Hi all. Exam next week. European law. Bucket-loads of material. Difficult. No time. CAPS.

“Cassis de Dijon.”

Yes, brain, I know about the Cassis case.

Keck and Mithouard.”

Yes, I know about that one too.

“Commission v. Italy.”

Stop it.

“Groenveld.”

SHUT UP.

“Conegate.”

You’re hurting me!

“Alpine Investments.”

OH GOD THE VOICES ARE EVERYWHERE.

GET OUT OF MY HEAAAAA-



* - Do used game sales harm the industry, or is that more of a campfire story trying to scare is into buying new? DoTheTwist thinks the latter, and offers up some very interesting alternative money making schemes.

A - Right after DoTheTwist's blog, SirAlex highlights Total Biscuits video AGAINST used sales.

A - GoForRainbow loves being a pirate and tries to make piracy sound good. Will he succeed?

S - In what seems like it's going to be a massive series, TheKodu looks at Tropes vs. Women.









N - I had completely missed the announcement of this game, but TronKim tells us something about Panapticon: Freedom Wars. Sounds really cool!

A - Help me out here and convince Pope to tell us more about his Mega Man 25th Anniversary artbook. It looks like a great book and he sounds like a big fan, so there must be things to say! Also Roll upskirt.

F - Apparently Fast & Furious 6 doesn't make a lick of sense. Who'da thunk?

V - I like the idea of this Super Metroid video, but the delivery is kinda shit.

L - Goddammit Dixon, I told you to stay indoors while zombies are on the loose! Well, I guess we're leaderless now, we're fucked.

F - A game that was being made...is still kind of being made. How was this news again?

F - There is promoting your Kickstarter idea, and then there is begging for money. The former is fine, up to an extent. This is not.

F - Complaining about a forum we don't even know about people we don't know from someone we don't really know.

F - Okay, I gave the Super Metroid video the benefit of the doubt, but you really need to stop posting these.

F - He's not lying when he says "a quick word".

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!
