There are blogs from yesterday in this recap because the Dtoid c-blog page failed while I was recapping and it took me a while until I noticed it had loaded the same page I'd just been looking at.

Also this is the first recap I've written where I haven't had to go back and correct some formatting. I think I'm starting to get it.

I've literally gotten about 2 hours of sleep and have to go to work in about 5 minutes so I'll make this as coherent as possible.

Tiger Woods 09 has done something very few games are able to do, make me feel like I suck but still be fun to play, even when my beloved golf avatar (actually not modelled on me, so as to not remind me that I suck at golf in real life) is taking about 5 putts to drop the ball. Yeah I'm a big golf nerd, even though I haven't actually played a round in quite some time. I need a new set of clubs really.

Penny Arcade Adventures goes up on PSN today for you American people, if you haven't taken in this game yet then I highly recommend you do if you like some good RPG action. Its $15 so European types should be expecting within the 10 region, possibly a little less. I'll have to think about it as space on my PS3 is becoming slightly premium now that my download game collection is expanding.

Also I resumed play of my Persona 3 save yesterday after about 3 months of neglect. I remembered everything, that's how much that game embedded itself in me. I gotta get FES.

MechaMonkey tomorrow, I'm gonna finish watching the baseball and go to work. Goodnight.

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!
