Welcome, welcome, faithful reader! These recaps are brought to you by ME, everyone's favourite furry. Did you Yanks have a good Thanksgiving? Here's a deal, Britain will have you back, if you behave.

This week was pretty sweet. Elsa gave me a code for the MAG demo, which I haven't been able to play yet due to workloads of work.

I also flicked through my calendar and learned that I am doing the recaps for both Christmas and New Years. I'm looking forward to them! Also, this is the last Friday in November, which means that this decade is almost over. Let's try and make something out of it.

And now, onto the recaps...


*-Exactly, Necro.

*-Congratulations, good sir. You have won Mouse's pick of the day.

*-Everybody, comment on nekobun's blog, or I will set fire to my house.

*-Bullet Magnet. Obscurer Tribune. All you need to know.


A-Evil hotels who discriminate against gamers must be taken down, says Gawii UK.

A-Need a reason to buy a PS3? Read this.

S-Dtunes - Everyday Legend's last day as resident Dtuner.

M- The consequence of sin, as told by Lance Icarus.

A-No console for old men... or women.


One day, I'll put a funny picture or a video here. Until then, you just get a sarcastic comment.


F-360 FNF.

F- Asian FNF. Oops, that should be Euro FNF.

F-Yojimbo is hosting the PS3 FNF, and I want his shoes.

S-Black Friday sucks.


$-UK Gaming Deals GET!

$-Steam deals? Check. ScottyG? Check. That's really all you need.


M- Xzyliac's thoughts on what should be in Rock Band.

F-Excuse me, but why would you punish yourself by watching New Moon? It's just... I... WHY?

F-A summary of Ninja Assassin.

L-One of the wierdest yet funniest things I have seen on Dtoid.


V-Usually, I'd fail this but the guy does have a point.

C-I did not so much as smile at this.

?-What's your morning game?


F-In the imortal words of Kauza: "I'm really sorry to tell you that I don't much like this post. It's not my favorite."

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!
