Hello friends! How's everyone doing this week? My week has been pretty lame... haven't had much time for video games lately because I've been worrying about real life stuff, like working, looking for a new apartment, waiting to hear back about a possible new job, etc. Finding a new place to live is hard! And so is finding a new job! I just wish everything could be settled already so I could stop worrying about it. Luckily, I'm going on vacation in two weeks, so that will be nice. It's really hard to worry about things when you're relaxing on the beach!

Another reason I haven't been playing many games is because there haven't been very many exciting releases lately... I've been waiting for Spelunky to finally release on PSN, because then I'll always have something to play when I have nothing else to play. They announced a PC release date for next month, but no date for PS3/Vita. Oh well, I guess it's just been a slow summer. I'll just keep biding my time with Persona 4 Arena (I recently reached rank B in online matches! Woo!)

C - PopetheRev likes well-drawn nipples and hates Nintendo.





No fails today! Huzzah!

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!
