LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 11/07/13 + Shadeisms

   0


Well, we certainly had another exciting day today in the Cblogs, didnít we?

Much like Andy Dixonís blog a few weeks ago, a lot of great things were said in Charís blog today, and especially in the comments. I think I speak for a lot of us when I say that seeing Dale, Jordan, Chris and everyone else get into the community to tell us that everythingís going to be alright gave us a much-needed boost in confidence. Me, Iím already curious to see what theyíve got planned for us next week, the little teases. (Oh, and in the mean time congrats to Chris for the promotion!)
At any rate, reading all of what they had to say made more confident in Destructoidís future than Iíve been in a long time. Weíre going to make it through this and weíre doing it together if I have to drag you buttholes kicking and screaming.

...Which makes it kind of ironic that I wonít be having much time for it at all. Now please donít take this as some sort of major announcement or whatever, but I am going to cut back on my Recaps time a little, and if the procrastination demon doesnít get the best of me Dtoid as a whole. All of the schoolwork I have to do simply doesnít allow me to spend too much time on the internet anymore as much as Iíd like to. As much as I like doing the caps, every hour spent on these Ėisms is an hour I couldíve spent finishing that chapter on EU competition law.

Again, and I canít stress this enough, this is by no means a resignation of any sort. Hell, Destructoid is one of the few things keeping me sane right now, so Iíll be damned if Iíll give any of this up. That's just the effect you guys have on me, I guess. Just donít expect any in-depth Shadeisms from me for at least a couple of weeks or any witty pictures grasped from the depths of the internet. Dunno, does anyone expect that from me? Probably not. What you should expect is me to come back swinging once everything is done and dusted. It will happen. Until that time, these Ėisms will probably consist of a few random paragraphs tops, and on the off chance that Iíve had time to play video games a word or two on that.

Either way, Iím going to call it a day now and let the blogs speak for themselves. I swear to god that chapter is getting done today.

Oh, wait. ONE FINAL THING: As I post this it is Friday the 8th of November, which means that today is the last day you can enter my contest! Do you want to win The Typing of the Dead, Dark Souls, The Binding of Isaac, Pathologic and Trine? Then get your fat behind over there and enter! The winner is going to be selected tomorrow as early as I can be bothered, so donít miss it!


* - If there was ever a blog I'd topsauce for the comments alone, this would be it. The comments here are wonderful and reassuring. A big thanks to everyone who voiced their thoughts here, especially to the staff. And a big thanks to Char for voicing his concerns with the site in a reasonable way.

* - And here's the follow-up, with even more wonderful comments. Gratz again Chris (I feel like such a newbie for not remembering you as Magnalon)

A - Valve has been going on the offensive lately. Will it work though?

A - Brings a tear to my eye: UsurpMyProse breaks up with his trusty 360. I hope they find love again.

A - Every once in a while you just come across a game that singlehandedly makes you remember why you are a gamer in the first place. JoyfulSanity just had one of those moments with Pokťmon X.

A - I love blogs about how someone became a gamer. This is Agidyne's!

A - Gearbox has been doing some things spectacularly wrong if you ask GlowBear.

A - Grethiwha gives a quick update on what Jim Sterling is going to be up to in the future, and gives him a proper farewell. Because he deserves it.

C - OpiumHerz won the Blizzcon virtual ticket but doesn't have time to go. Enter his contest, and maybe you'll get to go instead. Also, make sure to check this blog out at least once. Trust me.

I - I've seen you around on the forums, welcome to our turf!

V - A video on teh graphix.

T - Come now, everyone knows Mario is secretly the bad guy. Why else did you think Luigi was afraid of everything? Trauma, I tell you.




? - I have no time to try to comprehend this. So here you go, you try.

V - Pee Wee's Playhouse meets Ninja Gaiden, because why not?

L - Now it's just a matter of time before someone photoshops Mr. Destructoid giving someone a blowjob.

F - Too soon man, too soon.

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!
