LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 11/14/13 + Shadeisms

Can’t talk, utterly humongous paper on the legal evaluation of the law on protection of personal data. Due in approximately "way too soon".

I do want to take a moment to thank Andy Dixon again for promoting my blog last week. That was a very pleasant surprise, and I fucking love the header he made. I saved the everloving shit out of it. Once again, I was completely stunned how well a blog that just consists of “here are 10 awesome things” went over with everyone. We’re at 75 comments now (it’s such a weird feeling that one of my blogs has a “load more comments” button ) and there’s not a single negative one in there. I consider that a massive victory. So again, thanks to everyone.

Also, going back to that paper for a second: it turns out that listening to ridiculously hyperactive music while you’re writing a paper works surprisingly well. Who would’ve thought, right? So here ya go, have some CAPS and some DragonForce. (you didn’t think I was lying when I said that I went looking for DragonForce albums, did you?)

*Dives back into the pile of paperwork*






I know what you're about to ask, and the answer is no. No, I don't understand a word of it either.

A - While the 7th generation of video games has been great, it wasn't ALL good. Plombo thinks the big leagues have gotten to scared of taking risks lately.

A - All you really need to know about this blog is that it features the phrase "don't be a flaming pile of mermaid shit". Oh, and something about not taking reviews too seriously I guess.

C - So I'm not entirely sure what Comikaze is (I assume a comicbook event?) but you can win stuff from it! Swag, even!

C - OpiumHerz wants to make a new podcast for Destructoid, but he needs your ideas. Help make Radio Dtoid a thing!

N - Do you want to be a cheating scumbag in GTA V? Sure ya do! modtkone has some nice cheats in store for you.

R - SeymourDuncan reviews the new Ratchet & Clank game. He liked it too!





L - Goddammit Carter, what have you done?! Think of all the people you just got heart attacks with that SHAMEFUL 6.5. It's a good thing we have Benny Disco to tell it to you straight, because we shouldn't have to stand for this.

V - Jagger Gravning has a video interview with a Finnish indie dev. Also naked pixelated ginger.

May you always find water and shade

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!
