Oh, lovely, lovely people. Welcome to another edition of the only recaps you care about on Tuesdays. Today, against the will of both my wallet and my wishes to not get another game until Christmas, I bought On The Rain-Slicked precipice of Darkness Episode 2, after having gotten the first episode last week. While I havenít played the game, I just need to take this time to give my immense gratitude and love for Tycho and Gabe, 2 guys who have created one of the greatest gaming empires ever, all because of a small webcomic. Aside from a webcomic, the boys have created gamingís best charity organization, and one of the best RPGs Iíve ever played. CONGRATS ON THE 10 YEARS, GUYS. Canít wait to see what the next 10 has in store.

So, with that out of the way, on to the recaps. The best L4D video youíll ever see, some interesting new blogger additions, and one of the funniest Mr. Sadistic lines Iíve ever read pepper todayís Cblog. Thereís also some other stuff liberally salted down there.

Todayís Cblogs may cause sneezing, tiny scratches and erectile disfunction.

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!
