[I know I posted this a few weeks ago on a different recap, but no one even guessed. Basically all you have to do is guess what community member is depicted in the picture above to win. It's also quite an appropriate picture for this week so ya.]

So I finally started Persona 3: FES. Got about an hour in before I started the recaps, and so far I'm really impressed. I really loved Persona 4, maybe I'll like 3 better, who knows.

Speaking of Persona, I ordered Alter's Yukiko Amagi 1/8 scale figure today. The only place it's available is in Atlus' Japanese store, so I had to get it trough a third party company. It was really expensive (came to about $115 Canadian), but I think it's worth it. Do any of you guys have this figure?

Today was a great day for Cblogs, Electro Lemon is back from his several month hiatus, unangbangkay wrote a great monthly musing, and Nick Chester makes a failblog, but it's okay because he is the editor in chief.

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!
