Not much to say. Yesterday I spent about 10 hours trying to get schoolwork in order. After I got home I crashed... I woke up in a panic at 2AM and realized I hadn't even started tonight's recaps. Have you ever sat bolt upright in bed from a sound sleep? It's not as easy as it looks on T.V. and in movies.


*- Mr Destructoid is SO CASH.
*-JT706 posted a list of some of some arbitrary game commercials. I remember seeing all of these and scooting up closer to the TV to make sure I didn't miss a thing.
*-Tremulant wrote about his first experience being raped by George Lucas. Surprised no one posted a pic from that South Park episode.
*-BulletMagnet wrote a nice impressions piece on Ar Tonelico 2.


A-Apparently F.E.A.R. 2 and hangovers don't mix.
S-Tactix posted this week's Destructoid Community Discusses. This week: What will the 8th generation of consoles look like?
S-As always, NihonTiger90 wants to know, What'd You Get?"
M-BradEatsPeeps wrote about how random games on XBL kinda suck in his Monthly Musing.
P-GECKO had Niero and Colette as guests for BBQ and a podcast. A good time was had by all, it seems.
A-CelicaCrazed defiles the corpse of the L4D PS3 rumor while sprinkling salt everywhere.
S-Jackal27's Sound Test returns. This week he spotlights Lonely Rolling Star from Katamari Damacy. That whole game's soundtrack is amazing.



No contests today. Please enjoy this video of the orchestra who performed the music for Super Mario Galaxy.




E-Crainium's pipe is getting slammed. Help him out, won't you?
E-There will be a couple of NARPs coming up in Texas. Sounds like fun!
I-Lots of introductions today. Greetings to Cyanic.
I-CWal37 makes an indroductory post many months after the fact. That's O.K. though. Welcome to Destructoid.
I-Welcome also to Mau GX3, a native of Brazil.
I-And this guy's from the same country. There's like a brazillion introductions today! Welcome, Mirax.
I-Yet another introduction! Say hello to Doomsday Forte.

N-Rifter01 found the achievements for Outrun Online.
N-StevePhoenix says THQ is struggling. So are we all, brother.
R-Ocified Xboxer didn't care for the RE5 demo. The flamestorm that followed is actually fairly measured and reasoned. It's unsettling.
R-Another review of RE5's demo from CupOfCocoa. In all fairness, I don't think I could curbstomp a kitten either. That's very distasteful.
R-After those two, this may have been inevitable.
R-And we may be seeing the birth of a new meme here.
R-Ok, yeah. No.
R-Several RE5 demo reviews today. This one's more positive than the others from above.
R-Braunof theDead also had some nicer things to say about it. With a name like that though, he might be workin' for the zombies.
R-Cyanic reviewed the F.E.A.R. 2 demo.
V- Half Left shows off all the fun stuff in Sonic Unleashed. Unfortunately, this takes less than half an hour.

T-LastSkySamurai wrote down 150 (One hundred and Fifty!) gaming annoyances in celebration of Australia day.
T-Unangbangkay has about three-quarters of a boner for Yakuza 3.


M-Mushman temporarily takes over for RonBurgandy in this very special episode of dTunes.
F-DJDuffy got to meet Dennis Muren and got a neat lightshaver.
S-l0cke doesn't really want this Jak 3 swag. Would you?


L-I could see AIM being used as some sort of retarded text-based MMO. I just involuntarily shuddered.
L-Dale North found some drama on the internet. Scandalous!

?-....Huh?



For the second day in a row, no one failed so badly as to end up here. Are the planets aligning or something?


OH YEAH!

By the way, Universal Music... you suck for not allowing the official video of Kool and the Gang performing this song to be embedded.

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!
