Hello all! If you didn't read the recap for Monday you might be wondering why I'm doing a Friday recap. No big deal really, just Garison and I switched days for this week. Sorry that it's on Saturday morning and not Friday night, but you know how Friday nights can be. ;)

Fairly interesting few weeks gaming wise. I traded in CoD4... again... and picked up Demigod. Completely agree with the review... great multiplayer game which is unfortunately hampered by the shitty Impulse service and inability to be successfully run through Steam. Honestly... if you're going to make a competitor to Steam at LEAST make it as good as Steam. Have more manageable friends list, ingame voice chat, instant messaging. I might not mind all this as much if I could run it through Steam, however while you technically can the Steam overlay doesn't work, which defeats the whole purpose.

Aside from that, I actually blogged again, talking about some trades I made recently through the Dtoid trading forum. I do have some more things I'd like to trade though, so I'll be making a new thread maybe today... assuming I can tear myself away from napping/video games.

Now if you'll excuse me, instead of catching up on sleep like I should be, I have some TF2 unlocks to get... Fucking Valve and their bullshit unlock systems...

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!
