Oh, sweet merciful Lord, Darksiders. Darksiders, Darksiders, Darksiders. I never thought I could have such a boner for a game. It’s just…a game made for gamers. Everything good about gameplay from fucking EVERYTHING is in here. Christ, they put a Star Fox/ Panzer Dragoon level in it, for absolutely no reason. This has been my curse, my obsession for the past few days. I'm sorry if you're not into the game, because you are seriously missing out on just pure unadulterated fun. Yes, it is buggy, and the story blows, and blah blah blah. Forget all of that; this game is just SO. FUCKING. FUN. that none of it really matters. Again, sorry to gush on about this, but…AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHRUINVOIDWALKERSAMAELKILLINGBATSAAAAAHHHHHHHHH.

While I not-so-quietly lose my sanity, let’s get to the recaps. Today, we have two Dtoid regulars hate-fucking each other over various blogs, mass killings made fun, and, of course, waffles.



*- A re-introduction to the great DtoidEurope group!

*- A blog that will make you actually think a game about the Spanish Civil War would be pretty cool.

*- This blog is about nothing but waffles.

*- A refreshing blog about spending the night with Crash Bandicoot, with no rape involved at all.

*- Let’s go look at the past of gaming with some old bastard!

*- Here’s an interesting and somewhat sad blog about the passing of DarwinMayflowers internet friend.

*- Holy shit; if you ever need a super-comprehensive look at the best Starcraft players from around the world, look here.



A- Crystalkm lists all of the people she’s killed since she plays violent video games and is, thus, a murderer.

S- In which The Blur talks about his life.

M- The Future: Simplify, man!



E- A supplement to the recap of last weekend’s NARP.

S-Bigby’s 5th day with STO, where we get some info on things you can fly.

S- darthix continues his 52-Game Challenge with this week’s selection Half-Life 2.



N- There’s news about Bioshock 2, AVP, and Steam in here, but really you should come for the random flamewar.

R- In which a review is written, by one Jechxior.

T- VGFreak1225 wonders if games could garner more replayability through their difficulty levels.

T- In which Son of Bacon Sandwhich speaks of Sands of Destruction.

T- In which mattmagoo talks about his experience on a train with his PSP.

T- In which Mark Griffiths gives us some bite-sized reviews.

L- I GOT RIPPED IN 4 WEEKS LET ME SHOW YOU HOW

V- Something weird is going on with these videos…

S- Whine about this somewhere else. Like the past. When it was relevant.

F- Fascinating.

F- Don’t stare at this blog too long or your brain will melt out of your anus.

F- Oh god dammit…

F- You got the first part right…

F- In which The RPGist and ChronosWing totally make out.

F- wat

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!
