Welp, it's Friday again! I feel like I've done nothing but work all week... hummmmm...

I beat Of Orcs and Men, and the game seemed to only get better and better as it went along. I'm really glad I decided to check that one out! But I already talked about that last week. 

Other than that, I played some Don't Starve on Steam, which annoyingly gives me an error message and shuts down rather too often. It always seems to happen when I'm resurrected after a death, or after I travel through a worm hole. It's a great game; lovely artwork, awesome survival gameplay. I just wish it would let me play it for more than 15 minutes at a time. 

I also found out that Fez, which I got as a gift from my boyfriend, will not run on my computer, so that bummed me out. I'm starting to think that maybe I should just avoid buying any more games on Steam until I can afford a better gaming computer. Buying games and not being able to play them is pretty much the worst. So far I've been shafted by Amnesia, Antichamber, The Baconing, Bit.Trip Beat, Fez, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, Snapshot, Spirits, and Zeno Clash. Granted, half of those were gifted to me, but I still feel bad not being able to play someone's gift. I'd really like to buy Monaco, La-Mulana and Mark of the Ninja, but I'm just not feeling very lucky. 

Of course, maybe I'm just an idiot because I don't always fully understand the system requirements information. It's just me being lazy and paying the price. Oh well.



Humph.

* - Andy does not want to see Shadow Warrior toned down, dammit! I'm not actually familiar with Shadow Warrior, but it does seem silly to take away something that made a game unique to begin with.

A - The Salty Hippo believes the Assassin's Creed series has lost some of its narrative charm.






E - djnealb is planning to host a NARP at his new house in Austin! Dtoiders in the area should certainly check it out!

F - Friday Night Fights on the 360 + Monk can't sleep...

F - Friday Night Fights on the PS3 + Burning griffins!

F - Friday Night Fights on Nintendo + No hosts... :(

R - A review of the original Sonic the Hedgehog? Hmmm... it's almost more of a nostalgic journey, which would have been more interesting. Why give it a review score?

R - A review of Four Swords Adventures? Ehhh...

P - Shuuda gives us an overview of Telepath Tactics.

D - It looks like POStudios is about to launch episode 3 of their new game.

$ - May 10th UK releases and bargains!





R - Mike Cosimano made some Jonathan Holmes-themed ringtones! Neat!

F - Copypasta woooo, yeahhhh!

F - I guess I don't know much about Doom. Is this cool? The post is kinda lame anyway.

F - Or we could just not make that game.

F - Just a video, no other information. Lame.

F - Forums, we have them.

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!
