Hello once again my darlings. It's a shame I have to constantly share my love with you all on Mondays of all days, but let's just see this as a nice way to start the week, and to get prepped for the weekend. <3

Gaming wise things have been interesting. I'm officially "done" with LEGO Batman. I was hoping to play it to 100% completion, but I just couldn't bring myself to. The biggest disappointment was oddly enough that they just put too much stuff in it. Too many different abilities, too many obscure puzzle solutions, too many power ups that may be cool but you won't unlock until the end of the game when it won't matter. Just... too much. I'm hoping to be able to trade it in for a copy of LEGO Start Wars: TCS. Sure it's simpler, but it was more fun. Since stopping that I've started Assassin's Creed, and after 3 of the 9 assassinations I can see where people were coming from when they said it gets repetitive. I'll post more thoughts after I've made more progress.

I also got a few packages in the mail over the last week, as part of the Dtoid amazing game trading forum of justice! The first was from Wedge which game on Friday, and the second from Funktastic came today. I'm still waiting on Dyson's package, and when I do I'll share just what I got. In the meantime you all should go to the forums and check out what people have to offer. :)

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!
