So I spent most of this week playing and beating Dead Space: Extraction for the Wii. If you are a Dead Space fan, or if you are the type of person who likes to complain that there are no mature games on the system, you should really try this out. Please don't get put off by the fact it's an on-rails shooter, because if so you'll be missing a pretty great game. You can read my complete thoughts in my official review I wrote for Gamer Limit.

I've also been playing God of War: Chains of Olympus this week on my PSPgo. That game is pretty freaking awesome, though I wish my left thumb didn't hurt so much after using the damn analog nub on the system. I don't think Sony had comfort in mind when they designed the PSPgo. The controls just straight up feel awkward to be honest with you.

This is a HUGE week in games and I personally have my heart set on Uncharted 2 and Brutal Legend. After have a huge exam to take on Tuesday for my graduate class, but after that I'm going home to play Uncharted 2 all night. Actually, I'm pretty much dedicating my entire week to Drake's new adventure. Anyone want to play through the co-op campaign with me. If you are interested let me know.

That's enough form me for now. Let's get to the 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!
