Three caps in a row, plus dealing with a sick family, plus yet another weekend of graveyard shifts?

Pure. Machine.

I recently posted a contest where you could draw some horrible looking food related abomination to win a copy of Shadowrun Returns. Just want to say thanks to everyone who entered; there were only, like, three of you, but it was fun all the same. Here is the winning picture, the lucky creator (Brutal2d) of which received his copy of the game yesterday, even in the face of the apparently game breaking patch that a lot of people have been struggling with. Hope it works out okay, pal, because it really is a fun game; I got my game working again this morning after deleting a particularly finicky piece of user generated content. I should also amend yesterdays caps by saying that it wasn't Life on a Limb I was playing and disliking before, it was A Lost Lamb. Life on a Limb, despite pushing the limitations of the software by having abnormally large maps with lots of things going on in them, is actually a lot of fun, and is quite difficult to boot.



Speaking of games no one else really cares about, I put ten hours into Time and Eternity before calling it quits. I have played a lot of shit RPG's in my time, with at least a handful of those being published by NiS, but this was by far the worst. I traded up for Ar Tonelico Qoga, which in comparison, is like Final Fantasy VI had a baby with Chrono Trigger, even though it too is just average on its own. Nevermind how embaressing it is to play a game in front of your wife where the main mechanic in battle is girls literally stripping to "get more power somehow" or whatever; but I have kind of come to accept that kind of dumb horseshit from the genre at this point, whether I like it or not.

Anyways, I'm feeling under the weather, so I wanna get these bad boys done. There aren't too many of them today, fortunately. Have a good week everyone!

* - Honathan Jolmes is a hard working man. Check out his audio review of Pikmin 3, and more importantly, enter to win a pair of Teenage Pokemon underwear featuring everyones favorite degenerate, Ditto! (I honestly typed his name wrong as a total mistake, leaving it the way it is for the ridiculousness of it.)

P - Episode 17 of the Scary Granules podcast. There are enough podcasts around these days that no one should have to be bored at their terrible night job in a warehouse where Christmas music occasional plays over the PA! At least, I know I'm not.

M - Gaming with SeymourDuncan17 is a complicated affair. Gaming with me is a lonely one where I make you sit in the bathtub while I play Sonic 1 and eat popcorn.

M - Duncan Mitchell talks about what it's like to game with him. Jeez, I didn't know that was a thing you could do with people? Well, aren't you just a bunch of social butterflies!

A - Wanna game with Tarvu? Here are some of the things you can expect.

E - It's not too late to enlist as a Weekend Warrior, chummers.

T - An interesting look at jiggly bits. Honestly, I think we are all just fascinated with big bubbly spheres bouncing around.

V - A review of the new Red vs. Blue. My cap just got super rhymey right here.

S - I guess this is a response to the new Bloggers Wanted? It will surely grace the front page in no 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!
