Hello friends, I hope you all had a nice Friday!



So who all has watched the much anticipated 4th season of Arrested Development? I still have 3 episodes to go before finishing it, but I like what I've seen so far. I think Maeby's episode was my favorite one so far. I loved her acceptance speech at the Opie's awards show, and I thought she was generally a funnier character than she's been previously. Lucille's episode was also fantastic, of course. She's still my favorite character, and anything she says or does never fails to crack me up! And Gob's episodes were great as well! 

I think the only character I'm kind of disappointed in this season is Tobias. The Fantastic 4 storyline and his new love interest just aren't really doing it for me. He does have his moments, though, so it's not all bad. I still haven't seen Buster's or George Michael's episodes, and I have high hopes for both of them!

And I think it goes without saying that my favorite thing about the new season of Arrested Development is a certain long-necked, feathery individual.


Cindy the Ostrich! Side-note: the ostrich-like sound Lucille 2 makes at one point was possibly my favorite moment of season 4.

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!
