LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 04-20-09 and ScottyGasms

Another Monday, another week I start off poorly by staying up way too late on a Monday. Huzzah!

Not a lot of blogs to recap this week, bu for the most partt a good selection. Quite a few monthly musings that are almost always a joy to read. Much love to all of you. :)

So... does anybody actually think the L4D DLC is coming out tomorrow? This is Valve we're talking about here. Even if it does I doubt I'll be playing it tomorrow though. Life stuff aside the oddity known as Zeno Clash is supposed to be coming out tomorrow, which is likely what I'll be playing if I'm playing anything.

Been going though another one of those phases where I'm trying to get rid of lots of old junk. Thought some of it might have been worth something on eBay, but alas none of it is. So I have some really old stuff, some of which may be video game related, that I am looking to get rid of. Any ideas for a community contest? ^_^

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!
