Cblogs of 1/23/10 and 1/24/10 + SilverDragonisms

So I spent the last week playing Dark Void, because I'm reviewing it for Gamer Limit, and let me just warn you all NOT to play it. It would truly be a complete waste of your money. It's got some really interesting ideas, but has extremely poor execution, disgusting graphics, major sound issues, and a story that was written my a 5th grader. If you need a more in-depth explanation for why I disliked the game so much, you can read my review which should be posted in 24 to 48 hours. Trust me though, it sucks!

Now that I'm done with Dark Void, I can dedicate the next couple weeks to playing my most anticipated game of 2010, MASS EFFECT 2. You know it's kind of sad that the game I'm most looking forward to this year comes out only 3 weeks into it. That kind of makes the rest of the year seem like a huge let down now that I think of it. Oh well, it won't matter. If all the reviews I've read are correct, I'll probably end up replaying this game 2 or 3 times over the course of the year. I can't wait.

So I need to know if anyone else is as excited about Mass Effect 2 as I am. Anyone at all? I'm actually thinking about going to GameStop at midnight to pick it up and just staying up all night until I fall asleep with my controller in my hand. Sucks that I have to be at work the next day at 8AM, but it would be worth it.

Well enough about me going ga ga over Mass Effect 2. GO BUY IT! Time for your regularly scheduled weekend cblog recaps.

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!
