Cblogs of 07/31/14 + Dawn of the Final Week

Yep, one week from now I'll leave good ol' Europe behind to find out what life is like across the pond. Everything is ready to go; I've got my passport, visa, plane ticket, hotel reservation for the first few days, a bunch of cash dollars (I've actually never held a dollar before) and everything else you could think of.

I can't actually bring my WiiU with me, so during my 5-month stay in your glorious capital I'll be missing out on Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2 and Smash Bros. WiiU, at least until I come home in January. That's obviously quite a blow, but at least I'm bringing my 3DS along so I can still get some sweet gaming done. I just bought Bravely Default to keep myself occupied on the plane, and since I'm pretty sure the 3DS eShop will still be accessible as long as I can get wifi there's lots of games to choose from should I ever run out of things to do. Although to be honest I don't think that'll happen even in 5 months.  

Are you ready?
Because I'm ready.

* - While nobody actually hates Catherine, naveenwf was looking for an excuse to write about his favorite game of all time. Any excuse is a good excuse to talk about Catherine!

* - RedHeadPeak wishes he could take his class on a school trip to Neo-Paris, the city from that oft-forgotten game Remember Me.

* - Sounds like Hamza has plans for Dtoid going forward. If that open call goes out I might give it a shot...after I've plugged LOADS of other 'toiders first.

A - I have no better caption for this blog than a quote from the blog itself: "For all my weird behaviour, obscure quotes, library of games, numerous gaming consoles, excessively big computers and meaningless information, she still loves me."

A - I DO like top 10s, and I like chiptunes. Thanks for this blog, I got some great listening material.  

P - DustinThomas is jumping back into his Podcast, which features Mario, Battleblocks, Batman and more!

S - Nintendette shares a weird little easter egg in the Sims series.

A - Oscarno continues his journey of making me want to play games based on their music alone. Like Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance!





F - Xbox FNF + It's getting hot in here! (so take off all your clothes)









L - Jesse Baule describes his experience of going to the loo only to find out you can't actually read Game Manuals anymore.

F - I don't know what's going on with Deus Ex, why don't you actually tell us?






- ShadeOfLight
May you always find water and shade

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!
