Hello hello once again my pretties! Time once again for me to fill in a gaping hole in the recap week with a massive, overflowing ScottyGasm.

I think I mentioned that I got laid off at the end of August. Well, I started a temp job this week for the provincial election... group I guess it'd be called. Going to be in the election office where people can go to fix/add/remove their voter information, or fill out a special ballot. I was told up front that it will be fairly boring and uneventful, but fufills the government's mandate of providing service. Plus it sadly pays exceedingly well.

Gamewise I'm almost done Professor Layton 2. I LOVE it, but like all puzzle games there's no real replay value and I'll be getting rid of it as soon as I'm done it. I might pass it on to a friend rather than trade it in though. I got ODST from my sisters on Saturday, but I've put about a half hour into it. I keep saying hopefully tomorrow I'll get more gaming time, but with this internet addiction who knows?

Right... I need to get some sleep for work tomorrow. Time to finish up this mess of a ScottyGasm, and wipe it clean on your cheek. *puts on cape and flies off*

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!
