LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2/9/10 + Snowdayisms

FUCK. YES.

Ladies and gentlemen, color me excited.

For the first time in a damn long time, I'm gonna have a friggin' Snow Day tomorrow! Now I will unfortunately be spending most of my time catching up on schoolwork and being generally boring. But I think I might take some time out for games. I happen to have 3 that I'm about to finish. So I leave it up to you, grand Dtoid community, to tell me what to finish tomorrow. Should I finish Sam and Max Season 2 Ep. 3, The Saboteur, or Saint's Row 2? Try and make my tomorrow interesting, folks.

Alright, onto the recaps. Tonight we've got some unappreciated games getting the Topsauce treatment, the gayest podcast ever, and



*- Tournament results for Fatal Destructoid '98.

*- UglyDuck gives us a great review of the great indie game Icycle.

*- Good Sir Holmes pops in to let us know about some incredible Wiiware titles released this week.

*- Things need to be fixed in the AvP multiplayer. Skribble has a list of those things. I think it is a pretty good list. Yay.

*- Of course, now Dtoid has a legal drama cblog series: MechaMonkey talks about Nintendo v. That Austrailian Pirate on the awesome new VGLaw.

*- The truest blog post I have ever seen on Dtoid.

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!
