LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2/20/10 and 2/21/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

Welcome to another exciting edition of the weekend cblog recaps. I'm your host, SilverDragon1979, and I'll be your guide on your wonderful journey through the heart of the Destructoid community. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask. Also, make sure you keep your hands and feet inside the moving webpage.

Now that that's out of the way, I thought I would mention that I sat down and watched the Halo Legends DVD this weekend. I'm writing a review of it for Gamer Limit, and I have to tell you all that I was pretty impressed for the most part. The DVD consists of 7 short stories, most of which are 15 minutes long, and anyone who's a Halo fan will definitely get a kick out of them. I don't even consider myself a Halo fan and I enjoyed them quite a bit.

I also played a beat Master Blaster Overdrive this week. Unfortunately I had little to no fun playing the game. There were sections of the game so hard that I threw my WiiMote across the room on more than one occasion. Suffice to say, it won't be getting a good review from me, which actually should be posted tomorrow on Gamer Limit.

Now I'm playing Bioshock 2. I'm only about 2 hours in, but so far I'm not impressed at all, which is pretty disappointing. All my friends really enjoyed it though, so I have my fingers crossed that it eventually gets better. Did anyone else play the game? Did you enjoy it?

Well that's enough about me for one weekend. After all, you didn't come to hear my jabber about. You came for the cblog recaps, so let's get on with them shall we ....

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!
