I think my biological clock needs a new battery.

My sleep schedule is all fucked up. I've been going to bed progressively later each night: 2 AM, 3 AM, 4 AM, 5 AM. I get up close to noon still feeling unbelievably tired. This screws up the nights I have to turn in early for work the following morning. You may remember how I squeezed just two hours of sleep a few weeks ago. Well, it happened again this Monday only I decided it wasn't worth the struggle to go to work and thus called in sick.

When I'm not tossing in my bed, I'm feeling sporadic bouts of drowsiness throughout the day. I'm just walking down a store aisle and BAM! I would love nothing more than to be able to drop to the floor right then and there and snooze until my body recovers. Instead, I keep plugging away until the evening and suddenly I'm not tired anymore. I can't stand it.

You can imagine how this affects my mood swings.

So to lighten my spirits... does anyone remember Phoenix Wrong, those Phoenix Wright Flash parodies from a few years back? No? Look what you missed out on:




*- Holmes has questions for Suda 51. We want answers.

GOOD GRAVY, BAUHOUSE- Not only do you continue to draw baseless conclusions, you keep writing about the same tired topic when no one has ever taken you seriously. You are acting like a smart-ass. Stop it.

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!
