LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 1/20/09 + Pendeltonisms

   0


I think that this might be one of the greatest weeks I've seen in a long time, and it's only Tuesday! First, yesterday, having MLK Day off, I did what anyone would do to celebrate the great Civil Rights leader: stay in the house and watch a Powerpuff Girls marathon while finishing Symphony of The Night. As if that wasn't enough, today's historic inauguration was a beautiful thing to behold. But, it's not nearly as cool as what I picked up today: LEFT 4 DEAD!!! I'm finally one of the many to become a Survivor, and I've loved every minute of it. As the rest of the week goes on, tomorrow promises my first glass blowing class and the season premier of Lost. Thursday is free dinner with my folks, and Friday, I'll hopefully participate in my first FNF with the Dtoid gang!

Awesome.

Anyway, in today's recaps, we've got tits galore, a Xenu-hating Shamwow spokesman, and, for some ungodly reason, Alf.

I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Recaps, and will, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Cblogs of Destructoid.



*-Because, honestly, who’s not a fan of tits…the best jubblies in video games.

*-Will Barack Obama, like so many video games, become a victim of the hype train?

*-Holy shit, the dad from Alf is a gay crack addict.

*-One of my favorite blog series, Sound Test, looking at some great Castlevania music.

*-A great piece about the simplicity of design in games.

E-Team Fortress Tuesday, with Obama watching you masturbate.

I-Everyone welcome the new cblogger with a difficult name to say with a mouth full of peanut butter, Roth Sothy.

V-That Killzone 2 intro video.

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!
