For those in the UK, it's now Election day. Polls open at 7am and remain open until 10pm. Get out the fucking house and vote. I'll be obessing over coverage all day, reinforcing my hand for millions of facepalms and laughing my ass off at the comedy that always arises (intentional or not) from various pundits, actual comedians (Channel 4's election coverage is hosted by Jimmy Carr, David Mitchell and The One True King Charlie Brooker) and Jeremy Vine. I am an election junkie though, so you'll probably be best served just watching the funnies on C4.

VIDEOGAMES this week, or rather videogame. Super Street Fighter 4. Juri's awesome, the online is awesome (not endless Ken's anymore) and the reworked Trial mode is awesome. This is a Game of the Year contender far more than the original SF4 was and if you have any interest in fighters and don't have it yet you need to find an excuse.

It's been mentioned before, this entire sentence is a link to the Humble Indie Bundle, I recommend you pay at least $10 for it if you like videogames.

Once again I have to mention, the European Wii store still hasn't got Cave Story. I WANT TO PAY MONEY FOR THIS GAME.

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!
