So demos, today I played the Modnation Racers PSP one and you know what, I think provided they put all the creative stuff for Karts and Mods in this version of the game this could actually outclass its PS3 big brother. I'm certainly more entertained by the AI here than I was by the beta AI. Sure online play takes a hit but provided I can still use downloaded tracks I'm fine with that. Only problem is removing the option to auto-decorate a track makes the track creator a bit unnecessarily fiddly if you're going for something awesome. I can't see myself tweaking a track for hours on the PSP like I can for the PS3 version. Weirdly I reckon I'll end up getting both, a grand testiment to Sony's dedication to putting their major franchises on both their formats. Hopefully this is how things'll work for the PSP now, since Modnation PS3 and PSP are both out at the same time. I'm looking forward to them certainly.

Things I've found porn of today, the 5th gen starter Pokemon (all 3 of them) and the MALE 5th gen Pokemon trainer. Also Nick Clegg/David Cameron slash. Internet, you never fail me.

Oh yeah, and Portal's free now. GO DOWNLOAD IT.

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!
