Custom artwork by Mikey, just another of the great benefits of being a member of Dtoid UK! Also yes I do actually own that hoodie. I post this partly because it's FREAKING AWESOME and also because the closest thing I've come to playing a game this last week has been dicking about (not literally, not yet anyway) in Second Life. I know, I'm kinda ashamed of it too. Turns out that....thing is a lot more bearable if you have something of a tour guide though. I'm not quite comfortable enough to go in there alone yet though. Last time I was left alone I nearly got raped by a rabbit.

Oh yeah, if you want to see the other Dtoid UK peeps Mikey's drawn (he's doing one everyday) then look at the gallery of them here. Currently featuring Halfleft, Darkandroid, Nikmunroe, n0brein, Gemsi, ThePhil, Anus McPhanus, Young Scot and myself. Until tomorrow when he adds another one. I think it's Malcor next.

Also if you like the idea of dungeon crawlers but hate their horrific learning curve then I recommend a little indie game that got an excellent update recently called Desktop Dungeons. It's basically a full roguelike where games can be completed within 5-10 minutes. Also try Spelunky if you haven't already, because it's fucking Spelunky.

I'm really freaking tired as well, so please bear that in mind reading these.

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!
