Wow! This half-assed, ten-words-or-less idea of mine is really something! I hammered out today's recaps about an hour after I finished the last one! I should remember this the next time I'm in a pinch! Hopefully, I won't be pressed for time next week and will be able to fluff up the recaps with my usual nonsense.

Never mind that shit, do you kids know what time it is? That's right! It's time for:

MICHI WATCH '09!

We are currently on Day 9 of our ongoing vigil. Let's take a look around, shall we? Hmm... nope! He's still not back! All is right in the world! Tune in next week as we find out if michi returns bearing ominous news, if Alejandra will get back with Octavio, and if Don Juan will ever get his memory back.

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!
