First order of business. Everyone please join me in wishing a very happy 29th birthday to the invisible captain of Team Recap, Conrad Zimmerman. Conrad does such stuff as keeping the team in check and taking on new regulars and reservists just like we've done this week. Not to mention it was him who got us all together to reform Team Recap last year.

Now, all of you people out there with all 3 of this generation's consoles (that's Wii, PS3 and 360) I want you to think of this. When was the last time you bought a game for each console in the same week? I just realised after buying 'Splosion Man earlier (which you should all do by the way) that I've done that this week. 'Splosion Man for the 360, Wipeout HD Fury for the PS3 tomorrow and then Wii Sports Resort (yes I'm buying it) for the Wii on Friday. Can't freaking wait for Fury though.

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!
