I started playing Tokyo Jungle again. It's slowly becoming one of my favorite games ever. I finally finished the story mode, which took a particularly interesting turn at the end, and added a lot of depth and context to the world of the game. I've also gotten used to the arcade-style gameplay of survival mode, to the point where I find myself craving a survival session while I'm at work. I managed to survive 100 years for the first time the other night while playing as a zebra, and now I really want to get high scores with all of my other favorite animals.

I've managed to unlock a majority of the playable animals by now. I still need to earn enough points to unlock the polar bear, black panther and mammoth (also the robo-dogs, but that will take a while), and I still need to find the lion, tiger, deinonychus and dilophosaurus.

The ostrich is definitely my favorite animal to play as (followed by the giant moa, but they're very similar). They're quick, they're herbivores, and they can kick the shit out of almost anything that tries to eat them. I was able to take down several tigers, a crocodile, a pack of wolves and more before a lion finally managed to land a fatal blow. Also, I just think ostriches are pretty darn cool. I wanted to strive to become the top ostrich in the leaderboards, but somehow the leaderboards are topped by people who have lived 998 years... how is that even possible? I guess I'll just try to get as high a score as I can.

I feel like I have a blog post about Tokyo Jungle somewhere in my brain, waiting to come out, but I haven't quite figured it out yet. There's something about this game that's intrinsically special to me.

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!
