Thanksgiving is my favorite time of the year! Not only because I get to see family and eat all of the delicious foods, but also because it happens near my birthday. This year, my birthday fell on Thanksgiving day! I celebrated by playing board games with the family and eating too much turkey, cranberries, pumpkin pie, and sweet potatoes! My god, I could eat nothing but sweet potatoes for the rest of my life and be content. Seriously, boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew... I'll eat them however they're cooked. They are unquestionably my favorite food.


Oh god, I just googled sweet potatoes and now I want them inside of me so bad.

Black Friday also happened, but I didn't buy anything this year. I only went out on Black Friday once in my life, to buy a laptop because my old one had just died (after I spilled Coke on it... oops). It was a crazy experience, and I haven't really felt the desire to go anywhere on Black Friday since. There were some great deals though, I'm sure. Anybody get anything good?

I'm gonna keep things short this week because I'm still relaxing on my holiday break. I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving!

* - Roberto Plankton's art and words are always entertaining. This time, he explores himself by creating self portraits inspired by several games. I'd say the Nemesis one is my favorite of the bunch.

A - StriderHoang expected more adventure out of Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage? Sad day...

F - Friday Night Fights on the 360 + Food comas!

F - Friday Night Fights on the PS3 + More food comas!

C - Kwamouflage plans to blog more often from now on and keep his various series going.

T - The Walking Dead is HightowersWorld's game of the year, no question!

T - TheKodu actually kind of liked the new Devil May Cry demo! Here's what he thought about it.

$ - November 23rd UK releases and bargains!

A - The webcomic Ctrl-Alt-Del appears to be officially over, and nekobun is thankful. Also, I've watched the video he posted at the end of the blog at least 5 times already.

F - Bankrupt Gamer finally watched the Star Wars movies for the first time and reviews them.

R - TroyFullbuster tells us what's been going on in his life this month. Then he hates on Thanksgiving? What the heck, dude?



I am thankful for no fails this week!

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!
