LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/1/09 + Earlyisms

Hey kids. Early recaps are early due to feminine troubles. No, I donít mean that Iím on my period or I cut myself while doing the dishes. Itís a long story, and Iíd rather take my mind off it with a bit of news.

I hate to be a whore for my work, but I recently got a gig writing for Negative Gamer. Yesterday I posted a story about my time trying to get LEGO: Rock Band for free from Old Navy. Itís probably my favorite piece that Iíve ever written. And if it wouldnít be too much to ask, would you kindly take a look at it, and tell me what you think? Iím real proud about it, and more kind words/criticisms about it would really help me out.

Alright, now that Iím done doing the internet equivalent of hooking, letís get to the recaps! On todayís show weíve got brilliant storage solutions, a rare batch of news posts, and God in the Mushroom Kingdom.



*-Ever wanted to create the perfect gaming set-up, keeping the kids in mind? Everyoneís favorite craineum came up with the bitchiníest solution ever.

*-Want to ask any of the Divinity II staff a question? Ask WastelandTraveler, and heíll send it along when he interviews them.

*-Hot damn, sister: Faith made some fucking saweet baby Mario and baby Luigi picture frames.

*-Aside from the link to a great article about video game documentaries, and thoughts about Assassinís Creed 2, Rev. Anthony gets my seal of approval for the last line in this blog.

*-A bit of a eulogy for a fallen website, a Niero appearance, and frank discussions about gaming blogs make this and the comments within a good read.

*-As a kid, Excremento and his friend had a genius idea for Battletoads that he talks about in this interesting Musing.

*-randombullseye gives us a great look at the not-downloading side of gaming.

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!
