Cblogs of 11/21/09 and 11/22/09 + SilverDragonisms


So I spent all day Saturday at a Modern Warfare 2 LAN party. It was pretty disappointing considering Infinity Ward has disabled the ability to gain experience during LAN play. Absolutely nothing you do counts toward advancing your character. It's extremely annoying and it completely ruined the game for all of us. We attempted to go online, but getting all 9 people online from one location was not the easiest thing in the world. Suffice to say, MW2's LAN capability is complete crap and will probably make it a game that is never played at LAN parties.

Honestly, Modern Warfare 2 is about the only thing I've played the last week. I finally beat the single player, and that was some completely over-the-top shit. Did anyone else get completely confused as to what was going on plat wise those last 3-4 missions. I was having no problems following the story up to that point, and then the game just lost me. I personally think the ending to Modern Warfare 1 was much much better.

I'm just really looking forward to the Thanksgiving holiday this coming weekend. I'm gonna use the time to catch up on some other gaming, which includes DJ Hero, Brutal Legend, Batman: AA, and probably New Super Mario Bros Wii. Trust me when I say that Wednesday night can't get here soon enough.

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!
