BWOMP BWOMP!!!

Hello once again my pretties. ScottyG here giving you a healthy dose of a ScottyGasm.

To be honest I haven't been up to all that much. Got laid off right before PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAX, and spent the week after PAAAAAAAAAAAAAX sick in bed. Since then it's been a lot of sloth and video games with very little in the way of job hunting. I did manage to get a temporary job though which pays depressingly well (compared to the previous jobs I've had), but I do need to get my butt in gear and figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life. ;)

Gamewise I replayed No One Lives Forever (<3) with the intention of making a "Forgotten" Monthly Musing. It's a bit late for that now but I still intend to do a writeup as it's a criminally underrated game and Kate Archer is another perfect example of a good female protagonist that people keep overlooking.

I also played through Tomb Raider Underworld, managing to get 1000GS on it. Planning on doing a review, possibly with more nekkidness. Is it sad that the only two games I have 1000GS on are both Tomb Raider games?

Now if you'll excuse me it is my birthday tomorrow (technically today I suppose), so I best be getting to bed. <3 <3 <3

Also... Tucker Max adverts? I know you gotta pay the bills and all, but WTF Dtoid? Everybody knows that Maddox > Tucker Max a million times over. :)

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!
