - ccesarano dreamed of creating a well-written hentai game, but the idea never came to fruition.

A - segastardust recently had a very bad experience at EB Games, a store he once loved.

A - CommanderCC offers up a cautionary tale of modding addiction and the problems that can arise from modding a game too heavily.

A - Pixielated makes some adjustments to her RPG quest, as she will now be focusing primarily on Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem.

A - Would it be beneficial to give developers a tighter budget to keep them from going under? Perhaps, but I don't think modern gamers would be too happy about it.

A - A brief history of Ketsui, a vertical shoot 'em up by Cave.





F - Friday Night Fights on the PC + Giraffes!

F - Friday Night Fights on the PS3 + MURDER SWORD.

F - Friday Night Fights on the Wii U + Yoshi is made of string!

T - Some thoughts on the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo by lokhe.

R - nilcam bought a very pricey set of component cables for his GameCube and gives them a review.

$ - January 25th UK releases and bargains!





V - Nick RP Green talks about video games while doing the dishes. He also mentions something about "hard on hot chocolate," so it sounds like a sexy video!

V - Video review of 10,000,000 by DanielCampbell.

R - Ronin4life seems to think the snow is affecting Disqus... goddamn snow!

C - Like and sub if you enjoy!!!!!!!111!!1! (I'm not really a fan of blogs like this...)

C - I guess he wins the sexual innuendo contest?

C - I don't understand why you would complain about an HD remake existing. Just don't buy it?

F - Beijing spams the shit out of the Dtoid Cblogs. Fuckin' Beijing.

F - Welcome back! Write a real blog next time.

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!
