LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 10/21/08 + Pendeltonisms

   0

Alright, folks, before we get started today, I’d like to draw attention to one of the blogs not in the Top Blog area.. galabug wrote today about a DLC system the Super Famicom hadcalled Satellaview. Read more about it on his blog. Anyway, as I was looking up information about it, I found out that, in Japan, there was a SNES remake of the NES Zelda game called BS Zelda no Densetsu. I was able to not emulate it this evening, and, I have to say, it’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Aside from the Link to the Past graphics, the game has a real-time clock that relates to events that happen at certain times on the map, AND the choice to play as a girl (there’s no Link or Zelda in the game, just Satellaview’s mascots) from the beginning, AND an even more different dungeon placement than either quest on the NES. If you’re a fan of the original NES game AT ALL, you deserve to not play this game in any way possible.

With that behind us, on to the blogs! Tonight, we’ve got massive amounts of fail, a bunch of rat bastards getting LittleBigPlanet, and a survey about wiping your ass. AND HERE WE GOOOOOOOOO!



*-unangbankay reveals that Sony owns all LittleBigPlanet creations. Yep, even the penises.
*-Altered Beets writes about fears that gamers need to face. *-Ravec999 defends the honor of Silent Hill: Homecoming. SPOILERS!
*-This made me chuckle: how do you wipe your ass, and who’s the best Dtoid editor?

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!
