LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2009/06/29 and ScottyGasms

Once again, amidst all the arguing currently going on in IRC (usual stuff... people who can't take a joke and people who can't drop a matter), another Monday comes to a close. I for one and very thankful that it's over. I'll feel the same way about tomorrow too as Wednesday is Canada Day. Woo!

bushofghosts, I feel your pain. The whole regional thing MS has going with their XBL accounts and points is total bullshit, and haven't been able to get a straight answer from them yet as to why they do it. Thankfully I was able to (on the advice of MS support) to get ahold of the seller and get my refund since it doesn't really say anywhere that I can't use it. Still though. :(

And on a final note before collapsing to bed, and I'm going to be very polite here, SilverDragon1979 is frankly just wrong and really needs to remove the retro-goggles. Not to say the old days sucked as they were pretty awesome too, but I do not believe for one second that the quality of the community or the cblogs has gone down. Just because you don't know the frequent/good/bad cbloggers anymore doesn't mean they aren't as good.


*- The latest installment of dtoid community discusses focuses on AAA titles
*- A very funny and unique review of the Conduit


S- Episode two of STFUAJPGM! GET!
P- Episode 16 of Backwards Compatible podcast is available!
M- Keisal may have just got Rev's seal of approval
M- Heh, I had those same moments in Z&W Dexter345
S- What'd you get this week?
M- Tubatic would like more games to focus on doing clever mechanics well


C- I feel for ya bushofghosts, that whole region crap MS puts on XBL stuff is bullshit
W- Kauza brings us Fallout 3 contest reminder, and love. Dawww...


C- alexBunchOfNumbers wonders what makes an "acceptable" cblog post and amazingly an actual discussion ensued
C- I'm sorry, but like Molotov said nicely written but I'm sick of hearing about this. And there no way that woman is only 50 feet tall
S- A good friend did the same thing with FFXII: hated it at first, but played it awhile later and now loves it
E- I think it's worth losing a dtoid panel at SGC if we get sexual favours from uncle Jimmles
S- Jesus... sounds like walkyourpath has a pretty awesome wife... All the girls I date kept waiting for me to grow out of video games... in favour of watching tv together all evening...
S- HA! megaStryke's mall pictures find their way into the US News!
C- I've always thought of it as being 0-10, which irc has informed me is an 11 point scale
S- As awesome as these are, thank god they aren't real or Scribblenauts would get sued into oblivion


T- How do you just "fall upon" an MMO's homepage?
T- The moral? Don't play with norm9 on your team
T- HydeGFF considers the gaming industry approaching critical mass
T- Actually... that's kind of a cool idea. I agree though... timers suck
D- That... was amazing... and there was some really fancy footwork in the video too :D
T- Velt's thoughts on Starcraft II lacking LAN support
D- I'm not sure CWal37, but I opted in too just in case :D


C- I still think Tanukitsune's missing the point of playing games (I didn't think you "beat" Peggle...), but it isn't fail this time
R- Might've been fail, but those are some awesome pictures
S- I honestly think the cblogs are as good as ever... just the faces keep changing. This one is questionable though :P


F- Sorry, but when you ask what is an acceptable cblog then follow it up with one that you didn't even bother to proofread...
F- Yeah, please stop directing this stuff to the forums. This wouldn't cut it there either

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!
