One of the things that hurts me is how little time I have to play Atlantica Online, that turn based MMORPG that its makers are very proud of. I love the game and I really enjoy my time spent playing it but whenever I'm on the computer in this house that has Atlantica on it I either a) start up a torrent, b) fap or c) end up playing Guild Wars or Perfect World. Why can't I fire up a genuinely fun and enjoyable MMO instead of my old habit (GW) or the inexplicably hooking Perfect World?

While on the subject of free MMOs, I got into the beta for the Football MMO Football Superstars recently and I plan on getting some game time in on that tomorrow. I reckon it'll be interesting to see how something as active as a sport can translate to MMOs.

Space Giraffe is coming out on PC next week. GIVE JEFF MINTER YOUR MONEY!

Also to finish on, a gentleman I know has been banned from the audience of Deal or No Deal because of his hobby tracking game stats. Its not really videogame related, but I think its very interesting that someone who gets a kick out of statistics could be banned from a TV show rich with stats because of it.

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!
