Cblogs of 12/28/12 and bbainisms

   0


Woah, you guys, there's a meme going on in the Cblogs! Do you know what this means? It's time to break out the old Memetoid banner and dust that bad boy off! When was the last time this thing was used, anyway? I have no idea. I'm not even sure where it normally belongs, so I just sort of improvised. I suppose the 10 Things blogs could have counted as a meme, but they all ended up topped with sauce anyway.

To honor this momentous event, I shall indulge you all in my own name's Urban Dictionary meaning. Let's see...

Benjamin: Short or slang expression for a 100 dollar bill, 'cause Benjamin Franklin's face is on the front side of it.

What is in this bag? -- it's full of benjamins!

Oh... oh yeah. My name is a slang term which actually belongs in Urban Dictionary. No huge cocks or godlike powers for me! Thanks a lot, Ben Franklin!







* - Astonishingly BAdass has earned the all-powerful abilities of the admin in a Counter-Strike server, where he likes to--"Need a dispensah here! Need a dispensah here! Need a dispensah here!" ...dear god.

* - Carter's Quest 2013: Mega Man X! Holy wow, there are a lot of Mega Man X games apparently. I don't know how you do it, Chris!

S - Cyrus begins a new series, Have You Ever Wondered? For the first entry, he wonders about RPG character animations.

A - Ryan in Seattle wonders what the best career path would be for a teenager hoping to enter the gaming industry.

A - Fly Pro will remember 2012 as the year he went on amazing space adventures, slayed massive dragons, and became one with the Miiverse.

A - KingSigy felt he was rushed through playing Spec Ops: The Line, and didn't have enough time to appreciate the story.





F - Friday Night Fights on the PC + Steam sales!

F - Friday Night Fights on the PS3 + Button mashing!

F - Friday Night Fights on the 360 + ChillyBilly's favorite games of 2012!

F - Friday Night Fights on the Wii U + Does no one have a Wii U?

R - Solar20XX gives us a review of DJMax: Technika Tune, in which you touch notes. Touch those notes! TOUCH THEM!

A - Another Podtoid poster by Sir Tobbii. Waaaaaaayuuauauauuiiiiuyaagh!


M - Shane: "Amazing, unforgettable, Shane's animal bulge. Shane."

M - "I love my Christopher, forever and always. That soldier, he keeps me sane. (="

M - I need to find this "Handy" Mirandy person. She sounds nice!

M - "When I walked in on Thomas in the bathroom, I never knew a white boy could be so huge!" Possible intro to an interracial porno?

M - "Wow... that guy can make pie appear at his fingertips... he is such a Kellen."

M - Oh Jeeze, I'm definitely not bored with this Nia." Also, kudos to Pixielated for actually turning this meme into an informative intro blog!

M - Oh no... it seems this meme has ruined Nic's day. It's all fun and games until someone's name is a racially charged slang term.

V - A new gameplay video of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate has surfaced!

F - The forums are that-a-way, buddy.

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!
