Hello everyone! I hope you all had a nice Friday!

So since last week, Final Fantasy VI has been beaten (huzzah!), and I can finally say that it's now one of my favorite Final Fantasies! It was really fantastic, and I'm sad I didn't get into it sooner.

Now I'm sitting here trying to decide what I should play next... I was already in the process of playing Space Channel 5 and Jet Set Radio when Borderlands 2 came out and commanded my attention. Also, The Unfinished Swan, Of Orcs and Men and Retro City Rampage all recently released and I've been wanting to play all of them for quite some time! And then the Dark Souls DLC just came out for consoles a few days ago...

Argh, too many choices! What should I play first??


I already know what knutaf probably thinks I should play first... and actually that's probably what I'll end up choosing, haha.

Also, I recently visited the MCM Expo in London with PK493! Check out my awesome adventure!

* - knutaf thinks everyone should play The Last Express, an intriguing game about trains and murder and intrigue. Looks like I have another game to add to my list...

A - Honoring the fallen in XCOM. Rest in peace, Jerry Seinfeld. What's the deal with aliens anyway?!

A - SephirothX predicts DOOOM for the Devil May Cry reboot, for various plausible reasons.

A - SigfriedLion shares his fond memories of playing Doom in his younger days, brought on by his recent acquisition of Doom: BFG Edition. (Very clever title, by the way!)





F - Friday Night Fights on the 3DS + nerve-wracking games!

F - Friday Night Fights on the 360 + the Red Hot Chilly Billies!

I - Yves Considerably offers up an introductory post full of secret agents, moons and video games.

E - Megakrang will be attending PAX Australia! Any other Dtoiders planning on going?

R - Elect-Nigma reviews Code of Princess, a neat looking title for the 3DS.

T - Resident Evil 6 is apparently so bad that whatsacow can't stop playing it!

$ - October 26th UK releases and bargains.





L - Mr Andy Dixon dreams about choking on dicks, confirmed!

F - Bradley Jones has moved on from The Secret World and will now be telling us all we never cared to know about Guild Wars 2 with his glorious copypastas.

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!
