It seems that the massive tidal wave of change from Obama getting elected has affected our Cblog Header/Avatar pics and inserts. So not only do those who make under the 250g get a tax break and a pretty pink pony but you'll have to make do with my replacement Header/Avatar pics as well as old school titles. Seems our residential artist extraordinaire Ceark's images are AWOL for the time being. But fret not as this is merely a minor snafu that is being addressed as we speak.

So minor operation aside, what to talk about...Hmm, ah yes, I finally picked up Fallout 3 and I love it. I foresee myself sinking A LOT of time on the game.Also, Snaileb sighting!! He's back! Good to see the gent back here in Dtoid. And now to the recaps. Spoiler Alert: There were some awesome, quirky, strange and just plain fail blogs you may have missed. Let's take a look, shall we? Initiating OLD SCHOOL MODE in 3...2...1... GO!

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!
