Unfortunately RandomBullsEye could not be here tonight to bring you his usual installment of the Cblog Recaps, so I have been tasked with taking over his duties. Donít worry he has a great excuse. He is working on finishing up the first build of Bonerquest, which I personally canít wait to play. This is my 3rd time this week filling in for someone else, so donít worry you are in good hands. ;-)

Today my girlfriend and I celebrated Christmas together and opened gifts. We are both huge fans of our college basketball team, the North Carolina State Wolfpack, and the last couple of years we have gone to every single home game together. Well for Christmas she took tons of pictures of us from the basketball games we have been to, and made a huge collage and framed it. I absolutely love it so much I decided I had to immediately hang it on the wall. Well as I was hanging it on the wall it fell, and smashed into hundreds of pieces. Suffice to say, I am a complete idiot. Luckily she should be able to buy a new frame and fix it. Itís a good thing because itís honestly one of the best and most thoughtful gifts I have ever received for Christmas.

Ok thatís enough about me Ö. Letís get to the Recaps Ö. But first hereís your daily dragon picture Ö

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!
