Hey nerds! How was your week last week? Mine was pretty much: work, PS4, snow, and Stick It To The Man. All you need to know about work is it blows and I want a new job soon. More importantly, my roommate bought a PS4! I connected my PS+ account to it so we've been playing a bunch of Resogun and Warframe. While the PS4 is a lot of fun I gotta say, I am glad I'm not getting a personal one for awhile.



We also have Contrast and Blacklight; it's kind of great having four free games for a new system right out of the box. We haven't even bought a physical game yet! The game we've played the most though is Netflix. We seriously watched half of season two of American Horror Story in one sitting last night.

Then there was the snow. I'm sure many of you saw some of that shit this week too. In fact it's snowing outside my window as I type this. Snow sure was a lot more fun when you were younger. Oh well, maybe if it snows some more I can get a group together to sled. Any of you enjoyed the snow yet or have you just been bitter like me?

More recently I've been playing through Stick It To The Man on my Vita for review. So far I'm really digging it. I know Ian recently gave it a pretty good score. I get a big Tim Schaffer vibe from the game and I love it. The humor has been a little hit and miss though. I look forward to completing it, look for the review on the next episode of Pocketoid!



Have a good week you cute idiots!

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!
