Cblogs of 12/25/08 + ScottyGasms

Happy Holidays everyone! Hope you all spent it with some loved ones, ate too much good food, and possibly got a good haul of presents as well. I know I did. :)

I've also decided to start a new Christmas tradition: watching the "Christmas With the Joker" episode of the Batman animated series. For those who have never seen it this is what you're missing out on:


Seeing as there was no Cblog recaps yesterday, I'll just do the ones starting with the beginning of Christmas day.


*- Randombullseye gives us Bonerquest
*- Yeah, I'm topsaucing my own cblog. On top of it being awesome and getting front-paged, it's a nice perk for doing recaps :p


S- Latest episode of dTunes, featuring SilverDragon1979's 12 days of Christmas song


E- Possibly late Persona 4 entry


S- eBay and Sony do a tag team on poor Edco
H- Darkknight37's basement setup, updated with new tv
C- NihonTiger90 looks back at 500 cblog posts
S- Some favourite game moments, but how did he get time to place all those proximity mines?


R- Castle Crashers review. Hella late, but at least they actually waited for that goddamn patch...
T- L4D community is nice, yay!
T- A top ten, and several other lists waiting to pounce on the unwary web-surfer
N- List of game translations that were released recently
R- Rather brief "review" of Tomb Raider Underworld
N- European VC releases. Yay, Secret of Mana!!


F- Fox owns rights to a Watchmen movie. Boo...
M- Insane Ian got 3rd place in some contest with this WoW song. Not bad
F- <3 Wallace and Gromit, and must see this
A- Same sketch that Krow linked to (below), but the link actually works


R- Sounds like Freefall got 12 games for Christmas... Cunt...
R- Another Christmas haul. Yay Batman animated series! <3
L- Failure on the GameTrailers forums
R- Yet another Christmas haul. Join us on FNF for TF2! :D
L- I'm a Canadian Dtoider! Gimme my present now damnit!
R- Christmas wishes, as only BigPoppaGamer can
V- Followup to the fail announcement post. Stream of a few good movies
C- Conspiracy theories and lack of avatars abound!


F- Apparently bad grammar and insults don't make people want to watch movies with you
S- Meh, video wasn't good when it was first released. Also, lolz for thinking the iPhone is a gaming system
F- If there was a Fail of the Day, this'd be it. Just the Digg link is enough to clinch it. Fuck Digg
S- I've never seen that before, but Hamza says they've always been there so I won't argue
F- Krow shows us why you apparently need to put a title in your cblog. Can't even link to the entry so just linking to their profile. Shame, as it's a nice sketch
F- Giant thread in the forums for just this thing buddy, but amazingly the community wasn't very harsh on them

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!
