LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 04/11/14-04/13/14 and bbainisms

Hello everyone! I'll be covering three days this week: Friday, Saturday AND Sunday! MacManus has some important business to attend to for the time being, so I'll be taking over Saturdays indefinitely, and Crackity Jones was busy having a grand time at PAX East, so Sunday fell into my lap this week as well. Somehow, there were still less blogs to read than a normal Friday, which was odd... PAX weekends always tend to be super slow for some reason. 

And speaking of PAX, there were a ton of cool indie games that were shown which I'm really excited about. Hyper Light Drifter, Below, Child of Light and Gods Will be Watching all look like games I need to play! The Indie Megabooth always seems to be the coolest part of PAX to me, and I'm glad to see it still didn't fail to deliver this year!


This just looks all kinds of AMAZING!

Unfortunately, I'll have to keep these -isms short. I wanted to post this up before work, and I'm quickly running out of time! Anyway, I'll see you all next weekend!



* - Marche100 is working on a Destructoid-themed visual novel, which should be finished in a few weeks! Awesome!

* - StriderHoang offers some useful advice for navigating the harsh, unforgiving space of FTL with the new weapons from the Advanced Edition.



A - RedHeadPeak wonders if Link has what it takes to rule the world.

A - pk fire played a lot of indie games at PAX and highlights the best of the bunch!

A - SpielerDad has to be careful with who he talks about video games with at work... judgemental ears could be listening.







F - Friday Night Fights on Playstation + Sony love!

F - Friday Night Fights on Xbox + PAX jealousy!

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!
