So, I just got a new room mate. And, boy, oh boy, did I find a goddamn winner. I don’t think I’ve met a more annoying person ever before. Like, this guy won’t. Stop. Talking. About. Every. Little. Thing! Plus, he’s the Halo 3, GOW stereotypical douche kinda gamer, who doesn’t find much substance in gaming. But, it’s finally gotten to the point where I may have to maim him: while playing Mega Man 9 on my 360 earlier this week, he peeks over and said, straight-faced, completely seriously…

“Hey, isn’t that the original Zelda game or some shit?”

Urge to kill rising…rising…

Enough about morons in RL, let’s talk about blogs. On today’s recap, we’ve got killer comments that otherwise made up for bad blogs, lots and lots of Street Fighter 2 Turbo Hyper Gaiden Hyper Turbo HD Whatever editon, and help from somewhere you wouldn’t expect.

A broom is drearily sweeping up the broken pieces of yesterday’s life.
Somewhere a queen is weeping, and somewhere a king has no wife.
And the wind, it cries…

Recaps…

*-Any blog post that starts out with “I am going to start this by using my genitals as an analogy for the DS touchscreen and the Wiimote” is a fucking win in my book.

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!
