Cblogs of 1/16/10 and 1/17/10 + SilverDragonisms


So I beat Darksiders this weekend, and I have to tell you all I seriously fell in love with this game. I'm not sure how it happened either. There's nothing about it that really blew me away, and it's in no way innovative, but it just completely captured and pulled me in. There were even times the game got on my last nerve, but that didn't stop me from absolutely adoring Darksiders. The very last scene of the game, I literally jumped out of my seat and cheered. Trust me when I say that NEVER HAPPENS! Oh how I can't wait for the sequel.

So my life has been really hectic lately, and hence I haven't had any time to dedicate to Destructoid. When's the last time anyone remembers me posting anything in the cblogs? Exactly, I don't anymore. Things at Gamer Limit have gotten so busy that I'm spending the majority of my free time writing for them. We are pushing really hard to roll out video content for the site in the new year, and I'm one of the people trying to spear head that effort. Suffice to say it's not going to be cheap, and it's not going to be easy, but it will be worth it. Check out the site if you get a chance guys. There are some big changes coming!

Well I hope everyone had a good weekend. Let's get to the weekend recaps shall we ...

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!
