Hello everyone!

I just beat Little Inferno a few minutes ago, which I bought yesterday after it went on sale on Steam. What an intriguing little game. You basically just burn stuff, and then buy more stuff, and then burn that stuff, and it's surprisingly addicting! Not to mention the story is very bizarre, and somehow charming and creepy at the same time. I'm also really digging this song right now. I'm not sure that I'd recommend it for everyone, but if you enjoyed the type of humor from World of Goo or you've got some money to spare (it's $4 right now, which I'd say is perfect for this game), then you should consider checking it out. At the very least, it's a game that's unlike anything you've played before.



Meanwhile, I bought Bit.Trip Runner 2 last week, I'm still making my way through Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, and a co-worker of mine let me borrow his copy of Tomb Raider. So it looks like I'll be juggling my time between those three games for awhile! I'd like to finish Nocturne before moving on to the other two, but it's a looong game. I should be nearing the end though, I think... but who knows. Gotta catch all those demons!

A - Azudarko has noticed that a lot of the arguments leveled at Anita Sarkeesian's first Tropes vs. Women video are very similar, and doesn't think they're even very good arguments at all.

A - TheKodu tackles the God of War 'Bros before Hos' controversy.

A - Liquidjudo wants to hear about your favorite underrated games; his favorite is Star Ocean: The Second Story.

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!
