Howdy y’all! So, Mr. Squid is feeling a bit under the weather tonight, so your resident DOMO-KUN loving, compulsive collecting, just generally funktastic recapper is stepping in tonight.

So, with everyone super busy, has anyone actually got to play games a lot lately? I know I haven’t been able to put in nearly as much time as I’ve liked, but here are some of my thoughts on what I’ve managed to squeeze in.

Modern Warfare 2 is hella sweet! I’ve managed to play through the single player and found the story to be really compelling, believable, and well written. It was pretty intense at the end too, as I literally thought the game “ended” like 5 times before I actually got to the end. Spec Ops was a nice addition as well, and I’ve managed to get 3 stars on all of them except for Snatch & Grab, which is one of the most bullshit things I’ve played. If anyone has actually beat that mission on Veteran, PLEASE tell me how to do it! As for multiplayer, the 34873487 things you can unlock are both really cool and lame, as it’s cool that there’s so much stuff, but for people like myself who try to unlock/max everything, it’s a pain in the ass.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days is quite the interesting game. If you’re a fan of Kingdom Hearts and actually followed the story in the other games, you’ll definitely like this one a lot more than the average person. While the gameplay is like the others in the series, the one thing I actually really like is the “panel” system of “leveling/upgrading” your character.

Also, with Christmas coming up, anyone who lives in the States and has access to great stores like Target or such, send me a private message or something, since you guys get these badass DOMO-KUNs! ^_^ Onto the recaps!

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!
