Well my darlings, it's time for another Monday's recap. Amazing I've done this in near record time too. <3

So there's obviously a lot of talk about E3, and from what I've been hearing so far that Natal motion sensing camera is the talk of the show. Curious to see if it becomes more than a neat gadget with tech demos for games, although I'm sure the community game developers will come up with something interesting.

Not too much to report gaming wise. Been playing little else aside from Demigod, which I'm finally starting to find my stride in. Unfortunately everyone else has already gotten the hang of it, so now I'm just putting up a bit of a fight again. If you decide to pick it up feel free to join the Steam group and play with some fellow dtoiders! :)

Sorry to cut this short, but my stomach is about to turn itself inside out so I'm going to go to bed. :(

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!
