Hello once again my lovely Dtoiders! I knew you all couldn't get enough of me over the holidays, so here I am with a slightly belated Friday recap. :D

Why is this belated you ask? Well, for starters I was a bit sick last night. After a nap, despite still being sick, I thought it would be a good idea to play some Team Fortress 2 (try the free weekend! :D :D :D) to see the Demo/Soldier updates. 5 hours later, I realized I was a bit too out of it for the recaps. So here I am, watching Futurama commentaries and doing the recaps.

As someone who has played TF2 regularly for most of the 2+ years it's been out, you might be wondering what I think of the update. My initial impression is that it definitely changes up the way the characters are played. Losing the shotgun really cripples the soldier, but as a lone wolf reducing splash damage and having a potentially devastating melee attack (seriously... holy shit the Equalizer is powerful) make up for it. For the more group focused player the Buff Banner looks like it could be as good as a Kruber. For Demo the Targe and Eyelander really have made it into a different character. Haven't really seen enough of the Scottish Resistance, but even with the "slower" priming rate the idea of what looks like a pure upgrade for stickies still worries me.

Anyways, enough of that I'm going to wrap this up so I can fail at drawing and watch Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland. Happy holidays everybody! <3

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!
