So this weekend is Gay Pride weekend for my city, and there's going to be a parade tomorrow morning right outside my apartment. I'm pretty excited about it, it should be a lot of fun. But because it's in the morning, I'd like to get some sleep while I can, so these -isms are gonna be a bit short. 



This week I played Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom (finally!) and it was a really cute game! I was initially a little put off by the Majin's voice, but I quickly fell in love with it as the game progressed. He's just way too adorable (although he tends to trip over himself entirely too often). I'm not sure I'd recommend the game for everyone, but I really enjoyed my time with it nonetheless. It was clear to me that a lot of heart was put into making the game, and I appreciated that.

I also finally subscribed to PS Plus (it's about time, right?). I played The Cave and Machinarium for free this week, two more really cute games. I like cute things, you see. I've also got access to XCOM: Enemy Unkown, Uncharted 3, Saints Row the Third, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution, among other games, all for FREE! I'm wondering which one I should play first. I'm thinking I might try out XCOM first, even though I'm not too big on strategy games. It just looks really cool.

Anyway, my bed is calling for me. Happy Gay Pride month, everyone! :)

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!
