Hey all my fellow Dtoid community members. I hope you've all had a good weekend. I ended up celebrating Halloween a week early this Friday night. I dressed up as Rorschach from Watchmen and my girlfriend dressed up as a forest fairy. I have to admit that both of our costumes looked extremely awesome. I plan on posting pictures from the part sometime this week, so be on the look out for them.

I spent most of the week playing Uncharted 2 and loving it. It has some of the best multiplayer, if not the best, I've played all year. I just can't seem to put the controller down. You should check out my official review over at Gamer Limit if you get a chance.

This week I'll be putting all my time and effort into Borderlands on the PC. I have been really excited to play this for a while, and after hearing a lot of people rave about it, I'm ready to dive in head first. I should have a review posted for the game by sometimes next weekend, assuming all goes according to plan.

So I'm curious as to what all of you plan on dressing up as for Halloween. Feel free to share in the comments. :-)

Now onto your regularly scheduled weekend cblog 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!
