Ever since Bit.Trip Core was released this week, it's been pretty much all I've been playing. Even though Core shares a similar look with Beat, the gameplay is completely different. The developers really weren't lying when they said it's a more traditional rhythm game, as it takes a lot more practice to be good at. In Beat, you could get by with just sort of winging it, and going by reflexes, but not the case in Core.

I almost finished the game today. I can get to the last boss on the third stage, but everything just seems really random, with notes coming out from every which direction at once, and there is no videos of the boss on YouTube yet, so I can't get help there. But seriously, the game is freaking amazing, Gaijin really has a winner on their hands when it comes to their Bit.Trip series.

Also, check out my review of the Yukiko Amagi figure from Persona 4 over on the Tomopop Cblogs. I was contemplating reposting it on the Cblogs today, but just decided to put it in the recap instead.

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!
