I spent this evening in an itchy sweater depicting 2 gentlemen fishing for large-mouth bass.

A friend of mine is moving to New Mexico for a few months. She’s the kind of friend who enjoys it when her friends do weird and stupid shit. So I had the idea of doing ugly sweater pics with a handful of friends. If you’ve never done anything like that with your close group of friends, reconsider. It’s a fucking awesome time acting like complete jackasses, especially when the end result of jackassery is great photos like this:







Jesus Christ, it’s days like today that make me fall in love with the community. We have probably the most Topsauced blogs ever, discussion about Disney villains, and a little Fail to piss in your coffee. Enjoy.



*-So Chad Concelmo made a list of the best Disney villains, which stevenxonward added to, and ace of knaves got pissed about.

*-Xzyliac continues his incredible series on bands grossly under-represented in Rock Band.

*-Togail. Do I need to say anything further?

*-Elsa helps to make the season bright with these fucking awesome Christmas traditions. I am SO TOTALLY doing the Christmas journal!

*-Ali D takes a great in-depth look at a game I just finished, Dead Space, in light of the sequel announcement.

*-Arkhon defends Rock band and Guitar Hero in the best way possible.

*-Technophile attempts to get a Dtoid WoW guild going, and muses about his time in Azeroth.

*-A wonderful selection of indie shmups, presented by Diverse.

*-Sevil Monthly Muses about the game stories that pull a Fonzie towards the end.

*-randombullseye expounds on his hatred for getting rid of games, either by trading or borrowing.

*-If you didn’t catch it on the front page, here’s an account of the Dtoid UK crew taking over the Capcom Christmas party.



S-Wanna see some pics of a PS3 Slim and a cute puppy?

S-Nick Chester tells us something we already knew.

M-Love/Hate: The scary side of gaming.

P-Remember how nice it was not having FAILCAST record last week? Well, sadly those liars are back to try and record again.



S-nekobun takes the reins for his 2nd day of dTune-age.



V-Miss any of the No More Heroes 2 virals? Check out this great compendium from ShadesofDante.

T-mollygos loves Majora’s Mask, and if you read her blog, you probably will too.

T-What’s your opinion on custom soundtracks for games? Check out GiftofGab’s blog on the subject.



F-There’s a reason this has no comments or faps.

F-Xzyliac was right.

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!
